On My Way To Victory

Two days left for my fantasy baseball league and I am well ahead of my opponent in the league finals.
As in true Yankees fashion, I am leading 136-78, over a Red Sox fan at that too.

If I can hang on to win the finals, I will advance to the World Finals and compete for a spot on the 32-team bracket.
If I do have the luck to make it on the 32-team bracket, I will be awarded with a nice $100 check and can be called one of the top 32 teams in 2007.
The winner of that tournament will receive the 2007 MLB Open Trophy and a $10,000 check.
Although that is a long shot, I will settle on winning my league finals and entering the tournament of the best teams in the Open.

As for the real Yankees, thing could not get any better. Deep into teh wild card chase, and sending up rookie Phil Hughes in his first "big" game against the Cleveland Indians,
His performance was worthy of ESPN highlights and gept the Tribe in check en route to a 6-1 victory over the AL Central leader and helped the Yankees tie for the Wild Card lead with the Seattle Mariners.
The Red Sox suffered a loss to the Orioles 6-5 lowering their lead over the Yanks to five games.

October hopefuls, remember that the Yankees were at one time nine game sout of the wild card, one of the hardest playoff spots to reach, and an even larger deficit in the East.

    Impressive. My holding onto Cano and Matsui through the early part of the season killed my MLB Open chances.

    Oh, and Puljols playing like Mientkiewitcz for a few months didn't help...

    Anyways, the real-life Yankees seem to be getting better - Kei Igawa looks like he's on his way out (Padres will take anybody) - now to pray that the Yankees can actually GET something from the Padres barren farm system

    I have Cano on my team and him turning around his season really helped me out in the Open.
