So we at TFN did an awful job of keeping you, the readers, abreast of our fantasy baseball activities. I apologize. You missed out on some of the most venemous trash talk to ever be posted on a Yahoo! message board. Controversial trades and a suspect commish…oh wait. None of that happened.
I think most of the leage stopped paying attention midway through the season. As a matter of fact, my wife and I didn’t even set our line-ups during that time. And guess what…
KCCB and KCCB’s wife are playing for the league championship! Who gives a shit!?
The final league standings were something like this:
2nd Someone Else
3rd Nukem’s wife
6th KCCB’s wife
It’s close to that, I don’t know. Don’t care. The semis featured the wives vying for a spot in the Championship while I played the 1st place Ringer (Masshole4life). Somehow, the CocoaButter clan made it through.
So what did we, as TFN staff, learn:
Baseball sucks and fantasy baseball is worse. Perhaps I didn’t set up the league correctly, but it appeared to easy to keep picking up the hot free agents to stay in contention. Also, if you forgot to set your line up for a day (and were competing against a ringer), you were effed. The ringers did well if they paid attention (Masshole4Life had best record by leaps and bounds), but like real baseball, a flukey team (like mine) can overtake a better team. However, I hated it and will never do it again. Baseball is just not a strong suit of TFN staff, yet. (This is an open solicitation to anyone who’d want to cover baseball to expand our sphere of influence).
So let’s close this chapter of our dark past and look toward the light, that is fantasy football! Let us bask and revel in its glory.
Until next time, keep it smooth, keep it sweet–Like KCCB.
