I sim every game. I do begin a game as the manager, so that I can amend the lineup and defensive positions if I don't like what my depth charts give me or take out a guy with a day-to-day injury. But then I switch full control to the CPU and sim the game. I sim on quickplay an inning at a time, so that I can get through the game in a few seconds but can see the flow and progress of the game. Occasionally I may briefly take back managerial control in the late innings to change defensive positions if the CPU puts a replacement in a silly place, but switch back to CPU before continuing to sim.

That's my personal preference for how to play for two reasons. First, I don't have much time to play, and if I played out games it'd take me an age to complete a single season. Second, I'm terrible at managing, and it's definitely more harmful to the team for me to manage than leaving it to the CPU.
After reading these I may do my own. I'm going to sim from 1901 to 1949 and take over the worst team just prior to the draft. Haven't decided if I will start with a fantasy draft of historical players or fictional. To advance some years I am going to try doing sims in your manner. I play out games now and have let the CPU run in the past but have been frustrated with the way it handles the bullpen, I do always check the lineup, when its time for a rest day for a player some of the CPU's batting orders don't make much sense

Thanks again for sharing this.

30 Sep - 4 Oct 2042 - division series vs Manchester Falcons (94-68)

We finished on identical records in the regular season, and the Falcons edged it 5-4 in our head-to-heads. It all points to a close series and a battle of our quality pitching against their stellar batting lineup.

MAN 2 LEE 0: McGinnity 8.0 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K. Mitchell 2-4, DBL. McGinnity gave a typically great performance, and we actually out-hit the Falcons 7-6. But we just couldn't string our hits together, and RBI singles in the 3rd and 8th innings were enough for the Mancunians. [0-1]

MAN 4 LEE 1: Magana 2-3, BB, SB. Fuentes 2-4. Chris Kemp got popped for 3 runs in the top of the 1st, and the writing was on the wall. We've kept the Falcons offense fairly quiet so far but our offense just hasn't shown up. [0-2]

LEE 7 MAN 6: García 2-5, HR, BB. Hayashi 2-5, HR. Absolutely incredible. Emanuel Namora was on the mound for the Falcons, and the omens weren't good when they went 5-2 ahead in the bottom of the 5th. It looked all over as the score remained that way entering the top of the 9th. But Hayashi hit a 2-run homer as we tied the game at 5-5. Jim Mullins homered in the top of the 13th as we went 7-5 in front. The Falcons briefly threatened a comeback of their own, scoring a run on a sac fly, but Isidoro Fortini saw it out to keep us alive. [1-2]

LEE 5 MAN 6: González 7.0 IP, 6 H, 3 ER. Magana 2-4, DBL. McGinnity was only 89% fit so I decided to go with my lefty González to try and negate the Falcons's lethal lefty hitters. It looked like a good decision as we took a 4-1 lead into the 7th. But it's hard to keep future Hall of Famer Bobby Fields and co down, and they overhauled us with 2 runs apiece in the 7th and 8th. We tied it up in the 9th, only to lose the game and get eliminated thanks to an unearned run in the bottom of the inning. [1-3]

So for the fourth time in five postseason appearances, we've fallen at the division series. What a disappointment. But there is nothing for it but to go again next season.

Manchester will get the chance to win their 10th Northern League championship pennant. They don't yet know who they'll play, with Leicester and Stoke tied at 2-2.

Manchester will play Southampton in the 2042 EBA Cup Final series. They both prevailed 4-1 in their championship series against Leicester and Essex respectively. It's a repeat of the 2018 Cup Final series when Southampton won to clinch their only EBA title to date. For the Falcons, they've got that 10th NL crown (Derby are way back in 2nd place in the all-time list with 3 NL pennants) and a chance to win their 5th overall title.

The Southampton Titanics are the EBA champions for 2042. They won 4-2 against the Falcons for their second EBA title. It's a bitter defeat for the Falcons, who have now lost 5 of their last 6 appearances in the Cup Final series.
