Natmosphere Fantasy Baseball League Week 3 Results

The story of the week in the Natmosphere fantasy baseball league was the Cheryl v. Dave Nationals News Network match-up. Dave entered the week in first place, but Cheryl knocked him all over the yard, winning 11 categories to 2. Both teams pitched well, but Cheryl's staff, led by Felix Hernandez, Chris Young, and Aaron Harang were lights out. Meanwhile, Cheryl swept every offensive category with big weeks from Curtis Granderson, Aramis Ramirez, and (surprisingly) Brandon Inge. With that impressive performance, Cheryl moved into first place in the league, and Dave slipped all the way to third.

We've Got Heart took out two weeks of frustration on VORP 10, Engage. Kristen simply massacred ol' TJ 10-3. She got solid all-around offense from Derek Jeter, Ryan Zimmerman, and Shane Victorino, but it was her pitching that really shined. Johan Santana, Johnny Cueto, Scott Kazmir, and Jair Jurrjens were all dominating.

I started and finished the week in second place, beating Sean from DC Sports Plus 9 categories to 4. I won every offensive category except stolen bases behind huge weeks from Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, and Carlos Beltran. We split the pitching categories pretty evenly, as my rotation led by Dan Haren, Jon Danks, and Derek Lowe was effectively countered by Sean's guys, including Rich Harden, Erik Bedard, and Scott Downs.

Finally, Musings of Kenny G beat up on Hendo 11-2. (I tend to think that Hendo's not totally paying attention, since he's starting ARod every week....). Jacoby Ellsbury, Manny Ramirez, and Carlos Lee led the way for Kenny's offense, while Yovani Gallardo and Matt Cain were his best on the mound.
