    The Dugout

    Confucius Rex, unfortunately, has decided to step down. Thus, the Athletics are now open. We're still deciding on what NBL member will be called up. In the mean time, we're opening up the team to ML owners. If you're interested in swapping to the Athletics, please express interest here. The team vacancy will be filled during Tuesday's sim.

    ...And be as effective as you'd expect the law to be in Oakland.

    Funny enough, I just stumbled upon an article about how some of the Valley tech scene is starting to move to Oakland because it's cheap. The article basically said it was dumb, this was the picture.

    The Oakland fan base is the reason I keep my ticket prices so high.

    Don't worry. I'm not bailing on y'all that easily. I'm planning on sticking around and observing and all. I just need to take a break from OOTP for a few months or so. The grind of things was making me not enjoy it.

    But if anyone new in the MLB wants a sig just post in that sig thread I made and I'll whip one right up. They're just templates so it's not hard to do.

    Just a reminder, this opening will be filled tonight.

    The NBL member being called up will be OMlawdog. He will be taking over the Athletics if no current ML owners swap over to them.

    So I guess the first question I have is what is the whole story on major league contracts and spring training? I just need a brief summary.

    I was just fucking around - apparently there was a thread about it, and it got testy - so of course I just want to poke the bear.
