I guess I broke my losing streaking. But I still have a winless streak. Bove completed a nice comeback over the last three days and it resulted in a 5-5-1 draw in this week seven matchup.

Most of the matchups this week were very close and competitive. Eric’s team continues to heat up a bit. Vaghi’s hot start is officially on ice. Michael wants to get back into the early playoff bracket and Michaud ends his skid.

Let’s get into.

WEEK SEVEN: May 15 – May 21

Brutal loss for me. I had the lead in hits until Friday hit, and the Bove’s team finally being batting well and they eked out a category win by two hits. I also thought I had hope on Sunday night because I had three players going and needed to gain three hits on him. Those trio of players combined for one hit. No players in double-figures hits for Bove, but Adam Frazier of Baltimore did lead his team with nine hits. Cedric Mullins let the way for Where did you Verdugo? with 10 hits.

At least I took care of business in the one category I should have. Bove ranked last going into the the week in runs scored, and that is going to hold fast. Adam Frazier had six runs scored, two more than Toronto’s Whit Merrifield. It was more of a steady stream for my team, but we can not ignore Paul Goldschmidt who had seven runs scored. I should note he did 0-5 on Sunday so I blame him for some of the hits loss.

Ehhh, neither Bove or I were to great in this category. I lost and I only had six home runs because my team doesn’t hit dingers. Mullins had a pair for me, as well as Atlanta Orlando Arcia. Bove takes the category with eight homers, with Texax’s Ezequiel Duran and Frazier hitting two dingers. Timothy, I think you can see where your MVP vote is going this week.

Bove had three straight days of his team getting five RBI and that was enough to win the category over me. Houston’s Kyle Tucker had seven RBIs during the week. He averaged an RBI per hit. Mullis matched Tucker in terms of driving runs home, but then there was a difference in depth. Frazier, Arizona’s Christian Walker, and Duran each had four RBI.

Ba-da Bing. Ba-da Boom. I will take an easy category win. Taylor Walls, and Goldschmidt each had two stolen bases. Juan Soto, Jarren Duran, and Mullins each had one steal for me. For Bove, Merrifield, Tuvker and Duran all had one. It was a 7-3 category win for Stanko; I will take it.

Is there a category for walks? I would like there to be a category for walks. I think I would dominate the category for walks. At least my 37 walks as a team helped my OBP to a .3541 clip, good enough to take down Bove’s .3030 as a team. Bove had 13 of his walks coming from Adley Rutschman and Carlos Correa. I had 11 walks from Goldschmidt. He had .438 OBP, and it could have been more if he didn’t have just three hits.

Not a ton of drama in the strikeouts category. Nathan Eovaldi only had five strikeouts, same with Max Scherzer. Atlanta’s Spencer Strider had seven strikeouts in his five innings shawty work. Merrill Kelly of Arizona had 13 strikeouts in 12 innings pitched. He really did well this week for Bove. Kevin Gausman is a super star in this category again with 14 strikeouts over 15 innings. Charlie Morton threw 6.2 innings and strikeout 10. Corbin Burnes and Jordan Montgomery (who I just dropped, sorry dude) each had seven strikeouts.

This is the category that Bove and I tied. I had wins from Morton, Freddy Peralta and Jon Gray. I would like to pat myself on the back for the Gray pickup. For a team that is not very good, I will take these small victories. Kelly was massive from Bove getting wins in both of his starts. Kelly has won four of his last five starts, including two this week against Pittsburgh and and Oakland.

Only save for Bove came from Alex Lange against the Washington Nationals. He only pitched once this week, which is a little strange. I had saves from only one person as well; Camilo Doval had four saves and pitched five this week.

A damn good ERA week for Bove, who has the worst ERA for the season. I would say that is bad luck for me, but them the brakes in fantasy sports. Bove’s team averaged a 4.263 by the end of the week, but over the course of seven days against me, he had a 2.976. Maybe Domingo German getting suspended was a good thing? I got super duper fucked by Peralta having a 7.15 ERA over 11.1 innings. And Montgomery had to go as his continued struggles resulted in a 5.06 ERA this week.

Sub-one WHIPs will do the job. Bove this week with a 0.992 WHIP, he literally matched his WHIP from last week. Same exact thing. It is his second best effort this season, only bested by his 0.984 in a win over Michaud in week four. Meanwhile, I only had one pitcher with a sub-one WHIP, and that came from Baltimore reliever Yennier Cano (who allowed his first earned run this week).

Man, Cedric Mullins is the man. Top ranked outfielder in the sport right now for fantasy. He had 10 hits, four runs, two home runs, seven RBI and a stolen base. Believe he also hit for the cycle this week.

I think my LVP is going to bit of a hindsight 20/20 look. I think I am going to go with Patrick Wisdom. made a trade from his earlier this year but since then he has fallen in his 3B rankings. This week he was 2 for 15 with one walk and had gone one for 11 with eight strikeouts during that time.

It is between Adam Frazier and Merrill Kelly for Bove’s MVP. Frazier had the hits, and Kelly had the pitching. I think I am going to lean Frazier because he had five hits over the last two days, and that category was one by two.

Kinda tough to pick a Bove LVP because the categories he lost were not really close. Maybe I will go with The New York Mets as his LVP because one more win would have gotten him that category, and Scherzer pitched six shutout innings but didn’t get the win.

MVP TRACKER: Mullins (3), Goldschmidt (2), Verdugo (1), Walls (1)
LVP TRACKER: Albies (1), Casas (1), Gausman (1), Soto (1), Sale (1), St. Louis Cardinals (1), Wisdom (1)


  • I guess I ended my losing streak by tying Bove? But I am still not winning. Grasping at straws here. Bove had a great comeback after being down 8-3 at some point on Thursday.
  • Kenney asked me for pitching advice on Sunday. I don’t think I gave him the best advice, but he still got the job done. A 7-4 win over Vaghi, handing the once leader in the clubhouse his second straight loss. I mean, also fuck you two for having two ridiculously high ERAs and going against one another.
  • Michaud ended his losing streak last week with a tie, and now he has a win. Huntley suffers a setback and is sitting in the basement with me. 0.010 was the difference in ERA between the two of you guys, would have shifted the vibes a but for Hunt. Also only one run difference to on the offensive side! Very close matchup!
  • Jack list wins his straight straight by the same score, 7-3-1. He ends DiMaio’s three game winning streak.
  • Eric, despite his team not pitching up to where his team has been performing, comes away with an 8-3 win over Drakeley.


  • Michael Kenney’s run on stolen bases has come to an end! He has been caught! Vaghi hands him his first loss of the season.
  • Eric got his first win in the on base percentage category! Crazy for a team that is ranked third in the league is 1-6 in OBP. I guess everyone has a weak spot.
  • Not much more thought on this because I noticed a boo-boo in my stats and I had to correct it and it had to take a lot of time.


  • I think i audibly gulped when I say this matchup. Top tier team vs. bottom tier team. Maybe some magic will happen?
    • According to the season stats, Eric is going to beat me, 8-3.
  • Vaghi is need of a win, and Huntley thought he was on the come up, but a loss last week stalled that.
    • According to the season stats, Vaghi is doing to beat Huntley, 10-1.
  • Just looked at this plainly, I think this is going to be a good matchup between Kenney and List.
    • According to the season stats, Jack is going to win this matchup, 7-4.
  • Michaud, the power hitting team, against Drakeley, who is one of the worst hitting teams in the league. I think the hitting categories could be very lopsided depending on the categories.
    • According to the season stats, Michaud is going to beat Drakeley, 9-2.
  • DiMaio looking to rebound from his worst loss since week three against Drakeley while Bove looks to get over his second 5-5-1 draw of the season.
    • According to the season stats, DiMaio is going to beat Bove, 8-3.


  • Eric moves up the third place and shifts DiMaio down a spot. Both still in the playoff picture as of now.
  • List and Vaghi remain one-two in the league.
  • Michael Kenney remains in fifth place, one out of the playoffs.
  • Bove moves up to sixth with the tie with me, and Drakeley goes down a peg.
  • Michaud climbs two spots to eighth, no longer in last place.
  • I am now currently now tied for last place with Huntley. I am only ahead of him because of tiebreaker.
  • Only change is that not Jack List would go against DiMaio in the first round of the playoffs.
  • Eric, by moving up to third, now plays Vaghi in the first round.

  • DiMaio: ERA, Hits, Run, WHIP (4)
  • Eric: Moves, Wins (2)
  • Michaud: RBI, Home Runs (2)
  • Vaghi: OBP, Strikeouts (2)
  • Huntley: Saves (1)
  • Kenney: Stolen Bases (1)
