We're approaching the playoff push in the Baseball Daily Media Experts League! Here is a look at the league standings after Week 6:

 
 

Highlights from Week 6:

  • Chad Finn (Hack Finns) leads the league in wins (83) with but Doug Glanville's (Teaneck Steel Drums) squad has the highest run differential at +139.
  • Finn does it on both sides of the plate, as his pitchers have a lockdown week 6. He leads in run suppression by a huge margin.
  • Division leaders: WEST: Finn (Hack Finns),  CENTRAL: Doug Glanville (Teaneck Steel Drums), EAST: Jon Miller (Bora Bora Lagoon)
  • HR Leaders: Mark Reynolds (Jared Diamond) - 42, Giancarlo Stanton (Marc Stein) - 40, Mike Trout (also Stein!) - 39, Aaron Judge (Jon Miller) - 38
  • RBI Leader: Zimmerman (Glanville) - 100
  • BA Leader: Mike Trout (Stein) - .323
  • Notable pitching performances: Ervin Santana (Finn) - 14-4, 2.00 ERA, 0.99 WHIP; Clayton Kershaw (Joe Sheehan) - 11-6, 2.16 ERA, 1.00 WHIP; Gerrit Cole (Will Leitch) - 10-7, 2.79 ERA, 1.22 WHIP; Luis Severino (Jesse Spector) - 10-11, 2.88 ERA, 1.06 WHIP
  • Glanville reclaims the team home run lead with 208. Jared Diamond is close behind with 203, as he remains in the wild card race.
  • As mentioned, Chad Finn's pitchers absolutely locked it down this week. Their team ERA drops to 3.12 as he grows his division lead. 
  • Finn is riding an 8-game win streak en route to a 22 (!) game division lead...looking very solid to clinch our first playoff berth!
  • Bud Norris pitches a one-hit gem for Will Leitch, as Leitch shuts Steve Gardner out twice in three games. 
  • In the only other real negative instance for Gardner this week (he has been on fire), he loses a slugfest against Marc Stein by a score of 14-12, but the champ maintains a strong position on the wild card spot. 
  • Three teams are firmly leading their division and six more are in play for the wild card...don't miss a moment over the next two weeks leading up to the postseason!
