So the new file went up last night but I just was able to extract reports now...  working on statslab and getting draft set up today.

Been a bit busy, will try to finish this in the morning.  Sorry for the delay.

Thank you for your patience....  I've processed the most recent trade and am finally setting up the draft now.  I am scheduling the completion of the draft for Tuesday, April 2nd.  As usual, we will get a head start on the draft in statslab as soon as I'm done setting it up.

Okay, we are ready to begin drafting.  Virginia is up with the 2nd pick.

Virginia took SP Morris Flores. Washington is on auto (and took 2B Will Dodson), so we're up to Nova Scotia.

OK, I've caught the 2-way player bug. http://npblbaseball.com/npbl/reports/news/html/players/player_3922.html was my experiment I started last year, and got it figured out a bit better this season. He platoons at 1B as well as pitches out of the bullpen. So far, performing better as a RP than a 1B...but still promising. 

At the plate: 
72 AB, 17 H, 11 2B, 2 HR, 6 RBI, 8BB, 16 K, .236/.337/.472
On the mound:
5 G 5IP 5 HA 1 ER 2 BB 3 D 1.80 ERA 1.40 WHIP 2 SVs

or not, if they'd rather not talk about it...

Just a note to let everyone know I'll be out of the country for the next 2 weeks so won't be able to export. Will keep an eye on things via web reports and will post any sim instructions if needed. Thanks!

Sorry about the late sim again.  Stanley Cup Playoffs have been kicking my butt, but we swept the Islanders so now I've got a little time to rest.

Sim ended early because of All-Star voting, which is another thing I've overlooked.  Let me see if I can get statslab updated so we can vote.

File and reports are updated.
Title: Re: The Official 2079 Discussion Thread

I'll get the All-Star voting up Monday AM, sorry for all the delays guys.
Title: Re: The Official 2079 Discussion Thread
Post by: Chappy on May 06, 2019, 05:24:29 AM
Hey guys, I think to avoid a long delay we will vote for all-stars in-game this year.

Open up the game and find 'all-star voting' in the main NPBL drop-down menu.  After you fill out the form, click on submit ballot.

We'll resume everything Wednesday.

Thanks for your patience!

Im still flabbergasted that after moving a number of pieces, we ended up tied for the 2nd best record in the league. We'll still flame out as usual, but it was a crazy ride.

P.S. I still don't get why more people aren't trading for my dudes

3-4-5 are up!

Patriots were down 3 games to 0 and behind 3-2 in Game 4.  In the ninth inning, we rallied for 2 runs to stay alive.  It was all started by pinch hitting Mark Stokes who didn't start due to back spasms, and subsequently re-injured his back on the basepaths.

This will either be a nice story or something to be forgotten depending on whether or not the Patriots can win both of the games in Boston to complete the reverse-sweep.

Florida lost 9 straight, 7 to end the season, and then the first 2 in the wild card series. Then we won 6 straight, and now have lost 2 in a row. It's been a hell of a roller coaster for the Bluefish. Good luck tomorrow, lord only knows which Florida team will show up...

Thanks. My offense woke up - I have pitching that can rival anyone's, but the batters often leave Martin Hernandez to do all the damage. If I can keep getting contributions from others I have a shot.

I didn't feel this team was nearly as strong as last year's version, especially with Del Gibson on the injured list. However, they dug deep and found a way. Pretty special to go back-to-back - feels good!  :D
