Leave no team behind

They were practicing their manners as they put every other team ahead of themselves in the WHIP category this week. Alex Cobb was clearly the weakest link for Coaches Francis Bujak and Guy Mawhinney and the gang as he produced a 3.75 WHIP in 2 and 2/3 innings. As a result, DEADWOODS now sits at the bottom of the WHIP standings, 0.01 WHIP behind SALUKIS. In addition, DEADWOODS fell from 8th to 10th in the overall rankings.

SKINS apparently didn’t gain any momentum from last week’s 4 win performance. They had a week to forget, winning only 1 game. Coaches Mark Hodgkins and Frank Grzegorzewski’s squad suffered from eight zeros in that category, one of which came from Michael Pineda, who also sported a 14.73 ERA and put up a 2.18 WHIP. That caused SKINS to fall from 1st to 2nd in the wins standings. Things weren’t better in other categories, as they dropped big time in the overall rankings, moving from 4th to 8th.

SCHNOOKERS are running away with the stolen bases category because of weeks like this one. They pulled off some master thievery this week, racking up 11 stolen bases. Coach Schneller’s squad had two main stars in Tim Anderson and Jonathan Villar, who together recorded 8 stolen bases. SCHNOOKERS are now 8 stolen bases ahead of 2nd place team SPACE COWBOYS.

Moving on Up

Colt 45s rocketed up the overall standings this week, moving up three spots into 4th place. They can attribute the move to good performances in four stat categories, including moving up one spot in home runs. Eddie Rosario was the leader in that area for Colt 45s this week, cranking out 6 HRs to go along with 9 RBIs. Rosario is on quite a hot streak, having launched more HRs than any other starting player over the last three weeks.
