The Butchers are in second after their 7-3 win against Norwich in a matchup which was a fair bit closer than the final score suggests. Wong (eight runs, three homers, three steals), Gennett (seven runs, two homers) and Kalhoun (nine runs, two homers) did a lot of the offensive damage, while Price (two wins, 16 strikeouts) was the pick of the pitchers, with Garrett Richards and Odorizzi each striking out 15. McCutchen (four homers, eight RBIs) had a great week for Norwich, as did Seager (three homers) while Chapman had four saves and All-Star Neshek collected a pair of holds.

Jesmond gor the better of my Isotopes 7-4. Trout (11 runs, three homers, 11 RBIs) and Pujols (eight runs, a homer, eight RBIs) were in unstoppable form, while Hawkins, Perkins, Broxton and O’Day took saves and holds while Tillman and Fister claimed ERA and WHIP comfortably. Machado homered three times for my team, as didf Frazier, who joined Rios and Utley in swiping two bases. Six different pitchers won games, with Leake striking out 14.

Finally, Batteries Essential and the Angels couldn’t be separated, ending 5-5. Davis, walker, Brantley and Billy Hamilton helped Batteies essential have the better of the offense, while Chen won both his starts. The Angels had multi-win weeks from Iwakuma, Bauer and Buchholz, who struck out at least 15 batters each.

Riverkings Active In Trade Market

A week after a blockbuster with the Knights, the Riverkings made another deal, acquiring Yoenis Cespedes from Batteries Essential for Alex Wood. The deal gives the Riverkings another power option who can play CF, albeit the average may take a hit. Batteries Essential were trading from a position of depth to nab a much-needed arm. We’ll see if Wood can boost the rotation as the Braves race for the playoffs.

The week 16 matchups are as follows

Chasers (1st) v Angels (15th)

Butchers (2nd) v Batteries Essential (3rd)

Isotopes (4th) v Norwich (5th)

Beck ‘Nams (6th) v Iron Men (10th)

Bananas (7th) v RBIs (12th)

Jesmond (8th) v Slugs (11th)

Knights (9th) v Sox (14th)

Riverkings (13th) v Bits & Bytes (16th)
