On Yahoo!, members of the league have two options they can do when viewing individual match-ups.  The first option is talking smack to your opponent for that week from the match-up window.  You can also vote on every match-up to let it be known who you think will win that week.  A few teams have already taken advantage of both those options.

The IFB Championship!: (1) Sparland Hilltoppers vs. (7) 2010 not a Holliday

September 20, 2010 Leave a comment

After 24 exciting weeks of action, the Illinois Fantasy Baseball League has reached the penultimate match-up.  The 2010 championship will feature the Sparland Hilltoppers against 2010 not a Holliday.  A dominate run throughout the regular season that saw them capture the Reagan Division and the top record in the league continued into the playoffs.  A very cold end to the season for 2010 not a Holliday did not deter them from the championship round.  Here is how the two teams got to this point:

  • (1) Sparland Hilltopers
    • Regular season: 165-79-20
    • Reagan Division Champion
    • Defeated (8) Most Daring, 8-3-1, in the quarterfinals
    • Defeated (4) BJ Penn, 7-4-1, in the semifinals
  • (7) 2010 not a Holliday
    • Regular season: 131-115-18
    • Defeated (2) BooBooCubs, 7-4-1, in the quarterfinals
    • Defeated (3) JSloan, 6-5-1, in the semifinals
  • Previous match-ups:
    • Week 12: Sparland Hilltoppers won 8-4

Sparland Hilltoppers will be a tough out in the championship round, but a getting hot 2010 not a Holliday could be the team to do it.

Here is a look at the other match-ups for positioning:

  • 3rd place: (3) JSloan vs (4) BJ Penn
  • 5th place: (2) BooBooCubs vs. (8) Most Daring
  • 7th place: (5) Ferris Indians vs. (6) Muse Academy Muses

One note about the championship round: instead of the weekly contests, the championship round will take TWO weeks to finish.

Good luck to everyone in the last match-ups of the year!

    First, the final overall standings:

    1. Sparland Hilltoppers (165-79-20)
    2. BooBooCubs (144-102-18)

    • Lincoln – BooBooCubs
    • Obama – JSloan
    • Grant – BJ Penn

    And now a look at who performed the best in each statistical category.  First off, the teams with the best records in each stat:

    • Hits – Sparland Hilltoppers (1614)
    • HRs – Most Daring (202)

    • BBs – Funky Cold Molina (200)
    • Ks – Bo Hart All Stars (1141)
    • ERA – Bo Hart All Stars (2.89)

    And now, looking ahead to the 2011 season, here is a look at the draft order for next year:

    1. Bushwackers
    2. Quincy Dirtbags
    3. Bambinos
    4. Anabolic A Rods

    Congrats to everyone on a great first season, and looking forward to many more!

    IFB Quarterfinal #4: (2) BooBooCubs vs. (7) 2010 not a Holliday

    September 6, 2010 Leave a comment

    (2) BooBooCubs

    • Record – 144-102-18
    • Series record – 16-5-1
    • Lincoln Division Champion, 46-23-3 (best divisional record in league)
    • 7-4 series record vs. playoff teams, 69-56-7
    • Has not lost a series since Week 13

    (7) 2010 not a Holliday

    • Record –  131-115-18
    • Series record – 9-10-3
    • Wild card
    • 1-7-2 series record vs. playoff teams, 43-67-10 game record
    • Was formerly known as 7 heaven

    Previous match-ups:

    • Week 6 – BooBooCubs won 7-5
    • Week 21 – BooBooCubs won 9-1

    This has the potential to be one of the most lopsided match-ups this week.  BooBooCubs comes in as one of the hottest teams in the league, going 35-10-2 in the final four weeks of the season.  2010 not a Holliday  comes in as one of the coldest teams in the league right now, posting a 12-32-4 record in the final four weeks of the season.  Anything can still happen, but it would not be a surprise if this one was out-of-hand Sunday evening.
