Here’s how I’m doing in my various fantasy leagues:
AUBL (Yahoo friends baseball league): The Buckhead Green Sox are in second place after a 6-5 defeat this week. The Sox gradually moved from fourth to first place, but this week’s mediocre performance opened up the lead to rival (and father) OBL’s Wombats. The recent showdown between the Sox and the Wombats ended in a 6-6 tie. A first-round playoff bye is almost assured.
Yahoo public league: The Buckhead Blue Sox lead the league by 12 games. There’s not much else to say.
KCFA3 (college league): The annual draft started this weekend as the Missouri Tigers drafted four people that 99.9% of Americans have never heard of and neither have 95% of college football fans. The hard part about a college draft is that research is a bear (119 teams) and even the ‘stars’ last for three years at most. You’re constantly reworking the team.
AUFL (local NFL league): After last weekend’s draft all I’ve done is reject a potential trade of backup kickers. The season starts two weeks from Thursday.
Zealots 17 (NFL dynasty league): I have to cut my roster down to 53 players by two weeks from today. My probable cuts are Maurice Hicks, Todd France, Teyo Johnson, Craphonso Thorpe, and Kelly Washington.
Z34 (Commish of this league): Two owners haven’t ‘signed in’ yet, and other than that I have to cut seven guys in two weeks. You know you have a fantasy sports problem when it’s hard to cut the 54th guy on a team where you only start 17.
Look at that, ma, the White Sox won! They scored six runs in an inning yesterday. In the month of August the Sox have scored six runs in a game twice. This 7-11 month has not been pretty. A win in the upcoming Twins series should get them on track to clinching the division in mid-September.
