SALUKIS recorded a 5.08 ERA last week, but really turned things around this week. They came through to the tune of a 1.12 ERA. That total set the curve this week. As a result, SALUKIS jumped up seven spots and into 2nd in the ERA standings.
The Gang’s All Here
SCHNOOKERS have now crawled out of the basement and into 11th place overall. They can attribute the move to good performances in three stat categories, including moving up five places in home runs. A league-high nine different players contributed in that category, with Robinson Chirinos (3 HRs) leading the way. Those 3 HRs were the most that any catcher collected this week.
World’s Best Cheerleader
Coach Denton had more than enough production in the RBIs category this week. SPACE COWBOYS produced the week’s 2nd best performance in the RBIs category despite leaving Justin Smoak and his 6 RBIs on the bench. Smoak’s performance was better than every other bench-rider in the league. SPACE COWBOYS moved up from 3rd to 2nd in the RBIs standings.
Swing and a Miss!
TEABAGGERS‘s hitters might be in need of an eye exam after they posted a .175 BA this week. They were practicing their manners as they put everyone ahead of themselves in the BA category. Coaches Kent Johnson and Patrick Whelan will have a hard time pinning the blame on any particular player. TEABAGGERS had ten underperformers, with Marwin Gonzalez (a .000 BA) being the worst. As a result, TEABAGGERS tumbled all the way from 3rd to 11th in the batting average standings, and also fell from 4th to 8th in the overall rankings.

DEADWOODS moved up five spots into 1st place after tallying a 0.74 WHIP. They had plenty of players step up in that category, as six starters beat the league average. Justin Wilson
