After already having suffered through -4 rough weeks, this week was no better for TEABAGGERS as they continue to tumble down the rankings. They had trouble all over the place, dropping in five separate stat categories, including a two spot fall in ERA. Jesse Chavez stuck out as the worst performer, recording a 13.50 ERA in 7 and 1/3 innings. That caused TEABAGGERS to fall from 2nd to 4th in the ERA standings, 0.10 ERA behind SKINS. Things weren’t better in other categories, as TEABAGGERS fell from 9th to 10th in the overall rankings.

Welington Castillo had been quiet in the RBIs category since week eleven’s performance, but finally awoke from his slumber this week. Castillo totaled 6 RBIs while leading SPACE COWBOYS to 46 RBIs overall. His RBI performance this week ended a five week streak of failing to perform at a league average level in that category. SPACE COWBOYS stayed in 1st place in the RBIs standings.
Just Forget It
SMOKING GUNS are just showing off in the home runs category at this point. They dominated the HRs category this week, clobbering 17 of them. Coach Quinn, Cavan Quinn’s squad was led by the three-headed-monster of Matt Davidson, Kendrys Morales, and Rougned Odor, who together got 9 of their team’s 17 HRs. SMOKING GUNS are now 16 HRs ahead of 2nd place team SPACE COWBOYS.
On the Cusp
SKINS spent another week in the 2nd position overall, but sits in a good position to improve next week. They’ve got real good chances to move up in batting average, home runs, wins, and ERA. Positive moves in each of those spots would give SKINS 72 category points overall, and a likely 1st place position.
SCHNOOKERS were already struggling this season, and that was before they collectively took week seventeen off. They were bringing up the rear this week, coming up with only 24.5 category points. SCHNOOKERS finished in last place in WHIP and ERA with a 1.86 WHIP and a 6.75 ERA, and also finished 11th in RBIs, batting average, and home runs. They stayed in 11th place in the overall standings this week.
