    Default New contributor to 2039's Initial Power 36 (!)

    We bring you a new format this season. First, this version is actually 36 entries. Why? 4 more jokes, sillypants. Next, the rankings are going BCS-style... a compendium of multiple polls.

    We have (1) the FAC poll; (2) the Morgado News Network (MNN) poll, which provides this week's pithy comments; and (3) the Brow Sporting News (BSN). Enjoy!

    Link for the Queens game mentioned in the blurb:

    The Milwaukee one was really cool - Pursel is a guy whose dominance began after I left the league, but what a story for him to come back for the farewell tour and get 350 with the team he started with.

    Link for the Triangle injury: http://www.thefobl.com/news/html/lea...news_1586.html

    Oh, and Alaska has one hell of a playoof rotation, in case people didn't already know that.

    I don't know how lucky we are to play Orono. We're a mere 4-3 against the Pocket Otters.

    I much prefer the Brow Sporting News Poll over the other two. Not sure why we are struggling in one-run games, have a solid setup guy and closer. Great job guys!
