Pretty much. And it's a 2x issue for me.

Should we expect all games from WASH to BOS to be canceled tomorrow? Ironically a typhoon (same as a hurricane) is expected to hit Taiwan in 24-48 hrs. but we live in heavy duty, ugly concrete buildings. The big problems here is landslides in the mountains when they get 500-1000mm (20-40inches) of rain. And some flooding but even that's more nuisance than danger unless you're stupid (and drown).

This could make or break some teams H2H chances .. Many players on these rosters are owned, and there is going to be a lot of upset people cus they lost a post season shot ... by a run ..

I love this game. Sure we count stupid meaningless things like runs and rbis, but we like it, and that's all that matters.

Red is me, in first place for much of the year. Blue is last years champion. Notice, on July 7th, a month and a half ago, he only had 43 points. :*)

A few weeks back, i posted this, and Ghost of Sparta wasnt even in the picture ..

And then a week or so later, he is creeping in.

Now he leads by four ....
Aussie Dodger is in 7th, back 12 some odd points ...

I love it!
