No, I’m not going to link Doors songs or talk about how I wonder if when they started the motion picture company, they didn’t think they would last as long as they did. I’m also not going to talk about RCL strategy or how awesome Sky is when dealing with the general public. [Jay’s Note: The interesting part is that we’ve had contributors to go on and write at FanGraphs while FanGraphs has had contributors go on and write for us…] Instead I will use Charles Bradley’s (he is sorta new-ish but sounds like he recorded this 45 years ago in the 20th century) song titles to write the rest of this opener. This is strictly reserved for you, the RCL players who support all that is this, the Update. We’ve had our heartaches and pain this year and if you think you got the gold then you better check yourself for we have no time for dreaming. I’ll slip away now for this world is yours…and because no razzball contributer will be winning the whole effing thing.

The big winner is our first team to hit above .400 this year. Congratulations Flying Mile High, you haven’t been playing at all this year. I looked at this team and they still have Waino, Porcello, Mesoroco, and Morneau in the line-up and thats not even all their DL’d players. As usual I tip my cap to all of you regardless if you are playing or not. You made the list!
RCL TOP 20: WEEK 20
This is the best around!… For the season… so far. Do you want to be Daniel Larusso? Then you got to beat all the Cobra Kai’s and win the
All Valleys RCL Championship. Word around the office is that the grand prize is Sky jumping out of a cake in your living room and doing a strip tease to the the tune of Moment of Truth by Survivor. The table below contains the rank, team name, league name, RCL points, League Index and League Points.
- The big change this week is the FCL’s Cram It cracking the top-three. Razzball’s frequent commenting catcher question hating Tampa Bay fantasy lovin’ Mets fan is on the cusp of sliding into second just 0.13 behind the backdoor. I want to take a moment to commend this guy, he got his a** handed to him last year in the FCL and has turned it around this year in a major way. Well done fellow hater.
- Nick the Dicks reign in the top five ends this week as his Dickeys are sliding down to 8th. Money Ballers and Hardy Bombers also took a big dive dropping 8 and 10 spots respectively.
- If memory serves me well, it usually doesn’t, I think this is the second time we have had an owner of two teams in the top 10. Backdoor sliders is crushing it this year. You need to come into the comments and chat us up.
- To give you an idea of how close this race is just look at the difference between 10th and 19th. 3.61 points is a sliver in here. Hey look! I’m in 15th!
Making Trades and Taking Names
The trade dead line has come and gone and now all we have left is criticisms… and the waiver wire. 15 trades went down the final week with some notable big pitcher for hitter deals. Greinke got swapped for Abreu in Cougs R us and Dozier got moved for Arrieta in Jay’s Family and Friends. The last trade of the year went down in Tehol’s league where Osuna was swapped out for Morales. Speaking of Morales, did any of you know he is 4th in RBI’s on the year? Before I wrap this up I have one question for Cougs R Us, why was the Robertson for Iwakuma deal vetoed?
