Dethroning Allan, Week Ten

I lost again.

Now that we’ve moved on from that unpleasantness, we can get to the scores of games that actually you know, matter. Team sportsmanMike continued his unstoppable ways, the RedRays got a nice win over WillisBeTheYear, and team Stogies crawled his way back to¬† .500 with a big win over the suddenly ice cold Love Boat Captains.

It was a fun week for sure with some close games sprinkled in. Let’s get to some rankings.


Week Ten Power Rankings

1) WillisBeTheYear- Gets the benefit of the doubt after a bad loss because there has to be some kind of letdown after a 425 point week. I still think this could be the team to beat. Especially when Jose Fernandez returns.

2) Yankeehaters- His bye week against Rays Those Cowbells was closer than he would’ve liked, but still got through it, and that’s what counts. What’s it say about me that he can have a bad week and still come out on top?

3) sportsmanMike- Four straight wins, 300 points in each of the last three. This team is on the warpath and cannot be stopped right now. I had to check the schedule and see when I’m playing this juggernaut. Sure enough, it’s not far off. If I’m really going to be this bad this season and out of contention, this is the team I hope wins. He’s paid his dues and never quit. He deserves a great season and a deep playoff run.

4) RedRays- Got a big win over Willis and took over the lead in the Beer division. Is this finally the consistency that this team has been lacking? Officially on a winning streak. The arrow is pointing up. Chris Archer is amazing! Got him in like the 16th round. Great drafting.

5) Love Boat Captains- Easily the lowest this team has been in the rankings all season. This team is ice cold. Losers of two straight and three of four, that 5-0 start looks like a distant memory. But lets not kid ourselves, she’ll be winning again, soon. And the people who doubted her will suffer along the way. This is still a really good team.

6) The October Boys- Remember a few weeks ago when I said this team was lying in the weeds and would go on a big run soon? Well here we go. Managed to still get a win even in a week where Felix Hernandez got blasted for a -19 score. This team is on a roll, and gets Rays Those Cowbells in Week 11. Expect the winning streak to reach three.

7) Stogies- As mentioned, got a huge win and got back to .500 with one of his best performances of the season. This team has been hitting all the right buttons as a manager, picking up guys like Lance McCullers and Mike Bolsinger and getting big performances from waiver wire pickups. I think this team could strengthen it’s rotation by picking up another closer and moving Carlos Martinez to the rotation.

8) Panda the Hammer- The good news is that Ryan Zimmerman went on the DL, and he won’t have to start him for awhile. I still think this team needs another bat. But I’m honestly not even sure if Sam is still around. Is he on autodraft this season? Where’s he at?

9) Believe The Hype- Switched up me and Allan to hopefully get a different vibe for our teams. That’s all I got. It’s been an awful season, but hey at least we’re in it together. Misery loves company.

10) Rays Those Cowbells- It’s kind of remarkable to me. This team is one of the best I’ve ever seen at just finding a way to have less points than it’s opponent at the end of the week. This week it was Rizzo and Harvey playing like garbage. Another week it could be Donaldson and Cole. Or maybe it’s an injury, or running into a team scoring 350 points that week. I’m out of answers. I need help.


Game of the Week

Love Boat Captains vs Yankeehaters

This marital showdown is always interesting. I think the Love Boat Captains break out in a big way this week.


Good luck to everyone in Week 11!

    LBC’s are going down. They are mediocre at best!

  2. Dan The #1 Rays Fan Says:

    I’m not sure about that. In fact, I may go as far as to say that the LBC’s are the “Lock of the week”? Other than the October Boys against Rays Those Cowbells of course. That’s going to be a bloodbath.
