• 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 2084

Nasty Naz still not in the hall, which is a bunch of bullshit, because he was robbed of like 8 all star appearances and WIZARD awards because he played in the same era as a Juicer...

Plus, the VETERNONS committee was stolen by HAVES anyway who don't even know the name of a RETURN OF THE MACK BonHOMME or a FRED! @ZackMills

GLOVE WIZARD FOR A DECADE! Also, a RHB playing his entire career in the Sphere? You can add .100 to them numbers! He was the real secret to all of my glorious low ERA BUM PITCHERS!

I can help out too. @TonyGin&Juice has first dibs as I've been sponsoring him for a few seasons but if he doesn't need it, someone else gets my extra key.
I buy from Steam, but I guess if I also buy from OOTP, I could help 2 people? I’ve never bought from them, but if they give out two keys, that’s three poors/new joins that can upgrade with us.

I can't remember who said it, but a load of the problem with pitching in this league is exploding players. The only ones of any use are durable. I have had a lot of 'normal' rated pitchers become wheelchair cases before hitting the majors. The fragile ones you can forget. I think it's the same for everybody, and it's stupidly overcooked.

THANK YOU Dermott McHeshi
I think it has to do with feeder leagues in 3 ways:

1. Feeder leagues add in injuries. IRL if you're a pitching who gets hurt before going pro, your chances of succeeding go down dramatically. The game is based off of REEL life trends/stats.

2. In relation to above, if you get hurt young... the odds you get hurt again are really high.

3. I think in the 'old' generated player system, you had COL/HS guys who threw maybe 100 IP in one year. Now you've got guys like bin Fatin who I took 6th overall who did 4 straight years of 100+ IP. I'm sure there are similar guys who put on miles in HS. I think career IP is cooked into the game DNA in terms of injury risk AND skill deterioration. I've seen tons of Indy/Intl FA SP who go strong into their mid 30s with no noticeable loss of skill because the game reads them as entering the WBL with 0 IP.

Minor aside: I always IL day-to-day minors injuries but guys might pick one up on Monday then make it worse in their next start/appearance. You CAN edit if someone plays through a d2d injury it just takes a while.
