Here are the results from week 18, followed by a recipe for Grilled Jamaican Jerk Tilapia packs.




R.A. Dickey was extremely sharp with his knuckleball in his first start of the week Monday night in Seattle. Dickey’s pitches were dancing as he struck out five over 7 2/3 outstanding innings in the win. He allowed just one earned run — coming on a Justin Smoak seventh-inning solo homer — on eight hits and two walks spanning 7 2/3 frames. He threw 104 pitches and lowered his ERA to 4.49 in the process. In his second start of the week against the Athletics from Rogers Centre on Sunday afternoon, when it was all said and done, Dickey walked away with a no-decision on the outing. He gave up a Josh Donaldson RBI single and Brandon Moss two-run home run in the sixth inning of the game. That was all the runs he’d allow as he left the game tied at three runs apiece for the no-decision. Dickey gave up six hits and two walks and struck out six over seven innings in the quality start. Dickey, who threw 109 pitches on the outing, lowered is ERA further to 4.46 and has a 9-11 record. He’s given up just four earned runs over his last three starts spanning 20 2/3 innings with 14 Ks.



Mike Napoli did not get the start last Wednesday at Houston as manager John Farrell wanted to keep him off his feet for some rest, the Boston Globe reports. That said, Farrell also had some interesting comments regarding Napoli’s slump at the plate. “That’s something I need to talk with Mike before we get into it any further,” Farrell said when asked if he’d consider moving Napoli lower in the lineup. “Right now, he’s grinding and as a result I think the swing has gotten a little bit longer at times and that’s where you see him having to commit earlier to above-average velocity. Does that make him susceptible to a bigger strike zone? Possibly. These are the thing that are being addressed daily and certainly with the early work [Wednesday].” Napoli had just three hits in week 18.



Originally I called the recommendation to bench Dustin Ackley last week a miss, but changed my mind when I looked at the his stats for the week. He just didn’t do enough to with his 6 hits to help your team.



We recommended you bench Everth Cabrera for this week and you probably should have dropped him also, as he began to serve his 50-game suspenion for using PEDs resulting in no stats.



Wil Myers didn’t have a stellar week and may have been better served on your bench. He got on base and that counts for something. But just like with ackley, I changed my mind with wil. He didn’t do enough with his 5 hits to help your team win and the recommendation to start him was a miss.



Kendrys Morales had the same amount of hits as Wil, but with more ABs lowering you team average in the process, We recommended you start him and missed on that one also.



This one is tough, because the theme going is what did you do with your hits? Chris Johnson had 4 in week 18. Half of them accounted for 5 RBIs, a HR and a double. He was more of a HIT than the other 2 players we recommended so while that is something, it’s not enough to be considered a good pick.
