Newsletter for games through 5/28/2017

METS LAMENTS: Terry Collins just became the longest-tenured manager in Met history with 1,020 games..I hate to brag, but I’ve got over 4,000 ASFBL games as the Met manager…and if you’ll indulge me one real-life Met moment, last night Smoker got the win in an emotional 12-inning game where he pitched 3 scoreless innings…it was his 3rd multiple-inning, scoreless appearance of the year…and lowered his ERA to 6.86…

COMMENTARY: Steve Skrovan got the Indians into first with a 5-2 week, bumping Rob Perkins and the Chisox…Rob reports that last week was the first time since 1994 he’d been in first place…didn’t double-check, but I’ll take his word for it…Washington turned a 5-1 week into first place…and now every team in the NL East is in positive WOR territory…Braves and Mets have identical fantasy and reality team records…Miami was 4-1…Cubs inched closer in the NL central, but Zewiske’s Brew Crew still hold first place…Arizona and Colorado matched each others’ 5-2 weeks in the NL West…Dodgers were 4-2….Baltimore picked up 1.5 games over the Yankees in the AL East…Oakland had the only winning record in the AL West, and is 2 back of Houston…Philadelphia has moved into first place in the WOR standings…Lance McCullers of Houston had 4 strikeouts vs. the Orioles on 5/26…4 were against Trey Mancini…so in the 16-inning game Seattle played against Washington, Washington starter Gio Gonzalez allowed 1 run on 1 hit through 7….the bullpen allowed 11 hits over the next 9 innings but didn’t allow anyone to score…Gonzalez also walked 4 and the 3 relievers walked nobody…Murphy won the game in the 16th with a homer…
