Week 22 of the OTBR Fantasy Baseball season definitely helped our confidence. We CRUSHED Basher, and are now tied with them for first place! Once again, we had the season high for points. Since we won the season series against Basher 2-1, we are technically in first place ahead of them. This week we have Murphy10…more on that in a minute.
Unfortunately, the games for Week 23 started early. Labor Day will do that to you. And unfortunately, that means we also lost our opportunity to get players or change our lineup.
It also seems in previous posts we were incorrect when we said that the top two teams in each division make the playoffs. Actually, it’s the top four teams overall, regardless of division. Team OTBR is in the playoffs, no matter what happens this week! Well done team, well done. The season starts next week.
The playoffs include us, Basher, Murphy10, and Papa. All really good teams, and it’s going to be a tough two games to take the MLB Pride league championship.
Now back to our matchup with Murphy10. Even though we’re tied for first with Basher, and Murphy10 is alone in 2nd, Murphy10 finishes above us if they beat us this week. Does it really matter if they beat us? Not really, because we’re in the playoffs anyway. But it would be nice to finish in first regardless. Consider it the President’s Trophy of Fantasy Baseball, and bragging rights.
Even though it’s too late to make any changes, we should check out the waiver wire and see if there are any quality pitchers available, preferably if they make two starts next week or the week after. Our position players are solid. But as in real baseball, it looks like pitching is going to determine the championship.
Great job Team OTBR! Get some rest and let’s get ready for the playoffs!!
