Epic Phillie 30-20-0 .600 1
Baloo's Cubs 25-22-3 .530 4.5
Maelstrom Kingpins 21-26-3 .450 8.5

The top three teams in the Mickey division appear to be striving to reach some consistent level of mediocrity. The Hittin' Mickeys are becoming easier to spot having taken over first place the past few weeks. Their old nemesis, the Splash Mountaineers, have made a steep climb in recent weeks and soon hope to reach their laughing place without getting all wet. They are joined by Mickey's Steamboats and their solid, but monotone, team. THe last place team, the Yak 'n Yankees, were lost in the mountains of Nepal for the first few weeks, but their sherpa giude has thankfully returned them safely to the Fantasy website.

The Goofy Division features three tems with below .500 records. Jungle(Nelson) Cruz has sucessfully fended off a tribe of head hunters and corny jokes from tour guides to take control of first place. The Gray Sox and their all-Goofy roster are only just below .500 and are hoping for a little "How to" success from their friends on the Blue Sox. The BLT Goats are nipping on their heels (as goats are known to do) but still have not produced any goat-flavored bacon. Goofy Hustle is right in the middle of the dance there as well and you should not bet against them making a charge.

The Donald division appears to contain the powerhouse teams this year with 3 teams above .500. PhineastoEzratoGus is making full use of their "First-place-inator" so far. Epic Phillie is within just a single brush-stroke of first place and is also the only team in the league without a tie - whatever that means. Baloo's cubs are also going strong and, hopefully, will not resort to their lazy ways. The Maelstrom Kingpins have some rough seas ahead if they want to compete in this division.
The BLT Goats are getting ready to make a move - to the bottom. 3 on the DL and Marmol as my best RP. At least I can blame my stupidity on a power outage during the draft. That's my story ......

Uh, Norm, I was on a ship in the Atlantic Ocean during the draft. I seem to be doing OK.

Really, I dropped something off my desk onto power strip and had two autopicks before I could log back on. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Playoffs Are Here

OK, it is playoff time for Fantasy Baseball. Our defending champs, the Splash Mountaineers, had a strong surge at the end to squeak into playoffs and get the fifth seed ahead of their nemesis, the Hittin' Mickeys. Not sure if they can ride this wave of momentum through the playoffs or end up crashing to earth and getting all wet. They will be facing Jungle Nelson Cruz in the first round whose team has fought through elephants and headhunters to arrive in this place.

PhineastoEzratoGus will be using their playoff-inator in their matchup against the Hittin' Mickeys whose team is disappearing faster than bacon and Dole Whips at a Disney Dad convention.

Epic Phillie and Mickey's Steamboats earned top seeds and byes in the first round as they were consistently the best teams all year.

Good luck to all. Here is the bracket:


Quarterfinal

(1) Epic Phillie
Bye



(4) JUNGLE (Nelson) CRUZ

vs

(5) Splash Mountaineers



(3) PhineastoEzratoGus

vs

(6) The Hittin' Mickeys


(2) Mickey's Steamboats
Bye


There are also Consolation brackets posted on the web site, so be sure to set your lineups.

Good luck to all!

vs.

(2) Mickey's Steamboats


There is also a nemesis battle for 5th place:

Also, we have the consolation bracket/seeding as follows:

Semifinal

(11) Maelstrom Kingpins

(9) Gray Sox

Congratulations to Jungle (Nelson) Cruz on their Championship for the 2012 Disney Dad's Fantasy Baseball season!!



They capped off their fine season with a big 6-4 win in the championship over PhineastoEzratoGus who overcame a slow start in the final to make it close in the end. Great job guys!!



In Third Place, the top seed Epic Phillie rebounded from their semi-final defeat with a convincing 8-0 win over Mickey's Steamboats.



As mentioned before, the Hittin' Mickeys won their 5th place game over their nemesis (and last year's champ) the Splash Mountaineers.



The BLT Goats finished strong and took 7th place over the Gray Sox. The Maelstrom Kingpins won a tough battle for 9th place over Baloo's Cubs. Finally, Goofy Hustle beat the Yak 'n Yankees to claim 11th place.



Thanks everyone for participating this year and here's looking forward to next season!!



Chris

Chris, are you planning to run the baseball league again this year?

I know we still have a few weeks, but I've been getting ready for a draft in another league tomorrow night, so I'm starting to get baseball on the brain.

I'd be willing to do it if nobody else wants to.

No activity here in a couple of days. Do we even have enough people interested in playing Fantasy Baseball this year to get something together?

Well, the interest seems to be a little tepid this year. Haven't heard from Chris in a couple of days and nobody else is talking about it. Unless the interest picks up, I doubt there's much point in having a league.

Last year the interest was tepid as well. Very few teams even participated in the draft as most let it Autopick. I can grant you commish access, but there just doesn't seem much interest compared to football.
