    drummerJ99 got a reaction from Chris in Rise of the Buccos | A Pittsburgh Pirates Dynasty (OOTPGO)   
    With OOTP GO being released this week, I figured I needed to make a dynasty on it. Think I'll keep up to date and have more fun with it then OOTP on desktop, as if I'm home I'm normally playing The Show and not OOTP. With my local AAA Indy Indians being triple A affiliate of the Pirates, decided to start a dynasty with Pittsburgh.
    (PITTSBURGH, PA) --- With the change in weather, it's time for another season in the MLB. The Pirates who haven't made the playoffs since 2015 and has only made the playoffs 3 times since 1992, announced changes the hiring of a new GM. Fans haven't had much to cheer about for a long time in Pittsburgh, management is hoping that changes soon.
    Starting Rotation:

    The Pirates will be lead by 24 year old Mitch Keller. Keller only played 5 games last season for the Pirates, going 1-1 with a 2.93 ERA. In 2019 he started 19 games in AAA Indianapolis, accumulating a 7-5 record with a 7-5 record.

    The player to watch could be 21 year old Luis Oviedo. The question will be whether the young kid can make the leap straight to the majors, has not played higher then A ball before this season.

    The fielders will be lead by 24 year old third baseman, Ke'Bryan Hayes. The outfield could be the weak link for the Pirates.
    The Buccos start the season with 6 games vs the Chicago Cubs (3 away, 3 at home), with a 3 game series at the Cincinnati Reds in between the 6 Cubs games.

    Trade between Tampa Bay and Boston
    Multiple sources are reporting that Tampa Bay and Boston have agreed in principle to a swap that will send: Blake Coleman, LW, 28 to the Bruins with:
    3rd Round Draft Pick (Boston), 2021 NHL Entry Draft joining the Lightning.
    Tampa Bay’s general manager would not confirm the trade, but a team representative close to the negotiations said the deal is official and is now only awaiting approval from the league.
    Matt Duchene has Racked Up 600 Points
    Matt Duchene now has 600 points in the NHL. The centre reached this accomplishment in yesterday’s win with his Nashville Predators against the New York Islanders. His stats line for the night was 1 goals and 1 assists for 2 points in 20:41 minutes of ice time in the Nashville 7-2 win over New York.
    Trade between Tampa Bay and New York
    The Tampa Bay Lightning have made a deal sending: Braydon Coburn, LD, 35 to the New York Rangers for: 3rd Round Draft Pick (NewYork), 2021 NHL Entry Draft
    Both sides are said to be pleased with the way the trade worked out.

    Mighty Ducks pick up shootout win
    The Detriot Red Wings jumped out to a early 2-0 lead in the 1st period. Erik Haula and Filip Hronek both scored their first goals of the season. Vladislav Namestnikov got his first assist of the season on the Haula goal and Danny DeKeyser got his first assist on the Hronek goal.
    The Mighty Ducks would get back to within one with just under 7 minutes remaining in the first period when Ryan Getzlaf was able redirect a Silfverberg shot to sneak one past Jimmy Howard. Jakob Silfverb (2) and Rickard Rakell (3) got the assists.
    The 2nd period featured only one goal, when 25 year old winger Danton Heinen scored his 7th of the season. The lone assist went to Adam Henrique, his 5th of the season. The teams would remain stalemate throughout the 3rd period and go into overtime tied at 2.
    And it would take 3 rounds of the shootout for either team to get one past the opposing goalie when Danton Heinen scored and Tyler Bertuzzi was unable to match him. The Mighty Ducks would take the 3-2 win.
    The Mighty Ducks have now won 7 straight games. When head coach Dallas Eakins was able his thoughts on the 7-0 start he said “It’s a long season of ebbs and flows. We will lose one soon and then more then that. We just have to look at the long term future.”

    Mighty Ducks double up Islanders

    We have no official numbers but I would guess the exits saw alot of action after the 1st period. The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim saw themselves with a 5-0 lead after the first 20 minutes. It started just 1:15 into the game when Derek Grant scored his 2nd of the season with both teams 5 on 5. Maxime Comtois (2) and Kodie Curran (2) picked up the assists. 58 seconds later both Comtois and Curran would pick up assists again, this time on a Carter Rowney goal, his first of the season. It would take another 9 minutes before another goal. This time it was Kodie Curran getting his 1st of the season with the assists going to Derek Grant (3) and Rickard Rakell (4).
    At the 14:39 mark Josh Manson would score a shorthanded goal, with the assist going to Hampus Linholm (1). It was the first goal of the year for Manson. With just 2 seconds remaining in the 1st, Ryan Getzlaf would score his 4th of the season with the assist going to Kevin Shattenkirk (2).
    The Islanders would get 2 goals back when Josh Bailey got his 1st of the season and Anthony Beauvillier scored his 5th. The Ducks would add another at the 19:34 mark with Nicolas Deslauriers scoring his 1st of the season.
    The Islanders would add one midway through the 3rd period but Mighty Ducks take the 6-3 win. Ilya Sorokin started the game in net for the Islanders and lasted 39:35 before being pulled in exchange for Semyon Varlamov. Sorokin allowed 6 goals on 31 shots. Varlamov stopped all 7 shots he faced. John Gibson for the Mighty Ducks stopped 30 of 33.

    Shea Weber has Reached 1000 GP
    Shea Weber now has 1000 games played in the NHL. The defenceman reached this milestone in yesterday’s loss with his Montreal Canadiens against the
    Minnesota Wild. His stats line for the night was 0 assists and 0 goals for 0 points in 25:27 minutes of ice time in the Montreal loss, 4-2 in Minnesota.
    Flyers Claim D Mikko Lehtonen From Waivers
    Mikko Lehtonen’s (2.0/2.0) National Hockey League career will continue in Philadelphia.
    The Philadelphia Flyers claimed the 26-year-old defenceman today, although it remains unclear what his role and playing time will be with the club.
    Agostino Doesn’t Clear Waivers, Claimed by Stars
    The Dallas Stars have claimed Kenny Agostino (2.0/2.0) off waivers. The 28 year old LW has 1 goal and 1 assist in his solo game in the AHL this season.
    Trade between Buffalo and Arizona
    The Sabres and Coyotes have been engaged in a little wheeling and dealing. They have just concluded a trade with: Curtis Lazar, C, 25 (2.0/2.0) going to Arizona in exchange for:
    Rights to Elliot Ekefjärd, RW, 18 (0.5/2.0).
    Rangers give Mighty Ducks first loss of season

    Ryan Getzlaf set a new NHL record, with the quickest goal to open a game in NHL history. Beating Merlyn Phillips and (1926-27) and Doug Smail (1981-82) former record of 5 seconds by scoring just 4 seconds into the game. That ties the 3 previous fastest any period; Claude Provost (2nd period, 1957-58), Denis Savard (3rd period, 1985-86) and James van Riemsdyk (2nd period, 2013-14). The lone assist on the goal for Getzlaf was Rickard Rakell, his 5th of the season.
    Filip Chytil would tie it at the 16:55 mark with his 1st of the season, on the power play. Assists went to Adam Fox (2) and Artemi Panarin (8). The Rangers would make it a 2 goal lead in the 2nd period when Filip Chytilk would score his 2nd of the game with assist to Artemi Panarin (9). Just 45 seconds after that goal, Kaapo Kakko (3) would make it 3-1 Rangers. Mika Zibanejad (6) and Pavel Buchnevich (3) with the assists.
    Adam Fox (2) would score the lone goal in the 3rd period to make it 4-1 Rangers. Mika Zibanejad (7) and Pavel Buchnevich (4) with the assists.
    Igor Shesterkin picked up the win, stopping 25 of 26 shots. John Gibson take his first loss, stopping 38 of 42.

    With Franchise Hockey manger 7 being released this past week, it was time for a new Dynasty. Hopefully one I actually make it a few seasons into. My original thought was doing a "what if" 1979 season. What if the NHL took all 7 WHA teams, including Wayne Gretzky's Indianapolis Racers. But that's gonna take alot more time to set up with logos and rosters. So for the time being, I'm gonna start with a modern day NHL dynasty. Please welcome back, the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.   Anaheim announces changes

    In a surprise move the Anaheim Ducks are making multiple changes in the organization. Up first is the team name and branding. For the first time since the 2005-2006 season the team will once again be called the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. They will also be reverting back to their inaugural logos and jerseys. Anaheim won the Stanley Cup the first year they dropped the “Mighty” but they have not been to the Stanley Cup Finals in the past 13 seasons since.
    The Mighty Ducks also announced a new GM in the same press conference. After back to back seasons of not qualifying for the playoffs and getting swept by in-state rival the San Jose Sharks the last time they did make the playoffs, ownership announced it was time to look for new or in this case old blood.
    Taking over the GM responsibilities for the newly renamed Mighty Ducks will be a very familiar face for Duck fans, the teams 1st ever draft pick and 4th overall in 1993, Paul Kariya. Kariya played for the Ducks for 9 seasons from 1994-2003.
    Changes in AHL affiliate for the Mighty Ducks

    In other news the the team announced they have also changed their AHL affiliation and have cut ties with the San Diego Gulls, who have been their affiliate since 2015. The Mighty Ducks have annoucned they are bringing back the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks to the AHL. Cincinnati was the affiliate from 1997-2005.
    The Mighty Ducks open preseason tomorrow night against instate rivals San Jose Sharks. The Sharks finished 8th in the Pacific last season, going 29-36 and failing to qualify for the playoffs.

    The Charlotte Hornets have not won more then 36 games since they won 48 in the 2015-2016 season. And they have not reached the playoffs since that season, and have only finished with a winning percentage better then .450 one season since then.
    The Charlotte Hornets announced today they have parted ways with Mitch Kupchak, who to be fair has only been in that position since April 8th 2018. In his place they have agreed to terms with 40 year old Indiana native Sam Fisher. Fisher played college ball at Indiana State before playing 2 years over in Europe.
    “I’m excited for the opportunity” said Fisher at the press conference today, “I have lofty expectations for myself. I want and expect to win to bring Charlotte their first championship.” Fisher wasn’t brave enough to guarantee or promise how soon that will happen. When asked what his first order of business was, he said “getting ready for the draft coming up.”

    The pretty much unknown Fisher The Charlotte Hornets will have the 3rd pick in the upcoming draft. The WSSN mock draft has them taking 19 year old SG Anthony Edwards from Georgia.

    The mock draft ended up being right, as the Charlotte Hornets selected SG Anthony Edwards with the 3rd pick in the 1st round. Edwards will fill a hole the Hornets have at SG, as the Hornets only had 22 year old Malik Monk on the roster. With the 2nd round pick the Hornets selected PF Tyler Bey from Georgia and with the final pick the Hornets selected PF Yoeli Childs from BYU.

    Steph Curry put on a show for 17,702 in attendance at the Chase Center and the millions watching around the world. Curry would play 40 minutes and put up 52 points on 21-33 shooting and 10-19 from 3. Even with all that, the Hornets still kept the game close.
    The Warriors would lead by 9 at the end of the 1st quarter before Charlotte would outscore Golden State 33-17 in the 2nd quarter to go into half with the lead 57-50. IT was a back and forth game the 2nd half. With Golden State outscoring Charlotte 59-47 in the 2nd half.
    Klay Thompson would be the only other Warrior to end the game in double digit scoring, scoring 16 points in 33 minutes of action. Devonte Graham would put on a show for any Hornets fans watching, as he’d score 37 points in 39 minutes of action. He’d go 13-21 from the field, while shooting 8-14 from beyond the arc. Center Cody Zeller would fish the game with 11 points and 9 rebounds.
    The Hornets would have 2 players coming off the bench score 14 points in Chinanu Onuaku & Terry Rozier. The Hornets have 2 days off before finishing the west coast swing in Phoenix versus the Suns (2-2, 1-1 Home).
    The Pheonix Suns made it look easy when they hosted the Charlotte Hornets tonight. They would get out to a 28 point lead at one point before actually winning by 24.
    Glen Robinson III would lead the Hornets with 14 points, while only playing 16 minutes.Cody Zeller would add 12 points with 6 rebounds in 22 minutes. The Hornets bench would see alot of playing time in this game, with rookie playing his season high of 29 minutes. He’s also score his season high of 13 points in 29 minutes.
    Devin Booker lead all players, scoring 30 points with 10 assists and 3 rebounds in 34 minutes. Ricky Rubio would also have 10 assists, while scoring 18 points in his 38 minutes. Mikal Bridges led the Suns bench scoring 15 points in 22 minutes.
    Maybe the Hornets expected it to be a easy win but the Pistons proved no team in this league is a easy win. Devonte’ Graham continued his strong start to the season, scoring 26 points on 9-18 shooting from the field, while going 4-11 from beyond the arc. He’d also grab 4 rebounds and get 7 assists, while playing 30 minutes. Center Cody Zeller added 12 points and 5 rebounds.
    Terry Rozier continued his strong start coming off the bench, he’s averaging 15 points a game with 4.8 assists. Tonight he scored 12 points in 18 minutes, while grabbing 3 rebounds and 3 assists.
    24 year old Luke Kennard led the Pistons, scoring 21 points in 30 minutes. He went a perfect 9-9 from the free throw line and also had 4 rebounds and 3 assists. Derrick Rose had 7 assists while also scoring 19 points in 33 minutes. Terence Davis led the bench for the Pistons, scoring 12 points in 15 minutes.

    Next week the Charlotte Hornets play 3 games, with 2 of those being here in Charlotte at the Spectrum Center, starting with the Brooklyn Nets on Monday, followed by the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday. Before they head north of the border on Thursday to visit the Toronto Raptors.

    Just finished 1st season at Indiana State. I've been tracking this dynasty over at Wolverine Studios forum but figured I'd start tracking it here as well. So I'll pick up here just after the NIT and NCAA Tournaments.

    For fans watching tonight, it looked like Indiana State might finally get the edge against Valparaiso (Valpo has beaten ISU twice this season) and the Sycamores would go into half with a 7 point lead, leading 40-33. But as has been the case alot this season, the Sycamores would allow their opponent to come back. Valpo would out score Indiana State by 10 in the 2nd half, 51-41 to pick up the 3 point win.
    Indiana State would have their chance to tie it with time running out, as Junior PG Jeff Davis would attempt a 3 with 2 seconds remaining and was unable to hit the mark. Davis probably wasn’t the best person to take that shot, shooting .311 beyond the arc on the season. SR SG Jason Stanley (who’s still fighting back spasms) was shooting .423 beyond the arc and if fully healthy would have been the better option.
    Freshman C Rashif Murray once again led the Sycamores in scoring, this time with 12 points on 6-7 shooting in 20 minutes of action. Aforementioned Senior SG Jason Stanley would also score 12 points with 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Junior SG Clifford Walker had one of his best outings, matching his season high coing off the bench and scoring 11 points and 4 rebounds.
    Sophmore SG Carl Graham led the Crusaders with 19 points with 5 rebounds and 2 assists.

    It seems fitting that the team that led the Missouri Valley Conference all season would end up winning the tournament. Northern Iowa got out to a commanding 14 point lead at halftime before Bradley would make a game of it in the 2nd half.
    Senior PF Jamel Marvray would lead the Panthers with 20 points, 3 rebounds and 3 blocks in his 26 minutes of game time.

    For me personally I've always hated sports manager style games. I always wanted to "control the action". So I was a big franchise gamer on the console. But as console gaming shifted more and more away from single player and franchise mode into the pay to win and online crap. I've have no choice but to move on from those games to more realistic options. To me nothing compares to ESPN NFL 2k5 and their franchise mode. Should have known back then it was gonna be all downhill from there.

    Devonte’ Graham made the statement on why rookie Anthony Edwards shouldn’t see the starting rotation soon, as Graham led the Hornets tonight scoring 21 points in 30 minutes of action. He was 7-14 from the field and 5-10 from beyond the arc. He would add 4 rebounds and 9 assists in the process. Cody Zeller added in 16 points in 31 minutes of action, while grabbing 4 rebounds.
    It wasn’t all great for the Hornets though, SF Miles Bridges would injure his foot and will probably miss 5 days. Before the injury he had a great night as well, scoring 14 while grabbing 10 rebounds.
