This can be seen as me finding a reason for failure, but I sort of abandoned the season and tune the ball park back to all 1.000 for data gathering(as in how my team do on a neutral playground for a more neutral data so I know where my holes truly are) so I don't expect my team to play great against any of the OL teams. Hopefully once we are go back to serious contending mode, I can have a positive win rate against Crayon. For now, your teams are free to pound at my team for the PPs.

This rebel votes for uniformity and OL. I am surprised I did not thought about this solution so easily. "OL" certainly looks like part of a real name instead of "-OL" or the "[OL]" I suggested(and no one cared) long time ago. My pet peeve has always been that -OL just feels like too digital to be a part of a non-digital baseball club name. Another pet peeve is match report, but I am getting used to it now.

Now that this is out here in the forum, I wonder how legal it is...

Make another decision and watch for a week. Its a weird concept for us natural micromanagers to struggle with.

I think you can still make adjustment after a day or two. I used to do that(rearrange batters, adjust pitching position, change players, adjust strategy slider) and I have seen improvement for my team, but I grew tired of spending so much time micro all my teams nowadays so I rarely do that.
