Man’s League Recap – Week 1


Here’s the results of the first week of action in the Man’s League. Let me know what you think of this format.

  • Maple Syrup David and The 06010 Board Nick tied 5-5.
    TEAM BATTERS PITCHERS TOTAL
    NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE
    Maple Syrup David (5-5) 34 6 27 2 .2615 43 2 4 2.112 0.972 5-5-0
    The 06010 Board Nick (5-5) 26 8 33 4 .2435 62 4 2 3.423 1.211 5-5-0

    Nothing was remarkable about this matchup other than David had great ERA and WHIP for the week. Both offenses were average at best.

  • Swiss Superman Michel defeated Tom The Intern 8-1-1.
    TEAM   BATTERS   PITCHERS   TOTAL
    NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE
    Swiss Superman Michel (8-1-1) 34 6 32 2 .2251 72 7 4 3.553 1.118 8-1-1
    Tom The Intern (1-8-1) 26 6 22 5 .2182 29 2 0 6.915 1.463 1-8-1

    Surprise upset of the week as the defending champion was humbled.  Both offenses were mediocre but Michel won the matchup with solid pitching while Tom’s pitching imploded.

  • BBQ Sauce Joel and Greyhound KC tied 5-5.
    TEAM   BATTERS   PITCHERS   TOTAL
    NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE
    BBQ Sauce Joel (5-5) 34 7 32 5 .2015 56 4 3 2.888 1.186 5-5-0
    Greyhound KC (5-5) 36 9 44 7 .2746 53 3 0 3.578 1.211 5-5-0

    KC swept the hitting categories while Joel swept the pitching categories.  Another day and this matchup could’ve gone either was as R, HR, K, W and WHIP were really close.

  • Secret Squirrel defeated Canadian #1 Carl 7-3.
    TEAM   BATTERS   PITCHERS   TOTAL
    NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE
    Secret Squirrel (7-3) 26 5 24 6 .2439 67 5 4 2.757 1.098 7-3-0
    Canadian #1 Carl (3-7) 33 11 29 2 .2398 38 2 0 3.882 1.353 3-7-0

    Daniel’s return to fantasy baseball was a success. His dominant pitching propelled him to the victory. Carl will have better weeks as his team hit 11 HRs for the week.

  • Suckuptosteffie Tom defeated Fantasy Wizard Tyler 6-4
    TEAM   BATTERS   PITCHERS   TOTAL
    NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE
    Fantasy Wizard Tyler (4-6) 24 3 20 6 .2500 50 2 5 2.627 0.843 4-6-0
    Suckuptosteffie Tom (6-4) 37 6 18 7 .2007 35 1 9 0.684 0.570 6-4-0

    Tom’s strategy to only have closers worked as he had a remarkable ERA and WHIP go along with his 9 saves. Tom’s hitting was an enigma since he put up a good amount of runs and SBs but hit .200 for the week.

  • Canadian #2 Ryan defeated EMT Jack 9-1
    TEAM   BATTERS   PITCHERS   TOTAL
    NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE
    EMT Jack (1-9) 40 7 42 7 .2633 28 0 0 7.387 1.783 1-9-0
    Canadian #2 Ryan (9-1) 43 10 43 6 .2909 64 3 4 3.569 1.121 9-1-0

    Jack had a very good hitting week but Ryan was just a bit better. Jack’s pitching was horrendous and it may be little this all season. Ryan had the best week all around with great balance in all 10 categories

  • Pod Vader and Shiba Inu Sean tied 5-5
    TEAM   BATTERS   PITCHERS   TOTAL
    NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE
    Pod Vader (5-5) 45 16 50 4 .3099 34 2 4 5.496 1.885 5-5-0
    Shiba Inu Sean (5-5) 28 9 32 11 .1969 48 3 3 4.629 1.350 5-5-0

    Jay hit a remarkable amount of homeruns and could be a real threat if his offense keeps this up. His pitching will get better with Strasburg and Lester on this team. Sean did well to split the matchup despite hitting below the Mendoza line.

  • Swedish Canada Niklas defeated Combo Meals Ryan 5-4-1
    TEAM   BATTERS   PITCHERS   TOTAL
    NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE
    Combo Meals Ryan (4-5-1) 31 9 38 2 .2717 49 4 1 4.116 1.317 4-5-1
    Swedish Canada Niklas (5-4-1) 38 9 34 8 .2436 63 6 2 5.494 1.552 5-4-1

    Another matchup that could’ve gone either way. Niklas’ team could be one to watch as his counting stats were very good. Ryan is also in the conversation but could’ve used another start or two.
