GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 6/4/2020 6:40 PM: I'm just as shocked as you are, Skooler. Busy day at work. Ugh. The work of a supervillain is never done! ๐Ÿ˜ณ Tomorrow's not looking good either, but I've got some holiday time coming up. I'm always checking in on you all though, so don't misbehave!!! (apparently, that's MY thing!)
skooler1 (Bankees) at 6/4/2020 4:16 PM: Shockingly enough, over the course of the day, even here in the BNBL, as well as elsewhere on PC, all is quiet on the Gus-tern front..........
ragingsol (Gorillas) at 6/4/2020 3:57 PM: The Flibs RP Heaverlo is fighting Duffalo for low ERA. Heaverlo with 19 IPs and 0 ERs. Duffalo with 16.2 IPs and 1 ER. Good season to be 'lo.
RitzCards2 (Meteors) at 6/4/2020 9:22 AM: Haha.
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/4/2020 8:03 AM: Well it does look better when you look at COMPILED Stats- something I neglected to do.......
offday (Wingnuts) at 6/4/2020 7:56 AM: Too bad the Wingnuts can't hold the lead until the 9th inning.
ragingsol (Gorillas) at 6/4/2020 7:18 AM: I know Silver Sox management is like the Gulag, and it's perfection or torture, but RP Duffalo of the Wingnuts has 1 ER in 16 IP. A 0.54 ERA is a scorching start.
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 6/4/2020 7:05 AM: well, i didnt actually have the Cardinals, i just wanted to do a 2011 season. it was the first one too in that league, so it is super special. PLUS! i had Yadi and Puma, 2 of the stars of that Cardinal team. oh and i had Chris Carpenter, but in the bullpen. the team i beat had David Freese, but wasnt using him in the World Series and i was like how do you not play David Freese in the 2011 World Series?! its why i won, i know it.
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 6/4/2020 5:52 AM: Congrats on the ring, Aly!! Itโ€™s so great to win with your favourite team, isnโ€™t it?!? Great job!
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 6/4/2020 4:47 AM: ahahahahaha Sin! i would need a shortstop if i traded Chico.
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 6/4/2020 4:46 AM: GUS! i have had Felix the Cat every time so like 5 seasons i think? never hurt. never very good either... but now he is my best player and gets hurt for 10 games?! i see how it is ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿฆ‚๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ’ฉ
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/4/2020 4:46 AM: Nice Aly, one hand is full of Rings! Now start on the Other!!! and trade me CHICO!!!! LOL
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 6/4/2020 4:34 AM: i got ring number 5!!! it was the first season of a 2011 league, and yeah my favorite year EVER for the Cardinals! i won the World Series in 7 games, having to win the last two like the Cardinals, but no drama in Game 6 ๐Ÿ˜ธ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿ‘ธโšพ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿฅ‡๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ https://www.pennantchase.com/lgTeam.aspx?lgid=1183&tid=1183-12
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/4/2020 4:21 AM: Sol, have you been chewing Mushrooms again? Duffalo is not having that good a year..... although he Does rhyme with Buffalo
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/4/2020 4:20 AM: Not Cheating- But I found a way to win in Hoops ---https://www.pennantchase.com/hoopsplayground/teampage?pgid=04c6e715-b5aa-4059-9fc1-02b8238cb501&tid=34be508a-aebb-4d00-bc00-327bf6e61ff0
htennis (Isotopes) at 6/3/2020 10:02 PM: LOL
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 6/3/2020 8:53 PM: Lol - I just saw the boards. YIKESERS!!! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Iโ€™m famous now!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Ž
skooler1 (Bankees) at 6/3/2020 7:28 PM: Oh geez, he really did it this time... Maybe I can steal his catch phrase just this once... GOOD GRIEF!!! Lol
htennis (Isotopes) at 6/3/2020 6:39 PM: lol Gus why are you causing such a stir on the public boards with your draft 7 OF strategy ;)
htennis (Isotopes) at 6/3/2020 6:38 PM: I know Maxwell Smart because of the Steve Carell movie ๐Ÿ˜‚
ragingsol (Gorillas) at 6/3/2020 4:37 PM: The Nuts RP Duffalo having a monster start to the season. New spokesman for Duff beer.
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 6/3/2020 3:13 PM: Lol - close. Missed it by thaaaaaat much (as Maxwell Smart used to say - you young folks should probably google that). Not seeing an exact match as of yet.
super (Flibbertigibets) at 6/3/2020 3:00 PM: Thank you, Sol, for finding the Flibber's cousins. The first image is his first cousin, twice removed. Second image is third cousin, fourteen times removed. Third is actually a step-cousin, removed from five step-brothers who married five different step-moms. Last one is fifth cousin, negative four times removed. Easy to keep track of.
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 6/3/2020 12:48 PM: i do to trade, i mean i did once. i got J-Ray at some time. i either need to start trading or wait for some of them to age off my team and retire. idk what to do.
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 6/3/2020 12:46 PM: stay off my unicorns! ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿฆ„
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/3/2020 11:15 AM: Isn't the Flib's mascot the Xavier Blue Blob?
RitzCards2 (Meteors) at 6/3/2020 10:41 AM: Numbers always said Brito should shine, but he never performed for me. Also, Atlantis no more!
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 6/3/2020 9:24 AM: Lol, everybody's on their game today!!
super (Flibbertigibets) at 6/3/2020 8:46 AM: Gus, I can't find the source of the Flibber image either. I'd like to think it just appeared from the ether once the team was created, as if the underlying forces of the universe knew exactly what sort of mascot I needed. Yeah, that's a much better story than "commish uploaded it for me, then forgot where he pulled the image from."
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/3/2020 7:15 AM: need 1 to fill Hoops League! https://www.pennantchase.com/hoopsplayground/leaguehome?pgid=a907e18e-30ca-48b6-96e8-42686feee264&result=Team%20was%20updated
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/3/2020 7:09 AM: a new record for length of time having your card displayed - Jamie Quirk 2 SEASONS -
Dommod (Nine) at 6/3/2020 7:08 AM: What you are saying is like it is as difficult to get a trade with Alycats as it is for J. Trudeau to answer a question lately ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿค๐Ÿค๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฏ
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/3/2020 7:06 AM: Bigfoot- now there's someone who practices social distancing...
Dommod (Nine) at 6/3/2020 7:01 AM: ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 6/3/2020 6:18 AM: Trading with Aly in the BNBL is about as rare as spotting a leprechaun riding a unicorn being chased by bigfoot. Iโ€™ve only seen it once or twice. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 6/3/2020 2:41 AM: Sin, i cant trade my shortstop because i dont have another that is as good as he is. he has been my shortstop the whole time i have been here. plus he came with a built in name, which i loved from the start ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ’–โšพ
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/2/2020 9:20 PM: Frank Wills has cooled off, how about a John Jaha card? or maybe a Gus Suhr card, he is named GUS LOL
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/2/2020 8:43 PM: That is very informative Aly, yet no trade offer? I'm not feeling any love here --LOL
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 6/2/2020 8:28 PM: Felix the bat is creative and awesome. Well done! Also, when I was growing up our neighbours 2 doors down had a chihuahua named Chico. He was the 2nd most annoying dog on the block next to Susie across the street. My dog, Smokey, was the best dog on the block by a landslide. ๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿถ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿถ
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/2/2020 7:34 PM: Bats are mammals, so they are also animals Aly, and I STILL want you to trade me Chico Carrasquell because of my late Chihuahua Chico
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/2/2020 7:32 PM: Isn't the Flibs mascot a phone company thing?
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 6/2/2020 6:41 PM: Felix the Bat! omfg it was right in front of me the whole time lol!! i even use the bat emoji because Austin, and yeah, he got 2 more hits so Felix the Flat is now Felix the Bat.... not creative, but just leave me alone ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿ’–โšพ๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿฆ‡๐Ÿฆ‡
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 6/2/2020 6:29 PM: Your quest, should you choose to accept it - find the Flibs mascot online and tell the Commish where he found it in the first place!!! Canโ€™t find it anywhere on the internet. And Iโ€™ve really looked!! So many other blue characters. So many. So very many. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿฅถ
super (Flibbertigibets) at 6/2/2020 4:57 PM: The eternal Battle of the South continues eternally. Who will prevail this season? (Hint: me)
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/2/2020 4:03 PM: An Oddity, my team hit four Triples last game
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 6/2/2020 3:56 PM: Lol. Nice one, Sin.
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 6/2/2020 2:11 PM: that is so funny, and yes i could use a Catty on my team ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ’–โšพ
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 6/2/2020 2:10 PM: ahahahaahah
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/2/2020 12:40 PM: Aly, I'm surprised you haven't tried to trade for Steve McCatty ...
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 6/2/2020 10:47 AM: need a new name for Felix the Flat, he is doing great this time! so is Felix the Cat, so i cant just give him that name.... so many struggles!
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/1/2020 7:54 AM: We all go through slumps and rushes, Silver Sox had a 9 game losing streak already this year
ragingsol (Gorillas) at 6/1/2020 7:43 AM: The Gorillas are playing like a bunch of monkeys.
Dommod (Nine) at 6/1/2020 6:25 AM: It seems that underwater is NOT the best way to play for the Gorillas ... thanks for the series, we hope that from now on it will improve the luck and the season for the NINEs๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 6/1/2020 5:35 AM: Considering renaming the Atlantic Division the Atlantis Division since theyโ€™re all under water (under .500). ๐Ÿ˜‚ Great race though!
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 6/1/2020 5:12 AM: Ugly Bottom of the 9th for the Gorillas last game - lead 6-2 lost 7-6 - Bullpen allowed only 1 hit -the 1st batter a single, but 2 BB, 2 HBP and 2 Errors result in 5 Runs and a win for Mudville-- THAT was UGLY
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 6/1/2020 3:47 AM: awwww! the zoo only throws glitter htennis! well, except to ... nope never mind... not gonna say anything because everything is going too well right now for jinxes ๐Ÿ˜ธ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿ’–โšพ
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/31/2020 10:29 PM: AlyCats are whooping me
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/31/2020 7:24 PM: And Splendito Brito hits 2 bombs in the same game. Loving this guy!
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/31/2020 6:47 PM: Dick Green responds to the negative comments recently posted by drilling a 2 run shot in his last game
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/31/2020 11:29 AM: And the reverse is true for me =) I identify with the recent guys more!
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/31/2020 11:28 AM: fair enough! I was just looking forward to some playful banter!
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/31/2020 11:22 AM: Every Team had Big Boost Parks- Routinely by the 6th inning all teams had left was a tired Reliever getting shelled --JUST HORRIBLE Baseball.
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/31/2020 11:21 AM: I gotta agree with you on 2019 Leagues, I have played in 2 and the guys strike out WAY too often for my taste, I had a game that I was the HOME team and I scored 16 Runs in 8 innings, had 21 Hits and 19 Strikeouts RIDICULOUS
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/31/2020 10:52 AM: Yes I did ht. I know it might come as a surprise, but I'm slowly getting rid of my autoleagues. I might hang on to one or two here or there, but I was just in too many. Right now I'm in the middle of a quest to win with 32 different Canadian-named teams (teams I named way back in my childhood for a fictitious baseball league I ran in my own head and on scraps of paper). I've been on a bit of a run over the past month and have added about 6 or 7 more WS (while losing a bunch too) so I'm up to 18 Canadian-named teams with rings so far. I especially dislike the 2019 leagues that I've been in - just don't relate to the modern-day players as much as I do to more historic players - so I'm dumping most of the 2019s right now. The quest continues.
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/31/2020 10:36 AM: Gus you quit the autoleague? ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/31/2020 9:42 AM: yay! =)
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/31/2020 9:30 AM: Nicely done! It's often some obscure guy you don't expect when it comes down to the playoffs or the last game of the WS. Or sometimes it's Babe Ruth or Barry Bonds - lol, but once in a while it's nice to see the lesser guys shine.
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/31/2020 9:02 AM: TY to all for the Congrats! I really didn't think I would win that one, his line up was DEADLY - BUT I juggled my SP and was able to beat his ace Pedro Martinez with my #3 Starter after that he had an uphill Climb and I got Really Lucky game 4 down 2-1 - Bases Juiced, 2 outs bottom of the 9th and Phil Rizzuto who had 6 AB all Season drilled a base hit to left winning it
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/31/2020 8:55 AM: Dan Monzon complains to me every day that he should be in and Green should be out but we keep winning. Iโ€™m afraid Iโ€™m going to lose the clubhouse if I donโ€™t make a move soon. โ€œIn the Zoneโ€ Monzon is popular among the players.
dommod (Nine) at 5/31/2020 8:30 AM: Congratulations SCM โšพโšพ๐Ÿ’โšพโšพ
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/31/2020 7:51 AM: Dick Green getting everyday Playing time in Woodstock this year- Batting a cool .160 coming off a 3 Hit Game to GET to .160 and only a 3 Dwar total after 28 games.. Gus must be getting ready to bench him
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/31/2020 7:51 AM: Great job! Congrats!
skooler1 (Bankees) at 5/31/2020 6:05 AM: Congrats Sin!
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/31/2020 5:45 AM: Finally got my 10th Ring!! https://www.pennantchase.com/lgHome.aspx?lgid=1164
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/30/2020 10:36 AM: But DWar has been lowering the H/9 when it was already factored into their REAL stats hence more on target walks allowed
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/30/2020 10:34 AM: Yes I miss typed, basically every 5 innings a pitcher in this league should allow on average 7 base runners or 12.6 base runners per game
super (Flibbertigibets) at 5/30/2020 9:46 AM: A quick look at Tom Phoebus shows he has 7.7 H/9 and 4.9 BB/9, which combined equals 12.6, which then matches his 1.40 WHIP.
super (Flibbertigibets) at 5/30/2020 9:44 AM: Is that new math? 1.40 times 9 is 12.6, not 14, which is where I guess you got your 7 and 7 numbers from.
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/30/2020 6:30 AM: every pitcher has a 1.40 Whip so if he only allows 7H/9 he should also allow 7 BB/9. and its more like it should be now
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/30/2020 6:29 AM: It appears the little tweak gbacci made to BB frequency is showing its effects, walks up up, in fairness, they always were too infrequent, I donโ€™t like the Clumps of walks, but pitchers SHOULD me walking more especially in this league
dommod (Nine) at 5/29/2020 2:09 PM: ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ‘น๐Ÿ‘น๐ŸงŸ๐ŸงŸ๐Ÿงž๐Ÿงž๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
Gman15 (Knights) at 5/29/2020 12:50 PM: Hmmm, that would explain everything then.
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/29/2020 11:44 AM: Some extra conditioning time might be appropriate
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/29/2020 11:43 AM: Speaking of Banquets, it appears that Hebner insisted on there being a lavish Buffet style luncheon set up for him at each event complete with Shrimp Cocktail, -which he would arrange to form 666's before loading on the sauce and devouring them - Also apparently had a very strong thirst for Iron City Beer -acquired from his Pittsburgh days. It was said that every time his elbow bent his mouth opened..
Gman15 (Knights) at 5/29/2020 10:55 AM: Hebner just have really enjoyed himself on the awards banquet circuit during the offseason. Either that, or he threw his back out digging graves.
Dommod (Nine) at 5/29/2020 10:19 AM: โ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฏ that's my hope
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/29/2020 10:19 AM: (he's the key to our success -- holds the team together)
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/29/2020 10:16 AM: Oh and he just got Hurt for 8 Games- Might be a GOOD thing, shake off the Rust
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/29/2020 10:15 AM: What a difference so far from Richie Hebner, the old Sophomore Slump?? hitting .188 with a .375 SLG
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/29/2020 10:13 AM: I'll give you my 2nd round FA Pick in Season 12 for Dan Driessen - Deal? YUCK YUCK YUCK
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/29/2020 9:46 AM: i'll trade one for a draft pick ;)
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/29/2020 7:01 AM: Youโ€™re welcome! I will always take all the credit and none of the blame! ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 5/29/2020 6:55 AM: thanks Gus!!! Q was back for a game!!! he hit 3 home runs, and Kitty hit one too. its nice when Gus lets my players be good again ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿ‘ผโšพ
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/29/2020 6:51 AM: Last Game Casey Blake 4) 2B - 1 to Left, 2 to right and a 6-4-3 DP LOL
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/29/2020 6:50 AM: I guess that's possible GMan I didn't think of that
Gman15 (Knights) at 5/29/2020 6:09 AM: Something else*
Gman15 (Knights) at 5/29/2020 6:09 AM: Could be some guys got converted to other season in which their primary position was so.during else.
skooler1 (Bankees) at 5/28/2020 9:22 PM: I mean, after my last deal with gman, I wound up with 3 1Bs, soooo........ ๐Ÿค”
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/28/2020 9:17 PM: Thatโ€™s weird. For the past number of seasons Iโ€™ve added the same numbers of 1Bs as any other position. Maybe more teams have kept more 1Bs on their rosters?? Not sure.
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/28/2020 9:10 PM: Hey Gus, just wondering, how come there are almost never any 1B in the FA Pool? I looked and only 5 players have been retired, seems like there should be more 1B - lowest amount of any position available year after year
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 5/28/2020 7:19 PM: dropped Double R... have had him ever since i started in the league *sigh*... but i need to change things because GUS wont stop jinxing Q and nobody else is doing well either. Felix the Cat is getting better.... Kitty still hits home runs (when he hits), but not a lot of glitter left in the zoo these days ๐Ÿ˜ฟ๐Ÿ’”โšพ ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ’ฉ
RitzCards2 (Meteors) at 5/28/2020 6:00 PM: Morehead: 4 career shutouts in 284 starts. His no-hitter:shutout ratio is a record that will stand the test of time!
RitzCards2 (Meteors) at 5/28/2020 5:57 PM: I have a 5 game winning streak! And over my last 10, Iโ€™m 5-5.... which means...... lol. Hot or cold, but hot is more fun!
skooler1 (Bankees) at 5/28/2020 5:57 PM: Damn! He's good, but even I didn't know he was THAT good!! Lol
Gman15 (Knights) at 5/28/2020 5:25 PM: Is that Moreheds second no hitter this season?!! Yikes
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/28/2020 5:24 PM: Morehead throws his second no-hitter in 5 starts????
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/28/2020 2:32 PM: oh my
dommod (Nine) at 5/28/2020 1:07 PM: ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ
ragingsol (Gorillas) at 5/28/2020 12:42 PM: The division with three NY teams in it also has three teams with 9-11 in it.
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/28/2020 11:53 AM: I think the problem is that you're trying to press "apathy" -- if you start to forget about the buttons, that button will automatically be pressed
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/28/2020 11:49 AM: I hear that there is a call out from some owners for me to use my magical boss buttons (as Aly calls them) to somehow make their team better. Well, I have to say that I'm pretty worn out right now from pressing the jinx key over and over again against certain players and teams, but I'll see what I can do. .. .. .. ... .. ... Hmmm, it seems that no matter how many times I press the "apathy" key, nothing happens. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/28/2020 11:45 AM: Maybe Marty and Doc can go back in time and change the course of events and save Biff. Hope so.
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/28/2020 10:46 AM: Currently on an 8 game losing streak, I seem to be unable to string consecutive hits together
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/28/2020 7:38 AM: that was only 3 seasons ago so his low BA was probably due to the fact he retired at age 63.....
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/28/2020 7:37 AM: Generals players will be wearing Black armbands for there next 2 Games - Former General Biff Pocoroba passed away at age 66 - Pocoroba played for the Generals in Seasons 3-6 batting .225 with 33) 2B , 2) 3B and HR
Dommod (Nine) at 5/28/2020 5:37 AM: Please, make some room for the Nine in the club 1-7 in the last 8 games โ˜น๏ธโ˜น๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ....

Gman15 (Knights) at 5/28/2020 5:18 AM: I think I'm part of that club too.
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/28/2020 4:10 AM: Maybe it's just and hopefully an early season slump- if you look at his batting and my batting it's like we both ended up on the " Gus is not allowing us to hit" list
RitzCards2 (Meteors) at 5/27/2020 8:51 PM: Doh! Of course! Thank you, Dommod. For a minute there, I was thinking I might be to blame for my teamโ€™s failures thus far. Of course not! โ€œNever blame yourself when you can blame someone else!โ€ - a wise man, probably. So, Gus..... how are you gonna fix this?!?!?
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/27/2020 6:28 PM: might need to get rid of randy wolf as my #1!
Dommod (Nine) at 5/27/2020 4:30 PM: RitzCards2 ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ”Ž๐Ÿ•ต๏ธ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธ...Maybe it's Milt May, the glue that allowed the Meteors to dominate the Atlantic Division ... ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” ... BUT maybe the answer is much more complicated and obscure, another possible explanation for the results of BNBL season IX start , I can explain it to you with Alycats details and his experience with the powers and keyboard effects of OKGUS ๐Ÿ–ฅ๏ธโŒจ๏ธ๐Ÿ–ฑ๏ธ๐Ÿ–ฑ๏ธโŒจ๏ธ๐Ÿ–ฅ๏ธ ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ
RitzCards2 (Meteors) at 5/27/2020 1:14 PM: My team is very similar to last season. But we stink! Did yโ€™all get that much better? Or was Milt May the glue that held this team together?????
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/27/2020 11:37 AM: New guy is in first place overall. Thatโ€™s just the kind of welcoming bunch we are, here in the BNBL. ... Ok now, enough of that. Time to bring down the hammer!!!
ragingsol (Gorillas) at 5/27/2020 9:18 AM: Wills is a flamethrower. 11-plus K/9, 0 BBs in 8 innings of relief. 23 year-old looking forward to a long BNBL career.
maapearson (Generals) at 5/27/2020 7:12 AM: Generals are happy with new addition Wills in the bullpen.
Gman15 (Knights) at 5/27/2020 5:29 AM: So, Zane Smith has been on fire so care this season, 1.99 era, leads in fewest h/9---and is 0-3. Where has our offense gone. Got to make a few changes.
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 5/27/2020 4:37 AM: no minimum trades!!! its bad enough i am about to let go a few that have always played every game for me so far..... the zoo just stopped winning and cant start again ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’”โšพ๐Ÿฆ‚๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿ’ฉ
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 5/27/2020 4:35 AM: just had to put Q on slump buster! he has been really not good at all since Gus put up his picture at the all star break......
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/26/2020 8:51 PM: Yeah I decided to go full-on Brito for a season and see what he could do. Heโ€™s always been a favourite of mine in the little-known Minnesota Twins with minimal games played category. So Iโ€™ve brought the fences in for righties and put him at lead off. Itโ€™s all Brito all the time baby!!! Lol
ragingsol (Gorillas) at 5/26/2020 6:53 PM: Chuck Browns and B. Brito banging out HRs this season. Usually, the Browns are minimal HRs. Not Season 9.
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/26/2020 4:59 PM: Hmmm, maybe not. Pretty sure we've had a Thomas or two on Slump Buster in previous seasons! lol
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/26/2020 4:35 PM: Randy Wolf really struggling
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/26/2020 4:32 PM: Choo Choo becomes the first train on Slump Buster.
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/26/2020 3:04 PM: Thatโ€™s some nice, compassionate leadership, htennis. Lol
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/26/2020 1:06 PM: "i like you, but you have to go to satisfy the minimum trade requirement"
Dommod (Nine) at 5/26/2020 12:53 PM: ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/26/2020 12:16 PM: Oh thatโ€™s a good idea! Minimum number of trades per season! Hmmmm...... No, Aly would NOT be happy. Her wrath would destroy the chat box and possibly the whole BNBL. ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก
SinCityMarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/26/2020 10:13 AM: Looks to me like they were simply trying to make a " Minimum 1 trade per season" requirement LOL
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/26/2020 8:53 AM: Lol. Okay, but I'm adding this one to my very thick file called "Shady back-room deals in the BNBL throughout history".
Dommod (Nine) at 5/26/2020 8:32 AM: btw in case of doubts and to avoid speculation no ransom was requested ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
Dommod (Nine) at 5/26/2020 8:29 AM: No problem ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿ˜ทโšพโšพ
ragingsol (Gorillas) at 5/26/2020 8:21 AM: Thanks to Dommod for getting McDevitt back to me after I inadvertently dropped him. Gas-House dropping an SP who is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA would be egregious mismanagement.
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 5/26/2020 4:19 AM: dont nickname your players.... it makes it hard to drop them when you have to. poor zoo is not winning again, and i think i have to change players but i cant ๐Ÿ˜ธ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธโšพ๐Ÿฆ‚๐Ÿ•ท๐Ÿ’”
ragingsol (Gorillas) at 5/26/2020 3:43 AM: The Gas-House Void: Again, with zero players in top five of any offensive category. Just one elite hitter, that's not too much to ask.
Gman15 (Knights) at 5/25/2020 9:35 AM: Btw, love the walkups
Gman15 (Knights) at 5/25/2020 7:27 AM: So far it looks like Iโ€™ve fixed last yearโ€™s pitching woes, but now my offense is way down. So the question now becomes, do I sacrifice some defense (and possibly affect my pitching) to put a couple better offensive players in? Guess Iโ€™ll just monitor it for now and see how things play out.
AlyCat (AlyCats) at 5/25/2020 6:13 AM: LOVE that stray cats video! plus for added bonus it had a tuxedo kitty! those are my fave, just dont tell Squeaks.... she is a tortie lol. i also loved that dress the girl was wearing at the end, i have one just like it but maroon with flowers. it was a fave of mine last summer.... but just hangs in the closet now ugh ๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ’–โšพ๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ’„
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/24/2020 9:51 PM: (i've watched that movie bc it was a birthday party)
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/24/2020 9:51 PM: is it bad that i've never seen a simpsons episode
sincitymarauder (Silver Sox) at 5/24/2020 8:43 PM: My teams walk up is not what I would have selected, prefer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUwEIt9ez7M
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/24/2020 8:39 PM: Yes, they were! In the Stray Cats Strut video, I would be the old lady throwing eggs and garbage at the young punks in the alleyway. For sure! lol
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/24/2020 7:58 PM: LOL those simpsons vids are hilarious.
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/24/2020 7:57 PM: very srurpised to win the first two series
skooler1 (Bankees) at 5/24/2020 1:12 PM: Ugh, correction, every other team NOT NAMED Gunslingers... lol
skooler1 (Bankees) at 5/24/2020 1:09 PM: At least twice as many HRs as any other club after 5 games, perhaps this was the formula we were missing the last few seasons?
ragingsol (Gorillas) at 5/24/2020 1:08 PM: That's bankers for you, always looking out for A-number-1.
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/24/2020 12:57 PM: Thanks guys. All rosters are now within the league limit and weโ€™ll resume play. FA will opens tomorrow morning (Monday) at 10am Central.
skooler1 (Bankees) at 5/24/2020 12:36 PM: Sorry guys, guilty as charged, although an accidental guilt, but a guilt nonetheless, hadn't noticed my oversight until Gus PM'd me... Fixed now
Dommod (Nine) at 5/24/2020 9:51 AM: Raginsol great post ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽผ๐Ÿ“ฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ“ฝ๏ธ๐ŸŽฅ๐ŸŽฅ
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/24/2020 9:21 AM: Hahahahaha. Love the post, Raging. Great tunes indeed. Especially like "Cheater, Cheater" for those Bankees and Flibs being over the roster limit. We'll just see how good the Flibs are without Chuck Cottier! He was the glue that held the whole thing together, I'm sure. For his next contract talks, he'll be focusing on the fact that the Flibs had a 100% win rate with him on the roster. (He'll likely leave out the part that it was only 4 games and he was stuck in the minors the whole time and didn't even see the bench let alone an At Bat! lol)
RitzCards2 (Meteors) at 5/24/2020 9:20 AM: The YouTube algorithms are thoroughly confused....
RitzCards2 (Meteors) at 5/24/2020 9:13 AM: Walk-up music!!!! Great post! And great tunes! Haha.
super (Flibbertigibets) at 5/24/2020 8:44 AM: Player dropped. I knew my daily budget report looked off.
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/24/2020 6:29 AM: Oops. Commish error. I somehow forgot to ensure that all rosters were down to 30 before the Season. 2 teams are over the roster limit. The Bankees and Flibs have to drop players before our next game. Iโ€™ll send a message out to all owners and stop Sims and FA pickups for the moment. Iโ€™ll announce when FA pickups will be turned back on to give everyone a fair shot at the 3 new FAs once theyโ€™re in there. Sorry for any inconvenience. And thanks to the owner who let me know. Good catch!!
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/23/2020 8:50 PM: And the Flibs rule the roost. Only undefeated team after 3 games.
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/23/2020 7:31 PM: 12 inning affair!
skooler1 (Bankees) at 5/23/2020 5:41 PM: Lose our 2nd game to the Mud Hens 5-4 in extra innings, not too bad of a performance but could be better... lol
ragingsol (Gorillas) at 5/23/2020 5:40 PM: Go the other way with it, Ritz, make your walk-up music, "Whip It!" by Devo. It would be awesome to get your WHIP over 2.00. At 1.94 now. I, personally, am just as impressed with terrible stretches as I am with brilliant stretches by teams.
htennis (Isotopes) at 5/23/2020 3:17 PM: We did it! I can retire in peace! =)
RitzCards2 (Meteors) at 5/23/2020 1:34 PM: Congrats, htennis! Welcome to the best worst league in PC!
RitzCards2 (Meteors) at 5/23/2020 1:30 PM: BREAKING: (this story is still developing) Early reports about walkup music are saying it's Whitesnake - Here I Go Again. And when I think about it... it makes total sense. That minute-plus intro lulls the opposing batters to sleep. Out, out, out. And just as the Knights are taking their turn at the plate... the drum enters the song, and *boom* "Here I Go Again on my own!" And they rock out the rest of the game, giving Kroll the W.
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/23/2020 1:26 PM: Congrats to htennis on his first BNBL win. Over the Chuck Browns too so it actually means something!! ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ
RitzCards2 (Meteors) at 5/23/2020 1:25 PM: What is Gary Kroll's walkup music?!?!? The manager goes to the mound, taps his right wrist, and the PA announcer plays ___________ as Kroll hops in the bullpen cart for the dramatic ride to the mound. He gets his out or two or three.... and then the Knights' bats come alive. It has to be the walkup music. If there's one thing I've learned in simulated baseball games, it's that you have to have the walkup music just right. Gman has it figured out.
GusPC13 (Charlie Browns) at 5/23/2020 1:25 PM: Bre..
