TWC Resigns

Well, I guess when you are upset about something, and a league GB member chooses to mock your being upset, it's time to go.

Later folks. Have fun.

Re: Twin Cities Boycotting the Rest of the Regular Season in Protest

I'm not trying to be dramatic. https://i2-prod.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article10496506.ece/ALTERNATES/s615b/Little-girl-from-side-eye-meme-all-grown-up.jpg Hey Chad. I'm clearly upset about something I care a ton about and put a lot of time and effort into, and you choose snark as a reaction to that....

Twin Cities Boycotting the Rest of the Regular Season in Protest

I'm not trying to be dramatic. I'm simply making the point that this isn't okay. I was pretty angry yesterday when I found out about an extra sim that there was no notification of. That anger was compounded by the fact that I had a shit sim, losing the last wild card spot. I'm now 2.5 games out inst...

Re: 2045, Sim #25 Chatter

We have a sim on every day someone says "Happy Sim Day" in Slack lol. I appreciate those reminders and I am considering making a little alert for myself in Slack to push a notification whenever anyone says happy sim day, but I know everyone in slack would fuck with me. Reading the slack general thr...

There are disasters and then there's Twin Cities maybe not making the playoffs-level disaster.
I am ... irritated. Me screwing up extra sims is one thing, but this team should be hitting far better than they have. Oh well. Only another 18 real life months until I get to START the rebuild.

I know he was young and a long way away at the time, but it's crazy to see how Rodriguez was traded 3 times for old declining vets.

Re: Team Chemistry - BIG impact

I started to post this, then I didn't, then I decided to. Ron, I give up. I jokingly poked fun at myself over this topic. Then I decided to harmlessly rant about what I believe to be a silly system, non-representative of reality, that only adds frustration to the game. I think I am not alone in tha...

I'll donate 2 PPT to anyone who can predict how many times Ted mentiones that he is a doctor during the course of this thread. "I went to med school" counts as well. Have fun!

Re: Team Chemistry - BIG impact

Ron, I'd appreciate it if you'd stop comparing things like park effects that we have numerical data to model upon with personality and baseball team chemistry that we do not have any hard data for. Doing so is at worst intellectually dishonest and at best shows a shocking lack of understanding on y...

Re: Team Chemistry - BIG impact

I went to med school. I had a class of about 200. They told us the first day that it would get weird, because while we had all been the smartest ones among our peers before, most of us no longer would be. Some of us had "failed" at school before. Some hadn't. Obviously, none of us had failed much b...

Re: Team Chemistry - BIG impact

The practice quote from AI is one of the most horribly misused quotes ever. He was incensed that he was being asked about practice when there were bad real game results and someone was bringing up practice culture shit they clearly didn't understand. It has since been made out that he was lazy. And ...

Re: Team Chemistry - BIG impact

The issue you’re dealing with is that the model of human interaction is complex, and that culture in one place is different than culture in another place. It is not a stretch to equate the impact of culture on teams in one place with those in another place. Many corporate teams roles are quite disc...

Re: Team Chemistry - BIG impact

I have a very mediocre level of athletic talent, so I don't have the experience there, but I can tell you about one place of "elite-ness" that I'm drawing these parallels from. I went to med school. I had a class of about 200. They told us the first day that it would get weird, because while we had ...

Well, now I'm on fire. Thanks guys. OOTP has internal ratings for "handle success" and "Handle failure". Are you shitting me? Repeat after me: NO ONE LIKES LOSING. Or playing poorly. Or whatever.

Re: Team Chemistry - BIG impact

This is the same as any job I've ever had. When things are going well, everyone gets along. When they aren't, people start to have conflict. The only difference is that no job environment tolerates people who aren't pulling their own weight (i.e. slackers). Those people don't exist in sport. Lazy pe...

Re: Team Chemistry - BIG impact

No one has ever shown any cause-effect relationship of chemistry or personality types in real life. This is not really true. Team dynamics have been studied intensely in many industries. Team chemistry and social interactions can make a clearly measurable impact on actual performance. Okay, it's ne...
