    i only mentioned it because you were discussing records with Eric earlier and they are useless with this format. Again, not a complaint, just making sure everyone understands that your record will be meaningless. I am totally cool with that. In fact I prefer it. In such a short season it seems that how you perform all 8 or 9 weeks should decide where you are rather than having horrible luck bounce you after two or three weeks.

    I mean even MLB is doing it wonky. You have teams competing against each other for the WC that will have ZERO common opponents. Itís A crazy year and thereís no good answer to it.

    Right, so you can go (0-8) and make the playoffs if you're the highest or second highest scoring team.
