Here we are.  It's time for the last series of the regular season.

It looks like the playoffs are nearly locked in, with seeding the main thing still up for grabs.  However, it's not over yet.  Standings towards the playoff line are still close, meaning we could still see a change in who makes the playoffs.

Should the playoffs begin today, here would be the matchups:

Match 1 - #1 Dulzy vs. #8 ddloml vs. #9 brewerspug vs. #16 dikapalooza
Match 2 - #4 MrLeam vs. #5 texwestern vs. #12 toki47 vs. #13 jarlbartar
Match 3 - #3 icecreamman vs. #6 philc78 vs. #11 Officer Jim Lahey vs. #14 MKEtotheATX
Match 4 - #2 thefreewheelin76 vs. #7 badgerman59 vs. #10 ObiBraunKenobi vs. #15 jimf

Two tiebreakers to resolve (remember the tiebreaker is scoring in last three weeks):

- badgerman59 wins a tiebreaker over ddloml for the #7 seed
- ObiBraunKenobi wins a tiebreaker over Officer Jim Lahey for the #10 seed

How will the last week play out?  Do your research, roll dice, look into the suds in your beer, do whatever it takes to get you the last points that you need.

You will notice that the standings below the jump are different this time.  Rather than write static results right into the page, I took an idea from texwestern and just embedded the live updating spreadsheets right into the webpage.  This will mean that standings will be updated the moment I update the actual spreadsheets.

Bonus Point Opportunity:  I wanted to give you all one last chance to get some extra points before the playoffs start.  However, I didn't want to make it too easy.  After thinking about it for a while, here's what I came up with.  It's time for another bonus point opportunity for bonus predictions based on a player.  The first choice that came to my mind was perfect for a tough prediction chance:  Yuniesky Betancourt.  Of course, then I thought about it some more and realized that I don't want a revolt on my hands.  So, I changed my mind and decided to go with Jerry Hairston Jr.

This is similar to the last two times that this has occurred.  All bonus predictions involving Jerry Hairston Jr. will be worth an extra point.  This is not a separate bonus prediction, it must be integrated into your normal bonus prediction.  To get the extra point, your prediction must be correct and normally be worth at least one point.

Extra Prediction for the Series:  It's back to the sausage race.  Which sausage will get you the point that you need?
