Will someone please do me a favour and explain to me how a clone team comprised of Frankie Frisch, Tim Raines, Victor Martinez, Jose Vizcaino, Don Sutton and Mariano Rivera is playing .600 ball and leading my division - it's been driving me a bit batty - thanks!

Every team of mine is currently between 67-60 and 73-54. I guess there's something to be said for consistency, but I've fallen like a rock in the standings over the last week or two without really any discernible reason...

Here's a fun fact.  At this point in the season, ALL SIX OF MY TEAMS are below their Pythagorean records.  In fact, the average underperformance is a full 78 percentage points behind the Pythagorean win %, or roughly 2.73 games behind where they "should be".

In a tournament of 96 players, one or two owners could be expected to have all six teams underperforming.  And this year... it's me.

All 6 of my teams are still under my pythagorean win%.  Most are closing the gap to their expected win%, but two are still around a full .100% below.  Can't complain too much since it looks like I might advance to the next round, but come on Skip lets manage those teams a bit better.

0-6 last night followed by 6-0 this morning.  Nothing like toying with my emotions...
9/19/2012 9:43 PM
That's why I've started looking at 2-3 cycles at once. I had my first 0-6 last week, but it was coupled with a 5-1, so that took some of the sting off.
9/19/2012 9:51 PM
I'm still amazed that in a $100M cap league, my team is slugging .142 points below their real life total.
9/19/2012 10:03 PM
my first ever schwarze doesn't make me feel a whole lot better about 70th place.
9/20/2012 9:21 PM
My first 0-6... three 1-run losses in the set, and none by more than 3 runs...
9/22/2012 12:59 PM
I had 3 teams in first with 30-40 games to go. One just finished blowing an 11 game lead by going 1-5 against the two worst teams in the league (still tied for first), one just got swept by the worst team in the league (now 3 back), and one has seen their lead dwindle from 7 to 2 games. Clutch my boys are not.

TWO GAMES IN A ROW the STUPID SIM brings my MOPUP guy in to a tie game??????? when my setting is only use when losing!
