I know pretty much everyone has MLBPP 2008 and, I have it as well. But I have decided to go back to 2007 because I enjoy playing that version more than I do '08. So, My Hawaii Typhoons log, that I started in 2008 but never got off the ground will be moving to here. I have made some "adjustments" to the roster already. Namely I have cut several players I don't intend to use to make room for several success players I created for this team. I promise I did not go overboard making these players.
I made three starting pitchers and one SS. I wanted to be somewhat realistic when I made my pitchers so, I did some game research. The average *starter* in '07, between the ages of 18-22 have the following stat line: Top speed 92, Stamina B-146, Control D-130. Keeping those numbers in mind I made one starter above the average, one right on average and one below average, just to keep things eve. I don't think I went to crazy with my SS either; maybe I made him a little to good, but nothing outrageous.
I'm also not purchasing any practice upgrades during year 1. I learned from my Pelicans log that I just isn't worth buying level 1 upgrades, it's better to save points and buy level 2 or 3 down the line. Also, since you get better players in expansion mode for '07, it's not a big deal to wait.

The Typhoons will be playing in the AL West and the Las Vegas High Rollers will be in the NL west. Houston moved to the AL central.
Here is my roster:

Are all of the players (except for the ones denoted with * or #) just the default arrange-team gray-bar roster? If so, that's quite a lucky draw; I don't think I've ever seen anyone with an A or B rating on any arrange team or in any draft.

Yes, the rest of the players were all grey bar. And I did get very lucky with how good they are.

Wow.

Also, I don't think you went overboard with any of the Success players, though the SS Keoka is close, especially if he has any big-time blue abilities.

Typhoons call up Piersoll
Baltimore- The Hawaii Typhoons have sent struggling reliever James Hiatt to AAA Kona and have called up Adam Piersoll to take his place in the pen.
Typhoons manager Scott0530 stated the club wants to be patient with their young talent, but Hiatt's 9 earned runs in just 3.2IP this season, 22.1 ERA, is just to much for the club to be patient with.
Piersoll will join the club for their next game in Baltimore.

Typhoons, Mets complete trade

Anaheim- The Hawaii Typhoons and New York Mets have completed a trade today that will send minor league OF Aaron Goodwin ( 3,E7,D104,C11,E7,C11,D9) to New York in exchange for Mets minor league pitcher Mike Pelfrey. Pelfrey will slot into the number 5 spot in the Typhoon's rotation behind Jamie Wright, pushing Bruce Fikac to a long relief/spot start role, and Henry Oviedo will move from the 6th spot to the Hawaii pen. To make room on the roster for Pelfrey, the Typhoons have sent down reliever Kenji Kinoshita to AAA Kona.

Hawaii Typhoons (Wright 1-1, 4.30) @ Minnesota Twins (Cameron 0-1, 9.00) 4/23

Baltimore Orioles (Bedard 0-4 4.61) VS. Hawaii Typhoons (Gordon 4-0 1.21) 5/11

Honolulu- James Gordon had four wins coming into tonight's game against Baltimore, and certainly should have more. Gordon's ERA of 1.21 beginning play last night is second best in the majors, but, it seems like when he starts, the Typhoons offence gets brain lock. And it looked as though that was going to happen again.
Gordon and Bedard locked in a scoreless pitcher's duel till Hernandez led off the Baltimore 7th with a solo HR. Tiring, Gordon managed to just sneak out of the inning without allowing any other damage.
But the Typhoon bats would not allow Gordon to not have a fighting chance at the win. Lajo Keoka led off the home half of the seventh with a solo homerun and Jack Gettis followed three batters latter with a loud RBI double.
The Typhoons added two more in the eighth. After Jose Valencia singled and stole second, Keoka drove him in with an RBI single. Two batters later, Brian Kelton added an RBI single as well.
With Francisco Rosario unavailable, Ed Vosberg picked up the save closing out the ninth.

Man...Matt Belisle. I'm the Reds in my 2007 season and he was my 5th starter year one. Then he wanted 2400 and I stupidly resigned him for one season as I upgraded to All Star level difficulty...he's like a mop up man now making 2400...yuck.
