Cool. All of my pitchers pitched this weekend (including two Ws and a save yesterday, of course) so I am guaranteed zero two start weeks for the playoffs this week :-t :-t

I got Bumgarner at home against COL today and AJ Griffin tomorrow (Just dropped Fiers for him). My opponent had Fister get hit hard today but he got a crappy 1 out save from Reed, and tomorrow he's got Scherzer, Zimmerman and Chen. I don't think I stand a shot at wins or K's so my relievers better not screw me this week and drag me down in ERA and losses.

Jimmy Rollins destroyed my favorite playoff team last week. .393-9-3-6-5 UGH!

McCutchen had a nice week someone must have told him he gets bonus points for MVP if he plays well in the fantasy playoffs.

If nothing else I'm rooting for Trout to reach 30-50 over the next few weeks.

If Baltimore plays Oakland in the wild card round, who gets home advantage and will they even sell out?

Last week I also dropped Carlos Beltran and Pablo Sandoval. It's playoff time use em or lose em. I have Pujols, Aram and Longoria and no need to waste a bench spot on the Panda, and Beltran has just been awful.

I dropped Fister last week too and that came back to help me already =)

True. I have a feeling holding onto Papi and Tulo hoping for the best will be the end of me.

Just squeaked into the semis, my offense was anemic all week but luckily so was the other team's and my team went off on Sunday. Very lucky, and if it happens again I'm done.

Just dropped Kershaw. 18 days left in the regular season, even if he makes 1 more start, will he be 100%? Meanwhile my opponent is using every last one of his drop/adds (we have a 75 cap, he's at 50) to pick up 2-3 probable starters per day to try and gain an advantage over me in W's, K's, and QS. It sucks, but goodbye Clayton, it's been real dog.
