Weird... Woke up today and my smallball team page was still showing 9*.

Challenged my team with my scrub teams and it was showing 8* in the play windows.

Just looked at my team page again, and it is updated with new games and it still shows 9*...

if my team truly is at 9* still, this will be 20 hours I've held my 9th *

Just checked your team and they are showing 9*.
Remember what others have reported that their team will fluctuate between 8 & 9* within the same day even without training. I mean they can go down to 8* and then for no apparent reason go up to 9* again. This actually happened to me. Anyways, congrats.

Dancinns: The score submitted for my game with the Porkers yesterday is wrong. This is the game and the score, Porkers beat me up bad.

BIG 10/22/02 Pork Chop Express 15536 PCE 12:20 L

The score and game that is recorded for the Monsters/Porkers is the Pig's game versus the Gay team. I scored one more run than the GAY team did and want the proper credit!

I can see how this mistake happened. The GAY team has "Big Gay Pete", I have "Big Pete" West. However my "Big Pete" is not, I repeat, not GAY. My Pete is a righty, the GAY teams Pete is a lefty. This is not my "Pete" playing for both teams as a switch hitter!

My Poor T-sips are currently losing 60-0 with only 1 out in the first inning. We just might see a 100 run game.
My largest victory was 80-0. I've heard of scores over well over 100 though...

[me sounding like DarkElf]My biggest margin of victory was on August 22nd. A 1* team challenged me, and after scoring 6 runs in the bottom of the first with no outs, he turns 2. Then I reel off 86 straight runs before he makes the third out. Final score 92-0 after one complete. Very few home runs in that game, like 6 or 7, IIRC...[/me sounding like DarkElf]

The only thing I can tell you about my 80-0 game was that it was Aug 17 against Woman I Love, a 1* team. I hit 6 home runs and A.C. struck out all 3 batters he faced.

No. Closest I've come was about 3 bricks from the top. But I don't hit long home runs in training. Fred's team has some guys that can probably clear that wall though.

No here either. I have 3 players who hit over 600' in the cage when forced power, one of which hits 380' homeruns in games, but they have never come close that I am aware of. Did I mention that I hate that stadium?

I actually kind of like it. If you're prepared for it, it's not really that hard for a power team to win in that stadium...

I've seen The Masher hit one 382 ft over the wall. Mostly my guys bounce it off of it though, but a few have the potential to do it.

Yeah, I agree with you. I have a winning record in both of the new stadiums, (except when playing WhoGirl in the Brickyard), but I still dont like them. I like my games to be more like real baseball, you know like the World Series.

I like the brickyard. Speed and good defense will get you some victories.

Of course, the fine print is, the only way to make the list is to initiate at least 10 games.

Getting from 9.2 to 9.3 is a bitch....

Not that I really care, but if the following were the scores for two games you initiated against me today, which one of these games would you report the score for?

BIG 10/23/02 Rhode Island Generals 17370 RIG 4:1 W
BIG 10/23/02 Rhode Island Generals 18156 RIG 6:4 W

The second was reported. Wonder if that would have been the case if I had lost the second game. Sure, it gives me two more runs scored, but it gives me three more runs against. Maybe I should start initiating multiple games and reporting the score for the one I do the best in.

It should be the first game. I'll fix it so that the first game is the one that shows up on the DTSL webpage
