As schwarze pointed out in the preseason rankings, there are only 9 of us who've played in all 9 tournaments (counting this one). Seven of them have finished in the top 10 before, so I thought it might be nice for people to hear from the other side of the tracks, as it were. There are plenty of skilled owners here every year, but there are quite a few of us who, shall we say, round out the field. Every now and then, lesser players can sneak in to the second round ... and it's fun to go up against some of the best the site has to offer.

Best mean finish: 2.33, 2005 and 2009

Best absolute finish: 33rd, 2007
Worst absolute finish: 86th, 2010
Most wins: 505, 2005 (505-467, .520)
Most losses: 556, 2006 (416-556, .428)

Interesting stuff.  You should add a most games ahead category.  

Finish 70 games back in 3rd is impressive!

Yeah, mildnhazy blew that division away. $140M, DH, only certain parks available, no more than $40M on pitching ... it was brutal. I was 29 games ahead of the 4th-place team.
8/10/2012 7:18 PM
Was I the 4th place team? I don't remember how bad I did in that theme, I jusT remember I finished dead last with an embarrassing record that assured me I had no chance of moving on.

I was in a division with schwarze last year. I won the WC by like 11 games...and finished 14 or so games behind schwarze.

at least you made the playoffs. There's a chance of making up some of that ground then.

One of my two second-place 18 GB teams went 92-70 ... the next-farthest second-place teams in that league was 6 GB, and neither of the teams in that position even broke .500. I finished third in the wild-card race. The wild-card in the other league had 103 wins. (And four teams lost 100 or more games. One went 49-113. The guy in third in that division lost 100. The division winner was 81-81.) 

crazy.
8/10/2012 9:49 PM
That doesn't make any sense z.  If nobody else in 2nd place was over .500 you would have to have been first in the Wild Card.  No way to be 3rd if you're the best 2nd-place team...

Sorry, I should have clarified: one sub-.500 team was in the PL and one in the NL. I was the third-best 2nd-place team overall, and third-best non-division-winner in the NL. 96- and 95-win teams froze me out of the playoffs on my side, and the wildcard in the PL won 103 games.

This is from the 2005 blacklist league that schwarze posted for me here.

8/11/2012 12:23 AM
so of the six second-place teams, I was farthest back, 18 games out. The next two, one in each league, were 6 games. The other three were closer than that.
8/11/2012 6:34 PM
I was in a division one year where three of us won over 100 games. 

My team was the one that did not make the playoffs.
8/11/2012 8:14 PM
yeah, that's no fun.
