Shoutout to GratefulMatt for being the first person to submit his lineup last week and winning the week! Big week for Christian Yelich, Yordan Alvarez and of course Ding Master himself Pete Alonso. Also big week for Rowdy Tellez but Calvin C got his lineup in too late to enjoy two fo Tellez’s dingers last week. Still got the one from him though!

Meanwhile Mark better be counting his lucky stars he even had Alvarez on his squad given that Hunter Renfroe gave him nothing and Joey Gallo hasn’t played since beginning of June.

Real tight race at the top for number one between myself, Heath and GratefulMatt, all of us within one point of each other. Time to start putting some distance between me and the rest of the pack! WEEK 14 I’M COMING FOR YOUUUUUU!!!!!
