Re: 2039 Boise Spuds Preview

I’d have to convince him to tow my car to Boise, although he’d probably be willing enough ...

You’ve got a nice little team shaping up there - you’re starting to surround French with some decent pieces. Nice job, Joe!

2039 Boise Spuds Preview

Boise Spuds Break up the Spuds ! Or at least mash them with a little butter and garlic, because the boys from Boise look like they could actually do a bit of damage in the Frontier Division this season, thanks to an active off-season and a return to health by all-Galaxy CF Dennis French . http://mo...

Re: 2039, Spring Training Sim #1 Chatter

Do we think think the exit velocity numbers are tied to anything in the player ratings, or are they just cosmetic?

Congrats, Doug. Sai and Aarav seem to have recovered from their depression quickly. Poor Mumbai ... nobody gives it the love.

Have fun in Cali!

Atlantic City Gamblers: RP Jarod Wilson was injured while attempting to tear a phonebook in half. The Diagnosis: Undisclosed injury. This injury keeps him out of action for 4-5 months.

The most curious thing about this is that Wilson, in 2039, was able to find a phone book ...

Huntsville Headlines 39.010: Archer's Journal

https://i.imgur.com/jriy2tQ.jpg By Justin Archer Special to BBA Weekly Feb. 25, 2039 Play ball! Spring training started with a … well, kind of a fizzle, really. We lost to San Antonio 6-5, our guys gave up 15 hits, and our ace Juan Nicto got out of the gate pretty slow (4 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks). Si...

Re: 2039 Preview Sign-ups

Hey, I’d like to do Boise and, if nobody else takes them, Jacksonville (because I like to see what I’m up against and I really enjoy plunging myself into a deep depression).

Re: Sticking Points 2039.3: Flores Wins Sawyer Silk

Flores is a pretty remarkable player. A player in an impact position like catcher having an offensive year like he did seems a worthy Silk award winner to me!

Cool to bring a former nemesis in as manager. Like Joe says, it’s fun learning the lore of the league and meeting some of it’s legends. Nice post!

Re: The Lair Report: 2039.05 --- New GM, new team, new name!

First of all, love your intro. You speak English good!

Second, I hope Chris Klein hits a ton for you. He was stuck at AAA for us and couldn’t get out - he finally stopped talking to us and left for FA. He’ll be a force in the UMEBA!

Re: Tater Talk: 2039.11 – Position Battles: Shortstop

Hmm. That's an interesting choice. No way, really, to platoon them because Smith doesn't pick up Torres' shortcomings at the plate - in fact, where Torres is weak, Smith is weaker. Torres has a small edge at the plate, Smith a tiny edge in the field (DPs). I guess I would look at it primarily as a d...

Two things:

Re: Tater Talk: 2039.09 – Spud Stars Take Prospect Under Wing

Nice slice of life piece - punctuating the sections with cracks of the bat is a neat technique. Plus, you’ve given us some characters (in addition to French, of course) to follow and care about.

Oh yeah - the video is epic, too.

Good stuff!

According to his player card, Santos could be my starting right fielder at 64 years old.

Congrats, Brett. A belated “well deserved!” You built a beast in Jerusalem.

I still miss the UMEBA - it was a hell of a lot of fun.
