Yeah, I remember before joining the forums I read the Sluggers and thought it was great.

But I had never seen a log focused solely on the players before so I was like "why not"

And POOF! 9 months later, the Stranglers were born.

Or something like that. :P

When I do a team of created players, I usually edit existing (but not real) players to get B or C potential guys.

I am a little confused about these last couple of posts re potential. Are there some players who max out at level D or C no matter how much they train on certain things? I really thought every player could improve in all aspects until they reach a certain age, Although I definitely see some players seem to take forever to train up on certain aspects.

I believe they are talking about MLB: The Show

I think that your difficulty was still a little low, like, if you're rolling with those stats on powerful, 0.0 that's crazy

My following criticisms include the Gunmen, Stranglers, Slayers (take it easy with the names, guys :P ), and Eagles logs:

1. I don't like logs that don't have the game's default rosters. 2 expansion teams are okay and easy to follow, but 30 teams is too much.
2. Like Skittles said earlier, a couple of these logs have too much story with a team on the side.

1. The log has almost entirely default rosters, save for the expansion teams and maybe 50 other players.
2. I've said it before, the Gunmen are definitely not "on the side". Ever since page 8 of my log, there have definitely been way more team-related updates than story updates, and I do every single game.

Consider my Alaska Ice Wolves log part of this.

I don't like that you don't have a | or a : in between season log and Alaska ice wolves.

Otherwise it's had a nice start so far.

I like PP27's Ice Wolves log, it's very clean and he's done a good job in keeping it fair and his game updates look very good.

Hey, thanks for the compliment! :P I use ChiCub's Royals log as an inspiration, while adding my own take with a newspaper-like format.

I figured it would be cool to get this going again. I enjoyed this thread a lot, personally.

I probably should have bumped this a bit earlier when there were some more logs going on, but there's still a nice amount of them going on at the moment.

So anyways, criticize the *(censored)* out of my Blue Jays log.
