The Sox had a perfect week, defeating Bits & Bytes 12-0. Goldschmidt, Semien and Hunter were the star hitters, while five different pitchers collected wins and Perkins, Robertson and Betances took care of saves and holds. Bits & Bytes are several players light as injured men are not on the DL.

Batteries Essential gave my Isotopes a hammering, winning 9-2 thanks to an offensive sweep. Russell Martin hit .588 for the week and joined Brantley in hitting two homers while four players had multi-steal weeks. Bumgarner and Garza helped take strikeouts, WHIP and ERA. Rodney and Dunn helped salvage saves and holds, but a very slow start to the week for my offense proved costly.

    Sometimes you need to be lucky in H2H. This week wasn’t one of those. Only Weston would have won a matchup against me this week other than the RiverKings, and then only by the narrowest of margins. Against 6 other teams I would have won at least 9 cats (including the Chasers who I would have beaten 11-1 and yet won 8-2!!).

    Wrong week, wrong team…!
