Ouch. That was just uncalled for.



So after a completely disastrous second season in my fictional league where both a less than stellar lineup collided head on with some massive injuries, the game hits me with this message.

That just hurts...

LOL, the only comfort you can take from this is the expectation that you will be better next year.

So much for personality. Albert Belle, a complete nut job was never traded and was the highest paid player in the game, twice!

If you have "firing" turned on you better have more success next year or you will be peddling your resume!

By the way, I've seen that message many times, so I know of what I speak!

I think those messages should be done away with. They don't seem to be accurate (I remember winning manager of the year one season with a score like that) and you need to win it all to get a great score most of the time.

For one thing, it does not take into account injuries, as far as I know. You can recruit and trade great players but then get a score like that when several of them are on the DL for long periods of time.

Just a silly throw-in that should be taken out of the game. Or explain it better, show the analysis, and fine-tune it to seem less arbitrary.

If he had firing turned on, perhaps* he wouldn't have received the message.

I dont even look anymore what my score is. I dont know what all factors into the score but it seems inaccurate. Go 92-70 finish 19 GB, have a score of 39. Win the WS get a score of 100, of course. Lose the WS get a score of 70.

I've hung the ole #1 quite a few times. I'm three for three with my current expansion team.

The part I love is how personal the scolding of the last sentence is. "This is just a terrible score Bob". In other words why the hell did you even bother playing this game! I find it amusing but have never measured my OOTP savvy by it.

Wouldn't give too much for the score. Most of the time a losing record nets you a 1 score, no matter how bad your team was to begin with.

In 12, even losing the World Series once got me record of ... I could swear it was even over 100.
