I'm getting your tag now... and in other threads. I bet there's a built in function preventing a high number to be tagged at once. (to block spam)

Well, I definitely don’t want to spam anyone. Just not sure of an alternative except to assume you will all check in on your own from time to time.

I'm getting alerts in my banner just fine. I choose not to do email notifications (from most websites). In my humble opinion, @cjedmonton and his generous contests have me checking into this site on a more than daily level, specifically to look into the participation, fun, and banter these threads often have. I don't think it is the performance of the site, nor how far Chris should go to message any of us. How anyone is not checking in more often during these contests really boggles my mind. That's some of the the fun and uniqueness in participating in these.

Yeah, trying to link people in your own contest is definitely not spam but I'm guessing the system sees it that way and filters to block group callouts. If this is true it would be nice if you could change it @Shaggy that would be awesome! :)

Its almost tragic that @banjar might be missing on all these news reports stating that he is in last place. :LOL:
Perhaps you could notify 1-14 rankings, and I could give special updates daily (err... hourly) to #15

I could do occasional mass pms to members and link them to your contest..

A great idea, thanks for the offer! But, I don’t think that’s necessary.

At least half the field checks in regularly, so no need to tag them at all. For the rest, I can just tag in small batches once or twice a week.

Thanks for the support, though. Much appreciated.

Same goes for all you avid contestants!

I'd have to check, but I think I have been in 8th place the entire time. My guys need to wake up. I saw Turner pull a Hammy, so that is probably my demise right there.

Losing Turner hurts, for sure…especially since you were doubling up on his production.

I looked back and you have been solidly mid-pack almost the entire time. You’re consistent if nothing else!

Unfortunately, I think your path to victory is narrow and relies on Pollock going on a tear for another 10 games. Of course, your WS bonus picks may or may not be a factor. Wait till Monday to find out!

Haha. Well, I thought I was being all clever by picking numbers in the high 90s. But then when I saw how the contest was actually set up, I knew I had no chance. And sure enough I'm sucking hard on that hind teat!

I guess its like the start of game 5 in Squid Game...(having to pick a big or small number and not knowing the goal)

...but you did the best I'd say. Any multiplayer game with unknown variables you should pick the opposite of everyone else, so they have to compete in a deeper pool and you compete only vs yourself... and if you're wrong then you lose anyways.

I am hoping that NLCS player turns out to be Chris Taylor, only because that would mean the Dodgers won and he has had a pretty darn good run and would be a likely candidate for the award. I don't have Taylor on my team though sadly...

You may not have Taylor, but you do have Pollock! He could very well stay hot and win the award.

Either way, I’m excited to reveal everyone’s WS players on Monday. It is shaping up to provide the interesting wrinkle I was hoping for.
