If the league knew how much grief I got from Andy about how bad Chris Davis was....

Congrats to all, good work to Jeff for getting Nelson Cruz despite his average

I was getting ready to prepare my Congratulations Note, as well.  So ...

1.  Congratulations to Jeff and the Berliners, who will be hoisting the Damon next spring!!

2.  Congratulations to Mark B. for preventing the K9 from from achieving its top annual goal of beating the Bombers. (Rick, I'd congratulate you, as well, but am not quite ready to concede third to the Hoosier Daddies.)

3.  Congratulations to the Lubeasts for foisting Jeff Samardzija and Jeremy Guthrie on me in the franchise's first trade since returning to the league.  (Frank - please don't tell anyone that I specifically asked for Guthrie when you were offering Chris Young.  Sigh.)

4.  Congratulations to Mark Kerber for being the only guy in the league to laugh off Winick's "anti-puffery" as I shopped Roberto Osuna.  I hope the Nukes enjoy owning a $5 closer on the AL's best team.  (And, thanks Kerbs, for the 1.3 innings that Jason Vargas contributed to my team.  Grrrrr ...)

5.  Congratulations to the AYM for trading Nick Castellanos immediately before he became Evan Longoria ... in exchange for Evan Longoria just before he became Nick Castellanos. And don't even get me started on Annibal Sanchez.  (Doug - I do recognize that you traded Chris Davis to me in 2014, and he did end up having a pretty nice season.  :) )

Maybe most important, congratulations to all for a great season.  I'm already looking forward to next year's draft. (AND GO CUBS!!)

    Well, so much for that down to the final day battle - let me be the first to congratulate Jeff on his 2015 USML crown. Damned if that save-punting strategy didn't work!  His wily pitching improvements in the other 4 categories proved to be too much.  Now it's down to the last day for 2-4 places.........
