I think I miss baseball


So I just picked up OOTP 21 on the Steam Summer Sale, and I played my first game.

 

It was a 21 inning game.  I played it pitch by pitch.

 

I used 11 pitchers, with Berrios starting, followed by Romo, Duffey, May, Rogers, Littell, Wisler, Stashak, Clippard, Dobnak, and finally Maeda.

 

The only position player that didn't play was Alex Avila.  I think Garver will rest the next game...

 

Max Kepler, Nelson Cruz, and Josh Donaldson (2) has HR's.

 

Luis Arraez went 0-8, and was the only Twin to not get a hit (asides from Cave, who only had on AB).

 

There was a total of 150 AB's, 30 Hits, 17 BB's, 47 K's, and 66 LOB.  66!

 

Crazy Moments of the game include:

 

The Twins scoring 3 runs in the top of the ninth off Liam Hendriks to tie the game.  All three were scored when Mitch Garver was at the plate, one by wild pitch, and the other two by...an infield popup single?

 

Josh Donaldson was thrown out at home in the top of the 12th.

 

The A's intentionally walked Miguel Sano who struck out 6 times in 9 PA's.  Ouch.  That worked though.

 

Matt Wisler loaded the bases in the 14th with one out.  Cody Stashak then stuck out the next two batters.  Both on full counts.  (Yes that got me fired up)

 

Moral of the Story:  I miss baseball.

 

Oh and Miguel Sano hit the game winning double to score Mitch Garver in the top of the 21st.  TWINS WIN 8-7!

Yeah, well, top this for having no life... 

 

We were able to complete our fantasy draft this spring, right around the time things were shutting down. Since we didn't have actual fantasy, my son entered our rosters into OOTP, and we simulated a full 162-game season using our fantasy rosters, followed by a full playoff schedule.

 

And thanks to today's 6-5 win in World Series Game 7, I am the champion of the Northern Indiana Rotisserie League COVID-19 Fantasy Fantasy League!

 

Danny Jansen's single plated Nick Senzel in the bottom of the sixth to give me a 6-2 lead, and I was able to hang on for the 6-5 win. "We've got grit," said Pile center fielder Ian Happ, who was named MVP of the series. "We know how to win when we have to."

The real games may be less exciting than the simulated ones...

It's analogous to the old saying that a bad day fishing is better than a good day working. (I don't fish but I still understand the sentiment.) The dullest real game is better than the most exciting simulated one. IMHO, of course.

Just got the word that Gameday staff (at least the team I'm on) will not be working any games this season at Target Field (unless something amazing happens, COVID goes away, and fans are allowed back into the stadium.) I knew that was going to be the decision, but I was holding out hope that they'd use some of us in the stands during games, so getting that communication today sucks. Still looking forward to seeing games again on TV, but still... nothing beats gameday at Target Field.

I am sorry to hear that, and agreed, the worst day at the ballpark is still better than my best day at the office
