I've updated the OOTP14 game: http://tinyurl.com/padcircus/ so feel free to see how well (or, in my case how poorly) your team is doing so far. BTW, managers, if you don't like your team's nickname, let me know and I'll be happy to change it. I went by the name you gave during sign-up or made one up if you didn't provide one. I am not stuck to these, though. I can easily make your team YOUR team!
As a matter of conversation, before I run the simulated games each time, I have the AI set the line-ups, etc. That way, teams with injured players can sub those, pull rotations set by the game, etc. I was told OOTP does a good job of handling the day-to-day stuff. Plus, I figure if I do that for everyone, then no matter what, we can all blame (or praise) the program for our team's performance.
I mentioned the other day that I had gone to Target over the weekend and picked up some 2014 Stickers. Let's see what one of the packs has to offer:
Chris Archer - Rays - Free Agent
Anthony Rendon - Nationals - Free Agent
Puzzle #312 - Yeah, I have no idea what to do with puzzles like this.
Jhoulys Chacin - Rockies - Quarrys (Wahoo!!)
Ryne Sandberg - Cubs - Pedersejs (Wahoo!!)
Atlanta Braves Mascot - Free Agent
Martin Perez - Rangers - PlayAtThePlates (Wahoo!!)
Fredbird - Cardinals Mascot - Free Agent
First of all, congrats to the managers who pulled players today! Secondly, Mascots are treated just like players. They will be drafted and I will create OOTP players for their manager's team. It will be just like the SUN SUN in the last draft...
Hmm, I just tried to pull SUN SUN's stats and s/he doesn't have a player page. Not sure what happened there. Oh well, hopefully there will be a page eventually. Still not sure how some of this OOTP works.
