’19 Fantasy Baseball Week 23 (Playoffs)

fckingsavages

After losing 9-0 to defending league champions ItsRyneNotRyan in the final week of the regular season, we drew the same matchup in the first week of the playoffs. Much like the week prior, the champions rolled into the finals of the consolation bracket without much a fight from us.


TRANSACTIONS

We have no way to tell whether we were liked or disliked as a team. After the playoffs started and we had all but given up on the season, we made some drastic cuts that really ticked a bunch of managers off.

On Monday, September 9th we cut ties with Texas shortstop Elvis Andrus, Toronto shortstop Bo Bichette, and Chicago Cubs outfielder Nicholas Castellanos.  In their places, we added New York Yankees pitchers, Luis Severino and Dellin Betances.

Shortly after that, we dropped Washington third baseman Anthony Rendon for Yankees relief pitcher Chad Green.

After Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez exited a game with a groin injury, we were quick to add Austin Romine to our starting lineup.

Weekly Move Total: 4/4 

Season Move Total: 49/60



MATCHUP AND SCORES

The Savages put up more of a fight in their playoff matchup. We didn’t get shut out or blown out. We also held a series lead for three out of the four days. The final outcome could have gone either way. What hurt us was New York Yankees weekend series against the less than stellar Toronto Blue Jays. The Jays took two out of three, which crippled our team in all categories across the board.

PLAYOFF BRACKET

The first and third-place teams will battle it out for the championship. Meanwhile, the fifth and sixth place team will duke it out for who finishes as the highest team in the consolation division.


THE BENCH PLAYERS

There is absolutely no proof that we conceded the matchup to the defending champions. If you peel back the numbers and look at our bench players, one could quickly point out that conspiracy holds some merit. 

If we had paid closer attention to starting lineups, we would have tie two additional categories (runs and RBIs) and lost the matchup 4-2. It could have gone down as one of the closest battles in fantasy baseball playoff history.

Yahoo Fantasy continued to compile our season totals, although the regular season had already concluded. For statistical purposes, we decided to break up our team stats and see what the final numbers would look like. Our playoff totals are in yellow, while the combined totals are in blue.
