Superpowered Olson strikes again


Superpowered Olson strikes again

I mentioned this one briefly a few days ago, for Auto League 1179, when he was at 42 HRs in just 62 games. Now he's at 51 HRs in just 72 games! Dang........

So just out of curiosity, has anyone ever see him hit 100 or more before in an auto league? Because this particular Olson seems primed to crush the mark by the end of the season... No pun intended lol

Re: Superpowered Olson strikes again

No I actually can't say I have. But yeah I was just looking at the game by game log in our auto league to see his progress. You might be right Skooler, he is on pace to hit a 100 homeruns at the rate he's at right now. Watch, the way my team has been playing in that league, they'll get the dubious honor of giving up his 100th homer!...lol

Re: Superpowered Olson strikes again

Olson has the current site-wide auto league record with 94 dingers. However, it says records are only kept for 10 seasons, so he might've eclipsed that mark in the past, if I'm understanding it correctly.

Re: Re: Superpowered Olson strikes agai

@super yeah that's right - auto league history sticks around for 10 seasons.

Re: Superpowered Olson strikes again

Also, I'm pretty sure Fav Teams totals aren't counted in those totals, because the players regularly get deleted after each season, so those stats aren't kept because they're IMPOSSIBLE to be kept...

Re: Superpowered Olson strikes again

Sin, just out of curiosity, why did you downvote my original post?

Re: Re: Superpowered Olson strikes agai

Nothing about you, Matt Olson is a sore spot with me, he had 1 ridiculous 1/2 a season and faced garbage pitching as well as late season cup of coffee pitchers and bashed a crazy number of homers.

He has never come close to duplicating that type of production since and is the all time HR season leader on PC, it irks me, he didn't even do it over a complete season.

a 31 Fire?? shouldn't his real HR/AB be enough without a 31 fire and big boost park?? too over valued in my opinion

Re: Superpowered Olson strikes agai

Have to agree with sin on this, would love to see 2017 Olsen get a downgrade site wide, at least on that fire rating. Seems odd he can be the most valuable player in history on PC

Re: Superpowered Olson strikes again

Fair enough. And I agree with you about Olson btw...

Re: Re: Superpowered Olson strikes agai

The way to fix this would be an ATG Seasons League, that way guys who had 1 fantastic outlier Season could be regonized, and create an ATG's League but to qualify require say a minimum 400 or 450 at bats for hitters, 180-200 IP for Starters and 50 IP for RP

And please find a way to fix the value of basestealers, they add SO much to the game in real life, pitchers right now are blissfully unaware that a Ricky Henderson in his prime is on base, it has no effect on them.

Here's another example of idiocy

Rhys Hoskins 57 homers in 564 AB he hit 18 in 170 - is it really realistic that he would have done that over an entire season?

Hasn't been any where close to that since, its an insult to REAL ATG

Re: Superpowered Olson strikes agai

These guys are not in ATG, or even 1970-Present ATG.

Here is where Matt Olson is doing his damage:

Re: Re: Superpowered Olson strikes agai

Yes, I realized that after the fact - it's best of 2017 and best of 2010's

Regardless, He's simply TOO powerful, if you get him in the draft you have an unfair advantage over every other team -

I don't play in those Leagues because if you don't get him you are behind the 8 ball from the jump

he is better than ATG's in HR's in a season on the PC Leaderboard, so he does impact ATG's in a way

Re: Superpowered Olson strikes agai

Don't forget Fav team leagues. Built an A's team around 2017 just once, won a ring. Including the post season, hit around 100 HR's.

Re: Re: Superpowered Olson strikes agai

I joined a auto favorite team league and I pick him, as part of my As team 2017,1990,1909,1971 I've never used him, but see how many of you dislike him, and probably people that pick him LOL. I think I'll quite the league before it even starts.

I understand the reason but he's one player, if he's to powerful, so should be for any player that hits over 80 homers in a season.
