Rewriting Cubs history.........

Ok, so, we have been having a very interesting thread in historical about the Cubs and their apparent ability to either win the WS in OOTP, or the, heaven forbid (just kidding here), that it is hardcoded that the Cubs never win.

My experience with a personal dynasty that has since went by the way side, not only could they win, they did it twice between 1994 and 2002 when I decided to move on because of some unpleasantness I was experiencing with the overall play of said dynasty.

The debate rages on and, i do apologize for my memory, it was decided that two new dynasties would be started (not in any agreement but in a general sort of way through the posts) and I decided it I would see what I can do, starting in 1901 and see if it is possible to manage the Cubs/Orphans and rewrite history by making them the strongest franchise in the history of MLB or at least a lot better than they are now.

With that in mind, I am unsure how I am going to do this. I hardly ever play my games out, get a little unhappy with the games and how they play out, but that is another story altogether. I am thinking about doing a month at a time, posting monthly results and other interesting things along the way.

I am new to this, but have read a ton of these here and most of you are so much better at this than I am probably gonna be. But I will do my best to justice to a team that has a very storied tradition even though they havent been important to the league (not very consist and very few appearances in any playoffs since before my great grandparents were born.)

I am going to use the set up I almost always use. I plan to use the Spritz database for 14 and will have the players imported to the teams they were originally on. Evolution of the world will be the same as history. Although free agency may come in a bit sooner than before.

I am going to start the world with MLB, AAA, AA, A levels and will not require full minors. The right to refuse minor league assignment and the 40 man roster will not be used as I hate that rule. Will use the real minor teams and may go to full minors later but for now, will be like the big leagues.

Scouting on normal settings, coaches on (although it is sometimes just an annoyance and I see no real reason to have them).

Promotion and demotions on aa and a levels will happen at the end of the year but aaa will be used for injury replacements and for call ups. I have been experimenting with this and find it a bit better for my experience.

I think that about covers it all. I plan to set this up tonight, tomorrow morning and will hope to get some screenshots posted tomorrow.

I hope it is enjoyable.

Pitching, Pitching and lack of Pitching could be a big, big problem for the Orphans as we move forward. The injury to Eason happened on April 27th, so we wont see him back till late August. THIS is gonna be a struggle to be better than the RL Orphans. But time will tell.

Raymer, Dolan, Hartzel and Delahamtu are only bright spots so far for the hitters. Gonna need my offense to pick it up a bunch if we are gonna get on a roll.

MAY 1901:

Not much better this month, going 11-16, more wins but more losses and staking claim to last.

MAY NEWS:

-Pirates lose P Sam Leever for 2-3 months.
-Tigers lose Kid Nance for 8 months.
- Senators lose C Mike Grady for 6 weeks.


Not much league wise happening. But, the dog days are coming, maybe the league and my Cubs will heat up with the warmer weather.

Mal Eason returned middle of the month and promptly won two games to even his record. Pitching still needs a lot of help. I can see how in real life this team only required seven more years to win a WS.

As for the hitters, Dolan, Delahanty, Raymer, Hartzel and Green are doing what they can, but its just not enough. Too many below .250 hitters but unfortunately, not a lot of talent to work with, what I have I have for this year. Hopefully things will get better.


If anyone wants any info, just ask and I will do my best to get you what you want. I thoroughly enjoy this and love to talk about baseball. TO those following along, thanks and I hope you enjoy the ride.

JUNE Report:

Well, things are really not looking good in Chi-town so far. After an 8-18 June, the Orphans are pretty much playing for pride and trying to get back to some semblance of respectability:

June News:

- White Sox lose CF Dummy Hoy for 4 weeks.
- Tom Hughes throws a shut for the Orphans, beating Giants 1-0.
- Tigers trade C Sports McAlister to Beaneaters for 3B Bobby Lane and RF Fred Crolius.
- Reds SP Amos Rusie gets 250th win.
- Brewers lose P Tully Sparks for 6 months.
- Pirates SP Rube Waddell hurls No-Hitter against Giants, winning 14-0, walking 2 and striking out 5.
- Senators trade P Win Mercer to Americans for P Antonio Flores.
- Beaneaters lose CF Billy Hamilton for 4 weeks.
- Giants lose CF George Davis for 7 months.


It looks like the injury bug has decided to take on the outfields of the league and take out some players. First NO-NO for the dynasty and overall, league is shaping up nicely.
