20 game losing streak has ended

Post by phishingtrip »

Home fans were treated to the first Supernova win in almost a month. During that time the Supernovas were outscored 60 to 171 (3 runs scored to 8.5 runs given up a game). They did manager a 14 run eruption in one game so that is skewing their productivity. It will be a long season in Oakland and rumors are rampid about a possible relocation.

When pitching prospect Pinky Nichols was approached whether he could help the major league team's pitching staff he had this to say: "Don't call me up... I'd rather stay on the farm"

You better be careful or Fentuzler will yell at you and call you bad names.

How many years of first overall picks am I allowed?
My lack of pitching and or pitching prospects is going to make 60 wins terribly difficult

My understanding is you get first draft choice by being last in the league for the year.
Or acquire it through trading from a previous or future last place finisher.
I guess that would continue as long as it takes to pull yourself out of cellar.
Your team has been a high performer from 2090-96 winning the division each of those years. and then
it aged out and you picked it up when it was free falling. It might take you a while.
I picked up Seattle at the very end of 96 and it was in the cellar but was just getting ready to crawl out
based on the previous owners rebuild efforts and me doing what I could to scrap something together now I'm hopeful
of a 500 season and a strengthening team.
But there are some serious powerhouse teams in the AL so its not easy.
Hey here's a hint if you want to have a better shot at first round draft pick: dont beat my team 3 games in a row!

It's a good thing you and CEO had a head start while I purged this Atlanta team. Our record is falling fast now :) I'm pretty sure I'll slip ahead of Montreal in the draft.
