wish they would let me edit my roster being that scoring has not started yet. The site is a joke.

Yea they said rosters had to be edited by April 8th, thought I would at least have the morning to edit, apparently not so I've got newly demoted David Dahl in my lineup. Yay.

Either way, this is a disaster waiting to happen, only reason I entered codes was for the blue waves anyway.

I thought it started the 8th, since that was the last day to edit. Oh well, wasted HRs from Zunino and Gallo.

Well, the rules say:

Quote:
April 2013 [scoring period] will start on the later of April 1, 2013 or the first day of the applicable 2013 Minor League Baseball regular season;
But I thought I saw the 10th last time I logged on. I could be wrong.

I'm pretty sure everything started on the 8th, I wouldn't expect the actually scoring to update but once a week.

Bingo! I unlocked every player and have not even set a lineup. I knew it would be a disaster. I just want my packs.

I'm sure Topps would have to pay licensing fees to use live MiLB stats on their site. They're not going to pony up for that.

I can't even sign on to my account because I forgot my username. Anyone know how to recover that so I can reset my password?

If this is true, I'm sure they could have gotten in for next to nothing in a package deal with the 7 year exclusive MLB contract for baseball cards that they just signed.

Use Milb.com and bookmark your roster of players... as for scoring the rules state they will be scored on a weekly basis not daily.

MiLB is a distinct license.
