Whenever you want. I think Pharoh said he was going to start around 7 p.m. PT. I'm ready for games as well. Not sure about TDD...

When you start a game, post the teams and game number. I'll check the scores of the games and update the results in the table.

It's amazing how every season, we have problems getting 2 people together to play a playoff series. But we always manage to get the 4 CC participants together. Makes the Cup very exciting!

The dvdtalk.com all stars have been updated to reflect the top 12 from last season..

and for anyone that thinks they got a 'benchie'.. I actually attempted to get the all stars to drop out of the pro leagues all together last season.. and some how, they advanved
I was going to do that.. so I could spend this entire season rotating every player in and out and cross training players, and giving everyone an opportunity to try every position (except pitcher).. they will be a very easy 8* team this season, even easier then normal.. although I guess you should count their stars before you challenge them, because if Im doing alot of moving, its possible they could even slip to 7, sometimes..

feel free to beat them often.. thats what they are here for


oh wait.. i just thought about something.. if I spend this whole season moving them around and rotating in and out.. they probably wont do very well as a 'filler' team in the 4th division
oh well.. they will be easier for the new teams to beat

Hum..really..I should train the whole team in the same skill each day? So like one day they all practice running, the next power, next contact, throwing, catching, and then start the cycle all over until I decide they need more work in just one?

I thought it would be better if each player worked on their own weakness...food for thought!

It really depends on your purpose. If you are trying to determine who is good at what, how quickly each gains skill, and how quickly they lose skill, then making all players do the same skill training is the way to go IMO.

If you want to address weaknesses, then yeah, you're right. I do this once in a while (like once every 7-10 days).

But for the most part, I tend to make them all train in the same skill together.

I think what was trying to be said was that you should train each player in just one skill with their whole pie. You have the right idea with weaknesses, but just train one skill each day. If player 1 is weak in running, train him in running for that day. Hope that helps.

Cheers

No dude, it's a pretty close game. Just scored a run to make it 5-2 in the 7th inning.

Well, no, unfortunately not.

Uh oh, I'm breaking this game open in the 8th. 3 runs in with the bases loaded and none out.

Well my offense has completely abandoned me. The Ballers lose by grounding into a 6-4-3 double play to end the game.
Final score:
Ballers 4
Overpaid Players 5

Good game McHawkson
