One week in the Natmosphere Fantasy Baseball League is in the books. Here's how everyone fared...
Hendo dropped his week one match-up with NNN Cheryl by the score of 9-5, as his pitching staff, led by Brandon Webb, B.J. Ryan, Brett Myers, Justin Verlander and the injured John Lackey fell apart totally en route to a 7.47 ERA. Cheryl also got a massive first week from Alfonso Soriano, enough to top solid performances by Hendo's Albert Pujols and Victor Marinez-led attack.
NNN Dave's squad led by Miggy Cabrera, Jake Peavy, and Carlos Zambrano barely edged out Kenny G. by the score of 8-5, mainly because Kenny's highly touted rotation of Tim Lincecum, Cole Hamels, and Cliff Lee all crapped the bed, ruining a great opening week by Evan Longoria.
In the week's closest match-up, Sean from DC Sports Plus nosed out commenter TJ by the score of 6-4 with a balanced offense led by Kevin Youkilis.
And my squad, led by Chase Utley, Chipper Jones, Yunel Escobar, and Kelly Johnson (can you guess my strategy?), took it to Kristen from We've Got Heart, 10-4. The WGH loyalty to the Nationals is a welcome addition to our fantasy league. When Anderson Hernandez, Jesus Flores, Adam Dunn, Emilio Bonifacio, Ryan Zimmerman, and John Lannan all heat up at the same time, Kristen's gonna rock.
