This is the first time since the league started that I missed the playoffs.  Good luck to all those in the winners bracket!

I pretty much knew from the moment the draft was completed that my team was boned.  No pitching and very little in the way of productive power hitters.

That can all be solved with a live draft.  Then, you only have yourself to blame if you suck.

I don't have the energy to deal with setting up a keeper league with live drafting for baseball.

Doesn't need to be keepers.  Not really enamored of that idea anyways.

Every year there are at least two or three players I would love to be able to keep. So I would not be opposed to a keeper league with a small roster that stays from year to year

Of course the playoffs roll around just as my entire roster goes in to a freefall.  :knuppel2:

I will never figure out pitching. I have a 9.82 ERA and a WHIP over 2.00 but have 2 wins and a save.

I think this is going to be a close match. What is the tie breaker if you end up in a tie?

I don't know for sure, but, I believe the tiebreaker is higher seed advances.

It's based on who had the better head-to-head record during the season.  The winner of the regular season head-to-head series advances.

What a tough series. 4-3 going into Sunday with 2 categories separated by 2 points or less and runs, wins and steals tied. I can't believe my slow ass runners and crappy pitching came through at the end.

I wouldn't mind that either, and a live draft.  I'm probably being over ambitious.

Regardless of the sport, baseball or football, I will ALWAYS prefer a live draft to auto.  I would rather live and die with the picks I made than the arbitrary rankings of who knows who...

I'm pretty sure fantasy baseball isn't a nepotism system.  Who you know has nothing to do with the shitty team yahoo gives you.  Because otherwise I'd have had a much different team then the sorry lot of losers that I ended up with this year.
