I have bought every version since I think '99. I absolutely love it, and would reccomend everyone give it a shot. It is not as in-depth as OOTP, which can be a good thing at times. You can simulate an entire season in a minute too, which is much better then OOTP where it took about 15. Give it a shot.

What is OOTP.

Out of the Park Baseball. It is kind of expensive, but if you want a program that will come as close as possible to simulating a real GMs job you should check that out. Baseball Mogul strips it down a little, but you are still in charge of drafting and the minor leagues and stuff like that.

I'm downloading it now, although I'm addicted to MLB The Show at the moment. :D

Is Mogul still using points instead of real dollar amounts?

FindlayRed

No, it only used the points for one season. Thankfully they switched back to dollars a couple years ago.

Anyone have a link to the download? Or is it the "free demo" ? Can't seem to locate it?

Thanks in advance.

I bought BM 2003 when it came out and it is the one with points. I loved it. I tried the demo of 2004 and didnt like it as much. I bought this year's BM and its ok but I still prefer 2003.

On a similar topic, I just started playing Hardball Dynasty on what if sports and it is very in depth and of course it is played against human opponents instead of the computer.

Maybe I just suck, but this game is hard! 40 year old bullpen pitchers want $4+ million a year as free agents. Now I know how Krivsky feels.

I fought the same thing and decided to go with the kids. Made more money and the playoff with the kids. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... Too bad real games weren't being played in my computer last night.

To be honest, Baseball Mogul 07 isnt that much better then 06. The only real additions are a mediocre lefty/righty difference and a manager mode that I havent ever played. If you enjoy 06 I would reccomend sticking with it. But then again you could spend $20 on worse things.

i'd like to thank you guys for finding a away to burn about 10+ hours from my last week.

I tried to take the '99 Reds to the playoffs (I couldn't) and tried to rebuild the system better than Jimbo (I did) but I ran aground thanks to all those monster Arbitration salaries that were killing me. Too much debt - no new free agents, thus by 2003 the Reds were a shell. Time to start a new game!

Good stuff though, I'm hooked and am enjoying it.

Rolen wins NL Third Baseman Gold Glove Award
Cincinnati - Scott Rolen played 158 games in 2006. His 61 double plays and .976 fielding average as a third baseman helped him earn the 2006 Natioanl League Gold Glove. Defensively, Scott is a superior third baseman. Over 158 games in 2006 he made 390 assists with his reliable arm.

Dunn Wins NL Left Feilder Gold Glove
Cincinnati - Outstanding defensive play earned Adam Dunn the National League Left Feilder Gold Glove. He played in 159 games for the Reds, averaging one assist every eight games.

Big trade was WMP to the A's for Rich Harden. Automatically became the no. 1. Also Milton and Wilson pitched well with the rotation being Harden, Milton, Harang, Reynolds and Wilson. The other issue is you have to sign long term deals at the beginning of the season otherwise the price rises exponentially and even fringe and bench players want a ton of money. Wno the division in the first season and came third the next. But having heaps of trouble with finances.

I've been playing this game quite a bit and have simmed out to the 2010 season. Wily Mo Pena managed to hit 67 homeruns in the last season. The kicker is, he only played 128 games before getting hurt! Dunn hit 53 I think that year. BJ Syzmanski turned into a skilled CF while Jay Bruce never advanced past AA skill level (ha!). Thomas Pauly never achieved high ratings but managed to pull off a 1.8 ERA one year and won the Cy Young. Whoda thunk it?

Is there similar baseball simulation software for the Mac? Or any kind of baseball software for Mac OS X that anyone knows of?

The new version of OOTP has an OSX port.

Just for fun, where are they now, 2016 edition:

C David Ross - Career .252 journeyman catcher, current free agent

2B Brandon Phillips - Never played more then 58 games after leaving Cincinnati, backup 2B for Florida

SS Felipe Lopez - Took a nosedive after being traded, currently a servicable starting SS for Atlanta, hit .259/.337/.432 in 2015

3B Edwin Encarnacion - One of the most reliable 3B in the league for the Reds and the Pirates, hit between 13-18 HR every season from 2007-2015 while batting between .274-.313. All Star in 2013

LF Adam Dunn - At 36 he has 551 career HR and a carrer .279/.431/.549 hitter. Hit 70 homers in 2007, but since then has averaged around 35. Still a Red, and earning $14.95 million. MVP in 2007 and GG winner in 2014 at 1B.

CF Ken Griffey Jr. - Retired in 2013 with 659 HR and 2941 hits

OF Chris Denorfia/Jay Bruce - Both mediocre backups

CF Drew Stubbs - Currently one of the best players in baseball. Since 2011 he has hit 56,38,48,38,and 36 HR. Still a Red, earning $13 million. 2011 MVP, 5-time GG winner

RF Austin Kearns - Great player, currently an Angel, has 368 HR at the age of 35.

SP Travis Wood - Possible the best pitcher in baseball, going 30-2 in 2011

SP - Homer Bailey, never made it as a starter, bullpen fodder
