Greetings from ‘lovely’ Portland, otherwise known as God’s Country. Could have fooled me; God must cry a lot. The game of the week didn’t turn out to be much of a game at all as HOLY COW survives two major injuries (Greinke, Reyes) and STILL easily wins 7-2-1 over fellow Cubs fan I Trust Theo. This puts HC at the top of the standings; get that man a Budweiser! Other highlights:
- Former champ Diamond Sharp adds to the self-proclaimed ‘best pitching staff in the league’ by acquiring Verlander late in the week, but he didn’t need him as his ‘young fresh arms’ put a 9-1-0 shellacking of Team Kelly.
- The defending champ gets back on track, coasting to a 7-3-0 victory over Sweet Chin Music. Perhaps SCM should be focusing more on baseball then having your mascot boozing it up in Danica Patrick’s pit. Always something shady at SCM operations…
- Reverse Cowgill sweeps all offensive categories, but Bust-her Posey sweeps all the pitching categories as these two heavyweights split 5-5-0. 14 HR’s for RC is good; 6 W’s for BHP also is good.
Tie: 14 Saves, Grand Theft Votto
THERE’S NO BAR AT THIS DAMN HOTEL GAME OF THE WEEK:
Diamond Sharp v. HOLY COW
Has to be, right? #1 in the standings vs. a team coming off a 9-1-0 win, winner of this will lead the division heading out of first round of division play.
