I haven't been in the Championship Cup since Season 5, so could someone refresh me on how it works.

Ugh it's going to be a long night in Mobile.

Special thanks to the Raincity Objectivists for going on vacation.
And we all know it was real easy to find these pics on his computer.

Heh.. weird.

My team page shows only 17 games for the pro league.

And I looked at the standings in the pros.. looks like I squeaked out #69 in the fifth league to stay there.. I'm at number #63 for the start of the season.

I didn't think I'd make the cut as I only had .444 win %.. But I guess that was good enough to keep me in.

[annoying former Univ. of Miami FB player]Finally, the Commish has come back to the First Division.[/annoying former Univ. of Miami FB player]

A big welcome to dancinns to the First Division!

Game #4

Austin Lastros vs. Oregon Duques!



Good luck, dancinns!

[EDITED TO ADD: Not a good start for dancinns. Two pitches, one a pop fly to left that the LF 'miss'ed, second pitch a homer.]

I wonder if we're addicted to Smallball? Only two other people got in before someone in our league did. Heck, games #1 and #2 are probably from us too.

It sucks, I got game #68 this season. I seem to be slipping

Does anyone notice any sort of "improvements" yet? They used to include changes, but I haven't seen any sort of notice in the last few seasons.

I think he said he wouldn't get to it until 1-2pm CST.

So.. looks like a little bit more of a wait, as its only 9:30am CST.

Seems the same to me:
BIG 10/21/02 Oregon Duques 4 ORE 4:14 W

I like how I win game four, and my Big League ranking is 117.

Hmmm... Eight home runs in one game. At this rate, if I can play a Good Fellas amount of games, I'll have 2,400 home runs!!!

Oops... I was sick most of the weekend, so I'll get you one tonight.

Note to self... Don't play DarkElf for your first game after training. Amazingly I'm only losing 8-3 in the 8th.

Note to all: I have my new lefty and one of my rookies in, and I'm not training until tonight (going for that double shot of pie ). Let's see how these guys do.

Feel free to challenge me. I'll return the challenge if you're 9*.

You can have one of mine. Want me to email it to you or post in here?


BTW I see you made it up to the 4th league. Congrats. Sadly I was in position #31 so I was the first not to make it Maybe next season, but at least there is still many DTSL members around for me to lose to.

That would explain why the game is a lot closer than I thought.

#105

Edit: Wow, I actually won the game 15-14! A small victory for me even if you have new players in.

Im in. Game #228
But I seem to have just lost my ninth star. Kept it for almost 24 hours so I think they are close. Good luck. Of course its the Farmers bringing some heat.

Yeah, I was speculating in the other thread that you'd finish 1 place out of advancing. Better luck this season, now that you're not "new" in that league.
