Fantasy Baseball Results

It was another well-played and excellent baseball fantasy season, my favorite of the fantasy leagues. Dirty Hands and Spectrum's Hoodrats were neck and neck for the lead for the better part of the season, with the Hands wrestling control away the last week of the season. My Seamen shot into a second place tie with a last minute spurt.

 

The Hands had three of the top dozen players in the league: Joey Votto, Paul Konerko and Robinson Cano. They managed their pitching staff well and scored in the top half of every single category, doing especially well in the power numbers.

 

The Hoodrats were easily the most solid team from top to bottom for most of the season, drafting sluggers like Adrian Gonzalez, Matt Holiday and Evan Longoria, stud pitchers like Jered Weaver and David Price, and using the waiver wire to pick up jewels like Buster Posey. But they burned out their innings early and Hands passed them by.

 

My team fought injury and disappointment, but I thought I shook up my pitching staff pretty well all season to stay into it until the end.

 

Beanpot finished fourth, which is probably the lowest he has ever finished in any fantasy league. Our resident Baseball Nut is on suicide watch.

 

Cimo finished a respectable 5th, scoring 70 in a very competitive league.

 

Rudy's Steamer's topped the next group with a 61, but his poor ERA and WHIP led to a sixth place finish

 

Balpeen finished a solid seventh, micro-managing the whole way ... but had a knipschit when I traded McCann for Strasburg. At least I was trying ... who knew Stras would go down?

 

The Ol' Buzzard, Rich4Eagle, tried to scrap a team together but just didn't have the horses and finished 8th. As far as I know, he didn't accuse anyone of cheating, which is a first, maybe the old codger is getting soft.

 

The Hammer had some nice pitching numbers, but an anemic offense led to his 9th place finish

 

Then there were the ladies: The fur was flying till the very end to decide who would finish dead last, and Heidi pulled it out by a short hair over Kathy's team. It is fair to say Kathy's teams don't fare well unless she calls them "Mayhem".

It wasn't the names in the trade. It had to do with the fact Stras had maybe 14 innings left on a pitch count the Nationals were going to impose. You might have had him for two games while McCann was going to play another 30-40 games.

 

Plus...I knew he was going down the next week. ;) I was trying to protect you from yourself.

 

 

 

Ahhh...what do I know....you beat me this year, so all is good.

 

 

Had a great time and look forward to next season.

He had 50-something innings left at the time and I thought I could make a move in some pitchng categories, but the trade imploded on me, because not only did he get hurt but so did Giavonni Soto, who was the guy that made McCann expendable for me. But it worked out OK because i picked up Carlos Zambrano who caught fire and gave me that boost in pitching I was looking for and I scrapped some decent catchers together.

 

It was fun, I enjoy the baseball. I absolutely suck at the football because every thought I have revolves around the Browns winning so I draft with my heart and bench guys playing the Browns. Baseball I am more detached, the fantasy part actually keeps me more interested and moe informed about the game.

 

Fantasy Baseball, Pro Pickem and College Bowl Mania are my favorites. In the rest of the leagues I am just fodder to beat on.
