Ottoneu Lockdown League Thread, September 2020

Website is updated through 9/6. Real-time sim is going.

Memphis and Albuquerque have a “who scores more runs tonight” bet, both GM/managers have bet on their own teams.

New save file is up. Website updated through 9/7. Expanded rosters are now available. Your active roster has 40 spots instead of 26. This is an important one, try and update if you can.

League website updated through 9/14 and new save file is up.


There are 4 teams that have kinda checked out on giving updates and I’d like to give their GMs one last chance to keep their teams or let us find replacements. I want to be clear because this is a crazy time and a lot of you are dealing with more than I can even imagine, there is absolutely no problem from me or the OOTP group if you can’t continue. This is just a silly game to pass time and lots of you have much more important things to deal with right now.

The teams that haven’t had an upload in a while are:
Milwaukee (last upload May 3) - @atlaslion
Charlotte (last upload May 6) - @minihockey8
Tucson (last upload May 7) - @mbickel97
Rochester (last upload May 8) - @eamuscatuli

If any of you want to continue, you are absolutely welcome to, but please let me know in the next 2 days. Otherwise we will go into the offseason with new GMs (or a GM search) for those teams.

I did some very rough luxury tax math. This is based on budgeted payroll, which is the only ‘publicly’ available number for each team. Your actual payroll may differ from what was budgeted by a lot.

Slack seems down so I’ll post updates here. I’m importing shortly and then will sim through 9/20. Memphis-Albuquerque have a bet on their 4-game set, each GM taking their own side in a most total runs bet.

UPDATE: Isotopes win the bet by sweeping Memphis in Memphis, 4 games in 3 days including a 15-7 19 inning game that requires further inspection. I am making reports for 9/20 now.

UPDATE: Aforementioned 15-7 19 inning game

League website is updated. Real-time is live.

OKC can clinch a postseason berth tonight with a win or a San Diego loss. An OKC win and an Austin loss will clinch the top seed in the division.

League website is updated through 9/21 and league save file is updated.

Tomorrow we will real-tim sim the last day of the regular season.

Wait, did Max Muncy beat Babe Ruth’s home run record?

He hit 62, 4 more games left I believe.

I benched him for the rest of the season so 62 it shall remain.

Cmon’ that’s like pulling a Starting Pitcher when he has a no-no and still has gas. Tho, I understand the end of season caution.

He’s day to day with a sore elbow!

understood, I did the same with a few ptichers that were day to day

Website and league save file updated. It’s 9/26 in-game. Post-season starts tomorrow. I’ll share the sim pace here once I look at the schedule and make some decisions.
