How Wing Conspiracy week 20 results

Another fun fantasy baseball week bites the dust.
Here's how the final scores came out...

Wookies Will Repeat - 6
Maximum Poo - 6

I thought I had Poo down for the count, with a 10 - 3 lead on Friday. But Poo came storming back and tied things up. And it it wasn't like either one of our teams played particularly crappy. Any other week we'd both have probably had runaway victories. Just not this week.
MVP - Albert Pujols. Big Al hit .476, 10 hits, & 3 HRs
Goat - Ray Druham. Ray hit a spectacular .100, with only 1 hit. The pisser here is that if I'd left him in the lineup on Sunday, I'd have won since he went 1 - 4 with a HR. HRs was the one category we tied in...

Robots Eat Babies - 2
RFTR - 11

Unfortunately, Robots was thoroughly outmatched. RFTR had a truly dominating performance and Robots never had a chance. Robots only took the offensive and pitching K categories and that was it.
MVP - Bobby Abreu. Bobby hit .375 with 3 HRs, 6 RBIs, and 2 SBs. Who told the Yankees it was OK to win again? I liked them better when they were in the cellar.
Goat - Ryan Howard. A rough week for the Rhino. Only 3 hits for a .125 average and 12 K's.

Baseball rulz! - 9
Cookeville Engineers - 3

This match up was a little closer than the score indicates. The pitching stats were a dead heat here, but Cookeville lost the offensive categories 5 to 1. Cookeville took SBs by 9 but that's were the fun stopped.
MVP - Lance Berkman. Lance finally put together a good week hitting .400 with 3 HRs and 9 runs scored.
Goat - Kevin Youklis. The man with the funny goatee only hit .111 and racked up 12 K's.

The PAWs - 11
bRight & Early - 2

PAW came out to play this week, despite the sub .500 record and took out bRight, a top ranked team. Don't let the score fool you; it was a tight game, but PAWs found a way to come out on top... barely. He took hits by 1, RBIs by 2, runs by 2, and HRs by 2.
MVP - Mark Reynolds. Yeah... I don't know who he is either, but he hit .375 for the week with 2 HRs and 4 RBIs.
Goat - Brad Wilkerson. he came through with just 1 hit and 8 Ks for a total average of .083. Ouch.

PFB - 7
Big Damn Heroes - 6

Another bottom feeder team coming up big against a contender team. Heroes put up a fight but just couldn't quite overcome PFBs well rounded attack. PFB had 3 guys with double digit hits, 4 with 5 or more RBIs (every started had at least 1 RBI), and at least one run scored by every starter too.
MVP - Brandon Phillips, Vlad Guerrero, and Tori Hunter combined for 3 HRs, 30 hits, 16 RBIs, and 14 runs scored.
Goat - Joe Borowski. Looks like he got pounded. 13.50 ERA with a loss.

Webcats - 7
Leones de Yucatan - 5

This must have been the week of the upset! Webcats is ranked #15 in a 16 team league and Leones was #2. Webcats had a solid week, and Leones had a bit of a down week. The cats just barely took 6 of the 7 offensive categories, but that was enought to get them the win.
MVP - Raul Ibanez. We have Raul Ibanez siting! Trying to resurrect an absolutely horrendous season, Raul hit .429, with 2 HRs, and 5 RBIs.
Goat - Scot Shields. Sure he had a 20.25 ERA and a WHIP at 4.50... Could be worse...

Fmragtops Spewers - 6
JAX Juggernauts - 5

FM wins! FM wins! This was your basic mediocre offense vs. mediocre pitching, and we all know mediocre offense will win that matchup at most 50% of the time.
MVP - Geoff Jenkins. He had a modest .261 average, 6 hits 3 of which were HR, and 6 RBIs. Medicrity at its finest.
Goat - Omar Vizquel. We're closing in on Omar's retirement I think. .056 average, with only 1 hit all week.

Anna Benson Is Yummy - 10
Joe's Keizer Killers - 1

As usual, Anna's opponents roll over and bask in her yumminess, and while Joe may be a Keizer Killer, he was no match for her feminine sex appeal. Stats were overall pretty close, so Joe put up a fight at least.
MVP - David Wright. The latest fathead spokeman had 11 hits, posting a .423 average.
Goat - Jon Garland had a rough week. 2 losses with a 9.72 ERA.

And this week's matchups certainly favor the top ranked teams. Teams 1-4 all play the bottom teams this week. I of course being ranked 5th have to play the #7 team. I guess I'll have to dredge the free agent pool for some pitching....
