Discussion: Team move-ups

Paul
My point was how you score your runs is irrelevant to the conversation. When you move from AAA to major you can still only score 5 runs an inning- no matter how you score them. If you hit 5 solos in an inning or 8 singles to score 5 runs it's still 5 runs.. The more homers allowed in major just gives you more ways to score runs.
You could have a AAA team hit their maximum homers every game and not win a single game and I doubt they would be moved up.

It appears move up is based on run production and wins. Again how you produce those runs and wins is irrelevant.

Discussion: Team move-ups

Just curious why teams always mention how they score runs (without homers) as a defense against move up?

Discussion: 1 and 1 pitch count

I like the 0-0. I would rather have 4 quality at bats than 5 rushed at bats. I don't know what the big deal about 7 innings is either. Games usually last an hour and a half- thats long enough-I'm old. By the time you factor in BP two games you're playing about 4-5 hours a day or longer. hats plenty.

Discussion: WHO ARE CURRENTLY THE MOST POWERFUL HITTERS IN SENIOR SOFTBALL

Wasn't there a Seinfeld episode where a guy spoke about himself in the third person- "Jimmy likes this and Jimmy does that" and it was actually Jimmy speaking. I'm pretty sure that the point of the episode was to make fun of someone who spoke of themselves in the third person. Thanks for entertaining us... Donl likes that.

Discussion: Handicap System

James you make some excellent points that are not often discussed. Not only are you giving the lower team a perfect offensive inning without using any home runs but it is actually an EXTRA perfect offensive inning. Since the lower team can score 6 runs an inning and the upper team only 5.

I would suggest the runs come to the lower team any time they don't score their 5, but they can only score 5 an inning. So say in the first inning the lower team only scores 1 they are immediately gifted 4 of their 5 extra runs. Then in the second if they score 3 runs they are gifted their 1 remaining extra run.

Discussion: stop all the whining

Tim,
You’re being silly again. Why would you average runs per out when the rules say you can only score 5 runs per INNING. Those are the rules. And as Jaywood points out the 5 runs an inning always keeps it close. The rules in Senior Softball are designed to keep games close, much like t-ball. For example after 4 innings of play the score is 20 to 20. One team has made 0 outs and the other team has made 8 outs. The game can’t be any closer and the outs don’t matter. Are you suggesting that if the next inning is the open inning and the team with 8 outs wins it 27-26 that they somehow loose because they made more outs? Where do you come up with this… “logic”? Just silly.

Also, can you identify for everyone the “dynasty” team that is “ruining” 50 major plus?

Discussion: Cal Cup & Western Nationals

Tim,
I am constantly amazed by your complete lack of logic and consistency without any shame or embarrassment. Maybe you just don’t pay attention to yourself. You have two posts in this thread 1) where you say you would go to Cal Cup IF Northwest Legends were to show up 2) A second post where you suggest you cant support any tournament organization that allows defending champs to stay intact and participate (that would be…. the Northwest Legends) Do you want them to show or not? Are they keeping you from participating if they show up… or if they don’t show up!!!!
Unbelievable!!!! You are a one man Saturday Night Live skit! Thanks for the entertainment!

Discussion: Thoughts for the upcoming SSUSA Rules Committee meeting!

Tim breaks them all up so he doesn't have to play them. That's his real agenda. He's finished in the top 10% of all 50 teams this year but doesn't want to play in with the rest of the top 10% of those teams. He wants to get rid of any team he thinks is better than his.

Discussion: Which choice would Plus Champions take if Bumped like every other Division?

Tim,
There were 99 teams combined in the 50 worlds this year. There were 7 in Plus. So your finish at 3rd in the major division, would place you 10th overall among the 99 teams. Where do you think you belong? Where would you draw the line to divide the divisions? If there were 3 divisions would you take the top 30? The top 25? How would you divide them? I would like to hear how you think those 99 teams should be divided into divisions?

Discussion: Which choice would Plus Champions take if Bumped like every other Division?

Tim does not care about the health of the plus program. He is only trying to weaken it because he is afraid he will have to play in it. And more importantly he is worried that if he is reclassified to Plus, he will have to GIVE runs rather than receive in all the local tournaments and play the Longhorns and East Bay straight up. It will be hard for him to continue his local tournament Dynasty Team. Which incidentally should be broken up anyway according to his logic.

Discussion: Would Plus ball participation improve if ......

It's obvious why he is obsessed. And why he gives faulty logic arguments to justify his behavior. He is playing on a Plus team in the major division. So he gives all kinds of reasons why he is not playing where he belongs...its called rationalization. Rumor has it he cost his team the World with an error just to avoid playing with the Big Boys. Weather or not he did it on purpose or the incredible weight of having to play where he wouldn't be the Top Dog made him tremble and freeze up is subject to speculation.

Discussion: Thoughts for the upcoming SSUSA Rules Committee meeting!

Tim suggests breaking Plus teams up when he asks why stop at Major when when moving teams up after winning a division. We've been down this road before with you young man. And you either aren't willing or don't seem able to grasp the concept of what is happening out there in the real world. Lower division teams are not being asked to "break up", they are being asked to "move up". There is nowhere to move up above Plus. I could go into your other faulty logic arguments here, but that may be too much info for you at one time. So for the time being lets see if you can grasp the concept above.

Discussion: rumor has it

Tim,
Also in addition to Sommerville losing, Turn2 the other dynasty team lost as well. Can we expect to see an influx of teams into the 60 Plus category? Again, if your argument was valid at all that should happen. Whats great about this is we dont have to speculate anymore, we can actually see if your argument has any validity. Any bets? I didn't think so.

Discussion: rumor has it

Tim,
Now that the dynasty team (Sommerville) has lost and you have proclaimed your love of playing the game for its pure enjoyment, I imagine you will have no problem moving up to Major Plus. Especially because winning doesn't matter to you. Also, if your theory about Dynasty teams holds true, in addition to your team being enticed, there should be a bunch of teams clamoring to move up. Again, that is if your argument had any validity.

Jawood,
Just curious... Why is going 7 innings so important? Seems like you are reducing defense by artificially reducing the number of outs you have to record by making it 5 runs an inning.

Discussion: future of senior softball

Mango,
Debating Tim will be a waste of your time. You will try to use logic with him. Tim has demonstrated that logic is a stranger to him. He still hasn't grasped how he contradicts himself with his “dynasty” argument. He states that dynasty teams are the reason teams don’t want to play plus. But when asked if he would play if the dynasty team was removed would he still play – his answer …no. And he doesn't get that defeats his argument.
