Good evening! Welcome to this week's PAD Circus update! Unfortunately, I can't upload the files yet, but I can give screen shots of the current standings in the Pack-A-Daily Circus League.
Before we get to that, though, today, in the OOTP simulation (Sept 1), rosters will expand to 70 active players per team! This will be interesting to watch how things move over the next month or so.
As we look at the Blogger League first, the JoshDs have taken first place back from the Tribecards in the Picadilly Division. The Wilsons have all but sealed their place for post-season play in the Green Park Division, as have the NachosGrandes and the CaptainCanucks:
Meanwhile, in the WordPress League, everyone in first place looks to be set for a playoff run. The only exception might be the Workmans. They are 4 games ahead of the BoRosnys, so the expanded roster could help swap those two teams.
Of course, with the rosters expanding from 50 to 70 active players, there is no telling what the next simulation is going to look like. Add to that all the A&G add-ins, etc, and we've got the makings for one of the weirdest baseball season finishes in history! Okay, maybe not all of history, but how many airplanes do you know that are playing on a baseball team?
Let's shift our focus to tonight's wax! How about a donated super-sized pack of 2012 Topps Series Two:
