Picking The Right Golf Ball

Wed 8/11

The boys hit .360 tonight with 4 runs scored and 6 RBIs. Desmond belted 2 over the fence, while Fielder got his first homer in 2-3 weeks. Also, Torres stole 2 bases and Zimmerman added a 3rd.

On the pitching front, Buccholz pitched 8 innings of shutout ball. He struck out 4 with a 0.88 WHIP to earh the W.

A few milestones in the standings. Naturally, I've never had this many points. I've held onto 2nd place for several days now. But, I also am stunningly in 8th place for stolen bases, one of my biggest weaknesses all season. Crisp has been huge, and Torres and Desmond are also solid steal threats. Also of note is that, for the first time, I'm in 9th for AVG, having gotten all the way up to .266. I remember when I was typically the bottom feeder in RBIs, steals, and average. The improvement in those categories has been key to my rise.

One category with a ceiling is saves. I'm currently tied for 6th with 42, riding Gregg, Simon, and Heilman. Simon's days could be numbered as he's struggled since the break. Some other heel took Mike Gonzalez, whose tenure on the DL was the main reason for Simon's emergence. And Heilman is mainly in his current situation because the D-backs have a lousy bullpen and Gutierrez is on the DL. Gregg, who has given me 25 of my 42 saves this season, is the main solid boy. In summary, I'll have to keep my eyes open for the different closer situations. Took a look at the news flashes. Axford (sob) is still the closer in Milwaukee, although Hoffmann is out there. What I'm seeing right now is Putz of the Chicago Sox and Joel Hanrahan of Pitt. Hanrahan is the "newly installed closer"; however he has blown 3 saves and only saved 1 all season. Putz could be a possibility; but who would I drop to pick him up? Maybe I should wait for the Heilman/Gutierrez fiasco to play out. If it becomes clear that Simon is worthless then I'll look into trying to gobble up more saves.

Standings: 10, 9, 7, 5, 4; 10, 12, 6.5, 11, 8 (2nd, 82.5 pts)

Wed 8/18

With Johnson and Helton still finishing up their games, my boys have hit .390 tonight. 7 runs scored, 7 RBIs, stolen bases by Bartlett and Crisp, and 3 homers. Crisp, Mauer, and Torres each belted one over the fence.

Pitching was not so good. Floyd got knocked out of the park, putting in a lousy performance for the 2nd straight game. Garza has been on a semi-roll lately, so I think a switch might be appropriate.
