AHHHHHHH!!!!

I'm going crazy folks like I'm Jack Buck...and now all I have to do is keep Grandy/Polanco quiet and tying up HR would give me a one point victory.....

Anyway, I was losing 10-5 coming into today, but pretty close in all categories. Markakis, Teixeira, Wright combine for 5 homers, actually bring it down to 8-6. I was down 1 in wins, and up 1 in losses. I didn't check last night about tomorrow's starters, and forgot to start Vazquez (but had Verlander starting). Brett Myers pitches a CG, gives me 8-7. I'm just hoping for Verlander to not take the loss...didn't happen. Score stayed 8-7, and I'm knocked out of the winner's bracket, where the best I can do now is 3rd place.
The thing is that if I had started Vazquez, I would've won due to the tiebreaker rule (I'm leading in ERA). The guy I was facing this week also happened to be the guy I beat last year in the playoffs, again by 8-8 and winning via tiebreaker. It's left me terribly frustrated knowing that it was due to my negligence that I had lost...but oh well. Life goes on. WAH WAH WAH
