Here's another league with 2-3 teams who will win 88-92 games and not make the playoffs.
That's what happens when you have two 130-loss teams in the league.

This is the same league as above... sucks to be in the AL East.
This could be the first time a 100-win team doesn't make the playoffs.

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!
...Hmmm? ...Don't quite know enuff 2 answer?

...Is "MRivera" a switch-hitter?

nothing like a good ol schwarze that doesn't mean anything because 4 of your 6 teams are sub .500
9/28/2012 1:43 PM
ditto

9/28/2012 9:57 PM
Probably won't be enough, even with a good series of playoff runs to get me to the cage, but we couldn't have finished any better (both of the 1-run wins clinched playoff berths as well):

How does the point system work for the playoffs? Thanks
9/29/2012 7:16 AM
1 point per win, like regular season. 5 point bonus for making playoffs. 5 point bonus for each playoff series won.
9/29/2012 6:44 PM

To have a team in first place by 11 games with 35 to go miss the playoffs is absolutely ridiculous.

9/29/2012 10:08 PM
I had three teams finish 1 game out of the playoffs, one of them losing a divisional tiebreaker.  I'm anticipating that in 48 hours I'll be out of the cage for the first time since this thing started.  Too bad it's only how you finish that counts!
9/29/2012 10:17 PM
I had 3 teams in first with 35 games to go, two by double digit margins - two missed the playoffs, the third blew a 10 game lead and rebounded to win by 6 games.

The irony: My best team was the 93-win Silver King team, and it was not one of those three in playoff contention.

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.

Six weeks later, ALL of my teams underperformed their Pythagorean records (a tidy little 1.5% chance).

That was money well spent.... (well, certificates, but you get my point)

Earlier I saw somebody say something about running a theme league for the $80m league for those of us who aren't going to be able to use our round two team because we won't be playing in round two. If that is going to happen I'd like to participate. My round one team is a running joke, but I do believe my round two team would have been better and I'd like to see how it goes, especially after having put so much thought into building the teams.

I will run that league.  Not sure how to advertise it.  Maybe schwarze could help me out with a sitemail?
