The Promotion & Relegation League

League Chat Box


Opening Day for Season 4!

Opening Day is upon us!

We have two new owners in our league, eager to turn their franchises around and compete for promotion. The Dominican Republic has risen from D3 to D2 to D1 in consecutive years. Can they go from expansion team to World Series favorite so quickly? In their way stands Italy and Mexico, the 1-2 teams the past two years, poised for another run at the title, which they have split. D1 also hosts Mongolia, with the 3rd-most wins in league history, and the always-dangerous South Africa and New Zealand teams.

In Division 2, former World Series champ Peru is eager to regain promotion into D1 after narrowly missing it last year. Newcomer Togo won D3 last year and is looking to prove their worth in the middle division. The competition should be tight with a strong Japan club and an up-and-coming Kazakhstan team.

Division 3 was a very balanced division last year, with only 5 games separating the teams that weren't promoted. Most of our new owners are in this division, ready to ascend the league ladder.

Let the games begin!

All-Star Break

The pandemic-plagued season 3 has reached its midpoint, and all three divisions have tight races. In Division 1, Italy and Mexico are once again leading the pack, tied atop the standings. Newly-promoted Dominican Republic is leading Division 2 and newly-relegated Kazakhstan, under new ownership, is setting the pace atop D3.

Opening Day for Season 3!

Like the rest of the sports world, the P & R League has felt the consequences of the Coronavirus. Opening Day was pushed back a day due to the Commish having an extremely busy work day trying to handle unforeseen situations due to the pandemic. However, league sources confirm the intent to continue on as scheduled.

Season 3 is met with great anticipation after the first full season of three full divisions. Defending champ Italy is eager to get on the diamond, and so are their rivals in D1. D1 newcomers New Zealand and South Africa, after barely missing promotion after Season 1 are ready to show what they can do at the highest level. In D2, the Dominican Republic is the first expansion team to reach that level and should make for a competitive division. Meanwhile, some promising new ownership in D3 will make for a intriguing race to see who can earn promotion.

We are all looking for a fantastic season as we all endure the Coronavirus and its effects. Let the games begin!

Latest Public Board Post
5/31/2020Miami Marlins/ Fave Teams AutosJayslater1223
So, awhile ago I started on the quest to win a an Auto League-Fave Teams ring with all 30 franchises...

If you've ever participated in the Best of the Best custom leagues, you know Miami is perhaps THE toughest roster build, and that's using plus players (BOTB2) and an upgrade system (original BOTB)

Yankeebb won a FT Auto ring with them in the 'Range Factor' era..

I do believe I'm the first to nail one down with them in 'dWAR era' ..

It took winning a WC game, beating a 23-0 Jacob deGrom (who pitched into the 10th) and a solid Mets club in Game 7 of the LCS, and going six with a tough Cubs club to get the job done...
That leaves just the Royals and Brewers now left on the list. Wish me luck
