¡Los Leones Pierden! ¡Los Leones Pierden!

Era un día triste en béisbol de la fantasía esta semana pues los leones de Yucatan perdieron a las robustezas comen a bebés. Los palos de las robustezas vinieron vivo esta semana (finalmente) con una explosión ofensiva con la cual ningún equipo habría podido continuar. Esto es seguramente una platija, pues la estación de las robustezas no ha sido todo ésa fantástica. Los leones están lastimando éste, pues caen a tercero cabalmente. No es como jugaron malo, aunque no jugaron grande tampoco. Las robustezas apenas jugadas eso bueno. Como robusteza mencionada, Joboo, palos no asustados de bolas de la curva más. Los leones harán una reaparición fuerte esta semana sin embargo, con la adición de Kenny Rogers y esperanzadamente encontrarán un colector que ponga para arriba cualquier stats en todos. ¡Van Los Leones!

HWC Baseball Week 11 Recap

I'm a little late again since I was in Florida this past weekend, and didn't really have time to work on the blogs. But Week 11 is over, and I'll be brief about the games. But first, let's take a look at the scoring. Pairs of teams go head to head for a week adding up stats and the best score in each stat gets a win. The other team gets a loss for that stat. There are 13 stats to combine; On offense there are Runs, Hits, Home Runs, RBI's, Stolen Bases and Strike Outs. On the defensive side It's all pitching with Wins, Losses Saves, K's ERA and WHIP. Scoring combines like This. Team A wins 4 stats, and team B wins 8, with the teams tying one. Team A's record for the week is 4-8-1, where team B is 8-4-1. Now to the games.

Cookeville Engineers - 6
Wookies Will Repeat - 7
I could have had this game so easily, if only the Engineers had decent pitching. Most of my pitchers had poor outings, and 4 pitchers had over a 6.0 ERA for the week. If it weren't for the Wookies having a late week pitching-suckage, I would have been demolished.
Game MVP: Justin Verlander - Gets his first no-no of his career in just over 40 starts, and a second win later that week.
Game Goat: Mike Napoli - 0/Everything this week

Robots Eat Babies - 6
JAX Juggernauts - 6 (Tie in Home Runs)
As evenly distributed of a battle as you can get. Both teams had 3 wins and 3 losses in pitching and hitting, with the lone tie in hitting. Poor Jax is getting injuritis something bad on his pitching staff. 4 starters are on the DL, and he hasn't replaced them. Safety do realize that when you place some one on the DL, it gives you an open roster slot until they get back....right?
Game MVP: Carlos Zambrano - It's a shame the Cubs suck so much. Zambrano was 1-1 in his 2 starts giving up just 2 runs in 17 innings and racking up 18 K's.
Game Goat: Curt Shilling - 1 game, 5 innings, 5 runs, and now he's on the DL.

Baseball Rulz! - 4
Anna Benson Is Yummy - 8 (Tie in Losses)
If there's a long standing battle between Wyatt and Sssteve, then Wyatt just took the latest battle by storm. He can hit like a mad man but he just can't score. Or at least on the diamond. In hte mean time, Sssteve keeps dropping like he's NOT hot. He's only got one winning week in the last 8.
Game MVP: Jake Peavy - 7 Inning shut-out with only 2 hits, and racked up 8 K's.
Game Goat: Orlando Hernandez - 0-2 giving up 10 runs in just 10 1/3 innings.

The PAWs - 8
Fmragtops Spewers - 5
Pitcher/Hitter all the way. Lawhawk rocked the batting statistics handily, and then took a couple of the pitching just to get some insurance.
Game MVP: Corey Hart - 9/27 with 3 Home runs, 8 RBI's, and 4 Runs to go with a couple stolen bases
Game Goat: Carl Crawford - When he gets on base he's fast....but with 10 K's he's not going anywhere.

bRight & Early - 12
webcats - 1
DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN! You got knocked the F@#$ OUT! bRight was 7 K's shy of a shut-out here. Ouch. I guess it makes up for 4 losing weeks in a row. Cats fall even further into the last place hole.
Game MVP: bRight - 62/201 with 11 home runs37 RBI's, 36 Runs, and 13 stolen just hitting!
Game Goat: Jeff Suppan - 0-1 giving up 13 runs in 11 innings, and after giving up 9 in just 4 2/3, how he didn't get the loss still amazes me.

RFTR - 8
PFB - 3 (Ties in Stolen Bases and Losses)
RFTR continues to win despite the fact that he never looks at his team. He'll rarely win in the win and K column, but with his batting being good, and only having 3 starters and 2 relievers, it's hard to beat his ERA and lack of losses.
Game MVP: Alex Rodriguez - This makes the 4th week he's been an MVP. 9/21 with 3 HR's, 10 RBI's, 9 Runs, and a stolen base.
Game Goat: Pitching - Both teams sucked at it with ERA's hovering around the 4.8 mark.

Leones de Yucatan - 9
Big Damn Heroes - 2 (Ties in Stolen Bases and Wins)
The Lions just keep pace every week with Tyler and although they can't close in, he makes for a sure 2nd place. After closing in when he played Tyler, he's now just laying and waiting in the weeds to pounce.
Game MVP: Adam Dunn - 12/24 with 4 Home Runs, 8 RBI's, and 6 Runs. Now if only he can fix those 7 K's.
Game Goat: Jason Bay - 4/23 with 9 K's and not much else.

Maximum Poo - 10
Joe's Keizer Killers - 3
That's how you come back from a loss. And actually ,with this, he stays even with Vex, and although he doesn't get over .300 for batting, he still takes the majority of batting, and all the pitching.
Game MVP: Justin Morneau - 7/19 with 3 home runs 8 RBI's, 8 Runs, and only 1 K.
Game Goat: Livan Hernandez - 4 innings, 7 earned, and only one K with a WHIP of 3.5

Well, that's this week's games, and here's a look at the match-ups for this week. Next week I'll have the ranks posted.

Post One..
This week the lions of Yucatan defeated maximum Poo by an account from eight to five. Maximum Poo took a Maxima excrement whereas they dominated them in all the offensive categories and could maintain as soon as ignited in categories of the pitching to maintain total the account near. Nevertheless, the lions gained some earth in the Poo and now they are only six games behind. Soon the Poo will be cleaned with a water spurt and the lions will take the first trophy from the place and will destroy all the competition!

post two...
The lions of Yucatan are the equipment of greater baseball of the fantasy always! If you one dares to do to them in front, later you will make a spot of the grass in the diamond of the dirt of the battle! We are also found out that we are 9 games behind, but soon - the first place will be ours and the lions will govern the universe of the baseball of the fantasy! And soccer football one also. But that is not per months of a pair. The last week the lions had a moderate triumph on the assassins of Keizer de Joe, but this week is in center of an adjustment of accounts tipped with the equipment of the number one - Poo. Poo maximum is in the hardship as the lions are looking for the sweeping, leading at the moment 9-2. Nevertheless, it is not desrazonable that the lions can clear shutout and take the superior point in the league. Van the Lions!

No tengo gusto de hacer esto, Hector.

HWC Baseball Week 10 Recap

We're 1 week away from the halfway point of the HWC Baseball, and the play-off races are already starting to be visible. Some teams have a chance to play in the post season, others don't have a prayer. But before we get into that, lets remind the fans how we tally the scores here. Pairs of teams go head to head for a week adding up stats and the best score in each stat gets a win. The other team gets a loss for that stat. There are 13 stats to combine; On offense there are Runs, Hits, Home Runs, RBI's, Stolen Bases and Strike Outs. On the defensive side It's all pitching with Wins, Losses Saves, K's ERA and WHIP. Scoring combines like This. Team A wins 4 stats, and team B wins 8, with the teams tying one. Team A's record for the week is 4-8-1, where team B is 8-4-1.

And now to the scores.

Cookeville Engineers - 8
PFB - 4 (Tie in Saves)
This game was steady offensive and defensive dominance. With the Engineers going 65 of 213 in hitting with 8 Stolen bases 31 RBI's, 7 wins, 50 K's, and an ERA of only 1.89 with a WHIP of just 0.95, it's hard to combat. However there is a sad statistic for the Engineers. They are no longer undefeated in offensive K's (lost 39-40), and have fallen to third in total. One thing that will hurt PFB in the future is the loss of Mark Tiexiera to a strained quad.
Game MVP: Chone Figgins - 13/30 with 5 RBI's, 7 Runs, and 7 stolen bases, with 5 coming in 2 games, and 10 in the last 10 games.
Game Goat: PFB's Offensive Coaching - Had 2 players on his bench with 10 or more hits last week.

Robots Eat Babies - 6
Anna Benson Is Yummy - 7
The Man can hit, but he can't score! Only 17 RBI's, and 2 home runs on 60 hits. That will ruin any week. He also pitched pretty well, but he could not avoid losing. Two loses came from a pitcher who lost 2 games, despite his week ERA of 2.77. The Man might have been unlucky this week, but Wyatt definitely was not lucky because of it. He earned this win.
Game MVP: David Wright - 8/23 with 4 home runs 6 RBI's and runs, a stolen base, and only 4 K's.
Game Goat: Ryan Howard - He might have hit 2 over the fence, but he struck out 10 of27 at bats, which is more than he got hits (8).

Baseball Rulz! - 1
Fmragtops Spewers - 10 (Ties in Wins and Saves)
Wow! FM put a hurt on Sssteve. That game dropped Sssteve 3 spots from 9th to 12th, and put FM up 3 to 8th from 11th. Both teams were very close on both sides, but FM definitely took advantage of the saying, "It doesn't matter if you win by 1 or 100, you still won." Sssteve played pretty well, but FM just played that minute bit better.
Game MVP: Gary Sheffield - 10/24 with 4 home runs, 11 RBI's, 6 runs, and only one strike out.
Game Goat: Mike Lowell - If one player can kill you, he's the one this week. 2/20 with only 2 RBI's and 2 K's. Any other help on offense was dreadfully needed.

The PAWs - 6
webcats - 5 (Ties in Home Runs and RBI's)
For the most part, the offensive battle was fought tooth and nail, but on pitching Lawhawk dominated on non-decisions. His pitchers had a pretty high ERA of 4.15, but still won the stat, and won Losses on the back of the starter's bullpen. On the other hand, the cats just lost. Only one win was all it took to take the wins column, but 5 losses killed the rest. And despite his 4 home runs, Prince Fielder lost the MVP award because of his 8 K's.
Game MVP: Troy Glaus - 10/22 with 2 home runs, 4 RBI's, and 5 runs with only 4 K's
Game Goat: webcat's pitching - Just one win, 5 losses and a 4.56 ERA hurts.

bRight & Early - 4
Wookies Will Repeat - 9
b&E just did not show up this week. He batted only .215, and of course when that happens, you usually lose almost all of the offensive stats. He also suffered in pitching with a 5.66 team ERA, setting up another uphill battle that could not be won. Wookies went 6-1-0 on offense and then and even 3-3 in pitching to take the cake this week. The battle is close for the middle slots in the championship race, and b&E fell 3 spots to be out of it right now in 7th.
Game MVP: - Alber Pujols - He's baaaaaaaaaaack. 8/22 with 4 home runs 9 RBI's, and 5 runs to signal he's still the man.
Game Goat: Tim Hudson - 2 games, 8 innings, and 10 earned for an ERA of 11.25 and a WHIP of 2.13.

RFTR - 11
Joe's Keizer Killers - 1 (Tie in Saves)
RFTR went buck wild this week. With only one player under .300, he batted .389, racking up an amazing 84 hits, 42 runs, 52 RBI's 10 Home Runs, and 6 stolen bases on offense. Now how he won pitching is beyond me considering that he only has 3 active starting pitchers. They managed 3 wins and 0 losses, but he also won K's with just 30 K's, and his bullpen gave him an ERA of 2.08, and a WHIP of 0.73. RFTR has a great offense (5 batters this week with 10+ hits) which has now vaulted him up to 3rd with this whooping, but a saying goes, "A dog that s$%^s fast won't s#$% long." Let's see how long this lucky train lasts.
Game MVP: Alex Rodriguez - 10/25 with 4 home runs, 16 RBI's, 7 Runs, and a stolen base with only 5 K's
Game Goat: Bronson Arroyo - 6 2/3 innings giving up 6 runs. He's also 0-5 in his last 7 starts.

JAX Juggernauts - 9
Big Damn Heroes - 3 (Tie in Runs)
BDH was in 7th after climbing up from 13th, but after this loss has dropped back to 9th, 5 games behind the 6th place, and and only 2.5 games ahead of 13th. JAX is now in 13th after winning 3 of the last 4 weeks. JAX had a great week, batting .337, and his pitchers went 5-0 with only a 1.06 team ERA and 0.76 WHIP. Only Takashi Saito had an ERA over 2.7. Three pitchers finished the week with a 0.00 ERA, one had a 2.25, and one with a 2.7. This was a great week for JAX, and maybe...just maybe things will turn around for them.
Game MVP: JAX's team - Just incredible.
Game Goat: Jason Bay - 1/23 with 7 K's and his only hit was a home run.

Leones de Yucatan - 8
Maximum Poo - 5
I'll give Tyler credit where credit is due. On Saturday, Tyler had gone from being down 11-0, to tied up at 6 a piece. Despite that, the Lions absolutely killed Tyler on offense. Vex scored a powerful .338 average, including 74 hits, 16 Home Runs, 37 RBI's, and 35 Runs with just 38 K's. Tyler only batted a .277 when his season average is a .304, but he did take the cake in pitching. He only got one win and 3 losses, but it was enough to beat out Vex's 0-4 pitching with just one save. This game was great for Vex, but in all honesty, it was fluke for Tyler. Look for Tyler to have a killing this week.
Game MVP: Alfonso Soriano - 13/30 with 4 Home Runs, 8 RBI's, 7 Runs, and just 5 K's.
Game Goat: Tyler D. - Dude! Casey Blake is in the middle of a 21 game hit streak...and he's on the bench! Bench Bill Hall, and put in Blake.

Well, that's this week's recap, and here's a view of the match ups for Week 11. I'll have a mid-season analysis of the league, including ranks, my thoughts on each team, and where I think they may end up in September.

¡Los grandes leones de Yucatan derrotan el Poo máximo humilde!

Esta semana los leones de Yucatan derrotaron Poo máximo por una cuenta de ocho a cinco. Poo máximo tomó una mierda máxima mientras que los dominaron en todas las categorías ofensivas y podían sostener apenas encendido en categorías del cabeceo para mantener la cuenta total cercana. Sin embargo, los leones ganaron alguna tierra en el Poo y ahora son solamente seis juegos detrás. ¡Pronto el Poo será limpiado con un chorro de agua y los leones tomarán el primer trofeo del lugar y destruirán toda la competición!

Thursday, June 7, 2007

¡Los leones de Yucatan son los más grandes de toda la hora!!

¡Los leones de Yucatan son el equipo de béisbol más grande de la fantasía siempre! ¡Si usted se atreve a hacerles frente, después usted hará una mancha de la hierba en el diamante de la suciedad de la batalla! ¡Estamos también enterados que somos 9 juegos detrás, pero pronto - el primer lugar será los nuestros y los leones gobernarán el universo del béisbol de la fantasía!! Y el balompié uno también. Pero eso no es por meses de un par.

La semana pasada los leones tenían un triunfo moderado sobre los asesinos de Keizer de Joe, pero esta semana está en el centro de un arreglo de cuentas ladeado con el equipo del número uno - Poo. máximo Poo está en el apuro como los leones están buscando el barrido, conduciendo actualmente 9-2. Sin embargo, no es desrazonable que los leones pueden quitar un shutout y tomar el punto superior en la liga. ¡Van Los Leones!

HWC Baseball Week 9 Recap

Wow, What a week!...For me at least. I was down 6-5 to RFTR after Wednesday, and came back to win big! I moved up to 6th again, so if I stay here, I'll have a chance at the cup. I'll get to the games in a second, but let's see how the points are scored. On offense there are Runs, Hits, Home Runs, RBI's, Stolen Bases and Strike Outs. On the defensive side It's all pitching with Wins, Losses Saves, K's ERA and WHIP. Scoring combines like This. Team A wins 4 stats, and team B wins 8, with the teams tying one. Team A's record for the week is 4-8-1, where team B is 8-4-1. and now for the best games in Baseball!

Cookeville Engineers - 8
RFTR - 5
I took this game on sheer upkeep. RFTR has yet to realize that he only has 1 active starting pitcher. With that, he is certain most weeks to win ERA and WHIP, and usually winning Saves and Losses, but as for Wins and K's, they're hopeless. Speaking ofK's, a neat side not on my Engineers, I am 9-0-0 no for offensive K's, and have the fewest at 244. I won K's by 13 btw. On offense I was 2 stolen bases away from a clean sweep. I went 6-1-0 on offense with a great game for the Engineers. 66/197 (.335 Team BA) 38 Runs, 37 RBI's, 8 Home Runs and 4 stolen bases with only 34 K's.
Game MVP: Chone Figgins - 9/18 with 5 runs, 2 RBI's and 3 Stolen Bases (that makes 8/9 in just 31 games)
Game Goat: Michael Barret - 1/10 with only one run. I dropped him for Mike Napoli, the promising catcher from the Dodgers.

Robots Eat Babies - 3
Fmragtops Spewers 9 (Tie in K's)
The Man slips even further down the pecking order. He's now all the way back in 14th, only 1/2 a game out of last place, and the prospect does not look good. Simply put, REB was dominated. FM was close to, or actually did double most of The Man's offense. 46-22 in Runs, 66-41 in Hits, 10-6 in Home Runs, and 42-21 in RBI's. Plus Pitching wasn't much better. This could be the dreaded "rebuild year" for the Robots.
Game MVP: Gary Sheffield - 10/29 with 4 home runs 9 RBI's, 11 Runs scored 2 Stolen bases, and only 3 K's.
Game Goat: Todd Jones - 2 appearances, the first was 3 hits and 2 runs in 1/3 inning, the other was 7 hits and 5 runs in one inning. A week ERA of 47.25, and a WHIP of 9.75.

Baseball Rulz! - 6
webcats -7
On offense this was a decent game, but on offense both teams did very well. Sssteve had a team ERA of 3.22...and lost. Usually an ERA of that low will get you a win most weeks. This was also a classic game of the tortoise vs. the hare. Sssteve had all the stars, but the cats were consistently good and because of that took the game.
Game MVP: Manny Ramirez - 10/22 with a home run, 2 RBI's, 4 runs, and only 3 K's.
Game Goat: Scott Podsednik - On the DL since mid-April, and he's still starting.

The PAWs - 6
Wookies Will Repeat - 6 (Tie in Batting Average)
Both teams had over 60 hits and Lawhawk hoarded 13 home runs. On pitching the teams weren't that bad, but they absolutely could not win. Wookies won it with a mere 2 wins, but had 6 losses. A close game that could have gone either way, but didn't.
Game MVP: Ramon Hernandez - 7/19 with 2 home runs, 10 RBI's and 5 Runs with only 1 K.
Game Goat: Bartolo Colon - 1 game, 6 1/3 innings, giving up 11 hits and 8 earned runs

PFB - 7
bRight & Early - 6
This game was very much a split decision. Both teams split offense and defense as evenly as possible. Nothing much else can be said about this one.
Game MVP: Vladimir Guerrero - 11/26 with 2 Home Runs, 8 RBI's, and 5 runs.
Game Goat: Felix Hernandez - 1 game, 6 innings, 7 earned runs, and gave up 3 home runs.

Anna Benson Is Yummy - 7
Big Damn Heroes - 6
BDH had a .311 team average, 70 hits, 11 home runs, no losses and 4 saves, and he STILL lost. BDH is very much a power hitter, but facing Wyatt's speedy runners and sharp pitching, the law-man takes home the W, even though it wasn't by much.
Game MVP: Chad Gaudin - 2 games and 2 wins in 11 2/3 innings with just 2 earned.
Game Goat: Mark Hendrickson - 4 1/3 innings and 5 earned given up for an ERA of 10.38 and a WHIP of 2.08

Jax Juggernauts - 4
Maximum Poo - 8 (Tie in Stolen Bases)
Well, this ends Safety Man's winning streak, but he is still in the #13 spot. However, this loss puts him 4 games back from 11th and 12th. This however gives Tyler 5 weeks in a row of not only winning, but only allowing his opponent 4 or less points Actually, PFB is the only team to have scored more than 4 points against Tyler. But this will be good, Tyler is playing Vex this week in the battle of #1 and #2!
Game MVP: Magglio Ordonez - (2nd time in 3 weeks) 12/30 with a home run, 5 RBI's, 7 Runs and only 3 K's.
Game Goat: Nick Johnson - On the DL since the beginning of the season with a broken leg. UPDATE YOUR ROSTER!!!

Leones de Yucatan - 8
Joe's Keizer Killers - 4 (Tie in Stolen Bases)
Joe played well, but Vex played better. After losing to the worst team in the league last week, Vex came back strong ths week. Aside from getting demolished, there's not much more to say about Joe's Killers, except that they are back in last with the cats, 27.5 games out of 1st. One thing for Jow, if it weren't for Miguel Cabrera's 11 K's, he would have only had 24 offensive K's. That's really good, and those 11 K's are what kept him off the MVP list.
Game MVP: Matt Holiday - 10/28 with 2 knocks, 5 RBI's, and 4 Runs with only 3 K's.
Game Goat: Jeff Kent - 1/22 this week and only 2/33 since May 26th, dropping his season average from .295 all the way down to .255. He needs a slump buster.

Well, that ends the recap of week 9, and let's see how the rankings got shaken up, as well as Week 10's matches. And remember, the game of the week, Tyler D. Vs. Vex in the Clash of the Titans! As of right now it's 11-0...VEX! Check next week to see if Tyler can come back to stay in the top spot.
