How are things going for you? This league needs to be more vocal and exciting. We have some interesting races going on and some guys putting up some serious numbers. How are you feeling about your season? Obviously I am quite pleased so far with how things are going for me. I am bummed a lost Cust for no reason since he was my big power guy. I have been having to play small ball which is enjoyable but it was fun to have that one guy who could put it out at any time. I think I will be OK as the season progresses since I have been keeping hitters off balanced but I havent really played any of the big gunners in the league yet beside the Royals who actually hit me pretty hard but right at guys. That is one perk of the A's though with a really fast outfield with great arms. I think the team to beat in the AL is the Twins. I played CA in preseason and he definitely knows how to play ball and he has a really strong team. If anything pitching may be an issue but in this game big names dont matter much, but its more important to have pitchers that have big changes in speed. I will probably get to the playoffs with the A's but it will be tough to compete with the big market clubs. The new Bosox owner seems to be legit. He claims to be a newbie to baseball but when i played him he had great timing and excellent plate vision. Seems like a good dude who can really do some damage if he gets his pitching together and irons out minor details like base running and pitching meter. The sox pitching and lineup are stacked so depending on how his game improves who could have a serious shot at winning the AL. The AL wild card should be nuts. It would be nice if the Angels owner would play a bit more as he could possibly the best in the AL but you never know with 4 games played. The central should be awesome as it looks really talented. It is crazy how well Eaglesirish has done with the arguably the worst team in baseball. I know from experience it is nice playing and winning with a lesser team but when it gets down to the playoffs and big games the teams really matter so it will be interesting to see what happens with the Royals. The NL looks completely open, especially the EAST. All teams within .5 games is insane. I know its still early but they have a third of their season in and its still extremely tight. I havent really looked at the schedules but it could get really intense down the road with late game divisional series. I guess all divisions are pretty tight. I thought the dodgers were going to run away with the west but they are tailing off a bit. They put up some serious offensive numbers but much like the real dodgers, Emmdot has let up some big numbers. From my perspective, looking at stats and summaries the Nats, Phils, and Dodgers look really strong and should all be there towards the end of the season. As far as stats go I don't know what the STL owner is doing with ludwick but 8 jacks and 18 rbi's is insane. Philly looks to know what he is doing which is scary with that rotation, especially in the playoffs with a 3 man rotation. They are my favorite to win the NL based on what I know but honestly I dont know much. I think it is still way too early to talk MVP and CY young candidates. I had Chavez put up 8RBI's and 3 triples in 1 game and even crazier shit happens in real life. I wish I had a guy in the homerun race which should end up close. Anyways those are how I feel about the league. It would be nice if we could be a bit more social and get into this league. This is a beautiful spots simulation and I think we can all make more of an effort to make this enjoyable. Lets stir the pot here, make some rivalries, post meaningful articles perhaps about other people than yourself cause lets be honest, no one really cares to here about your meaningless games. Lets build some of these games up, talk some shit, get competitive. Don't post any shit about this should have happened in my game, im not winning because my team blah, just play your best and leave it on the field. Be a man and speak your mind and play your best and this league will be a lot more interesting.
