Sim's Done! Also, a note about DFA players.

Game Date:  Mar 7 2033

Significant Injuries:
Appalachian SP Chad Harrison, hamstring sprain, 4-5 weeks
Brick CF Alejandro Garcia, plantar fascitis, 3 weeks
Houston SP Roger Lorton, shoulder inflammation, 8 weeks.

Note regarding players Designated for Assignment:

I know that we have a number of new owners this season, so I should make clear what my policy is when running the sim and I find a player who is out of DFA time.

When this happens, the sim cannot proceed until the player is moved off of the DFA list.   I do not want to hold up the sim, so this is the process that I follow:

1. If there is a spot open on the major league roster, that's where I put him. 
2.  If the major league roster is full, I try to put him in the highest minor league with available room and where he will be allowed given roster age limits. 
3.  If there is no available place for him or he will not accept assignment to the minors, then he gets released.

Of course, you can always reach out to Michael and myself on Slack and let us know what you want done with him when his DFA time is done.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Next sim:  Sunday night.

Welcome to Spring Training!

Game Date: February 28th, 2033


  • Antelope Valley signed OF John Willis (Philadelphia) - $3.55m/1year
  • Appalachian signed RP Don Clancey (international) - $550k/1year
News: Spring Training is finally here! Time to fight those roster battles and take a look at your top prospects. Rosters are expanded to 60 and starters will only go 4 innings, so pack those rosters.

We will be sticking to the three-sims-a-week schedule (Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday) during the five sims of Spring Training. 

Also, I created a #vacation channel in Slack to post when you will be away and unable to upload. Once the regular season starts, Zev and I will be tracking who uploads in order to be awarded as per our approval of the Incentives suggestion made. If you will be unable to upload due to travel, vacation, or some other reason, you must post in that channel in order to get credit for that sim.

Next sim: The first week of spring training games will be simmed on Thursday night, 11/29/2018.

Sim's Done!

Game Date: February 14, 2032

Signings: No major league signings this sim.

Administrivia: We have a full league again. Please welcome Aaron as the new owner of the former Seattle Monarchs (presently Barrow Polar Bears, and future name TBA). Ignore the message about someone else assuming that team -- I screwed something up when creating Aaron's profile (blame the turkey dinner I'm still digesting!).

Next Sim: Sunday November 25th. We are just two sims away from Spring Training (which should start next Thursday night, in one week)!
