There is nothing good to say about the Astros' fantasy performance last week. The only player who was not a total disaster to his fantasy managers was Brett Myers, and that's just because he contributed one save without giving up a run. The hitting was atrocious, and the Astros 2nd and 3rd best-ranked pitchers on Yahoo last week were Wilton Lopez and Kyle Weiland, neither of whom logged an inning.
Avert your eyes Astros fans, and look to the future.
The Astros should be able to rebound against Kansas City and Cleveland this week, as neither of those teams' starting lineups, rotations, or bullpens are as fierce as those the Astros faced during the week past. Expect a rebound from just about everybody. Which is to say, if one player performs as he has during the season as a whole instead of how he did last week, that will constitute a rebound for the entire team.
Until the starting pitchers figure out why they can't miss bats or avoid big innings, best keep them on your bench or drop all non-Wandys and non-Buds. They're just not rosterable at this point.
Crawfish Boxes Leagues
- The Crawfish Boxes - HMC Wrecking Crew finally dethroned me from the #1 spot after a 11-1-0 win over Lulecitos. That tied for best win of the week with Jellystone Beras, who beat Lima-Time Clan. Vengeance shall be mine.
- TCB Baseball Madness - I was knocked out of first in this league also this week, by Joe Morgan's a Fool. Best win goes to AlwaysSunnyInSeattle 11-1-0 over brad e.
- Boxes O' Crawfish - Astros Don't Suck is still in first despite a 3-8-0 loss, but lowastros is sneaking up behind after a 11-1-0 win over Bayou Dogs. I've climbed all the way to fourteenth place in this league after an 11-1-0 win over last-place WildHaze, and the Caveman also beat House 11-1-0. Root. Root. Root.
