2nd schwarze in a row- today must be my lucky day..incredible considering I have 4 teams under .500
8/12/2012 1:32 PM
2nd 2-4 in a row... Which means I'm likely to have my first losing day. Even with a schwarze in the pm2 cycle I'll still turn in my worst day yet.

Three teams at 11-9 and three teams at 10-10.  Nothing to shout from the mountaintops about but I'm pretty darn sure this is the latest I've ever gone into the tournament where all six of my teams were at .500 or above at the same time.

Of course, now that I've mentioned it, I'm doomed.

Figure the odds - in the PM2 Round, the three teams that were 11-9 all lost.  The three teams that were 10-10 all won.  I now have six teams with an identical 11-10 record.  Trust me though...I'm not complaining!

Pretty amazing...I'm 6 games over .500 as well and it sucks because I have 2 teams a combined 22 games
Over .500...(18-3 and 14-7) which shows that my other teams may ruin my chance at getting to the 2nd round..early though

My 93 mets have the worst record in the league and are 9 games behind the division leading...93 mets. Can you analyze that one for me schwarze? Am I jusT extremely unlucky again?

Compare you roster with the division leading 93 Mets roster.  There must be some differences.

3 extra inning games...awesome
8/13/2012 10:06 AM
sorry for the late response schwarze.  the ave is prob higher than usual b/c of the extra innings games i've been in plus a few others.  i agree 100% about the innings of king's that i will miss out on.  regarding my strategy, i drafted the best pitching staff i could possibly get along with a ton of home run hitters.  the idea being i may only get 6 hits in a game, but if 2 are homers i should win more than i lose.  not working out so far, but it's early and the hitters should normalize some.  but i've dropped 7 games i could've won b/c of fatigue which will hurt.  no worries, i'm having fun and i always have much better 2nd halves of seasons so who knows.

OK, glad you are having fun.  You just never know how teams will perform sometimes.  The team I like the best always disappoints (and vice versa).  Good luck with your HR-strategy.  It took a lot of balls to try that.  I'm too much of a coward to expiremtn with something that radical.

it will be interesting to see how the home vs away split for my team will be.  i expected a lot of small-ballers in the league, and they should have trouble at Yankee Stadium III.  sometimes i over think this stuff and i hope i didn't in that league, but we all may learn something.  i hope it's something good!! :)

You know how I spent all that time on my $80M +/- one year league, just in case I made the 2nd round...?

Waste of ******* time.

8/13/2012 4:31 PM
Not if you can find 23 other non-2nd-round ownerss who may want to play in an 80M theme league.
8/13/2012 7:37 PM
back-to-back 1-5s today, followed by a 5-1. Naturally the 1 win in the PM cycle was the 1 loss in the PM2 cycle.

My worst team is 9-15, which is actually pretty good considering my worst years. It's frustrating that my two best teams can never quite pull away from .500 (14-10 and 12-12 now; neither have been more than 4 games over .500.)
