We end this round of division play with several close matchups, but the two teams with the best record in the league had very different weeks. Sitting with a 0.635 winning percentage, W.M. Dee takes control of the Caray Division with the impressive 8-2-0 shellacking of TTMFS. Not even a near perfect game from Scherzer on Sunday could save TTMFS, who get swept in all the offensive categories. 19 HR’s for WMD? I guess the face-to-face meeting with Votto in Chicago paid off. Other highlights:
- Downward Spiral: The other top team in the league is glad this round of division games are over, as Barqs takes another one on the chin, falling 7-3-0 to Team CCI. Is Chris Sale human?.
- Pretty Hate Machine: Keeping a slim 4 game division lead is Bros Before Hosmer, barely escaping the clutches of HOLY COW, 6-4-0. Is Salvador Perez human?
- With Teeth: The great pitching staff of Rusty Trumbo is starting to click, and they take the 5-4-1 victory over I Trust Autodraft. Is Sonny Gray human?
