I feel like I've been a bit lucky and there's probably a good chance I won't win as many games over the second half of the season.
After MD6, I was 1-4-1 and was almost 200 below my lifetime QPct. The last 6, I've been 4-0-2 and now I'm only -118 QP. My defense is a solid .864 and I'm now in 10th.

Leading my C rundle at 10-2-0, on a record win streak of 8. Playing .720 defense, 45 TCA, 38 CAA, 13 MCW. No ties yet this season is odd for me.

After a weird start to my season, with 4 ties in the first 8 days, I’ve been on a mini-win streak, fueled in part by no UfPA in the last 3 matches. I’ve managed to overtake bomtr despite lagging far behind him in TCA.

At 8-1-3, I am in the #3 position in my rundle, 3 points out of first place and in the last of the promotion positions. With 30 correct answers so far, I'm on pace for my highest TCA in several seasons; the questions seemed to have been easier the last week or so after I got off to a relatively slow start. I guess I've been sort of lucky so far; I only rank 12th in my rundle for DE but seem to be benefiting from poor defense by my opponents. Currently, I have a 6-game winning streak, the longest of my 28-season LL career.

Eff the don't talk about a no hitter during the no hitter curse...

Somehow. SOMEHOW. I'm -2nd- in A. With 48 TCA. Immediately above and below me are 60+ TCAs. I have a CAA of -45-. If this trend manages to continue I'd easily be in the running for luckiest llama.

More importantly, I now have as many wins in A as I have in C (this was my primary goal). I needed 8 when the season started. It took me 12 matches.

I'd buy a scratcher, but I'd rather not diffuse my luck on this one. Scratchers will be there forever. A 2nd place in an A is a once in a lifetime with my statistics :lol:

I feel like one of those MLB players that faces Greg Maddux and gets the collar without even realizing it. They called it a "comfortable" collar because you didn't even realize he was eating your lunch. I'm six questions behind my average TCA at this point (.349 Qpct vs. .453 career average). I only found that out by looking up the season to make a progress report. I'm channeling Zach Wilson here (to drop yet another sports metaphor).
In Taiga E my DE is at .690 which is my 3rd best in 15 seasons if I can hold it. I'm in a logjam in 9th place overall with 9 players within 2 points of the promotion zone. I have 4 other family members in the same scrum between 5th and 13th place.
The questions have been the usual high quality, but haven't been in my lane. I do recognize many of the reveals but don't have too many unforced errors. (I won't live down reversing the Cr/Ni order in 18-8 Stainless steels since I worked with many grades in my work life :oops: )

Batting .556 (vs 570) and .739 de (vs 683), with the usual combo of satisfying good gets and discouraging head slappers, good for 5/5/2 and middle of the pack. On The negative side, MPD is -10 and I had my first (I'm pretty sure) 0/0 in 26 seasons. Happy Thanksgiving to all and Go Pats!
