MLB Fantasy Week 1 Results

After a week of learning the ropes and making several trades, I managed to lose my head-to-head matchup by only 3 points! Not bad for my first week of fantasy baseball ever. Here's the new roster, since you've been waiting breathlessly for news, gnawing on your cuticles and twitching.

C: Jason Varitek (Bos)
1B: David Ortiz (Bos)
2B: Kazuo Matsui (Hou)
3B: Kevin Youkilis (Bos)
SS: Derek Jeter (NYY)
OF: Hideki Matsui (NYY)
OF: Kosuke Fukudome (ChC)
Util: Nick Swisher (CWS)
BN: Ryan Zimmerman (Was)
DL: Howie Kendrick (LAA)
SP: Derek Lowe (LAD)
SP: Yovani Gallardo (Mil)
SP: Aaron Harang (Cin)
RP: Eric Gagne (Mil)
RP: Troy Percival (TB)
P: Todd Wellemeyer (StL)
BN: Matt Cain (SF)
BN: Chien-Ming Wang (NYY)
BN: Joba Chamberlain (NYY)

And, here are the final numbers for week 1:
40 Runs
5 Home Runs
35 RBIs
4 Stolen Bases
.290 Batting Average
.429 Slugging
37.2 Innings Pitched
1 Win
3 Saves
31 Strikeouts
6.21 ERA (Wang and Cain both got crushed)
1.57 WHIP

OK, so not the best numbers in the world. But at this point, I'm happy just to know what things like WHIP mean. When you're way on the bottom, there's nowhere to go but up!
