I was thumbing through some stats the other day and noticed that the A.L. is dominating the stat line during the month of June, specifically Texas and Boston. Texas is leading the majors in runs (140), hits (232) and RBIs (134). While Boston is leading the majors in HRs (29), total bases (374), extra base hits (94), batting average (.307), on-base percentage (.379) and slugging percentage (.509).
The pitchers for those two dominating offensive teams gain some added value, while the opposing pitchers' value decreases. While I will not list all of those pitchers below, it would be a good idea to keep the aforementioned stats in mind when setting your lineups this week.
Without further ado, let's roll into this week's planner.
