Papa Mike Trout came to life this week going yard four times and reminding everyone that he is pretty dang good at hitting the ball hard. I thought his big week was going to help propel me forward but Mark and Heath had to come in and try and get in on the fun. Lamers.

Also welcome back to the club Feslenraster! A good first week too as both Nick Castellanos and Wil Myers put up three dingers this week.

Somehow yet again I’m in last. I hate this game I made up.

Best home run hitter of the week: Fernando Tatis Jr (6)
