Week 1 Recap - Steamed Hams (SH) vs IHATEYOUALL (IHYA)

Batting: The categories were split 3-3 with Steals (IHYA 3-2) being the only tight one by week's end. IHYA's team got off to a hot start, but came crashing down the last 3 days as her OPS decreased by more than 100 points. Perhaps Grady Sizemore not playing had something to do with this. SH got across the board production in RBI and Runs as no one had more than 3 ex. Vlad whereas IHYA relied mainly on 3 players, mentioned below, for most of her output.

SH--Guerrero, Ichiro (in only 4 games)
IHYA--McCann, Sizemore, Renteria

SH--Andruw Jones (3-23, 0 HR), Johjima (1-9), Teixeira (4-16, 0 HR)
IHYA--Pujols, Roberts, Young (10-67, 1 HR, 4 RBI)

Pitching: SH had 13 starts and no pitcher gave up more than 3 ER (ex. Harang 5 ER in 5 2/3 IP on Sat), yet I still managed to lose ERA/WHIP due to my closers. Terrible outings from Julio (1/3 IP, 3 ER, 6 H+BB) and Ray (2/3 IP, 4 ER, 3 H+BB) raised my ERA & WHIP from 2.45/1.17 to 3.16/1.28. IHYA pitching was either feast (Hamels, Hernandez, Santana, 1 of Lowe's outings) or famine (Carpenter, Lowe's other outing, Petitte). Incredibly high number of walks from Olsen, Verlander, and Haren (who had only 4 K's). IHYA picked up 4 saves from Salomon Torres. Yes, the absolute last closer taken in the draft outsaved 4 teams in the league by himself. I pulled ahead of IHYA in Wins & K's by sheer volume of 27 more IP, but lost all the ratios and saves as mentioned above.

SH--Harang, Haren (although no Wins), Wainwright
IHYA--Hamels, Hernandez, Torres

SH--Julio!!!, Olsen (he got 2 wins, but his WHIP and K/BB ratio were awful)
