Inaugural Draft Results: Mario Padilla

Posted 01-16-2015 at 01:15 PM by absurddoctor

Our third pick (39th overall) went to lefty starting pitcher Mario Padilla.



He is currently ranked number one amongst starting pitchers this season. It looks like the first inaugural draft gave him a long-term contract with his previous team, as his history doesn't indicate any extensions or other contract news. He was supposed to receive $28 million this year; instead he has ended up with $11 million from us, with another...

Inaugural Draft Results: Frank Gaskill

Our second pick (34th overall) went to a prospect named Frank Gaskill.

For starting pitching I would always hope to get lucky in the draft or with international free agents, home-growing them and letting them go when they got expensive. In OOTP 14 it always seemed like there was tons of cheap bull-pen options around as free agents,...

Absurd Baseball League

Posted 01-16-2015 at 11:41 AM by absurddoctor

Traveling by train from Boston to New York in November, I decided to quit pretending to work and start up a small league where I would play out a lot of the games. I've had a tendency to sim my way through most leagues, as I end up in a hurry to see how the players and teams evolve. Thus, the Absurd Baseball League was born.



The careful observer will notice that the save file is 'FictinalToLast'. The free beer I was taking...
