Welcome to the final waiver column of 2009. Hopefully you’re reading this as champion of your league, and if a suggestion or two from this column helped, so much the better! For myself, I won one league (a 16-team dynasty) finished runner-up in a couple more, but finally relinquished my H2HWS title after four straight years of success. C’est la vie …
Anyway, as we settle back to enjoy the post-season (once again without my beloved Mets, although at least this year I knew they were done well before the final day!), here’s a final review of the waiver wire selections from Tom and myself, picking up from where we left off (June 10th).
Unlike that column, there’s little point in including the Yahoo owned % now, as it’s totally irrelevant to any leagues! It will simply be my personal reflections on the picks we made — and the final scores may give you a hint as to which of us is the more reliable when it comes to decision-making in 2010!
And so we reach the end of the 2009 WWWW review! If you’ve got this far, no doubt you’ll be on tenterhooks to see which columnist ended up with the better record for recommendations, so without further ado, here it is, using the scoring system from the first half; namely, A=5 down to F=1:
|Chris||Points||First half points||TOTAL||Tom||Points||First half points||TOTAL|
So we have a result! Tom overturns a first half deficit to come roaring back in the second half (and that doesn’t even include the final week, excluded from these scores in order to keep the number of predictions even). The question is, did Tom perform a Twins-esque late season surge? Or did I suffer a Tiger-like collapse? Either way, Tom has pogoed his way to victory in our little personal battle!
That’s the end of WWWW for this season. Leaving our personal duel aside, we do hope this has proved useful to you over the last six months. If you have any suggestions as to how the column could be proved, please put them in the comments below, or drop a PM to either of us via the Cafe.
Until next season, enjoy the playoffs, knowing that you no longer have to keep watching those waivers (for a few months, at least)!
