Casinotes 54.2- Undercover Agent

Well, I’d seen some pretty strange specimens walk though my office door since I’d been in the baseball business, but the gentleman who had just entered had to rate near the top on the oddness scale. Scrawny, gap-toothed, sunken-eyed, ashen-complected- let’s just say he was not the usual specimen one...

Re: 2054, Sim #1 Chatter

If there were ever any doubt that I’m a “glass half full” guy… when I saw that my team scored only four runs in its first seven games, one of my first thoughts was “well, I ought to be able to get a Team News out of that”.

Casinotes 54.1- New Faces of 2054

When financial pressures have got your unmentionables in the vise like mine do, you can’t really offer much in the way of a long-term contract to any free agent. And when you can’t offer long-term contracts, the players you get pretty much tend to be from the “irregulars” bin. And since I also don’t...

Re: Rule Changes for 2054

Casinotes 53.5- Aftermath

I’m generally not much of a drinking man, but after the Gamblers were swept out of the playoffs by Phoenix, I sat in my office and poured myself a couple of fingers of the bourbon that our owner had gifted me when we clinched a playoff spot. Maybe more than a couple of fingers. Maybe three fingers a...

Re: 2053 Geoghegan Preview: Talons vs Gamblers (Best of 5)

I really think I need one more pitcher to be a serious playoff contender… or one more hitter…or one more SOMETHING. Anyway, I feel like the Gamblers might have a chance in this series, but I don’t see us as a long-term threat.

2053 End-Of-Season Awards

Well, the Fighting Centaurs season ended without a trip to the playoffs, but 87 wins is still nothing to sneeze at, so let’s at least acknowledge some of the fine individual performances of 2053… MVP: Quinn Greene- Of course. 55 homers, 135 RBIs, 7.6 WAR. Signed an extension that will keep him in th...

Casinotes 53.4- You Can't Go Home Again

This was, I was beginning to think, not my best idea ever. Four hours on a plane, sitting in between a morbidly obese man and his morbidly obese wife. I had offered to change seats so they could be together, but they declined. “Gert likes a window seat, and I like the aisle, so we’re fine the way it...

Re: 2053, BBA All-Star Voting Chatter

So, just curious… how do you guys select relief pitchers for all-star teams? Personally, I start by sorting the contenders by saves. If a pitcher has a lot of saves with not any losses and a good WHIP, in they go. Then I sort by holds and do the same. Finally, I sort by innings pitched and try to fi...

Re: 2053.2: Bearing Fruit – San Fernando Drafts Six Times in First 89 Picks

I always think that some year I’d like to scout nothing but the hitters in a draft, then the next year scout nothing but pitchers. You’d get more in-depth scouting done that way. Looks like that’s pretty much what you did this year.
