Discussion: Team move-ups

LeeLee,that is the problem i am having because paul says it true..this is simply not true.how do you prove a lie.my team has never cheated and has always had legal rosters.my beef is with ssusa over the customer service policies not with paul's team.he has a problem being moved up and wants to deflect things on my team because they lost.he said we had 5 new guys on saturday ,this is simply not true.the fact is i am okay with being moved up,he isn't.he played major for 2 years after winning tripled crown.my team has played almost ten yrs of major in one org or another,took our beating in major plus and never won the triple crown. he has played 2yrs in major goes back down aaa and keeps winning.he says that my team is full of major players not even ssusa agrees with him.i haven't heard one player or one team other than paul say something.so leelee you are basing your opinion of my team on what paul says and you just told him yourself your opinion based on what he says about his own team.no wherein my argument with paul have you heard me bash his team because we just want to show up and compete winning is a bonus.LeeLee i hope no one ever accuses you of something that isn't true because it is hard to prove something that never happened.stay safe and keep hitting.

paul my team has been together with the same players and system since 2005 when we went to vegas and were 0-5 the following year we won it .got moved up in 2007 and got beat 0-5 in kc came back in 2008 and won it.since 2008 we have set up a farm system so that we always have the same group of players.we have 11 players on our roster from the 2005 team right now with 4 players deceased.that is why i am sensitive to some of your comments.i am willing to talk to you in person but will not bore the rest of the people with my redundancy.once again no hard feelings and good luck to you and your team.

paul not once have i ever questioned your roster.i said i don't know your player situation that all my players came from the same city.if 65 major players are playing in 60's they can play aaa that is the rule.you are correct that 3 players me included played with roncones 55 major team.they are our 55 extended club left over from when we became 60s.they are by no means a major team but cant get reclassified because they don't play the required 3 tournaments.they have played syracuse and issa in drifton where they got beat by 2 aa teams.we 3 were among their better players.i played one prelim only.this was one of our team's problem.roncones were going to be short players so they asked us to play.i told them that they had to call george to clear it because that would make us 3 major players as you said.it was explained to george that they would not be able to play in cuse without our help.george said that it was okay but if one of the three played with roncones again our 60 team would be major.we were told we would still be tr1ple a players.as we found out later this was not the case the 3 of us were rerated major.that is what i had to straighten out since august.i finally got it straightened out on oct 15 and was going to add 3 players who would be 60 next year from gubiottis and roncones roster thus keeping us legal but i never got the chance george said that we were rerated as of oct 8th.remember paul i could skip ft.meyers and go to toc as a triple a team but we will keep with our commitments.we tried to get our roster fixed after syracuse we called ssusa and they said that they couldn't help us until we registered our ft.meyers roster on line but we had to pay first before we could register so we paid.once we paid we couldn't register because ft.meyers was a 2015 tournie and that we couldn't register until after vegas cause the computer wouldn't let us.paul we have been pace for years and have had great success in major softball so major isn't the issue ,when i add all (not only 3) the 55 players that will be 60 in 2015 we would have had to been major anyway.now you see my problem and i hope u understand them.we did nothing wrong and you being on the ball as coach saw things that you think are shady but in truth were not.ssusa wanted the money so they let us play with roncones but they also knew roncones is not major.when i moved up to 60 i took alot of guys that played most of the time with me and gubiottis took 5.that is the truth.we were major the first year in 60s and got destroyed. last year was the only time we asked to be rerated. the straw that broke the camels back was getting killed by syracuse on the same field we played you in cuse.again paul i have never questioned your team or your roster my opinion of your team is you play hard and are very good even when you are yelling at me from the dugout

ssusa staff just a correction on my part the 29-13 game was not a prelim game but the first game that counted.again my point is that you corrected me rightly so why couldn't the move up be communicated to us on october 8th .i had three communications with your office to clarify roster after oct 14. and was told that my concerns were taken care of and then days later was emailed that we were moved up on oct, 8th.we now spent money at the wrong venue and no one at your end cares.i had been trying to resolve my issues since july thought i had them resoved but again i was wrong.

paul we had 20 guys on our roster for syracuse all 20 guys played.since we have a large roster we don't need players missing work to play in syracuse which is an hour away.but get your facts straight our catcher wasn't there friday and our 65 year old outfielder wasn't either both because of work.it was our outfieldrs first tournament in 2 yrs because of heart issues .it was his last game of the yr. because of more heart troubles.that is two players not five.two players that have been on our roster at onetime or another for ten years.that is one reason why prelim games should never be used as run differentials.that is why teams closes to the venue has an advantage.using players on you roster is what you are suppose to do.every player on my team has always been from rochester and for years we had a sponsor and could have picked up other players but didn't.i don't know your team situation as far as where you get your players nor do i care.i don't know where you get this 5 players thing nor care but you should get your facts straight .we played you fair and square and respect your effort and your spirit.you had a great year and you went through the major classification before and i feel your pain.my team has been major and up to major plus in one association or other since 2006 this tournament was our first in ssusa aaa.you won the triple crown three years ago and i congratulate you but i would not insinuate that someone was sandbagging or cheating i would man up and say it.i would not nor ever have made an excuse when i have been beat because i know somedays you eat bear and somedays the bear eats you.i am not concerned about playing major i am just concerned how my team is being treated.we have beaten the best and got beat by the best.if on oct 8th ssusa would have notified us that we were moved up i would have been fine with it but that did not happen.we are taking 13 players to ft meyers 5 of them started in syracuse.i will be playing all 14 every game,if i was afraid i would cut our loses and not go but that is not the case.we had played you in loundon when you were major and it didn't turnout too well for you and i had a way better team then but you didn't whine then why now?in dalton georgia we won back to back in the final game i started 17 players and the other 2 played half the game so when you hint that something is askew or shady you are doing yourself a disservice.good luck to you and your team i wish you nothing but the best.i have said what i needed to say and harbor no bad feelings.stay safe

preliminary games should never count in your run differential,sometimes you don't even play a team from your own classification.moveup and movedowns should always be done with first hand knowledge and not from across the map.ssusa may say that they look at things from all aspects but we all know that that isn't true.why isn't there a east coast ,southern, ,midwest dictator?we all know numerous teams that have escaped the wrath of obvious move ups.i remember coming in 6th in toc and the other team from rochester finished 4th,both teams without winning a world were moved up and the top three finishers who won numerous tournaments stayed aaa.in 2006 my team won the lvssa championship and when i landed back in rochester i called ssusa and spa and moved my team up.our team is age driven, in 2 years our team will get back to the major level on the field when our 55 players moveup.this upcoming year the players we get from the 55s will be subs for us just like they were for 55s.the computer says we will be better,the dictator will agree with the computer but this isn't true.snideness such as the words based on performance underlined,obviously,explaining seldom,never,ever there will always be an exception and the scoring data set would trigger......etc.this is what gets me upset ,not the moveup.ssusa thinks that because they say it it is true and they can tell us anything and we have to believe it.i will be giving up our toc berth rather than spend another dime in ssusa. when i decide to put those 55 subs on my roster our team would have automatically been moved up to major in 2015 which i would have done because those are the rules and not an opinion.when you see mike boone an ssusa director ask him if our team is a team of integrity and unafraid of competing.when you see cal another ssusa director ask him how we carry ourselves and how respectful we are to him and ssusa.it is suppose to be a two way street!!!!

last three tournaments in ssusa that rochester merchants played in were ft.meyers majors record 0-5 syracuse major 1-4 losing to 2 aa teams beating a aa and getting killed 55-20 in 2 games to a major team.we then won syracuse aaa this year beating hanningtons in finals by one run in finals going 2-1 against them.we won by an average run differential of 5.8 our biggest win was 29-13 in first prelim where we scored 12 in the seventh.we have had the same players for the ten years we have had the team,we have never picked up a player from outside the area.we have had 4 players die and also our sponsor,we have played aaa-all the way to super major and never complained or ducked anyone.winning this last tournament made us major as of october 8th.even though i know we are not a major team i accept the decision but what i don't accept is the disrespect that ssusa has shown our team.we have been trying to make plans for ft.meyer since july.we tried to get our roster set so that we would know if we were playing in naples or cape corral these places are based on which class you are in.we needed to get our hotels and cars and air taking care of.we were told that our rosters couldn't be set until after vegas was over.this didn't leave us much time.on or about oct 15 ssusa said our roster was ok but three days later we got an email that we were moved up oct 8th.now we are playing in naples with our hotels miles away.why not tell us october 8th that we were moved up.we are now committed to naples but it will be our last ssusa tournament.not sweating getting moved up just don't like how we were treated.i promise you that we were the first team to pay and were trying to get our roster set in august and were snowballed.we are going to this tournament with 13 players down from 20 that were in syracuse.so when people in california tells you they know our team and who is good or bad and has never seen you play and still say that they researched your team and talked to people in the know about your team i say that is a crock.numbers don't lie but they don't tell the truth.should have told us on october 8 th we were moved up plain and simple.not even a phone call.why call they got our money but never again unless they verbally communicate with me in ft.meyers and take responsibility for our inconvenience

i love going to vegas but the logistics are brutal.i would like to see one prelim game that is basically practice with a blind draw double elimination tournament.cut the entry fee way down.if you go 2 and out there is plenty to do in vegas.i hate the 3 game guarantee setup,once a tournament starts you should never play a game that doesn't count.i would like to see the percentage of winners who have won the tournament with over 18 teams in their bracket after losing their first game while playing in extreme hit in vegas .

bud leftfield as a fellow union member you should be embarrassed at how the union threw jose under the bus,they let him take the fall so their brothers could keep making millions.they knew who were taking steroids and let only jose take the fall.as for steroids in softball all we have to do is take a look around many are using them.senior bats are legal steroids.at least jose didn't lie about his use and maintains that steroids taken properly are healthy.why not be healthy.i never meant jose but when i see him he looks healthy.glad to see him promoting senior softball.i have played against many great sluggers whether they were on steroids or not i enjoy playing against them and love watching the bombs being hit.its your choice what you want to do with your body i prefer 12oz curls and deadlifts.

b.j and garocket i also went to usssa book and garocket is right.that umpire was truly on the ball.budleftfield i believe that this wasnt the intent of the rule but i spent alot of time checking for an exception and could not find one.the rule is cut and dry

b.j. i am saying that in garockets situation that 2 runs scored before the guy was tagged out running for home thus that makes two outs so the only runner after that was the batter who missed first he became the third out.there were no preceding runners in front of him.i believe the rule states if the appeal out is the third out for missing firstbase preceding runners shall not score.preceding runners between the second and third out is where i am making my stand.i say the ump was wrong.

if there was a runner on first and third and one out and fly ball to left field the runner on third tagged up and runner on first leaves too soon the ball is thrown to first without time being called for the third out the run still counts if he scored before the ball was thrown to first.i still say that in your situation the two runs should have counted.i say the umpire was wrong.if there were two outs when the batter was up then the two runs wouldn't have counted

two runs should have counted.the out between third and home was the third out since the force at first base would have been second out a.you can't take those runs off the board when they already scored.
