Round of applause for your’s truly who not only took home the win this week, but also did so after debating long and hard about picking Mookie Betts, didn’t because the wound is still too raw, and then watching him hit four dingers this past week. If I would have lost this week and all I needed to do was pick Mookie to have won, it would have been a sad, sad day in the Rogers household.

Shoutout to Fes who took Anthony Santander and watched the young man go yard four times this week. Little fantasy baseball advice here from the guy that doesn’t play: go get Anthony Santander if he’s available in your league. The kid is good.

Also props to Mark who’s elite didn’t play a game this week and he still managed to tie for with Garrett.

Best ding donger of the week: Anthony Rendon & Juan Soto (5)
