IFB Week 3 Review and Week 4 Preview

Week 3 in the Illinois Fantasy Baseball League saw more dominating performances than in Week 2, with more blow-out victories.  Contenders for the title are starting to emerge, and division races are beginning to heat up.  Here’s a look at what happened in Week 3…

First, a look at the results…

  • The Chosen People defeats FernandoVinasGoatee, 9-2
  • Funky Cold Molina defeats South Side Cubs Fan, 7-5
  • SouthSideSluggers defeats Good Wood Gang, 7-4
  • PujolsalwaysCardinal defeats Muse Academy Muses, 10-2
  • Quiet TheRiot defeats Boo Boo Cubs, 7-4
  • Most Daring defeats Quincy Dirtbags, 7-3
  • Bad News Bears defeats Triple Crown 9-2
  • All Balls No Strikes ties NIU Huskies, 6-6

And now a look at the updated standings…

Division races are still tight after 3 weeks of the season.  The biggest lead is in the Reagan, with South Side Cubs Fan holding a 5.5 game lead over Good Wood Gang.  The next biggest lead is All Balls No Strikes in the Obama Division holding a 4.5 game lead over NIU Huskies.  PujolsalwaysCardinal holds a 1.5 game lead over SouthSideSluggers in the Grant, and Quiet TheRiot holds a 1 game lead over Boo Boo Cubs in the Lincoln.

The overall best record still goes to ABNS, but only by a half-game over Quiet TheRiot, followed by PujolsalwaysCardinal only a game back.

For the first time this year, here’s a look at which division is outpacing everyone else…

  1. Grant – 79-61-4 (.563)
  2. Lincoln – 71-63-10 (.528)
  3. Obama – 67-74-3 (.476)
  4. Reagan – 61-80-3 (.434)

The standings should not be too much of a surprise.  Teams in the Grant Division currently occupy the 3rd, 6th, and 7th seeds, with that division’s last place team just on the outside in 9th.  That’s in contrast to the Reagan Division, where its leader has the 5th best record overall, and the rest are placed 12th, 13th, and 15th.  Still a lot of games to be played though.

And now here’s a look at the weekly awards:

  • Bugs Bunny Best Record – PujolsalwaysCardinal (10-2)
  • The Simpsons Runs Leader – Most Daring (44)
  • Josie and the Pussycats Hits Leader – PujolsalwaysCardinal (67)
  • Homer Simpson Home Run Leader – Most Daring, Boo Boo Cubs, SouthSideSluggers (12)
  • Fat Albert RBI Leader – Most Daring (41)
  • Speedy Gonzalez Stolen Base Leader – Quincy Dirtbags, Bad News Bears (10)
  • Heather Average Leader – PujolsalwaysCardinal (.316)
  • Rainbow Dash Wins Leader – The Chosen People (6)
  • Timmy Turner Losses Leader – All Balls No Strikes, PujolsalwaysCardinal (1)
  • Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers Saves Leader – NIU Huskies (7)
  • Herbert Walks Leader – NIU Huskies (8)
  • Wile E. Coyote K’s Leader – The Chosen People (74)
  • Peppermint Patty ERA Leader – The Chosen People (2.21)

And to wrap up, here’s a Week 4 preview.  No divisional play is scheduled for the week:

  • FernandoVinasGoatee (11-23-2) vs. Bad News Bears (18-17-1)
  • South Side Cubs Fan (21-15-0) vs. Quiet TheRiot (21-12-3)
  • Good Wood Gang (15-20-1) vs. All Balls No Strikes (23-13-0)
  • Muse Academy Muses (14-22-0) vs. Quincy Dirtbags (12-22-2)
  • Boo Boo Cubs (20-13-3) vs. The Chosen People (18-15-3)
  • Most Daring (18-16-2) vs. SouthSideSluggers (20-15-1)
  • Triple Crown (9-25-2) vs. Funky Cold Molina (19-17-0)
  • NIU Huskies (17-19-0) vs. PujolsalwaysCardinal (22-14-0)

The Week 4 Match-up of the Week goes to South Side Cubs Fan taking on Quiet TheRiot.  This match-up features the Reagan Division leader and the Lincoln Division leader.  Quiet TheRiot holds a one game lead in the Lincoln, after an impressive 7-4 victory over the previous leader, Boo Boo Cubs, and is just a half-game out of the division lead.  South Side Cubs Fan struggled to a 7-5 defeat last week, but was able to increase their division lead by having the best record in a very rough week for the Reagan Division.

Other notable match-ups include Boo Boo Cubs vs. The Chosen People in a battle of teams off to good starts, and Most Daring vs. SouthSideSluggers in a match-up of teams trying to stay in the wild card and division races.

Good luck to everyone in Week 4!
