Wow, this is the first I noticed that Castillanos scored 150 times and nearly walked 150 times.

Tied for 3rd-most single-season runs ever, in the GEL.

Reds outfielder Joop de Beers misses the Horizon award by having 14 at-bats too many, heading into 2035.

Seven years of MVP trophies in a row, for Rhode Island catcher Glenn Steger.

The superstar led the Reds in batting average, on-base, slugging, OPS, home runs, RBI, walks, total bases, runs created, runs created per game, and VORP.

He was elected to his seventh straight NPBL All-star Game.

Among FFL batters, he ranked:
no. 2 in batting average (.341)
no. 6 in RBI (121)
no. 5 in OBP (.411)
no. 9 in slugging (.547)
no. 7 in OPS (.958)
no. 5 in RC/27 (9.14)
no. 5 in VORP (76.7)

Trading Market / Great young SP prospects on block
« on: November 17, 2009, 10:59:10 PM »
My Reds need some dynamite offense.

I've got two phenomenal 20-year-old SPs who are just about ready for the majors: Felipe Villareal & Ron Holloway.

Both players throw in the mid 90s, and they each have five pitches, which will insure a great transition to OOTPX. Holloway is the 14th-ranked pitching prospect in the NPBL. I only want to trade one of them, but I'm willing to enlarge the deal by including other players, and even picks.

These guys are very valuable, so I expect a healthy return. I'd like a young infielder with all five tools.

Which playoff teams won the most regular-season games with the least raw talent?

This chart divides the playoff teams' regular-season pythagorean wins by the cumulative total number of their active-roster players' "Overall Rating" stars, and ranks them in order, from highest to lowest (non-playoff teams still have September callup players on their rosters, so their numbers would be skewed, relatively).

General Discussion / Re: New forum Theme
« on: November 16, 2009, 08:33:30 PM »
Some of the forum colors seem to have reverted to an incomplete version of our theme mod. I'll fix it.

The server changes had left us with an invalid link in our forum's Themes directory paths setup.

Now it's fixed: we should have no more black-on-dark-blue or black-on-dark-gray links.

...Washington's Daniel Metcalf ...you are doing something special.

Metcalf went from the Storm to the Griffins in a hell of a trade:

Quote from: Transactions log
06-11-2031 D. Metcalf was traded by the Kansas Storm to the Washington Griffins in exchange for MR J. Aeyta, SP L. Chandler, 2B D. Daniels, LF R. Polzin, RF M. Shields, 1B C. Dallas.

Metcalf might be the best pitcher in the NPBL. He's spent four years in the bigs, and he's averaging a 20-4 record, with a 2.17 ERA and 1.01 WHIP, per season

What about those Storm players?

In seven combined seasons of work, the two pitchers have averaged a 6-8 record, with a 5.40 ERA, and a 1.55 WHIP.

The four batters have put together about 11.5 years of big-league play. They've hit .267 and averaged 53 R with 9 HR and 54 RBI per season, with an OPS of .711 (the GEL league average this season was .726).

Metcalf has brought home 73.4 VORP per year (293.7 total); he's 25 years old. The "Twisters Six" have averaged 2.4 VORP per season (44.3 cumulative); their mean age is 26.5 years.

Looking at the Kansas players themselves, a couple of them, 1B Dallas and OF Shields, have above-average abilities, and Shields has got the skills to break out and be an All-star.

But, looking back—Kansas should have kept Metcalf.

Team MVPs / Re: RI team MVP
« on: October 30, 2009, 10:42:29 PM »
The Rhode Island Reds 2034 team MVP is catcher Glenn Steger. He has now won this award six consecutive times.

Steger was an elite offensive player in the Founding Fathers League during the 2034 season:

he ranked 2nd in slugging percentage, on-base-plus-slugging percentage, and runs-created-per-27-outs;

he ranked 3rd in batting average, on-base percentage, runs batted in, and VORP.

His value to our ballclub is beyond measure.
