When I checked at the 15-game mark I had already been shutout 4 times, no-hit, had 2 maddux's thrown against me, had a cycle against me, a 3-HR game against me, and 3 different players had 5 hits on me.

I have a whopping .264 winning percentage.
I have no other team above .500. So it's a rough early season, and I even spent a good amount of time researching my ballpark factors to maximize my hitting, and I obviously picked wrong or just got ridiculously unlucky by playing tons of teams with similar lineups...

13-6, 10-10, and 11-8 starts for my teams so far (in signature order lol)

Very happy with that, and Hank Aaron, along with Albert Belle, have added the cherry on top of a PotW week award for my All-NL and All-AL teams respectively

Early stats show my team-building going in roughly the right direction, though it is very early.

After experiencing a 2nd half collapse in Season 8 (although that had to come full circle as Season 6 I backdoored into the playoff picture while on vacation), Mudcats Nashville has yet to win a Playoff Series (lost Iron Division Series 3-2 and lost two Bronze Wild Card Games), we finally have a decent first baseman.

Newcomers:
1B Miguel Cabrera (Silver All-Star)
RH Darren O'Day (Gold LIVE)

The fifth starter seemed to be locked down with Collin McHugh's move from middle relief to rotation but after the update, he may be bullpen or reserve bound.

Please give me an update on him late in the week. I am curious about how he does for you. Good luck!

Good news is I actually started 15-8, bad news is I'm only third in my division and even if I keep this up I'm probably just competing for the second wild card spot. A cursory look seems to suggest that there are 4 true "whales" in the league and 2 are in my division. And I've just lost the first of a 6 game home stretch against those 2 teams.

Rebels remain in freefall mode in bronze, 8-18 to start the season. That's going so well… I just popped them Padres catcher of old, Terry Kennedy, from a pack, and that was the best pull of the last week or so...

The Raccoons are still middle of the road in diamond, 15-11. Neither the offense nor the pitching is really roaring.

But at least Rico Carty won Batter of the Month in his first month on the job. Guy batted .330 with six homers in April.

So far after a slow start yesterday, the Teatotallers are at 12-14....that's not half bad considering last week.
I've also found the next two cards I'll target for hitters. One I had totally forgotten about till I saw on the AH today, and I'm incredibly sad I don't have the PP for it.


Bakery is off to a strong start in Diamond having added 91?2? Phil Niekro to the Braves rotation. Bullpen will be the downfall here at this point if success isn't sustained.

The Gashouse Gorillas are raking to lead their division. I added two new gold pitchers in Wilbur Wood and Greinke and so far that may be what finally pushes them out of silver league.

Day 1 Monday is all about disregarding the unusual aberration that works for or against you and moving on. Yesterday my team, which has excellent defenders at every position except right field, committed 20 errors in 28 games and accounted for a whopping 17 unearned runs and multiple losses. No worries at 12-16. It will smooth out, we'll see if the pitching can come together with better defense.

After last season's title Doha opened the new one playing very well (21-7) and leading the division. The team has been intact for 5 or 6 seasons now and it's a very well oiled machine.
There are no possible upgrades in sight that I can think of, except for the ultra expensive pitchers; unless I pull one from a pack, this team will stay the course for a long time.

Great Lake is leading the division at 17-12 and the playoffs are a reasonable goal but that is probably as far as we can go as there is a super team in our conference that is currently standing at 26-3, with 2 more in the other conference at 23-6 and 25-5 respectively (good luck Orcin).
Great Lake is an extreme team with an all-righty lineup playing in a matching park that is not suffering as much playing on the road.
Every year I think about upgrading 88 Clemente and 91 Frank Robinson to better versions, only for them to still play extremely well, making me wonder if it's really worth the cost.

Perugia is playing very well yet again,leading the division at 20-10.
I changed the ballpark this year, going from a "Gap and Avg" park to a new one with every value reduced to the minimum except for Avg. that is maxed out; the idea is to live or die by the "single".

I have discovered that selling your two best pitchers and sitting on 350,000 points is not a good strategy. However, it probably would not have mattered.

My competitors have 4-5 million points on their 25-man rosters, and no amount of strategy and micro-management will win against that level of talent. I am 0-for-May, but I am probably not in danger of being relegated because there are still teams with single-digit win totals. I am going through a brutal stretch of games against the top teams right now, facing perfect Young, Schilling, Pedro, Johnson, etc. every day. I am sure that things will turn around when I start playing the weaker teams, but it's hard to see that blue sky to come when you are in the middle of the tornado.

I got bored this weekend and decided to stand-up a third theme team. Actually the team is F2P, it's just all Live and Future Legend players age 24 and younger.

Was more hinting at my Cooper Gutter Cats.

Good start to the season, going 31-16. Bound to get a little worse as the next series is on the road against Rixey, K. Brown and perfect Cy Young.

Team has 2nd best ERA coupled with 2nd worst HR totals, but super low HR totals are expected. Top ERA in the league belongs to the team upcoming for the next 3 games, Fresno Team Loser.

A jinx incoming for sure, but here's a Sutton update. 5-2 with a 1.56 ERA, no wins in his last 2 starts, where both games ended in 1-0 final scores. Gave up 5 runs in his second start and has been hot since.

92 DH Pete Rose however, has been cold for a good part of the season sitting at .244 with 1 HR and 15 RBI.

The Frogs are not doing terribly so far in P411 at 27-25 and 2.5 games out of the wild card. The pythag is a little bit less positive at 25-27.

There is a handful of whale-ish teams in either league with loaded starting pitching/historical perfect cards that this team will likely never seriously compete with, but there is a non-zero percent chance of obtaining the 2nd wild card spot. Defense (2nd EFF, 4th ZR, 4th errors), bullpen (2nd), base running (4th), and contact (5th) have been keeping this team afloat so far.

Okay. I'm despairing. I know the Rebels' D overall is not all that great, but they are absolutely bottomless. Just look at those BABIP and the starters' ERA. This does not include Jarrod Parker, who got yanked with an 8.10 ERA. Anybody spot something obvious, like I'm having a lefty catch and the guy in the wheelchair play short? Because I got nothing.

Heeeelp…

The Coons are first in their diamond division, but only by 1 1/2 games, and the collapse always comes. Big Walt is not gonna win a triple crown this year, as he's soul-searching with a 5-4 record and 3.43 ERA. His BABIP is also up merely 65 points. That team is 22nd in DEF EFF (Rebels: 37th! ...behind five sets of groundskeepers and St. Agnes' girls' choir!) despite being built all around defense.

I can't do anything right.

Also bought up a few iron Unsung Heroes in the low 100's. I think I found my limit.

Edit: Also, first time I pulled a double that was not some 41 schmuck.

The Fighting Frogs... I thought that team name sounded familiar! Greetings from the Raccoons!

The Raccoons are off to another great start at 37-16. Since I'm no longer spending money on this team, they'll likely only ever get one or two upgrades in the future (well, unless we get some from tournaments) and that will come mostly from selling off players on my reserve roster. So I'm hoping we'll win a championship before the top teams get even tougher.

I haven't been feeling well so I didn't log in until a little while ago and I just noticed that my changes Sunday night didn't take so I've been going with a 4 man starting rotation. Hmm... That would partly explain why the top 4 pitchers in Ws in the NC are my 4 SPs.

What's interesting is our SP ERA is 2.68, which is best in the conference. I think I'll go back to a 5 man rotation, because my SPs are generally better than my bullpen (including my #5 SP) so it seems best to change things back, but I'm still surprised that the only obviously negative consequence of a 4-man rotation, was increased bullpen usage due to the SPs tiring sooner.

Edit: I didn't realize it also didn't put my reserve C on the roster (it had said my changes were successful). So Campanella has started every game at C and is hitting .212. Ugh!

Edit: Also, first time I pulled a double that was not some 41 schmuck.

For starters, how about getting someone like Simmons for under 2k for SS, for example?

For 3B (and as a backup to 2B or SS or even a starter), Chone Figgins is pretty cheap (under 800 PP). I've added a screenshot showing his numbers. [He only comes trained at 3B, by the way.] Also, Figgins will train to a 106 at 2B so he's also an option there (and he'll train to a 92 at SS).

How much can you afford? For 2B, I'd go for a SS and train him at 2B. Someone like Rizzuto, Appling or Pesky. But I think they're all in the 10k range. But they have 70+ contact and good eye and elite defense at 2B (100+). Obviously, you can also train some SS at 3B and upgrade there with a SS, though you may sacrifice too much offense in the process (though not compared to what you have now).

Richie Ashburn is a nice and not too expensive CF. He's got a 93 rating at CF and his contact is 83 and his avg bid is <4k.

Edit: I just noticed you have only 555 PP at the moment so I'd at least consider Simmons, Figgins and Ashburn once you save up enough.
