The rich keep rolling, as they say. The #1 team overall is takes the TOD.

Random ItalicizedVoice (RCL 5)

20/52 (.385)

11 Runs
4 Home Runs
10 RBI

12 IP
13 Strikeouts
1 Win
1 Save
0.75 ERA
1.33 WHIP

Joey Votto was 3 for 4 with a home run and 2 RBI to lead the Voice. Everybody's favorite Blue Jays, Brett Lawrie and Jose Bautista, also homered, as did Mike Morse. Hot Jason Bay also drove in 2 runs for the most Canadian team in the RCL. C.C. Sabathia allowed 1 run in 6 innings, but it was relievers who provided the key numbers. RIV had 6 pitchers each throw a scoreless inning, recording 8 strikeouts, plus a win (Sergio Santos) and a save (Joakim Soria).



LOFL! Hilarious....never noticed....but hilarious.

Better Lucky Than Good (Partially Torn RCL)


19/45 (.422)

9 Runs
5 Home Runs
14 RBI
1 Stolen Base

10 IP
15 Strikeouts
1 Win
1 Save
1.80 ERA
1.10 WHIP

I guess if one 117-pt team is TOD, then the other has to go out do it too. B.J. Upton led Better Lucky, going 4 for 4 with a home run and 4 RBI. Yadier Molina was 3/4 with 3 RBI, while Robinson Cano, Joey Votto, Peter Bourjos, and Shane Victorino all homered. Madison Bumgarner struck out 8 in 5 innings for the win, with John Axford adding a save.

Runner Up

Lazy Sunday (Go Big or Go Home) only had 3 IP Sunday, or probably would have a TOD to their credit.

3 Home Runs
13 RBI

9 IP
9 Strikeouts
1 Win
1 Save
2.00 ERA
1.22 WHIP

Brandon Phillips hit 2 home runs, drove in 3, and scored 3 to pace the Explosives. Josh Willingham added a homer and 4 RBI, while Alfonso Soriano also knocked in 3 runs. Gio Gonzalez struck out 6 and picked up the win. Leo Nunez recorded the save for the 2nd consecutive day.

Lots of great hitting numbers Monday, but not much to choose from on the pitching side. (of course, that's the night I choose to finish off my GS in a public league with 9 starts; only 3 wins/39 K with an ERA of 4.42 and WHIP of 1.40).

Drizzy Pirate (The Dread Pirate Rides Again)

9 Runs
4 Home Runs
10 RBI
2 Stolen Bases

23.2 IP
20 Strikeouts
1 Win
1 Save
1.52 ERA
1.31 WHIP

The Drizzy Pirate has not had much go their way this season, but they are still battling in one of the toughest leagues in the RCL, and are now rewarded with the TOD. (makes it all worth it, right? right??)
Dustin Pedroia broke out of a little slump with a 4 for 5 night, hitting 2 home runs, scoring 4 and driving in 5. Miguel Montero (HR/3RBI), Evan Longoria (HR/2 RBI), and Alex Rios (3/4) also starred, while Rafael Furcal and Mike Trout each stole a base.
Mike Leake pitched 8 solid innings for the win,and Mariano Rivera added his 600th save. Ryan Dempster struck out 8, but his 6 walks did hurt the Drizzy P WHIP.

I finally got some better than decent results from middle relief. I'm in a three-way race for the K's crown, but I've only got a few starts left, so I've been running out high-K rate middle relief to supplement the two closers I've kept. And it's been killing me. Bastardo, Rzy-the-dude-from-StL-with-no-vowles-in-his-name, Gonzalez, Gregerson, Chapman, etc... they've all polluted my ratios and decided not to K at their usual rate when I had them active.

But check this out from last night:

Robertson: 1 IP, 3 K, 0 ER
Jansen: 1.1 IP, 3 K, 0 ER
Storen: 1 IP, 3 K, 0 ER
Axford: 2 IP, 3 K, 0 ER
Casilla: 2 IP, 4 K, 0 ER

Total from relief: 5 pitchers, 7.1 IP, 16 K, 0 ER

The WHIP coulda been better, but I'm not really going up or down in that category, so whatevs...

That was great pitching performance all around, MS. You probably won't be surprised though to learn Rzepczynski struck out the side today in his inning of work.

Well, it surprises me as much as I've been surprised by Weaver's start so far today.

After he gave up 23 baserunners, and 13 ER in 11 innings against Texas and Minnesota, I benched hi when he went to Yankee-town. Of course, there he allowed 5 baserunners, 1 ER and struck out 11.

Today he's facing that dominating Oakland offense. Through 4 2/3 innings, 8 baserunners with 1 K.

Yay.
