    Nice.  I'm now 65-64 (yes, I've been playing a LOT...), 3 games out of the 2nd Wild Card.  My offense is good (4th or 5th in most categories), but my pitching continues to be bottom-of-the-barrel, even after trading Adell for Aaron Nola.  No matter who I put on the mound, they just get pounded.  I've tried adjusting settings, etc., but the results are the same.

    I'm 52-53, just sort of muddling along.  Got Trout back after 4+ "weeks", only to see his batting average drop 60 points since his return.
    This is the first time I've played OOTP, and while it's a good time waster, I'm still not sure it's very "accurate" in terms of a simulator.  Other than like Gerrit Cole, it seems to be impossible to get any consistency with pitching--and I'm still finding that there are way too many random small events (e.g., wild pitches, infield hits, balks, etc.).
    That said, I don't have much else to do, so I'll keep playing. 🤣

    I've played 16 games now.  It's fun, but seems like there are too many passed balls, wild pitches, hits-by-pitch, infield hits, and pop ups.

    I started an Angels team a few days ago.  They're currently 3-6, in last place in the division, and Mike Trout is out for 1-2 weeks.  Not exactly a great start...
    I tried to extend Andrelton Simmons, but he kept asking for a 7-year deal, so I shipped him, Fletcher, and $10M to the Nationals for Trea Turner and Howie Kendrick.  🙂
    EDIT: Also, Kyle Tucker from the Astros has hit 6 HR off of the Angels in the 6 games I've played against them so far.  Fun...

    About a year ago, I left full-time work in entertainment market research to work as a consultant. Now, a large portion of my work has evaporated due to theaters closing and studios delaying the release of their movies.  (In addition to home-based work, I moderate focus groups and screenings for movies--and that work obviously isn't happening right now.)
    In addition to the work slowdown, I'm also dealing with kidney stones right now.  Fun times! But at least I'm still alive.

    Literally have no recollection of that.  Maybe it's just b/c I'm not an absolute slavish, "Angels can do no wrong!" fan?  I'm objective enough to appreciate when another team is playing well, a player is having a good year, etc.  But, yeah, don't even remember you calling me that.
    I grew up as a Braves fan (born in Hog Mountain, GA!), then also became an Angels fan when I was 6 or 7, after I got 7 Angels cards in my first pack of baseball cards.  I even named my dog after Reggie Jackson, during his tenure with the Angels.

    I've already detected one problem Two guys oversee KLAA and neither one fires Roger Lodge.   Dennis Kuhl Chairman Dennis Kuhl begins his 16th season with the Angels after joining the Club on November 10, 2003. He was initially appointed as the Angels' seventh President before a promotion to Chairman on November 14, 2009.   Kuhl's focus centers on renewed efforts in the area of civic affairs and community outreach. Kuhl also oversees the Angels' flagship radio station KLAA AM830.

    He has created a stronger, more viable partnership with Los Angeles-based radio and television partners, and oversees KLAA AM830, the radio flagship of the Angels.
