JMurl's Craft Beer of the Week and Fantasy Focus
JMurl's Craft Brew of the Week
Flower Power IPA
Brewed by: Ithaca Beer Company/Ithaca, NY
Style: American India Pale Ale
Pours a bright wheat orange color with a thick creamy head....aromas reek of delicious hoppiness, lemon, orange, and citrus with some pine...smooth mouth medium light body with a HUGE excellent bitter finish...get a sense of sweet malt but always has big hop backbone...5 out of 5 burps
5 burps- The cream of the crop...your taste buds will thank you
4 burps- Good brew, but not the crème de la crème that would get 5 burps
3 burps- Okay, but “I'm not a big fan” and its got alcohol in it, so I'll drink it
2 burps- “Do you have any Bud Light instead of this?”
1 burp- This brew sucks so bad, it make you want to run to the closest AA meeting
Justin Turner (Mets-3B) ...Hit .342 with 20 RBIs and 9 runs scored in the month of May...only owned in 34% of Yahoo leagues....snatch him up if he is still available....faces Milwaukee and Pittsburgh this week...
Corey Paterson (Blue Jays-OF) …Batting .326 in his last 10 games with 3 dingers and 8 RBIs...faces the Royals this week and they have the second-to-worst team ERA in the majors of 4.63 and are worst in the majors in runs allowed (303)...owned in only 39% of Yahoo leagues...
Dillon Gee (Mets-SP) ...Has been relatively effective in his last three starts, working 20.2 innings with a 3.05 ERA and earning the W in all three starts...also has 33 strikeouts in 47 innings this year...only owned in 25% of Yahoo leagues...
Dan Uggla (Braves-2B) ...Batted .202 in April and .160 in May with only 2 HR's...why is he still on your roster???...pickup Danny Espinosa who plays 2B for the Nationals... he batting .412 over his last five games, and leads all second baseman with 8 home runs since May 1....
Hanley Rameriez(Marlins-SS) ...the once “fantasy stud” is more like a “fantasy dud” this season batting .210 with only 4 HR's...has only 8 hits in his last ten games and has batted in a whopping 3 runs in that same time period...
Jon Lester (Red Sox-SP) ...has given up four or more runs in four of his past five starts, compiling a 5.50 ERA in the month of May. The Boston ace was also torched for seven runs off of eight hits and four walks in his most recent outing against the White Sox where he only lasted 5 2/3 innings...
