Very good season. I spent a total of just 11 days in first place, the most important of which of course was the last day. Some excellent work by Ian's Newman/Kramer squad (the early leader), Chris' Bonds Bombers (a team that occupied first for about 100 days), and as usual, Hugo and his Steroid Studs #18 (who snuck into first on the penultimate day, but just missed bringing home the gold medal).

My pitching was pretty bad as of late May. I revived the pitching with deals to bring aboard Justin Verlander on June 10 (who thereafter posted 11 W's, 169 K's in 148 IP, 2.55 ERA and 0.96 WHIP) and Max Scherzer on June 11 (where he contributed 13 W's, 170 K's in 133 IP, 2.64 ERA and 0.91 WHIP), and by adding Aaron Sanchez from the FA wire (12 W's, 3.25 ERA, 1.18 WHIP).

Another move that turned out to be very valuable to my squad was dealing Marte for Yelich in May, since Yelich hit 16 HR's for the squad, had 79 RBI's and a .362 OBP. Meanwhile, Marte did not play the last month.

Losing Harvey and Ross early was killer for my pitching. Well that and only drafting one closer.

Another fun season. Imagine how much more fun it would be if half the league was active.

According to Yahoo, here are the dates that each manager was last active:

#21 - August 22
Bierbauer's Polka - September 22
Bonds' Bombers - October 3
BuccoBlast21 - October 2
Dan's DL Team - October 3
Fishing for Gold - October 3
King-Kang - October 2
Newman/Kramer 2020 - September 3
Rich's Best - September 9
Spokane Pirates - September 8
Studs onSteroids #18 - October 5
The Flying Beagles - September 4

The more active managers we have, the more competitive and fun the league is!!! Please pay attention to your teams!

Agreed. I understand losing interest when your team is floundering, but in a keeper league, plan for next year.

Pick up talented young players from the FA wire, make a deal to improve the young talent, whatever.

Keeper leagues should keep managers involved the entire season.
