Discussion: Determining Seeding

Then why even list it? more importantly moving forward is the flip flop of the run differential with the fewest runs to protect those teams that play high scoring games and maybe even a full 7 innings and those teams that go extra innings which are treated like open innings....thoughts?

Discussion: Determining Seeding

OK, now that the tourney in Vegas is over I would really like to get a straight answer as to HOW the seeding process goes.....I just brought up the brackets and it clearly says the first determination is head to head, then runs allowed, then run differential, and then a coin toss....so in the 60 Major bracket there were 9 teams with a 1 and 1 record....as I read the determination of seeding again, why weren't the teams that played each other seperated first.....as an example, I play for the Enviro-Vac Maurders, we tied with Pope at 1 and 1, we beat Pope, but because the tournament director determined that they gave up less runs they were seeded in front of us....there were 2 other teams, like us that also got a lower seed than a team they beat...and 2 teams went extra innings (which means the teams play 2 open innings) and they are automatically disqualified by fewest runs given up because of the added inning(s)....using your rules to determine seeding all teams that are tied with the same record should be seperated, using my examplke all winning tied teams go ahead if the losing teams and then go to the second tiebreaker....in this case fewest runs given up....but I believe a fairer detemination should put the run differential second and then fewest runs given up...that way the teams that did go extra innings are not penalized and the teams that beat another team tied with them at least get and deserve to be seeded in front of the teams they beat....I do not want this to sound like sour grapes, I want to find a way that is fair for all, including those that go extra innings or have a tougher prelim game...thoughts?

Discussion: Re-rating teams

As smooth01 just posted, this re-rating was done on August 27th, not January, not June.....and as Nutt15 posted about Fangrabbers, which was also done outside the guidelines established by SSUSA.....both of these teams should be forced to play by the same rules the rest of us do....it is not a fair process to those teams that have played within the rules, taking our lumps for a season or two, but going thru the correct process.....if Fangrabbers and Calf Energy or any team for that matter do not want to play in the level they are slotted, then DON'T play...teams that are and have been playing at a level should not have to deal with a team dropped down after the appeal dates have passed....going to look real good if Fangrabbers and Calf Energy finish 1st & 2nd in 55 Major huh?

Discussion: Re-rating teams

Why is it that this late in the season SSUSA feels that they should re-classify teams? the case in point is the California Energy 55 team.....they have played all year as a Major Plus team, and although I can sympathize with them not being as competitve as they would have liked, how is it fair that they now get dropeed down to 55 Major? there are rules in place for re-classification and doing it this late in the year is not part of that....besides that, there are no tournaments to observe California Energy against 55 Major teams to even see if the downgrade was necessary or fair....my team was FORCED to play 55 Major Plus for 2 years, not making it to Sunday play before we were allowed to drop down, but only during the re-classification period...in fact we had to play another 55 Major Plus tourney after we added two new players for fear that we were then too powerful for Major...after seeing the players we added were not impact players we were dropped down......what has California Energy done to be allowed to now drop down and in theory become a favorite to win the World Chamionships? they should have to go thru the same re-classification process as the rest of us had to do, not get special treatment...how is this fair to the rest of us 55 Major teams?
