I missed the Championship by one, yes ONE, strikeout. It would have tied us at 5-5, but I would have gone to the championship because of better record.
What hurt was Carlos Martinez and Huston Street both getting injured the past two days. But that's part of the game. He had Zack Greinke and Masahiro Tanaka hurt.
I would have taken an extra SP with my last pick, but figured it would be better chance to win with both hitters and pitchers. The weekly H2H projections had me winning 4-1 or 3-2 with hitters. Pitching 3-2. Well, it depended on how my settings were. If I set it for the entire season, my opponent would win. I set it to 30-days (then 14-days and 7-days) and thought I could win 6-4. However, my opponent got hot with his long-term NYM, Cano, Bautista and Bogaerts hitters that I could not recover enough to win anything but SB on the hitting side.
If I took an extra pitcher instead, then I could've been in the championships. Except there probably was no way I would've made that decision on Thursday. His hot hitting forced me to play my last two picks earlier than I wanted. I figured I could win ERA, WHIP and SO on the pitching side and either R or HR or both and SB on the hitting side. He burned his last three picks on SP and was able to eke out winning SO by picking up Martin Perez for the last day.
