I start off division play 9-3 only to go 4-14 since then

No losing cycles until the standings link was posted. Have had only one cycle that wasn't a losing cycle (5-1) since.

I hear ya j4. Broke my cardinal rule and peeked at the standings to see I was 15th. Since then I have plummeted to 58th after 7 straight near Mauchs (1-5). Another lost year.

Maybe there's something to this...over the last seven games, my teams are a collective 11-31.  Then again, I do suck at this...

Come back to hockey, man...

It'll make all this baseball stuff
un-cobweb itself... Nolan Ryan
-&- Robin Ventura is ''quite'' the
rarity here... But, happens all of
the time, over there...

Really, ask yourself how many
owners here couldn't make use
of a stupid Robin Ventura, right
now, as a 'punching-bag' ???...
Really, don't U just want to slap
these tourney results, & the WiS
SiM into oblivion?

Come back to hockey, man...

...and now after another 1-5 round, it becomes a 12-36 stretch.  In less than 3 days, I've dropped 69 percentage points in the overall standings.  Geesh, hockey IS starting to look better and better...

Followed my first 6-0 with a nifty 1-5... yippie
8/13/2013 8:45 PM
1/6 of the way through - an overall record of 77-84 (.481). Was hoping for .500 so I am not that far off. Hoping for a better next 162 games. $70M team in trouble with fatigue. Two teams might be contenders for playoff spots, the others are done.

What is wrong with my $110M team,  Leads the league in average, 5th OBP 6th in SLG and 4th in OPS.  Guess were I am at with runs scored?  14th!
8/16/2013 4:36 PM
Every time I reach .500  - which is 6 or 7 times now, I fall off. Just can't break the barrier. Back to 4 under now. I did have a no-hitter in the $70M league thrown by Louisiana Lightning.

just when it appeared we were collectively turning things around, we went 0-6, getting outscored 79 - 18 in the process...

After berating them in the forums, they responded with a W8.  They did blow the last game in the 9th and 10th, but I will overlook that.

The only team I felt I was really going short on IP was the 110M team. Naturally, that team has already has 12 extra inning games, and has pitched 20 more innings than the average team in the league. Please make it stop!
8/22/2013 8:14 PM
So yeah...I still suck at this game...

1/3 of the way through the championship. Overall record of 158-166 (.488), not much of an improvement since the 1/6 mark. I like to evaluate my clubs at the 54 game mark - after playing 1/3 of the season you pretty much know where you stand as far as competitiveness goes.

Here are my teams at this point:
  • $ 70M: 31-23, 2nd Place, 1GB
  • $ 80M: 28-26, 1st Place, 2GA
  • $ 90M: 24-30, 4th Place, 13GB
  • $100M: 27-27, 2nd Place, 3GB
  • $110M: 19-35, 4th Place, 16GB
  • $120M: 29-25, 2nd Place, 5GB
We'll see how things go from here. It appears that four of the six teams have a chance of making the postseason while two are toast. I'm pretty happy with that since my finishes in the this tournament are usually in the 70's and I'd like to realistically move up 12 spots from my last finish. Another goal is to finish the regular season with an overall record of .500 or better. I've hit the mark several times which has been followed with a 1-5 or 2-4 and have not been able to pass the mark. Hoping I can get closer at the halfway point of the season and we'll really know where things are headed.
