With the influx of "talent" to the Right Rail lately, we've had a hard time keeping these threads visible. Anyway, where were we?
In league one, with just about a week remaining, the top spots in four of the six division are all wrapped up, with the exceptions being in the AL Central and West. The race between the Caesars and American Giants for their division is tight and the Carmines are nipping at the heels of the loser for the wild card spot. Should make for a really interesting finish. The AL West, however is an abomination, and should be demoted to the National League for their subpar effort. Speaking of the Junior Circuit, there is a pretty good dust-up in progress between Chicago, Milwaukee, New York and Atlanta for the final playoff spot. With the AL West being as piss poor as it is, there are ten teams in all still vying for a chance to play in the BMO second season.
In league two, we've just about wrapped up our first season and Arizona and Anaheim will play for the league's first championship. Arizona allowed just 6 runs in their 4 game domination of St. Louis, meanwhile the Angels have played the maximum amount of games this postseason, having gone the distance against Minnesota in the first round and Oakland in the CS. Doesn't matter how you got there, though, just that you arrived. It should be a low scoring series between these two teams as both teams did a fantastic job shutting down opponents during the regular season (Angels 2nd in the AL in RA and Arizona 1st overall in run prevention).
With both seasons winding down, the offseasons are upon us and with them will come the draft, free agency and the trade window reopening. Should be an interesting week. Thanks for playing, and if you have any questions feel free to message me in game.
One last note, we're still looking for players to take Cincinnati in both leagues, and Pittsburgh will be coming open in league 1 as well. Additionally, Colin has been conspicuously absent (17 days since last login), despite the fact that he's a regular contributor to the site, so if anyone wants Oakland, I'd be happy to bump him out and plug you in.
