• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

It’s 2083

Welcome to the Bigs Dumitru "Snake Eyes" Burinca! Acquired him in the trade with @doh where I received the cheng hao-lu cum dump. He was a 65/50/45 potential guy when i traded for him. He has reached 75/50/50 potential now. His current ratings have him at 65/50/50 with only 5-10 pts to gain on two of his pitches....all 3 pitches being 70+. Hes also "Durable" and a "Captain". Hopefully......hes good enough.
 
I am the dumbest motherfucker alive for non-tendering that guy instead of paying him $14M in ARB.
hes quite the damn story, tbh. Had an ok but nothing spectacular career in Miami from 2071-2076...nontendered by you because he only had two seasons worthy of being a starter(especially for that kind of money). Karl signs him in the 2076-2077 offseason to a minor league deal. He spends the next 3+ seasons in AAA, getting 8 starts for Seoul(and pitching poorly) in 2080. 2081 he makes the opening day roster and has possibly the best season of his career. 2082 he backs it up with another solid season and so far in 2083, at 35 years old, hes pitching well for me.

Somewhat. Looks like his ratings with Miami were 65/55/60. His stuff dropped, but his control got better to the point he was/is 55/55/65. Seoul is no doubt a better team than Miami was during his time there...so im sure that helped. Will be interesting to see what happens over his remaining time in kabul
He's definitely someone who needs a good defense behind him to be effective.

That's 2/3 of a nice outfield going forward. I like Ahlstad because of that higher eye. He won't just be hacking at the ball like a lot of glove-first guys. Cisneros could be a top-3 RF, too.

I like Ahlstad a lot. He seems to have more power than his ratings suggest. He is getting his chance because Leonard got hurt and Segard seems to be an underperformer so far. Ahlstad will probably stick because he can play so many positions. Segard is just as good in CF and Leonard has been a solid 2 WAR WBL player thus far, so we will see how it all pans out. Good to have options though.

I'm slotting Cisneros in at LF for now, but he will be great in either corner and even passable in CF. Wallin is a liability, but he is a Swede and has elite error and arm ratings which make him passable despite the lower range. Not sure if LF or RF is the better place to hide him.

I'm excited for Nunez since i just drafted him. He is fragile and was performing well in AA, so i figured if you are going to get injured it might as well be in the WBL.

That utility guy could play every position on the field at an elite level, short of 3B and C
Yeah I have spent time training him at all these positions. He basically only had CF coming out of college. He has seemed to pick all of them up very quickly which is interesting. He's put in less than 100 games at each position sans CF. He became elite at 2B in like 20 games.

SSS, but it doesn’t seem like Cisneros is ready. It was probably early to bring him up, but his stats had been solid. Ahlstad is also not hitting well, but I didn’t expect much with the bat. Wailin had been killin it, but he just got a 6 week injury. Not sure if I should/can send down Cisneros now. Nunez is doing just fine.
 
Yong, miller and alfaro carrying the offense? Els coming alive? Burinca pitching well in his first two starts against playoff teams? Karabekir leading all rookie starters in K/BB? My top prospects all playing well in the minors? Still in 4th place?

I pulled up Eyre last year and it looks like it was too early. But he’s the best CF glove solution..

Ok. So after experimenting, an extremely positive outcome has happened. Faysal Bin Isra'il is the starting pitcher @Yankee151 said he was before the 2081 draft. I switched him there out of desperation and he's much happier, putting up good numbers against decent teams. He's also popular with the fans (which might have been another indicator of his SP potential).

My schedule has now opened up since I steadied the ship after injuries and had a continuous run against the hardest teams in the WBL. Still managed to go 6-4 in the last 10 and split series with LV and ND. Paris should now go on to crush all the pathetic opposition over the next few weeks with maybe the exception of Dublin.

Nope. The rubberband snaps and you start shitting the bed.
