Lucky Llamas: mauledbypandas
Random ItalicizedVoice: Random ItalicizedVoice
The Vincibles: VinWins
Team 69: T-Bone
Dukes of Flatbush: Howard
Anal in the Outfield: Johnson Phillips
Ian's Army: matt oakley
Tigertown Fieldermoobs: Bourne
Howlin Mad: vinko
WHIP yo' ASSists: Admiral Trey
The Scoobies: Errin
eye-talian backstop: AbNormal


We are currently the tightest RCL from top to bottom, with just under 30 points separating first and last. The defending overall champion, Random ItalicizedVoice, is 1 point out of the lead even though he has just a single point in ERA. Despite a ton of injuries, including to top pick Jacoby Ellsbury, Anal in the Outfield is still within striking distance. eye-talian backstop has been working hard to get out of the basement, and has been involved in all 3 trades in the league:

Apr 30 eye-talian backstop traded Jose Bautista to The Vincibles for Roy Halladay
May 01 WHIP yo' ASSists traded Kelly Johnson and Shin-Soo Choo to eye-talian backstop for Starlin Castro and Paul Goldschmidt
May 10 Dukes of Flatbush Alex Rios and Matt Cain to eye-talian backstop for Nelson Cruz and Bryce Harper.

Looks like it is going to be a tough battle this year.

Nice to see so many moves by the bottom team... Unlike our league...

It's been crazy how tight things have been all season long... I've gone from 12th to 6th place in a day and from 6th to 10th before, too. Of course it'd be nicer if I was subtracting 5 or 6 from all of those numbers...

Through June 1

The Voice is back on top. The Vincibles are way down. The Universe is aligned. All the moves that were working for me early stopped working, but I kept making them!

You should probably start including yourself in the race here, Vin. Nice run you've made the past few weeks....slowly creeping back in it.
