By far the most competitive cycle we've seen. This thing is wide open with 2 weeks left. And dripping with story lines.

How can we not start by talking about McPeek. 10 in a row to go from 7-6 to 17-6, and in a three way tie for the lead with seven selections and 14 days remaining. Will he lose again? Can anyone stop this freight train's momentum?

Then you've got the Lead Man, winner of Phases I & II last year. Lulls the field to sleep by appearing disinterested in the first couple weeks of cycle one, only to emerge as the feared assassain we all know him to be, going 10-2 in his last 12 to ascend to fourth place, behind the three way tie atop the standings. Me, in that tie, as the defending champ of '08 Phase II, which I won with a record shattering 24-6 record. And then a host of competitors with 7 or 8 losses, all whose margins for error are slim, but victory still attainable.

Field went 3-2 yesterday, including wins for the red hot Peeker and Pipe with the Giants, who won a frenetic affair with the Nats 11-7, despite two more home runs for Ryan Zimmerman, the game of baseball's next superstar. eagles24 tried to pick the White Sox, but already had done so.

Full slate tonight. About 8 favorites of -140 or greater to choose from. Could be a big day for the pool, with many of the contenders trying to notch another win. Every win you can put on the board the rest of the way out is a big one. Losses are like daggers in the heart.

Six hundred bones and forum pride on the line fellas.

11 in a row tonight Peeks. I'm feelin it for ya. No way you lose with how hot you are right now.

My Rockies pick was just a diversionary tactic. Piggybacking your last seven picks so we can take it to the tiebreaker at 24-6.

I won't even get into the fact that your name at the top of the standings is ridiculously out of place. All of those 17-6 records and 'Swerb' is the 3rd one on the list alphabetically.

You're just pissing off Eckersley, me and the portion of baseball gods that gamble on the games. That's a lot going against you. :bunny:

Not to mention the Rockies selection. ;-) ;) :wink:

Come strong or step aside. That was the message sent on Moving Day Monday as the field went a blistering 11-3 yesterday.

And how can we not start with Brian "Nostradamus" McPeek. Eleven wins in a row, and really, at this point, there are no superlatives strong enough to explain the prognostication abilities of this gambling God. At this point, I think we'd all be surprised if he lost another game in this phase. 24-6 appears like a virutal lock.

Swerb and Pipe won with the Rockies, who destroyed the Houston Astros behind the arm of Ubaldo Jimenez and the bat of Ian Stewart. The Fight Dr and Bill Henry also notched huge wins to stay right in the thick of things.

Eckersley suffered a tough loss with the Diamondbacks, and fell from a tie for 1st to 5th place in the process ... evidence of just how damaging single losses are when you get this deep into a phase. Ironically, it was the bat of Brandon Phillips that did him in, as the Reds went into Arizona and beat the D-Backs behind the bat of Phillips and the arm of Micah Owings, a former D-Back. The other two losers were cpawonder and Action Boy, both who lost when the Red Sox went west and beat Jered Weaver and the Angels. The losses were likely fatal, ending any realistic hopes for a Phase I title for both competitors.

Full slate tonight, but no favorites on the board of more than -140/-150. And most of the games are pretty close to pick ems.

Wow, the Angels are the latest team to stick a knife in me with late game collapses. The count is now 6 on leads blown in the 8th or 9th. That being said it wasn't meant to be for Phase I. Good luck to the leaders as this will be fun to watch!

Peeker is 15-1 since his 3-5 start.....that is impressive.

Swerb - any early indication on when Phase II may start? Thanks.

Action Boy, at this point, I would put it right up there with the invention of the automobile and John Wooden winning 10 titles in 12 years with the UCLA Bruins in the late 60's and early 70's. I'm a greater man for having known McPeek, and there's no way he loses another game.

2 week break is the norm. Have to verify, but think Monday, June 8th.

You should be thankful for Jason Motte and George Sherrill and a couple other blown saves that Action Boy shared with me. This would be ova or Action Boy and me would be PMing about chops. And you still have Oakland, Texas and the Nats left. Let's see how you do playing those 7-2 and 10-6 offsuit hands :lmfao: :bag:

BTW- In your results from today you have Lead Pipe winning with the A's. I think he won with the Rockies.

Swerb has some tough matchups, but I wouldn't bet against him as he won Phase III last year after I started 17-1. Part collapse on my end, but a great close by Swerb. Best of luck to the both of you and the rest of the remaining contenders.
