HWC Baseball Recap: Week 9

The Hot Wing Conspiracy Fantasy Baseball has reached week 9 and I have the rest of the league right where I want them.

Here's how the scoring works: The stats your team builds up are broken down into 12 groups. For batters, there are runs, homeruns, RBI’s, Strike-outs, stolen bases, and batter’s average. For Pitching, there are Wins, Saves, Strike-outs, Holds, ERA, and WHIP. Each one of those is a win, a loss, or a tie. So in a given week, you can have any combination of wins, losses, and ties that add up to 12.

Robots Eat Babies - 5
The Galt-inators - 4
Don't call it a comeback. This marks 3 weeks worth of winning in a row for me. I've moved up from 15th place to 9th place during that impressive run. During Field Day, that would have netted me a ribbon.
MVP - José Castillo 2B (11/23 .478BA - 8R - 4HR - 15RBI)
Goat - Carlos Beltrán OF (3/18 - .167 BA - 4Ks)

Baghdad Bombers - 10
Repubs lost in SD - 1

Even Tina Turner knew when she was beat. Trevor Hoffman's saves kept this one from being a shutout. The Repubs have the same winning % as the Tampa Bay Devilrays.
MVP - Chone Figgins OF (6R - 5SB - 1HR)
Goat - John Koronka SP (2.2IP - 7ER - 23.63ERA)

The PAWs - 7
RFTR - 4
With 24 finished, RFTR looks to climb out of the cellar. Possibly starting next week.
MVP - Corey Patterson OF (7R - 2HR - 8SB)
Goat - Todd Jones RP (1BS - 1 L - 23.63 ERA)

bRight & Early - 6
Wookies Will Win - 6
Wookies are on suicide watch as Pujols is headed to the DL. The Magic 8-ball says things "don't look promising". Wookies are in 1st place by only 3 games, B&E is in 2nd.
MVP - Jermaine Dye OF (8R - 3HR - 6RBI)
Goat - Albert Pujols 1B (6K - 4/17 - on DL)

webcats - 5
The right wing nuts - 5
Parity. 5 of the categories were decided by 3 points or less.
MVP - Jason Schmidt (1W - 10K - 1.59 ERA)
Goat - Carl Everett OF (4/19 - 5K)

fmragtops' spewers - 8
Gashouse Gorillas - 4
As commish, I plan on checking the bats used by fmragtops and his team. They hit 14 HRs, someone must be on the juice. DING!
MVP - Jacque Jones OF (.458 BA - 6R - 3HR - 8RBI)
Goat - Chris Shelton 1B (0/17 - .000 BA - K)

Columbia Cardinals - 6
CZC Owns - 5

CC had only 3 HRs during the week, that hurts. Barry Bonds isn't producing in his post-juice phase. CCs team has the offensive skills of a bad tee-ball team. Both teams put up pitching numbers that look like something out of the KC Royals media guide. Ouch.
MVP - Nobody
Goat - Geoff Jenkins OF (7K - 1/21 .048 BA)

Akhtar the Divorcee - 8
Poca Dots Blog! - 4

Both teams put up decent numbers, however Akhtar's batters struck out 41 times! But since chicks dig the long ball, he did hit 8HRs to win that category.
MVP - Miguel Tejada SS (6R - 6 HR - .423BA)
Goat - Ryan Howard 1B (3/24 - 12Ks)
