HARL Stats Posted!

Stats thru Week-21 have been posted. Phew... I'll be glad when the baseball season is over and my "fall vacation" arrives. I'm really getting burned out doing the stats every week. It happens to the best of us.
The HARL STANDINGS didn't change very much from last week. Looks like we have a nip/tuck race for 1st Place between the JOKERS and COBRAS over the final week of the Regular Season. The Jokers have the edge right now, but with only 1-point separating the teams, anything can happen.
The GRILLERS remain entrenched in 3rd Place and are a lock to remain there heading into Labor Day. The RHINOS are holding down the 4th spot and things look solid for them playoff-wise. The final playoff spot looks like it's going to come down either the MUDHENS or ASSASSINS, although the BREWSKIS could surprise if they get red hot this week and the Hens & Assassins falter. Stay tuned.
This Sunday's FAD is the LAST ONE of the 2008 season. So if you have any remaining dough left to spend, you better spend it while you can!
As you're well aware by now, the TOP FIVE finishers through WEEK #22 make the HARL Playoffs. They also win some prize money in the process. Once LABOR DAY is upon us, the rosters of the non-playoff teams are FROZEN. That means those teams don't make any more roster moves for the rest of the season, and cannot pickup anyone off the Waiver Wire. 
The five playoff teams may EXPAND their Active Rosters to 26 players on Labor Day by adding 1 HITTER and 1 PITCHER to their lineup (position does not matter, so your hitter could be a 2B, C, OF, or whatever, and your pitcher could be a SP or RP). 
During the month of September, only teams participating in the HARL playoffs can claim players off the Waiver Wire. These players are TEMPORARY PICKUPS and will be automatically force-waived after the season ends. 
That's all for now... Enjoy the final week of the REGULAR SEASON. Best of luck to all those who are fighting for a playoff spot.
