So let’s see: The four big-league teams playing Monday combined for 42 runs. Up for grabs were 13 home runs (split among 12 players) and even 5 steals. Of 40 batters, 32 got at least one hit, and 20 got at least one RBI.
In other words, it was a day on which it would be hard for a fantasy team to slip into the negatives… unless the only player whom you trotted out was one David Thomas Bush:
IP ER BB HB K Pts === == == == == ==== Bush 3.1 8 2 2 2 -5.7
As winner Joshua Lapo notes, Bush’s score would have been even lower if the Brewers hadn’t spared him the “L.”
For his effort, Josh wins a year’s subscription to Heater Magazine. Josh is now also the current season leader in Worst Mondays; if he can hold that title until the end of the season, he will get a free copy of the 2010 Graphical Player, coming out in December.
Thanks to everyone who entered. Worse luck next week!
