Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 20 (8-17 – 8-23)

In last week’s wrap-up, I mentioned how I wanted Henry Rowengartner from the film “Rookie of the Year” as my fantasy closer.

You become the first rookie pitcher in Red Sox history to throw a no hitter. “There’s no going back to Triple-A,” Red Sox manager Terry Francona said. Buchholz wasn’t even suppose to start today.
