What a week for Joe’s Typos, who took every category apart from a tie in wins and a narrow defeat in average. Ian Kinsler provided power (but not much average) while decent weeks from Joey Votto (9 RBIs) and Andre Ethier helped Joe to the top of the table.

Not a great week for my bullpen, with no saves and no holds with Justin Masterson in the Red Sox rotation. Still, my starting staff carried the weight. Curtis Granderson was my star hitter, belting four homers. Bonestalkers could have won RBIs but with Doumit joining Glaus and Duchscherer on the bench (but not on the DL) they were short-handed.

The Angels had a very poor offensive week, batting just .199 as a team with only two homers as well as no saves or holds from the bullpen. The Angels’ ERA and WHIP were impressive though. The Nationals went homer crazy, hitting 13 in a week with 46 runs, 54 RBIs and a team average of .357 – phenomenal stuff! Pujols, Carloss Lee and Brandon Inge all had big weeks, as did Ellsbury with six steals.

A close matchup saw a tie between JJ and Chris. The Whos were helped by plenty of runs (eight from Youkilis) while Torii Hunter was the Stuff’s star performers.

The Chasers ran out comfortable 8-2 winners over Tribal Warfare, belting 14 homers and hitting .347 as a team. The pitching categories were closer, but the inspired pick of Zack Grienke is paying off brilliantly for the Chasers.

A great week for Russ as his Giants shutout the Bats 10-0, ending the week comfortably ahead in most of the categories. Prince Fielder and Grady Sizemore had good weeks, and with Joe Mauer due back soon, things are looking up for the Giants. It wasn’t a good week for the Bats’ pitching staff, as almost all of the starters were roughed up for a 7.03 ERA.

A good win for SWAT, who took four of the hitting categories and five of the pitching stats. SWAT’s outfield of Werth, Markakis and Adam Jones turned in another good performance, as did Dustin Pedroia. The pitchers only managed two wins (one from a reliever) but it proved to be enough. The Bangers need to use their DL and add some extra players to fill in.
 
These results leave the Typos top of the pile, two games ahead of SWAT. JJ is just half a game further back in third. Russ moves up to 4th, while Matt and I have identical records in 10th and 11th.

    Go on the mighty Typos!

    I know this is a below-average (and injured) team riding a small-sample-size wave — and I suspect this will be my only week at the top — but I’m going to enjoy it.

    After two weeks of disappointment, finally a winning week for the Cheddar Chasers.

    My offence sprung into life at last. I thought I had jinxed myself by dropping Jay Bruce to the bench, only to see him homer in the 1st game. I reinstalled him to the lineup and, thankfully, he carried on hitting. I like to think that his return to form for the Reds was solely down to me giving him a wake-up call by dropping him!

    Ah, what happened to the Border Bats? Crushed utterly! I blame Chien Ming Wang. In fact, I will blame him every time something goes wrong from now on.
