Newsletter for games through 6-19-2016

REMINDER: If you make changes to your starting pitchers on the roster page, you also need to change the rotation assignments on the rotation change page.  You can find it on the main dashboard (the place you get sent to immediately after login), and it usually just involves clicking the “have computer automatically set rotation” button.

PLAYER ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE WEEK:  Adam Duvall of the Reds hit for the cycle on 6/13/2016

OWNER ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE WEEK: Cleveland native and super-fan Steve Skrovan entered a lineup only one day after the Cavaliers delivered the first championship to the Rock and Roll Capital of the World in a half-century…I am awarding him rights to all of LeBron James’ baseball stats if he goes all Michael Jordan…

COMMENTS: Go big Red…Cincinnati posted a 6-1 record, best in their division, and pulled themselves into positive WOR territory…The Giants had the only perfect 6-0 in the AL, matching the actual team’s torrid pace, and tightened their grip on first place…you gotta pull for Steve to make his inagural playoff appearance, and 80 games in he sure seems on track…the Yankees posted a perfect 6-0, only one in the AL, and pulled even with WOR…sweep victims were the Twins and Rockies, and the 6 wins included 2 shutouts…Detroit picked up a game and a half on Cleveland, and is only one back in the tightest ASFBL divisional race…the NL central is tough as usual; Rick Wynne is dead even WOR, but it’s going to be tough to be the Cubs and their 70% win clip…and the Cardinals are at +7 WOR; second in the NL central, second in the ASFBL WOR standings…Josh Donaldson hit 5 HR last week, tops in the ASFBL…Joe Panik may have had the perfect week for a leadoff hitter; .409, 4 stolen bases, no strikeouts….of course, he was batting 7th…not bad out of your #7 hitter…I would not suggest that a holy man like Rick Wynne is turning to the occult to reverse Cub fortunes, but Rizzo’s computer generated ID number is 28-666…it is the only place anywhere in the database that “666” appears…the Brewers have 68 real stolen bases, miles ahead of the Houston’s second-place mark at 55…they have 76 fantasy stolen bases, also tops in the league…Baltimore has 9, and the Mets are dead last with 7….in fact, Milwaukee has more than the Mets, Orioles, Mariners, and Cardinals combined…Arizona has the most hit-saving plays at 132…that’s about a hit and a half they save their pitchers every game…Texas took 2 out of 3 from the Cardinals while being outscored 13-8…it’s not how many you get, it’s when you get ’em…
