Official GWJ MLB2K5 League Interest/Signup Thread

I am addressing the passed ball issue by lowering the catching error slider to 5. I hope that is enough, cause catchers in this game seem to have a real problem ... um catching.

Romulox, V-O and da1andonlywhitey .... what are your gamertags?

So we have 15, if we do the two league idea, we need one more player to make up 8 teams in each league.

If we do not have one more sign up, we will resort to the one league and the last to sign up will have to miss out (so start recruiting Warlock).

Sorry I was not being clear High;ander, I was not complaining about the passed ball but the lack of offense by Certis and I (Mets v Phillies)

ahhh. You guys were hitting the correct buttons, right?

My gamertag is Junior72. I''m assuming there is a thread somewhere around here with everyone elses gamertags?

If we do not have one more sign up, we will resort to the one league and the last to sign up will have to miss out (so start recruiting Warlock).

Seriously? That would be really sad if I lost out because I was on vacation until today. As soon as I saw the thread, I posted.

Someone else needs to sign up...

Certis! Lock this thread, now!

The ones i like are

1- Florida
2-Balitmore
3-philly

And with ruthlessmuffin, registration is now closed.

So when are we kicking this off?

Soon. Possibly in the next few days.

So far, it looks as though we will have two leagues consisting of 8 teams. They will be an American League and a National League, with American league teams and National League teams. Each will have a playoff system. and the winner of those playoffs will have a 7 game World Series.

I hope this is OK with everyone, I know it''s not what you originally signed up for, but it seems to me that doing it this way would be more fun instead of having a big 16 team league. And everyone in the league will play each other twice.

I think that sounds like fun, HL. I need to stock up on emory boards.

The draft was held in the early morning hours (around 11 a.m.) today and the results are as follows. Teams are divided into two leagues: American and National. I will serve as Commissioner of the National League and SwampYankee will serve as co-commissioner of the American League.

Each league will play a 16 game season. I am debating about how many teams of each league make the playoffs, either two or four. Two would be good, but four would keep it a little more fun for everyone with more teams having a chance to get in, so please share your thoughts.

The winner of the playoff will face off in a 7 game world series, not played over the 2K Games league system, with the winner of the games reporting the score, box score and all the other goodies.

Here is a breakdown of the draft and the proposed league.

NATIONAL LEAGUE
Commissioner: Highlander/Nationals
Frankiemumbles/Mets
PoppinFresh/Pirates
Sanjuro/Padres
Certis/Phillies
da1nonlywhitey/Marlins
V-O/Brewers
Pigpen/Braves


[u]AMERICAN LEAGUE
[/u]
Co-Commissioner: SwampYankee/Indians
Warlock/Tigers
KingCohiba/Angels
Mr. Green/Blue Jays
Romulox/Twins
Ruthless Muffin/Orioles
PsychoKillerZ/Athletics
SquirrelMonkey/White Sox

Much like the football league, deadlines for you to play your games will be firm. So it would be best if you always make an effort to post in the week''s thread to setup your games so the commissioners will see who is trying and who is not. There will be some flexibility, of course, and teams that have truly been trying to play will get an extension. But the schedule will be maintained.

So we have a few issues to vote on. Please give a yes or no to each of the propositions put forth:

1. Up the contact level to 90.
2. Two playoff teams per league.
3. Four playoff teams per league.

1. Up the contact level to 90.No.
2. Two playoff teams per league.Yes.
3. Four playoff teams per league.No.

Oops... yeah sorry, I forgot to post my gamertag... it''s Romulox82

Oh and...
1. No.
2. Yes.
3. No.

Tigers? Who said I wanted to be the Tigers?! Who would ever play such a HORRIBLE team!?

<reads>

Oh. Right.

And.

1. No.
2. No.
3. Yes. Anything that''s going to heighten the experience of the league, I say go for it. If we get halfway through, and based on my record, I know I''ll neverget to be one of the 2 teams from my league to get into the playoffs, I''ll get less into it. But, if half the teams in each league get at least a chanceof continuing to the series, I think that''s cool.

Oh and I forgot, one more thing, for American Leaguers only,

4. Do you want DH?

4. Do you want DH?

Yes. What the hell else am I supposed to do with Dmitri Young?

1. No
2. Yes
3. No

1.Yes (I''d hate to see people get frustrated)
2.No
3.Yes (I agree with Warlock-- it''ll keep people interested longer)

Hmm... Based on other''s answers, maybe I''m just being contrary.

1. Yes ( Would rather see 10-9 games than 1-0)
2. NO
3. Yes (Keeps things more interesting for more people)
4. DH is a MUST for the AL...

1. Up the contact level to 90. YES.
2. Two playoff teams per league. NO.
3. Four playoff teams per league. YES.
4. DH in AL: YES.

An aside: Dang, 3rd pick? Who''d you get to roll my die, Rodney Dangerfield''s Ghost?

I guess my quote is even more appropriate now, eh?

Let''s light this bitch!

Yeah I felt bad for you swampy. But not as bad as for Squirrelmonkey. He got none of the teams he wanted, but graciously took the WhiteSox (which I think was the steal of the league)

As AL commissioner, I would like to take a moment to address the AL Teams:

1) Submissions to the League web page will be VERY welcome.

2) I would like to set a standard for corruption in the AL that would make Mayor Daley weep with envy. My favorite beer is Molson Gold, my Ale Bass. I like all sorts of music, so and mp3s that find their way into my mailbox can only help you. My favorite pron is ...well, all of it!

Remember people, I''ll be the final arbiter of all editedresets and whatnot.

What''s good for the syndic...err....I mean LEAGUE is good for everyone!

Oh, and a word to the National League teams: Watch Sanjuro. He takes things.

No worries, Highlander, win or lose this is going to be a lot of fun!

Sounds vaguely dirty. Are you gonna make them all turn their head and cough or something? Sure am glad I''m in the NL.
