    That's a good point... if you put those 3 up against my 4 (including Riley) then you could argue Albany's staff is actually better. And the offenses are quite similar in terms of overall production, Albany with better average/OBP and Charleston with more power. I guess that is the risk with building a power-heavy lineup, if you don't get the homers then you're probably not going to score many runs. At the end of the day I would rather play a game where the massive favorite sometimes falls... just hate that it happened to me this time

    Definitely true....and to your point, if Albany goes on to win the title this year, it will be their 4th with an 80-something win team. On the other hand, the last 5 times Albany has won over 100 games, they haven't even made it to the Series -- including 2011, when the Polecats went 113-47 and got swept in the first round.
