Lushbucket Baseball League Recap - Week 6

The boys only hit .254 this week, but it was enough to beat Frank 9-0 sending the Donkies into second place. Still not getting production up and down the lineup though and I'm thinking it's getting to be about time to cut ties with Eric Hosmer. I really thought the Royals first baseman would break out this year, but he's actually got a lower batting average than Albert Pujols right now and this year that's saying something. I'm a little concerned about Heath Bell and his 10.03 ERA as well, but at least he got me a pair of wins out of the Marlins pen this week. Anyhow, here's a rundown of Week 6:

Best Available:

Runs - Alejandro De Aza (White Sox), Rafael Furcal (St. Louis), Mark Ellis (Dodgers) - 25
HRs - Edwin Encarnacion (Toronto), Adam Dunn (White Sox) - 11
RBIs - Edwin Encarnacion (Toronto) - 29
SBs - Cameron Maybin (San Diego) - 10
Avg - Rafael Furcal (St. Louis) - .383 (51/133)

ERA - Jake Westbrook (St. Louis) - 1.76 (41 IP)
WHIP - Gavin Floyd (White Sox) - 0.95 (46 1/3 IP)
W - Ted Lilly (Dodgers),  R.A. Dickey (Mets), Chris Capuano (Dodgers), Tommy Milone (Oakland), Derek Lowe (Cleveland) - 5
SV - Grant Balfour (Oakland), Jonathan Broxton (Kansas City), Matt Capps (Minnesota), Santiago Casilla (San Francisco) - 7
SO - Jeff Samardzija (Cubs), Vance Worley (Philadelphia) - 45

Biggest Shock of the Week:

Benny actually dropped Jonny Venters, one of his beloved Braves. The only thing more shocking is that Frank hasn't picked up Will Middlebrooks yet. He's right there, Frank. I know you want him.

Players With More Home Runs Than Albert Pujols:

The saga continues. The Machine has just 1 homer in 142 at bats this season. Here's ten guys who have more homers than Albert:

Will Middlebrooks
Robert Andino
Shelley Duncan
Darnell McDonald
Mike Carp
Elliot Johnson
Chone Figgins
Nick Johnson
Andruw Jones
Eric Chavez
