It's wild that after this weekend, we have a mere four weeks left in the baseball season. The season always feels long in the middle, but then it seems to speed up and soon enough, we will all be itching for it to start again. Four weeks is still plenty of time to grind out some much needed points, and with this Sunday being the last FAAB period without NFL regular season games on, we are about to see a drop in the activity in free agent bidding as people's focus and attention gets severely altered on Sundays.
I tell the story too often, but just to emphasize how much every week or half-week mattered, my NFBC Main Event league last year came down to one Josh Hader strikeout in the tiebreaker playoff game. The league would have changed winners with one more strikeout in that game by Hader (and man, would I have been pissed about losing due to the extra games, ha), and of course, a ton of stats went into those standings before that, but it goes to show how close categories can be. Make sure to keep your focus on where you can gain and fall these final four weeks. I'm expanding the FAAB Feelings section this week to try and find some low owned players who can help you in the final month.
