I’m not one to brag, but September is upon us and I am on top of my fantasy league. I seem to have cornered the market on every stat except for home runs. However, I have even made some progress in that category with free agent pickups like Chris Carter, Lucas Duda, and Mike Napoli. I currently have 56 more saves than the team second in that category. I tend to stock up on closers assuming that a few will be busts. The only bust was Ernesto Frieri. And boy, was he a bust. How did the Angels get Jason Grilli for this guy? I have had a few injuries lately. Joe Mauer was hurt for a while. Miguel Montero became the starter, while I picked up Kurt Suzuki as for backup. Yes, Mauer is still eligible at catcher. Paul Goldschmidt has been shelved for a while. But my power trio of Carter, Duda, and Napoli have been good replacements. I recently dumped Anibal Sanchez who has been on the DL. My thinking is that if he comes back, it will only be for 3 or 4 starts anyway. I acquired Chris Archer to replace him. Archer has had a heck of a season. He is a relatively unknown young player who should be around for many years to come. In sum, it’s looking good. But like I said, I’m not one to brag.
