In 2002, I had luis Castillo and Adam Kenedy for 2b men. On the last day of the season, I put in Kenedy because the game meant more to the angels than the marlins. Castillo stole three bases, and I lost to the winner in the category by 1 sb. His team stole 1 that day. I put in so much work, only to lose by a snap decision to put one guy in or another.
Any of you all have some "last day drama"?
I have a heartbreaker.
H2H league with a two week world series. Last day of the Series is Sunday and the only game going is the Sunday night game between Texas and someone last year.
My opponent onlly has Big Tex going.
Tex went 3 for 5 with 2 dingers.
I was up by 2 homers and up in average and everything else was already locked up.
It was standard 5x5.
anyway...the two homers ties me in homers and the 3 for 5 was good enough to edge me out in average. how close was it...well it was so close that my buddy (my opponent) and i were on the phone talking and following the last inning or so. If Tex gets another plate appearance and goes 3 for 6, I win. If Tex gets another plate appearance and walks or gets a hit...then he wins.
That is how close. After a long grueling year...and two weeks in the world series, consisting of over 600 ABs...it comes down to Big Tex going 3 for 5 or 3 for 6.
Oh yeah...to add to the misery...it was the same guy who beat me the year before in the World Series and it cost me the difference between a $600 championship and a $250 runner-up
