CHAMPIONSHIP WEEK

And down the stretch we come. Once again, it is proven that just because you are the #1 seed and roll absolutely everyone during the regular season, it doesn't mean the playoffs are a cakewalk. The Tallcorn Cobras finish in the top slot for the second season in a row, and the Tallcorn Cobras get knocked out in the semi's for the second season in a row. That's a tough one to swallow!

The Counselor gets his shot at the title (at the #5 seed to boot) as he'll take on Rocky Mike and The Rockpile. I'm looking forward to this one. Early word out of Vegas has Rocky Mike giving 2.5 categories. Let's see if the Sluggers of Salt Creek can rise to the occasion.

The plaque for the alternates may be down in the ladies room, but make no mistake, T-Dub and The Ger are more than willing to stake it's claim. T-Dub is trying desperetly to salvage his dignity (and get a few extra dollars) while The Ger wants to prove his SwinGERS are a force to be reckoned with. The handicappers have this one going handily to the Cobras, but then again, they were heavily favored against the Sluggers.

The fight for 7th place. Love this game, the best of the worst. The Napolean Complex Series. Both teams still contending they belonged in the upper bracket playoffs, yet they're breathing the same air as teams with .300 winning percentages. The Daddy's won the league last year, this year he's playing for 7th place. I mean, does it get any more Lindsay Lohan than this? He's like Mickey Abbot on Seinfeld...he was standing in for Punky Brewster when y'all were nothin! Nevertheless, Sin City is touting the Daddy's in this one. It'll be interesting to see if Mental Ed can pull this one out.

Finally, the 9th place game featuring yours truly. The Cornholers stock is rising, a classic late bloomer tale. Although I'm not sure how a team hitting 1 homer and driving in 9 RBI all week can win. Then you take a look at the Hot Dogs. Hanley Ramirez...hurt...Kevin Youklis...hurt...Carlos Santana...hurt...David Aardsma (my only closer)...hurt...Michael Bourn...hurt...chances of winning...hurt. Ace Rothstein has the Cornholers stealing this one in an utterly embarrassing matchup that demonstrates the calibar of teams playing for a 9th place finish.

Meanwhile Client #9 defeated Hoosier Heat to finish in 11th place (the Heat pulling up the rear in 12th). In an extremely satisfying outcome, Clark & Addison defeats #3 seed CO Yankees for a 5th place finish. #3 seed CO Yankees dip down to #6 and lose some much needed points. Such a shame (yes, I'm shaking my head in disappointment with a smile from ear to ear).

I would consider it a success to win this weeks matchup and finish the season in 9th place, after suffering all season long in loss-after-loss.

As awful as this season was there wasn't a trade to be made by my team. That's how shoddy my roster had become. Sources confirm that the Owner of the Cornholers is having a sitdown with the GM and might be looking to clear the decks.

Jim said...

There isn't a trade to by had anywhere. To be frank, GM's are too scared to make a move and would rather hold onto their players. The trade market in this league is virtually non-existent.

Upon learning of my victory in the semis I sprayed a couple cans over the wife's head, chest bumped the dog, and made a drunken pass at Susie Colber during the post game interview.

Wow is my wife pissed!

Couselor Bloomie said...

I actually made 3 trades this year unloading the likes of Carlos Pena, Carlos Quentin, Pablo Sandoval, BJ Upton, and Mike Leake.

Glad I ended up in the money or else I'd need to do a reverse mortgage to pay my transaction fees.

Now that Don Mattingly has been named Joe Torre's successor in LA will the Dodgers be relocating to West Hollywood?

Mike said...

I believe I made a minor exchange w/ Jimmy's Daddy with the swap of Joe Saunders and Stephen Drew for Jay Bruce. I had a few other hooks in the water that just did not get any legs.

I will be looking anxiously upon the championship match up this week as this league is the only one in which I have fantasy street credit. My fantasy football team has gone to the dogs early and despite my arsenal of excuses, which no one wants to hear (who could blame you), I fear that my squad could achieve Cornholer status before Thanksgiving.

PG said...

West Hollywood....very clever, sir.

Cornholers said...

Not only does Rocky Mike take a swipe at the Cornholers, but he does it during the week in which his football squad beats the Trombones by 3 points.

Seriously, a 68 point output by his squad and he's chest bumping. 32 of those points were by Anquain Boldin. Have your party friend, the Trombones will see their revenge.

Hard to watch that MNF game, watching my team actually tie Rocky Mike and then with every Cutler pass I started receiving negative points by the GB defense. Cutler giveth and GB taketh away. Fuck it, at least I won my parlay!

Mike said...

I fully expected to lose, and deserved to lose with a 68 point performance. However, I have to say that my Jay Cutler theory is still in play....put your eggs in the Cutler basket and you will get burned. He is a mustache short of being a modern day Jeff George.

Michael said...

smile all you want looking up at me in the standings...

Edward said...

The title the Franks and Daddy's are playing for is called King of the Sucks PG. I know you are envious...

Wade said...

I'm depressed, but not surprised ... congrats to the teams that don't crumble when it counts, and good luck.

PG said...

Dude, the Hot Dogs are brutal. We've have literally broken down, we're sitting on the interstate, and nobody is within 100 miles of us.

I must say it's humbling getting beat by the Cornholers. I guess this is what King Kong Bundy felt like when he got pinned by The Haiti Kid.
