Inaugural Draft Results: Mario Padilla

Posted 01-16-2015 at 01:15 PM by absurddoctor
Updated 01-16-2015 at 01:22 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.

In his rookie draft he went to the 9th pick in the first round. While I tend to think of third base as a position for power-hitters, he look like a good potential lead-off or number two hitter. His stats are almost good enough to consider bringing up already, but with that much potential left to fill I'm hoping he can continue cooking in AAA for the rest...

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...

1940s replay, morphs into a Ted Williams years replay

Posted 09-29-2014 at 07:09 PM by Okay

I decided on a replay of the 1940s, because I was interested in the war years. In 1943 there were less than a 1000 homers for the first time in two decades. So I have TWO main replay ideas. First, an historical line up replay.

Then, as I played my first game of 1940, Boston at Washington, I noticed (was reminded) that Williams was a rookie in 1939, so why not start over in 1939. Then the idea came, why not do as historic a replay as possible without players, including Williams, missing...

Curt Schilling: "There is no comparison to any sports sim I've ever played."

Posted 01-28-2014 at 07:18 PM by BradC

"I was, quite honestly, born into the game," says Curt Schilling, who pitched for the Orioles, Astros, Phillies, Diamondbacks, and Red Sox during a 20-year career. "I was told my dad had a ball and glove in my crib when I came home from the hospital. I've lived and breathed it since I can remember. I grew up in Arizona so I could be on the field 365 days a year."

He continues: "When I wasn't on the field, I was doing something associated with the game. I first...
