    Default 5 Games to go

    In the East

    Pacer Fan in AZ
    Rcarey
    Mourning
    Jose Slaughter
    Roaming Gnome
    Peck

    Burnzone gets a win in his next game, just waiting for it to be posted, so he's in as well.

    Displaced Knick is having a hard time shaking Indy Dave. DK splits his next 2 games but ID gets 2 wins. DK is ahead in the WL department but ID has a higher average so if they finish tied the 8th spot goes to Indy Dave.

    In the divisional races: Rcarey has the edge on Pacer Fan in AZ. Rcarey is up by a game & while PFiA splits his next two, Rcarey wins both of his.

    Mourning wins the White division when his win in game 52 gets posted.

    Looks like 2 guys new to our league get divisional banners. Nice job guys!

    Out West

    Kerosene
    #7
    Pacer Tom
    Gyron
    Diamond Dave
    Dr. Badd
    Grundzel
    Doug

    Doug gets the final spot after his win in the next game is posted. So the 8 teams in the west are decided, we just need to figure out who plays who.

    Kerosene had the Gold division wrapped up about a week ago.

    The Blue division comes down to #7 vs. Gyron. They play each other in game 52 & its too close to call. #7 is up 3 games but trails Gyron in game 52 so the banner is still up for grabs.

    Jose, you run a great league. I love these little updates you do...they're very much appreciated.

    It looks like my team is peaking at the right time. Now, if I can get Al Jefferson back from injury, we're playing ball.

    Looks like my guys have floated a couple of stinkers down the stretch. I'm proud of them, though. They fought back, played hard and at least made it a little interesting.......

    My first pick was a guy that never played, and I traded my second pick for some waiver wire players. Zeke ain't got nothin' on me.

    The key is, can you improve next season?

    I would say, you'd almost have to, there is very little else you could do.

    Not funny.

    I wonder if there's still room on Tim's and UB's bandwagon...

    Yeesh - thank to Michael Pietrus and Shane Battier I can kiss my two remaining goals away this season - finishing above .500 and over a 200 pt average.

    It's one thing to have bad games but 0 fantasy points in 32 minutes??? And Battier gave me 8 in 35.

    OTOH, everyone having bad games at the same time isn't the worst thing in the world - hopefully they'll get that out of their systems. But I'd hoped that games like that were a thing of the past.

    I got "Grant Hilled" or "Rafer Alstoned" because I read that Robert Swift would be out 3-4 weeks and so I dropped him the next day, right before reading that he had a special mask built and and would instead return Tuesday.

    Of course I got priority 2.

    Well Jake has been similar lately, and either would play only when Shaq is hurt.

    Evans got traded within a day of me dropping him, because Seattle wouldn't play him ... offcourse, he's bound to be playing now and to add insult to injury ... the team I am most likely to face in the first round picked him up

    Well, atleast I am not facing Reggie Evans in the first round that was a relief, however facing Peck now means it's bound to be very tough aswell.

    I would like to support carey's point with regards to Jose and his little updates and so during the season, I really like reading them.

    To everyone who didn't make the play-offs, sorry for that, but better luck next year. It's bound to be interesting when the new season starts.

    To the other teams that did make it ... goodluck (except when you play me ) and have fun .

    I finished 19-37, and my first pick never played a single damn game.

    Shade, it won't make you feel any better, but....

    Ginobili isn't doing me much good lately. 24 minutes and 11 fantasy points last night. I've had to drop him to 4th guard because he's been bad for 2 weeks and Ben Gordon has slumped too.

    For 2 months I've been averaging well over 230 and then in the 1st playoff game I scored 204.

    I'm hoping I don't face Cedar City since he has a healthy Camby now and he put up a goofy good number already in game 1 and would have me beat by a mile.

    It looks like Cedar City will pass Holden Beach and I will play Holden Beach in the playoffs...

    and I will lose game 1.

    not good...

    I lost my last 2 games (ugly, ugly, ugly). You won't be playing me.

    Whoever I play (pretty sure it's rcarey) my first game's not bad.

    Huh? What'd Peck do? I was sure I was the 8 seed. Now I have to figure out what Mourning's team # is ...

    I really wish I knew whose @ss I was about to kick.

    You guys are right, I screwed up..... again.

    It should be Displaced Knick in 7th, Peck in 8th.

    I checked my numbers again & I somehow switched your averages.

    In other words ... I think it's me DK.

    Ugh ... I'm 0.2 behind .... 235 pts to 235.2 pts . DK you seem to be my "angstgegener", I think I only have won one game against you the whole season, lost 2 games with less then 5 points and lost one blowout.

    Thx Mr. Dalembert ... those -2 points are bound to help me. Atleast Rasheed and Lebron are keeping me in, I need GOOD games from Jamison and Jefferson at Forward and either Barbosa or Miles are going to have to score well at Guard if I want to get this second one.

    If that's the case you'll probably kick my ass in OT.

    I'd like to thank Tmac & Andre Miller for picking this time of the year to be average.

    Looks like I'm going to end the season the way I started it, sucking.

    Oh well, in all honesty I am probably more proud of my team this year than I have been in years past because a lot of my team is waiver wire pickups & I actually picked a couple of good ones this year.

    No disrespect to Doug but that would be a major upset & no need to tell you this Kerosene but you are right there on the edge.

    Wow, I just checked the series between you guys. Talk about close!

    In a 7 game series, the best team will almost always emerge victorious...but in a 5 game series you see a lot more upsets then you would normally expect.
