    I know auction prices are too high early, and the prevailing wisdom is depressing the prices of perfect MLB Live players. I guess I'll see if he's still selling high.

    The Lumber Company continues to slowly acquire Pirates. This is made difficult by the fact that there aren't very many good ones. As a result of this questionable strategy, we're 66-71 in our Bronze League. If only I were a Yankees fan. Most are acquired through the auction house, which is made easier by the fact that every non-Pirate I draw from a pack gets sold. I've drawn three Diamond Yankees (Sanchez 91, Severino 91, Torres 91) and sold them for a combined 10.6K.

    We currently feature a starting rotation of 1990 Doug Drabek (76), 1987 Rick Reuschel (82), 1991 John Smiley (71), 2019 Jameson Taillon (80), and 2019 Trevor Williams (69). Our bullpen is a bunch of garbage that you'll care about even less than the rest of this team that you don't care about!

    The starting lineup is:

    CF 2019 Starling Marte (79)
    SS 1960 Dick Groat (78)
    DH 1925 Kiki Cuyler (82)
    RF 2000 Brian Giles (86)
    C 1975 Manny Sanguillen (80)
    LF 2019 Corey Dickerson (73)
    3B 2019 Jung-ho Kang (69)
    2B 2019 Adam Frazier (71)
    1B 1986 Lee Mazzilli (63)

    I've got bids in on 2019 Chris Archer (81), 2019 Gregory Polanco (79), and 1971 Dock Ellis (71).

    I'm at the point where I'm going days between checking on the team, but that's mainly because point accumulation is so slow.

    Do you need the players to be Pirates in the year in question, or will you sign anyone who ever played for the Pirates?
    I understand that and fully understand that and I think we had a previous President who did not understand that but I understand that and we have spoken about this before.

    I've found the auction house strategy to go better without opening packs at all.

    My Braves team is rounding out pretty nicely.

    SP: 1947 Warren Spahn (88)
    SP: 1998 Tom Glavine (86)
    SP: 1993 Steve Avery (86)
    SP: 1948 Johnny Sain (81)
    SP: 2019 Mike Soroka (79)
    CL: Mark Wohlers

    C1: 2019 Brian McCann (71)
    C2: 2019 Tyler Flowers (72)
    1B: 2019 Freddie Freeman (97)
    2B: 2019 Ozzie Albies (84)
    SS: 2019 Andrelton Simmons (80)
    UTIL: 2019 Johan Camargo (74)
    LF: 1983 Dale Murphy (82)
    CF: 2019 Ronald Acuna, Jr. (83)
    RF: 1967 Hank Aaron (91)
    4OF: 1993 David Justice (72)

    There are still guys I want to add, and some of the others have improved versions I could pick up in the future. But it's still fun.

    Only in the year in question.

    My Perfect Jimmie Foxx has a shot at getting the Triple Crown in the Bronze League. We're breezing into the playoffs, but there's one whale in the league who's 125-25 at the moment, so we aren't going to win it all.

    I hadnít check in on PT in about two weeks, and my v19 team had accumulated 20k points after being demoted to Gold for a couple of seasons. I couldnít find anyone of interest in the auction house so I decided to cash it all in on cards. 20 packs, and I only got one player rated 80 or better. OOTP appears to be done with 19.

    Batting Triple Crown: 5,800 PP - 5,000 for the achievement and a separate 400 each for the home run title and batting title. (Thanks, Peak Jimmie Foxx!)

    I wake up this morning, check my OOTP XX Perfect Team, and what do I find? That my Grand Forks Spoons are in a division with some rinky dink outfit called the Houston Hammers.

    It's on.

    I'm assuming the Hammers must be in rebuilding mode if they've been sent down to a league that you're in?
