I'm putting this here for posterity's sake:


I wish there was a way I could determine if there has ever been another team in this league that has gone hitless in a full day with 37+ at b...

2013 Tigers

I have completed my goal of acquiring the entire 2013 Tigers starting rotation!

Team pages are finally here!

Posted by: Kevin - 04/05/2015 22:31:45 - in Kings
Well, it only took me four years, but the team pages I said I would be creating are now live. So these individual team forums now actually have a purpose. This was one of several web site enhancements that I released tonight, just in time for the 2015 season. I will outline all of those...

Minor League Champions?

Posted by: Kevin - 04/20/2011 21:12:55 - in Kings
With Clay Buchholz's win this afternoon, pitchers in my minors have accumulated more wins than my Major League roster (7 to 6) in fewer than half as many innings pitched. Much lower ERA and WHIP too. Obviously, I'm trying to win the Minor League title.

Good thing I left Edwin Jackson in my minors this week.

Posted by: Kevin - 04/07/2011 16:50:39 - in Kings
His line of 8 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 13 K (W) really wouldn't have fit in with the high ERA/WHIP, low wins strategy I've been using so far.

Re: Good thing I left Edwin Jackson in my minors this week.
Reply by: Charlie - 04/13/2011 02:04:05
That was my exact strategy with having Beckett (8 IP, 2H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 10 K, Win) in my minors against the Yanks. I never could have seen that coming, though.

New forums

You may have noticed these new forums that just showed up under the sub-forum of "DTBL Chatter". The purpose of these new forums will be more apparent once I start to get the new web site up and running, but here is a brief summary. Each team has it's own "chatter" fo...

Looking good so far, Kevin. Just uploaded an avatar for myself, I'll post a few times to see how my own little piece of the world works.

Thanks Greg. I like the avatar!

Kev, isn't time to change your avatar? I would never criticize you for showing your Sox spirit, but I don't see the relation to the Kings. At first I thought you were suggesting that the Sox were the Kings of the MLB, but then I saw your predictions and you don't even predict the Sox to ...

As I mentioned in my first post, yes, I plan on changing my avatar. Thank you for the suggestion. Maybe I will go with that one, at least until I can come up with my own. I may need to institute a "No Huffington Post Links" rule for this forum though.
