02:39 PM - March 28, 2017. Written by sc050610
Hello Everyone,

So I have been blogging about my Franchise over on The ShowNation for a few years now but now with that they have started to update the site yearly and dump all the old threads, I figured the time is now to get things started over here.

I am currently in my second year of my Franchise and sit 51-32 on the year two games back of the Yankees in the division.

To get caught up on where I left things off at on The ShowNation click this link below. I will begin posting from where I left off over there.

07:07 PM - March 18, 2017. Written by WestleySnipez
VANCOUVER, British Columbia - 25 games in to the season, and the Canucks still are struggling to string together wins. With a record of 12-12-1, remarkably they are holding onto a wildcard spot, and sit just one point behind Arizona who has third in the Pacific (though the Coyotes do have three games in hand).

Last season, the Canucks had issues scoring and their defensive play was what won them games. Now though, the reverse has happened. Offense leads the way while the back end try and keep the puck out of the net. Rumors are beginning to circle whether or not goaltender Ryan Miller might be trending towards the end of a long career, as he sits at a .903 Save percentage and a 2.97 GAA over 20 games. Backup tender Jacob Markstrom is posting better numbers, but in a smaller time frame; with a .922 SV% and a 2.22 goals against average.

Henrik and Daniel continue to lead the charge offensively, with Daniel having 19 points in 25 games, and Henrik 16 points in the same time frame. Brock Boeser has a bruised wrist halfway through November, causing him to miss four games, but has 9 goals and 15 points in 21 games. He continues to lead the rookies in goals, and sits 4th in points behind Auston Matthews, Patrik Laine, and Mitch Marner.

Meanwhile, Bo Horvat has broken through his slow start, now having 10 points in his last 12 outings. Reid Boucher and Sven Baertschi are continuing their offensive strives, with both scoring 7 goals each. New comer Leon Draisaitl is doing quite well after a struggling start in Edmonton. After producing only 2 assists in 15 games for the Oilers, he put up 13 points (8 of them goals) in the last 15 games. Loui Eriksson was injured in the first game of the season, the 6 million dollar winger is expected back soon, and should help with penalty killing and the third line's production.

On defense, Alexander Edler and Chris Tanev lead the back end, averaging 23 minutes a game each. Ben Hutton, Troy Stecher, and Nikita Tryamkin are continuing to improve, each playing roughly 20 minutes a night. Each have done quite well in the takeaways department. Erik Gudbranson, however, has done abysmally this season. He averages only 17 minutes a night, but is a team worst -11, has only 1 assist, and has over 53 giveaways in 25 games.

BREAKING: Tom Crean fired by Indiana University after 9 seasons. AD Fred Glass releases statement:

"After deliberative thought and evaluation, including multiple meetings with Tom about the future, I have decided to make a change in the leadership of our men's basketball program. Tom Crean brought us through one of the most challenging periods in IU basketball history, led his players to many successes in the classroom and on the court and represented our university with class and integrity. While winning two outright Big Ten titles in five years and being named Big Ten Coach of the Year, Tom worked tirelessly to develop great young men and successful teams. However, ultimately, we seek more consistent, high levels of success, and we will not shy away from our expectations. Tom is a good man and a good coach and we owe him a great debt of gratitude for his many positive contributions to Indiana basketball. We wish him well.

The national search for our new coach begins immediately. The Board of Trustees and the President have expressly delegated to me the responsibility and authority for this search and hire. While I will not be establishing a formal search committee or advisory committee, I will consult with basketball experts from around the country and throughout the State of Indiana, including many former Indiana University basketball players. The expectations for Indiana University basketball are to perennially contend for and win multiple Big Ten championships, regularly go deep in the NCAA tournament, and win our next national championship—and more after that. We will identify and recruit a coach who will meet these expectations."

BREAKING: Indiana University hires Nick Cotner as head basketball coach. Nick Cotner now leads a program that hungers to return back to the elite tier of the college basketball world. Cotner, who grew up an in-state Hoosier fan, says it was an easy decision to accept the job and looks forward to the challenge. The first thing Nick Cotner will have to do is repair the relationship between in state talent and the school. The state of Indiana is a hot bed for basketball talent and Indiana has always been at its best when the state has been recruited at a high level. During the presser Nick Cotner said the first thing he will do is meet with the current roster and then jump head first into recruiting.


SF Collin Hartman - Though he has one season of eligibility left he has opted to pursue his career after obtaining his degree from the university.

PG Josh Newkirk - After transferring to IU to play his JR season under former coach Tom Crean the PG has decided that he will not be a good fit under new coach Nick Cotner and has opted to transfer once again.

SG Curtis Jones - After spending his freshman season playing under Tom Crean the SG will opt to pursue his education and college career elsewhere after the coaching change.

BREAKING: O.G. Anunobuy, Thomas Bryant, Robert Johnson, and James Blackmon, who were rumored to be leaning towards leaving the university, have all decided to return to Indiana University after meeting with new coach Nick Cotner.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Some games are filled with exciting, intense hockey. Others, lack luster, boring affairs where both teams can't seem to put a puck in the net.

In their first 10 starts this season, the Canucks are a game below .500 with a 4-5-1 record. But that record doesn't tell the whole story, as the Canucks are close in 4 of those 5 losses, losing by only one goal. Third periods are proving to be the difficulty for the boys in blue and green, as they've given up 15 of the 27 goals against in the final frame. Compared to just 4 of the 25 goals for in that same period. Once Vancouver figures out they have to play three periods, not just two, they'll be able to produce a much better record.

On the bright side, Henrik and Daniel Sedin seem revitalized with a reduction in TOI. Playing on the second line and second powerplay unit, they've each put up 7 points in the first 10 games of the season. Brock Boeser, the rookie right winger from the NCAA, has been benefiting from Henrik's improved production, potting 5 goals of his own and taking an early lead in the Calder race.

Struggling with the workload of first line time are the youngsters Bo Horvat, Sven Baertschi, and Reid Boucher. Baertschi leads the line in points with 6 in 10, Boucher (who missed one game to the flu) has 4 goals and 1 assist for 5 points in 9 games, and Horvat has only 3 points in 10 after a slow start to the season.

"Last season I struggled for the first half to put up points," Horvat said following the Canucks' game against Montreal last night where he went pointless. "I'm just focusing on doing what the coach needs me to do, the little things are what leads to goals. I'd feel better about it if the team was doing better, but you're always looking for the win, and when you can't contribute... Yeah it sucks."

The Canucks' next game is against the Ottawa Senators tonight in the nation's capital.

Returning to the UnstoppaBulls: The Tank is Bulletproof

I once thought of this season as being one of hope, playoffs, and success. Now, I hope that we are doing enough to secure ourselves a top 3 pick. Whilst, also hoping the Kings get me in the Top 11-15.

Elsewhere in the league not much movement has occurred. The Orlando Magic however did sign veteran forward Terrence Jones to a one-year $5.76M deal. The next night the Magic visited the United Center and, well they kicked our butts. 82-120, behind Evan Fournier double-double. Jimmy Butler did however, have another great outing for us scoring 25 points. But, his contributions dont seem to be enough. I have told Jimmy many times that he needs to be more aggressive. He just seems unwilling to show the level of aggression that I need from him on a daily basis.

We took that bullet to the head. Next was a two-game road trip to the southeast. Atlanta was first up on the trip and I think the players left their will and determination to win home in Chicago. As Dwight 16pts, and 12 rebounds powered the Hawks to a 78-127 victory. Miami was no better except we looked a smidge better defensively. Rose stood tall in the game before going down with a left foot sprain after Dragic stepped under him on a jump shot. Rose finished the game with 26 points but the sad news will have him on the sidelines for 1-2 weeks.

While some could now criticize the investment in Rose. Doctors in New York told the Knicks that newly acquired guard Dwayne Wade would miss the next month with left knee tendinitis.

As we headed back home, some breaking news from Los Angeles came through as the Lakers, and new president of basketball operations Magic Johnson decided to fire Luke Walton. They replaced him with Benjamin Walker a nonexperienced coach out of San Jose.

I let the team have the day off after the road trip before we took on the Wizards. And lets just say that no Rose, and playing the fierce backcourt of Beal, and Wall. It was shaping up to be a bad day. The Wizards would beat us 112-95 in our sixth straight blowout loss, and seventh loss in a row.

Good thing we have a ton of expirings..... Including the coach.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - As preseason comes to a close, we finally get a chance to see the opening night rosters for each team. Last Thursday the Canucks announced their final cuts, finalizing their 23-man roster for the 2016-17 season.

Change is in the air, the Canucks will no longer be led by Daniel and Henrik Sedin, but instead by Bo Horvat and Sven Baertschi. Last season the Sedins had their lowest point per game production since 2004. Horvat and Baertschi led the Canucks in preseason scoring, both getting 8 points in 6 games.

As for new faces, Brock Boeser made the final cut, producing 4 goals and 2 assists as the third wheel on the Sedin line.

Here are the projected lines for the start of the season:

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - The Vancouver Canucks hired Westley Snipez as General Manager last Saturday.

Snipez replaces Jim Benning, who was fired August 16 after the Canucks missed the playoffs for the second straight year. Vancouver finished with a 34-38-10 record, 14 points out of a wild card spot, and 26th in the league. The 54-year-old Snipez, who signed a three year deal will have some tough decisions to make before the start of the 2017-18 season.

The Canucks have a plethora of youth with players like Bo Horvat, Sven Baertschi, Troy Stecher, and Ben Hutton already in the lineup. But even more youngsters are on the way, with a prospect pool loaded with Nikolay Goldobin, Brock Boeser, Adam Gaudette, Thatcher Demko, and Olli Juolevi coming up.

"I've been a hockey fan all my life," Snipez said at the news conference: "I'm extremely grateful to be given this opportunity."

"This team has a lot of talented, young players that you can really build around. Speed, skill, size can all be found in one form or another on the roster. But there is still a lot of questions out there, namely around our center depth. I expect us to compete for a playoff spot this year, but I think it'll be two seasons before we have a group that can really go deep."

All DD players will report to Spring Training today to get ready for the new season. MLB 17 is close, but not close enough, and I really want to get started into this years game. Y2Y saves have been great, but this year I'm starting fresh in everything. 15 I was heavy into DD, getting 90 wins in full-game PVP. in 16, I hardly did anything in DD, going 18-13 in PVP. But this year, I'm getting back into it, and it starts today.

I play DD differently. I am a diehard Cleveland Indians fan, I have been playing Franchise modes exclusively with them since the days of Front Page Sports: Baseball Pro 98, and this isn't going to change much going into DD. I'm not looking for a 99 ovr team with all diamond players, no, I am going to collect, and exclusively play with Cleveland Indians players only, or players that have played for the Indians. CC, Lee, Cabrera, Peralta...and if classic players are in there...Justice, Mesa, Murray, Thome etc. Should be hard to do, seeing how the Tribe could have 4 diamond players in 17, Kluber, Miller, Lindor, Kipnis...so I think there will be planty of meaningful grinding this year.

This may put me at a disadvantage, not getting that Griffey ((ovr right off the bat...but that's ok, that is the point. I want to be an underdog team, loyal to my current boys, and give former Indians the chance they might have never got...Grady, I'm looking at you...

So what are my plans for "DD Spring Training"...pretty much get back into the flow of things. Play some 9 inning Extra Inning games on All-Star with whatever Indians squad I can piece together, and also restart and play some conquest. Nothing too serious, seeing how this will not transfer over, but just to be used like real sporing training. Get back to playing everyday, seeing pitches, getting used to matchups, and eat sleep breathe baseball.

For The Show, Myself, and the Cleveland Indians of real life, 2017 is going to be an amazing year.

Returning to the UnstoppaBulls: Bulls Blog #3: Looking like a long season.

Well if you look up the definition of struggle in the dictionary Im sure there will be a photo of the Bulls logo. We were blown completely out by the Pacers which quickly meant this rebuilding process was in full swing. As you see I have been here attempting to clean up some of the mistakes the franchise has made.

Things began when I traded Paul Zipser to the Lakers to bring veteran Metta World Peace back around full circle to the team that drafted him. Following the trade I received a call back from the front office in Phoenix saying they liked the deal I sent them for PJ Tucker so I sent sharp shooting swingman Anthony Morrow to Phoenix for Tucker. The last deal of the night saw me send dancing machine Cameron Payne to San Antonio for Dedmond and a late 1st round pick. While I may have bamboozled the Spurs here in this deal the name of the game isn't how to make the other team good. Its how to make my team better right now.

The trade showed its worth as we went to Brooklyn to battle a team in far worse shape than we were. Brooklyn, struggles were evident as Jimmy Butler continued his hot streak scoring 28 points in the 109-103 victory. Sean Kilpatrick was the workhorse for the Nets as he notched 22 in the loss.

Chicago would then get an early rematch with the Celtics. However, they'd suffer the same fate as the season opener. Losing 117-109. Butler scorched the Celtics this time around scoring 36 points. Isaiah Thomas would shake his bad night however, and drop 31 points in the game and earn himself a player of the game nod. After the game I gave the Thunder a call and made a deal that would add Jeramy Grant to the team. His size and athleticism could be great addition to the second units defense.

Our next opponent was the New York Knicks. This game was one that bothered me heading into the night knowing that we would be facing off against D-Rose and Jo (Noah), really was getting under my skin. So I made the call to trade for Rose. I sent native Chicagoan Dwayne Wade in a deal to New York straight up for Rose. The move allows Wade to play along side his friend Carmelo Anthony whilst I bring back the hometown kid. After acquiring Rose, Rondo was available to the field so I sent him to Indiana in return we received what I hope to be our sixth man in Monta Ellis. The next day we went to Indiana to challenge the Pacers and lost in a snoozer 89-115.

I do believe tho that things should be changing in the near future.

Returning to the UnstoppaBulls: Bulls Blog #2: Rough Start

Well the season has begun, and the basketball is being played around the world. Except here in Chicago. We had the pleasure of our season opener being a home game, against the vastly improved and talented Boston Celtics led by point guard Isaiah Thomas.

Thomas, didn't show up big though in this game as he was missing shots left and right. It could be attributed to the defense of Rondo. Chicago played a great defensive game in this one, but Avery Bradley would prove to be too much for the Bulls as he led the Celtics with 18 points. Jimmy Butler was the work horse for Chicago scoring 22.

After the game I was asked into my first official press conference where the media was asking me questions about the expectations I have for the team. Well that simple Win... I want to build a dynasty one that will rival the likes of the Spurs, Lakers, Bulls, and Celtics. I want this version of the Bulls team to be viewed as the next great organization built on integrity, passion, and determination. I want winners that will win by any means necessary.

The media ate it up, and enjoyed the banter I shared with them. In the press conference I also announced a trade with the New York Knicks. As we traded Joffrey Lauverne, and Christiano Felicio for Willy Hernangomez and Marshall Plumlee. Hernangomez will be one of those blue collar, hustle guys for the team. I like the intensity that he plays with and the way he cleans the glass. His presence in the paint could be a commodity to the organization as we build toward our future.

Our second game was an total embarrassment as we lost at home to the Pacers to the tune of 154-114. Paul George scored 28. We looked lost defensively making horrible reads in rotations and just playing sloppy and bad basketball. Jimmy Butler was our lone bright spot scoring 30 points on the evening.

As I analyze my team with every game I see that three-point shooting will be a achilles heel to our team moving along. Roster plans are rather uncertain as of now but it is to be believed this team will be making major moves as the season progresses.
