It's a little known fact that Jonathan Lucroy has telekinetic powers.
We're down to five weeks left in the regular season. In Week 19, it was AcesHigh who held on from a strong start to take the week. It broke up a long streak of weeks that had been dominated by aaronetc and icecreamman, who have been dominating the competition so far. Of course, even the weekly win by AcesHigh was not enough to make much of a dent in icecreamman's overall lead, though it has shrunk a little.
Time to move on to Week 20. It's another visit to Chicago, and it's a four-game series. That's four chances to score some points, get some entries into the prize drawing, and make an impact in the standings.
