Pick-Em Payout #2
Julio Rodriguez has officially stepped into the three hole for the Seattle Mariners, and in his 21 Week Seven At-Bats produced a Match-Up 2nd best 33 points, trailing only his Pablo teammate, Aaron Judge (40 points). The San Francisco Studs continue to stumble through and injury plagued season, with Fernando Tatis, Eloy Jimenez, Jesus Luzardo and Nick Lodolo all on the Injured Reserve, the Studs 297.5 Point Total was led by Aaron Nola’s 32.42 points and Gio Urshella’s 30.5 points. While it certainly hurts to leave Joc Pederson’s 3-HRs and 35 FPts on the bench, likewise with 19 Uncollected Dylan Cease Points, that still wouldn’t have been enough to overcome the 72.75 point deficit to Pablo this week. Pablo moves to a 5-2 record on the Year, owns the League’s 4th Best Season Point Total, and currently stands in the #3 Seed position of the Basket Catch League Playoff picture.
As predicted in last week’s recap, the Orlando Splitter’s GM clinched his second Pick-Em Payout in a row to start the 2022 Season. A perfect 5 for 5 in Pick-Em and a League Best Point Total to cap it off.
Investment Paying Off
The Super Smash ‘Stros claimed Francisco Lindor with the 6th Overall Pick in the HumBabe Dynasty Inaugural 2019 Draft, and has since probably thought of what could have been with that pick. Lindor has totaled 1,447 Fantasy Points since being selected prior to the 2019 Season, which among other 1st Round HumBabe Dynasty picks such as Mookie Betts (1,773 points) and Jose Ramirez (1,773 points) who were selected before Lindor, and Bryce Harper (1,806 pts), Trea Turner (1,737 pts) and Juan Soto (1,915 pts) selected after him, doesn’t stack up that well. But here we are in 2022, and the New York Met Shortstop comes off a League Best Week Seven performance with 70.5 Fantasy Points, and moves into a Season Total good for 4th Best among all players. This turnaround for Lindor, frankly, couldn’t have come at a better time. The Super Smash ‘Stros have managed to collect Shane McClanahan and a supporting cast that has earned a 5-2 record so far in 2022, and a driver’s seat position for the Shot Call League’s #3 Postseason Seed.
