The Hungry Boars, led by Fish Striper Plaz, have taken the lead over willmueller's LeBron Bats Cleanup? team. Those Hungry Boars have been led by a balanced attack and have benefited from Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Jean Segura's breakout campaign thus far. Segura is batting .333/.381/.537 (.391 wOBA) and as a result is 13th in the league among position players in points with 241. In fact, the Boars' two best hitters are at the scarcest positions in the game, as Segura and Yadier Molina at catcher lead the way for their team.

Of course, it also helps to have Clayton Kershaw (290.33 points) and Hyun-Jin Ryu (226.33) to help out on the other side.

Those forces are battling against LeBron Bats Cleanup? and the team's force of four 200-point starers, led by the leader Adam Wainwright (309.33 points). Wainwright, Mat Latos, Cliff Lee, and Patrick Corbin are leading the charge to take back the league lead.

Over at fifth place, I'm sitting there. My team finally got Brian McCann back from injury, and Zack Greinke's return seems imminent as he pitched a rehab start already. Despite a reliable offensive effort, the pitching staff beyond Jordan Zimmermann (270 points) and Trevor Cahill (206 points) has been mediocre and difficult to find. My team is in need of help in that department and at shortstop.
