The plan: Starters go 7 or 8 every night, and Lugo cleans up, every day, until he blows out his arm. I'm holding out hope for no other reason than to be able to troll that "New York Mess" guy if he ever shows back up. I predict he'll show up just as soon as the Mets are officially eliminated, because that's how he rolls.
Wrong again, just as you've been wrong about me trolling, or trying to be clever, or wanting to gain popularity among the fanatics. You've been wrong about it all, time and again. It's actually quite impressive how wrong you've been for so long.
You're also wrong about the Mess. The franchise is dysfunctional from the top down, and it's put an inferior product on the field. Maybe the agent-turned-GM will stop giving sweetheart deals to ex-clients or have the good sense not to barter away the future, but his first year has set a bad tone. I hope the Mess' make the wild card, but not as much as I want someone to clear out the rot and set the franchise straight.
You've misjudged my character, my intentions, my behaviors, and the New York Mess. Oh, and your trolling sucks. I had thought you were just stupid, but it turns out you are stupid and a dick.
I'm just being honest, because that's how I roll.
Trying to reverse jinx himself like a true gambler
If the Mets can't catch up, which isn't looking good at this point, I'd be in favor of that. Screw the Nats. (That said, it would be amusing to see them lose yet another divisional series. The Dodgers would likely steamroll them.)I just need the Cubs and Brewers to get them wildcard spots. Don't let me down, Meatballs!
Also, Mychal Givens is trash.
It was fun, even though I sucked. Started to get the hang of it a bit later in the season.GAF Fantasy Baseball Semifinals are complete!
Greyshark Attack vs. Bear Backs: Story of my fantasy career, great regular season only to flame out in the playoffs. I checked and the last time my team hit less than 10 HRs was way back in Week 11. Could not overcome the late injuries to the squad (and one relief pitcher that turned out to be a pedo), and my ill-advised SP pickups cratered my ERA/WHIP for the week. Great job to the
NationalsBear Backs, and good luck in the finals Musky_Cheese .
JareBear Team vs. Steinbenner ( R Rock And Roll ) Steinbenner never gave up after Jarebear surged to an early lead, but his team's final push could not quite overcome the outstanding performance from JareBear's pitching staff. Great weeks from both teams, but Jarebear heads to the final.
On to the championship!
Bear Backs vs. Jarebear team ( JareBear: Remastered ): Just like with the semifinal matchup, this will come down to how well the Nationals do. The Bear Backs have to overcome the loss of Ketel Marte and their other two non-Nationals are hurt as well in Trey Mancini and Max Muncy, both solid hitters. But none of it will matter if the Nationals can average 7+ runs a game over the week. And no amount of streaming will save you against a Nationals pitching staff that puts up a 2.00 ERA/1.00 WHIP as they have the talent to make happen as well. Should be interesting to see how Jare will strategize against it (other than the classic reverse jinx).
Good luck to both teams and hope you all ( prag16 , TrainedRage , DeepEnigma , synchronicity ) had fun this season, I know I did!
