i took 3rd, tied with the dude in 2nd, but lost the tiebreaker, and was only half a game behind the dude in second, which the 1 and two seed get $75 back and a first week bye :-t :~(

The league I'm in uses 18 cats so it's kind of weird, but awesome nonetheless. ;-D

That's good. That's like, better than '84 Tigers good. 8-o

I eked out 2nd place in my league after a steady climb from 6th. I played the 2nd place team on the last week, and was actually down 7-6 coming into yesterday morning, but then Sabathia, MCab, and Giambi pulled me out as well as a little luck. Vlad, Renteria, and Cameron didn't play, and his entire team went 4/25 with 1 HR and 1 RBI. ;-D I went up on him 9-2 and me and him wound up tied, 8 games out of first. But I went 161-124-23 and he went 165-128-15, which made me the victor.

Rocinante2: you know
Rocinante2: its easy to dismiss the orioles as a bad team
ofanrex: go on
Rocinante2: i'm done
Rocinante2: lmao

In one of my H2HWS leagues, 19.5 games out of first place a month ago. Today, a half-game at the top of the heap.

won by 1 gm, but i actually preferred #2 for playoff matchups but being the regular season #1 earned me an extra $50. ;-D

Literally the exact same thing here.

Me too, and I lost my bye. I won 7-5-0 after being down early in the week but the team behind me even though he had a mediocre week- worse than mine played a team that laid an egg and beat him 11-0-1. I finished a game and a half out of a bye. :-t
