    Virtual Baseball

    I may be saying this wrong, but about a month ago I read in a forum about a site where you build your own organization and have like your own season. I was wondering if anybody knew what I was talking about.

    "And why do false truths persist, getting passed down the decades as if they were fact? It comes back to the same point: People believe things that are wrong because, individually, people rarely investigate their own beliefs, particularly when what they believe makes sense intuitively. Even more so when those around them agree with them." -K.F.

    You can do something like this with simleague baseball or baseball dynasty at whatifsports.com.

    There are free mini seasons and full seasons for about $10 bucks. If you win the WS you get prize points which can be used for stuff like Amazon.com gift cards. The points from winning a league are worth about $20 I believe.

    I play simleague and love it And 3 of my last 5 teams have won the WS.

    Cha ching! $$$$$$$$$$ :o)

    OOTP is the best game I've ever played. I strongly encourage every fan to buy it. So many options.

    This game is so damn addictive. You just ruined his next few weeks.

    I played through the 1990 season , Sabo went out with an injury in June, still managed to make it do the World Series and the A’s happened to make it also...lost four games to two.

    I also the rewrote history: W ent back to 1999, didn't’t acquire KGJ, increased the payroll by 12.5 million a year (what we would have paid Griffey), beat the Padres in the 2005 NLCS only to lose in the seventh game of the World Series to the I beat the Yankees in 07 though.

    I also started a season as the 1920 Reds. First year was rough, but as I went on I said screw it and gave in to the temptation to draft and trade for every young future hall of gamer I could acquire. Won every World Series from 1941-1948 before I just started another franchise.

    Also, a bizarre side effect of OOTP is getting so sucked into the game you keep forgetting players traded in the game weren't traded in real life. "Why is MLB Network talking as if Daniel Murphy is still playing for the Mets? The Red Sox traded for him weeks ago!" Or looking at the schedule before the session streets and thinking "That interleague series against the Mariners should be easy since they traded Felix to the Cubs and started rebuilding."

    I'm ashamed to admit this happened at least five times.

    Sounds like a lot of fun, but it also sounds pretty easy to win once you get the hang of it, which is the problem with most computer games. In SimLeague baseball your competing against other baseball nuts, not against some AI. It aint easy, as you will find out f you play.

    Nope. My 80 million cap teams got beat by 90 million cap teams. My next project is a TOC win. :-) I didn't know that the TOC salary cap was 90 million. :-(

    Its pretty hard unless you're the Yankees or using your Back to the Futureish sports knowledge to game historic seasons. You can also set a salary cap, or play in completely fictional leagues. It's as hard or as easy as you want to make it...but there are also online leagues if that's more your style. It's flexible enough where I'm having a hard time thinking of something you can't...for instance, I'm 50/50 on whether there's an All-Time Fantasy draft mode where you can select any player from history. I believe I played ina league that did that, but switched everyone's names so you couldn't tell who was who unless you looked at their career stats, but I fouls be mistaken...honestly, if you're a baseball fan its worth at least checking out the demo and fooling with it for a few days. Its a very very deep game even without using mods.
