First things first... a spreadsheet of weekly stats for all teams are stored here:
Second things second... each week, I'll generate some
auxiliary stats. We're head-to-head, and that's best. Each week, I'll
store away the standings for the week.
Also, in a more roto-ish fashion, my New and Improved Performance Ranking (NIPR) stats give you the other side of the coin.
Each week, your team's statistical performance in each category is calculated over the season, regardless of who you have been playing.
NIPR stats are shown for each of the 10 categories we use at LP3.
For the stat-obsessed, there are 5 separate NIPR rankings:
NIPR stats are updated each week. Go!
Yes, this is pretty much all blather. It's just for nerdy fun.
peace... yow, bill
LP3 2012 All-Star Team
Honorable mention: E Encarnacion (tor) of the Jax Sun #10, Chris Sale (sox) of the Chop #13.
Andrew McCutcheon... best in the land and the first half MVP. Below for grins... here's a pic of McCutch signing autographs before our game in Pittsburgh. It's not in this pic, but Ty snagged a McCutch auto... and later a McCutch camo jersey. Sweet!
So be it, but a name worthy of the All-Star list is Mike Trout (laa) of the Poap. Trout missed nearly all of April in the minor leagues, but since his first game on April 28, Trout has easily been the most dominant force in all of fantasy baseball.
Trout and the first half's best pitcher both belong to the
Poap. Neither was drafted. Jiminy. There are two other scrap heap
All-Stars: catcher, Carlos Ruis (phi) of the CryoTed and FerNANDO
Rodney (tam) of the Ventura. Good job, lads.
The FRENCH FRY lead the league with 3 All-Star players. I was certainly in attendance at the draft, but I don't recall how the FRY snagged Miggy, D Wright andJosh Hamilton. Hrmph. Many teams have no All-Stars, including the first place Rebellion.
the second half... yow, bill
Labor Day, 2012
LetsPlay3 Final 2012 Standings
Here are the final standings for the 2012 LetsPlay3 regular season:
Labor Day, 2012
The 2012 All-LP3 Team
Bopper honorable mention: Cargo (col) of KGG #13, and Matt Holliday (stl) of Mini-Commish at #15. Bow down low to the ageless wonder D Jeter (nyy) of the Chop who finished 1 spot behind Hanley for best shortstop at #51.
Pitcher honorable mention: D Price (tam) of the Ventura #11, C Kershaw (lad) of the Nugget #12, and J Cueto (cin) of Ry Rebel at #14.
So, Mike Trout, 2012 MVP. Amazing. I'm pretty sure that we've ever had an undrafted MVP.
Here's the timestamp: Apr 28 9:21am.
That's when the Poap pounced on the rookie, before his first game later that night. Trout wasn't good in 2011 for his September callup. And he wasn't good in April, going 1-11. After that, he was, by far, the best player in baseball, real and fantasy. Nice snag, Poap!
Here's another timestamp for you: May 21 12:06pm.
That's when the Poap dropped Matt Thornton and picked up the league's top pitcher, R.A. Dickey. It's a Poap world, and we're just watching the parade go by, eh.
Oddly, our regular season first place team didn't sport any LP3 All-Stars. I guess you would call the CryoTed attack "balanced" with Pujols #20 and Strassberg #21. Whatever the case may be, Vegas has wagered that the #1 CryoTed team will likely face the All-Star-laden #2 Poap in the LP3 finals this year. We shall see.
On to The Playoffs!
