I just had to get this started in celebration after I realized I don't have a single league with schwarze this year. I feel like I won the lottery :)

You realize that the only reason I made round 2 last year is because two people ahead of my decided not to play round 2.  I'm way past my prime in this game.

Well all hail Schwarze...this is a highlight of the year for me (which explains the state of my life)...

Wait until you get to be my age hooze. You'll just be happy to be on this side of the dirt.

I think there are going to be some really awful teams in the clone leagues. Especially those with out of position catchers. You could see 2 or 3 teams in a division win 100 games and skew things pretty badly. I hope I'm wrong!!!

Just wanna say that i'm 7-5 after 3 sets of games and this is the furthest into the season i have gone and been above .500 .  Here's to me jinxing that!!

You don't get that much of an advantage from being in the same division as a bad team - playing them 14 times versus 12 times is not a big deal. You do get a big advantage of being in the same league (i.e. AL or NL). But there are 11 teams with roughly the same advantage, so hopefully it won't be too big a skew. 

But it would be boring if there wasn't any luck involved in this competition!

Math was never his strong suit.

A perfect opportunity to use the approved WISC lingo: you schwarzed the pm games.

1-6 in one-run games on day 1.  6-5 in the other games.  awesome.

After the first two sets of games my teams lost 3 in extras and 4 more via the walk off. We also won one in extras. In the next two sets of games we won one in extra, lost one in extras, and won via a walk off. Too many heart-attack-inducing games so far.

So, for those counting, that's 6extra inning games and 5 walk offs (11 games deciding in the bottom of the 9th or later) out of the first 24 = not a good start.

I know it's a very small sample size, but I'm disappointed in the relative lack of errors so far for teams fielding guys out of position or with horrible defensive ratings. I hope those of us who actually found players with decent stats and ratings at every position will be rewarded over those who simply threw out the best offensive players, regardless of any positional ratings.
