    Baseball simulations

    I've become embarrassingly addicted to Pennantwars.com. You essentially build your own team via free agency/draft/trades. Your team then sims 6 games per day. The sim engine is smarter than I would...

    It'll be a slap in the face if they don't spend the money they saved last year. Remember they promised 50-52% of revenue?

    He was one of the worst players in baseball this year. His fielding was bad, and his hitting was historically bad. Players who have a season like he had don't go on to do well.
