Well done Fes taking home the win this week thanks to Jesus Aguilar knocking the ball outta the park thrice this past week. Round of applause for that! I was rightfully punished last week after I tried to pass Rafael Devers as an everyone else and then replaced him with Mike Yastrzemski who played all of no games last week. I deserve what I got. Golf clap for Aaron Judge as well for remembering how to hit home runs. Remember when the Yankees were good?

Dong leader last week: Kris Bryant, Jose Ramirez, and Alex Kirilloff all knocked four dingers last week.

Onto Week 5!
