Dave - yes, we can run a "friendly" session, good idea.

Let's do that 5th Feb and I can add in more dates for the conferences if needed. When are you available?

Hmm, I can't see who has voted for what in the polls. I'll re-do it in a new thread on my break this afternoon, so everyone will have to re-vote. Sorry.

I'VE DELETED THE POLL, SEE LATEST POST FOR DOODLE POLLS

5th I am free. Can't see a poll. But perhaps it is not back up.
Certainly need a friendly as I know nothing about the game or baseball

Pre-season on Tuesday 5th Feb, then the season starts proper.

Use this Doodle poll to let me know your availability and I'll work it out from there.

I started setting up an overly complicated, but fun and completely necessary, Excel Sheet to keep track of this but it relies on a lot of manual input from me. Any excel ninjas know how to use lookups to create automatic tables and complete the playoff leagues/brackets? See attached.

To suit availability, I've swapped Tom and Ian, meaning the schedule is:

29th Jan - available for pre-season friendlies
5th Feb - available for pre-season friendlies
12th Feb - available for pre-season friendlies
19th Feb - Southern Conference (Karl, Pauly G, Kes, Ian)
5th March - Northern Conference (Tom, Mike, Dave, Liz).

Upon completion of the conferences I'll check availability for the playoffs.

Let's play ball!

The Southern Conference was played on Tuesday, results below:

Karl 5 vs Pauly G 0
Kes 5 vs Ian 0
Karl 2 vs Kes 3
Pauly G 3 vs Ian 2
Karl  4 vs Ian 1
Kes 5 vs Pauly G 0

Paul finishes above Ian on head-to-head records.

TeamGamesWonLostWin %Runs ForRuns AgainstRuns Diff
Kes (UK)1513286.67%937617
Karl (Seattle)1511473.33%776017
Pauly G (Los Angeles)1531220.00%6085-25
Ian (New York)1531220.00%6688-22

Kes and I progress to the Winner's Conference, Paul and Ian to the Runner's Up Conference.

We made a couple of decisions about the competition format, which hopefully everyone agrees on. We'll abandon the league/playoff format as it'll take weeks to sort and just have a straight 5 game series for the top and bottom 4 teams to determine overall rank.

Once the Northern Conference is complete I'll post pictures of each team's current roster, updated with free agent purchases.

The Northern Conference will play on 5th March.

I feel like there was a definite divide in experience between the top half and bottom half of the conference! Very Happy

Very fun evening though!

Definitely a game that favours experience, unfortunately for everyone that hasn't played this game every Tuesday for the last month!

I think keeping it shorter this time and then thinking about another format for a future competition is a good idea. Paul was explaining the merits of the Swiss system, which would be fun.

The Northern Conference was played on Tuesday, results below:

Tom 2 vs Liz 3
Dave 0 vs Mike 5
Tom 1 vs Mike 4
Dave 1 vs Liz 4
Tom 4 vs Dave 1
Mike 3 vs Liz 2

TeamGamesWonLostWin %Runs ForRuns AgainstRuns Diff
Mike (Caribbean Basin)1511473.33%756015
Liz (San Fransisco)159660.00%695910
Tom (Boston)157846.67%76679
Dave (Canada)1521313.33%5286-34
Mike and Liz progress to the Winner's Conference, Tom and Dave to the Runner's Up Conference.

Can I suggest that the following format for the finals/runners up play-offs:


  • 3 game series against each opponent (with buy rounds)
  • Semi finals to be 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 (no buy rounds)
  • Winners of each game meet in a best of 5 final
  • Losers meet in a best of 5 3/4 playoff

Some additional rules:


  • All free agents of less than 5 in value to be removed from the remaining deck
  • 6 free agents available for each pairing each round
  • Up to 3 free agents can be replaced from the deck for a cost of 3

Finally, we need some dates for the next rounds to be played; please use the Doodle poll - https://doodle.com/poll/2pfvh4gkqusbp66a

Later today I will post the photos of all of the teams, so we can see how everyone is shaping up ahead of the finals.
