Poll time: what should be the colloquial term for a home run hit by a pitcher?

Today's simulation: July 4-5, 1885.

Watch out for:
- Gabriel Torres ( :chupacabras:) makes his first start in a month . . . without Rodolfo Landeros, who's out for the season.

- José Talamantes ( :leones:) has an 18-game hitting streak going.

Patrons:

If you want your team to be like the 1885 :mulos:—and why shouldn't you? They're 51-26 and guaranteed to make the playoffs—you'll need them to make some good trading decisions.

And you can help them do that by voting in this poll!

Later tonight, we're hoping to release the first edition of a feature we really wanted to debut on the new site:

The Offseason Weird Injury Round-Up.

In the meantime, why not read what's already there? We promise, you'll enjoy it.

On the bright side, two more teams have joined the Shoo-in Squad:

:leones:
(this is why Isi's Vinuchos are out—they have to play the Señores nine times a year, and also, are bad)

:vejigantes:
(we knew this was coming, the question was how soon)

Show thread

As of last night, three more teams hit the Less Significant Tragic Number—i.e., they haven’t been eliminated yet, but their chances of making playoffs are nil.

:lobos:
(to be fair, with two members of the rotation sporting 4.00+ ERAs, no one expected them there)

:reyes:
(*sigh* . . . after 1.5 months of being the second-best pitching team in Hostos, too)

:caneros:
(same problem as the Lobos, plus the :maceteros: aren’t going anywhere)

TOMORROW:
In honor of the Snowman, we're mandating one :ingenieros: game every week—and we start here, against the :tortugas: in a rematch against Ángel de Haro.

(@Louisa fans: she's in the booth for that one!)

Next, it's another rematch: :mulos: vs. :guardacostas:, both of whom have superfans in the :lnp: community.

first pitch 7:00 PM!

SURPRISE:
We're going live tonight to present the 1885 Partido de Campeones, including the first broadcast Home Run Challenge!

We have literally no idea how that last part's going to go—and it's FIRST. Join us, won't you?

Going live in the next minute:

Also, shout-out to Víctor Ceballos ( :jueyeros:), the *only* left fielder picked for the Betances Campeón squad.

Show thread

For one, Luis Soler ( :piratas:), who pitched that no-hitter we broadcast a while back and has been an absolute hoss all year, isn't on the list for Hostos.

Nor is 1B Adrián Martínez ( :palomas:), who looks likely to be the first non-consecutive batting champion.

Show thread

We tried a new process to select All-Stars, since it's a simulation anyway, and . . . folks . . . we may have screwed up.

Beyond the fact that some teams got *wild* representatives, there are some players who would be steaming mad to see these lists. If they weren't dead.

What we've learned today is that not only does OOTP 21 ensure there's always a Juan Soto playing baseball, but judging by these portraits, it's the same Juan Soto.

(H/T to friend of the league Cam for letting us use the real Juan Soto's picture from his league.)

Patrons: remember to hit up the second Patron Poll. We'd really like your votes on the direction of the next few seasons!

Going live in a second to cover June 22-23, 1885.

Other than the 40-31 :electricos: and 40-32 :corsos: facing off to see who's really going to crown the Betances Sur, there's not much to see now that Heliodoro Ferrer's hit streak died.

*fan of the :navegadores:

But let's show you our very favorite chart. The :citricos:—one of the four or five teams to have never made the postseason—are currently nearly guaranteed to make it, thanks to the complete collapse of the :cafeteros: and :patriotas:.

Show thread

If you're a :navegadores: this year—and there's several reasons to be one—you really enjoyed April, when the :picudos:, who've won the division every year since 1871, looked lost at the wheel.

Now, though? Now it's a dogfight and a half.

Another one of our favorite playoff odds charts:

Look, they almost kiss!

ALSO FRIDAY:
Remember when the :mulos: got embarrassed by the :guardacostas: on air?

We do, and we've been waiting for them to have a chance at revenge.

That's this Friday, with both teams' aces on their respective mounds.

FRIDAY:
There's been a few bright spots, but in general, the :ingenieros: continue to stumble through 1885.

This weekend, they open with a rematch against Ángel de Haro of the —one of the most fun lineups in Hostos.
