So, it has come to this. One more week of action before we are forced to turn our attention to football, basketball, and hockey. I am currently holding a steady lead in my championship matchup. If victorious, it would be my first title since 2007, so that is exciting for me.
If you’re in a tight match, you need to consider a lot of factors such as teams fighting for playoff spots, or teams who have hung it up for the season. September call ups, massive hot streaks, and other factors can also make the difference in this final week of play.
I am here to bid you farewell, but not before I offer up a few last minute tidbits that can help swing things in your favor.

The Pirates go up against St. Louis and Florida in the final week, and the Mariners face off against Texas and Oakland.
To those looking to nab some valuable saves in the final week, these are widely available players who are making noise this month.
