ABL Fantasy Week 4

The rain-outs in Sydney meant that players on the Blue Sox and the Bite had half the opportunities to score points as the rest of the league and our top scores this week are correspondingly a little lower.

Round 4 winner – Steve Smith’s Royboys on 159 points.

The unexpected has occurred and Steve Smith’s Royboys have bumped Boris’s Tunkin Donuts out of first place in the full-season competition.  Oh it’s on, baby.  It’s ALL on.

Short-season  average comp has Crash Davis’s Visalia Rawhide 1 point in front of zzzzzzzzebras’ team-name-that-changes-every-week-but-this-week-was “Golden Boyz”.

Best new player – Shorty’s The Winfield Seagulls.

Best Fantasy Pitcher – Steve Kent, who threw a crazy 13 strikeouts in 7 innings (full-game shut-out) on his way to 40 points.

Best Fantasy Bat  – Jack Murphy’s back.  16 points.

Best manager theatrics – Jason Pospishil’s line-drawing, hat-throwing, hat-kicking, base-hurling 5 minutes of glory. Honestly, it’s going to take turning into a werewolf to beat this one. Pops, we salute you.
