Won the finals in 6 a few nights ago. Led the league in BA and OBP. Not bad for a team that didn't skimp on pitching.

At least for today, the two best teams in the league are in the West.

Sweeping the Dodgers (outscoring them 26-11 in the series) was very nice, considering how hot FUDU's team has been lately.

Misunderstanding. I swept GHCS, to stay even with FUDU, who has been doing well lately.

Shit.

Nowhere near as good a news as originally thought.

I'm good peeks thanks for asking.

I'd give you a screen shot of my strat page right now, but I don't want to be called an "elite humble brag".

Variance setting in on the Dodgers. Three guys were hurt in one game, including catcher Charles Johnson. Unfortunately the computer did not replace him with Mike Piazza -- although Lenny Harris may actually be as good a catcher as Piazza.

My pitching has been very strong, but admittedly it is hilarious when you look at my rotation in regards to names/ages/salaries.

Anyone heard from motherscratcher, is he alright, I hope?

He told me over beers watching March Madness last week that he's playing 10 Strat teams right now.

I have 9 teams right now.

1 just rolled their way into the semis. 7 in midseason. 1 in preseason (where waivers run in 2 hours and some asshole hasn't even read the trade offer I sent him yet).

Yes, I'm a loser.

Fuck it. Shit is addicting.

I'm not sure I like this mystery card thing much. It drives me nuts that I can't look at and pick specific cards.

(And a hearty Eff You to Al's forthcoming "what?")

I'm not much of a fan of mystery card either (IMO it takes away a significant part of the skill needed to put together a legit team and then manage it), although doing it with you guys is at least entertaining somewhat.

It cannot be overstated how addicting this is once you get both feet in the water.

I'm sitting on two credits that are daring my to jump into other leagues right now, and hopefully I'm looking at two more free ones in about 2 weeks.

peeker now that you're done playing cops & robbers and March Madness is over, you can focus your attention back on strat and put your rooting interest back to good use.

Safe to say we're down to 5 teams fighting for 4 spots, maybe only 4 teams.

The Indians are into the first full week of the season, but as far as these 12 men are concerned, baseball season started more than a month ago.
And on a recent game night, it sure sounded like baseball season.
"Jim's trying to steal home! ... He's out!"
"Chipper's up, two down, second and third ... strikeout."
"Two-out bingo. C'mon Big Papi."
Such banter emanates from members of the World Baseball Association, a 12-team Strat-O-Matic baseball league whose first pitch was thrown in 1980 -- back when Mike Hargrove was at first base and Rick Manning played center for the Indians.
League managers come from all walks of life and Northeast Ohio locales. Every other Thursday, in a 100-game schedule that runs from late February to when a World Series champion is finally crowned in September, they share in the joy of a game and each other.
"We all love baseball," said Mike Meissner, 57, of Fairview Park, the league's founder and commissioner. "That's what we have in common."
Strat-O-Matic is based on statistically accurate Major League Baseball player cards and the probability of dice. When combined, devoted players say they get swept up in the realism and strategy they don't find in video games or fantasy leagues.
Boys usually pass through "Strat" on their way to routine and responsibility. But somewhere along the way, the managers of the WBA decided they didn't want to let it go.
