Mover and Shaker - Week 2

It's unfortunate that league offices has not kept any record books on the number of weekly transactions and trades, though even without it, it's not difficult to assume that this week broke a record. The number of bodies and picks that swapped teams, or from free agency/waivers to teams this week, was quite incredible: 16 trades involving 45 players and 60+ player adds since last Saturday. That is a lot.

It's too early to say what all this movement will do in the future, but it appears the league is tightening up in rank positions already (as it was assumed that this year parity would be high). Last Sunday, the highest point total for the team on top was Porter's Penguins' 222, and the lowest was King FlameHeads' 74. The KF still has the lowest this week, but it's 10 points higher at 84, and the highest rank - now a tie between Milltown Moose and FIGJAM - is at 179 points. It's also interesting to note that teams 1 through 13 are only 43 points away from each other, and this includes two separate tied positions (at 1 and 6). Last years champ No Homers and perennial bottom dweller Zig Zag Zambonies sit with King FlameHeads in the league depths, at least 20 points out of 13th.

In Moving and Shaking we have the team commanded by GM of the Year last year jumping from 13th overall to 6th with his 44 point gain. Roly Snipes beat out The InTIMidators by just 3.5 points to be crowned this weeks award winner. With this win, as always, he gets a free transactions dropping him from 7 used to 6.
