2041.1 - Good New Bears - The One Where I Say Hi

Post by usnspecialist » Thu Jan 09, 2020 12:53 pm

Hi,

Randy said I should introduce myself. I'll help run his team for a bit. Here's some info about me.

Name: Charles August (I go by Chuck)
Occupation: Physical Therapist
Where I'm from: DC
OOTP Experience: Offline only. Randy actually got me into the game. Was talking to him about baseball and how frustrating the Nats lack of postseason success was (Not anymore! Woooohoo!) and he brought up this game.

I'll be mostly relaying instructions from him. I doubt I'll have to make any real decisions, except he'll probably be too busy for the draft.

He also mentioned that it would be cool if I wrote some team news for him if I had time. He said he never gets them done until the last minute.

So here goes. A month into the season, the Bears are first in their division. It's a bit early to rely on records much. They are 1st in runs scored and runs allowed though. That's more reassuring. No major injuries so far is nice, too. This pitching staff doesn't look that great though. The starters look solid, but this bullpen is kind of "ugh". Randy says that's how he does things, so whatever. I tend to like a lock down closer and setup guy or two. This offense is crazy good though. Randy told me the ratings are higher in this league than most, but wow!

Next week the Bears will finish a four game series against the Omaha Hawks, who are off to a pretty mediocre start. Then it's back home for a two game stint versus the Yellow Springs nine and division rival Vancouver. Yellow Springs looks pretty good out of the gate. Also, beating divisional foes is always key. A strong week could really start to cement the Bears as a frontrunner in 2041.

2041, huh? That's just weird to type. It makes sense given this being a fake league and your sim schedule. Still, it makes you wonder how baseball will look in 20 years.

Thanks for jumping on board to help Randy out. FYI, in the year 2041, it's actually politically incorrect to pay Yellow Springs any type of compliment. We'll let it slide this time.

Welcome! I appreciate you calling Omaha mediocre as well. That makes me feel a bit better about where we actually are. Welcome to the league and if you need any help while Randy is away, I will tell you which guys to trade to Omaha and which not to.

Welcome. Just a heads up, no matter how many walks or homeruns he gives up.... DO NOT trade or release Jon Reed. It will cost you a friend and possibly bodily harm. Randy has quite the man crush on him.

You don't want to know.

Welcome! I'm sure Randy's team is in just as good hands as we all are with Randy fightin' the bad guys.

Randy is the last guy you want fighting the bad guys. Keep him in the basement with the A/C and let him use his "brain."

Good luck Chuck!

Well, now I know someone already used the friends episode title schtick. I'll have to come up with something else if I write any more of these.
