Standings Summary - Week 3
Riding a seven game winning streak to compliment a superb 10-4 Week 3 Simulation, the Eugene Psycho Llamas are now the leading Wild Card team in the Greenhorn Division. While their season total Run Differential is nothing out of the ordinary at +14, its worthy to note it was in the negative entering the start of play for Week 3.
Aside from a great sim from Batter of the Week Joe DiMaggio, several others excelled for the the Llamas. Lead-off hitter Billy Hamilton batted over .300 with a .403 OBP; Bret Saberhagen pitched 30 innings and gave up just 9 earned runs (2.70 ERA) and reliever Dean Chance pitched 10 innings without allowing any runners to cross the plate. The team ERA was 3.53 and they scored the third most runs during the week.
In the Mossback Division, the San Diego Puff rode took the hoopla surrounding their new logo in stride and got down to business to the tune of an inedible 12-2 record. As a team they batted .316 / .353 / .442 for the second best OPS on Sim, while their pitching was just as good - a team 2.72 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. Cliff Melton was runner up in the POTW award going undefeated in 3 starts with a 1.50 ERA. George Sisler and Derrek Lee were the key batters for the Puff offense combining for 6 HR and 31 RBI.
