It was crazy: I won all 7 pitching categories, he won all 7 offensive categories.
First tie-breaker: head-to-head over the year. That record? 20-20.
Second tie-breaker: overall record. I was 1st in this league, so that got me to the final...
this is going to be the same situation for me i can tell already. during the year I beat him 5-4,he beat me 5-4. Sadly he finished 3.5 GB of 1st for the 2 seed and i finished 4.5 GB for the 3 seed...tough luck i guess

Against team A the first match ended in a tie 5-5-2, the 2nd match he won, 6-5-1.
Against team B, we only had one match and he won 6-5-1.
So even though I had the better overall record, I might get the short end of the stick. I wish there was a better way to determine the winner, just got to hope for the best I guess.
That seems fair to me. I don't want someone winning the tiebreaker with overall record because they had an easy schedule and played the worst teams in the league more often.
But that's when you have divisions, that's not the case in my league. But even if that were the case, sports its full of divisions with weak teams and weak schedules, that's just how it is.
if I play against team A, is cool we played twice and he squeaked out a W, but against team B we only played once and he barely beat me, so how is that fair? who is to say I don't beat him 12-0 the 2nd time we play?
Aside from seeding, why should the regular season have any say on what happens in the playoffs? They're 2 different animals. H2H tie breakers should only be applied to determine seeding, not to determine who wins a match in the playoffs.
i dont like this new rule. it didnt affect me, pujo the devil went yard twice last sun to beat me(i hate that guy so much brad lidge style)...so its not biased
i dont think regular season play should account for anything except seeding. once that is done...be gone w regular season. its a new season...the playoffs
only play that week should account for anything...including tie breaker. i see no reason to change it. it was fine...everyone knew ERA was the tie breaker...so you manage accordingly. it allows you to do stuff to help your tie breaker cat...the new system you cant do anything...your hands are tied(hehe) to your regular season record
