is simulating the World Series and should soon rollover to Season 18.
A little bit about Schmidt
1. Balanced competition: the 5 last world series have been won by 5 different teams
(correction: 5 of the last 6)
2. Remarkably deep roster of skilled owners: 15 have won World Series, and a couple others have gotten ever so close
3. Regretfully, none of the Schmidt owners are named chrisjanning
(see #6 below)
4. We welcome newcomers: there is much active discussion in the community, via both world chat and trade chat, and newbies can usually get sound advice while learning the game; our experienced owners are typically helpful with 2nd opinions on evaluating trades, etc.
5. (Relatively) low drama: we try to follow a low social cholesterol diet that includes regular servings of good humor
6. Tanking is discouraged: our private world rules include a minimum win requirement in order to prevent abuses; when joining the league, no new owner is subject to the minimum win requirement in their first season; and we'll actually enforce the MWR (e.g. chrisjanning, who came up 7 games short of the MWR in his 5th season)
Currently available franchises
Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Trenton Makes, The World Takes Franchise Profile
a playoff squad with young, top-crust talents at the plate and at the top of the rotation — very likely to contend again.
Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Memphis Rebels Franchise Profile
this perennial playoff favorite is a masterpiece, assembled by veteran owner opie5. You just won't believe the kind of pitching at your disposal here. Think 2 Cy Young-quality pitchers is a luxury? Try 5.
Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Philadelphia Freedom Franchise Profile
another perennial power franchise, but this one is re-trenching. Has a Top 10 draft pick coming up.
Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - San Antonio Messengers Franchise Profile
you can benefit from the previous owner's effort to semi-tank: several good intn'l FAs and draft picks are on the farm, and another top 10 draft pick is coming up.
Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - User Profile - zzookeepp
a handyman's dream! the former Dover franchise is ready for a turnaround. Skeptical? Try having draft picks #2 AND #4
in the coming draft. We need not say more.
Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Scottsdale Redlegs Franchise Profile
long-time Schmidt-head mjdato built an offensive juggernaut, and he's hanging up his cleats this season. Add a little pitching, and this borderline playoff-contender is ready to compete again. Draft picks #12 & 16 coming up...
Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Arizona Comancheros Franchise Profile
this is a solid squad that narrowly missed the playoffs last season. The parts fit, particularly in the field and at the plate.
Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Monterrey Revolutions Franchise Profile
there's talented players on the roster, but they don't fit quite right, so this squad is at least a couple seasons away from seriously contending again. Should have a top 5 draft pick coming up.
