Out of the Park Baseball 19 - The quest for the Perfect Team


#921

So far so good. Lou Gherig’s first 10 games with me:


#922

Heh, you have Lou Gehrig. I have Wally Pipp.

Wally is an overall 42 or something. If I ever do pick up Gehrig, I’ll put in Wally for one game, then swap in Gehrig for the rest of eternity, as happened in real life. :)


#923

Or put Lou in for 1 game, pretend he gets hurt, stick Pipp and reverse history!


#924

My gold team is still hanging out at about .500 only a couple games out of a wildcard, and watching @KWhit continue his run at the top of the division. My diamond team seems to be firing on all cylinders this year, currently 79-47 with the best record in the league and a 14 game division lead. They had one month of .500 ball in June, but outside of that they have been performing really well. Lineup hasn’t really changed, so I guess the league composition and rng gods are smiling on them. Now of course I’ve probably jinxed them to cratering in September and the playoffs.


#925

My bronze team just had quite the game, winning 29-0.

Here are the achievements I got from it:




That’s 17 achievements for 9270 PP. Thanks, Farmington!


#926

HOLY BLEEP


#927

I know, right?

I used the winnings (and some I had been saving) to splurge on a nice SP I have had my eye on - Mike Scott.


#928

Bang Bang Maxwells Silver Hammer indeed. That C Maxwell card is pretty good.

And 9000 pp for one game… jeez. that is awesome.


#929

My diamond team is currently 83-60, so I guess I did jinx them. The division lead is down to 5.5 games.


#930

Yikes!


#931

I wasn’t complaining when it was going in my favor so I guess I shouldn’t complain when it doesn’t, but it is frustrating. :)


#932

Looks like my silver league is going to come down to the wire. The Boston Beaneaters have gotten hot and taken over the division. I’m currently in the #1 WC spot and the Charlotte Communists are in the #3 WC spot. No one else is close in the WC so as long as I finish at least 2nd in my division I should be in the playoffs. I was hoping picking up Gherig would fire up my offense but even though he is playing great I’m still struggling a bit to score runs.

My son likes to check my team which has been a cute little thing to do together.

I wasn’t paying attention and he sold all my good players for basically nothing.

I thought I got a great deal on a diamond Mike Schmidt for 17k. The guy who got it for 10k must be happy.


#934

Ouch.

Had a strange thing happen with PP today. In August I snapped a 6 game losing streak and received 100pp. Today I snapped a 7 game losing streak and received nothing. Not sure why it didn’t kick in the 2nd time.


#935

Ouch, sorry Lantz. I hope your son is happy with his new family.


#936

I’m pretty sure you only get the losing streak reward once per season. That way people can’t milk it for easy PP if they are trying to tank.


#937

The Expats have come back this season and are in a fight for the last wild card spot!


#938

Oh, @Lantz, that sucks.


#939

So that pitcher I purchased a couple of days ago - Mike Scott… Wow.

He has started 6 games since we bought him and won all of them, winning player of the game every time.


#940

The Expats swept the final 4 game series to take the second wild card spot.
