    Welcome one and all! This is The Dugout!
    The only place to come and chat about Major League Lightball in all its fantastic glory! For both players of the game to discuss ongoing game events as well as for those simply curious and wanting to ask questions, either is fine.

    [IMG]
    Who's blazing hot right now in the Major Leagues? Who's frozen in a slump? And whose players are part of the Home Run Race this year? All this and more are central topics we can tackle.

    Without further ado:

    PLAY BALL!

    Sounds good @Vehn. :D

    Everyone's posts have been good so far. @Jedi Gunny, yours was inspired for sure! @Bardan_Jusik: Your guys are hilarious as always. :p

    Also, everyone: Don't forget to PM where you want your Bonus Runs for the week unless you want me to decide for you!

    Added in all the NPC teams now in the Resource Thread. Though will be finalizing everything later (darn RL getting in the way!). The 287 Season Schedule will be up tonight too at long last.

    Sweet! Looking forward to this game! As much as I adore Limmie, this will be a nice change-of-pace and a challenge in its own right.

    RL is crazy! and it only gets crazier between now and the end of the school year. I did write a post today, just need to type it.

    End of School Year period is my bane. I hate it, yes I do. [face_frustrated]

    Edit: I also hate this computer of mine at work. Type up something for the Resource Thread and once copied and pasted from the word document, nooo...completely changes the formatting and won't respond to edits I try to do. Ugh.

    Will fix it when I get home evidently.

    I've begun using Google Docs for my limmie writing. I also copy and paste in the BB Code Editor (hat tip to @jcgoble3 for turning me onto that trick) and that's helped immensely. Once I have everything with the proper spacing then I add in colors and the like (since those are hard to do without the assistance of the rich text editor). It eliminates any carryover code from the program I composed the text in.

    Also, I just wanted to let all of you know that I am 100% committed to this game


    ...'s OOC thread where I will mercilessly mock the NPC performance of the Bakura Nobles. See, it's all a plot by the Noble House of Trieste to keep the Miners the only game in town. Sometimes they are truly evil. [face_devil]

    Also, it'll give them the greatest verisimilitude to the local team for them to be completely awful and hopeless. [face_laugh]

    That explains my wonky formatting when I paste from WriteRoom on my laptop. Always makes me frustrated. @Darth_Elu, was there a schedule released for the upcoming week? I don't know which team I'm playing....unless I missed it.

    Well, normally I don't write things from my work computer. That's done only on occasion, I have no problems when I'm home typically. However, if problems multiply in frequency, I'll definitely remember that @Trieste. ;)

    And you're so mean to the poor Nobles, at least they have a fairly good Galaxy Series record so far. *eyes the Miners* :p

    And not yet @Vehn. However, I plan to be working on that tonight so it should be up soon! :D

    Finally. :p

    Edit: Oh! And @Runjedirun, the Lineup is not just whom the starters are, but in what order they bat in. The Pitchers almost always bat ninth, just fyi. ;) :)

    Trust me in Baseball/Lightball Strategy, its a crucial detail. Want me to assume thats the lineup anyway?

    I didn't realize I was giving you the players in batting order. I will hopefully remember to pm you the order later. I have about 500 things to do today, don't want to load my pc right now. It's early I want the Fam to sleep while I sneak over to the park to shoot some hoops.

    Sounds good, do what you got to do. RL and those Hoops take precedence. ;)

    And finally got the schedule out after finagling some kinks. *shakes cane at it* [face_relieved]

    Never mind. Thought I put them in the same division, but I didn't. This tired mind needs sleep. Like nao! :p

    But to answer your question….

    Nope. Still heartless. [face_skull] :p

    In that regard, they most definitely do not resemble the hometown team. [face_laugh] They haven't even been to four Series, let alone won four. :p The 280s seem to be a pretty good decade for Bakuran sports across the board though...

    Sure seems like it! The 280s seem to be well for Bakura indeed, but can they keep it up till the end? ;)

    Of course Mandalore has quite the exclamation mark in Limmie right now, which won't ever go away. :p

    And thanks for getting that post up, @Trieste! :D As you can see in the MLL, I have decided on a tradition. For the Ceremonial First Pitch of every season, I will combo with someone in a nice homage to various RPF personages. Sometimes they may be with players of the game and sometimes not in a guest post, such as this time. Felt it was only right for Trieste to have the first honors. ;)

    The season hasn't even fully started yet, and there is already loads of drama. I love it!

    Drama? You're telling me. If I just read what I think I just read in @Vehn 's post...this is gonna be a season.

    Its begun! And what an opening, some great games and bonus runs already proving pivotal in a few of them! :eek:

    ….And some of those scores! Le cringe for those on the wrong end, and Le applause for those on the right end. :p

    *eyes @Bardan_Jusik * A worthy opponent. [face_cowboy]

    Some great light ball out there! Druckenwell came out strong for a smaller program. Nice!

    We shall need our resident Sabermetrics expert @jcgoble3 to make sense of it all.

    I really love the stats. Makes me excited like reading the box scores in the daily paper.
