  1. .. I posted that just 5-days ago. As of right now (Sunday Aug 2 @ 12:40pm) per MLB standings & overall schedule, 17 of 132 games (13%) have been postponed due to covid so far. Additionally, about 20 MLB players have already opted out of playing this year including David Price, Ryan Zimmerman, Lorenzo Cain, & Buster Posey. So while it may or may not be within the 10-day window I suggested 5-days ago .. it is still very relevant to ask how much longer MLB will continue this 2020 season before shutting it down for good? LOL .. imagine .. someone complaining about the originator of this discussion for posting about Covid-19 in the only thread with Covid-19 in its title! Fact is, without Tiger games to watch, I had not been sitting in front of TV with my laptop on & open to this site. Thus, had not been regularly following all discussions here. .. .. .. .. .. .. Weird, huh? It was not my intent to confuse. I'd like to see the 60-game season play out to completion too. Unfortunately, I just do not think that will be happening.
  2. In this year 2020 .. I could see 20-20 as a fair opportunity toward a potential playoff spot.
  3. Realistic scenario: Suppose this shortened 60-game season somehow manages to play out and the season actually gets to the playoffs. Then, suppose one of the better teams in the playoffs quickly-by-chance experiences what the Marlins are currently experiencing? What then?
  4. The shortened season was a great attempt by MLB .. but already appears doomed. Considering the current situation with the Marlins ..am thinking the planned 60-game season will be called off within the next 10 days. Simply put, I believe there is a very high likelihood that too many positive cases involving several teams will heighten the fears among all those personally involved in the sport. Moreover, IMHO ..some of the players/teams appear to be not taking the virus serious enough .. not practicing social distancing seriously enough .. including the TIGERS!
  5. The Tigers will have fewer than 60 losses this year!
  6. Game on .. finally! Sure did miss it!!! Hate this piped-in crap though. In January 2020 and/or February 2020.. who would have ever believed the Tigers would have only 1 loss at the July 24 mark of the season??? Oh .. wondering .. ... .... ... ..... Will their be a magic number thread this year?
  7. JT Watkins .. named as the big Big BIG Red Sox "sign-stealing" cheater during their 2018 World Championship season .. and NOBODY else named as a 'cheater'. Makes me think JT Watkins is getting paid big Big BIG money 'under-the-table' to take the sole rap for this. Because incidently, IIRC, JT Watkins was also named one of the big Big BIG cheaters in the Red Sox Apple Watch cheating scandal during their 2017 season. The Red Sox certainly have their scapegoat.
  8. If there are parents who brought their children .. why are they not being charged with child endangerment? Because the 'authorities' have neither the capability nor the courage to charge the masses with it. So ..ignorant people will endanger others.
  9. Batters get most of the blame for 'extending' the time of games .. but IMHO .. pitchers share the same amount of blame. Most of them no longer 'get the ball and throw it'. Even if games were being played right now and if the Tigers were a highly competitive team ..I know I would not watch as often as I used to in times past because I find it a bit irritating to see either batter or pitcher wasting my time.
  10. Just posted in other thread that I purchased the previous version .. OOTP-20. It is fun to play. Very time consuming though.
  11. I bought the previous season version yesterday .. and have been in front of my computer ever since. I played one entire season. Miguel Cabrera and Spencer Turnbull had very good seasons, while both Jacoby Jones and Jordan Zimmerman had his best season as Tigers. Probably not going to get into it too deeply after today. Way WAY too time consuming to get deep into it. It brings back memories of staying up nearly all night many years ago playing various versions of different virtual baseball simulation games / seasons. I will probably create myself as a player .. and my brother too .. and may three virtual sons to follow in my footsteps. Will probably become the greatest baseball family ever. That's what I like about the 'edit' features of virtual games like these.
  12. Yes .. knew it was a HR .. also knew Miggy did not get walked at all. Was just curious why it did that. I may actually go an buy the game now .. thanks to your answers to my questions earlier.
  13. It says ..immediately below the chart ..that In the top of the 4th, MIguel Cabrera drew a walk driving in 2 runs. ???
  14. Hey chasfh .. .. .. .. Can you create players in that game? How about change 'ratings' for any / all players? Can you have multiple owner .. able to start a league with different real-life owners for different teams?
