First of all, the ambitious notion of creating "radio broadcasts" of the games is out the window. There are just too many things going in in life to try to pull that off here. That is a bummer, because I just know you would have loved my radio style and witty banter with..er, myself.
So, with that news, I have created a Post Season folder that I am sharing so that you can look over the game logs as we go along. I will post the links to the game log folder and then later in each post, I will provide the actual standings, scores, etc. That way, I can head off any spoilers (or try anyway).
We also have a few packs to bust open as we finish out the actual MLB season, so we'll get those going as well.
We also have our final draft results! Let's look at those first:
As always, everyone goes into the pot:
Then, the names are sorted in the spreadsheet. Only, I didn't take that screenshot. Instead, like a doofus, I took one of how things looked before I even ran the randomizer. Well, here ya go, for what it's worth - the list before random sorting:
What everyone really came for: the final results:
Just as an FYI, here are a couple stats:
- This draft had the most shut-outs we've had all season (4)
- We had 24 managers participate
- Junction Jack, Dmitri Young, and Aaron Harang each received 15 requests
- The Jennings were the only team to grab two players!
Those names were put into the OOTP game before the first game was played. All teams were then given AI lineups and roster changes. Sorry, Jafronius and Otakus, but the expanded roster kinda freaked the post season out, so I had no choice but to give every the "AI Equal Treatment."
The Managers/Players list is updated as well. See the "PAD Info" tab above for the link.
Okay, I know you are dying to see what happened in the first day of playoff action, right!? Before we get there, here is the link to the whole postseason game logs folder:
The files use the following format:
gamedate - visitor vs home (round, game)
Ex: 0927 - Tribecards at JoshDs (Round 1, Game 1)
SPOILER ALERT!! RESULTS FROM PLAYOFFS APPEAR AFTER THE IMAGE BELOW!!
Stop here if you want to go view the game logs for yourself before seeing the scores/standings.
You have been warned...
Okay, here we go!! Here are the results of the 09/27 games:
Dominic FDNYs vs Missouri Wilsons; Arkansas Tribecards vs California JoshDs; Texas PlayAtThePlates vs Alberta CaptainCanucks; and Illinois Superduperman99s vs Pennslyvania NachosGrandes:
Minnesota gcrls vs Florida Workmans; New York BoRosnys vs Ontario Kazis; Kentucky Quarrys vs New Jersey Hadsalls; and Wisconsin Thorzuls vs Virginia Dawgbones:
Congratulations all 1st game winners!! This is a "Best-of-Five" round, though, so plenty of time for those trailing to win.
I am a day behind, I know. So, I will let these stand. There is no game scheduled for the 29th in OOTP, so I will post the scores from the 28th's games on the 29th. Clear as mud? Well, just keep checking back.
Okay, we have some packs to bust! (Sorry, can't scan pics - ugh!)
