  • Around this time of the year the next version of OOTP is never far away. For some it is not a question IF to buy the latest version but WHEN to buy it. Some argue that 35 USD is worth it while others have other […]

    • We generally switch around June or July in real time, the game is usually on sale for the all star game and by then the majority of bugs and whatnot for the new version have been ironed out. Switching is usually necessary because it’s hard to find GMs for teams with older versions of the game.

      Personally, I completely disagree that the difference between OOTP 18 and 19 was simply a “roster update” as the AI is markedly improved and the strategic changes to bullpen usage especially were worth the update alone, so I think it’s a bit disingenuous to suggest upgrading from 19 to 20 would be just a roster update like you did. But again, that’s just my opinion.

      I hear you on the issues with the other games the company makes, but OOTP is one of the few games that CLEARLY upgrade several aspects of the game from version to version, and at a time when most video games are $60 minimum, getting the newest OOTP for somewhere between $25 and $45 depending on when you order it is a steal.

      But not to worry, I can’t imagine we upgrade any time sooner than June or July, which is months from now. If someone were to find a quarter a day (or merely spend 25 cents less a day) from now until June or July and it should pay for itself.

  • The current situation around trading draft picks is a compromise between drafting and not trading draft picks. In my opinion it’s an ok compromise, but like any other compromise that involves important decisions […]

    Is there such a thing as a good problem? Recent surge in offense has seen Mike Simmons (.205) bench fro Wee-Bey (.489) and the DL stint by Waters (.326) and Guem (.287) opened up a spot for Purtlebaugh (.340). With Convey hitting (.309) Seawolves are looking at what to do with Guem when he is healthy. Worst hitter for the Seawolves is Gamboa (.274).

  • CF Muddy Waters and RF Gyoo-jae Guem are placed on 10 Day for precautionary reason. Art Wee-Bey C,Andy Purtlebaugh CF, Mike Van Lengen DH, and Angelo Soto SP promoted to 25 man roster.
