These are your Astros...



My TCB friends, my cable has been out for a week (thankfully the internet is fine) and while listening to the Milo Hamilton is wonderfully cathartic, I had an itch to see the Astros. I grabbed my copy of MLB 2k11, downloaded updated rosters and started a Franchise mode. I'm a simulation player so I found some difficulty sliders I liked and went to town.

I just finished my first full week's worth of games and I thought I'd share some stats/other info about the season, so far. If yall like this comment on it and I'll keep posting updates!

NOTE: the rosters I have have Castro & Kepp not injured, but as you'll see that got balanced out :(

Okay, what do yall think? (Do I have too much time on my hands? Yes) Brett Myers, Bud Norris, AND Clint Barmes are all DL'd after the first week (Norris to the 60-day...) I strike out a lot as well as get a lot of strikeouts...I've been Lyon'd and have to deal with El Bufalo's empty average...Pence has been on a tear and after starting out slow Wallace went 3-4 with a homer and a double versus the Marlins in game 1 of the series (Pence hit a walk-off 2-run homer in that game). I, for one, have had a lot of fun and it feels somewhat realistic.
