Around the League: Period 23 Recap
Photo by USATSIDEADWOODS did not have a good week in the WHIP category, producing a 1.53 WHIP. Coaches Francis Bujak and Guy Mawhinney might be seeing more bad performances in that category due to some bad personnel news. Chris Sale apparently will not need Tommy John surgery but he has been officially shut down for the rest of the season just as he was heating back up.

Colt 45s‘ batters didn’t leave their teammates hanging this week as they accumulated 58 RBIs. That’s the best result that any team this season has had in the RBIs category. Kyle Seager led a very balanced group of nine overperformers for Colt 45s this week, posting 9 RBIs. That Hank Aaron-esque performance pushed Colt 45s from 7th to 5th in the RBIs standings.

SPACE COWBOYS are running away with the home runs category because of weeks like this one. They weren’t messing around when it came to HRs this week, launching 19 of them. Jonathan Villar separated himself from the rest of the crew on SPACE COWBOYS, blasting 5 HRs to go along with 6 RBIs and a .333 BA in 27 at bats. SPACE COWBOYS are miles, well, 42 HRs, ahead of MASTERBLASTERS.
SCHNOOKERS got the league’s top stolen base performance this week from Delino DeShields. DeShields swiped 4 bases while leading SCHNOOKERS to 5 stolen bases overall. He hasn’t been messing around recently, recording more stolen bases than any other starting player over the last three weeks. Despite that, SCHNOOKERS stayed in 2nd place in the stolen bases standings, 3 stolen bases behind MASTERBLASTERS. SCHNOOKERS fell from 5th to 6th in the overall rankings.
SKINS remains in 10th place overall for the 8th straight week, despite some sub-par performances. They got poor results in three stat categories, including a three spot drop in batting average. Two players stood out for their poor performance, with Bubba Starling and Danny Jansen combining to post a .000 BA. Jansen’s performance this week definitively ended a three game streak of beating the experts’ projections.
