Even though week 20 technically isn’t on the books as of writing this, it is almost a mathematical impossibility that PGH Best 1 has a comeback to take us down. That would require Brandon Crawford having about 9 home runs and 23 RBI. Basically, we’re safe.
We almost need to send Yoenis Cespedes a nice box of chocolates, because his 3 homer night, where he was almost the first player to ever hit for the home run cycle, clinched it for us. Look up home run cycle – it’s pretty impressive.
It also looks like Basher is going to beat Murphy10, so we will be alone in 2nd place! But still behind Basher. These last 3 weeks are huge. We play both those teams, so those games are make or break for us making the playoffs.
With just 3 weeks left, we should load up on pitchers. Not just any pitcher though, because teams just picking up pitchers because they have 2 starts backfires because bad outings can get large negative points. Unfortunately, no good pitchers are available.
This has been a great season. It’s getting hot, and we can take this!
