A good rule of thumb for anyone covering any sport is to make sure that every time you get a chance to use a John Candy quote from Rookie of the Year, you do so. And as we slide into the final week of the fantasy baseball season, I think of that final, climactic scene and hear in my head Candy shouting, "This is it folks, this is what it's all about. One game, there is no tomorrow. This is for the whole megillah, for the whole ball of wax, for the whole kit and caboodle, for the whole enchilada, for the whole shooting match. This is for all the marbles." So in our case it's one week and not one game, but the message is loud and clear. This is it. Win or go home. It all ends here.
