Sticking Points 2043.8: Valentin Out for Playoffs

In a down year for offense, Sergio Valentin has been a huge force for the Pikemen down the stretch, posting incredible numbers in July, August, and September. However, a freak accident in the New Orleans play-in game will sideline the third baseman for the extent of the playoffs, dealing a huge blow...

Re: 2043-2044 UMEBA Contraction Process

It's going to be eight teams for a very long time, Herb. We were overambitious and it's obviously caused us to make some uncomfortable decisions.

Thanks for your patience.

Re: Can A Reliever Win the Steve Nebraska In 2043?

Forget him winning; it would be criminal if Leach wasn't unanimously the Egan. He doesn't have a start this year so there isn't even a reason to consider anyone else.

Fatigue probably plays into it, but remember that Leach also leads the JL in appearances.

Re: Can A Reliever Win the Steve Nebraska In 2043?

I'll even give the "real-life" counterpoint: Leach is a stopper, so he comes into close games and pitches until the games are decided. He's mostly not used unless the game is close, so he's always in something of a pressure situation. He has 15 wins, which means he's had to come in to at least 15 ga...

Re: Can A Reliever Win the Steve Nebraska In 2043?

One could always argue that neither Leach or de'Medici pitched more than 3 innings in a contest, therefore never having to go through the lineup more than once where Kondo pitched 6, 7 and 8 innings on most occasions giving opposing batters a second and third look which is far harder for a Pitcher....

Re: Can A Reliever Win the Steve Nebraska In 2043?

Leach would be fifth among modern era players BTW (about 28th overall) for qualifying pitchers, but he can't touch de Medici.

de' Medici up to 324 K , 17.6 K/9, and 0.78 WHIP. Opponent OPS of .556., .155 BA, .283 BABIP That is in fact the modern era single season record for strikeouts. Previously held by recently inducted HOFer Amen Mitrani with 321 in 1999. Even more fucked up - he actually IMPROVED his K/9 after this ar...

Don't be silly. If you're voting for Leach I don't see any reason to put a gun to your head.

Sticking Points 2043.7: Making the Case for Danny Leach as Steve Nebraska

Aki Kondo has moved up on Danny Leach to close to the Johnson League WAR lead, and the sigh of relief you hear is from all the purists that are going to vote for Kondo as Steve Nebraska, since he's a starting pitcher with outstanding numbers that plays for San Antonio, the team with the best record...

I dunno guys, I can't really see myself voting a reliever higher than 4th on the Nebrasa ballot.
Even if the reliever throws enough innings to qualify and leads the league in WAR?

We were all rooting for you to reach 10 wins.

Won every game, then lost two close ones to New Orleans.

It's gonna be close down the stretch.
charm city lurking as well.
Nah. Right now it's my pair of jacks against AK unsuited and Charm City's holding a 9-6 of spades. Could happen, probably won't.

Danny Leach officially qualified for the ERA title this sim, too, so he's a rather big favorite to win that.

Winning sim but lost ground in the division race. But I'm up 8 on Atlantic City with 13 games to go, so playoffs, here we come.
