michael55 (Red Sox) at 4/21/2020 9:49 AM: Good race brewing in the AL with 5 teams neck an neck and two primed to jump back in... NL looks like a two team run!
Bosox13 (Mets) at 4/19/2020 12:18 PM: Will move Koosman to anyone wanting a solid SP for 15 seasons. Need 1 great or 2 solid players with similar seasons available. Any position needed
michael55 (Red Sox) at 4/17/2020 3:13 PM: Injuries are killing the Red Sox season...
michael55 (Red Sox) at 4/15/2020 3:32 AM: Red Sox reeling with SP Tommy John out another 16 gms!!!

Royalsblues (Athletics) at 4/1/2020 7:01 PM: We had quite a few owners opposed to lowering stats, so we will keep them the safe.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 4/1/2020 7:00 PM: Also-trades are on

SCDEAC (Tigers) at 3/28/2020 1:19 PM: congrats giants! And yes, that trade was a good one for both of us. Two HOF'ers and each leads new team to a title. Bunning definitely got the best of Mays this series, but Mays was MONEY last season when he got his ring.
Jsmathiot (Giants) at 3/28/2020 10:36 AM: Thanks michael55
michael55 (Red Sox) at 3/28/2020 8:37 AM: Congrats to the Giants on their World Series victory!
jsmathiot (Giants) at 3/28/2020 5:20 AM: Thanks! We made a trade seasons ago, Willie Mays for Jim Bunning; worked out for both of us. Title for the Tigers last year, one for me this year.

michael55 (Red Sox) at 2/21/2020 2:47 PM: Tough race heating up in the AL...
bobknightrules (Twins) at 2/20/2020 3:18 PM: 8 players in the league injured and 3 of them are mine....good grief
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 2/17/2020 5:07 AM: New leaf poll. And if you participate you get a spiffy “I voted” sticker to wear all day. FYI hidden in the small print is diversion of funds from social security and Medicare to build a wall at the Canadian border. So no expansion in Toronto and Montreal (just kidding)
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 2/12/2020 3:27 PM: Relievers should be good
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 2/12/2020 1:32 PM: Just realized I didn’t go through reliever free agents and put them back on their rightful team. I got through a few, and will work on more later as am able to-at work right now.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 2/11/2020 4:41 PM: A’s have some pitchers on the trading block. Looking for OF or 2b

Bosox13 (Mets) at 2/11/2020 6:19 AM: Lol. That's funny
Michaelbylsma (Angels) at 2/10/2020 6:21 PM: If you need an OF let me know. I have a ton of them and they all suck.
jsmathiot (Giants) at 2/9/2020 6:46 AM: Congrats to the Tigers! Way to get on a roll and take it home
SCDEAC (Tigers) at 2/9/2020 6:10 AM: Thanks guys, I don't think I've ever had a team get as hot down the stretch as the tigers this year- went 36-7 in last 43 games.
Michael55 (Red Sox) at 2/8/2020 8:08 PM: Congrats to the Tigers on their World Series victory!!!

Royalsblues (Athletics) at 6/15/2019 9:21 AM: I will leave the league private for a few days before opening up to the public
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 6/15/2019 9:20 AM: We had an owner that had to leave the league as a result of real-life reasons. At this time, the Reds are open if anyone would like to switch teams. I also would appreciate if owners pass the word in other leagues to fill the open slot,as well as the open slots we will have next season.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 5/31/2019 8:12 PM: Thanks, Lee. It’s exhausting for me, and I can’t imagine how my wife gets through the day. But it’s pretty amazing.

Royalsblues (Athletics) at 4/24/2019 5:12 PM: I’ve asked a few owners in some of my other leagues, as well as made this league public. As of now there are no bites. I encourage owners to put some feelers in their leagues so we can get filled up. Once we have a full league, we will get started on the expansion draft and move forward from there

Royalsblues (Athletics) at 11/17/2018 4:53 AM: Parity in the NL with 7 teams either 5-4 or 4-5. Indiana haven't lost and A's 8-1 behind them.
fightingtigers (Cardinals) at 11/10/2018 9:40 AM: Thanks. Yankees were tough.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 11/9/2018 8:25 PM: Congrats Cards!
bobknightrules (Senators) at 11/9/2018 5:36 AM: congrats to the Cards !!!!! Thank goodness 57 is over but 58 is not looking much better for the Sens
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 11/9/2018 4:11 AM: Cards win in 7!
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 11/8/2018 5:44 PM: World Series is turning out to be a good one. NY tied up the series and heading to game 7
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 11/6/2018 6:39 PM: Despite ending the season 27 games back, this A's team did something their real life counterparts never did-have a winning team in KC. I guess that's what happens when you don't trade all of your good players to the Yankees for has-beens and never-will-be's. Didn't seem to bother the Yankees though lol
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 10/28/2018 4:02 PM: In the name of fairness we should consider taking 50% of your team and giving those players to the rest of the league!
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 10/28/2018 4:01 PM: That's impressive!
fightingtigers (Cardinals) at 10/26/2018 9:13 AM: Cards on a 30-5 run.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 10/14/2018 8:00 PM: Welcome Maxzubnik. As always, 10 days before he can trade.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 10/14/2018 9:00 AM: The Reds are looking for a new owner. The lease spread the word it any good owners you know. Extra salary cap money for any referrals.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/26/2018 6:33 PM: One thing Ratchan did at the beginning of the league(out of necessity) was to have each team reduce their roster to 20 before the supplemental draft. I felt it made for a more interesting off season. Any thoughts on bringing something like this back to the mix?
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/25/2018 7:41 AM: First sims will be early Thursday morning with a Wednesday for owners to get their lineups set
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/25/2018 7:40 AM: Supplemental draft will be run at about 4 pm pacific, with free agency turned on at 5 pacific. That is the hope anyway, unless I get held up at work.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 9/25/2018 7:11 AM: Welcome all!
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/24/2018 6:40 AM: Welcome Rayfleet! We now have a full league. As Ray was previously in the league, I will waive the 10 day no trade rule.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/23/2018 2:58 PM: Welcome Lpaul. Everyone it's, he cannot trade for 10 days.
Lpaul (White Sox) at 9/23/2018 12:47 PM: Can I have the Orioles please ?
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/21/2018 4:17 PM: Got it Rwash. Please not rwash cannot trade for 10 days
rwash (White Sox) at 9/21/2018 2:34 PM: please switch me to reds
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/20/2018 6:16 PM: Mm about the no-trade rule for BabeRuth21. I goofed and forgot he was the previous owner
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/20/2018 5:44 PM: BabeRuth21 has joined. In keeping with the rules he cannot trade for 10 days.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/20/2018 3:59 PM: I have now made the league public. Hopefully this is attract (good) owners. I will soon make an offseason schedule to get 1957 started.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/19/2018 6:05 PM: I'm planning on going public tomorrow or the next day since I'm not getting much interest from my other leagues. I would like to have a full league before going on, but if it takes too long I will take care of the open teams until we fill up
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/19/2018 6:00 PM: I should mention, if anyone wants to switch teams to one of the open ones, let me know
Gallo76 (Braves) at 9/16/2018 12:07 PM: Well-run league with good owners. Thanks to all.
Royalsblues (Athletics) at 9/16/2018 6:58 AM: If someone is willing to be commish I can help by being vice. I don't have time to take on the full load, but would hate to see a successful league shut down
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/15/2018 9:42 PM: Nobody has shown interest in being commissioner, so I think I willl shut down this league.
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/14/2018 5:12 AM: Thank you for being in my leagues.
leej (Red Sox) at 9/14/2018 4:58 AM: thanks for your time ratchan
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/11/2018 8:31 PM: "news" story (it is not so new at this point.)
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/11/2018 8:30 PM: I will get started on preparations for 1957 as soon as I can. For now, please enjoy reading and re-reading the new story above.
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/9/2018 10:00 PM: Thanks, cuBs.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 9/9/2018 9:27 PM: Congrats white Sox!
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/7/2018 5:33 PM: The White Sox have clinched their first AL pennant since 1935!!!
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 9/3/2018 12:26 AM: Late 2010’s to boot.
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/2/2018 2:15 PM: 2010's? You must be patient.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 9/2/2018 11:11 AM: I never specified which decade.....
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 9/2/2018 10:23 AM: The State of Pennsylvania just denied our request for entry.
ratchan (White Sox) at 9/1/2018 3:14 PM: REMINDER - The trade deadline is after game 110.
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/30/2018 10:22 PM: Yes, the 60's were pretty sweet for Cubs, if I recall.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 8/30/2018 9:46 PM: We’re looking forward to a new decade.
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/30/2018 7:35 PM: Indeed you are. I had failed to notice that. Even though our teams are in the same city, it can be hard to see you way down there from up here in the penthouse.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 8/30/2018 6:58 PM: We’re creeping our way back though.
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/30/2018 2:11 PM: Yes. I noticed that you had departed the Pennsylvania section of the standings.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 8/30/2018 6:52 AM: Cubs are considering getting to .500, holding off on Altoona plans at the moment.
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/29/2018 5:22 PM: REMINDER - The all-star break is coming up after game 82.
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/27/2018 4:03 PM: Scranton Cubs? Altoona Cubs? Harrisburg Cubs? Hmm...
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 8/27/2018 7:02 AM: Cubs are considering relocation into PA.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 8/17/2018 6:32 AM: Congrats Dodgers!
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/17/2018 12:11 AM: Boring series.
RayFleet (Redlegs) at 8/15/2018 12:12 PM: Big three-game New York/Boston series coming up!
ratchan (White Sox) at 8/10/2018 7:50 PM: REMINDER - The trade deadline is after game 110.
Roadmap (Pirates) at 8/1/2018 4:51 PM: Wow .. Pirates no-hit by Cardinals Schmidt 1st game of the season..
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/29/2018 9:07 PM: You waited a whole season to say that.
fightingtigers (Cardinals) at 7/29/2018 7:48 PM: Down goes Frazier!!!
Gallo76 (Braves) at 7/29/2018 6:07 AM: Thanks, Mike.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/28/2018 2:19 PM: Only if you thiink you are too soft to take the ribbing.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 7/28/2018 6:53 AM: Should I say my goodbyes now to the group? ;)
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/28/2018 2:46 AM: Glad to hear it, 1670. I guess I'll have to rib you more sinc eyou like it.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 7/28/2018 2:26 AM: Congrats Braves! No worries from my part Ratchan. I enjoy your leagues and ribbing.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/27/2018 2:16 PM: I would also like to add that, despite what Mr Hartley says in his user feedback about me (owners with access to the Commish Tools can view it), I never had any issues with him about trade offers being declined. Much of what he wrote is true (the parts about me needling him), but I have no idea what he is taling about regarding trade problems.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/27/2018 2:12 PM: I would like the league to know that I did purposely try to irritate BuddyHartely. He never did anything to warrant the boot, but I was so sick of the guy that I decided to pick on him to drive him to quitting. Mission accomplished.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/27/2018 2:03 PM: Peace, at last.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/27/2018 7:51 AM: Due to an obvious personal dislike on the part of the Commissioner, for whatever reason, I'll remove myself from his league. No idea what his problem is, but there is no point being in a league where the commissioner insists on constantly throwing snide remarks at one owner. I've enjoyed the league and the competition, but really don't need this kind of unasked for personal BS.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/27/2018 4:49 AM: With both leagues decided, I will now sim the rest of the season.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/27/2018 4:49 AM: The Yankees have clinched the AL, so it is now official. The team from Cleveland will not be extending its world series losing streak to six.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/27/2018 1:42 AM: Milwaukee has clinched the team's first ever NL pennant.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/26/2018 8:54 PM: On the other hand, if you feel it is getting a bit old you may want to try another league. There are many to choose from.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/26/2018 8:50 PM: I am glad you can handle it, because I intend to continue giving you grief.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 8:46 PM: I've taken it with good grace to this point, but its getting a bit old.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 8:45 PM: But Post-Seasons are still a crapshoot, though I do obviously know how to prepare for them. **** happens. But if you get your jollies by highlighting the negatives of the Indians every time you get the chance, then go for it. That's why you are the commissioner. You set the tone.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 8:43 PM: As to post-seasons, I once lost 10 Auto-League Post-Seasons in a row. My record is now 18 Rings in 37 Postseasons, so just under 50%. In Custom Leagues, I just won a Ring in Legendary Losers, so I have 4 Rings in 10 Postseasons, so a clean 40%. I'd put that record up against the vast majority of owners on PC.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 8:37 PM: At the time I left the Browns, II wasn't actually planning to return to the league. But yes, the Indians did offer more tools to work with, then did the hapless Browns. Though in real life, the Indians only won the AL Pennant in 1948 and then in 1954, so it wasn't like they were a lock to win anything. 1949-1953 was the 5 year Yankee Dynasty years, when they won not only the AL Pennant, but won 5 consecutive World Series as well.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/26/2018 4:26 PM: And, by the way, one thing an owner can do beyond "keep[ing] his fingers crossed" is exactly what you did, give up on the hopeless Browns and switch to far more talented team in Cleveland. That was a very bold move. A bit weak, but definitely bold.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/26/2018 4:19 PM: When you can rationalize like that, nothing will get you down. That's terrific!
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 12:57 PM: I never lose any sleep about a lost post-season series. A short 7 game series can go either way, and there is little an owner can do about it, other then to prepare as best he can, and then keep his fingers crossed.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 12:54 PM: Exactly! To lose 6 World Series in a row, you FIRST have to GET to the World Series! LOL
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/26/2018 5:34 AM: I guess this means you won't be losing your 6th straight world series, either.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/26/2018 3:01 AM: They seem to have regained their footing somewhat, but with just 20 games remaining in the season, it would take a total collapse from the Yankees at this point for Cleveland to win their 7th Consecutive AL Title.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/25/2018 3:17 AM: Very strange stretch for the Indians, as they go from an 11 game winning streak to losing 10 of their next 11. From a 1 game lead, to 7 games back.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/24/2018 9:26 PM: Cleveland just ran into a brick wall known as the Chicago White Sox.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/21/2018 7:26 PM: At the all-star break, Pennsylvania is 77-169. Things seem to be looking up for those three teams. Of course, what other direction could they possible look at this point?
leej (Red Sox) at 7/20/2018 5:05 AM: I'll trade anyone If the price is right
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/19/2018 7:33 AM: 40 days! Tough one leej! Same deal as last season.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/19/2018 5:27 AM: Maybe trade him to the White Sox.
leej (Red Sox) at 7/19/2018 5:03 AM: Williams hurt again ,crap
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/19/2018 1:32 AM: Senators have been hot out of the gate, but will they be able to sustain it through the 2nd 60 game stretch?
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 7/17/2018 6:48 AM: Quite a tear, comparatively.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/17/2018 1:13 AM: Pennsylvania has gone on a 7-14 tear to improve to 24-90 on the season.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/16/2018 2:21 AM: Pennsylvania update - Now 17-76.
Roadmap (Pirates) at 7/15/2018 5:32 PM: I’m up to moving lol Need to shake things up ..
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/14/2018 8:17 PM: Teams from Pennsylvania are a combined 13-59. This might be a new low. Hard to say, though, as there have been some pretty rough seasons in that state. Maybe one of those teams should consider a fresh start further west.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/14/2018 3:34 PM: The White Sox just handed the Orioles the worst loss in team history, 18-0.
BuddyHartley (Indians) at 7/13/2018 3:32 AM: Fortunately the 1st 50 games of any league are seldom a good reflection of the final league standings.
Mike1670 (Cubs) at 7/12/2018 11:19 PM: Spooner and friends will turn it around. Somehow the Cubs beat Spooner, do you know something’s not right in Brooklyn.
ratchan (White Sox) at 7/12/2018 6:57 PM: What's wrong with Brooklyn? Th..
