    I was the worst team in the league this year. No doubt.

    But I could end up in seventh place. Thee and I are in a very close match. If I pull ahead tomorrow I will end up At least in eighth place. To me, that is just dumb. To me the playoffs make a mockery of the regular season.

    The irony of Roy Halladay destroying my playoff run is too much.

    Never trust a Phillie. It's Darth's fault.

    Uggh. I can't believe THAT happened. :'( I wasn't watching very closely but I thought the sandwiches were way out in front.

    But Wiggles tried Telling you guys that Halladay was a worthless bum!!

    You just never know how things will work out. Random.

    So before today's games are played, I have the numbers to be winning the championship, but I am content with beating Nemo, both of us improving on our regular season results.

    Thanks to everyone for a great fantasy baseball season....even Nemo.

    This was a very competitive league. All of the managers stuck with their team for the entire season. This is very rare, especially in a sport that goes as LONG as baseball does. Every team was still in a position to make the playoffs all the way up until the last week or two.

    Congrats to Junior on winning the championship (even though he will probably not read this). He really works hard at this, doing research, mock drafts, analyzing statistics with spreadsheets, etc. I'm hoping there is some sort of career that is comparable to this type of work (that pays U.S. dollars).

    Anyway, I hope everyone enjoyed the season as much as I did. Thanks!

    Congrats on your 9th place finish. You needed a strong finish to avoid last place. You should have some nice momentum heading into the 2013 season.

    Congrats to Junior. I really wanted to beat him for his smarmy comment in our last matchup. But he won it with a great team, so kudos is due.

    You easily could have beaten him with a couple of breaks. I wonder where he gets that smarminess from.

    If you remember correctly, my team was in last place after the first month or so. My team climbed all the way to 3rd place. :eyebrows:

    Very true. My point was if the trade was lopsided as Nemo implied, then why did my team move up 7 spots in the standings?

    I think trades are overrated. My one trade did little to help me. As usual, I was great in free agency, and that's where most of my gains came from.
