This one went down to the wire. After maintaining a lead through the first half of the season, buddahead9 pulled a Pirates on us and dropped out of contention. I took the lead for a while, but then began to trade back and forth with Athletix Man, who took a 1-point lead with one series to go, and then stayed on top with a strong final showing.
Cartwright and weenmAN deserve credit for staying right in it. Also rhymeswithelephant for his 8 wins, and nateh37 for exceeding the GOG average of even the leaders.
There were also some very strong second half showings. Torrey's Tacos and humanoid7 were both late starters who jumped right in and didn't miss a beat. Ultimately, and perhaps predictably, Athletix Man also led the post-ASB scoring.
Many, many thanks to the stalwart GOG-masters who never missed a beat - posting GOG's the night before every series. Special recognition to GoAs, CmdrKhraanik, and weenmAN.
It was a great year, on AN, in the GOG-land, and of course in the AL West. Sorry that we didn't make it through Detroit, cuz we all would have loved the chance to destroy the Fankees. Next year, ok? Countdown to Spring training!!
