AvB Update 10: Plummet of the Abes

A week after a big win, the Abes came crashing back to reality, leaving Abes Nation confused, hurt, and in need of hope. The Abes wasted a relative masterpiece from Edwin Jackson (only 3 ER allowed) and came up with season-worst showings in four of five hitting categories. Their offense was so non-existent that Grady Little has started taking notes.

The Babes, on the other hand, had one of their best offensive weeks on record. Carl Crawford continued his well-rounded stat accumulation (0.353, HR, 10R, 7RBI, 3SB) and becomes the 1st 3-time Player of the Week recipient.

Bad week, Abes. But as one in your ranks once advised, don't stop thinking about tomorrow...

Was that President Lindsay Buckingham, or President John McVie? I can't quite remember.

Huh?? Those two were never president. I was referring to President Nicks.
