WIS MMXIII Back to the Future 3 - MLB107075

Amazingly pulled out the division in the 3-way elimination. After starting in a 5-19 hole I only had the outright lead for one game, after game 161.

While it hurts to lose the deciding game in part on a Barney error, my so-so team had no business winning the division. Good luck.

Well, down 2-0 again. We'll see if I have any magic left.

Bronson Arroyo with 2 starts this postseason, one CGSO and one lasting 1/3 of an inning.

Chris Davis was the best player I have ever had in one of these by far:

.347/.428/.738

63 HR 176 RBI 138 Runs 226 Hits

Bondsian type season....for a last place team.

I didn't even expect to make the playoffs but my team managed to go 93-69 and sneak into the AL wild card. Got up 2-0 on the Running Robots in the LDS and then lost 3 straight. Oof.

Coco Crisp .298-29-75-30sb

Robbie Cano .320-36-94

Ryan Zimmerman .289-33-103

Domonic Brown .290-33-107

Jeff Baker with his best Shane Spencer impersonation, .318/.400/.745 with 13HR in 125 PA

Alex Cobb 15-5, 2.83

Martin Perez 11-4, 2.67

Kevin Correia somehow went 15-8 with a 4.58 ERA

Trevor Rosenthal 47 saves, 2.72 ERA

Well, looks like I am about done. I got off to a 2-0 lead against Arsenal, but he proceeded to win 3 straight. I now have to beat Cliff Lee and Zach Greinke back to back if I want to go to the World Series.

Oh well, it was a good run and a lot of fun.

The home team has won every game so far in the series.

I'm still amazed that I made it through 4 starts of Jose Fernandez and Matt Harvey in the Division round.

Nice series Rodg, I think you had the overall best team this year. Good luck in the finals.

Managed to eke out a Game 6 win. Now it's 20 game winner Jordan Zimmermann vs. 21 game winner Zach Greinke for a trip to the World Series.

Win or lose, this has been fun.

Really hating that I lost Game 4 by giving up 4 runs in the bottom of the 8th with a 8-5 lead to lose 9-8. Damn bullpen.

I'm so drafting some pitchers next year.

Had to draft 10 real-life starters** just to end up with what ended up as four-and-a-half WIS starters :kicksrock:

** six of whom actually made opening-day MLB rosters

I thought I would zig when everyone zagged this year. Took 1 pitcher in the first 5 round and that was Brett Anderson (RIP).

Should be a fun World Series. Best record in the leeg against the survivor of the Division of Death.

Yep. Greinke was too much for me.

Good luck guys.

Fun fact: three of the four semifinal teams came from one of the last 5 draft spots, both teams in the finals came from one of the last 4 draft spots.

Wow, what a run. Cain was my MVP pitcher for the year. Cuddyer and Napoli co-MVP hitters. Had a gut feel to start Hector Santiago instead of Quintana in the World Series...that paid off in spades. Good series Arsenal. Still can't believe I won one of these. Does that officially earn me :nerd: status?

Well I guess my my team finally dug a hole too deep to climb out of, after winning 7 straight elimination games. 2 road play in games to win the division.

Down 0-2 to Hoos, won 3 straight. Down 0-2 to SoCal, won three straight then game 7 on the road. Just didn't have enough to get past the hottest team over the last quarter of the season and playoffs. Still a pretty good run for a team that started 1-12 and was 5-19 before righting the ship.

Gratz rodg! Well deserved championship. :suds:
