statis pro baseball league   1 comment

i played a spring training game last night.  my Brooklyn Beez took on the Roswell UFOs.  it was a great pitcher’s duel.  it gave me a good idea of where my strengths were and what weaknesses i need to either hide or minimize.

my lineup was pretty strong (i thought).

  1. davey lopes, 2b
  2. bert campaneris, ss
  3. manny sanguillen, c
  4. willie stargell, lf
  5. joe rudi, 1b
  6. elliott maddox, cf
  7. graig nettles, 3b
  8. jesus alou, rf
  9. don sutton, p

the problem i had during the game was my opponents pitcher … vida blue.  our league is using the 1974 set of statis pro advanced and blue can dominate a game like nobody’s business.  but sutton is no slouch and we ended up with a terrific pitcher’s duel.

play ended after 12 full innings with the score still knotted at 1-1.  obviously if it were a league game we would have continued on.  since it was just spring training, we called it there to “prevent injuries”.  the game was played ONLINE in an AIM chat room and we used Skype to help move the game along.  at nine innings completed we were about 50 minutes into play.  the 12 innings lasted an hour and 15.  not bad considering there was a lot of managerial maneuvering with eight pitchers brought into the game and about ten pinch hitters.

great game and i’m really looking forward to the upcoming 40 game season.  we start play in just six days!

hey, on another note, my son got me hooked on the following videos … i hope you find this particular one as funny as i did.
