The BBA Today #68 - The Trade Market is A Blazing Inferno

Post by Ted » Sun Nov 22, 2020 2:18 pm

Ron Collins and Ted Schmidt discuss the recent hire of Neil Thomas as the Valencia Stars GM. What do you do when you take over a team after half the free agents have already signed? We then take a look at a trade market that has erupted over the last few sims. Why is this happening now. Also, it's International free agency time. This is not your father's IFA. Is that good? Bad? Is it just a different way to waste your money?

Like Ted's voice can be heard from space? (Kidding! I voted that they both sound generally the same, volume-wise...Ron sounds smarter.)

I took a page out of Shoeless' playbook and picked up some nog, of which I'll enjoy while listening to this episode.

I'm very confused. I always thought the UMEBA league was pronounced you-me-buh but these radio guys say you-may-buh. Maybe its the midwestern accent?

I was able to completely sort my A & AA rosters out while being fabulously entertained by this, cutting & pasting my cheat sheets for all the players url's didn't seem so tedious somehow

Ron says it differently than me. I say ooo-ME-bah. (like amoeba but with an ooo at the beginning). Ron says YOU-may=bah. (like giving permission to "bah")

I pronounce it UMMM-EE-BAH like amoeba. Not sure if that was the intention behind naming it, but I always thought it was named like that because it's a single, shapeshifting entity like real world amoebas.

I'm on board with I like the IFA class more like this but could use a couple more studs. Maybe a 70-80 or 2, another 2-3 55-65, then as many of anything 50 down as we add.

Also, they do need to fix the IFA financials. Demands need to adjust to down to get signed. Also need to adjust to league spending. And if they're around the next class, they need to adjust to be competitive in that market to get signed.

I know OOTP was bought out so I'm not sure where the development team goes, but they probably need to add an outside consultant from the finances business if they ever wanted to take it to the next level. Someone who's creating code/programs for predicting markets and have them work with someone who understands baseball finances, at least enough to get some more accuracy.

I'm also aware this has a minuscule chance of ever happening.

I'm more or less with you. Maybe that 8 0hows up every other year. The other year a 70 or 2. But I'll take this over multiple 80s and a handful of 70's every year.
