It’s down to the wire in UmpBump’s fantasy league. Paul continues to run away with first place, but can Sarah and Alejandro hang on long enough to make the playoffs? And is there any hope for Coley’s team? Sarah: This is one of those sad weeks where you’re happy just to escape with a 7-4 […]

The playoff picture is starting to form already in the UmpBump league, with seven teams vying for the six postseason births… And the only UmpBump writer currently out of the picture is Coley… But the huge deal he made with Alejandro this past week coupled with the return of Alfonso Soriano to his lineup could […]

It was a condensed fantasy week, what with the All Star break and all, but the results had a big impact on our standings—and our rosters.

And will the tensions destroy UmpBump as we know it? Sarah: I lost 6-3 to Paul this week after leading 10-2 as late as Thursday. Many of our […]

It was lucky Week 13 in the UmpBump Fantasy League. Here’s what befell each of us: Sarah: The Somerville Green Sox suffered a 9-2 beatdown at the hands of Box89RowKKSeat14, Ania’s team. Although, I have to say, neither of our offenses were very good this week. I only took the RBI category (by a single […]
