This is how baseball works, isn't it? You just get to send down whoever you want, whenever you want? Sure, Shoeless may have completely disrepected Tom Glavine by putting his old ass in long relief (2), but I'm sure he won't come back to haunt him forever. And what's a 'waiver'?
Recaps. In league 1, the wild card NY Meteorpolertwains that I left last season to the computer won the world series, and we're looking at the offseason. Great. You guys let the computer win the WS. Really? I mean, I knew I was a good GM, but come on. It looks like Lilli and Quentin were both dropped by the U-God owned CHW, and we can only assume it's because of his angst at the current real world team. Or because he finished 51 games out. Kansas City continues to completely destroy all opposition in the Central. In the East, the Toronto Cinderellas pulled out a stunning amount of wins, despite their overall players' ratings. Unfortunately they ran out of gas 1 win away from a world series win. Oakland came out of the weak West, and was destroyed in the playoffs.
In the NL, the normally dominant rhythm sExpos were quickly snuffed out in 3 games in the NLDS by the Marlins, but since the Marlins are actually the Cubs, they were unable to finally win a pennant and were once again killed by the miracle Mets. Try as you might candiru, you still manage the Cubs. The LA Ramblers, led by an ageless Cliff Lee, finished with an NL high 103 wins, but were unable to jump over the Mets in the playoffs. Is league 1 dying? Thoughts?
In the flourishing League 2, we are in June of 2008, and the trade deadline is rapidly approaching. In the NL, the young Florida team led by threerunhomer continues it's dominating dynasty, with the lowest payroll in the majors. We're all waiting for those damn kids to start demanding some money from that team. Houston's young team is ripening finally, and has taken the lead in a tight Central race. It'll be interesting to see this team in a year or two. E-gus's D-Bags continue to lead a strong West, thanks to his ridiculous team OPS of 0.791. In related news, the entire state of AZ has converted to Q!, a religion worshipping a HEALTHY baseball player and his magical Q!nicorn.
In the AL, Baltimore has jumped out with the East lead with a very impressive rotation led by Brett Meyers. But Tampa Bay is coming for you treehouse, I swear it. Also, does anyone know if there is a "Demolish Stadium & Build New One" button? I've got about $100mil in cash and nothing to do with it. Shoeless is holding the Piranhas above an unimpressive Central, but it's only a matter of time before the entire state shuts down and the team moves to Quebec. The LA Angels lead the impressive West with a killer pitching staff, which is surprising, as the game doesn't have virtual Gatorade coolers for Zambrano to take his rage out on. Or maybe that's why they're winning.
