In the SoB baseball league, we are down to just four teams. I am fortunate enough to have made it this far, but I am now facing the #1 seed, so we will see how that goes down.
I hope most of you who find this are still on your quest for glory. But hey, let’s not turn our noses at the consolation brackets out there, so this is for all you almost winners out there too.
The Florida stud is shut down for the season after experiencing back pains for the past few weeks. He ends the year 11-6 with a 2.30 ERA and 186 K.
Lidge has elbow soreness that has held him out of action since September 6th. He has been cleared to play, but Philly is being cautious.
Reyes’ never ending carousel of injuries had landed on an oblique strain. He returned to action on Friday after being out of action since August 26th. Keep an eye on this, since a leg injury will hurt the stock of a speedster.
Pena is absolutely on fire this month, hitting over .400. As for last week, he led all catchers with 10 hits, going 10/23 with a home runs and 9 RBI.
I mentioned him here last week, so I will save some words and just post his numbers from this month: .432/3 HR/10 RBI
He won’t boost your power, but Young is cranking out the hits and showing off the wheels as he compiled a 12/26 week with 4 R, 4 RBI, and 3 SB.
Cranking out an incredible 14 hits, Bonifacio also scored an impressive 9 runs to go with his 3 RBI and 3 SB. He’s starting every game now and he also qualifies at SS.
Despite fighting a nagging shoulder injury and being forced to move to 2B, Scutaro still pounded out 3 HR and 4 RBI on 6/17 hitting.
The rookie was by far the best outfielder last week, going 12/29 with 6 R and blasting an unheard of 5 HR and driving in 8 RBI. The kid is slugging over .800 this month.
Talk about unlucky, Kennedy didn’t allow a run in his two starts, but couldn’t come away with a victory. However, we can take the 14.0 IP, 0.00 ERA, and 12 K.
