ragingsol (No team) at 4/3/2020 8:38 AM: There's a lot of numbers to consider, for sure. For me, it was interesting to see that the top SPs (Tyler Bey, Blackshear, Saddiq Bey) are all Ranked somewhere below 50. Saddiq Bey was in single digits in Rank for many teams, and, yet, performed very well.
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 4/3/2020 8:34 AM: I stand corrected... Blackshear might have had a marginally lower WHIP. Stats still rolling in...haha. ERA was lowest, by a longshot.
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 4/3/2020 8:33 AM: 12 games, 11 starts. 77 IP and 1.18 WHIP (lowest of all SPs). 5-2 record, 1 SV, 2.92 ERA (lowest of all SPs). The man did a lot with his limited chances!
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 4/3/2020 8:28 AM: I didn't want to say anything while games were still going on, but Jahmi'us Ramsey gets my vote for most underrated in the entire tournament.
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 4/3/2020 8:27 AM: Congrats to Goldencane14 and Samwhitworth! (And jaykuntz18, and LeeJ!) And thank you, Ragingsol!
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 4/3/2020 8:25 AM: On the standings page, it looks like I'm the 2-seed. When do playoffs start? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

yankeebb (yankeebb) at 4/2/2020 11:09 AM: Congrats goldencane! What a run. Sam too, well done
htennis (htennis) at 4/2/2020 10:57 AM: CONGRATS
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 4/2/2020 9:43 AM: Wow. Did not expect this at all
SamWhitworth (SamWhitworth) at 4/2/2020 9:34 AM: Well that was pretty pathetic
jimgriddy (jimgriddy) at 4/1/2020 6:28 AM: At least I took a final 4 team to 7. Gotta find that silver lining
jimgriddy (jimgriddy) at 4/1/2020 6:27 AM: lol
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 4/1/2020 6:04 AM: I've learned a lot from COVID. One of them is: I need this next March, much more than I need the NCAA tournament.
ragingsol (No team) at 3/31/2020 8:35 PM: Both teams have been granted 4 days off.
GusPC13 (GusPC13) at 3/31/2020 6:47 PM: This is better than real life right now! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ˜†
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/31/2020 5:37 PM: Congrats you two. Make it go 7!
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 3/31/2020 3:13 PM: Consolation, not semi.
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 3/31/2020 3:13 PM: Good luck! I hope it goes 6 games!! (Semi-final, too!)
leej (LeeJ) at 3/31/2020 2:33 PM: congrats SamWhitworth, good luck in the finals
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/31/2020 12:22 PM: Either of me or jay couldve easily gone on to the final. Ive been incredibly lucky with the timing of my multiple run homeruns, and not sure when my luck will run out. Best of luck, sam!
SamWhitworth (SamWhitworth) at 3/31/2020 12:14 PM: Good series Lee! Knew I kept Crutcher in the lineup for a reason. 1 for his last 27 coming into the game and hits a massive grand slam. Good luck Goldencane! Donโ€™t love the fact that Iโ€™m on the road my splits are pretty wild home/away.
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 3/31/2020 9:39 AM: I was doing some analysis along the way, but ran into a LeeJ buzzsaw, for which the analysis was no match.
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 3/31/2020 9:36 AM: What time are the Game 7's? Can't find it on Verizon Fios. Must not have the right cable package.
htennis (htennis) at 3/31/2020 9:12 AM: hey skooler, you're supposed to do the stat analysis and tell me the info =)
htennis (htennis) at 3/31/2020 9:12 AM: game 7s will be intense!
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/31/2020 6:54 AM: Absolute scenes
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/31/2020 5:14 AM: Two game 7s, nice
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/30/2020 7:25 PM: Shhh! Don't say that around the stats nuts (like Jay, Yankee, and your's truly... lol)
htennis (htennis) at 3/29/2020 9:52 PM: wonder if there's some stat analysis we can do after all this =)
ragingsol (No team) at 3/29/2020 7:44 PM: Final Four is airing live on ESPN2 and simulcast on CBS. Only immediate family is given access to the stadiums.
fullerr44 (fullerr44) at 3/29/2020 2:12 PM: Can I get tickets to the Final Four ?
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/29/2020 12:25 PM: Thanks for the vote of confidence Gus... ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
jwbsavages (jwbsavages) at 3/29/2020 10:20 AM: goodbye illbe here next year
ragingsol (No team) at 3/29/2020 9:35 AM: Final Four has started! User sims are on for Game 2.
GusPC13 (GusPC13) at 3/29/2020 6:20 AM: Saw that, Skooler. I have low expectations of you so didnโ€™t think of it as a screwup so much as a regular Skooler being Skooler kind of thing. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/29/2020 6:19 AM: @gus damn you caught me!
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/29/2020 6:19 AM: ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/29/2020 5:54 AM: How did no one catch I accidentally said "Elite 4" instead of "Final 4"? I just caught it myself! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
ragingsol (No team) at 3/28/2020 8:53 PM: All Final Four teams have been granted Four days off, finally.
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/28/2020 8:52 PM: Lol, not third best , fifth best.... very twisted logic . Good luck !
SamWhitworth (SamWhitworth) at 3/28/2020 8:51 PM: Iโ€™ll take any support I can get haha
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/28/2020 8:49 PM: SamWhit beat me in the Sweet 16, I have to root for him,. That way I can argue (poorly) that I was 3rd best
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/28/2020 8:46 PM: Lol
ragingsol (No team) at 3/28/2020 8:45 PM: A caravan of M.I.T. scientists couldn't have figured out your offense in this year's tournament, Gus.
GusPC13 (GusPC13) at 3/28/2020 8:37 PM: No fair! Goldy is using Lattice Quantumchromodynamics. If I'd known we were allowed to do that, I'd have definitely definitely used some gluans to quark the offense in my first round series.
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/28/2020 8:07 PM: Congrats samwhitworth on a job well done! Your pitching was the key. Good luck to you the rest of the way, and the same to the other 3 elite 4 competitors as well! Give the rest of us a good show! Lol
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/28/2020 8:01 PM: Crazy stuff, I keep getting lucky with these homeruns
fullerr44 (fullerr44) at 3/28/2020 7:12 PM: That was a fun series goldencane, great job coming back from 3-1 !
SamWhitworth (SamWhitworth) at 3/28/2020 6:52 PM: Good series Skooler! Canโ€™t believe I won a seven game series only scoring 14 runs.
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/28/2020 6:48 PM: That was probably the most nailbiting series I have watched to date. Well played, fuller!
GusPC13 (GusPC13) at 3/28/2020 12:25 PM: Lol. Still cheering for you. And quoting the Fonz just increases your stock.
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/28/2020 11:40 AM: Saw that coming, Gus! Well to heck with ya! Jk lol
fullerr44 (fullerr44) at 3/28/2020 11:35 AM: My first game attended was in 1980 or 81. Red Sox were in Toronto and I saw Yaz hit a homer off jim Clancy, and it was cold.
leej (LeeJ) at 3/28/2020 11:30 AM: First game attended Twins v Red Sox in The Met The only thing I remember besides all the people was Yaz going yard.
leej (LeeJ) at 3/28/2020 11:12 AM: That might have been the first game I watched.
fullerr44 (fullerr44) at 3/28/2020 11:05 AM: Sorry Gus, but the first televised baseball game I watched was in 1978 and Bucky Dent hit a homer to crush my soul and cost me 25 cents ( to my grandma ). I have been a Red Sox fan ever since. The only Twins I have ever liked were Candi and Randi from Happy Days AAAAAAAY
GusPC13 (GusPC13) at 3/28/2020 10:38 AM: Fullerr44 is my new favourite (Canadian spelling). Skooler falls to least favourite with his stinging anti-Twins comments. Go Fuller! Now if we could get you to like the Twins, maybe we could be best friends. Lol
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/28/2020 10:37 AM: Sorry couldn't help myself lol
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/28/2020 10:36 AM: Gus, what's wrong with being a Yankees fan? Feeling buthurt after playoff defeats in 2017 AND 2019 I assume? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
fullerr44 (fullerr44) at 3/28/2020 10:26 AM: I am Canadian and play hockey. All hail Bobby Orr! My hair looks like Derek Sanderson's in the early 70's.
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/28/2020 9:46 AM: ๐Ÿ˜‰
GusPC13 (GusPC13) at 3/28/2020 9:25 AM: Skooler's a Yankees fan, so he's out. Both LeeJ and Erwin are Milwaukee fans?? Weird.
GusPC13 (GusPC13) at 3/28/2020 9:24 AM: Yeah, well who isn't studying lattice quantumchromodynamics, goldy? Ho hum. I was hoping for something unique!! Lol - thanks for the laugh.
ragingsol (No team) at 3/28/2020 8:57 AM: Thus far, I'm rooting for everyone equally.
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/28/2020 8:17 AM: I yam a boi who is a self proclaimed proletariat that dreams of a revolution against the cheating, n00b fleecing, absurd trading bourgeoisie of this site and am also studying lattice quantumchromodynamics along with some greek and roman classics on the side and hail Homer as my third parent, ontology is a b0ss. I also have a pornhub subscription and am a certified shoveler, and also do some scratch art on the side. I consider myself as a memelord and none, some, or all the things i have justed said may or may not be true, and may be me just memeing. Root for us 2 thirteen seeds!!
Erwin23 (Erwin23) at 3/28/2020 8:03 AM: Iโ€™m a twenty year old from the Netherlands (Europe). English isnโ€™t my first language, so sorry for the mistakes. I study physiotherapy and Iโ€™m in my second year now. I play baseball for about 15 years now. Iโ€™m still single and I canโ€™t cut my own hair, so I go to the barber if my hair is to long. I enjoy the Marvel movies, House, NCIS and movies like Patch Adams. I listen a lot of Joe Cocker, Phil Collins, Billy Jo๏ฟฝl, Michael Bolton, Zendaya and Thunderstorm Artis.
jaykuntz18 (jaykuntz18) at 3/28/2020 7:42 AM: I work at a 2-year Technical College and oversee all of the Housing. My wife cuts my hair since there is not much left on top. I played college baseball and sang in the college choir. I have 2 boys (5th/3rd graders). I coach youth baseball and youth hoops. Enjoy Star Wars, Marvel, MTV's The Challenge, & Top Chef.
GusPC13 (GusPC13) at 3/28/2020 7:25 AM: Now that weโ€™re getting down to the last couple rounds I need to know some more about these guys so I can decide who Iโ€™m cheering for. So tell us a couple things about yourselves! Do you do Pilates? Own your own island? Play the banjo? Belong to a cult? Cut your own hair? Watch soap operas? Have a grow-op in your basement? Sing in a barbershop quartet? Collect salt and pepper shakers? Tell us something that will set you apart and turn you into the crowd favorite!! Thanks!
todorojo (todorojo) at 3/28/2020 5:51 AM: Congrats LeeJ! Good luck in the Final 4!
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/27/2020 6:32 PM: Yes! My team tied it at 2 games apiece lol
SinCityMarauder (SinCityMarauder) at 3/27/2020 12:05 PM: I enjoyed this as well, even though I got bounced in the 1st round. I really like the no trading rule as well, while good drafting can win you a Championship as Classico's said, a Bad owner who gets fleeced can also COST you a Championship. At least if you lose in this format it's either bad line up choices or just a bad rub of the green
BaltimoreChop (BaltimoreChop) at 3/27/2020 11:14 AM: Next year? Run it back now!
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/27/2020 4:21 AM: Oof down 0-2 now. Gotta get into gear or we're not gonna make it...
bhicks42 (bhicks42) at 3/27/2020 3:35 AM: Iโ€™ve also enjoyed this. Love to get an invite for year 2.
ragingsol (No team) at 3/26/2020 6:02 PM: Game 1 of Elite 8 simmed. User Sims are on. Good luck to all.
ragingsol (No team) at 3/26/2020 4:57 PM: All teams have been granted 4 days off.
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/26/2020 4:14 PM: Less than 2 hours left till my showdown with SamWhitworth begins. Good luck to you bud, and to the other 6 people who are in the elite 8 too
Bgs (Bgs) at 3/26/2020 3:17 PM: I'm sticking around. But just wanted to say this was fun. And a really cool idea. Thanks Sol for having me .
leej (LeeJ) at 3/26/2020 9:19 AM: thanks, was a little worried after game 1
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 3/26/2020 8:48 AM: Best of luck to LeeJ! Smoked me!
todorojo (todorojo) at 3/26/2020 5:21 AM: Thanks bip.
bip (bip) at 3/26/2020 3:11 AM: Congrats todorojo, good luck in the next round
todorojo (todorojo) at 3/25/2020 7:29 PM: ClassicO's, you described many of the other Custom leagues. You should check some of them out! This one is unique because everyone has the same players - tactics over strategy.
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/25/2020 6:59 PM: ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/25/2020 6:49 PM: Haha very kind of you, gk, good series! Lots of fun, bring it home ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
ClassicOs (ClassicOs) at 3/25/2020 5:52 PM: Big props to ragingsol for this though. Congrats for getting me to jump in the custom league end of the pool
ClassicOs (ClassicOs) at 3/25/2020 5:50 PM: Fun tournament. Bit of a coin flip since everyone has the same rosters and drafts is how elite PC guys win the way they do but still fun. Would be cool to see some sort of auto draft feature before hand where people have to make tough choices to build lineups in the future that way you get more diverse lineups and more of a chance to for owners to show off their PC skills.
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/25/2020 5:49 PM: Gg Mike, you were a few bombs away from turning it around
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/25/2020 4:41 PM: Thanks, glad to have had the honor to face you, since I didn't think I'd make it this far in the first place lol
Jsmathiot (jsmathiot) at 3/25/2020 4:12 PM: Great job Skooler, left no doubt about it!
fullerr44 (fullerr44) at 3/25/2020 3:09 PM: This tournament is fantastic! I appreciate all of the hard work that went into making this (props to ragingsol) I have never been so eager to wait for game results. Great Competition !
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/25/2020 2:58 PM: Thanks bud! I am honestly shocked that I made it this far lol
bhicks42 (bhicks42) at 3/25/2020 1:44 PM: Uh oh. Skooler pinches his ticket to the elite 8!! Congrats!!
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 3/25/2020 1:20 PM: This was a lot more fun when I was winning. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Still fun! Excellent idea, Raging!
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/25/2020 5:09 AM: Wow, down 3-0 excellent
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/24/2020 7:30 AM: ๐Ÿ˜‚
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/24/2020 6:58 AM: Yeah a real good showing of my intellect right there ๐Ÿ˜‚ looking forward to it too, should be a good one
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/24/2020 6:50 AM: Lookin forward to playing against the man who beat yankee
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/24/2020 6:38 AM: Lol Iโ€™m an idiot and just consulted the rules and see seeding has changed. Iโ€™ll just be over here, sitting quietly, for the duration ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/24/2020 6:31 AM: Also bip/todorojo and jaykuntz/williams
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/24/2020 6:27 AM: Think the Ritz/LeeJ series has a similar issue
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/24/2020 6:26 AM: Hey Sol, looks like maybe thereโ€™s been a scheduling mistake, if itโ€™s by seeding I think I should have home field in my matchup, unless Iโ€™m not understanding correctly
ragingsol (No team) at 3/24/2020 1:14 AM: All teams have been granted four days off.
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/23/2020 10:34 PM: Damn several Tyler Beys are dominating the top 10 Cy Young voting lol
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/23/2020 10:31 PM: Ahhh... yeah honestly I almost did the same myself, but caught it at the last second, literally right before hitting the submit button lol
Sabotage (Sabotage) at 3/23/2020 9:33 PM: He's taking it out on you because I referred to him as GoldenFrog. My bad. ๐Ÿ˜‚
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/23/2020 9:26 PM: Lol
skooler1 (skooler1) at 3/23/2020 9:26 PM: Thanks thegoldenfrog. I'm so glad I won I'm going to completely overlook the fact that you misspelled my username... ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ
hitter (hitter) at 3/23/2020 8:11 PM: Dramatic is the best way to describe it. Good luck the rest of the way
todorojo (todorojo) at 3/23/2020 7:11 PM: Hitter, you had us on the ropes. Very dramatic series. I'm shocked we were able to dig ourselves out of that hole.
TheGoldenFog (TheGoldenFog) at 3/23/2020 7:07 PM: Schooler1 great series! Good luck the rest of the way. Ragingsoul, thanks for putting this together. It was a lot of fun!
hitter (hitter) at 3/23/2020 7:03 PM: I lost on a No-No. wow. I had the worst pitching in the tourney! Canโ€™t believe I made it as far as I did with that
bip (bip) at 3/23/2020 6:51 PM: Great series kds4316...no shortage of close games and drama
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/23/2020 6:05 PM: ๐Ÿ‘
jim2miller (jim2miller) at 3/23/2020 4:52 PM: Gg Cane, ten inning game seven!
ragingsol (No team) at 3/23/2020 3:40 PM: Stay and see how the tournament finishes, reserve a spot for 2021. Or, quit the league and tell your grandchildren about the time you played in The Big Dance.
jwbsavages (jwbsavages) at 3/23/2020 3:08 PM: i lost so now what
ragingsol (No team) at 3/23/2020 12:47 PM: Game 7's in the Round of 32 will be played tonight (Monday night). The Sweet Sixteen will tip off on Tuesday, at 9 AM PST (noon EST).
mcvn4 (mcvn4) at 3/23/2020 10:57 AM: i wonder how much trash talking is going on between jmathiot and lasershow
mcvn4 (mcvn4) at 3/23/2020 10:56 AM: 3 series that had a 3-0 lead and are now tied 3-3. 2 series that had a 3-0 lead and won 5-0
htennis (htennis) at 3/23/2020 10:51 AM: unless no series went 7, right? doesn't matter regardless here
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/23/2020 10:51 AM: @jim2miller, gg mate
ragingsol (No team) at 3/23/2020 10:47 AM: Extra games don't matter in this format. Nevertheless, the series that are ended have had remaining games deleted.
htennis (htennis) at 3/23/2020 10:45 AM: oh i guess it was just ritzcards' series
ragingsol (No team) at 3/23/2020 10:45 AM: Thanks, kds. It would have been more electric if the NCAAs were filling up the airwaves with all the players we are all watching here, but we're doing okay as is.
htennis (htennis) at 3/23/2020 10:44 AM: wait guys, don't do any more user sims until raging gets on and deletes games
kds4316 (kds4316) at 3/23/2020 8:26 AM: Shout out to ragingsol for creating such a great tournament! Well done, sir.
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/23/2020 6:08 AM: Thanks, yankee! Fingers crossed. Good and crazy series, always fun playing you
sincitymarauder (SinCityMarauder) at 3/23/2020 5:51 AM: Games are still simming in Series that are already over...
RitzCards2 (RitzCards2) at 3/23/2020 5:20 AM: htennis, i'm going to do my best. I'd like to think my winning is all about skill. But then there are all of those other leagues I'm in....
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/23/2020 5:16 AM: Thanks Hani, strange series . Hopefully the luck stays with me !
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/23/2020 4:52 AM: Win it all Mike, so I can say I was second best
hani (hani) at 3/23/2020 3:54 AM: gg sleazy
hani (hani) at 3/23/2020 3:53 AM: Another painful game to watch. Choked a 5-1 lead, tied in the ninth down 8-5 and lost to a walkoff in the 10th
Sabotage (Sabotage) at 3/22/2020 8:00 PM: I need another miracle. The bats have gone silent.
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/22/2020 7:11 PM: Another crazy game, Mike
Jayslater1223 (JaySlater1223) at 3/22/2020 6:50 PM: JFC. Walked off after all the fight to stay in that contest. Oh well. Congrats Williams.
hani (hani) at 3/22/2020 6:48 PM: bullpen didnt screw up for once!
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/22/2020 6:19 PM: Interesting man... or shall i say a group of people, lol
ragingsol (No team) at 3/22/2020 6:10 PM: Googled Bourbaki. That's fascinating. Thanks, goldencane.

ragingsol (No team) at 3/22/2020 4:34 PM: There isn't a mathematician alive or dead who could disprove that theory, htennis.
GusPC13 (GusPC13) at 3/22/2020 4:33 PM: Absolutely! lol
htennis (htennis) at 3/22/2020 4:07 PM: hey if ritzcards wins the whole thing, technically i could be the second best owner, right? ;)
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/22/2020 3:45 PM: Itโ€™s a tough position to be in, good luck !
hani (hani) at 3/22/2020 2:20 PM: Alright I made my lineup without regard for defense in the hopes I score enough runs so that the bullpen doesnโ€™t blow it again...
GusPC13 (GusPC13) at 3/22/2020 1:50 PM: Are you talking to all of us, or just Jesus?
Jayslater1223 (JaySlater1223) at 3/22/2020 12:42 PM: Jesus. I truly don't understand. Everything I started micromanaging in R1 was working. I let things be, trusted my gut and percentages a little more and its backfiring 2 gms in a row now. Smh
bip (bip) at 3/22/2020 12:18 PM: Does Jayslater1223 have another miracle comeback up his sleeve?
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/22/2020 10:35 AM: I mean won at least one of them, Maybe both
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/22/2020 10:34 AM: Wild 2 games in a row Hani, bad luck ... you certainly should have won 2 of them... the bullpens are huge wildcards ... no consistency , I was actually thrilled my bullpen arm ended up being the long reliever
hani (hani) at 3/22/2020 10:19 AM: crutcher was an mvp on both sides though
hani (hani) at 3/22/2020 10:18 AM: **** thats the second straight game that the bullpen blew the game
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/22/2020 5:56 AM: Yeah, a lot of GIDP
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/22/2020 5:55 AM: Hani, wild end to the game ! I still want to win the series, but would actually prefer more games like that and a long series . No idea how to organize these bullpens , itโ€™s crazy
hani (hani) at 3/22/2020 4:13 AM: all those gidp cost me
hani (hani) at 3/22/2020 4:13 AM: damn nice game 2 sleazy. I was watching and thought we lost going into the 9th, happy that we rallied for five runs to take the lead and then I lose on a walkoff in the bottom of the inning
hani (hani) at 3/21/2020 6:43 PM: Iโ€™ll blame this loss on the delay :)
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/21/2020 6:36 PM: Great game. Both pens failed in 9th
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/21/2020 6:01 PM: Good game
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/21/2020 6:00 PM: Wild G1 yankee
ragingsol (No team) at 3/21/2020 5:55 PM: Game 1 simmed. yankee is right, I had to sim the first. Round of 32 is now live.
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/21/2020 5:45 PM: They might be on but pretty sure he has to sim the first before the timer starts for next game
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/21/2020 5:21 PM: Donโ€™t appear to be, Iโ€™ve messaged Ragin
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/21/2020 5:19 PM: Wait is it on?
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/21/2020 5:11 PM: Lezzgo
ragingsol (No team) at 3/21/2020 5:03 PM: User Sims are on. Round of 32 is live.
ClassicOs (ClassicOs) at 3/21/2020 4:15 PM: Hoosiers
Sabotage (Sabotage) at 3/21/2020 4:03 PM: Name the movie
Sabotage (Sabotage) at 3/21/2020 4:03 PM: Bonus pts if anyone can make the movie
Sabotage (Sabotage) at 3/21/2020 4:01 PM: As a 62nd seed( and Golden frog too #63 seed)......Let's win this one for all the small schools that never had a chance to get here!!
Llorac (Llorac) at 3/21/2020 3:42 PM: That is fun. Good luck jsmathiot!
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/21/2020 1:51 PM: Thatโ€™s great!
GusPC13 (GusPC13) at 3/21/2020 1:01 PM: No way! That's so cool. Good luck to your son! lol
jsmathiot (jsmathiot) at 3/21/2020 12:58 PM: Facing my son now...sure there is nothing he'd like more to do than to take the old man down!
Jayslater1223 (JaySlater1223) at 3/21/2020 11:27 AM: I wasnt even referring to myslef per se.
ragingsol (No team) at 3/21/2020 10:48 AM: I'm not doing my best, but, as yankee says, everyone knows their opponents. I will get to the schedules several hours before tip off, just not now.
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/21/2020 10:41 AM: You know your opponent already
Jayslater1223 (JaySlater1223) at 3/21/2020 10:36 AM: I know you're doing your best Raging, can we get those Rd 2 matchups up ASAP? How some set lineups and rotations may be dependent upon their opponents plans.
SamWhitworth (SamWhitworth) at 3/21/2020 10:34 AM: Only two of the higher seeds from the South made it out of the first round
Polski (Polski) at 3/21/2020 9:42 AM: Thanks raging... it was really nice being part of this!
BearDillon (BearDillon) at 3/21/2020 9:03 AM: Had fun playing! Great job commish and good luck the rest of the way @Jayslater.
ragingsol (No team) at 3/21/2020 9:00 AM: Schedules aren't done, yet. Tip off is in 8 hours.
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/21/2020 8:56 AM: Thanks hicks ! I donโ€™t see any games on my schedule ....
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/21/2020 8:53 AM: Really weird group of players , but love it. As said by others, weโ€™ll done Ranging,
bhicks42 (bhicks42) at 3/21/2020 8:50 AM: Hey congrats on your upset Sleazye
ragingsol (No team) at 3/21/2020 8:33 AM: 4 Days off have been granted to all teams.
Sleazye (SleazyE) at 3/21/2020 8:32 AM: Dang, was rooting for BHicks
bhicks42 (bhicks42) at 3/21/2020 8:28 AM: Well crap. I was up 3-1 and lost 3 in a row. Good luck jimgriddy
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/21/2020 8:16 AM: Top seeds won less than half, not really a surprise
Jayslater1223 (JaySlater1223) at 3/21/2020 7:59 AM: Been awhile since anything PC had me onthe edge of my seat...but great job Raging, this is exciting stuff and certainly should become a once-a-year thing.. Hats off to Sabotage, who somehow as a #16, came back from 0-3 to down a #1 seeded rfb60609
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/21/2020 7:53 AM: ๋‚ด๋กœ๋‚จ๋ถˆ
goldencane14 (goldencane14) at 3/21/2020 7:52 AM: L m a o
Jayslater1223 (JaySlater1223) at 3/21/2020 7:47 AM: Whew. My goodness. I second guessed so many little things down 3-0, but we somehow pulled off the 0-3 comeback.. Great series BearDillon, you had me certain I'd be gone early.
hitter (hitter) at 3/21/2020 7:44 AM: gg josh!
joshanddez (joshanddez) at 3/21/2020 7:29 AM: Bye bye.
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/21/2020 7:29 AM: Appreciate that. Thanks, Sol!
ragingsol (No team) at 3/21/2020 7:26 AM: Agreed. Wanted some bit of strategy between rounds, but only GMs who closed in 5 would be affected, since, presumably the ace pitched Game 5 for everyone.
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/21/2020 7:05 AM: Mike is right about that. best to give 4 days off, eliminates all injuries and resets all rotations
jimgriddy (jimgriddy) at 3/21/2020 6:42 AM: sol, thanks for advice on "aging" on commish corner. the 1 and 99 thing worked fine. thanks again.
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/21/2020 6:20 AM: If not*
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/21/2020 6:15 AM: No big deal off not, just a little specific frustration that only would affect a handful of the owners. And considering Iโ€™ve already been rewarded with a matchup with yankeebb for winning, trying to get what I can ๐Ÿ˜‚
MikeSpaz (MikeSpaz) at 3/21/2020 6:14 AM: If thatโ€™s the case, any way we can just make it four days off? A little specific and personal in my case, but with three, it seems only the teams who won in exactly six games will suffer, since weโ€™re the ones whoโ€™ll have to start without our #1 SPs. Even teams who went all the way will theoretically get this back, since theyโ€™ll have started in their game 6 and gotten their game 7 off
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/21/2020 4:51 AM: Gotcha.
ragingsol (No team) at 3/21/2020 4:47 AM: No, yankee, teams who closed early are also only getting 3 days of rest. All teams going to the Round of 32 will be granted 3 PC days off when the Game 7s sim.
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/21/2020 4:43 AM: Mine didnโ€™t either when that game 6 played. They should be though.
yankeebb (yankeebb) at 3/21/2020 4:41 AM: Sam, theyโ€™ll get rest as the other series still play games. Then 3 more afterwards.
ragingsol (No team) at 3/21/2020 4:33 AM: @SamWhitworth, 3 PC days off will be granted after the Game 7's are played. I was confusing in a previous reply on the subject of Days Off, but the intention is for all teams to have the same Days Off, no matter when a series is completed. 3 PC Days off will be granted after the next sim, and, then, on to the Round of 32.
ragingsol (No team) at 3/21/2020 4:30 AM: Thanks, Bhgray and the others who have left notes. I appreciate the good words.
Bhgray (bhgray) at 3/21/2020 4:15 AM: Tough week for me on PC. Sad to be leaving this one so soon. Sol, great job with the league and concept. Cant wait till 2021!
SamWhitworth (SamWhitworth) at 3/21/2020 12:02 AM: Not sure if this has been addressed already, but it doesnโ€™t look like days of rest after winning a series are being counted. For example my pitcher from game 5 still needs 4 days rest and Cowan is still out 2 games.
Jayslater1223 (JaySlater1223) at 3/20/2020 11:51 PM: Well the Bacc gets the job done, meanwhile 9 Game 7's coming up in Rd1..
