    2017 Season Discussion

    Saint Paul sits 1 GB of Cleveland for the second playoff spot in the Eastern division. If we miss the playoffs we can clearly blame our poor head to head record against Cleveland. We have gone 2-12 against Cleveland.

    Of course Saint Paul has a negative run differential and is basically the same team I had last year that went 68-92. I'm pretty happy to be competing for a playoff spot, even if I don't know what made this year different.

    Bruce Ross finished the season with a ridiculous 389:81 GO:FO ratio. That is 82+% on the GOs!

    After going 10-4 in the regular season against Cleveland, Kentucky was lulled to sleep by the Naps, to the tune of a sweep. Yikes. Hats off to Cleveland. Good luck the rest of the way.

    Well shoot, I was so close to coaxing a sub .500 Pilots team to the World Series. Just couldn't that that one road victory.

    In other news, if you want to call it that since it seems to happen all the time (really it doesn't, but it seems like it does to me), Boston beat me out in the divisional again. This time, it wasn't as close and doesn't even make me feel even a little satisfied with the season, other than possibly the 90 wins helps maintain the win average.

    Congrats to Milwaukee and Cleveland, both teams with their first conference championship and World Series appearance. Good luck to both owners as they try to capture their first title here in Tilted Tables.

    Maybe I can teach you how to win on the road, if you can teach me how to win at home.

    First of all, great jobs for Cleveland and Milwaukee to reach the World Series! This was the first time in seven seasons that Boston and/or Phoenix didn't make it. Congrats to ClintWilley and the Naps for winning it all.

    Congrats to Cleveland!

    Another disappointing ending to the season in Phoenix. Changes will need to be made. But we're starting to have our concerns about the course of the league as last season was the 1st time in nearly 20 seasons that we basically couldn't trade our draft picks.
