#PackADailyCircus #ootp - 025 - More updates, standings, and a pack to bust

Hello, Pack-A-Daily Circus-goers! What a CRAZY couple of days here in the land of Tribecards. I believe I actually have all the rosters set correctly - this time. No, really. I think I do. The Managers/Players list is current. Some players got moved around because I had put them on the wrong team and/or the OOTP game was moving players around as well. I think I have the game under control.

For those interested, I had set the game such that I was the manager for all teams. I also set the game for no trades. Somewhere, I think those settings were glitched or something. Even though the checkbox was off for trades, players were moving around. I think the issue came up when I told the game to have AI set rosters. In ootp15, that just moved players from reserve to active. In ootp16, I'm not sure it behaves that way. I will ask their support about that.

In any case, the managers/players list will be edited by hand for now on. It just makes my life easier.

Speaking of the ootp game, I ran the simulation after getting teams squared away, and here is where things stand:

I had hoped to allow for you to be able to set your lineups this week, but with the stupidity of the rosters, I forgot. So, managers, you can look at your player list and let me know which players you want active (up to 25) and/or what you want your lineup to be. If you don't let me know, I will keep running things as I have (Er, well, I will not be having the AI do anything, though!).

This week's draft is a bust, as it is already Wednesday. So, look for an expanded draft next week! Wahoo!!

Was there something else? Probably. Oh, yeah, *IF* there is a video this week, I will do it this weekend. Sorting out the roster/game mess ate up all my possible recording time tonight. UGH!

Okay, let's bust some wax! Here is a pack of 1990 Donruss:

Carl Yastrzemski Puzzle 19, 20, 21 - Red Sox - Thoughts and Sox (Wahoo!!)
Will Clark All-Star - Giants - Play at the Plates (Wahoo!!)
Ed Whitson DiamondKings - Padres - Free Agent
Paul Sorrento - Twins - Free Agent
John Olerud - Blue Jays - Free Agent
Jerry Reed - Mariners - Free Agent
Curt Wilkerson - Cubs - Free Agent
Terry Kennedy - Giants - Free Agent
Tony Gwynn Sr All-Star - Padres - Backstop Cards (Wahoo!!)
Tony Castillo - Braves - Free Agent
Dave Justice - Braves - Free Agent

Cris Carpenter - Cardinals - Free Agent

Man! We pulled some freakin' awesome players out of this pack!! If this were 1990 and we were busting this, many of would be seriously flipping out. Who am I kidding? Many of us right now are probably freaking out. No? Just me? Well, so be it! Congratulations, managers!


  1. My team is 11-7 and a game back? Boy I hope the league doesn't stop by the clubhouse for random drug tests.

  2. Was there a draft this week? If so, I bet I missed it.

    1. No draft this week. I will send an email to all managers shortly!
