So it is 2 to 2 with only runs up in the air. And as of right now they both have 66 runs. Should be a heck of a battle over the last 10 games.

Brett Lawrie: .273 AVG, 11 HR, 48 RBI, 13 SB, 73 R Mike Moustakas: .242 AVG, 20 HR, 73 RBI, 5 SB, 69 R

And despite Lawrie missing over a month to injury (which was no surprise with his playing style), I win. Overall, they were pretty underwhelming offensive years by both players, but none of that matters now.

Yep, I believe it was a sig bet. Feel free to let me know.

Moose won the two cats I expected, it was a just going to come down to whether or not he could get Lawrie in BA or Rs.

I don't think anyone can consider winning that. You should both have to wear 'Lawrie/Mous was awful in 2012' sigs.

Well considering that if we had polled the Cafe before the season started the prevailing thought probably would have been a Lawrie sweep and it not really being close in any category, I wouldn't really say Mous was awful for the 15th 3B off the board.
