Newsletter for games through 9-27-17

COMMENTARY: Since he’s enabled my laziness, I now more or less wait for Andy Somers to distribute an update about the state of the pennant races…but I did notice these things: Cubs picked up 2 and 1/2 games this week and moved in front of Milwaukee…Dodgers flexed their muscles and went 6-1, and are now a full game ahead of Milwaukee for the last wildcard spot…Diamondbacks and Rockies each went 5-1, demonstrating their ongoing prowess, and the Rockies are second in their division but only half a game back of the Nationals for second best team in the National League…top of the AL East went bananas, but none moreso than the Yankees who went 6-0 and are dead tied with the Tigers for the AL wildcard spot(s)…Boston and Seattle lurk dangerously close…the WOR leaders are largely composed of teams that have collapsed in real life, but it’s awesome to see how Cincy, Philly, and the Chisox are all top-5 WOR teams because the owners stuck with it and have clubs that are much better than the actual rosters…Indians have the blessing and curse of being the hottest real team; you’re gonna win a lot, but it’s almost impossible to make WOR headway…Tribe matched the Tiger 5 wins this week but with one less loss, picking up a half game, and going into the lase week with a 5 game advantage in the central…Houston has clinched in the west, but Seattle is contending and the Oakland team is in positive WOR territory…Corey Kluber — now of the ASFBL Colorado club — tops the league with 20 wins…three of the top six ASFBL win leaders are in the AL East…Ervin Santana leads the ASFBL with an obscene 287 innings (206 in real-life)…MLB leader has 214…Padres have milked 217 innings out of Jhoulys Chacin, which is an accomplishment unto itself…Top 3 MLB ERA leaders are Kershaw, Kluber, and Scherzer…Top 3 ASFBL ERA leaders are Kershaw, Kluber, and Scherzer…Top 6 ASFBL OPS leaders are all still with their original teams…
