The COMC Office Pack Battle League is now four weeks into it’s inaugural season and trends are starting to take form. Of course, it’s still very early in the season, and no team is too far out of the hunt to be counted out.
If you’re not familiar with our scoring system or the rules of our league, you can read our introductory blog here. If you missed our first update and want to take a look at how things got underway through the first two weeks of the season click here.
A big congratulations to Sean Manaea for his 10-strikeout no hit performance against the Boston Red Sox in Week 4!
In the overall league standings through four weeks, Bob has emerged as the front-runner with 10 total points. Over the past two weeks, he’s secured 8 points and has leapfrogged the field after sitting in 17th place after the first two weeks of the season. The rest of the field remains tightly packed, with only three points separating 10th place from 1st place.
Home Run King Standings:
No clear leader has emerged in the Home Run King standings as a four-way tie exists at the top with Brandon, James, Bob and Tad each with five points. Bob took the ‘w’ in the HR category in week 3 with six home runs and Tad claimed top honors in week 4 with five homers.
Hit King Standings:
Despite adding no points from the hits category over the past two weeks, Kevin’s fast start with five points through the first two weeks was enough to keep him in the lead. The field is tightly closing in however as David sits in second with four points. Four teams tied with 13 hits each in week 3 to claim 1st place points while Jeff took the victory in hits in week 4 with a whopping 21 hits.
Strikeout King Standings:
Our five-way tie from the previous update has become just a two-way tie as Tim and Jeremy top the leader board with four points each. Dylan blazed past the competition in week 3 with 23 strike outs, while Bob followed up in week 4 with an 18-strikeout performance that was good for the top spot.
Week 3 Results (April 12th – 18th )
In week 3 action, Bob begun his march to the top of the leader board by scoring top points in the home run category with six home runs with his high risk high reward decision to play two Charlie Blackmon cards in the home run stat. A four-way tie at hits this week at 13 total hits yielded first place points distributed liberally. Dylan’s 23 strike outs from Gerrit Cole and Julio Teheran were enough to cement a strong first place finish.
HR Points: Bob (3), Sean (2), Jeff (1), David (1), Kevin (1), Jade (1)
Hits Points: Jeremy (3), Geoff (3), Tim (3), David (3), Dieter (2), Angela (2), Tad (2), Chris (1)
K’s Points: Dylan (3), Brian (2), Jeremy (1)
Week 4 Results (April 19th – 25th )
Bob followed up his three-point week 3 with a five point week 4 effort. Bob took first in Strikeouts with 18 K’s thanks to Gerrit Cole (is that name looking familiar yet?) and Sean Manaea and put up a second-place effort in hits coming just three hits short of the 21 hits acquired by category winner Jeff. Tad reigned supreme in the home run category with 5 on the bats of second-year studs Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger.
HR Points: Tad (3), James (2), Brandon (2), Dylan (1), David (1), Sean (1), Jeff (1), Kevin (1)
Hits Points: Jeff (3), Bob (2), Sean (1)
