Week #11 has the Tampa Bay Rays still sitting atop all of the Real Deal Dynasty League with a 40-9 record. They are the first 40 win team of the season. Even so, they only have a 3 game lead in the AL East over the Boston Red Sox as they are sitting with a 37-12 record. The second best record in the league belongs to the Houston Astros of the AL West. They have a 39-10 record and hold a 5 game lead over the Texas Rangers at 34-15. To see the third best team, you need to check out the NL East. There, the New York Mets are atop the division with a 38-11 record. The Miami Marlins are in second at 33-16, sitting 5 games back. They are the only other 30 win team in the NL East. The NL Central standing seem to be frozen now. Once again, both the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers are tied for first place with identical 36-13 records. They are the only 2 teams in the division over .500. The AL Central has 3 teams above .500 and they are led by the Kansas City Royals with a 33-16 record. 4 games behind them are the Detroit Tigers with a 29-18 record. Then there’s the NL West. One of the most impressive divisional battles. There are 3 teams tied for the top spot with a 31-18 record. The Arizona Diamondbacks, Los Angeles Dodgers, & San Diego Padres are all tied for first place. Not to be outdone, the Colorado Rockies are 2 games back at 29-20. The last place team isn’t doing too shabby either. The San Francisco Giants are still above .500 with a 25-24 record.

Here’s a look at some of the top players for the week:

1B There were only two 1B to score more than 40pts in Week #11 and they were led by Anthony Rizzo(CHC) as he scored 45.421pts. Rizzo is also 2nd in season points for 1B with 340.084pts and is ranked 3rd overall in the league. Albert Pujols(HOU) had the other 40pt week with 43.975pts. He’s ranked 8th in season points for 1B with 268.774pts.

2B The 2B point leader was up just a bit from last week. Jason Kipnis(SDP) was the top guy with 34.130pts. That shouldn’t come as a surprise as he’s the leading scorer at 2B with 299.945pts. He has over a 30pt lead over Brian Dozier(LAA). The surprise is the 2nd highest scorer at 2B. Derek Dietrich(NYM) scored 32.741pts. This was his first appearance in a game in the Real Deal Dynasty League.

3B Back to back top week at 3B for Manny Machado(LAD) as he exploded for 67.866pts. It was the second highest score of the week. Manny has scored over 100pts in the last 2 weeks and his season total is now over 300pts with 304.567pts. That moved him up to 3rd in points for 3B. Brock Holt(BAL) has played every week this season but only had 2 weeks over 20pts. This week, he blasted 53.131pts. He raised his season point total up to 177.229pts.

SS Ben Zobrist missed 4 weeks of the season, but has slowly started climbing the stats ladder. This week, he led all SS with 50.255pts. His best week of the season raised his point total up to 147.507pts. Alcides Escobar(CHW) has also missed some time this season as he was out for 3 weeks. This was his 3rd 30pt week as he scored 36.624pts. He now has 143.326pts this season.

OF The league’s top scorer of the week was an outfielder as Mookie Betts(TBR) led all players with 68.011pts. He’s only had 1 other week over 30pts when he scored 39.958pts in Week #5. He now has 239.504pts on the season and has jumped up to 15th for all outfielders. Lorenzo Cain(BOS) started out the season on fire with over 82pts in the first 2 weeks. Since then, he’s been struggling. That is until this week when he scored 52.872pts. He has 223.362pts on the season.

C Catchers are still producing and this week was led by Stephen Vogt(NYM). He scored 45.050pts. He hit a rough patch the last 2 weeks with only 6.5pts scored. Now he seems to be back on track and has moved into 2nd for catchers with 231.607pts on the season. Yadir Molina(COL) also had a rough last 2 weeks with only 14.3pts. That didn’t deter him from scoring 39.575pts this week. His 153.13 season points has him ranked 8th among catchers.

SP Back to back weeks of no-hitters brings that pitcher to the top of the scoring leaderboard. Max Scherzer(DET) did his magic and scored 39.75pts. He’s been playing solidly this season and is now the #1 ranked Real Deal pitcher with 222.75pts. He’s also the only SP over 200 season points. Jake Arrieta(SDP) had the second highest SP week with 28.5pts. He scored 30.25pts in Week #6 but only scored 34pts in the last 4 weeks. He’s now has 142.25pts on the season and is ranked 13th for SP’s.

RP Jason Grilli(NYM) was the only RP to score over 20pts this week as he had 23pts scored. It was his first week over 20pts as his previous best was 15.25pts in Week #7. It was only his 3rd double digit point week and his season total is now at 80.25pts. Aroldis Chapman(SDP) had the next best week with 19.25pts. That jumped him up to 4th for RP’s with 125.5 season points.

3 Stars Real Deal Dynasty Baseball Week #10

Giancarlo Stanton(MIA) was all smiles in Week #10 as he exploded for 73pts.
Giancarlo Stanton(MIA) was all smiles in Week #10 as he exploded for 73pts.

 

Week #10 and in the AL East, the Tampa Bay Rays are the only team left in the Real Deal Dynasty League with single digit losses as they sit at 35-9. That doesn’t exactly mean a comfortable lead in the division. The Boston Red Sox are still knocking on their door with a 34-10 record. In the AL West, the Houston Astros are sitting at the top and they are tied with the Red Sox with the 2nd best record as they are at 34-10 too. They have a slightly more comfortable lead in the division as the Texas Rangers are in 2nd place at 29-15 and sit 5 games back. This 5 game lead is tied for the biggest division lead with the NL East. The New York Mets lead their division with a 33-11 record and they hold their 5 game lead over the Miami Marlins, who are sitting at 28-16. And we have a tie! We been watching the chase by the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central as they’ve been hunting the Milwaukee Brewers. They’ve now caught them and both teams sit atop the division with 32-12 records. Is somebody going to break away in Week #11? In the AL Central, the Kansas City Royals are at the top of the crowded heap with a 31-13 record. They have a 4 game lead, but there are 2 teams chasing them. Both the Detroit Tigers & Minnesota Twins have 27-17 records. The NL West has the lowest winning percentage for the 1st place team, but don’t let that fool you into thinking this is a weak division. The Arizona Diamondbacks have a 30-14 record. They only have 1 game lead over the San Diego Padres with a 29-15 record. All teams in this division are playing .500 ball or better.

Here’s a look at some of the top players for the week:

1B Joey Votto(BOS) led all 1B with 46.323pts and he also had the 3rd highest score of the week. Votto has now posted 3 solid weeks in a row and his season point total has risen to 270.173pts. That ranks him 4th for 1B. Miguel Cabrera(DET) was the only other 1B to score over 40pts in Week #10 with 42.811pts. It was the first time in 3 weeks he scored over 20pts. He has 291.698pts on the season and that ranks him 3rd for 1B.

2B There were only two 2B to score over 30pts this past week and they were led by Jace Peterson(ATL) as he scored 33.384pts. This was his best week of the season as he only had 2 other weeks over 20pts. He now has 124.892pts on the season. D.J. LeMahieu(BAL) was the other 2B with more than 30pts as he scored 30.134pts. On a hot streak, D.J. Has scored over 20pts in each of the last 4 weeks. He now has 194.676pts on the season and has moved up to 8th in scoring for 2B.

3B Manny Machado(LAD) led the hot corner with 43.118pts. He was the only 3B to score over 40pts. He had the 5th highest score of the week. It was the first time he scored over 40pts this season as he bumped his season total to 236.701pts. He’s ranked 4th in scoring for 3B. Todd Frazier(HOU) almost hit 40pts as he scored 39.634pts. He’s been in teeter-totter mode the last month as he scored 39 this week, 14 last week, 59 the week before, & only 3pts the week before that. Even with that yo-yo activity, he has 291.557pts on the season & is ranked 2nd for 3B behind only Josh Donaldson. If this pattern continues, will the Astros be benching him as he’s due for a rough week? I know, I would. Statistics never lie!

SS Jose Reyes(TBR) made it back to back weeks as the #1 Star at SS as he scored 25.786pts. Since coming back to the lineup 3 weeks ago, Reyes has scored over 89pts and has now scored 130.205pts on the season. Wilmer Flores(NYM) was right behind Jose with 24.670pts. It’s his first time over 20pts since Week #6. He has 159.59pts on the season and is ranked 7th for SS.

OF Here’s where the biggest Star Of The Week is shining. Giancarlo Stanton(MIA) was by far the top scorer of the week as he had 73.020pts. That shot his season point total up to 285.387pts. He is also ranked 2nd for OF in season points, behind only Bryce Harper(WAS). By the way, Harper had the 2nd highest OF score with 36.284pts in Week #10. That makes back to back 30 plus point weeks for him. He is also the 3rd player in the Real Deal League to score over 300pts on the season as he has 304.48pts.

C For the 2nd time this season, Russell Martin(DET) scored over 40pts in a week. This week, he scored 45.820pts. No other catcher has done that twice. Martin vaulted to 214.692pts on the season and he is ranked 2nd for catchers, behind only Buster Posey. Miguel Montero(TOR) had his best week of the season as he scored 37.347pts. That moved him up to 8th in season points for catchers as he now has 138.28pts.

SP I don’t know if you were expecting a surprise name in the #1 Star slot, but it isn’t going to happen. Chris Heston(SFG) threw a no-hitter and that’s got to nab you the #1 slot. For the week, he scored 46.5pts. Suprisingly, he had the 2nd highest score of the week in the league, behind only Statnton. Not a usual position for a SP to be in. He bounced back nicely after he scored negative points last week. He now has 111.25pts on the season. Max Scherzer(DET) threw a 1-hitter with 16 K’s in his only start of the week and he scored 39.75pts. He is now the top scoring SP in the league as he has 183pts on the season. Throwing a 1-hitter and getting 16 K’s is a pretty impressive performance. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say he has an even more memorable game in Week #11. We’ll have to wait and see.

RP Two players were at the top of the RP leaderboard as they both scored 21pts. Craig Kimbrel(WAS) had his first 20pt week of the season and only the 4th time he scored over 10pts in a week. Kenley Jansen(ATL) also scored 20pts in Week #10. He’s only been playing the last 5 weeks and it’s the 3rd time he scored in double digits. He now has 57.5pts on the season.

3 Stars Real Deal Dynasty Baseball Week #9

Jose Bautista(MIL) was flexing his muscle as he was the only player to break 50pts in Week #9.
Jose Bautista(MIL) was flexing his muscle as he was the only player to break 50pts in Week #9.

 

Week #9 still has the Tampa Bay Rays with the best record in the Real Deal with a 33-7 record. They lead the AL East by only 2 games as the Boston Red Sox continue to roll as well. They are tied in the league with the 2nd best record at 31-9. In the NL East, the New York Mets still have a strong hold on top of the division standings with a 31-9 record. They have a 7 game lead over 2nd place Miami Marlins at 24-16. That’s actually the worst record for a 2nd place team in the Real Deal League. The NL Central still has the Milwaukee Brewers at the top of the standings with a 31-9 record. They are currently holding a 3 game lead over the ever clammoring, door knocking, shouting at the top team, Chicago Cubs. The Cubs have a 28-12 record. In the AL West, the Houston Astros remain in 1st place as they went undefeated this past week and improved to 30-10. They hold a 4 game lead over the Texas Rangers who are sitting at 26-14 and went undefeated last week too. The NL West continues to be a divisional battle between all teams. The Arizona Diamondbacks are currently the top team with a 30-10 record. The San Diego Padres are in 2nd place with a 27-13 record. The worst 1st place record is in the AL Central and belongs to the Kansas City Royals. At a .700 winning percentage, I wouldn’t consider that a total disaster. The Royals have a 28-12 record. They currenlty hold a 2 game lead over the Minnesota Twins as they sit at 26-14.

1B Anthony Rizzo(CHC) had his best week of the season with 49.454pts. It’s not like he’s been struggling before. This is his 4th week out of 9 where he scored over 40pts. He’s also 2nd in the league with 288.419pts on the season. Freddie Freeman(WAS) had his 2nd 40pt week of the season as he scored 44.761pts. That pushed his season point total up to 174.163pts. He’s is currently ranked 12th for all 1B.

2B Dustin Pedroia(LAD) had his first 30pt week of the season as he scored 37.662pts this week. He has been very consistent all season and has 196.789pts on the season. That has him ranked 5th among all 2B. Behind Dustin was Brian Dozier(LAA) as he scored 33.140pts in Week #9. Dozier has been solid all season and recorded his fourth 30pt week. He also has 224.135 season points and is only 1 of 4 2B with over 200pts. He’s ranked 2nd behind only Jason Kipnis(SDP) at the position.

3B We have a new face getting a 3B 3 Star Salute. Maikel Franco(PHI) had the third best scoring performance of the week with 46.25pts. It was only the 4th week he’s played this season and he doubled his season point total to 90.816pts. Brett Lawrie(MIA) also had a solid week with 32.955pts. That boosted his season point total over 100pts as he’s sitting with 124.606pts. That got him into the Top 20 for 3B in points for the season.

SS Jose Reyes(TBR) was the top scoring shortstop with 41.484pts. It was also his first time this season getting over 30pts. He missed 3 weeks but since his return, he’s scored over 63pts in the last 2 weeks. He now has 104.419pts on the season. Troy Tulowitzki(COL) had his best week of the season and the first time over 30pts as he scored 39.319pts. He now has 159.724pts on the year and is ranked 5th for shortstop on season points.

OF Jose Bautista(MIL) was big man on campus with the only 50pt game of the week as he scored 54.56pts. He’s been solid all season long with only 3 weeks scored under 20pts. His weekly point totals have gone up each time in the past 4 weeks. Not sure if he’ll be able to improve on 50pts, but his season total is already at 231.377pts. That ranks him 5th among all outfielders in season points. A.J. Pollock(ARI) is another outfielder that has been playing big this season. He scored 45.016pts and that was his second 40pt week in the last 3 weeks. He’s up to 240.627pts on the season and he’s ranked 3rd for outfielders behind only Harper & Trout.

C Catching numbers were down from last week but Derek Norris(SDP) was the top dog with 24.772pts. He’s had back to back 20+ point weeks and has been very consistent with only two weeks in single digits. He’s been so consistent that he’s moved up to third in scoring for catchers with 176.31pts. Wilin Rosario(MIN) was literally a fraction behind Norris as he scored 24.715pts. Coming into this week, he had only appeared 4 times with 20pts on the season. I guess you can call this a breakout week as his point total is now at 44.595pts on the season.

SP Chris Archer(LAA) had a big week as he scored 41.25pts. It was the top pitching performance and it was also the 8th best score of the week. With the 41pt game, that launched Archer to the top pitching spot of the season with 157pts as he lept past King Felix & Scherzer. Another young arm, Gerrit Cole(SDP) also had big week as he scored 32.5pts. It was his first time over 30pts this season and the second time he surpassed 20pts. Cole is ranked 4th for SP’s with 142.5pts and is behind all the guys listed above.

RP Mark Melancon(CHC) hasn’t exaclty been blowing the barn doors off the hinges this season but he did have the best RP week with 26.5pts. He was only 1 of 2 RP’s to reach 20pts this week. He’s also raised his point total to 93.75pts on the season. The big week did move him into the Top 10 for RP points as he is now sitting 8th. Trevor Rosenthal(STL) was the other 20pt RP with 21.75pts. This was also his 1st 20pt week of the season as his previous season best was 18.25pts in Week #3. Rosenthal now has 122pts on the season and is ranked 2nd for RP’s as he’s right behind Andrew Miller. He has a chance to pass him this week as Miller is on the DL.

3 Stars Real Deal Dynasty Baseball Week #8

Finally!  Josh Donaldson can see his name at the top of the leaderboard with 75.413pts in Week #8.
Finally! Josh Donaldson can see his name at the top of the leaderboard with 75.413pts in Week #8.

 

Week #8 is done and the Tampa Bay Rays are still sitting atop the Real Deal with the league’s best record. In the AL East, they have become the first team to reach 30 wins as they are at 30-6. The are holding a 3 game lead over the Boston Red Sox who are at 27-9. In the NL Central, the Milwaukee Brewers still share the 2nd best record at 28-8 and hold a 4 game lead over the Chicago Cubs at 24-12. The Brewers share the record with the New York Mets, also at 28-8. They hold a bit larger lead over their 2nd place foe, the Miami Marlins. The Marlins are at 21-15 and sit 7 games back. The Houston Astros are the last remaining single digit loss team at 27-9 and sit atop the AL West. They hold a 4 game lead over the Texas Rangers who are at 23-13. The NL West is the most impressive of them all. The Arizona Diamondbacks are in 1st place with a 26-10 record but only hold a 1 game lead over the San Diego Padres which are at 25-11. That’s not the impressive part. Impressively, all 5 teams are currently above the .500 mark. The last place San Francisco Giants are even holding a 19-17 record. The lowest winning percentage for a 1st place team is in the AL Central and belongs to the Kansas City Royals at 24-12. 1 game back are the Minnesota Twins at 23-13. A tight 3 team race has the Detroit Tigers at 22-14 and only 2 games back.

1B Once again, Paul Goldschmidt(ARI) finds his name on the 3 Star list with. This week, he has the 3rd best score with 49.039pts. He’s also the top scorer the league with 282.564pts. He’s been on a hot streak having scored over 25pts a week for the past 5 weeks. This is also the 3rd time this season he has scored over 40pts as this was his best week. Chris Davis(SDP) exploded with 44.477pts. I’d consider that an explosion given the fact that he has only scored 35.44pts in the past 4 weeks.

2B had the same 3 players as last week, but just in a different order. However, don’t Panik. I have it all organized and Joe Panik(SFG) led the way this week with 39.524pts. He was the 3rd Star last week, and he must have liked it so much, he jumped up to the top spot this week. Starting to score consistently, he now has 166pts on the season & is ranked 7th for 2B. Jason Kipnis(SDP) sits in the 2nd slot for the 2nd week in a row with 33.079pts. That type of consistency has him ranked as the top 2B in Real Deal with 229pts on the season.

3B There’s Donald Duck. There’s Donald Trump. There’s Donald Son, Josh that is. Josh Donaldson(TOR) led the entire league with a monster 75.413pt week. He’s only scored under 20pts twice this season and this week definitely makes up for it. He’s sitting with 259.459pts for the season and he has vaulted up to 2nd in season points behind Goldschmidt. 3B was a solid position this week as Todd Frazier(HOU) scored 58.964pts. It was the second highest point total of the week. Of course, Donaldson is the top scoring 3B in the league. Can you name the 3B right behind him? Nope, it’s not Arenado, Carpenter, or Machado. It’s Todd Frazier! He has 237.93pts on the season as him and Donaldson are the only 3B to have over 200pts on the season.

SS Jhonny Peralta(BAL) had his best week of the season with 40.996pts. Not that he’s been terrible the year. With his 40pt week, he moved up to the top spot as the leading SS with 187.25pts on the season. Now that he’s the top name on the leaderboard, maybe he’ll consider swapping the “O” and “H” in his first name so I don’t constantly have to double-check my spelling to make sure his name is correct. Hanley Ramirez(MIL) has the 2nd best score of the week at SS with 29.869pts. He’s also ranked 2nd for SS in season points as he sitting with 163.643pts in 8 weeks.

OF Lucas Duda(LAD) led the way with 46.446pts. I know what you’re all screaming, Duda is a 1B! Well, I remembered him as a OF and that must have been how I listed him. He did play 1 game there last year. Anyway, I’ve switched his position listing from here on out, but I may has well give him his due this week. He still would’ve been a 3 Star even at 1B, so I’ll let this week slip by. Besides, there was no other OF near 40pts, so who would’ve represented? In the #2 slot was A.J. Pollock(ARI). He scored 37.8pts this week and had another big week last week with 49pts. The 86pts he’s scored the past 2 weeks has moved him up to 6th for OF with 195pts on the season.

C Catcher usually isn’t a high scoring position but that doesn’t bother Brian McCann(SFG). He has the 5th highest score of the week as he scored 45.232pts this week. Prior to this week, he hadn’t even scored 30pts, but he’s been very consistent and has 151.987pts on the week and that has him ranked 4th for catchers. Evan Gattis(TB) followed up his 40pt week with 34.81pts this week. That pushed him up to 135.586pts on the season and he is now ranked 6th for catchers. Not bad after scoring only 10.75pts in the first 3 weeks of the season.

SP Dallas Keuchel(SFG) had his best week of the season with 36.75pts. It’s not like he’s been having a rough year. He has 128.25pts on the season. Did you even realize that he’s ranked 3rd for SP’s in points this year? Yep, right behind Scherzer & King Felix. He’s also way ahead of guys like Kershaw & Price in season points. Dallas has been right up there in points week after week. Carlos Martinez(CIN) had the 2nd best score with 32.5pts. At least he was with the Reds when he scored his points as he was just recently traded. Martinez has been up and down this season and only had 54pts coming into the week. However, his weekly point totals have gone up in each of the past 3 weeks.

RP Adam Warren(TB) was the top RP with 19pts this week. He virtually came out of no-where with a break out week. He only had 15pts on the season coming into the week and only played once in the last 3 weeks. He hadn’t even hit 10pts in any week until now. He definitely got off to a slow start this season as he only had 5.75pts after the first 4 weeks. Maybe we’ll start seeing more of his name after this week. He
