Don't bother me at all JP, I encourage all players to play out the string. Keeping historical W-L totals for this pool, plan on doing three phases every season going forward.

Good to know on playing out the pool. I already knew that baseball was a bitch to pick, but this pool has humbled me even more so......it has been awhile since I have been eliminated so early from contention.

Good luck to the rest of the players playing for the top spot. I look forward to Phase III.

Effin Valverde, you gotta be kidding me.

Just like that, a month of "grinding" brings my run to a crashing halt.

Can't afford anything other than perfection. And I need a Mets-like collapse from about 17 other guys. Not to mention I'm working with narrow margins out of need.

The narrowest of all margins for tonight.

Washington Nationals. On the road. Against a former Cy Young winner.

Can I make a side deal and sell my entry? 1 game back with 2 to play for me and 4 to play for Lead Pipe.

Any takers on a chance to win a $720 pot?

Anything can happen Carolina. Granted, with the two teams you have left it's not all good, but you still have a solid shot.

Texas will be a tough one. I think Philly has ATL at home w/ Hamels on the mound, so that's at least a favorable position. Thankfully he has Texas left also, and maybe Florida & San Fran can slip up. Boston's a sub .500 road team and no lock either with a home series against the Yanks to close this contest.

I couldn't agree more Peek.....a little shocked the number isn't higher. Lackey stands to get well after a few bad starts.

A win today by The Lead Man ensures a tie at worst.

In the event of The Lead Man and Carolina Tribe both finishing at 22-8, the two combatants will both pick every game on the board in the final day of the pool, this coming Monday. The picks will be submitted to me by email.

Better record in all of Monday's games would win. In the event the tie is still not broken, they would each take down $360.

Matt Cain cost me double today. Not only does it hurt my chances in this contest, but he decides to throw his 2nd career shutout when I play him in fantasy baseball.
