    2100 Season Chat

    I really hate when I don't get much access for the first 24 hours of the season and miss out on all the FAs. Boo Hoo.

    Interesting smoke-and-mirrors show in Youngstown right now. Despite a shell of a lineup, the pitching staff (which to be fair DOES have three former Cy Young winners & a future HOF closer on it) has led the rebuilding Steel to a hot start.

    Will it stay that way? Of course not. But it's been kind of weird to watch so far. After years of TRYING to win... now that I'm rebuilding, the wins are coming in bunches.

    Either way... I have SEVEN first round picks this year. Betting the farm on a deep draft. With my luck, it'll have future Hall of Famers with every pick until just before my first one - and then hot garbage the rest of the way. Time will tell.

    I don't there is a way that you get the most wins in the division but there is a chance you could make the playoffs. Once in the playoffs, anything can happen, especially with your pitching.

    TX BBQ has gotten off to a rotten start and many blame the start on the release of Eric Jones. Former TX BBQ great SS Bruce Duren had this to say: "I couldn't care less about the team struggling. What we know is we can improve. Setcho Pix, our pitcher, had a couple InYoFaceSetcho games the first part of the season, and we struggled."

    I still feel letting Eric Jones was the right thing to do and that the TX BBQ team will come together to at least 95% of what it was last year. When you have so many All-stars on one team the salaries become hard to manage. My evaluation said one of these four things had to go:
    --Player Drills (along with Player Development and scouting)
    --Starting Pitchers 4 and 5 as well as the whole bullpen. Boyd Pruitt would have been gone and a couple players around $1,500,000 would have been the 4 and 5 starters. Bullpen would be all total scrubs.
    --DH Donald Johnson
    --SP3 Eric Jones

    Ultimately I chose Eric Jones since I felt like I could trade for a cheaper Pitcher after 4/1 who was also good. Also, it seems like the league is short on hitting so I kept Donald Johnson since it seemed he could not be replaced easily by trade. We'll see how it goes, especially if there are more game 7's to play.

    Well it seems to be working again for.you this year as you lead the league in runs scored and also lead the league in runs against, and you're the only team with a winning record in you're division, so right decision made but I would have traded him for picks or atleast offered him up to see if there would be any takers this way you could control where he goes to keep him out of a rivals hands

    Since he's 33, I don't think I could have gotten that much for him. but maybe I could have.

    Maybe a late 1st round especially with an impressive record and era he had last season

    Re: 2100 Season Chat

    I'm starting to finally appreciate Gerald Bobo... one of the more polarizing players I've had on any team. Always above average, rarely great, & for MANY seasons he was frustrating because of his INCREDIBLY high salary ($11.929 million at its peak).

    But now, at 35, he's one of the main contributors in Youngstown's surprise run - after SEVEN trades, shipping out many of his teammates from the (almost) great teams over the last ten seasons or so. Bobo just passed the 3,000 strikeout mark for his career & is closing in on 200 wins.

    Lots of strikeouts, lots of walks... but his endurance & .219 opponents' average for his career have typically kept the team in games. Despite his dip in velocity, he's been incredibly solid this season. We'll see if it can continue, but at least for now this rag-tag group of aging stars mixed with free agent signings & trade acquisitions is hanging in there.

    Re: 2100 Season Chat

    I'm trying to figure out this ridiculous season where somehow the TX BBQ are a bubble team for the playoffs. I thought it would be a very easy season as far as getting the most wins in the division. Its amazing that TX BBQ and Youngstown have a huge series coming up after Youngstown sold so many great players, and had a record haul of draft picks, which should have negatively affected pitching, defense, and offense, relegating that team to a terrible record.

    Some stats that tell part of the TX BBQ side of the story:

    Number of games lost by TX BBQ Top 4 starting pitchers through August 1st for 2099 versus 2100
    ---Setcho Pix: 7 vs 7
    ---John Nelson: 4 vs 8
    ---Eric Jones/Murray Little: 3 vs 3
    ---Boyd Pruitt: 4 vs 8
    The losses stat shows that the problem was not that Eric Jones was replaced but that the other top pitchers on the team are all on track to greatly surpass their loss totals of 2099. This is fairly remarkable since there was no degradation in pitching ratings (except for Murray who has not been the one losing games) and the defense and offense are completely intact and the best in League of Legends. There is almost nothing to point to as to why Nelson and Pruitt have double the losses up to this point except for bad luck.

    TX BBQ Record in games decided by 1 run through August 1st: 2099 vs 2100
    --- 14-14 vs 9-20

    TX BBQ Record in games decided by 10 or more runs through August 1st: 2099 vs 2100
    --- 9-1 vs 7-1

    TX BBQ OPS: 2099 vs through Aug 1st of 2100
    --- 0.821 vs 0.797

    TX BBQ ERA: 2099 vs through Aug 1st of 2100
    --- 2.47 vs 2.92

    TX BBQ Top 4 pitchers ERA: 2099 vs through Aug 1st of 2100
    ---Setcho Pix: 1.69 vs 1.70
    ---John Nelson: 2.12 vs 2.44
    ---Eric Jones/Murray Little: 1.41 vs 2.76
    ---Boyd Pruitt: 2.29 vs 3.48

    TX BBQ Defensive Range 2099 vs 2100:
    ---SS 97 vs 97
    ---2B 91 vs 90
    ---CF 96 vs 96
    ---3B 97 vs 97
    ---LF 94 vs 94
    ---RF 95 vs 94
    ---1B 73 vs 73

    All the stats seem to show no degradation in fielding but a degradation in both hitting and pitching. With no degradation in fielding or pitching ratings, the much worse ERAs of Pruitt and Nelson can only be chalked up to bad luck (and/or good luck last year).

    The degradation in hitting might be expected with Donald Johnson reaching 35 years old but he actually has a higher OPS than last year. Instead its Jay Cruz and Howard Chouinard having much worse seasons than last year. They have no ratings loss and the offense has not lost any hitter since last year so it must be bad luck that these two players have lowered their OPS.

    Altogether, it seems that bad luck this year compared to last year is the culprit so I still contend with average luck that the TX BBQ should win the most games in the division. However, the statistical anomalies have gone on much too long for comfort compared to the season Terry Cueva was a top MVP candidate batting .372 in mid May, 2094.
