Unfortunately due to the GM Desk issue, and the expected assistance we’re in need of, we may be delayed for about another week.  Apologies, but this is an unexpected technical system issue, and the EC is at the mercy of others timeframes.

We may be able to continue with the draft... more announcements to follow.

Trading Block / Re: Rockies Draft Picks available

Rox could still move down from 1-29 or 2-01. Since everything is down in the GM desk, send offers to me  via this message

I'd like to stay in Round 2 if i move down and pick up as many later picks as possible

I believe everyone is aware of the situating just in case someone does not know. We are working on figuring out why our GM desk is giving us an error and locking us out. We have reached out for some help and hopefully can figure it out.  Until it is corrected the draft and sims  are frozen.

Stay tuned for further updates.

Didn't want to start a new thread but can anyone get on the GM desk ?

Larry, we're having some database connectivity issues. Everything (draft, sims, etc) is on hold while we try to get things sorted out.

It seems the security token for the database had expired.  I renewed it on the server.  I'll check back in a few times today to see if things refresh.

Doesn't seem to have worked, unfortunately.
Alas, no.  I was hoping it would sync overnight.  It's actually giving the same error today.  I have some time to dig through now as well.  I looked through some of the php code and didn't see anything jump out at me, so I really hope this issue can be resolved without Bruce, but we've reached out to him as well.

We also have more teams that truly like to rebuild with lineups that most assurredly would t resemble a rebuilding real team, and that also could contribute.

Those teams also have below-replacement-level pitching, though. I don't think that's a significant factor.

But DMB+ZiPS favors pitching in a number of ways. Injured pitchers who are out for the year in real life can throw 200 innings in DMBO (and while the same is true of hitters, pitchers still get hurt a lot more). Fewer injuries also means far fewer really bad pitchers seeing the mound at all. Part-time starters or even openers can be in the rotation for the entire season. Teams can leverage elite relievers to the hilt, getting 50% more usage than in real life.

All told, I'd expect DMBO to be lower offense than MLB. Not sure exactly how much, but 12 points of OBA doesn't seem wildly unrealistic to me.
