Regular Season Winding Down

There is finally a light at the end of the regular season tunnel. Even though 3 of the division champs have been crowned, almost none of the playoff seeds have been determined.

This is where we stand:
  • The Pigs will have the #1 seed and a first round bye.
  • The Zaps will either be the #2 or #3 seed.
  • The Snakes will either be the #3 or #4 seed. They cannot get a bye, but according to the Snakeman, "Playing the Wahoos or Goofs is like getting a bye."
  • The Inmates' magic number over the Fungoes to win the HWD is 6, and with 17 games to go, they could be anything from the #2 seed to out of the playoffs. Best bet is the Inmates with the #2 or #3 seed. The Inmates need to go 9-8 to finish ahead of the Sidewinders, and 12-5 to beat the Zaps and get the first round bye. The Inmates have to the head-to-head tie-breaker advantage with the Snakes, but not with the Zaps.
  • The Fungoes could still win the HWD, but is more realistically fighting for a playoff spot.
  • The Goofs's regular season is completed with 88 wins. The Goofs are probably headed toward a 5-6 seed, but could still mathematically be left out in the cold.
  • The Wahoos have 20 games remaining and need to go 15-5 to catch the Goofs. The good news for the Hoos is that 10 of those 20 remaining games are head to head with the Fungoes, the other team he is chasing.
  • The Tweeners have 12 games to play and could still challenge for a spot in the post season.
  • The Drillers need the Wahoos to go 10-0 vs the Fungoes and 0-10 vs the Mavs or they are done.
  • Nads... see Drillers. Not mathematically eliminated, but it would take some weird shit.

Games remaining:
  • Wahoos (20) - 10 each with the Mavs and the Fungoes
  • Mavs (20) - 10 each with the Wahoos and the Inmates
  • Inmates (17) - 10 with the Mavs and 7 with the Rhinos
  • Rhinos (17) - 10 with the Tweeners and 7 with the Inmates
  • Tweeners (12) - 10 with the Rhinos and 2 with the Bees
  • Fungoes (10) - 10 with the Wahoos
  • Bees (7) - 5 with the Nads and 2 with the Tweeners
  • Nads (5) - 5 with the Bees
