COMMENTARY

The fun fact of this week in MLB is those 3 Pirate guys you’ve never heard of who all had 3-homer games on consecutive days…that didn’t happen in the ASFBL this week, but Patrick Wisdom of the Cubs and a 3-homer, 9 RBI game on the 29th and Oscar Mercado of the Guardians and 3 homers and 7 RBI on July 3rd…fireworks one day early…the Braves moved into within a game behind the Mets thanks to a 5-1 week…Miami was also 5-1…I’m really counting on Scherzer and deGrom to help me out…the Brewers were even more assertive in the NL Central and went 6-0 to pull to within a game of the Cardinals, no slouches at 4-2…both teams are in firmly positive WOR territory….the Mets are not…Rick Wynne just keeps doing it with the Dodgers and has firm control of the NL West…and the best record in the league by 7 games…the only drawback he’s facing is that he’s getting slightly less of of Tony Gonsolin than Dave Roberts is, since the ASFBL Gonsolin has 2 losses…both he and the real guy have 10 wins…the Yankees and Jays have to be making Boston nervous, both with 5 wins this week…Bosox still have a semi-comfortable 5.5 game lead…kudos to Baltimore for their 4-2 week…the AL Central had a Cleveland-Minnesota showdown this week, and while they slugged it out en route to a 3-2 series win for the Twins the Chisox went 6-0 to make the big move in the division…every team in that division is within 1.5 games of the actual club performance…Houston gained ground in the AL West thanks to a 4-2 week and the fantasy Angels playing like the actual Angels…except they didn’t strike out 20 times in any game this week…Angels still hold the top wildcard spot in the AL…Texas is only 1 game back of them….every AL division leader has at least a 5-game lead but the top 4 wildcard spots are separated only by 1.5 games…Six AL teams are closer to the wildcard spot than first place…only three in the NL….thanks to all of you who took time out of your Independence Day celebration to get your lineups in….12 more trades this week!
