kds4316 (No team) at 1/15/2020 12:04 PM: Togo has managed to catch the DR in Division 3. Looked like it might be a runaway for awhile.
kds4316 (No team) at 1/15/2020 12:03 PM: Inter-divisional play is over for now. Back to the divisional games!
kds4316 (No team) at 1/14/2020 1:31 PM: I *DID* jinx it. Sorry about that.
Erwin23 (Bafana Bafana) at 1/14/2020 10:24 AM: Andrew Benintendi has hit for the cycle

kds4316 (No team) at 1/10/2020 11:11 AM: After 10 games of inter-division play, D1 has 32 wins, D2 has 30, D3 has 28. Closer than I anticipated!
Erwin23 (Bafana Bafana) at 1/8/2020 1:29 PM: Congratz
kds4316 (No team) at 1/7/2020 10:43 AM: We have our first no-hitter of the season! Carlos Rodon (Spain Toros) tossed a 5-walk, 11-K no-hitter against the Greece Freaks.
kds4316 (No team) at 1/6/2020 7:05 AM: FYI, the first 30 games (and 33 days, with 3 off days) are all within your division. After that, we move to inter-division play for a while
kds4316 (No team) at 1/6/2020 7:02 AM: Day 20 has been simmed. Waivers have been turned off. Free Agency is now first-come, first-served.

Borg3127 (Azzurri) at 12/12/2019 9:44 PM: I sure hope so. Only takes a couple minutes to quick draft lol
kds4316 (No team) at 12/11/2019 6:02 AM: 12 of 18 owners have already completed the quick draft. If everybody else gets it down today, perhaps the Supplemental draft even this week?
kds4316 (No team) at 12/10/2019 6:30 PM: Free Agent draft complete. Quick draft should be live now.
superdave (Diamondblacks) at 12/10/2019 6:25 PM: when will quick draft start?
Erwin23 (Bafana Bafana) at 12/7/2019 4:48 AM: I can't find it either.
CornLiquor (El Tri) at 12/6/2019 8:33 AM: I’m not seeing a way to pre-rank. No option from free agent list
kds4316 (Rookies) at 12/5/2019 3:25 AM: Free Agent draft begins Friday morning. The expansion teams get the first picks. Get ready to start (re)building for next year!
kds4316 (Rookies) at 12/5/2019 3:24 AM: Rosters will be cleared after today. Some of you still haven't signed any players yet. All unsigned players will be put into free agency.

Followtheson (Andes) at 11/27/2019 8:11 AM: I feel like my team underpeformed throughout the season so it's nice to see them step up to the plate and pla like they are capable of!! :)
kds4316 (No team) at 11/27/2019 8:09 AM: Peru wins their first two games in Mexico, now 9-1 in the postseason. Cinderella 'Roos have taken home-field advantage from Japan.

kds4316 (No team) at 11/21/2019 1:31 PM: Mexico and NZ are in quite the race for the all-important #2 seed in Division 2A. The #4/#5 races will determine home field advantage in the first round. And *everyone* is still alive for promotion. Still lots to play for!
kds4316 (No team) at 11/21/2019 1:30 PM: Congrats to Mongolia and Italy for winning their divisions!
kds4316 (No team) at 11/17/2019 5:22 AM: Reminder that the top two teams in each division will be promoted to D1 next year. The other four teams in the division are fighting in the playoffs for the 3rd promotion.

borg3127 (Azzurri) at 11/5/2019 10:07 AM: Eduardo Rodriguez finally loses his first game. If he pitched an inning deeper into 3 of his games he'd be 8-1 with a sub 1 era

borg3127 (Azzurri) at 11/1/2019 10:47 AM: this khan's lineup is nuts. Hopefully if we meet in WS it'll be an epic offense vs pitching duel :D
kds4316 (No team) at 10/31/2019 7:43 PM: Mongolia's 15-game winning streak finally comes to an end against New Zealand! Quite the start.
Followtheson (Andes) at 10/31/2019 4:55 AM: Really disappointed in my team...a lot of good players not performing. :/
kds4316 (No team) at 10/25/2019 10:35 AM: In two starts, Scherzer has 2 CG, 18 IP, 1 ER, 1 H, 3 BB, 19 K.

kds4316 (No team) at 10/14/2019 9:22 AM: Wednesday night live draft at 10:00 Eastern time. 8 rounds total, though we are already into the 2nd round.
kds4316 (No team) at 10/11/2019 7:29 AM: FYI, modified the division to Division 1 and 2, rather than Major and Minor, for clarity's sake, especially this first season.
kds4316 (No team) at 10/9/2019 7:21 PM: Mookie goes first in the draft! And we’re off!
Borg3127 (Azzurri) at 10/7/2019 8:53 PM: Word up thanks :) looking forward to it
kds4316 (No team) at 10/7/2019 1:14 PM: *your*
kds4316 (No team) at 10/7/2019 1:12 PM: New email sent, hopefully successfully to all owners. Should answer you're question, borg. (basically: random)
kds4316 (No team) at 10/7/2019 1:01 PM: Ah, okay. Didn't realize it didn't produce the little email icon. Thanks.
borg3127 (Azzurri) at 10/7/2019 11:46 AM: also, what is the pick order? and how was it decided?
borg3127 (Azzurri) at 10/7/2019 11:45 AM: for some reason I can't message you privately kds, it won't let me. But you should send messages out in the commish tools so that everyone gets an email/private message. So that when they're looking at their league list it'll show the little mail icon. not everyone checks the public message of a league, but when they see they got a private message they check it. some people may not see this message on the homepage
kds4316 (No team) at 10/7/2019 7:14 AM: Slow draft begins Wednesday (see latest message)!
borg3127 (Azzurri) at 10/5/2019 10:01 PM: 2019 stats are out
kds4316 (Golden Eagles) at 9/28/2019 3:53 AM: Welcome, CornLiquor!
CornLiquor (El Tri) at 9/27/2019 7:41 PM: Looking forward to the start, viva Mexico
kds4316 (Golden Eagles) at 9/24/2019 2:09 AM: Welcome, Das! I’m looking forward to it too!
superdave (Diamondblacks) at 9/23/2019 8:08 PM: Nobody wants to be South Africa? That's my favorite national flag! :(
dasmashtros (Canarinha) at 9/23/2019 6:13 PM: How’s it going guys? I like the concept of this league, and am looking forward to getting it rolling.
borg3127 (Azzurri) at 9/23/2019 3:20 PM: hmm, i thought it was done in like 3 days after the last regular season game. Maybe that was 2017 stats. then again we still gotta wait for the league to fill anyways so by then they might be out
kds4316 (Golden Eagles) at 9/23/2019 12:05 PM: IIRC, the 2018 stats didn't become available until November.
kds4316 (Golden Eagles) at 9/23/2019 12:04 PM: I'm fine with a vote. Let's wait till this coming weekend to hopefully get a few more owners.
borg3127 (Azzurri) at 9/23/2019 11:54 AM: any chance we can do a vote about 2018 vs 2019 stats since 2019 will be out soon?
kds4316 (Golden Eagles) at 9/23/2019 11:44 AM: All set, Borg. Welcome aboard!
borg3127 (Kangaroos) at 9/23/2019 11:09 AM: can i be germany or italy :)
kds4316 (Golden Eagles) at 9/23/2019 6:37 AM: nap, I responded to you via email *before* you decided to leave. You emailed Friday night, and I responded Saturday at noon. Sorry that didn't suffice.
mcvn4 (Kangaroos) at 9/21/2019 9:15 PM: Think I’m next. Thanks anyway
naplajoie (Khans) at 9/21/2019 6:48 PM: sorry gents I’m out - look forward to competing against you elsewhere
naplajoie (Khans) at 9/21/2019 6:47 PM: I’ve made it pretty clear in the past that I’m not down with the whole nonresponsive commissioner thing
naplajoie (Khans) at 9/20/2019 6:59 PM: I disagree with mcvn - given the format, I suggest it would be best to use fictional players with Q progression
mcvn4 (Kangaroos) at 9/20/2019 7:59 AM: at this point maybe wait until 2019 stats to use?
mcvn4 (Kangaroos) at 9/20/2019 7:59 AM: anything happenign here?
mcvn4 (Kangaroos) at 9/17/2019 4:06 PM: G’day mate :)
superdave (Diamondblacks) at 9/17/2019 1:40 PM: guess this makes you my natural regional rival mcvn4 / good luck mate
kds4316 (Golden Eagles) at 9/17/2019 1:17 PM: Also, being first-year owners, if you'd like something not already listed, that's fine, too. Just let me know.
kds4316 (Golden Eagles) at 9/17/2019 1:17 PM: The team change requests have been granted.
mcvn4 (Pyramids) at 9/17/2019 7:13 AM: will take the Kangaroos i suppose. thanks! looking forward to a good relegation league
mcvn4 (Pyramids) at 9/17/2019 7:11 AM: dang USA is taken
naplajoie (Andes) at 9/16/2019 9:06 PM: can I please be the Mongolia Khans?
superdave (Andes) at 8/26/2019 6:20 PM: Please change me to New Zealand. Hope no one will be offended by the nickname Diamondblacks since it is an homage to the All Blacks
Goodfella (Azzurri) at 8/12/2019 9:07 AM: Thank you
kds4316 (Golden Eagles) at 8/12/2019 6:56 AM: No problem. I switched you over to the European division. Welcome aboard!
Goodfella (Eagles) at 8/11/2019 11:09 AM: Any way to have an italian team? If not possible i will stick with usa.
