It’s September 17th and in a few minutes the Royals will tackle the Tigers. Tiger fans are interested due to having a magic number. Royals fans are also interested because they get to watch the brightest light in their 09′ season toe the rubber in Zack Greinke. I am REALLY interested because I am trying to win a fierce battle in AL Only Tout Wars with Lawr Michaels of creativesports.com. Lawr is currently 0.5 points ahead of me with just a little over two weeks to go. I’ve lost count of how many times the lead has changed, some nights is has changed a handful if not more which is why every single at bat, every single pitch and every single break is vital. I got one such break last nightÂ in Boston. Lawr and I are in first and second in wins separated by one win.
Joe Saunders who Lawr has was cruising and even though the Red Sox made a game of it late Saundo was still in line for the win until my new best friend Kevin Jepsen decided to go poopy in the bed. I laughed I cried and then I begged my players to score some runs!!! You see this battle between Lawr and I is not just about Wins it’s about almost every category. Matthew Berry of ESPN may be 9th overall but in the runs category we keep going back and forth. Right now he has me by one run which equals one point which would equal first place, get my drift? This is why it’s so important all owners put their best possible team on the floor no matter what place they are in because it matters. I could write all day about other near misses and great turns of events that have me going to bed in first and waking up in second and vice-versa, but we still have two plus weeks to go. Excruciating.
I’ll be back again with more ins and outs of our battle this is just the teaser……………………Siano
