LATE START - something smells Rosenfishy

West Plays Choice Parts at late at 3pm on September 9th in the Bog Apple Semi-Finals

hmmmm inquiring minds must probe deeper what's up with this late start for a best of 3 series?

Top Ten Real Reasons WEST plays CHOICE PARTS so late at 3pm on September 9th

10. ARE YOUR READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!!! NFL begins maybe the guys want to watch the 1st half of Jets- Pats - nah that's not it - watch highlights on ESPN later
9. Best fall league in NYC - Inwood , www.citysoftball.com , begins on that date - maybe some of the guys will play in the morning - nah that's not it - week one is wack anyway
8. Maybe some of the guys want to watch The Working Cedric's play Contact at 1pm - nah that's not it - no runs will scored there anyway
7. My team Gallagher's is playing the Bombers in the loser's bracket at 1pm - yawn - nah that's not it
6. Rain is in the forecast until 2:59pm then there will be a window of opportunity to play the games - like Yanks-Tigers last Friday night - nah that's not it
5. Lights must be getting installed at Hecksher b/c playing a best of 2 out of 3 in one day in only
3 1/2 hours of daylight when the permits are about to expire otherwise seems impossible-
nah that' s not it my bad - no lights at Central park ballfields
4. Networks have targeted the West - Parts match up as getting higher ratings in the 3pm spot - oops my bad no TV revenue on that - Smokey and Panama have exclusive licensing rights on all beer and weed
3. Someone on the parts must be getting to the game late - maybe Kip's supermodel girlffriend has a photo shoot or something - nah Kip is a gamer he wouldn't be late
2. Shiesty - hmm getting warmer - but who could be so shiesty and manipulative?

and the #1 Real Reasons WEST plays CHOICE PARTS so late at 3pm on Spetmeber 9th

1, Obvious stall tactic by trusted league official John Rosenmillier and coincidentally manager of Choice Parts. He wants slinger John Brown (actually he's a nice guy) to pitch in game one.
Bown pitches in the playoffs in Red Hook with the Clemente Pirates earlier that same day.
I guess Rosenmiller doesn't trust sidearm Doc or Castillo to pitch game one of the playoffs. We have all stalled for a good player to show up, I know I have (Marty and Mark did it this past weekend) that's OK. But this down right ridiculous and an abuse of power. What if they run out of day light? Does someone have to play 4 games the following week when this could be avoided by a 2 or 1pm start? Foul

  1. I laughed my ass off when i saw the late start. It goes to show, John Brown is the whole team. The guy is a great pitcher. If it was a single game, id say 100% i agree with getting whatever they want. However, being that its a 2 out of 3 series have some faith in the rest of the team. 3pm is to late, 2pm is a better compromise because of daylight, if it goes 3 games. If we go 2 games and then have to come back another week then they will have Brown again. Teams play without their ACE SP and won, lets see CP try it. I dont think they can win without him so what the hell, go for whatever advantage you can if you have a choice. They wont impress me if they win. You think any team Brown plays with wins without him? Thats why leagues need to change or enforce PITCHING RULES!!! Thats why ill always root for the UNDERDOGS!!

  2. You are sooooooooooo right. Anything to finally beat us or, if they get their wish, WC. He's all about BS and now he's showing his true colors which everybody already knew about anyway. SAD!!! How is the league letting him get away with it? He has more power than the commissioner?

    Peace

  3. Best of 3 playoff series start at 3pm? Completely ridiculous!!!. This league has been exposed this year as a joke. The scheduling was ridiculous, most of the umps are bad/indifferent, some rules are unfair and dumb, the pitching guidelines are non-existent (slingers roam free). Only 2 good things in the Big Aple league: the fields, and for the most part, the players. All else needs an overhaul and it should start the top with the commissioner.

  4. Why dont they just list start time as TBA-WBS. To Be Announced When Brown Shows. I would respect that because your up front. We all know other teams dont want to face Brown, thats no secret. I heard at a meeting John Rosenfishy voted to have Brown not in league until he was reported to join CP, then his integrity went out the window.HaHa. Lets hope it starts at 3pm on the dot, no 15 minute forfeit time or batting practice BS. Have some real umps with guts to call illegal pitches, wishfull thinking on my part.

  5. If the Bombers or Excelsior.... two teams with only 3 wins each.... had John Brown as one of their pitchers, they would probably make the finals or win the championship. All they would have to do is score one or maybe two runs.

    Maybe we should think about making the league a true modified league next year. The games would be more exciting and the fielders would have something to do.

  6. As manager of West, I totally agree with some of the comments made here.
    1.Umps are pretty bad, please have 4 best umps on the 9th, please.
    2.Only reason we are starting at 3PM is because of John Brown.
    3.CP's Doc has been there all year and they have won, but obviously he is not trusted enough to win for his team. John C. should also take this as a slap in the face.
    4.But on the other hand when you are in 1st, it's you're perogative!
    5.The only thing that really bothers me about this is having to possibly play 4 games on Championship Day. This is BULLSHIT!
    You're tired after 2 or 3 games, but 4, GARBAGE!

  8. Doc and JC are used to being bitch-slapped. Why dont they just stay home, even if they win how could they celebrate as a "team". Id feel like a used piece of meat. Their teammates wont even thank them for getting the choice to decide when they play since they won 1st place. I guess you could look at it like that, Doc and JC did their job by getting them to 1st place so they could decide when and where to play. Im shocked we arent playing in Red Hook. Who knows, we have 2 weeks to see whatelse is up JR's sleeve. Maybe CP is spraying the fields or the drainage pipes are sticking out of the grass so the games have to be moved!haha

  10. As per the schedule, game times are 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Obviously, teams play at 1pm because the 11am slot is occuipied. You play at 3am cuz the 11am and 1pm slots are occupied.

    Why would you start a series so late (3pm)? That's an excellent question. You see, Brown is a hired gun and at $100 per Sunday if he doesn't win the chip Rosenmiller is going to be out a pretty penny and then some. He has to do whatever he can to recoup his investment.

    The league, the commissioner and league officials, need to be held accountable. This is blatantly cheating and if these games jump off at 3pm stop bitching! Let them know you won't be bringing back your team next year.

    The managers are at fault here! Honestly guys, hasn't this happened one too many times before? Why didn't you ask for the complete playoff schedule with game times in advance? You left an open window for this abuse of power to occur.

    Everyone thats offended by this, let Rosencheater know! Ice him out, ignore him and let him know that you are disgusted in his behavior, actions and how he has disrespected this game.
