My investigations continue.

For this simulation, I chose the 1920 White Sox. The Sox had a very stable pitching staff that year, which is ideal for testing the OOTP pitching model. The Sox staff...

I'd be interested in seeing your results, but I have to wonder about the utility of such a spreadsheet. After all, it's not like the 47 Irish-born players in major-league history...

Can you explain what you mean by "start up the game?" Any time you start a new game, the game will use the world default file that is in the data file. In order to have an existing game use an...

That's why this situation is so mystifying. OOTP usually scores RBIs correctly, even in complicated cases, but this one is so easy and yet the game totally boots it. As I mentioned above, I can...

I never knew that. Must be a new feature, or at least new-ish. But then I don't really pay attention to owners that much.

And are you suggesting that Marge Schott wasn't a beautiful person?

I complained about this to the developers in March of last year. Didn't do any good. And it shouldn't depend on which skin you use - the schedule grid should be legible in all skins.
