Another bad week at the plate, if only batters had the strike board to blame. Only four dingers all week, and the two guys that did that are below.
VOTES ARE DUE BY FRIDAY AT NOON
- Matt Dreyfus (Canvassers): Dreyfus gets his first nomination of the summer and his first as a member of the Canvassers, the only remaining unbeaten team. Even though David Gross got the lone GWRBI in the game, Dreyfus was 3-6 batting leadoff and scored the game’s only run. He singled, doubled, and tripled. Any other week, a homer might have been possible for the cycle, but with a forfeit, 1 run was good enough for 2-0 to sit on top of the East.
- Kris Garcia (Rough Riders): Garcia gets his second nomination in a row, hitting two homers and driving in three runs and suddenly he’s back on the list for two the three batting triple crown categories. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to get 2 W’s, and the Riders may soon be eliminated from October, sitting at 3-5 over half way through the season.
- Daniel Sullivan (Mr. Party’s Waddle): The mascot, the notorious Mr. Party, finally showed up this week as did Waddle’s manager, Dan Sullivan. He hit 50% of the homers this week, and drove in five runs on his way to slugging 1.250 in his debut appearance. On the mound, he tossed six innings without giving up a run and struck out three. With a forfeit, his squad went 2-0, and if he keeps playing this way, and the penguin keeps coming, they might find their way into the playoffs.
