Boy, am I curious about this. Our standings are usually well settled by Sept. 1st but this year has been different. There has been a lot of cycling back and forth in the top 4 slots. I finally built a six point lead, only to see 2 points go in a day and looking at trends can see where the guy in second could move up on me in two cats which would make us even!! Biting nails time...

7 points out of first in Behrens' Roto Arcade Pro-Am, in 3rd right now. I'm really hoping I can make a push, but having surpassed my IP limit, I don't see it happening. Maybe another Runner Up finish if I'm lucky, unless my bats explode and the two teams ahead of me just stop hitting completely. :-b

You have made a hell of a run in the past couple weeks. My bats just completely stopped hitting through most of the summer but somehow I was managing to hang in the top 3 or 4. Well until the last couple weeks. !+) Stupid Upton and Soriano. :-t

That IP limit really jumped up on me. I thought I'd have a few more days to pick and choose starts, or load up and try and maximize my K/9 and SV. Oh well. Right now I just need my bats to keep a swingin'. I'd like to, at the very least, hang onto 3rd Place and snag the bronze.
