  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Just posted in other thread that I purchased the previous version .. OOTP-20. It is fun to play. Very time consuming though.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. It says ..immediately below the chart ..that In the top of the 4th, MIguel Cabrera drew a walk driving in 2 runs. ???
  8. 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?
  9. I think that College baseball might flourish if not for so many minor league teams. The fans that typically might attend MiLB would likely attend local college games if available. Also, fans would show up simply out of loyalty toward their favorite college. Thus, I highly doubt attendance would be an issue ..even in summer. I think plenty of fans would still show up. I also think that if there were fewer MiLB teams ..and college baseball became a bit more popular for local populations .. the bigger problem might be to get enough players at every college to play well into the summer. But .. I think that issue could be resolved via some creative forms of academic requirements the players might fulfill in summer classes instead of fall/winter classes. I also believe that if MiLB was greatly reduced ..and college baseball were to gain greater appeal ..that the NCAA could increase the quantity and quality of scholarships each college could extend to lure players. ...... On a lighter note .. I do not believe that hitting a baseball is the hardest thing to do in sports. There may be many other sports skills that are more difficult. Right off the top of my head ..seems being a successful NFL quarterback may be much more difficult, because there are far more successful baseball hitters than successful pro quarterbacks.
  10. Actually, the government has almost unlimited power to control a significant majority of the US population. I suspect this current 'pandemic' will eventually pan out to be no more deadly overall than some other strains of virus' that have already occurred during the current 21st century. We all have access to the current available data .. at this moment nearly 60,000 confirmed cases in the USA with about 825 deaths thus far. What we do not know is how many actually have or had much milder symptoms that have not been tested and may never be tested. Little doubt there will eventually be a cure and/or a vaccine. Just a matter of 'when'. I remember getting vaccine shots way back in grade school ..when some of our 'Up North' Michigan schools had more than one class in a classroom. IIRC, ..measles and polio shots. Have not looked it up ..but those may have been more contagious and more deadly than CoVid-19.
  11. I agree with you Randy. Perhaps it was the loss of draft picks that hurt the Tigers' farm system more than the actual trades of drafts picks did.
  12. Just thinking .. IF they postpone the draft until next year .. what other players available next year might be a better choice than any of Torkelson, Martin, or Hancock? I could look it up.
  13. I see it a bit differently. When 'infected' numbers do go down ..and thinking no way the US Federal Government will allow this thing to get out of hand again .. neither will MI Gov Gretchen Whitmer. To a lessor extent ..also think MLB will want to avoid the 'liability' that might result, especially within such a highly litigious society as the US is. Thus, am thinking large crowds will not resume until a vaccine is discovered and everyone is immunized. Figure at least October ..just prior to National elections! What this means ..in my own opinion ..is that MLB is probably gone for all 2020.
  14. Might work. Folks from all over the country who desire to attend could plan their vacations around it .. and the All-Star host city could do their fireworks immediately following the game.
  15. True .. that's why I used the phrase 'current' top tier pitching prospects .. because they will no longer be pitching prospects then. Imperative the Tiger's continue to draft and sign players who will be top tier prospects that could have great trade value if needed. Robert Campos is a highly regarded international prospect that is still only 16, ..and either Hancock, Torkelson or Martin will be another prospect that may not quite be ready before 2024. Could they become eventually be traded while still a minor league prospect? Should probably consider the likelihood that the Tigers could get a top-three draft pick again in 2021.
