To Move or Not Move to OOTP 20 is THE question. Fargo’s perspective

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 expenses. Firstly, from an online community perspective it might be worth it for me to pay the 35 schmeckles, but when i look what OOTP did to FHM 5 and Perfect team i had to think twice. My first question is why do i need to support the latest edition of a game if* it is basically the same version but with the latest MLB rosters? For some this is enough but within a season each team will look different anyway. Then there is the noble philanthropist argument which states “to support the project”. Well my dear friends, i am in a position that 35 USD can buy me a week of f...

Trading draft picks

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 which could significantly impact our league – trading too many draft picks can make a franchise collapse – it is not ideal. Maybe we should not aim for an ‘ideal’ situation as this term is ambiguous in our CBL league because every member has his own preference. Nonetheless, the current rule seems unnatural, or rather frustrating to me because it’s making trades which include draft picks stagnate. Sure, one can argue that this is why the rule works and should be implemented ( to prevent too many draft picks being traded). However, in such a situat...

Fargo Nordiques a new organization.

    It was a cold winter evening when Natan Shapkovic received a call from a franchise that just lost its GM. No one knows what happened to the former GM, but rumors have it that he disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Allegedly the anonymous caller told Shapkovic that money was to be made in the U.S and that he would receive a great salary if he took the position of GM. When Shapkovic asked where the team was located the caller only told him ”you will love it”. For some unclear reason Shapkovic needed desperately the money and had no choice but to accept the generous offer from the stranger on the phone. Once half of his salary arrived on his bank account in Poland he left to the airport, there at the airport he would receive a call with the final destination,...

Knights April Review

The Charlotte Knights have been an early surprise in a packed Frontier League this season. The Knights opened the season 8-2 and finished April with a 13-10 record good enough for second place in a league with over half its teams posting 10 or more wins in the month. Minneapolis has a healthy three-game lead with a 16-7 record. Led by former waiver wire selection Curt Tullos, the Knights have used power and pitching to jump out to a hot start. Tullos has posted a team-best .988 OPS in the first month of competition and leads the team in home runs with 9 and RBI with 22. The Knights are tied for fourth in the league with 34 home runs with Hector Espinosa adding seven to the total. Much has been made of Espinosa and Addison Russell co-opening a night club in the offseason and whether the eve...

Trouble in Bat City

With nicknames of Bat City, Waterloo, City Of The Violet Crown to name a few, Austin might have a new nickname soon. Bad blood already boiling over for the Austin Bats and their new manager John Urick. Jose Nieto and Robinson Castaneda got into it over the past week as the Bats went 0 – 3 against the rebranded Liberty. Nieto was quoted as saying, “It’s his fault we’re losing ballgames. I was just trying to let him know that he (Castaneda) needs to play better, and he took offense to it.” Some other members of the Bats had to step in and calm down the situation but many of those in the clubhouse were puzzled as to what Nieto was talking about. Castaneda only pitched 0.1 of an inning giving up no runs while Nieto pitched 3.1 innings and gave up 4 runs only 1 bei...
