Jahiegel and Cynical have 129 games, and need 21 over these last 3 weeks/picks, so we'll see if there are losses needed to get to 150.

Our second best week (59-21, collectively, with a couple of 6-1 teams) since week 5 (69-23, .750)

And can we all stay above .500?!

I want to apologize to yankeetripper, because I failed to catch when I updated my spreadsheets in previous weeks when he repeated teams (weeks 19 and 21 repeated his week 5 and 4 picks, respectively). Sucks being the last name on my spreadsheet, and my grid was one row too short. As those teams went 10-2 those latter two weeks, yet he is mired down by me in the standings (), I will not bother doing any reversing or correcting at this point... sorry, yt.
Hmm, guess I failed to update my sheet for those picks. Thought it was odd I still had some good teams left. Oh well.

I think I see what you were doing, but ouch... and yay to your Brewers.

Anyway, it appears to be coming down to the two who made their picks early (not often):

Code:
	Week								
Players 	24	25	26	W	L	Win %	GB	TB	COWPAT
Kid Rock	 SEA 	 MIN 	 TOR 	99	53	0.651	0	0.010	0.3900
BingBoin	 SFG 	 OAK 	 NYM 	99	54	0.647	0.5	0.066	0.3339
Jahiegel	 HOU 	 OAK 	 LAD 	91	51	0.641	3	0.001	0.3569
Cynical 	 NYY 	 MIL 	 BRS 	91	52	0.636	3.5	0.026	0.3914
Ezekial 	 SFG 	 OAK 	 PIT 	98	57	0.632	2.5	0.007	0.3542
Patience	 SFG 	 OAK 	 CIN 	94	55	0.631	3.5	0.004	0.3473
malkusm 	 SFG 	 OAK 	 PIT 	91	58	0.611	6.5	0.040	0.3782
yanktrip	 LAD 	 OAK 	 PHI 	93	60	0.608	6.5	0.018	0.3060
rekrap  	 SEA 	 NYY 	 -   	94	63	0.599	7.5	0.056	0.3638
UltAny1?	 COR 	 PIT 	 OAK 	92	62	0.597	8	0.056	0.3689
The Arby	 CHC 	 CWS 	 DET 	89	63	0.586	10	0.047	0.3933
MtySchp 	 NYM 	 KCR 	 NYY 	74	72	0.507	22	0.109	0.4538
6 different picks for the top 6 teams. 3rd and 4th place need 8 and 7 games, respectively, this week to "qualify" which further pressures their chances of catching up.

And some teams have really light schedules (Mets get Marlins), while others have some stiffer competition this last week.

Best of luck!

I'd like to switch my week 26 to the Colorado Rockies. Even though they face the Brewers to finish, at least they're still showing up, as opposed to the Pirates.

Thanks!

The Jays come back again last night. Their last 4 vs. O’s have been incredible.

Mets and Red Sox lost, so KR extends his lead...

I figured it was the only way I'd finish Also, apparently seems like a good plan overall considering how I've been doing.
