Winning this award for an unprecedented 4th time in his legendary storied cappig career, you didn't see SPOOKY put out more than two or three plays in any given night. His picks were well disciplined and can be found on the express daily. He started off sub.500 on less than 100 plays at the break due to some surprises and limited acess with the move to Florida. However after the ASB he dramatically turned the tide hitting about 65% in the second half including 2 seperate 80% runs that turned his profits around some 37 units in the positive direction. Considering he's been on one of the more popular streaks over the last few months, the postseason calls for doom and gloom for the books with a forecast promising in the continue to profit department.

This was a clear cut runaway for this rookie who broke onto the scene just as the 2011 baseball campaign was just beginning. For awhile he was neck and neck and in some instances slightly ahead of SPOOKY before Marc's second half surge put a little bit of a reality dose into the mix. Still, reesp usual;ly released about 4 or 5 plays on a regular basis on any given night. A 3-2 or 4-1 wasbeginning to become the emphasis of regularity and only for about the first week was he ever in the red producing as much as a 14 unit profit midway through the campaign. If there's any indication that the postseason will bring similar success, you might want to take note if you're looking to add winners when teams battle for what really matters most at the opportune time.
Cy Young: bulldog 383-333 .535 +8.32

While the leaderboard may represent someone who was all over the place, bulldog did get off to a rocky start in April and May being down some 35 units at one point. However in June and right into most of July he used his bite over bark and surged to an insurmountable comeback hitting better than 70% and winning back 50 units to take a 15 unit profit right into the ASB with no looking back since. Bulldog is never at a loss for action releasing on busy nights at least 6 plays, but the 2-4's quickly turned into 5 and 6-2's while most took note holding his own in an otherwise unpredictable campaign. Finding a spot on a weekly basis as one of the greek capprs to watch, we will be doing more of the same this afternoon with the start of the 2011 playoffs.

Consistency in winning is the key to making a profit in baseball as well as picking your spots with discipline. Showing a major improvement from 2010, hugh showed no fear in releasing 6-8 plays per night, and right out of the gate 5-2's and 6-1's became a household commodity. One of the few cappers to show a relative profit all season long, hugh reversed his fortune some 40 units from last season and became regularly featured in the top 5 on a weekly basis. Difficult not to notice and we look for hugh to continue that type of success that defines cappers who are committed to picking winners during the postseason.
TY JTG for the great write-up!...
Congrats to the winners of these awards as well as to all the cappers that posted during bases. We had a great season overall and lots of fun too boot!
Best of luck to everyone in the playoffs and I hope to see everyone back next bases season as well as sharing thoughts and insights to foots and hoops and soccer and horses and all the other sports I love so well (Ok even Hockey which isn't one of my favorites but I do try to keep up with the teams and everyones thoughts)
Congrats again to the award winners!
And when someone breaks our wings, we simply continue to fly...
Usually on a broomstick but we're flexible like that
