Anyone else waiting for tomorrow's game to decide their league?

My team is tied for the lead (with 93 points, out of a max 100! for two teams to have that many points is stunning) going into tomorrow's play-in game.

Right now, neither of us can gain any points, but we both could lose some. The difference is 1 RBI, .002 points of OBP or 1 W. Any of those change, and one of us will lose. Meanwhile, the guy who can catch me in Ws has Baker (but I have Porcello), so, well, it'll be intense!

I think I win the prize for 'best finish' to a fantasy season.

I am in a h2h league with 10 categories. One of the categories, ERA, is the tie-breaker in playoff series where the score is 5-5.

In the last day of the 2-week playoff, the score was tied 5-5 with my opponent leading ERA by a significant amount. I was behind in saves by one, and I had two closers yet to go. All of offensive categories were out of reach for both parties -- whoever was ahead was going to stay ahead.

Basically, I had to get a save in order to "tie" the category so I would win 5-4. What happened was nothing short of a miracle as far as I'm concerned.

First, the Dodgers failed to put one of my last two closers in the game (Broxton) in a save situation. Fate was not on my side!

Then, in the other late game, the Giants were tied with the Padres 3-3. All I needed was for "Lying in bed just like" Brian Wilson "Did" to get the save and my money league was MINE. Then, in the top of the 9th, my opponent's catcher -- Pablo Sandoval -- hit a towering HR so the Giants took the lead! Brian Wilson comes in, serves up a fly ball which is promptly dropped for a two-base error by the LF! Wilson then has to face MY batter in Adrian Gonzalez, who can ruin my life just like Sandoval ruined my opponent's! Luckily, Wilson and I are on the same page and A-Gonz is walked. Brian Wilson shuts down the rest of the Pads and I win my league 5-4!

My opponent's player hits a home run which completely screws him out of $300!
