    BTTF 2018: MLB123746

    I guess that means we won't be doing a 2019 season either

    OK, so here's the league number. MLB123746 For AAA, I think you should be able to pick any player over about 700k. If you have someone less than that, put them on your 25-man roster and put someone else in AAA. I think this is the best it's going to get. Parks are above. I guess HTP never picked one? Or it never got noted in the Google Sheet?

    OK, got slammed at work, but give me till this afternoon and I think I'll have it. The AAA thing is super annoying since there's no "make everyone eligible" option, but let me see what I can do.

    Players are actually in! Want me to set up the leeg? Or is someone else doing it?

    2018 players should be entered tomorrow. Of course I've heard that before. But I'm hoping we can still get this thing launched if it happens.

    My 2017 team, which I think lost the World Series, just started their Tournament of Champions. Which they'll probably get bounced out of in the first round. That team really doesn't seem all that good. Should give hope to all the mediocre teams for 2018.

    The WIS forum people are saying it might be a couple months before they add the 2018 players. Boo.

    I'm hoping that WIS will actually add the MLB players next week. They were pretty good about doing it last year. I've got tons of depth hitters to trade if anyone needs ABs. Nick Ahmed slugged .411 and can be someone's full-time shortstop. (Ignore that .290 OBP... doesn't matter!) Wilmer Difo and Neil Walker also got almost 400 PAs each and can play multiple positions. Probably some mediocre RPs available to trade as well. All I really need/want is competent catchers and upgrades for my existing guys.

    Min. 40 pitches for your starter, so, sadly, no. WIS is still in the 80s. On the other hand, if you can get a good enough bullpen, having your starters go 40-50 pitches might work out well in this format.

    You can do up to 4 sets of tandems. The biggest issue you'll have is that you can't set a pitch count lower than 40. 40 pitches * 41 games = 1600 pitches, which is 100-110 innings. So you'd have guys getting worn out a bit too often to stick with the same 4 tandems all season. You'd had to rotate them in and out. Then you run into issues where you can only carry 13 pitchers, so if you have 8 starters, you've only got 5 relievers. Keller is a good candidate for a tandem though given his low IP/G. Pomeranz probably isn't worth the effort. So you could probably go 1 - Harvey 2 - Stroman 3 -McCullers 4- tandem Keller and Sanchez Then every once in a while sub in Anderson for 1 of the top 3. The top 3 will only give you maybe 3-4 innings, but your bullpen gets a little rest on the Keller/Sanchez day.
  12. Parking by the arena can be rough - people do park there for work. But by afternoon enough people should have left that you can get in. I'm sure the lots at Duquesne won't be full since school is mostly out for summer. There must be a nice beer store in Cranberry or Wexford that you could hit on your way out, but I don't know of any.
  13. Food is good. Occasionally great. Beer is very good, occasionally great. Best experience is probably just to stop by for a couple beers and some kind of snack.
  14. The Pirates seem like they're falling pretty far down the list of teams with bright futures. Other than Mitch Keller, what do they have on the farm? Polanco can't live up to the hype, Marte is already almost 30, Taillon can't seem to take the next step, the rest of the SPs are meh... how are these guys going to be good now OR down the road?

    The Americans

    Just wanted to say, I finally read this review... I don't read a ton of TV reviews, but I read a couple shows' worth at any given time, and this might be the best recap of a show I've ever read.
