2. I could have sworn Virginia took Dorian Gibbons in the third round. Because I was planning on taking Scott, and then, when my pick came up, I thought Scott was still available.. but I decided to take Rodriquez instead. and now I see Gibbons went to Illinois in round three, so ... so what the heck was I thinking? Why did I think Virginia had taken him. Weird.

I had fouled up my list (since deleted) and it auto-picked Gibbons for me. But on my end it didnít appear to have gone further in the draft so I changed my pick (I have admin rights as a backup). Iím able to do this for anybody else if we have more draft issues (I remember having to pick a couple last year too).

I'm not thrilled with my 3rd round pick. I was in there making changes as Minnesota was still on the board (though I still had my list pick up) and was adding people to my list. Next thing I know, I had a new guy (though not necessarily the guy I was going to choose). Not a huge deal and I will live with it though I was definitely leaning towards Garland.

I feel like there must be some code of player traits where they play better or worse depending on the month.  For the past several seasons, my team starts out terribly, but finishes rather well.  This first half of ST, the team goes 3-9 and I just know we are in for the same slow start.

Well fellas, I'm not going to stand for it this year.  If you play well, you'll get more playing time.  I don't care who you are or what the scouts say your ratings are.  That may also mean that while you start the year with a lot of playing time, you could end the year in AAA (or vice versa).

Pennsylvania Storylines for 2078

25-year-old RP Bob Walker converting to starter...  11.57 ERA in two Spring Training starts  :o

Can Paco keep hitting?  Veteran outfielder Paco Alvarado hit .265 last year after hitting .215, .197, .208 and .207 the previous 4 seasons. 

Zipper V Jesus...  22-year-old prospect Jesus Gallegos is challenging fellow 22-year-old Zipper Munoz for the starting 1B job.  Zipper hit .307/18/64 last year, so Jesus has his work cut out.

Hey guys, massive power outage in my area, so I'm unable to sim at the moment.  I'll get to it as soon as the power comes back on.

Well, at least there's no shoveling involved.
