Newsletter for games through 6-2-2019

COMMENTS

Ben Brockreide leads the league in trades, which by itself signals a highly involved owners, but he’s also +1.5 WOR, which means that he’s been making good trades…Greg Achten’s Anaheim team got hot was the real team got hot and he went 6-1 this week…the Yankees went 6-1 and made up ground in the AL East…and Hugh Brown’s Colorado team went 6-1…only to lose ground to the Dodgers, who went 7-0…Steve Horak’s Chisox turned in the only winning week in the AL central at 5-2, picking up 2.5 games on Minnesota in the process…Danny Wildes’ Braves had the only winning week in the Al East, and extended their division lead to double-digits…no second-place team in any NL division is closer than 7.5, but there are 7 teams within 2.5 games of the last wildcard spot…the top two home-running hitters in the NL both have 25 homers each…and both are Dodgers…Jay Bruce has 23, and has done much to account for the Oriole +6 WOR figure…of the top 8 walk leaders, Bryce Harper is the only one with under 200 AB…he also has the most walks…Will Harris of the Padres has stranded all 14 inherited runners…Brian Shaw of the Rockies leads all ASFBL pitchers in appearances, with 30…Max Scherzer struck out 25 guys in only 16 innings last week…Curt Casali of the Reds hit .591 in 22 AB last week…the Reds went 5-1…the Braves beat the Tigers 15-4 on 6/2, which is a pretty wide margin, but the most amazing thing was that Austin Riley had 8 RBI…
