    Man this off-season is boring... How long until some hotshot starts telling everyone how his team is #1

    Danforth needs to get his appeals through before he can start saying that. Super D team ASSEMBLE!

    Maybe it will lead to more big talking during the regular season? It can't be that people are getting smarter.

    This was on the site.. is this "new" rule because of you??

    Social Media/Communication Issues (NEW)
    If you take issue with the process via email, text, messenger, message board, Facebook, Twitter or any other social media outlet, and in the opinion of the committee it is detrimental to the game, your appeal will be absolutely denied.

    I think a few of the stoops are going to try and put their appeals in so we can play C this year.

    1) Probably partly my fault. You're welcome, Minnesota Appealers.

    2) You Stoops are the best MN USSSA B team. Bombs away!!!!!

    3) He's appealed a few times and been denied but I think B+ is fair. Now we only have 1 A card versus 2. Damn Gingy!

    I would think Myers would get dropped before him. Guy can't hit the ball out of the infield anymore ;)

    Just giving you a hard time bub I think you make valid points and show there is some variation in the appeal process

    So are some of you usssa teams playing asa this year?

    I don’t really know any of Danforths guys? Are they even any good? Sounds like archetype could be very solid if they play asa, maybe clobes?

    C teams I have no idea, maybe Hassan? Keyguys and silverbacks should be ok.

    ASA D seems to always start with three or four teams that everyone has heard of, and they do solid, but then there are another five or six that kind of come out of nowhere (or have been around but nobody talks about them).

    Hassan, Mayhem and Silverbacks should do real well this year in C. Key Guys and Chuck's will also be solid, I'm guessing.

    I think reckless will be just fine in C as long as they don't quit. Good pickups and core returning. Chucks should dominate in state, unless they throw in the towel and don't want to play post season.

    That tends to happen when you appoint yourself and have 0 credentials. Hopefully she will be smart enough to build on what Troy started. But I doubt it.

    Better not chime in on the sis vs monsta game or you might get yelled at for not picking monsta. If Monsta really has a chance why are there guys not all over on top 5 conference teams? I don't think they stand a chance. The 3 or 4 big guys on Monsta have to play out of there minds.

    What is worse:

    USSSA MN Director appointment or MN USA Softball having Monsta on everything?

    I think it's a toss up. Retirement pending.

    Usssa MN director is probably going to kill there tourneys. Atleast enough rubes love or hate Monsta that it causes discussion/interest.

    I really think that's the best outcome for Monsta. I'd say a sweep is the 2nd most likely outcome.

    I kind of want Monsta to win one, just to slow the crying. If SIS throttles Monsta in three games, the excuses will flow, and they'll flow hard.

    I like Monsta! It is funny that they have added free shipping to bats, I think they have a lot in stock now, demand is less. I think the only complaint is price, same is what you can get a freak or est with 12 months warranty.

    I bought an asa Harvey but haven’t tried it yet.
    If it’s a repainted est xl, still should be very good.

    Has anybody hit in the Stillwater dome? We might be scrimmaging a team, can you use hard balls? Thanks

    I like the concept of it, but I feel like its going to turn into a home run derby. I guess I don't get off on that...
    Personally I don't think games ever need more than 7, but what do I know. I'd rather watch guys take bases, and hit gaps. More demoralizing for the opponent.
    Maybe play 2 games asa rules, and 2 usssa rules. If you need to tie break after that, then figure something out.

    Man, I dig the weather today!!

    They set it up as unlimited homers because like the HOF Dual tourney the mens Major WS is unlimited as well but unlike those events this event is being played on the huge fields with 52 300's. I think you will see a lot of fly outs unless guys adjust their swings. Also which 52 300's are they using exactly? There are some 52 300's that are stadium like in hardness are they using those or true 52 300 mush....
