Seattle: Home of the Largest Bandwagon

     Greetings from the Emerald City! Tough way to start the day. I was in flight during the first series of day games today. So who ever I picedk in those games weren't getting jettisoned before they destroy the monster week that I've been having. I decided to start with Nick Swisher, Giancarlo Stanton, Alexi Ramirez, Corey Kluber, Wil Myers, Adrian Gonzalez, Wild Horse, Ed Encarnacion and Adeny Hechevarria. I had about +4584 for the week #71 for the Angels and Overall #2035. I hoped that I could break top 50 this week for the Angels but that seems to be a pipe dream since started the day 1,500 behind the pack. I only need 500 pts to reach pts level 5, which at this point seems attainable. I finally hit the 10% collected mark with my purchase this morning. With only my daily $1000 coins I picked up a 5 pack and pulled a four duplicates and a UC that will remain nameless. By default, that makes him my morning pull of the day.

     Another issue that had me worrying about today's tally was the lack of pitchers I had set today compared to the last few. Today, I had Darvish Illustrated, Kluber Rare and Lohse Scarce already in the front of my mind. Darvish put me in a tough spot being that he's pitching against my Halo's and if he has a monster game, that means my real life team suffers. I was also not feeling too well as I turned off my phone seeing Kluber putting up a -23 pts after the first inning. When I landed, I was officially in a new dimension. Kluber K'd thirteen in eight innings but unfortunately didn't get the win. Lohse and Darvish had solid games getting me about 160 pts between the both. Thankfully, I kept scrolling down and noticed Wade Miley was pitching which prompted me to drop his scarce card in and it pulled +209 pts. This was one of the main reasons I broke the 5k mark and also solidified my level five points award.

     Before I forget! Special shout out to a couple of recent pulls. Wil Myers UC kicked in +102 pts with an in the park homer. The big bat was Giancarlo Stanton Scarce with +187 pts. Hitting triple digits seems to be a tough benchmark for the offensive players. I looked up the common card for Stanton and that hit triple digits on it's own which is really hard. All in all, this was a great day for hitters as well as pitchers.

     I ended the week making some great strides. I'm The Angels #65 and I'm #1949 overall for the week which is a big jump from #162 & #4,045. I smell yet another Indigo foam finger. I'd like to blame my slow Monday and Tuesday but I averaged about 800 pts a day, and truth be told, I did not have 800 pts days on Monday and Tuesday.

     Twittering will commence now! Yea, I got a Twitter account to help the blogging therapy. @buntacvoyag is my handle. I will see how micro blogging treats me. I had a personal Twitter account that is less voice reaching out to the rest of the world and more of a platform for stalking comedians.

Get Well Soon Hyun-Jin Ryu! Can't wait to drop you in the line up again soon.

Tomorrow, I will be back in the air headed south during prime game times.
