SMACK TALK SHOWDOWN
This week’s Pick-Em Match-Up between the LeBronto Blue James and Jackal Attack featured the two best Twitter accounts that the HumBabe Dynasty has to offer, and along with that, the best of our smack-talkers. The Blue James, two time defending League Champions, have naturally earned some targets on their back and Jackal Attack has sent the most arrows in their direction as of late. When it came time to put up or shut up, LeBronto found a way to keep putting up. Led by a 50.75 point effort from Sandy Alcantara’s two-start week, the Blue James took the Pitching Points by a near 80 point advantage over Jackal. Shohei Ohtani continued to produce for Jackal, but Vlad Guerrero Jr managed just 11 points in his twenty Week Six at-bats. Additional lackluster performances from Luis Garcia (4.75 points) and Tommy Pham (5 points) all contributed to Jackal’s 70 point defeat and moved them to a 4-2 record, with the League’s 3rd best Season Point Total. LeBronto holds the Basket Catch League’s #1 Seed with a 5-1 record and 2nd best League Season Point Total.
General Manager’s that selected the LeBronto Blue James in Pick-Em included the Robins, Pablo, Studs, Tubmen, Splitters and Blue James. Pablo and the Robins now have 3 correct picks over the course of the month, but still trail the Month One Pick-Em Winner – Orlando Splitters – who have not only gone 4 for 4 this month but also hold the Point Total tiebreaker by a margin of almost 190 and have all but locked in their second consecutive payout.
Lots of Hair On This One
The most impressive performance of HumBabe Dynasty’s Week Six came from a team that fell just short collecting a win. The hairy Tubmen put up 494.5 collective points from May 16th to May 22nd, which would have been more than enough to beat any team in the League, apart from one. And that one was naturally their opponent, the Orlando Splitters, who managed just 2 points more than the Tubmen total. Anthony Santander certainly led the way, averaging 6.36 points per Game for a total of 44.5, but Tommy Edman (42 points) and Trea Turner (37 points) also contributed to the Tubmen 307 Hitting Point total. Unfortunately, the Tubmen stand at .500 (3-3) and hold a #4 Seed in the Shot Call League but the underlying stat of 2562.083 Season Points (5th Best Total, 4th Most Hitting Points, 7th Most Pitching Points) tells us that the Tubmen are a force to be reckoned with in 2022.
Players Of Note
Trevor Story came out of his slump in Week Six and produced a League Best 84 points (12 per game average) for Straight Outta deGrompton, and the Orlando Splitters claimed three of the Best 10 Week Six Player Performances thanks to Paul Goldscmidt, CJ Cron and Randy Arozarena. On the year, Manny Machado is the League’s best player with 237 Fantasy Points for the Moose Mounties, followed by Aaron Judge, Mookie Betts, Mike Trout and Jose Ramirez – all with more than 220 points to date. On the Pitching front, Joe Musgrove’s 176.75 is the League’s best, followed by Max Scherzer, Shane McClanahan, Justin Verlander and Dylan Cease – all above 168 points.
