what those numbers show me, is that you are in limbo basically. too good for D, not good enough for C. there are lots of teams between classes like that in the state. probably the reason you catch so much grief is that it is your own players, that you are loyal to, that are constantly telling the other teams below them that they need to work hard to get better and catch up to you guys. seems like a double standard, as you don't appear to be trying to improve yourselves to compete in C. just simply playing the first few months of every year in C doesn't convince me otherwise. it is what it is. doesn't help also, that you guys don't have a lot of class when beating teams that you know you shouldn't be playing to begin with. you bring these criticisms on yourselves. on the flip side, the fact that you choose to stick with your core group of guys for the purpose of playing ball together is admirable. and that's where the line gets blurred. everyone plays for their own reasons. not everybody has the desire to make this hobby of a sport into a lifetime pursuit of perfection. some folks just enjoy playing the game. which you seem to be insinuating here. fair enough. there are always going to be haters arguing for and against other teams for their own selfish reasons. my point is this...all of the discussion is pointless. as long as there are separate classes in softball, there is going to be griping from teams that aren't winning, whining about the teams that are. its that simple. you have the blessing of the state director to play in whichever class that you are in, that should be good enough. perhaps its best to just ignore the rest of the nonsense. just my opinion of course.
