I hope everyone has recovered from their Labor Day festivities.  The unofficial end of summer means we’re into the nitty gritty of Razzball Commenter League action.  It’s looking like a two horse race for the RCL overall title right now. Maybe even more impressive than those two seasons is the fact that the Squat Cobblers have three teams in the top 12 overall right now.  One of the three, we’ll talk more about later, rocketed up the standings this past week. Having three teams in the top 50 is really something, but three in the top 12 is just incredible. We’ll have to wait and see if all three can hang on, but as hot as they’re running right now, I wouldn’t bet against it.  It will take a real herculean effort to catch the two teams up top though as they really seem to be running away with things. More on the top 10 and the rest of the week that was, week 22 below:

‘PERTY ‘PERTS

Each week we’ll peek in at our resident ‘perts to see who is laying claim to best “expert” RCLer in the land.  We’ll take notes, check the standings and generally stalk them.  The heading is also hyperlink, so feel free to follow along as we go.

Speaking of running away with things, Grey really took off this week in the ‘Perts League, putting some distance between himself and Cram It and me.  Crammy and I are still locked in a virtual tie for second as we each gained one point this week and are locked at 82 points apiece. Grey on the other hand, gained 4.5 points this week, the most of any team.  Grey put in some work on the pitching front, throwing 81.2 IP. That kind of distance with four weeks to go could be enough for our fantasy master lothario.  

Malamoney was the biggest gainer in the standings this week, moving up two places to sixth.  Meanwhile, Ralph, Son and B_Don each lost the most points this week (4) but it was Ralph that dropped the most in the standings, falling two places to seventh.

TOP 10

For those too lazy to check the MASTER STANDINGS, I present to you, the current top 10

RK TEAM LEAGUE RCL PTS LG PTS LG INDEX MASTER PTS
1 Fat Fuckin’ Babies RCL 2019 (#57) 119.6 118 103 115.8
2 Backdoor Splitters ECFBL 119 113 107 112.3
3 UpNorth RCL 2019 (#65) 112.6 108 106 108.1
4 Prague Defenestrators RCL 2019 (#15) 110.1 108 103 107.2
5 Squat Cobblers 2 RCL 2019 (#14) 107.5 109 100 105.4
6 kumamoto expungers RCL 2019 (#45) 107.3 104 105 102.3
7 Acuna Moncada RCL 2019 (#46) 106.4 103 103 105
8 Team mcafeeeee RCL 2019 (#17) 105.8 107 100 104.2
9 Squat Cobblers 1 RCL 2019 (#13) 105.2 107 99 105.3
10 BEZOBRAZIE 1 Cougs R Us 105.2 101.5 105 101.7

The top four remained in tact this week with FFB and Backdoor Splitters leading the way.  Just 0.6 RCL Points separate the two as the ECFBL League Competitive Index is keeping the Splitters in contention.  One more league point might be enough to tip the scales.

Squat Cobblers 2 moves up one spot to fifth as does kumamoto expungers, who move into sixth.

Acuna Moncada advances two places to seventh and Team mcafeeeee remains in eighth.

Squat Cobblers 1 jumps all the way up from 26th last week and into ninth this week.  More on them to come.

Rounding things out we have BEZOBRAZIE 1, who hasn’t been in the top ten since week ten, but come storming back this week.

WEEKLY LEADERS

The best of the best from the week that was.

R – 69 – Backdoor Splitters (ECFBL) & The Colonol’s (Julio) Gotay (Original Recipe)

HR –26 – Filthy Scooter (RCL 2019 (#32))

RBIs – 77 – Team MattTruss (RCL 2019 (#30))

SB – 13 – Team Jreas11 (RCL 2019 (#28))

AVG – .384 – Team Baghdoian (RCL 2019 (#42))

K – 108 – NY Sturgeon King (RCL 2019 (#12))

W – 10 – Acuna Moncada (RCL 2019 (#46))

SV –  11 – Yo(an)-Yo(enis) Ma(sahiro) (RCL 2019 (#16)) & Team Rmuzz55 (RCL 2019 (#5))

ERA (Min. 40 IP) – 1.11 – Team CrazyIvan (RCL 2019 (#38)) (in 40.2 IP)

WHIP (Min. 40 IP) – 0.658 – Mariner Moose, Blow out my Back Walls (RCL 2019 (#63)) (in 48.2 IP)

No new records this week, but Team Baghdoian did tie the batting average mark.  If the Splitters keep leading the RCLs in Runs, they’ll be catching FFB before long.

TEAM OF THE WEEK

Our weekly shout out to the team that killed it the previous week.

Team: Squat Cobblers 1

League: RCL 2019 (#13)

Stats:   AVG: .340, R: 60, HR: 22, RBI: 66, SB: 7

IP: 69.1, ERA: 3.12, WHIP: 1.01, K: 93, W: 5, SV: 9

Summary:  Now you can see why Squat Cobblers 1 shot up the overall standings this week.  Weeks like this will do that for you. How do you like that K%? 93 in 69.1 IP, holy smokes!  It was Yadier Molina of all people along with Kevin Newman, Xander Bogaerts and Juan Soto leading the offense for the Cobblers.  On the pitching side, the Cobblers can thank K/9 machine, Dinelson Lamet for boosting those numbers with 10Ks in 5 innings. The Cobblers will look to keep riding the hot hands up the standings with all three of their teams in the final four weeks of the season.  Good luck!

    So…I finally looked at the Master Standings, since I started to pull in front in our league and…wow, our league is terrible. I’m in 55th overall and 1st in our league… Ha, woof

      Yea, the bottom of our league is pretty weak…

        Yeah, gonna need to turn over some dead weight

      I remember a guy complaining a year or two or three ago, that whoever won the ‘Perts league was guaranteed to win the Overall. Well take that, guy!

      Not that I have a vote, but I’m all for getting more active ‘Perts in there. High League Index or not, it should be one of the most competitive RCL leagues.

        Grey says:

        Yeah, agreed… I say to writers when I’m inviting them, I don’t care if you don’t want to be in it, just tell me if you’re A) Gonna compete B) Let me win

        • Cram It says:

          It all makes sense now! Wait, I don’t have that excuse :-/

          So how does Tehol get in every year? I mean I know he always makes part B happen.

      The bottom 3 in our league are pathetic but you still have to compete against 8 other very active and knowledgable managers for pick-ups and streaming. I’d wager almost every league has 3+ deadbeats at this point.

      • Grey

        Grey says:
        (link)

        Oh, I’m only keeping the bottom 3 — you thought I wanted harder competition?! Hahahahaha

  2. Squat Cobblers says:
    (link)

    Thanks MattTruss! Not much to play for in the ECFBL so, the Cobblers will try to put 3 in the top ten.

    One of these days you’ll have to mentor me on the DFS stuff. I’m a little hesitant at this point, but I may dip my toe someday…although I probably say the same thing every year.

    • MattTruss

      That would be very impressive! And sure thing man, any time.

        Oh and thanks for the Cobblers’ mention!! We appreciate it!

    Awful week for my team that was in 5th overall. Dropped 5 points in batting average this late in year which is hard to do and only hit 4 HR. Was right at the HR lead for overall standings, now 15 behind.

    Woof
