Yeah, Soler killed me, too. ARod was who I was really leaning towards otherwise, and I'm kicking myself over that right now.

I only had 237 total HR last year, and now 300 this year (which puts me far from the top). Guess HR's are up this year

Just SIX days remain in the regular season! Will we have our first repeat champion? The difference between first and second place is just THREE home runs!

I'm just happy I went from last place during the first standings being posted, to a respectable third place finish; my best in several years.

at least it didn't come down to the "whoever posted their team first" tiebreaker, because that would have HURT. i guess i can be sneaky's bridesmaid for one more year. thanks, SP!

Were there more HR's hit in MLB this year or did most of the predictable guys hit them and were clustered??? Or are we as a group just better at identifying Dongsmith's being exposed to our glorious team????
