Sigh, thats baseball for you...


Sigh, thats baseball for you...

My first team I put together, the Los Angeles Sharks finished the season 78-84 and finished the season on a 3-7 run. Thankfully because my team is in a weak division, I managed to win the division and make the playoffs. My first round series was against the best team in the league (the Arkansas Naturals) and finished at 99-63 (that would be 21 games ahead of me). I figured my team would have ZERO chance and would be happy to win just one game…or at least be close (especially since my run differential was -40 during the regular season and theirs was +153 for a 193-run difference). Imagine my surprise when not only did I win the series, I won it 4-1 (and outscored them 26-25).

I am now in the World Series, against a team (the Baby Boys) that ended 88-74 (so they won 10 more games than me and outscored me by 180 runs). We split the first 4 games 2-2, it has now come down to a best of 3 series.

I look to be peaking at the right time…
