Hot Wing Conspiracy - Recap Week 4

The Hot Wing Conspiracy Fantasy Baseball has reached week 4.

Here's how the scoring works: The stats your team builds up are broken down into 12 groups. For batters, there’s runs, homeruns, RBI’s, Strike-outs, stolen bases, and batter’s average. For Pitching, there’s 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.

Week 4 Recap
webcats - 7
Robots Eat Babies - 5

pitching - I built my team on pitching, so it's fitting that I lost all the pitching categories except for Strikeouts and Holds. Webcats have David Weathers who had 4 saves last week, A Reds pitcher is not supposed to do that.
batting - Webcats and I split the hitting, each of us winning 3 categories.
MVP - Garrett Atkins (7 R, 2 HR, 6 RBI)

bRight & Early - 6
Baghdad Bombers - 6
pitching - B&E dominated pitching (4 of 6)
batting - BB dominated batting (4 of 6)
MVP - Chris Capuano (2W, 12K, 0.56 ERA)

Poca Dots Blog! - 5
RFTR - 5
pitching - RFTR dominated the pitching, winning 4 but tied in holds.
batting - I hear that RFTR does not check his team. Which would explain why he still has Ken Griffey JR in his outfield. He lost every category except for strikeouts. They tied on HRs.
MVP - Magglio Ordóñez (6 R, 2 HR, .435 BA)

fmragtops' spewers - 4
The right wing nuts - 6
pitching - FS was able to pull out 4 of the 6 categories. It helps that RWN has 2 pitchers on the DL.
batting - Derek Lee is still starting on RWNs team. He has a fractured wrist and will be out 2-3. Despite that hole, RWN shutout FS in every category.
MVP - Kevin Mench (6 R, 4 HR, 10 RBI, .435 BA)

CZC Owns - 4
Wookies Will Win - 8

pitching - CZC beat up on a weak WWW pitching staff, winning 4 of 6 - even with Jeff Weaver and his 30.86 ERA last week.
batting - If Carlos Delgado had not struck out 8 times last week, WWW might have won every batting category.
MVP - Jermaine Dye (4 R, 3 HR, 6 RBI, .318 BA)

Akhtar the Divorcee - 7
The PAWs - 5

pitching - PAWs almost swept the pitching categories, saves went to AtD.
batting - AtD swept all 6 batting categories.
MVP - Brian Fuentes (1W, 3SVs)

Columbia Cardinals - 10
Repubs lost in SD - 1

pitching - CC employs a platoon method of pitching. They have 14 pitchers, who swept the pitching category (they tied in Holds)
batting - Don't laugh - the batting categories were closer than this looks. Moisés Alou counted for 30% of CCs RBIs. A couple of points and this matchup might have been competitive.
MVP - Moisés Alou (4 R, 3 HR, 12 RBI, .500 BA)

Gashouse Gorillas - 5
The Galt-inators - 7

pitching - The Galts have 2 pitchers on the DL and one who is not even playing baseball (Roger Clemens), yet they still won 4 categories.
batting - GGs managed to squeak out 3 categories, splitting with The Galts.
MVP - Johnny Damon (10 R, 2 HR, 5 SB, .429 BA)

That's it for Week 4. Next week the recap will be hosted at GOP and College.
