Time for another addition of fantasy fun. In this chapter, Paul returns from Japan, Sarah clinches a playoff birth, Alejandro squeaks by and Coley accepts his fate. Sarah: The Somerville Green Sox clinched a playoff spot this week with a resounding 12-0 win over the long-dormant “caitlin grace” squad, who is apparently so lazy she […]

Sarah: A 7-4 win over croutchyoldman catapulted the Green Sox into third place in the league. It has been a long, arduous week of lineup-setting, with many of my players day-to-day with injuries (Ryan Braun, Jacoby Ellsbury, Carlos Guillen) and with Rickie Weeks losing out on some playing time to Ray Durham. (And to top […]

The trade deadline for the UmpBump Fantasy League was this past weekend. So now, for better or worse, the waiver wire becomes our best friend. Sarah and Alejandro are smacking each other around vying for 4th place while Coley’s beginning to sound suicidal. And Paul is still busy picking a fight with the Chinese government. […]

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. Sarah: My Somerville Green Sox whupped Coley’s Crunkball All Stars, 7-4, mostly thanks to the pitching categories. My hurlers were no great shakes, but Coley’s got shellacked. Anyway, as […]
