It’s hard for me to be upset about last week at this point since I am doing the Weekly Results so late into the beginning of the next match-up. I will pretend to be sad when I announce that Week 18 ended in a loss for the Miami Carlins. The worst thing of all was that for a very brief time late in the day the Carlins made a triumphant comeback. I actually made a point to watch a game on MLB.com between the Orioles and Giants where Cecil Cantrell pitcher Matt Cain was going. The Orioles beat Matt Cain, but with it came a bunch of points from other Cecil Cantrell players Matt Wieters, Manny Machado, and the guy who put the icing on the cake, Adam Jones. Week 18 ended in a loss for the Miami Carlins 279-269. A great effort that was not good enough.
Player of the Week goes to Freddie Freeman with 25 points, the only consistent offensive player of the week. Disappointment of the week goes to Jordan Zimmermann whose struggles have continued. He earned only 6 points. Enemy of the Week goes to Adam Jones with 34 points, most importantly because of that last home run to seal the victory for Cecil Cantrell.
Let’s do some quick scores from around the league:
Houston Asterisks proved they aren’t the worst team in the league with a 299-222 win over last place Si Hurricanes
Team Gold handed another loss to Team Boyle, 302-288
Stone Cold knocked The Fuzzy Taints out of a playoff spot with a 271-266 victory
Drunkin’ Drafters gave Jimmy Dean Vienna Sausages their third loss of the season, 301-279
Now for Atlanta Slaves news:
It was a terrible week for the Slaves until Sunday where they came back and picked up a few wins. The Slaves lost their first place position, but are only 1.5 games behind.
Week 19 sees the Miami Carlins facing off against the last place Si Hurricanes. We have already beaten them twice and already lead them 57-negative 2. Only four weeks remain in the regular season and every single win matters. The Carlins are at the front of the pack of team mushed together, but a losing streak this late in the season could make all of the time spent for nothing, which would really suck.
