the above link is also in the handouts section on the main site.
Seeds 5-10 determined by overall record among “AA” teams. Seeds 11&12 determined by overall record among “A” teams. -except the Eagles are now ranked 12 and are eliminated from playoff contention.
Something tells me the Warriors may have forfeitted too many games also, so who knows with that.
Seeds 1-4 are the AA champ and runner up, then the A champ and runner up.
the Ducks are 10-5 vs. AA teams, losses to the Sox, Canes (2) and Bulldogs the Bulldogs (10-3) lost to the Canes today. the bulldogs play one more game against the maulers so they are done as far as AA games go i think. We have them 20-11 in the net.
would you rather play the A champ in round 2 and the AA runner-up as the six seed, or the A runner up in rd. 2 and then the AA champ in the semis as the five seed?
the Militia are 6-6 in AA play, over half their wins are against A teams. They are set in the seven spot according to the disclaimer at the bottom of the bracket i copied above.
8-11: Warriors, Matadors, Titans, Knights, and the Eagles are still ineligible.
The Eagles franchise is a disgrace to baseball at any level. They are compromising the whole playoff format and i feel bad for the few guys on that team who give a shit about baseball.
there could be an interesting match up in the 7-10 seed game if its Militia vs. Matadors, but then that might be militia vs. Titans since the eagles folded.
there could also be a Bulldogs Oilers matchup in the 6-4 second round game.
The Maulers overtook Big Oil for the AA regular season title.
what a mess.
anyway, it’d be great to beat the Hurricanes and the Sox on the way to the championship, which is what we will probably have to do.
The road to the semis is wide open and I like our pitching depth against anyone’s.
we can’t finish worse than the six seed.
The eagles are ineligible. Adam Smith appeared in 15 games for the Ducks last season pitching 47 innings (team high for innings pitched). for a team that went 16-8. this season the Eagles only played 15 games total thanks to forfeits and Smith missed at least four games, so that leaves 11 games or 77 innings (not counting ten-run rule games) which is 12 more than Adam played last season.
So, Adam left a top-three team to play approximately half an inning more per game over a stupid resentment against one of the most likable guys in the league, TC Jones. Great decision, enjoy not having to be embarrassed in the playoffs.
Really only five teams have a shot at it, so it’s kind of like the majors in that respect. It’s nice to be one of those five teams.
