I haven't said it enough: I am thrilled by a 16-game playoffs. Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot, you awesome Major League Baseball?! Why can't every MLB season be like a March Madness? Seriously: Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!
Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot, you awesome beluga whale! We have people on land over here unwilling to wear masks to protect their fellow humans, and you're willing to save our iPhones? Seriously: Whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!
You know where to find our standings (hint, below this blog post — and every blog post — we have a conveniently-titled link called "Standings"; you can also get there by clicking the big + button in the upper right of this screen).
As Mary Chapin sang in her song "Bug," sometimes you're the windshield, and sometimes you're this guy:
Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot, you big, beautiful state of Florida! How do you so consistently keep entertaining us with your off-the-charts WTF?! buffoonary and craziness? Seriously, whiskey?! Tango?! Foxtrot?!
Thanks for joining the 2020 edition of the Santa Lechuga Power League, SLPL+, the most upbeat, non-negative, positive, joyous version of our fantasy league ever! You will be happy to know:
We have 22 teams who have decided to join this stripped-down version of a league, fewer than recent seasons, which means all the lazy, apathetic, struggling owners from previous seasons are gone and the competition is more concentrated.
Given the above, this will be a tough, hard-fought, awesome season!
Our pot sits at — and will forever stay at — $550, which means our Overall Champ will rake $250 out of the pot and our Wins, HR, and K champs will get $100 each.
Our standings page is up-and-running! It's an Excel spreadsheet, so use the tabs at the bottom of the page to see how things look. If we made any mistakes with your roster, please let us know ASAP so we can fix things pronto.
