You did a fantastic job from start to finish. Your win was richly-deserved! I salute you.

The thing I love (and hate) about baseball is that it is so random and arbitrary. Of course, it's always frustrating to lose by a single point. But I loved coming down to the final day not knowing who was going to win.

Entering the final week-end, I believed it was going to come down to the Wins category. Who would have thought that the final margin of victory would be a Josh Tomlin win for CC versus a Cory Kluber non-win for SHMO. But it proves once again that the sabrmetrics don't necessarily apply to what actually happens on the field on a given day.

So, thanks to everybody for a great season and looking forward to doing it again next year!!

Thank you Bob and Geoff. Bob, you brilliantly managed your team in a great comeback. A couple more days and I surely would have lost. In fact, I thought I was toast the day Kluber and Stoman were pitching for you. The last day I was worried that I would lose my lead in whip. You are right. This is quite arbitrary, but it was a lot of fun for both of us.
I don't know who drafted my team for me, but he did a great job.
Thanks to Crosley and Rick for the work they have put in.

I dropped the ball on this one - Congrats, Steve! The Quicksteps gave it a great run until about May 2nd... :lol:
