yeah, it also goes back further than 1885 right?
Yeah - back to 1871
(that sound you hear is Pointy thinking about what that might mean for Old Hoss)
Would it be possible to shift entirely into a beat reporter role
But taking Addie as my colleague b/c he will never play for dp. Ever.
Oh wow. 1871 + the Negro League are massive game changers.
And also my two for-sure keepers (Ruth and Hornsby) might be oil and water.
Okay... I suggest this knowing full well that it'll piss off the GMs that have extra keeper slots and also that deeps won't be penalized for his shenanigans... but this being so, so different (and likely much better) from what we're currently doing, maybe we should do a full re-draft and start the keepers after next season.
Anustart, if you will.
No. I will watch Shane Spencer play like Shane Spencer. I will watch it and smile.
as someone with 5 keeper slots i just want to say that i'd actually be fine with starting the keepers after next season if that's what the majority of gm's prefer.
I do think you should get those 5 rolled over to Season 5... seems fair.
Look I don't want to be a negative nancy but the ball hadn't even been invented in 1871. They were using turnips. Most of them were missing body parts from the war. If you had all of your legs you were an all-star.
I am 100% in favor of keeping the keepers as intended from this season.
Junking it would be an unfair punishment to Pointy, who gets nothing of value for giving up on Pete Alexander
There are potentially others who made similar decisions just not as obvious
Everyone has the option to change years on their keepers
I'm planning on doing a "what could have been" for rosters from a snapshot during this season to show everyone how their players would have performed in the new sim
I'm happy to introduce a "keeper buy back" opportunity should a GM want to not utilize their keeper slot
It's ****ing cool to carryover something from season to season besides tom's team's name and Pointy winning
keeping the keepers is my preference as well, just wanted to say that i would go the other way if everyone else felt strongly about it.
Yeah I definitely want to keep people
I was all in already and now I am more...inner...
To be clear, I'm cool with keeping keepers as well. I'm more than satisfied with my trio, even if the third one is kinda up in the air now. I just thought I'd suggest it given how many more things there are to consider when building a team now.
I'm keeping Shane Spencer, Joba Chamberlain, and Howard the Duck!
I don't want to do more work.
I'm putting this in stone and charging him Intybucks if he wants to change
Yeah I want my keepers. Made the trade so I could keep all four of Bonds, A-Rod, Old Hoss and Trout.
yes to keepers. mantle will win an mvp for the bandwagoners before i die and/or forget about the jcc.
I'd say that settles that. Cool beans.
I actually wouldn't mind no keepers, but then I would be on the hook for some kind of compensation for PG, whatever that might be.
I would absolutely love a co-host and with all the updates we can provide, it would warrant it
And, I mean, like ... the rules don't prevent a GM from taking a keeper and not playing next year. So, you could theoretically remove Joss, Ted Williams, and Sean Casey from the game until your triumphant return. I think.
Alright, so I promised you all some previews of how players/teams do in the new sim. Some caveats:
1) The new sim requires a 40-man roster due to injuries, etc. They create fake players. I went through and made sure opening day rosters had no fake players, but I can't guarantee that going forward.
2) the rosters are built from a snapshot of what rosters looked like at some point in the season, not at season end. I had to play around with the new sim to figure out how to batch import so I didn't have to manually add every player. There are errors, but this should be directionally accurate.
3) I'll wait to sim more to see if anyone wants to see more info.
4) Just ... ignore player pictures. Some are bad and some are really, really, bad
Here are some excerpts, about one month into the season:
Basic Batting Leaders:
Basic Pitching Leaders:
WAR for position players:
I love that only Amazings look Amazing in the fake sim...
Also, what is the new sim and how do we view players in it?
I'm using Out of the Park 21
And I'm not sure what you mean by view players
He means scouting, I'm guessing.
