Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

Fantasy Baseball Update - Friday

Gavin will return from a brief hiatus tomorrow, so it's time for me to give the update of the battle between my Omnimedia Corp. and Gavin's Brannigan's Love.

Omnimedia Corp. actually lengthened their lead, now winning 8-3. Here are some of the highlights:

Carlos Silva - 1 win, 1 complete game (yes!), 2 K's (only 2 in 9 innings?), 2.00 ERA, 1.00 WHIP
Eric Chavez - 2/4, 3 runs, 1 K, 3 bases
Jim Edmonds - 2/3, 2 runs, 3 bases
Jim Thome - 1/4, 1 run, 1 RBI, 4 bases

Gavin (who had a terrible day, so not many highlights):
Troy Glaus - 2/4, 1 run, 2 RBI, 1 K, 6 bases
Luis Gonzalez - 2/5, 1 run, 1 RBI, 2 bases
Jay Gibbons - 1/4, 1 base

Omnimedia Corp is winning in runs (by 11), SB (by 4), total bases (by 3), OBP, CG (by 1), saves (by 2), team ERA, and team WHIP
Brannigan's Love is winning in RBI (by 1), K's by hitters (by 6), and K's by pitchers (by 9)

Things to look for today:
Only one start by either team - Colin has Jon Lieber pitching against the Red Sox (ouch)
The Red Sox will be huge - Manny Ramirez against David Ortiz. Also check out Vladimer Guerrero for Gavin and a finally healthy Jim Edmonds for Colin. Will interleague play make a difference?
