A win this week for Fes as he rode the hot hand of Anthony Santader who put up another three dingers this week. Well done! Also tip of the ol’ cap to Cody Bellinger for also going yard thrice.

This was a TOUGH week for Mark who could have easily won the week had he just gotten his lineup in on time. Since he was a day late he missed a dinger from Eloy Jimenez and the two home runs Luis Robert knocked on Monday. Like I said, TOUGH.

Another great week for me and my love for this game I made up. What am I doing with my life?

Best ding donger of the week: Jose Abreu (6)
