Thought I could get a win from Axford or Guerra to tie my opponent in W's. Got a loss in ERA and wins if Zimmerman has a quality start, instead :-t

seeing how Boston went so long today, would anyone think it's a good idea to start Jonathan Sanchez against the Red Sox tomorrow?

Had a wild week, where i was up 12-0 for the first 2 and 1/2 days, then immediately fell behind 4-8 after that. Slowly came back, went into today tied up, and pulled ahead today and pulled off an 8-4 win after 2 scoreless innings from Rafael Dolis.

Dolis' 2 scoreless got me ERA back. But Bryce Harper's steal of home broke a tie in steals, which sucks. I hate weeks like this. I scored 35 runs and stole 7 bags and lost both categories.

in todays game for the Tigers Andy Dirks got the start in the 2 spot instead of Boesch. he went 2 for 5 with a HR.
is this something that could continue going forward? Dirks in the spot could get a big boost in value batting in front of Cabrera/Fielder.

So I was up 8-2 going into the night game. He had Hunter Pence. I was up by 4 in RBI and was leading OPS. Pence has 4 RBI and somehow he pushed his OPS ahead of mine. 6-4.

As if I didn't love Cole enough.

That's just -- you know what, it's something that I grew up watching, that's what happened, so I'm just trying to continue the old baseball -- I think some people kind of get away from it. I remember when I was a rookie the strike zone was really really small and you didn't say anything just because that's the way baseball is. Sometimes the league is protecting certain players and making it not that old-school, prestigious way of baseball.

Thumped the league leader 19-9. You'll never guess who isn't the league leader and now is the league leader... :-b
