I'll bet you're not surprised that I will post here!
In one Dobber league with Pengwin, I was seeded 2nd (no bye unfortunately) and faced the 7th seed in the quarterfinals. Our season record was 10-9-1 for him (though both matchups were blowouts - 9-1 for him, 8-1-1 for me), so I had to beat him outright to advance.
It was a really close matchup the whole way - both of us trading leads multiple times. In the end, I lost 6-3 but it was much closer than the score suggested. We were even in RBI, he beat me by one run, one stolen base and one save. The other close category I had one more HR. Not surprisingly it was decided by yesterday's final games.
Oh well - that's the nature of the H2H beast.
