    OOTP12 is OUT! And I highly reccommend it.

    So folks.. OOTP 12 was released today and it is AHHH-MAZZ-ING!

    I started my Reds franchise and made a few moves:

    - Traded Edgar Renteria to Oakland for OF Jeremy Barfield (AA)
    Just wanted Edgar gone. Barfield may project as a backup OF/AAAA player. We'll see. Fair trade.

    - Traded Edison Volquez, Jordan Smith and Kris Negron to Detroit for MR Daniel Schlereth, SP Drew Smyly (A), C Patrick Leyland (low A) and CF Jamie Johnson (AA).
    Edison is my least favorite Red. Not because he sucks, I just don't like his attitude. He is rated fairly decently in this game, as he should be. Smyly projects to be a potential #3 starter in the bigs in about ~3 years. Leyland has good potential, but is pretty far out. Johnson, I hope will be starting CF next season for me. Has a great eye, great glove and great speed. Schelereth is a top of the line middle reliever and is currently setting up Cordero for me. He's young and should be my Closer soon. Fair trade, I do believe. Tigers rotation is pretty crazy.

    - Traded Roman Herandnez to Los Angeles Dodgers for SS Jake Lemmerman (AA).
    Simply a salary/player dump. Love Ramon, but I wanted Mes on the big team. Lemmerman is 21 and has some mild potential. Could be a backup or utility in a few years.

    That's all the trades I made. Had to get the team how I wanted it to be to start the season.

    My lineup:
    Stubbs, CF
    Phillips, 2B
    Votto, 1B
    Bruce, RF
    Rolen, 3B
    Cozart, SS
    Hanigan, C
    Lewis, LF (Gomes vs. LHP)

    I'm going to bring Alonso up in a few weeks I imagine.

    Bench: Janish, Mes, Heisley, Cario, Gomes, Francisco.

    Rotation:
    Cueto
    Bailey
    Chapman
    Arroyo
    Leake

    Pen:
    Cordero
    Schlereth
    Bray
    Masset
    Ondrusek
    Wood



    First game of the season was INTENSE!

    Take a look:

    Fred Lewis for the win.

    I've been hooked on the iPhone version for weeks. Buying that app was one of my worst decisions ever.

    Looking at the 'new' features I actually think I'll be skipping this one, at least until the half off sale they will have a few months, nothing really ground breaking to me to make an upgrade from 11 worth it.

    It may look like not much has changed, but I can't even begin to describe how much better this version plays. I highly recommend it.

    Agreed. Better than 11 in a number of ways and it's worth the $40.

    Oh, and according to my season thus far this Heisey kid might have a little bit of power.

    He needs to pick it up for me.

    My best hitter thus far:

    Joey Votto, leading every category in the majors pretty much.

    .415 AVG, .500 OBP, 1.269 OPS, 6 HR, 13 RBI in 65 AB.

    They don't let you try it before you buy it? I downloaded it, and figured there was a trial period before you have to register it, and every option is blacked out. Don't know how they expect me to drop 40 bones sight unseen. This is why people torrent stuff.

    There is usually a demo every year. Maybe try the OOTP11 demo if there isn't a 12 yet. I've been buying since OOTP7 and it's absolutely the best game, as a baseball nerd, I've ever "experienced".

    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    So this OOTP thing is like The Show, but without actually playing the baseball games?

    I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou

    It is a text sim. You can be as hands on or off as you like from a management perspective. I play out every at bat as the manager but a lot of people sim seasons and act solely as GM. It is extremely addictive.

    So is this a lot better than Baseball Mogul or are the pretty similar. I have been playing Mogul for years now and love it. Only thing that I dont like in BM is from a GM perspective it is unrealistic with no waivers and options never coming in to play. Does this have that?
