The baseball Gods hate me: Orioles rained out on my Bday (sim)

Recommended Posts

How much do the baseball Gods hate me this year? Even the sim rained out my Orioles game fix today on my birthday! :D

O's and Red Sox rained out and will be made up as a double header tomorrow.

The happiest of birthdays. A monumental one.

Not rained out in my sim on OOTP. Jose Rondon hit a walk off home run in the bottom of the 10th for an O's victory! We're in first place (with me managing LOL) at 3-1.

Do the O's get an extra roster spot for the double header?  If so any idea who gets the nod?

OOTP is deep, but not quite that deep.

From one of the developers:

But yeah, the simple fact of "double-header today give an extra roster spot" is pretty easy, but it's all the other stuff. You have to make sure when you're evaluating trading logic that teams aren't trying to build a 26-man roster and value a trade differently whether they have a double-header on that day or not. You probably want to make sure they're not making a waiver claim just for that 26th man spot. You need to make sure that roster logic doesn't go haywire when teams have an extra roster spot every couple weeks, causing them to churn through player options or DFA guys and whatnot.



Probably a bunch of other stuff too. I'd love to have this in, don't get me wrong. But it's definitely a lot more than a 5 minute fix.

My solution would be to not have an extra roster spot because, really. You can't manage a 25/26-man roster for a season like pretty much everyone has done for 120 years?  Especially now with the 3-batter rule, you don't have to have five guys who just face one batter a game.  I'd prefer a game with 21-man rosters where managers would really have hard choices, not just figuring out if their 8th- or 9th-best reliever was juuuust right for two out in the 7th.  Strategy comes from difficult, unintuitive decisions.  Not from acquiescing to managers' desires to do anything they want at any moment.

That's a good question. I'll have to see.

I think that's the key. With the 26th man already, not sure they need to add another slot.

    • The comp is more to do with them having similar stances, slightly pull heavy swings, and profile than production. I googled Mookie Betts as a prospect and his scouting grades: Hit: 65 | Power: 45 | Run: 60 | Arm: 45 | Field: 55 https://www.mlb.com/news/mookie-betts-leads-bostons-updated-top-20-list/c-85946126 Here is Martin's scouting grades from the same place: HIT: 65 POWER: 50 RUN: 55 ARM: 50 FIELD: 55 https://www.mlb.com/prospects/draft/austin-martin-668885 Pretty similar profiles. Of course 95% of players with those scouting grades don't produce like Mookie Betts will.
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, the Orioles defeated the Indians 5-4.  Dick Hall was credited with the win for his 1/3 of an inning of work in relief of Jim Palmer: Hall got Ray Fosse to pop out to second to end the 7th inning.  The Birds scored three runs in the bottom of the 7th which led to Hall's victory. Palmer hit his first homerun of the season leading off the third inning.  Don Buford went 1 for 3 with 2 RBI as well. For the record, Pete Richert recorded the save for the Orioles. BOX SCORE
    • Just to clarify, he’s talking specifically about pitchers that have justified being picked.
    • No, but the salary cap makes things very wonky in the NBA and NHL. While the NFLs system really screws over the players. The only way I see the MLBPA giving into a salary cap is if they cut the years of control right in half.  Which would basically change strategy away from developing home grown talent. 
    • I'm over the moon if Tork is available at 2. I get the defensive and athletic upside is limited, but that is such a special bat. .285 and 30 HR annually? Absolutely. Realistically, I wouldn't be upset with either Martin or Lacy at 2. Martin might not project the upside as a traditional 1-2, but there is something to be said for his tools across the board. Pitchers this high make me nervous as well, but a Rodriguez-Lacy-Hall top of the rotation sounds formidable, health permitting. 
    • So, former GM Jim Bowden is now writing for the Atlantic.  According to his research, there were 42 players taken among the 80 players selected in the first five picks of the 16 MLB drafts between 2000 and 2015 and only five of the 42 have justified the selection - Verlander, Price, Strausburg, Cole and Bauer.  Two of those pitchers, Verlander and Strausburg, were "no-brainer" decisions.  It is a hit rate far below WC's opening post.
    • Just keep chucking talent into the firebox and hope that coaching, video, personality tests, wearable tech, organizational philosophy, and the mysteries of the universe  squirt out some rare nuggets at a reasonable pace.
