A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks


A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

Been on PC for about four years now. And being a frequenter of baseball-reference.com and all around stat nut to begin with and finding this site, was a match made in Heaven. Took to it like a fly on excrement.

Now I've been a regular in Customs the entire time, an all leagues-Favorite Teams obsessed team builder, occasionally an Auto (mostly to prove to myself I can build a winner anywhere, I know, being ubermodest..) but in all the league playoff appearances, perennial contenders and the likes, despite being able to build an assortment of franchises, the "trade all picks and go big on big FA to win every year" type, the "hoard youth (especially pitchers) and draft picks and build a youth movement to last for years" type, the "Contending Rebuilder (I'd like to think I coined that. Lol)" type

I'd had never pulled off a feat until yesterday...
https://www.pennantchase.com/lgSche..
The "3-peat". For one reason or another, it had always evaded me. So the fact that it's occurred in a non-keepers Auto League (Best of 2010's), makes it even more unlikely. My Aromatic AR-15's had to comeback from down 3-1 to do it on top of it !

Im aware most of this post may come off as braggadocio.

But quite honestly, in 2020, I've struggled mightily with whether to stay on this site or give it up entirely. I run too many leagues and it gets stressful.

But things like 'the 3-peat' yesterday, are those unique things that keep me coming back. You'll always see something for the first time if you look close enough. There's always some pointer to pick up. A new team or league to get excited over. For the few cheats or sloppy commishes you may find, there's a slew of dedicated, intelligent owners, and alot of well-run leagues (most are private, ask experienced owners to refer you) by dilligent commishes that bust their humps to provide all of us quality baseball SIM experiences.

So thanks to Guy for making a quality product that I can't seem to walk away from. I like it too much.
And a hats off to the dedicated owners that make competing against you all so damn addictive and commishes that make Custom circuits the ultimate challenge, and to the vets and newbs alike cutting their teeth that make Autos still a lot of fun (I try them out more, you've won me over there too, Guy. Lol

Thanks again for running a fun site.

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

can jay get a quad-peat???

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

Same division and all, damn Sheik...and I know you'll be on the ball. Think I saw another solid vet there too.

We'll see if the Aromatic AR-15's can keep the Kill Your Momma's at bay.

Ahhhh, America.... πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

Looks like a a group of death is forming up in that division....

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

yea twouble

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

Me, Sheik, you and Trulaila, indeed....

I will have to earn the 4th one the hardest way possible.

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

I am getting in on this action, sounds like fun. #stopthe4peat

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

hmmmmmmmmmmmm.........

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

Now Yankee ? Oh sweet baby Jesus.. Well, silver lining, this post will get the league filled faster.

My 4Peat now looks harder than Ron Jeremy just swallowed a bottle of Viagra.

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

stop the 4PEAT enters with a good roster and will play the AR-15's for their first series,

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

oh dang...
I have jayslater first series then bbfan20013 and his Wakanda panthers,
then the sheik, this league might be harder than I thought...😭😭⚾🀣

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

the group of people in this league are all great
What's next kingstreet getting in on the fun?
maybe who wins this year is the unofficial champion of PC
has a nice ring to it

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

Don't know if this sudden interest means you guys actually like me or really enjoy beating me. Hmmmm..

Im leaning pretty heavy into the latter. ;)

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

the league is loaded so i wanted to see how good i could be
plus we gotta make sure the journey to 4 is hard

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

JayKuntz fills us up. Another great competitor. Aye aye aye aye.

Well, I'll be preranking a bit more carefully...

You all have the upper hand. You're goal is to outsmart one owner at this point. I now have to outsmart the other 11 of you.

I do love how things kind of organically grow from these chatboards from time to time....

Gus' Battle Royale immediately comes to mind.

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

It filled fast !!! This is going to be fun.......

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

yea!

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

I figured I might as well join in on the fun. This will be my first Best of 2010s league. Not expecting much with all of the great competitors in this league, but I am always up for a challenge when Jay and Sheik are involved. Holy crap, this league is stacked! Good luck to all!

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

My goal is to do my utmost to prevent a 4 peat, the fact that this league seems to be a murderers row, only increases my desire to at the least, not embarrass myself

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

my goal is to not start 0-12, https://www.pennantchase.com/lgSche..
lol

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

I preranked knowing that even at what, 6, 7? That all that sweet dWAR I wanted from Parra, Machado, or Cain would probably be gone. Normally, I'd have landed at least 1 of the 3 from that slot.

Well played, gentlemen.

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

im a bit luckier at number 2

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

If you had chosen to rank one of those guys instead of David Price you would have gotten him Jay. it wasn't bad luck, it was your piggy on pitching and that's usually not a bad choice.



Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

Jay picked 7th, they were gone. Parra went 6th I thought he’d be first.

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

dang. would've been fun to join a league and be able to "talk" to fellow owners so to speak.

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

OOPS! I looked quick and figured he was 4 peat!

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

Let's get the chatbox of that league jumpin'. Maybe it'll help Guy's giving into owners asking for chat in Autos not look like a total bust. No one ever uses it. Ever. Let's chat it up in our Best of 10's/Stop Slater league, shall we ?

Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

Kick it off jayslater...sounds good

Re: Re: A 3-Peat and a Special Thanks

As expected. The Babe Ruth division is shaping up to be the group of death.
Can't be a tighter division. 3 teams (including Jayslater) at 16-14 and one team in the lead at 17-13, ...

REVEJB (win pct.700) is killing it in the other division while DZACH is pretty strong with is .667 win pct. Looks like they will beneficial from the clogging in the group of death.

Jay will have to put on is underdog costume and pull some magic this time

Stop the 4 Peat!
