This is the first time I've had all six teams make the playoffs I believe. At the halfway point of seasons up for sure I'd only four teams in. My $90 Mil team was 41-40 and the break and finished on a 51-30 run. My $120 Mil was even worse. They were 25-41 at one point in dead last by a fair amount. Went 66-30 from that point on. Of course that means I'll get swept in the 1st round for even bringing it up....

Wow... that *really* sucks. I wouldn't wish that upon my worst enemy. Good luck in your play-in games...

At one point I was 27 games under .500 and I think in 84th place.  I ended up 30 games over tied for 41st place and 2 teams in the playoffs.  Even I finished outside of the cage again I have to be happy with the comeback.  Just too much too overcome.

Terrible 1st round for me....can't believe I put up two clunkers that never had a shot......gonna need a decent playoff showing just to make the 2nd round.

Thanks bardin.  It's hard to get your hopes up after today - I'll be happy if one of my play-in teams advances.

Two play in games, finished 1-1 with one epic collapse complete (L6) and one amazing winning stream extended (W12)

Finished with a schwarze...guess that's something to be happy about...

5-10 in games, 0-3 in first round series so far. All 3 elimination losses by 1 run. I hate the first playoff round.

Best teams to lose a round 1 series

107-55  mildnhazy  ($100M)
105-57  schwarze  ($80M)
105-57  beauchamp  ($110M)
104-58  mensu1954  ($70M)
104-58  jbohrman  ($110M)

It's unreal how often 100-win teams get beat in round 1 (almost always to teams with 10-15 fewer wins).

In one $110M league (MLB105799), all four 100-win teams lost in round 1.    My guess is that the worst seed has won more than 50% of the first round series so far.

Yeah, that was my favorite to actually have a shot at a title.  Although to be fair, 2 of us in that league got knocked out by 98 win teams so it wasn't quite as painful as the losing to the 85 win team.....

My WIS Championship ended with a dud. Lost a three way tie for the Wild Card with my $70M team, lost in the DS with my $100M team 3 games to 1, and my $120M team got swept in the DS.

Thanks for putting such a great tourney together, had a blast. Best of luck to those that move onto Round 2.

Ugh... just went 0-5 in playoff games in the pm2 session, including a game 5 loss to knock another 100+ win team out.  Will need to update post above.
