Game Two: 61826, in the Brickyard! I'm winless in this park...

I wonder how many I'll bang off the Brick Monster.

And what if you wait until the last second to initiate Game 2? Should he have to wait around all day for you to train your players?

It's playoff time: train in the morning and wait for things to happen. Your ability to win Game 3 is independent of when Game 2 is initiated.

I can't, because I tried to log on Internet and had problem with the connection. Only way I can get in Internet is restart the computer and it work for few minutes (10 minutes top). Training request Internet connection.

It doesn't make sense because the professional baseball don't go ahead play Game 5 while they didn't play Game 2, 3, or 4.

**** it, I can't get the Internet working properly. I'm tired of restart the computer... I guess it's impossible for me to start training my players till it's completely fixed.

I will have to resign the DVDtalk.com league, just till the connection fixed.

In real life sports, the outcome of one game affects the performance in another. In SmallBall, it doesn't matter.

Anyway, Express is playing the Duques in the most absurd statium ever conceived. #61895

DarkElf & WhoGirl,
Great game going on so far. That double play in the second inning was a new one though. (Cant you tell that I am really bored tonight). Anyways its been entertaining, especially considering how I always lose to the Destroyers.

And did I mention how much I love the brickyard?

Yeah, me too. These new stadiums suck!



You get a lot of weird plays with the damn_wall.

I too like the familiar. Give me the Intel stadium anyday along with a 12-9 loss like the one I suffered tonight to the Destroyers, (though I'd take a win anyway I could). 12 total homers hit, not like a 2-0 game in Fox or the Brickyard.


BTW
Did anyone else read that the SB Commish is considering selling "limited edition" teams? The idea is the team# would be between 100 & 999. You would get DT and I think all of the tickets available, including duplicates of some, such as 4 lefty tickets. It would even include a full TP ticket. He is suggesting a price of $65. Sounds like a possibility.

Ugh ... the game's much less fun when you just buy your way to success. I liked how everyone started with an equivalent team.

J-Dubya -- When do you want to play our series? We can play it tonight, which is preferable so that I don't have to worry about playing any games tomorrow.

If not, let me know a time so that I can arrange my schedule for tomorrow.

Okay, I think I got the situation straight with McHawkson's and Schizopak's series. I didn't have time today to check the thread so I was clueless with the scores. I just saw what I got in my e-mail and then posted those into the playoff page. I actually don't know if the scores are correct or not. LMK what you guys want to do with this, it's your decision as to whether or not you want the games to stand as they are (McHawkson winning the series 2-1).

And to abruptly change subjects. The league once again has too many teams on the waiting list. As much as I hate to see people sitting around and waiting to get in, my hands are tied on this. I can't expand the divisions any more and I don't want to make them smaller. I don't believe there's any dead teams and even if there were some dead teams there wouldn't be enough to allow all the new teams in. So, we need to do some recruiting once again.

Before any one brings it up, I know I said this league will be for strictly DVDTalk members predating DTSL or whatever but I'm happy to get anyone in the league that'll be a great addition. Case in point, Solipsta. Great team, great contributor and no one seems to mind that Solipsta wasn't a DVDTalker first (to the best of my knowledge). I'm not saying that we could go out and recruit people from the Real.com board or other great SmallBall teams. What I'm saying is that we should allow great competition to join the league.

Unless you all know a better way to get 5 teams into the league try asking around DVDTalk, your neighborhood strip joint, the rave on Friday night, your workplace...whatever.

Gotta love them cocky rookies who haven't played a single game yet!

Training my rookies tonight, a message flashed on the screen:

"Lynn Biskit is impressed with his .000 batting average. He knows he's the best!"

dancinns, as to my series with McHawkson, the results are accurate and it should stand with McHawkson winning 2-1. I'm just wondering whether we need to formalize the playoff process. I acted in a way I saw was appropriately from both experience and tradition but McHawkson seemed to have a problem with it. I understand why he wanted the games played in order, but it can't be expected that when I initiated my first game at noon that I wait until past midnight to start my second.

HEY! To the best of your knowledge I wasn't a DVDTalker or to the best of your knowledge people don't mind me being here

(don't mind me, it's late, I'm tired thus probably a bit paranoid due to overtiredness)

Cheers

Your reasoning is legit and that's why it's almost critical that you contact your opponent to figure out some sort of schedule. All games should be played in order but of course there's circumstances where that just isn't possible. If you have to initiate game 3 then I'd try to wait as long as possible before game 2 is initiated. If you have to start game 3 before game 2 just post the fact that it's been started and reason to go with it. I don't know what McHawkson is complaining about, he won after all

other shtuff:
twikoff: , pics?

Solipsta: I remember Fred bringing you in from the Real.com forums, so That doesn't matter now, you've been nothing short of a great addition to the league. I'm really I'm getting promoted so I don't have to play you for another 2 weeks.

namrufmot: You're on the list and at the #1 position and I'll try my hardest to try to get at least you in this season. You've had to wait long enough.

J-Dubya -- You around? I was hoping to get this series done early, but I'm gonna have to run some errands throughout the day. What's is your schedule like? Maybe we can do it this evening?
