My offense has shit the bed since the second week of August. Good chance I get spanked by a team that isn't even being managed. Need some dongs and RBIs bad this week.

Posey just laid down the first sac bunt of his career. Honestly, I like it. Guy has been an automatic double play all season, I'll take one out and a RISP over a twin killing any day

What a tough one for the Brew crew with Yelich getting hurt. Only two games out of the WC, too? Tough!

And what's good with the MLB not showing the CLE vs. LAA game on MLB TV? I get that you have it streaming Live through Youtube, but I find it wild that if I'm a PAYING customern for MLB TV you're gonna tell me I gotta watch it exclusively on YouTube. Pretty crazy. These services and streaming subs are getting out of hand.

Praising the sun about the youtube games. So stupid I have to watch it in a separate app. I know it's not the end of the world, but come on, if we are paying for the service why not make it available for us?

Not praising the sun about Yelich. That stinks. Both for the Brew crew and for him because he was putting together another MVP caliber season. Would have loved to see what he would have finished at stats-wise

Tough blow for Yelich and the Brewers. I can't see them hanging on after this. But the Mets still probably have too steep a hill to climb. The Cubs play STL a bunch of times still, but otherwise the schedule is soft. The Nats on the other hand have a tough schedule, and could collapse with that questionable bullpen. But 5.5 games is a lot with 18 to play. And the Mets bullpen is even worse outside of Lugo.

The plan: Starters go 7 or 8 every night, and Lugo cleans up, every day, until he blows out his arm. I'm holding out hope for no other reason than to be able to troll that "New York Mess" guy if he ever shows back up. I predict he'll show up just as soon as the Mets are officially eliminated, because that's how he rolls.

GAF Fantasy Baseball Playoffs are here! A crazy finish to the season with Musky_Cheese Musky_Cheese (Bear Backs), prag16 prag16 (Hilldawg), and R Rock And Roll (Steinbenner) all changing places seemingly hourly over the weekend, but when the dust settled Steinbenner's 8-1 victory was enough to propel him to 3rd in the league. Hilldawg at one point was up 10-0, but had to settle for a 7-2 victory. Good result but not enough to make the playoffs, he finishes 2 games behind Steinbenner and Bear Backs for the last spot.

On to the playoff matchups:

Greyshark Attack (18-3-2) vs. Bear Backs (14-9): Greyshark Attack defeated Bear Backs in both head to head matchups this year (10-0 and 6-4). Injuries have hit some of Greyshark Attack's most important players with the loss of Javier Baez and potentially Mookie Betts - the season long lucky streak of health appears to finally be at its end. Of course this matchup will be almost entirely decided by how well the Nationals do, as that's the entire Bear Backs team.

JareBear JareBear Team (16-5-2) vs. Steinbenner (14-5-4): Jarebear's team (with its ever changing names) lost to Steinbenner 6-4 and tied 5-5 in their 2nd matchup. Jarebear has been on a tear since the All-Star break, not having lost since their first matchup with Steinbenner in Week 11. They have put together the strongest offense in the league, leading everyone in R/HR/RBI. Add in the fact that they are the most prolific streaming team in the league means they also have an advantage in the pitching counting stats. They are a force to be reckoned with and will be a tough out in the playoffs. Steinbenner boasts the best pitching staff in our league - leading in W, ERA, and WHIP, and 2nd in K's. Their offense has had to deal with injuries to their top draft picks this year, so the question will be can Steinbenner's pitching fend off Jarebear's potent offense?

Should be a fun playoffs - 4 good teams to duke it out for the GAF championship - good luck to all!

Not gonna lie I was watching the match up's a lot today. Barely managed to squeak through. I think my offense is turning the corner though so I feel pretty good about this.

Wrong again, just as you've been wrong about me trolling, or trying to be clever, or wanting to gain popularity among the fanatics. You've been wrong about it all, time and again. It's actually quite impressive how wrong you've been for so long.

You're also wrong about the Mess. The franchise is dysfunctional from the top down, and it's put an inferior product on the field. Maybe the agent-turned-GM will stop giving sweetheart deals to ex-clients or have the good sense not to barter away the future, but his first year has set a bad tone. I hope the Mess' make the wild card, but not as much as I want someone to clear out the rot and set the franchise straight.

You've misjudged my character, my intentions, my behaviors, and the New York Mess. Oh, and your trolling sucks. I had thought you were just stupid, but it turns out you are stupid and a dick.

I'm just being honest, because that's how I roll.

Trying to reverse jinx himself like a true gambler
Careful - his reverse jinxing game is strong. The last time he did it I had a 6-2 lead after Monday only to have my worst week of the season after his post.

Although part of me wonders if he really is legit triggered from seeing a guy he dropped homer against him :messenger_grinning_smiling:
