In the midst of the Fan Orgasmatron that was Wild Card Wednesday last night, The Good Phight Fantasy Baseba'al League wrapped up its 2011 season. With league expansion that went to an 18-team format, competition was fierce and free agent replacement parts scarce as the season wore on. Riding high atop the league for much of the season, then consolidating and expanding his insurmountable second-half lead with a dominant final two weeks, Walcott took the league title this year. So please tip your hats to our new champion, and congratulate him. Blogs fly forever!
The thrilling battle for second place mirrored the real wild card race, as j reed, FuquaManuel, and Wet Luzinski went down to the final night before j reed came out with the silver. I won bronze, and FM won whatever it is people who come in fourth win. (I believe it's an airline bottle of a new brand of rum. There's bound to be a non-empty one up here in the attic somewhere.) While I'm at it, hearty thank yous to league commishes FuquaManuel and RememberThePhitans for stepping up this springtime so we could have extra baseball to distract us when we weren't paying attention to baseball.
