Re: Heart Surgery tomorrow!

So I am back ready to take charge of my team. I am now back at my parents' house convalescing (sleeping 12 to 14 hours a day) but I can still control my team from here. Thanks for everybody's understanding and support!

Re: UMEBA $40 million salary cap

I think there is a misunderstanding. If you sign someone to a major league contract (say, for $1 million/yr), then I believe you are paying that full million dollar contract even if they are in the minors, even if they have passed through waivers and are no longer on your 40-man roster). it is only ...

Heart Surgery tomorrow!

So I will be kind of absent from things for the next several days, at least. I am having my aortic valve replaced. I will try to get a robust draft list (Bucharest, UMEBA) as much as possible before I go to bed tonight.

A Stake to me heart --- Good season for all: 2041:06

So we beat Jerusalem in first round of playoff but lose in series to Istanbul. Congrats to Saikaku Aoki who win MVP award in Championship Series. Once again, we go to playoffs for third year in a row; but don't return series trophy. That ok, we do better next year. I think future bright for team as ...

Wow, for third year in row, we go to playoffs, I so excited I could pee in my pants (but I won't). Also, for second year in row, we face Jerusalem in first round of playoffs. Ok, we have to play better than last two years so we can go to finals... we should beat Jerusalem, we better team than them, ...

Huge Scandal for Impalers Results in Fookes boot!

The July 20, 2041 game between Bucharest and Mumbai will go down as more notable for its after-game explosion than for anything that happened in the 13-1 victory for Bucharest. Immediately after the end of the game, Manager Cameron Fookes [/b] literally tackled third baseman Jeffrey Cunningham [/b] ...

Re: Fun With UMEBA Baserunning - The Tag-up

Hey, RonCo, I agree with you that looking at it from a runs added perspective is nice, because both the success rate AND the number of attempts play into that. However, there is one missing piece to that... knowing the number of outs in the inning. For example, tagging up at third and scoring on the...

Re: Fun With UMEBA Grinders

Thanks! I wonder how well that correlates with walks and/or strikeouts? I would expect a pretty substantial one with walks, not so sure about strikeouts.

Re: UMEBA Walkoff Watch 2041, Sim #15

I guess that means I am the "luckiest" team so far this season.... which means maybe my lead is not as secure as it appears! Still more than half a season to go.

Re: 2041, UMEBA All-Star Voting Chatter

I just noticed that the all-star awards have changed from when I first voted --- before there was LF, CF, and RF separately. Now it has to choose three outfielders, and the votes don't transfer over. So, if you voted earlier you might want to go back in and revote the OFs in BANC and BURT (I just di...

How we see UMEBA moving forward I would be interested in doing this if others are, too. I am not exactly sur...

Comparing player ages in BBA vs. UMEBA

So I was looking in the team age page on StatsPlus and it is interesting to see the average ages for ML vs. Farm clubs BBA vs. UMEBA. 1. So, for ML age, the top eight teams (highest average) ML age are all the UMEBA teams. In other words, every UMEBA ML team has a higher average age than any of the ...
