Hello everybody! The next step in the league expansion has come, and that is the league realignment!
 
Currently, the league is set up like this:

 

oTgad8T.jpg

 
As you can see, the current layout for the Solar League Baseball is similar to the present day Major League Baseball style. You have two separate leagues, (American-National style) with two divisions in each league split up by geography (a la NL West, NL East).
 
There are four new expansion teams, all based in the outer solar system. The commissioner is fully committed to the two leagues (Astro/Cosmo) with two divisions in each league with five teams.
 
The commissioner wants to try to avoid putting all four expansion teams in one division, as it would make the other league/divisions too top-heavy. He wants to keep the league balanced.
 
The commissioner doesn’t want any teams to switch leagues to preserve rivalries, but would be open to teams moving divisions if necessary.
 
The running favorite plan is to simply add two of the expansion teams to one league, and the other two to the other league, keeping the Astro-Cosmo set-up. But the thing is, which teams would go in which division? Obviously, if they’re keeping the geography-based divisions, they would go into the Endeavour and Soyuz divisions, the two outer-most divisions to save travel time. One current team from each Endeavour and Soyuz would move over to Enterprise and Sputnik, the two inner divisions.
 
With that being said, the league layout would look like the following:
 
Astro League
 
Enterprise Division (Inner)
·      Earth Astronauts
·      Luna Apollos
·      Mars Warriors
·      Mercury Mets
·      Venus Sparrows
 
Endeavour Division (Outer)
·      Callisto Cubs (Jupiter)
·      Ceres Belters
·      Jupiter Kings
·      Expansion Team A
·      Expansion Team B
 
Cosmo League
 
Sputnik Division (Inner)
·      Kennedy Rockets (Luna)
·      Mendez Islanders (Lagrange Islands)
·      PUA Emperors (Earth)
·      Valles Marineris Canyons (Mars)
·      Venus Reign
 
Soyuz Division (Outer)
·      Europa Mastodons (Jupiter)
·      Ganymede Giants (Jupiter)
·      Titan Scorpions (Saturn)
·      Expansion Team C
·      Expansion Team D
 
Now, the next step is deciding which two would go in the Endeavour Division, and which two would go into the Soyuz Division.
 
Based on the history and the feel of it, the Astro League (Endeavour) seems to have a more historical, traditional feel to it. Which makes sense considering five of the six original teams all are projected to be in the AL Enterprise Division together. The Cosmo League (Soyuz) has a more modern take on it, due to the many recent expansion teams in it, such as Valles Marineris, Mars and Kennedy, Luna.
 
The Io Vulcans are going to be the luckiest team in terms of travel, no matter what. They’d be basically in a division with two other Jupiter teams. The question is, which division will be the lucky one with three Jupiter-based teams? Having three Jupiter teams in a division will reduce travel times immensely.
 
The Pluto Hounds will have the most travel times, no matter what, due to their proximity in the Solar System. Pluto is so far away that it really doesn’t matter if they’re in a division with Neptune (closest planet to Pluto) or Uranus (next closest planet). So no matter what, an unlucky division will have to travel Pluto several times anyway.

So, one option is to have Io and Pluto in the same division together. With three Jupiter teams, Pluto, and a fifth team, the travel would be mostly contained within Jupiter with the occasion outlier trips out to Pluto. The issue is that Pluto would essentially have to skip over THREE planets just get to Jupiter. Vice versa for the other teams too.
 
So another option is to give Pluto a neighboring team, which would be Neptune, in their division.
 
If they do pair up Pluto and Neptune together in a division, which division do they belong to? Endeavour or Soyuz?
 
The commissioner has thought about placing Io and Ursula in the AL Endeavour Division, while placing Neptune and Pluto in the CL Soyuz Division. That way, the Endeavour Division would “skew” slightly toward the inside, and the Soyuz Division would “skew” outer. The con with this is that Ursula just feels like a Cosmo League team due to the modern takes on the team name.

 

Or do the league "alternate" the teams based on geography? For example, Io would be with Neptune, while Ursula would be with Pluto. If so, then where do they go? 
 
The possibilities are endless. That’s why the league is opening up to the public to take in ideas and suggestions!

 

So… feel free to share your ideas! Where do you think the teams should go? Who's the lucky division? Who's the hard-lucked loser that has to be with Pluto? 
 
Please use the map as a reference. The four expansion teams are in the lower right corner for your reference. Just because they're in the "CL Soyuz" area doesn't mean all four will be in that division.

I know the Titan Scorpions has the wrong cap on, but I didn't realize it until I saved it to Imgur. 

 

Thanks!!

Hi guys, just letting you know what I've already went ahead and started simming the 2534 season! I've taken @Red Comet's suggestion and aligned the league with Io-Ursula in the Endeavour and Neptune-Pluto in the Soyuz. I was too excited to get going, so I jumped on it. Sorry if we didn't have more discussions about this! 

 

Not sure when the 2534 season will be posted, but it'll be within a few days, so stay tuned! 


Thanks!

RoughRiders99's Notes and Disclaimers: 

Here it is! The first "preseason" post in a while! The regular and postseason posts will be coming up sometimes later today! 

I do have a question for the mods, or anybody else who could answer it, though: Lately, I have having trouble copying and pasting whatever I wrote in Word Doc with all of the formatting (bold, underlines, etc) into this thread. Every time I paste something in here, it'd remove all of the formatting and the paragraph breaks and all that stuff. I'd have to manually reapply all of the proper formatting to make it look good again. Has anybody else had similar issues? Let me know, thanks!

2534 Regular Season

 

Divisional Quick Recaps


AL Enterprise Division: The Astronauts won their third straight divisional title, 7th consecutive playoff appearance, and 11th in 12 years … In their first year in the Enterprise Division, the Warriors snuck into the playoffs along with the Sparrows with an identical record; the Warriors owned the tiebreaker over the Sparrows for the seeding position … The Mets and the Apollo rounded out the bottom dwellers.

 
AL Endeavour Division: The powerhouse Callisto Cubs blew everybody away in the league with 109 wins, their third straight season with at least 106 wins … The surprising expansion teams Majors and Vulcans hung on until the final weeks of the season, finishing just 1-2 games out of the playoffs … The Belters also missed it by just one game … The Kings are now in a rebuilding mode.

 
CL Sputnik Division: To nobody’s surprise, the Canyons clinched their 7th straight divisional title and the first Sputnik title after winning six Soyuz titles … The Rockets clinched their 10th playoff appearance … The Reign put up a respectable season, but couldn’t handle the other middle teams in the CL … The Islanders struggled with their pitching … The Emperors are starting rumors about a potential relocation for a fresh start due to never having a winning season in team history and to get out of the Astronauts’ shadow.

 
CL Soyuz Division: The Scorpions won their first divisional title since 2520, and will appear in the postseason for the third straight year … The Giants used strong pitching to finish 2nd in the division … The Mastodons made some noise in the last few weeks, but missed the postseason by two games … The Mariners were in first place for the first two months, but faltered to fourth place due their lack of experience … The Pluto Hounds struggled with their travels and finished with 64 wins.

Whoops. Clearly a typo. My apologizes. They're supposed to play 162 games like real-life MLB. Thanks for the heads up.  

 

The Cubs' record should be 109-53 and the Mariners' record should be 74-88.

2534 Postseason

 

League Divisional Series


•    The 84-win team Sparrows pulled off an upset over the heavily favored 109-win team Cubs by winning the series 3 games to 1. Ryan Exum batted .526 for the Sparrows. 
•    The Warriors cruised to the ALCS by sweeping the Astronauts in three games. Mars lefty Tony Crosley tossed a nine-inning shutout in Game 2. 
•    Between the Canyons and the Giants, the home team won all of their games. Fortunately the Canyons had the advantage, as they won the series, 3 games to 2. Worth noting – facing elimination, the Giants hit a pinch-hit, walk-off GRAND SLAM in the bottom of the ninth to win Game 3, 6-5. Unfortunately, they couldn’t carry the momentum. 
•    The Rockets launched all of their hitters and swept the Scorpions in three games, outscoring them 30-14. 

 

League Championship Series


•    ALCS – The No. 4 Sparrows continued their underdog story by advancing past the Warriors by winning four games in five games. Second baseman Nobuhisa Shimokawa, who signed a $151.2 million contract, paced the Sparrows with 8 hits in 20 at-bats. 
•    CLCS – After struggling a little bit in the CLDS, the Canyons rebounded and propelled themselves to their third straight Galactic Series appearance by defeating the Rockets, 4 games to 1. 

 

Galactic Series

The text below are copied from the OOTP Postgame Stories

 

Game 1: The Venus Sparrows started the Galactic Series in style today, winning on the road against the Valles Marineris Canyons at Valley Stadium by a score of 6-1 to take an early 1-0 lead in the best-of-7 series. Sparrows right-hander Ryan Dennis was named player of the game after he threw 7 innings of 6-hit ball.

 

Game 2: With center fielder Eduardo Fernandez leading the charge, the Venus Sparrows got past the Valles Marineris Canyons, 6-2, in extra innings in Game 2 of the Galactic Series today. Fernandez was 3-5 with a home run and 2 singles. He drove in 3 runs and scored once at Valley Stadium as Venus managed to take to a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 series.

 

Game 3: The Venus Sparrows moved to within one game of winning the Galactic Series today, downing the visiting Valles Marineris Canyons at Statue Field by a score of 5-4. Sparrows left fielder Danny Diaz was named player of the game after he went 2 for 4 with a home run, while adding 2 RBI and scoring once. The win gives the Sparrows a 3-0 advantage in the best-of-7 Galactic Series. 

 

Game 4: On the verge of being swept and facing a red-hot Venus Sparrows team, the Valles Marineris Canyons had a tough assignment. Shoitsu Fujita delivered. The Canyons designated hitter was unstoppable for the visitors, as he was 3 for 5 with a home run and 2 singles, while scoring 2 runs and driving in 2 in guiding his club to its first victory of the series, 10-8. Fujita, 25, was named player of the game for his efforts. The win means Valles Marineris now trails 3-1 in the best-of-7 series.

 

Game 5: The Venus Sparrows are champions, today and forever. The Sparrows topped the Valles Marineris Canyons 4-2 at Statue Field today to claim the Galactic Series crown in a massive upset.

 

"Nobody can take this away from us, not ever," said series MVP and first baseman Cesar Aguilar after his club had sealed the victory. "We worked hard and we accomplished our goal."

The atmosphere was electric as the newly-crowned champs stormed the field at the conclusion of the game. Fans cheered, gloves flew in the air, high fives and hugs were the order of the day.

 

"From day one of spring training, I could see it in their eyes," said Venus manager Jake Cragen. "The players had that look of intensity, of hunger, of a desire to accomplish something great, and today they did that. They're champions of the world."

 

The Sparrows took the series 4-1. It is their third Galactic Series title in franchise history, and the first since 2529. The new titleholders completed the regular season with a third-place finish in the Astro League Enterprise and an 84-78 record.

I'd say that both is a great storyline on their own! The Sparrows won only their third title in franchise history on a Cinderella run as the no. 4 seeded team, but the Canyons are doing something that's quite special, both good and bad. At least they won a title in 2530. They remind me a lot of the Braves' dynasty in the 90s. They won all of these division titles, but only has one World Series title to show for it.

  • The PUA Emperors announced that if they have another losing season AND finish last in their division, they will relocate to the Lagrange Islands for the 2536 season.
  • The two Lagrange Islands candidates are:
    • Pamoja – primarily shipyard and spaceport with an open immigration policy, welcoming people from all walk of life, with a population of at least 1.3 million, good for third largest establishment in the Space United Nations (SUN) behind Lake Armstrong and Kennedy on Luna. The word "pamoja" means together in Swahili. 
    • Harmony One  – The capital City of the SUN and a major hub for trade and diplomatic relations. Its population is a little over 490,000, good for 10th largest establishment in the SUN. The economy is booming there due to the upper-class people that pass through there. 
  • The league is also accepting potential ideas for team branding should the Emperors relocate.

Why not try somewhere else on earth? Seems strange to me that they’d leave earth, seeing as it has the most population still right? And wouldnt Europe or something be a good candidate for a relocation team? Or are they afraid of always being in the Astronauts shadow.

 

Also Pamoja Guardians sounds cool. They take everyone in like a guardian of some kind.

Yes, you are right about Earth being the most populous place in the SUN. I've toyed with the idea of moving the team to Moscow and calling them the Moscow Cosmonauts, but that might be a little too on the nose with the Astronauts, haha. I do have plans on Earth having a lot more expansion teams in the future. I'm toying with the idea of some kind of a league merger, but I have no immediate plans for it. It's just an idea rattling around in my head right now. The Emperors just want to get out of PUA's shadow for a little bit. 

I do hope that this league somehow reaches 30 teams. That's my next goal for this project. It'll take time though. 

EDIT: And you, my friend, just sparked an idea with the Guardians.

I believe the capital city deserves a team...my pick would be the Harmony One Senators (or Diplomats).

I absolutely agree with you. Harmony One WILL get a team at some point. either if it's a relocation or an expansion down the road. The Lagrange Islands are large enough to have multiple teams for sure.

Right now every planet in the SUN has a team, so it's time to start adding a second (or third or fourth!) teams to a few certain high-populated areas in the inner system (from Mercury to Mars). I'll be making a comprehensive list of cities when the time comes.

Oh no! I hope PUA stay - they are my favourite team in the league! Please don't finish last in the division!
