Does pitching fatigue reset for the playoffs?

Not exactly. Guys get more innings, so they'll recover somewhat. But if you murder a guy, he won't miraculously be 100% when the playoffs start.

If I remember right, you get about 3% back.

Glad I had a little breathing room -- you're getting fat off of the Dark Knights now ... just as I am finally forced to get Sale & Co. some rest.

Somehow lost game 2 to 67% Strasburg :bag: 

Yikes -- Strasburg started the game at 67% and threw a 122-pitch complete game. Must've been resorting to the Eephus pitch by the end of that.

Sheesh -- Wacha was basically throwing underhand from a lawn chair. Anyone check those balls for Vaseline?

So, apparently gold glove short stops make horrible, 5 passed balls, catchers. 

Whodathunkit?

I really cut it close on IP so will be Radatzing two pitchers for the rest of the season.  I checked and none of the games have playoff implications.

Matt Shoemaker is taking one eleven for the team (again)

I'm going to have Danny Valencia play all 9 positions over the last 10 games or so, including a few games at catcher.  That should be interesting.  Likely to Radatzize RA Dickey for a few games as well.

Yet, Danny Valencia comes through with 0 PBs in his catching debut.

Looks like the playoff matchups are unofficially set -- every team that's in has essentially clinched their position:

NL
New Orleans Pelicans at Geneva Bombers**
Java 8 was released on March 18, 2014 at Oso Gallo

AL
Votto Turner Overdrive
at Mind over Motter
Bringers of Rain? at DallasUPSIDERS

 

** Geneva Bombers can still tie Oso Gallo for best record in the NL, but WIS keeps divisional rivals from playing in the first round, so the NL matchups will be unaffected.

One last chance for RnR to break the .100 winning percentage mark.  :coffee:

 

Shocked to have gotten 100 wins... gonna be tough with my lack of stud pitching in the playoffs, but it's been a lot more fun a ride than expected. Three years, three playoff births, not too shabby.

81-80 with 1 to go...........

Samardija was real good for me, sadly he became my ace with the death of aaron sanchez.  my pen was decent enough, offence too.  just too much hammel, moore and kennedy pitching to 6 ERAs.  The SIM is obviously offence heavy, really no reason to draft anything other than pitching early, since all bats out perform.  I had enough innings, but they were awful innings, like having a real life rotation of 5 mike pelfreys.  yeah, he takes the ball and throws 200 innings, but if those innings suck, who really cares?
