This also illustrates the extremes of good fantasy leagues. Pogo is a very good fantasy baseball mind and he finished last that year. And I turned out an awesome finish as well.

Thats a cool idea so I went and tallied the Cafeholics Masters league(15 teams) to see who's averaged the best finish the last 5 years('08-'12) and I only chose those that played in the league at least 3 times over those last 5 years. The league has been going on longer than this I do believe so if anyone wants to expand on this that has been in this league longer than I have, feel free. Just a reminder to those that may not know, you have to finish top 10 to stay in the Masters league otherwise you move down to the Pond Scum league and the top 5 finishers from Pond Scum will move up to the Masters. Also, since I did this all fairly quickly I might have missed someone but it's kinda difficult to figure out who everyone is, especially if they change team names each year, let me know If I completely messed this up for anyone, or if I left anyone out that has played in the Masters at least 3 times since '08.
