It's ok. I'm returning a 110 win team comprised mostly of 25 year olds completely intact. I'm sure the machine's days are numbered, even if that number is a triple digit one.

Feels bad man. Had no business being in the playoffs, but losing in the WS hurts. Don't know if I'll ever make it back there.

My next step is getting me a laptop so I can mess around with this in bed. My 2010 netbook can run this, but it loads so slowly and I can't deal. This could be a really good or a really bad idea.

Don't I know it. I had the first 3 years in the playoffs, with the last of those into the World Series and just couldn't get it done. Team is in rebuild mode

Enjoying my updated budget, but I don't know who I'm going to spend all that money on. I could add like 50 million in salary. Don't really have anyone in arbitration I'd want to lock up to a long term deal either.

I could take on salary if anyone is looking to shed payroll. Obviously the player or prospects involved would have to make it worth my interest. Could use an OF, 1B, C, or prospects of any flavor.

I have the league imported into OOTP 17 and each of the 3 new players added into the game. Before we start to move, I'd still like to wait a couple days and see if we can snag some more of those manager spots (put out a feeler in the MLB thread), but I will upload the league from within OOTP 17 so people can play around with the game from within that client and the new managers can do so as well.

To access the game in OOTP 17, you will need to do a manual import. OOTP 17 must already be installed to complete the process.
Instructions on the link.

An upload was just completed from within OOTP 17, so you may all do this now if you'd like.

Yeah, the only thing the patch doesn't carry over is some database stuff that wouldn't effect a league like this. We're good.

No. If you had an offline league or something, you could still play it there, but you'd also be able to transfer it to 17, so there's not much use in keeping it installed.

I'll kept 16 on my desktop a bit longer, but I uninstalled it from my surface pro4.
I just did the download process on that machine and it went through without a hitch. Should be a smooth transition.

Well that was an easy upgrade. Really impressed with the updates, the almanac, the history, great upgrade this year.

And this exciting news!

You have just been informed that latest surveys among fans have shown that their loyalty to the Oakland Athletics has increased to a "Below Avg." rating.

Keep up the great work!

I knew we could do it, Oakland!

Transition to 17 was fairly painless. Wonder if we will see players who have completely different production based on the new version

Ohhh that's new... Ozuna wants an opt-out lol

Novembers player development is different which is unfortunate. A big spike Baker had is no longer there :( Scouts seem to be evaluating some players a bit differently too.

Currently have 9 teams open. I'm not aware of any people that are currently in the league not upgrading, but that's a possibility for 1-3 to drop it looks like. I'm not counting them out yet though, might just not have got back at this point.

I'm not an MLB thread regular, but I dropped a line in there. If anyone knows anyone that would have interest, point them this way.

Have you seen the Braves in real life recently? They were ruined when I got them but I was able to salvage a couple decent seasons. I will have us back in the playoffs in the next few seasons.

But I have no money since I lost 100 games

I'm not planning on picking this up but curious for those in the league, as I've been interested in this game, how much of a time commitment is it? I assume it varies by person but are we talking an hour a day, 4 hours? I may pick up the mobile version this year and then see about the full version next year. Thanks!

I can only speak for myself, but most days I don't find myself spending more than like 10 minutes messing with my team. There are times when it's more and times when it's less.

Playing single player, I've lost hours and hours simming deep into the future. I'll get 30 seasons done in a day or two. In the league, it's 5 minutes of plate spinning every day. We've done 5 seasons in a year.

Here's how my 5 minute check in goes:

- Download latest
- Check sim results email "You've gone 2-4 last week"
- Curse
- Look for other starred emails "Baseball McBaseballer overall rating now 70!"
- Check on Baseball McBaseballer - offer contract extension, 5 yrs @ $15/per
- Look at roster
- See guy with red plus sign next to him, signifying injury
- Notice it's my best player
- "Your best player is out 2-3 months after slipping on a sunflower seed packet"
- Curse
- Check the minors, dogshit. Promote Dogshit.
- Ask manager to set lineups
- Dogshit, playing RF, batting 3rd
- Check waiver wire, see nothing on waiver wire
- Upload roster

The Next Day

- Download latest
- Check sim results email "You've gone 5-1 last week"
- Raise eyebrows
- Look for other starred emails "Baseball McBaseballer signs contract 5 yrs @ $15/per!"
- Look at roster
- See guy with red plus sign next to him, signifying injury
- Notice it's Baseball McBaseballer
- "Baseball McBaseballer will miss a year with a torn labrum"
- Curse
- Check on Dogshit
- Dogshit hit .750-3-10 in the week
- Think "Dogshit is now my best player. I love Dogshit"
- Upload roster
