As weeks drag on, I find it more difficult to write this column. Not because I have lost my passion for baseball or writing, but rather because I am running out of metaphors for how useless the Astros have been to fantasy managers over the past month or so.
I won't bother with "Looking Back" or "Looking Ahead" because neither is worth looking at. Here is a weekly summary:
- Wandy Rodriguez was good, but only in five innings.
- Brett Myers got a save.
- The Astros' only good hitter was Scott Moore, but nobody owned him on Fantasy Teams, so who cares?
The Crawfish Boxes: HMC Wrecking Crew is back in first after winning against Cocamos. Best win goes to Tu Many Altooves who beat Lima-Time Clan by 12-0. Best win that did not involve a team missing inning requirements was Jellystone Berra's 2-9-1 win over me.
TCB Baseball Madness: The Beers is now in first place with a 10-1-1 win over brad e. That was also the most lopsided win of the week. Best legitimate win (inning requirements again) was Houston Buffs..? over Joe Morgan's a Fool by 9-3.
Boxes O' Crawfish: Astros don't suck now has a commanding lead after a legitimate 12-0 win over Bayou Dogs. Both teams met inning requirements, but ADS just dominated every category with All-Star worthy weeks from Mike Trout, Adam Lind, and James McDonald.
