I like it how it is right now, I don't care too much for streaming as the absolute worst move for me is letting go someone who begins to produce after I let go of him, but that's my style as a manager, I could stream pitchers maybe for the weekend games if I see that I need W, IP and K but I choose not to do it and maybe that's why I didn't make it past round 1 of the playoffs.

It's probable that if I had played 2-3 more pitchers last week I would've won and might be still in the fight for the championship. Tico edged me by 5.2 IP, 9 K and we tied in W and I had a comfortable lead in ERA (0.99 difference) but no so much in WHIP (0.16 difference).

Streaming is a good strategy, one that requieres more attention to the game that sometimes we don't have time for. I think I might have used it once or twice but I normally don't use it. I'm in no way against it, I'll have to adapt if I'm ever to win an A2K Yahoo Fantasy Baseball League.

@Pantalones,
I went to look at the playoffs this morning and noticed I missed a week playing the Gushies (!!) - I'd figured the Paws were eliminated and forgot there was a followup week. C'est la vie.. but I'll remember next year.

@ossobuco,
A variation on "The dog ate my homework." McGentrix and I agreed to play our consolation game, but neither of us has put much effort into it.

@realjohnboy,

consolation games are kinda silly to me.

The difference between Ticomaniacs and PFM was a mere 0.02 in ERA (2.66 vs. 2.68), enough for them to squeeze into the final.

WHAAAAAAAAAAAH!

@fbaezer,
That was a squeeker, alright. Good game. I almost gave it away with my horrific pitching yesterday.

@Ticomaya,
All three Premiata-Ticomaniacs matchups were extremely tight this season.
I got the short end this time.

Now I plan to go streaming galore with George & Rhyss for the 3rd place trophy.

Looks like the Tubas are starting to pull away with it...

The CG/SO has pushed the boat away from the dock, I'm afraid. What chance I had has gone ...

We both know that ain't true. It's close in multiple categories.

@Gargamel,
Nope. The Cinderella story of 2009 has come to a close -- 0-4 to start the season, then not a loss until the 20th week ... all in vain! Oy vey! <tears clothes>

@Ticomaya,
I think "Cinderella" and"Ticomaniacs" are words that don't go together well.

With utter amazement, I learn this morning that I eeked out a win against The Mighty Tubas. They did indeed appear to be a team destined to annihilate the Ticomaniacs, as they dominated me for the fortnight. With the slimmest of opportunities, my boys ratcheted up and gave it their all for one last day ... and for one day, I was able to manage correctly and bench the right guys.

Great season as always, guys. Congrats to the Tubas and Premiata Forneria M. for finishing in the money.

A shocker for sure. A special eff you goes out to Chipper Jones, for obvious reasons, and Mike Scosia for sending Torii Hunter to bat a whopping 6 times this week.

But alas, the Ticomaniacs are deserving champs, and even had I prevailed yesterday, they would still have been the team's best league, as Tico straight up owned in most stat categories.

Well done, sir, and thanks for an exciting championship.

See y'all next year.

Great season, everyone. Next year, the Puppies may very well be microscopic.

So Tico squeezed it, again! Congratulations.

Great season, Toobas. Like me, you fell one day short.

Now we must prevent the Ticomaniacs from winning, yet again, in Fantasy Football.

Thank you ... but hey, let's not go overboard. I've never won an A2K Fantasy Baseball league before -- unlike yourself!!!

My best finish previously was 2 years ago when the title was stolen from me by someone who shall remain nameless (... but whose initials are F.B.)

Tico won his match-up in Football this week but he still looks weak. Congrats, though, on the Baseball thing. He is in 12th place out of 14 players.

Tico, you defeated 2 very strong teams in a row. As a deserving champion, you shouldn't play weakling. Ticomaniacs are always strong, and often prove it. We all know you're one of the most competitive players in all A2K fantasy sports -if not the most-, which is why every matchup against the Ticomaniacs is guaranteed fun .
You confessed that you're trying to build a Dynasty. And you sure are working to do it. Soooooo...
The rest of us must prevent it!
