Yesterday's Results: Both games continued down their parallel paths, with some clutch RISP pitching. Tony showed up and cooly struck out Karina, while Ryan fouled out against Steve. So now some clutch 2-out at-bats are coming up in both games! Here are the updated game boards:
A few notes:
- Since the subject of missing turns came up, let me say that I'd like to replace players only as a last resort. So as long as you send us something, even just an email saying you can't send in a score, you won't be replaced (though you'll still forfeit that at-bat). I just need to know you're still out there. This is especially true with first-time commenters - not that I intend to give preference to anyone, but regular or even semi-regular commenters I feel more comfortable that even if they miss their turn, they were just temporarily incommunicado and haven't disappeared forever. When I replace a team member, the purpose is not to punish anyone, but rather to try to ensure that a team doesn't have a recurring hole in their lineup.
- Better yet, let us know ahead of time if you're certain there's a particular day you can't make it, as some of you already have. I will try my best to accommodate, but if I receive too many such requests I may not be able to handle them all. Thus, please only do so if you're certain.
- FYI we will probably take a pause over the holidays as many people including myself will be traveling.
- Keep in mind this is all experimental and new to me too; I'm just making it up as I go...
Today's Matchups and Game: Both pitchers from the previous at-bat stay on the mound, with Tony facing Bryan, and Steve facing Julie Hibbard. And this is the game for today. And one more new rule: Since there are no at-bats on weekends, for Friday games (like today) you have until midnight PT on Saturday night to submit your score.
So folks, again please submit a screenshot of your high score (only your first submission will count), include your screenname somewhere in your email, and don't reveal your score to anyone but SoSG. Good luck!
Update: There was a scoring glitch in the addition game, so I changed the post (and extended the deadline) to go back to the whack-a-mole game for today. I've sent the 4 competitors an email. Sorry for the inconvenience and if I've made any of you do math unnecessarily.
