Jewish Fantasy Baseball Update: Week 2
The Major League Jews suffered their first loss of the season, unable to overcome the Jose Reyes and Magglio Ordonez-led "Statistics" team (what's with that name? Must be coached by a math teacher.) But the chosen team did boast some fine performances: Lance Berkman went 8 for 25 with 3 homeruns, 8 R, 6 RBI and 6 walks, and David Newhan hit his first homer of the year for the Mets. Unfortunately, former Jewish-All-American David Eckstein remains mired in a slump.
Berkman was impressive, but he usually is. This week's Adam's Life Sluggin' Semite of the Week Award goes to a fine young boychik who stepped up to make this week's contest close. This week, we honor Boston's Kevin Youkilis, who went 11 for 21 with 4 doubles, a homer, 4 runs, 6 RBI, and 2 walks.
