This would make it the third (or fourth, can never remember) straight year of reaching the World Series in my private Yahoo! fantasy baseball league. This league means more to me because my opponents are much more knowledgeable than the average fantasy baseball player.
Of course, I still haven’t won the league despite my skill at managing my teams. I feel like the Atlanta Braves. Low blow, but hey… how many consecutive division titles did that team have?
This has been an even more unbelievable season. Climbing from being a month in the cellar all the way to third place isn’t too bad. I missed second by a couple of points.
If I don’t win this year, I’ll kill myself.

The funny thing is that the trade almost fair…
