Brett, Seems odd to me that all those teams asked for and recieved ratings reductions ( Major Plus > Major after winning world tourns) Whats up with that?

Players come and go and rosters change for various reasons....injuries, moving up in age, etc. Yes, three of the teams played at the major plus level for 2 years and their appeals to move back down were granted accordingly at different times.

i believe the competition will be very good this year. It was one of the best tournament experiences I've ever had playing last year and this year looks even better. I am counting the days until we get to play and thanks for putting my team on your top ten list.

Wagon...What up Sir? I saw all the boys at the beach, I guess you did not make it. You guys and High Street Bucs have a heck of a squad. Hopefully we run into each other at some point. I am not playing as much...Good luck...do not hit too many solos. LOL

That is a great tournament! About a half a dozen of the teams could very easily be in the Major-plus to give that division a decent field, number wise.

Jawood,
So you're saying that the top 10 teams in the Major division should be moved up to Major +? To me that would be the only way to have a competitive Major + division throughout the season. I think the reason why most Major teams don't want to play Major + is because of the low #'s of team in these big tournaments? Just isnít that much fun playing the same teams over & over!! Iím in favor of Pricerís 2 division only format!
Majors & AAA 12 homers per team in Majors & NO HRS in AAA all others that canít compete can play league ball! but that's just Me!

I think we should merge Major and Major Plus in 50 and 55 because lots of teams
can hit Hr's at will, but the Major teams I have talked to dont want to play Major because of lack of teams, not because of tougher competition. I f we had done that this year we would have a 39 team bracket in 50's and the top preforming teams would recieve a bye in the first round of bracket play, that gives incentive to teams during RR games. No first round bye this year, just warm-up games, don't get hurt and, be ready for Bracket play. JMO

Yes, the biggest reason IS the lack of teams! The only time they can even hold a decent tournament is the Worlds and Reno, and even then we only have very few ... 7 in Phoenix and 4 in Reno. It is a joke that the brass thinks that this is enough to warrant a separate division and they have made it even more unattractive next year by upping the HR and run rules. I don't know what they are thinking! Do you see what people are saying, SSUSA? We want more teams to play, not more HR's and runs!
