deyanksfan (Red Sox) at 2/13/2020 8:54 PM: as of right this second, everyone in the diamond league is on a winning streak
pamash07 (Giants) at 2/6/2020 7:11 AM: Good to start to the new season and league...
deyanksfan (Red Sox) at 2/4/2020 9:04 AM: lots of parity in this league so far
Warrior (Nationals) at 2/2/2020 5:25 PM: Ouch,we were shut out! Tough League,good Challenge;this is why I came to PC.
Warrior (Nationals) at 2/2/2020 11:56 AM: No offense and we lose a close one,Clippard comes in and immediately allows the game-winning hit;not what he is supposed to do.The whole team will feel the wrath and will be worked into rthe ground until things normalize!
Goodfella (Yankees) at 2/2/2020 11:14 AM: Yankees get outhit in both games so far but find a way to win. Just get us to.the bullpen baby, just get us to.that pen.
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 2/2/2020 10:35 AM: Tykyvi still think Boston's SP are invincible after that win? Lol
Warrior (Nationals) at 2/2/2020 10:24 AM: Scherzer has a great performance in Washington's first game,not much offense but we will take it.
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 2/1/2020 3:04 PM: True story on Yogi
Warrior (Nationals) at 2/1/2020 2:46 PM: I have a new LG phone but still not much room on the chatbar,things go much better on the computer.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 2/1/2020 1:32 PM: Plus its on my phone and makes it worst. I know some people are on computers or big phones, im typing off my star tek motorolla flip phone...haha
Goodfella (Yankees) at 2/1/2020 1:31 PM: Yeah i do buddy
Warrior (Nationals) at 2/1/2020 10:25 AM: I need to scout the Cubs,have not studied them extensively and the season is close to starting.
Warrior (Nationals) at 2/1/2020 10:23 AM: Hey Goodfella do you also hate the way the chat bar is so small we type stuff in and can not fix it before we send it? Noticed you seem to have the same problem as me.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 2/1/2020 9:52 AM: S im stuck in a division with red sox, cubs, nats and dodge4s....the 4 teams which qre loaded...ok i may win 4 games 5his season...maybe
Warrior (Nationals) at 2/1/2020 9:04 AM: Red Sox look great but the Nats also strong on defense.
Warrior (Nationals) at 2/1/2020 9:00 AM: I put was in there twice. Will research that trade later,obviously at first sight seems to be heavy in the Giants favor.Have to go home and get on my computer.
Warrior (Nationals) at 2/1/2020 8:57 AM: Do any of those Shortstops have any freak seasons with low at-bats or was McGwire was traded for 2 normal players?
Warrior (Nationals) at 2/1/2020 8:55 AM: That Yogi story is it actually true or a Yogiism?
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 2/1/2020 8:52 AM: A's have cornered the market on SS's
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 2/1/2020 8:40 AM: Yogi was in a parade in NY on a hot day and the mayor's wife commented on how cool and refreshed Yogi looked. He said back to her " you don't look so hot yourself "
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 2/1/2020 7:18 AM: Red Sox starting pitching should be ruled illegal , brutal, just brutal .
DukeBlues (Indians) at 2/1/2020 7:04 AM: We're all good. First pitch tomorrow morning : )
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/31/2020 9:31 PM: Warrior it looks SFG's owner hasn't been on PC in 4 days, that's likely why the lineup isn't complete
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 8:42 PM: Of course Ryan for Fregosi waa a fiasco but they were stocked with pitchers. Stuff happens.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 8:41 PM: Yogi won everywhere he went,bad idea to dump him;the Mets were much smarter.
timnara1 (Athletics) at 1/31/2020 6:45 PM: Looking for a SS
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/31/2020 4:11 PM: The Cards came from 10 1/2 back in late August to win the World Series. Of course then Busch wanted to keep Keane. Busch had a press conference to announce he was gonna extend Keane , Keane informed Busch 10 minutes before hand he was quitting and going to the Yanks A very tedious situation.
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/31/2020 4:09 PM: Crazy story there, the Yankees and Keane talked early in the season to make the switch. Yankees were gonna fire Yogi and Keane was fed up with Gussie Busch.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 3:36 PM: What nut would not use Gibson? That's your meal ticket.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 3:35 PM: And Keane was the Manager who went over to the Yanks in 65 then they fell apart and did not have much success until Virdon and then Martin managed them.
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/31/2020 3:32 PM: Solly got canned, Johnny Keane got the job and the rest is World Series history
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/31/2020 3:31 PM: Cardinals went thru that with Solly Hemus. He wouldn't play Gibson, Bill White or Curt Flood.
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/31/2020 3:30 PM: And like you said, I had heard that Al Dark favored players of lighter skin
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/31/2020 3:29 PM: I had read once that Willie went thru a bitter divorce out in San Fran and his personality did a 180
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 2:30 PM: Cepeda book-Baby Bull.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 2:29 PM: Giants problems back in the day were associated with their Manager Al Dark who was accused of only playing a certain amount of minority and was not liked by many of his better players. Cepeda covered this extensively in his book,so my real life favorite team had problems as well. Apparently Mays was not as well liked in S.F. and both fans there and many of the younger players did not respect him as much as the fans and players in New York did.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 2:22 PM: Clemente and Snider together and the Dodgers would have been far more dangerous in the early L.A. years,no doubt.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 2:15 PM: When I watched it I thought it was a good movie but they should make another one which better covers his whole career rather than the short time period 42 covered.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 2:00 PM: Jackie Robinson 42,I have it on DVD.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 1:51 PM: Back to this League.( Note) I am playing the Giants who currently are showing NA in 8th and 9th spot in batting order.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 1:47 PM: Pedro and Ramon both stay with the Dodgers they would have been very hard to beat,who knows what happened there?
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 1:39 PM: I need to watch that movie 24 or whatever based on Jackie Robinso again.Other than some complaints about a pitcher on another team being unfairly characterized as a racist it received nearly universal approval.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/31/2020 1:35 PM: Duke.your a Dodger fan;I thought the name of the Dodgers farm team was Royals not Expos. Is that incorrect or was it changed at some point?
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/31/2020 8:05 AM: Sorry didnt see thqt, thought i was at 25/25. Made the correc5ion
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/31/2020 7:34 AM: Yankees need to make one more player off their minor roster
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/31/2020 7:30 AM: Giants need to move 4 players to the minors.
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/31/2020 7:28 AM: Pedro Martinez was a Dodger first. He played his first two season with them before the Dodgers traded him to the Expos for Delino DeShields. What a bust that was for the Dodgers, his best year with them, he hit a robust .258. We know who the winner was on that trade. The Dodgers have done a couple of dumb moves. The lost Roberto Clemente because they failed to protect him, think they could hide him with their minor league team, the Expos. Pirates jumped all over that one..
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/31/2020 7:23 AM: That is already in the rules.
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/31/2020 7:23 AM: There is no duplicate players allowed on the same team. Period.
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/31/2020 6:14 AM: If trading is allowed, a suggestion to avoid the issue I brought up is to simply adda sub-rule like this: any trades that would add a player to a twam that already has him must include the same player on the other team as well, and if a players lasts through to another season where he appears before the first version retires, he will not be imported until after the 1st version retires. Example, Pedro in 2000 traded from BOS to say, WSN, Pedro is 34, and WSN doesn't have the original version anymore for whatever reason, WSN currently is at 1993, whenever Pedro would have begun with Montreal in real life, he wouldn't be imported until after the 2000 late 30's version retires, and if he's still there after 1997, Pedro wouldn't import until another year choice reaches the mid 1990's. Sorry this is very long. Any thoughts?
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/31/2020 6:08 AM: And remember, the last rule says rules may be added as needed. With this being our first season and we haven't started yet, I say if there are any ideas now would be the PERFECT time to look at them and do some league polls . This is a terrific group of owners here with alot of expierence .
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/30/2020 8:06 PM: The rule that shouldn't be in and this would solve all of the issues, is you cannot re-draft your 4 seasons. The 4 you choose is what you will build off of for the coming seasons. No re-drafting of seasons. The first 4 , make em good !
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/30/2020 7:53 PM: My seasons were 2004, 1979, 1966, 1948. My only options for next season are 2005, 1980, 1967, or 1949. Just one and those are my only options.
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/30/2020 7:51 PM: You will choose just 1 import year per season. It will be a year directly following one of the 4 you chose originally. You do not go backwards in terms of seasons, only the next season is available
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 7:12 PM: also.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 7:12 PM: Yes,will get back to you on the players on the trade block Goodfella. Would like to have one of those old-time types with the high on-base percentage but like to trade to balance things out so I have good prospects available for every position.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 6:56 PM: Agreed,its hardball and can tend to get heated sometimes,not changing the rules would help to prevent that,I would think.
littlereb (Cubs) at 1/30/2020 6:41 PM: I would not change no rules now. Wait until the end of this season and we can vote on rule changes then.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 6:41 PM: I do not know,have never been in this type of League before.Was in A.L. Replay and then it changed.
littlereb (Cubs) at 1/30/2020 6:40 PM: If I'm not mistaken, after the season you don't get the players from all 4 years added to your team. You get 1 year and you choose the year.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 6:35 PM: Actually like the 25/25 but my point is these were rule changes. If we have concern about Owners manipulating rules changes or suspicions about them then let us agree not to change them.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/30/2020 6:31 PM: Also i have players you may like on trade block, looking for a young starter though.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/30/2020 6:30 PM: Warrioors, i suggested the 25 player minors, i never said it should be done so if i upset you with that i appologize. I just figured it gave teams a chance to keep some players they could develop
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 6:29 PM: I was in this League and won the Championship in the last season of a completely different League ,I did not even have the right stadium until I just changed it yesterday.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/30/2020 6:28 PM: Sorry, wasnt aware it was just a jobe buddy.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/30/2020 6:27 PM: Its more interesting having trades, some teams have a history of great pitching, no hit5ing, others great hitting no pitching so why shouldnt those teams be able to help out their teams
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 6:27 PM: My point was more directed at the other guy who seems to be throwing out assertions about changing rules,besides the fact that he is throwing out things about ideas that have very little chance of happening .I feel it tells me something about his character the way he chooses to make his assertions. Why was this no rule change morality not mentioned when rosters changed from 25/25 to 25/15 and when there was a vote about players becoming hitters/pitcher duos and now trades.It makes mre suspicious about his motives when someone says everyone knew this about this and this in a League when the rules were not even posted when I first heard about this League.
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/30/2020 5:56 PM: I really wasn't trying to start a movement . I was just throwing some chatter out there. Rules say trades, so there are trades. Which is certainly fine with me. If this league was just starting tho, I would vote for no trades.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 5:40 PM: I am out for the time being about rules changes discussion and will vote against every rule change unless absolutely necessary. A couple of trade offers will be going out to those interested,though mainly interested in McGwire on the block Nationals will be looking at others placed there as well. If anybody has one of those old guys that can not field but hit well I may be interested in them.The Nats have a many relievers with good stat changes coming up and could trade a few of them for the right player.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 5:14 PM: if your going to keep rules keep all the rules not just the ones that help certain teams.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 5:13 PM: So will vote for keeping the rules the same and keeping trading on.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 5:11 PM: It clearly leaves teams in a bad spot and looks very suspicious.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 5:11 PM: Agreed we should not change rules,though there was already a vote on having players on teams who could both be batters/pitchers which was not included in rules and we now have a movement for no trading which clearly was allowed in the rules. I am going to agree with if you are honest here but this no-trade now and the justification for it is obviously b.s.
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/30/2020 3:58 PM: I was honestly kidding goody, I actually don't think that's the best idea to utilize in a league like this, I was just poking fun at it
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/30/2020 3:51 PM: We.cant start making up rules now, we knew when we drafted teams how it ran and if teams decided to take 2018 or 19 seasons thats on those teams. I thought about 2019 yankees or even 2018 but knowing how the league ran i stayed away. You cant now say hey lets help those teams out and do a reverse stats thingy. If that was a rule to start then ok, but to add it because a team want the strong 2018 or 19 season and then to have them get even better by going backwards is unfair. If thats allowed then i would want to change to my 2019 team then. And who knows how many other teams would want that too.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 2:50 PM: Back to fountain of youth,this is already in play. An example I have the 1987 Expos and the 1997 Expos so I will be using Pedro from my 97 team for 10 years then after 10 years I will drop that version of Pedro and my 87 imports will have reached 1997 and I will have the 1997 Pedro again.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 2:47 PM: They have only 3 sets of imports should have been typed in.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 2:46 PM: The point being that the Dodgers will be at a severe disadvantage when other teams have 4 full sets of imports and they have only plus many of their players age unfavorably. Sooner or later every set of imports will age and Owners will have to pick new teams occasionally under the current conditions.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 2:42 PM: My idea is when a team has a set of their imports who reach the current real-time such as the 2019 Dodgers after this season they could re-start that set of imports at the beginning of their franchise history .
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/30/2020 2:19 PM: I would think that a rule would have to be put into place in regards to go backwards on stat changes . That just doesnt make sense . A similar league like this I'm in set the cutoff at 2015 for draft seasons to avoid that exact thing
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 2:12 PM: Should have said 5 seasons later they could suddenly become 4 years younger. Hard to type this stuff on a phone sometimes.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 2:09 PM: I figure that many of my 2017 Nationals players might play 3 or 4 seasons then suddenly reach the point where they age with out the opportunity to change stats and 5 seasons can suddenly become 4 years younger by changing their stats.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/30/2020 2:03 PM: I would like to point out something else and use the Dodgers in this example because they are using a 2019 team. After the first season unless the season takes incredibly long to complete which I prefer to believe will not happen or at least should not happen the Dodgers will have only 3 sets of imports instead of 4 like most of the other teams.Now if 3 or 4 seasons down the line in our Leagues timeline their players that started in the year 2019 and we switch to 2020 and some of his players use change stats feature they will suddenly become younger at that point. So in fact we may have a built-in "Fountain Of Youth"
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/30/2020 1:33 PM: Actually, it's really not a bad idea to have no trading, since we do have a fair number of duplicate players
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/30/2020 1:31 PM: Well I know EXACTLY who I'd pick for several years cut off of his age lol. And trading, doesn't matter to me either way... I'm game with whatever the league decides to on that
littlereb (Cubs) at 1/30/2020 11:49 AM: I would vote no trades also.
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/30/2020 10:33 AM: I would rather have the " fountain of youth " rule, pick any guy and take 5 years off his age, lol
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/30/2020 10:32 AM: With all of the activity going on here , the 50 man roster, new imports every season, I would like to see what everyone's thoughts are on trades. I would vote that trades are not allowed
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/30/2020 3:27 AM: Essentially the 4 season you took are the starting point. Each offseason the next year after each year is what you have to pick from. Example: I took 1886, 1962, 1993, and 2019, so for next season I can choose ome of the following years: 1887, 1963 and 1994 (no 2020 yet so that's a no-go)
littlereb (Cubs) at 1/30/2020 2:05 AM: Minor league players if a regular is under performing.
littlereb (Cubs) at 1/30/2020 2:04 AM: You get new recruits after the season. What you have on your roster is what you have for this season. Unless you make some trades. Try your minor league players
timnara1 (Athletics) at 1/29/2020 9:56 PM: One more question, where do we find new recruits at
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/29/2020 9:06 PM: And very scary looking. David Hansen? Nice acquistion,these guys you never ever heard of can be really dangerous in this type of League.
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/29/2020 8:57 PM: Alright Dodgers are (finally) ready and rearing to go
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/29/2020 6:22 PM: Great Defense not so great Offense at this point.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/29/2020 6:21 PM: The Nationals are at 25/25 and line-ups set!
timnara1 (Athletics) at 1/29/2020 1:55 PM: Thanks I got it now
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/29/2020 1:46 PM: And trading is also available.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/29/2020 1:46 PM: No free agents in this League hence no waiver claims,basically we put 25 in our Majors and 25 in our Minors right now and our imports come in after each season.
timnara1 (Athletics) at 1/29/2020 1:21 PM: How do we make claims I see no where to do it
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/29/2020 12:55 PM: Already we have 123 at the try-out camp.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/29/2020 12:53 PM: So many players are flying into the Nations Capital that we barely have any room on the practice fields. It is going to be a tough try-out and a lot of good ones will be visited by the infamous Turk.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/29/2020 12:50 PM: As Hank Stram once said "Here we go boys "
littlereb (Cubs) at 1/29/2020 11:38 AM: Welcome to timnara.
timnara1 (Braves) at 1/29/2020 11:34 AM: Waiting to switch to A’s
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/29/2020 11:27 AM: As a Veteran Owner I have learned that "The Devil really is in the Details in PC Leagues" and figured I would pass this along.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/29/2020 11:25 AM: Bit of useful information.Players under 100 at-bats and under 20 innings pitched do not progress using Classical Progression.Those are the cut-offs. For anyone interested I just posted on the Global Message Boards today under the heading "Classical Progression" and received a response from YANKEEBB. There was also some mention of a slower progression for batters with between 100-300 at-bats and the likelihood of something similar for pitchers.
tykyvi (Cardinals) at 1/29/2020 10:14 AM: Welcome timnara ! Glad you are with us
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/29/2020 9:17 AM: Welcome timnara1!
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/29/2020 7:53 AM: And we are full. : )
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/29/2020 7:20 AM: Remember timnara, you can bring in any time that has not already been taken. Your choice
timnara1 (Braves) at 1/29/2020 7:03 AM: Thanks
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/29/2020 5:54 AM: Welcome aboard timnara
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/29/2020 5:20 AM: Im willing to pay schooler. I can give you a 3rd rd pick for buehler and another 90 ranked starter....deal?????
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/29/2020 5:12 AM: Aaaaaaaaand, Dodgers cuts finally done (after an unexpected delay of 1 day lol), now just to do 25 minor league demotions... ugh lol
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/29/2020 4:57 AM: Nope! Not unless you're willing to pay greatly for any of mine 😁😂
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/28/2020 5:19 PM: Sooo...who is gonna lend me a stud young pitcher for 7 to 10 years?
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/28/2020 3:27 PM: Yes he is a strong Manager in several Leagues.
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/28/2020 3:03 PM: I PM'd Tacomaboy with an invite.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/28/2020 2:41 PM: ok,I am busy today but will check tomorrow and if spots are still open will contact Duke about that possibility.Seems like we should be able to find some candidates even though this format is a lot different than most.
tykyvi (Cardinals) at 1/28/2020 2:08 PM: I have seen him in a league or two. I say go get him
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/28/2020 12:50 PM: tacomaboy57,who knows how many tacomaboy's are on the site.Anyway long_term vets know who he is.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/28/2020 12:48 PM: Maybe I will contact him.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/28/2020 12:47 PM: Has anyone contacted Tacomaboy about this League? I was thinking about potential recruits and he would probably be very successful in this style League.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/28/2020 12:44 PM: Good one!
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/28/2020 12:26 PM: Nqts will be completed after game 160, cant have another stud team in the league...haha
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/28/2020 10:38 AM: And the Nationals,what is the time frame for my imports?
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/28/2020 10:13 AM: I'm back on the two vacant teams, I will try and finish these two today
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/27/2020 6:39 PM: Unfortunately I can't finish tonight, tomorrow I hope to finish my cuts...
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/27/2020 12:50 PM: Textierrq or martinez for a young 80 plus ranked starter for whoever is interested....open to more than one trade for both these guys, meaning if i trade one i would still look to.trade the other for same return. So if pedro for tino happens i would still do big unit for tex trade....also some of my outfielders can go too if you dont need a 1b and want to.send over a starter
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/27/2020 12:48 PM: Sent my age corrections in to duke, now we look better than before...haha
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/27/2020 12:43 PM: Ok time to stop procrastinating, tonight after work my drops get done! 😂
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/27/2020 12:42 PM: I always wonder why PC and BBRef have discrepancies when a PC league imports a player... 🤔
skooler1 (Dodgers) at 1/27/2020 12:40 PM: Dang I'm glad Tony Gonsolin has exactly 40 IP... Lol
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/27/2020 12:22 PM: Yeah, if any of you 8 starter deep teams are.looking to move an qce let us know in ny.
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/27/2020 11:52 AM: I have to take 5. My eyes are about to fall out of my head.
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/27/2020 9:51 AM: I have been reading your post here Warrior, find them really interesting points of view.
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/27/2020 9:50 AM: I am going to import the Pirates now. Get that one behind me.
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/27/2020 9:49 AM: The division are not set. I am going to run a random draft to place the teams in divisions
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/27/2020 9:46 AM: Have to say Diamond looks a lot stronger than Gold right now. Have to see what hapoens with the Orioles and Giants but I think we will battling in the toughest Division in year one. Pedro should be good nevertheless but the Nats could be under heavy fire as well.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/27/2020 9:43 AM: Strong Starting Pitcher is Guidry but the Yanks should have a good future. You have a lot of great Relievers and some awesome hitting teams should emerge in future Yankee seasons.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/27/2020 9:41 AM: It is a possibility because the Giants and Orioles are on the other side and your only
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/27/2020 9:32 AM: Looking at other teams, we are headed for a last place.finish here in ny
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/27/2020 8:31 AM: Baltimore,San Francisco,& Washington still need imports.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/27/2020 8:29 AM: Unless Sf returns I probably should be receiving the next set of imports,anyway if that happens the Nats should be able to line them up and set them up quickly!
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/27/2020 6:37 AM: I'm set too.
DukeBlues (Indians) at 1/27/2020 6:36 AM: Please Remember, I am going to have to go in and change all the pitchers with less than 40 IP to RP. That is the rule
littlereb (Cubs) at 1/27/2020 3:25 AM: Cubs roster is set, lineups set. Ready to start season, lol.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/26/2020 7:09 PM: If they do not roll back the best case scenario would be to have many young players and use the PC progression system to improve what you have. This becomes very interesting.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/26/2020 7:05 PM: Of course according to the rules I could change my team(s) after 4 seasons so either way I have options to improve my situation at that point.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/26/2020 7:03 PM: Interesting point came up in my mind. If the 4th of my team that represents the 2017 Nationals reaches the current season whether it be 2019 or 2020 do they roll back to my first season in my case 1969 or do I just stop at the present and populate my teams from my other 3 top choices?
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/26/2020 6:53 PM: Carlton at 52 innings is pretty good,not quite as good as some of the pitchers I have had in the 20's but still very dangerous.And Kennedy and Molina are about as good as you could get with progressions being barely over 100 at-bats. Yes the Cards could be scary in a few seasons.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/26/2020 6:48 PM: TyKyVi Carlton and Kennedy will both have monster progressions after this season, I believe. Starting pitchers with over 20 innings pitched usually rapidly progress and as long as your hitters have above 100 at-bats and progress you want them to have as few at-bats as possible so they will rapidly improve.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/26/2020 6:28 PM: If they did my teams would be nearly unbeatable come playoff time.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/26/2020 6:27 PM: Kobe passes away in an airplane accident,though I am not a Lakers fan I do wish all my sim players had Kobe's incredible drive!
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/26/2020 6:15 PM: Guidry is 28 here but 27 according to baseball reference so you probably will need to check into that and probably sent a list of potential corrections to the Commish.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/26/2020 6:06 PM: Yeah i will be looking at the ages tomorrow, i had family stuff today and spent the morning dismantling the roster. Thank you .
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/26/2020 5:58 PM: That goes for anyone
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/26/2020 5:57 PM: Was looking at that roster Goodfella. Don't forget to check those ages, I see the 1997 Tino Martinez, Bernie Williams, Jeff Nelson are all 1 year too old on PC. I bet like me, you will find a bunch of em like that. Get me a list, I will change them for you
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/26/2020 5:51 PM: And I have several players that I won't choose the regular progression and will stat change instead
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/26/2020 5:50 PM: actually Goodfella, your the one that really got me thinking in that direction. It makes sense to me
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/26/2020 5:49 PM: If this was a one and done I would have drafted differently but trying to stay competitive for a few seasons adds a challenge.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/26/2020 5:47 PM: Im gonna be honest, i didnt know how the season 2 was gonna run so i only went with whats this team gonna be going forward with just the players i have now....
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/26/2020 5:35 PM: in all honesty on Hornsby, his '22 season was still so good I totally went for the 26 year old Rajah instead of the 29 or 30 year old version . Not sure I made the right choice
TyKyVi (Cardinals) at 1/26/2020 5:28 PM: I was trying to win now but also set things up for a few seasons. Had to sacrifice that '68 Gibby but I think I will be better in the long run. But in all honesty , who knows , lol
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/26/2020 4:44 PM: squads.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/26/2020 4:42 PM: Cards is your plan to win a Ring the 3rd Season of this League? It seems like all your teams with maybe the exception of the 2004 squad are 2 years ahead of some talented squada and Hornsby would be using his 24 or 25 season if you were going all out right now.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/26/2020 4:37 PM: Dump these 1914 guys when they go downhill and pick up the earlier versions of them would seem to be the correct technique,I would think.
Warrior (Nationals) at 1/26/2020 4:35 PM: Red Sox you have Ruth now as a pitcher but based on what I am hearing you will keep him and have him for all his good hitting seasons as well. Plus not only will you have Leonard now but when he goes downhill you could acquire him again as the 1907 version of your total team advances in time. Of course I have not been in any of Dukes Leagues like this but that certainly seems to be the way this works.
Goodfella (Yankees) at 1/26/2020 4:11 PM: My best team.is in the minors till nex..
