This year Jay Bruce was an All-Star. Technically he was Dexter Fowler’s replacement, but he was in uniform in Miami. Wait a minute! Bruce was not an All-Star this year, I’m thinking of last year. While he might not have been an All-Star this season he does have 30 home runs and he has a .263 batting average. He hasn’t batted over .262 since 2010 when he finished with a .281 average. He is a career .249 hitter that is currently on pace for a career highs in home runs, runs scored and RBIs.

As of Saturday morning Bruce was the leading points getter for the week. With 38 points he is just ahead of Manny Machado (36), Josh Donaldson (33), Edwin Encarnacion (33) and Anthony Rizzo (33). That’s a solid group of players to be lumped in with.

Here’s a quick recap of week two…

Denhusk led the group with 84 points by picking Alex Bregman, Cody Bellinger and Brian Dozier. Eddie Rosario ended up winning the week with 47 points. The most picked batter was Daniel Murphy who scored just ten points.

Ok, back to week three. Thor da man is currently in the lead with 55 points. His batters are Freddie Freeman, Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge. Speaking of Freddie Freeman, twelve of the fifteen contestants in this contest picked him. At the moment he has 13 points. Too bad none of you picked Jay Bruce.

Here are the current standings as of Saturday morning.

If you’re name’s not in the above scoreboard, that means you’re not in the playoffs. Just a reminder for those that are, make sure you don’t pick a player you’ve already picked the playoffs. And unless you’re name is LenFuego, don’t pick an Unpickable. And if you’re name is LenFuego, don’t pick more than one Unpickable each week.

The plan is for these posts to go live on Sundays.

The Unpickables – Do not pick these players unless you are LenFuego!!!

Mike Trout
Mookie Betts
Jose Altuve
Nolan Arenado
Paul Goldschmidt
Anthony Rizzo
Bryce Harper
Charlie Blackmon
Kris Bryant
Josh Donaldson
Manny Machado
Joey Votto
Miguel Cabrera

The contest closes on Monday at 1pm EST!!!

If you are not in the playoffs please refrain from picking players in the comments section. This will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
