Don't use games against me as a barometer, occasionally my guys play like they want to win, like Ortega's complete game shutout yesterday. The rest of the time my team has fallen to league punching bag. It is interesting, because I try to adjust my pitching to do what I can to exploit poor LH or RH lineups, but then my pitcher and defense still stink. I think my guys are trying to ensure no one on other teams get fired for being bad.

Edit: As for my last post it was an H-bomb detonation, but I tried three different images without any of them properly linking.

Another huge series tonight. WPB versus New York. Lets see if Harrisonburg can capitalize versus the so called "league punching bag".

My pitching rotation....I don't know who to start. Patton, Pappalardo, Downing, Olsen, Lujan, Booth, Foley, or Escobedo? All can be legit starters, all are inconsistent.

Edit; My retarded bullpen just blew another lead. This is ridiculous.

Come on PW, you're complaining about your bullpen blowing a 7-6 lead when my pitching staff first blew 5-0 and 6-4 leads? You wouldn't have even had a lead if my staff didn't stink. :P

Edit: Game 3 on the other hand, does prove your point, that was on your pitching staff. My guys erased a six run deficit.

.252/.298/.465/.764. With 11 bombs in 200 innings and .988 fielding.

Not bad for an aging backup LL3 3B.

But I cut him too after that... 😉

I would love to hear your input.

My team has over 10 game lead in division. A little premature, but soon I want to give young guys playing time. This season I have 4 pitchers at AAA (and their season already finished) with recommendations for Majors. Can I send down veterans to AAA to fill roster spots with these AAA guys? Does it effect the veterans? I have been making lots of $$ and have $71m war chest, so bumping their salary isn't much of a concern. One will reach the majors next season anyways.

I also have another player only recently called up to AAA, but is a little behind (24yo and at 87 SI 12 POT). He doesn't have the recommendation for Majors yet, but will calling him up early freak out his development and stunt him?

He already got called up last season by previous team for 18 games and so is $0.5m already and maybe already freaked out.

Any advise?

I usually leave guys like that down just to try and maximize their AAA time. But might be ok if you plan to leave him AAA all next year anyhow.

I knew it. I could have put money on last night's series against WPB turning out like it did. Took 2 of 3 from Raleigh, 3 of 4 from Harrisonburg, second best RD in the League...but I did of course mention that WPB appeared to be running out of steam.

Fate duly tempted, we managed to score just 7 runs in four games, and 5 of those came in our only win. We're now just 4-10 against the Spartans this season, just seem to have our number. Of course, our RD in those games is just -2, as they've won all the close ones. SIX have been one-run losses.

General training goes across your entire team no matter what. You can give your team extra training in two areas if you'd like. Simply go to the training tab and select your two choices. You can't give specific training to an individual; the focus goes to the entire team.
