Fantasy Baseball Wrap-Up: Week 5 (5-4 – 5-10)

As I have documented before, I am in three baseball leagues. In two, I am in great position in the top 5. In one, I am in dead last thanks to two factors: Injuries and Lance Berkman hitting under .200. The news did not get any better last week when Cubs’ 3B Aramis Ramirez dislocated […]
