Around the League: Period 20 Recap

Check out this article to see information, stats, and recaps from the league’s action this week.

Leave it to Me

VladimirGuerreroJr080519Photo by USATSISHAMS got the league’s top batting average performance this week from Vladimir Guerrero. Guerrero hit .500 while leading SHAMS to a .262 BA overall. His two-homer, four-RBI Thursday night made MLB history for the youngster with a five-game RBI stretch no one else his age has accomplished before. SHAMS moved up the batting average standings for the 2nd straight week, going from 3rd to 2nd.

Closing Time

DEADZONES have been struggling in the saves category this season, but looked good this week. They were saving like they grew up in the depression, notching four overall. That was the highest save total of any team this week. As a result, DEADZONES moved up from 12th to 11th in the saves standings.

Team Effort

They improved their rank in three stat categories, including moving up two places in home runs. They had more players helping out in the category than any other team, with ten total contributors, and five (including Miguel Cabrera) who banged out 2 HRs. Cabrera’s performance this week ended a four game streak of failing to hit his projections.

Yikes

They were practicing their manners as they put every other team ahead of themselves in the WHIP category this week. David Price was clearly the weakest link for Coach DeMonte and the gang as he recorded a 3.14 WHIP in 7 innings. CITY SLICKERS II fell down the WHIP standings for the 2nd straight week, moving from 5th to 6th.

Just Forget It

SPACE COWBOYS are now 30 RBIs ahead of 2nd place team DEADZONES.
