All,

Now that OSFM dropped last evening, I plan on beginning my Champschise today or tomorrow. I had previously made a post regarding this, but have decided to go in a little different direction.

The Champschise will be a heavily streamed item, rather than a regularly updated video blog. At certain points in the season I intend on doing some media content, but the more regularly updated items will come in the form of posts under the Champschise thread that I start tonight/tomorrow. I will also use what is know as a "clean screen" slider set, which eliminates a lot of the clutter on the game stream and provides a better experience in my opinion.The set is to be utilized with quick counts on. The slider set I'm using can be found here: https://forums.operationsports.com/...4s-old-guy-quick-count-sliders-show-18-a.html

In terms of team selection, I've made some adjustments to my plan. Instead of using middle of the road teams, I've decided to look at things a little differently and will be doing a rebuild/small budget franchise. Per the Show, the following teams are below the $100M mark in terms of budget:

  • Tampa Bay Rays
  • Chicago White Sox
  • Detroit Tigers
  • Minnesota Twins
  • Oakland Athletics
  • Atlanta Braves
  • Miami Marlins
  • Philadelphia Phillies
  • Cincinnati Reds
  • Milwaukee Brewers
  • Pittsburgh Pirates
  • San Diego Padres

Because I'm an Indians fan, I don't want to use any other AL Central team. This eliminates a good chunk of the AL opportunities. I also do not want to utilize a team I have in the past for a franchise or currently using for my RTTS. This eliminates the Marlins, Pirates and Reds, and leaves us with the remaining teams of:

  • Tampa Bay Rays
  • Oakland Athletics
  • Atlanta Braves
  • Philadelphia Phillies
  • Milwaukee Brewers
  • San Diego Padres

So, SC community, I need your help in determining a few things:

1. What team should I use? (forum poll at the top of this page for that)
2. Should I sim any games to move things along, and if so at what frequency?
3. Any other other action items you feel need addressed.


Thanks!

I voted for Padres...they have the worst farm out of the teams listed imo, and have to build them differently with that park.


To answer question 2, what i do is play the opening game of every series, sim the second, if the series is split, I play the 3rd. If the series is 2-0 favoring either team the last game is simulated.

I say Braves or Rays. Both are in tough divisions. Braves farm is loaded. I like things to move along so we see roster moves, and trades of prospects actually work out because you play more than 1 year. I think i'll say Braves 1st and then Rays (challenge of being in division with Red Sox and Yankees) 2nd.

Those were probably the two highest on my list if I'm being honest. Part of me really wants to do an AL team since I've done two NL teams in a row for my franchises. Braves would be cool to bring back to prominence.

If nobody else votes by tonight, I'll just throw the four teams into a randomizer and let it do it's thing. Rays, A's, Braves, and Padres.
