Pirates Win the Series!

Marty Pattin got the win in 2 of Pittsburgh's 4 wins.The Pittsburgh Pirates are the 1976 World Champions. The Pirates prevailed over the Minnesota Twins in 5 games to win the series. Pirates pitching was on full display in this one, only giving up 6 runs in the series. In fact, if you take out the game the Twins won, Pittsburgh only gave up 1 run in the other 4 games.

Willie Stargell lead the way offensively for the Pirates with 8 hits, a .421 batting average, and 4 RBI in the series. Kent Tekulve was a "difference maker," as the Pirates manager put it after the series win. Tekulve saved all 4 wins. In the final vote among sports writers, Marty Pattin was given the World Series MVP award. Pattin won both of his 2 starts (games 1 and 5 of the series). Pattin was masterful, pitching 14 scoreless innings in total.

If I might say, the locker room had somewhat of a "family" feel after the series win. Something to keep an eye on... Congratulations Pittsburgh!

1/17/201985 innings and under franchise leagueTrulaia
I am writing here in defense of myself and others who have figured out a way to have 2014 Jose Fernandez, 2015 Josh Tomlin, 2018 shohei ohtani and others to be used as starters.

First of all it's not like we have hacked the website or anything nefarious. I do agree that everyone should have the knowledge to use these players as starters.

However I'm getting tired of the negative feedback because these players are being used as starters. Tomlin started 10 games and has TWO COMPLETE GAMES. Why should he be a reliever? Shohei ohtani is an exciting new starter in the league and we want to simulate the season as if he were a reliever? So yes, people, including myself found the loop hole to make them a starter. However the are SUPPOSED to be starters. They definitely should have a very low pitch count, but I'll be damned if anyone can make the case that any of these types of guys should be relievers. Its NOT REALISTIC...and this game is supposed to simulate REALITY.

So please stop chastising those that know the loop hole. Here it is:

Draft a franchise team, then save it to be used later, the import that same team and those guys now qualify as starters. Its realistic and everyone should be able to do this.
