Lincoln and the Republicans Best FDR and the Democrats 5-3!

Republican starter Abraham Lincoln was in fine form against the Democrats at Republicans Ballpark, leading his team to a 5-3 win. Chester A. Arthur was credited with the save. He has now successfully converted 16 of 18 save opportunities. The Republicans have now won 6 straight. The Republicans got a big at-bat from pinch hitter George H. W. Bush. For the game, Bush was 1-1 with a double. In the bottom of the seventh, with runners on 1st and 2nd, he stroked a run-scoring  double. His 27th double of the season gave Washington a 4-3 lead. "Nice to put this one in the win column," said Bush.

Hubert Humphrey and Thomas Dewey had 3 hits each for their respective teams. Humphrey hit a triple at one point.

James A. Garfield has 2 RBIs (45 on the season)

Grover Cleveland and Jimmy Carter struck out 3 times each. Cleveland's batting average is down to .359.

Barack Obama stole his 14th base. 

Franklin D. Roosevelt committed 2 errors (he had only 1 error before this game.)

The loss goes to James Buchanan who gave up 3 hits and 2 runs on 6 batters.

Abraham Lincoln threw 77 strikes in 118 pitches! 12 were strikeouts. Lincoln's record is now 11-1.

Outliers Shock Baffled Democrats, 12-8!

The Outliers topped the Democrats,  12-8, at Democrats Ballpark. Washington left fielder Strom Thurmond earned player of the game honors. He banged out 3 singles and 1 double, while driving in 3 runs. Even with the win, the Outliers have a dismal 28-58 record. Ralph Nader, who is tied for 10th in doubles with 16, chipped in for the Outliers with a grand slam home run in the top of the seventh. For the game, the third baseman had 3 hits in 6 at-bats with 1 home run, 2 singles, 2 runs scored, and 4 RBI. Nader told the Washington Citizen: "Sometimes the big stage is not big enough for me."

John B. Anderson, despite being on the worst team, still has the highest batting average in the league with .388!

Four outliers had 3 or more hits! The team had 15 total hits!

Eugene V. Debs was walked 4 times!

Andrew Johnson struck out 3 times. 

Starting pitcher Ron Paul was no help to his team, as he gave up 9 hits and 5 runs in 3 innings. 

James Buchanan is credited with the loss after giving up 6 runs in a brief stint in relief.

The win is more impressive considering the Outliers have 6 major players injured, while Democrats have only Andrew Jackson on the disabled list.

Truman Lifts Democrats Over Lincoln Led Republicans 5-4!

Democratic third baseman Harry S. Truman played a vital role in his team's 5-4 triumph over the Republicans. He was 4-4 with a home run, a double, 2 singles,  and a walk, while scoring 2 runs and driving in 2 for Democrats. Woodrow Wilson got credit for the win, improving to 13-3. He allowed 4 runs on 8 hits in 8 innings. Democrats are now 58-36. The win puts them 6 games up in their division. Had Hubert H. Humphrey not delivered a key base hit in the top of the seventh, the outcome might have been different. Instead, with two down and runners on 1st and 2nd, Humphrey hit a run-scoring single. That made the score 5-4, in favor of the Democrats. "I'll probably toss and turn tonight," Abraham Lincoln said following the tough loss.

Harry S. Truman is now batting .364, surpassing Grover Cleveland as the team leader in batting average. 

Ulysses S. Grant had 3 RBIs, giving him 45 on the season. He also had a triple. 

Franklin Pierce struck out 5 times! A League record! Strangely, he is batting .332 on the season. 

Harry S. Truman and John F. Kennedy both hit home runs. 

John C. Fremont stole 2 bases, giving him 21 for the season. 

Abraham Lincoln hit Barack Obama with a pitch. 

Woodrow Wilson, who got the win, managed only 2 strikeouts in 8 innings somehow.

Martin Van Buren got his 16th save. 

Abraham Lincoln stuck out 12 batters in only 5 innings.

Relief pitcher Gerald Ford was credited with the loss.

I finally caved and bought the game due to this series. Let me know if you can get the rosters over in any way at all! I am ecstatic to give it a shot!

It's a cool game. I like to start all the way back in the beginning. I'll send you my roster files. There has to be a way to get them to work or why would they allow players to export or import rosters? I've just not been successful in getting them to show up. I could be doing something wrong. 

Actually, before I send you the files, I want to edit the rosters. I made the players their actual inauguration ages and they retire too soon and run out of energy too soon. The upside is that all the backups generally get to play, but it would be fun to play multiple seasons with the roster without the entire league retiring.

You could try and scale it. For example, JFK could be twenty two, while Franklin could be closer to 33/34.

I'm just going to make them all like 18 or something, so they have long careers. I could then make their potential equal to how great they ended up becoming and their initial ratings based on how far along the road they were to the presidency in their early career.

I like this idea a lot, actually. This could lead to some interesting developments, such as the Outliers having very successful early seasons but sputtering off drastically as the seasons pass. How does this setup work with free agents and trades, and scouting? And how did you get a simple four team setup?
