    Default Fake Baseball Reference v.2023 is here

    Although it does not hold a candle to the OOTP BM 2006 reports, it will have to do. Yes, the 2023 version of Fake Baseball Reference is now online, here are the changes:
    - The General Manager data for Fritz & Bryan should be consolidated, and the GM's for some past seasons have been updated (some ez and Duke seasons where bandits, RainRaven, and HeyBrad filled in).
    - The new team names and GM's have been added for the 2022 season.
    - We are now caught up on all past Manager of the Year awards (including 2017 - thx C).
    - Retained Simms micro-font CSS style.
    - 2020 awards data has been updated to reflect our voting (previously it listed the game chosen awards for that season).
    - League voted all star selections are back (the 2020 & 2021 season all stars were decided by OOTP).
    - Player photo's have been removed .
    - A past Fireman of the Year award winner which was updated (noted in a recent Cuervo post) to reflect the league votes. Previously that award had defaulted to the OOTP selection.
    - Featured player page 1: Check out the hit column for Darryl Medina.
    - Featured player page 2: Don't bring me dowwwwwwn, Bryce! Bryce Fiqueroa.
    - Featured player page 3: Mister K, Thomas Mullenax.
    - Featured player page 4: Giggidy, giggidy, check out the lifetime ERA of Wilfredo Arguelles.
    - Featured player page 5: All hail Ohl! Antonio Ohl.
    - Featured player page 6: This under appreciated SP has pitched more innings than any other FOBL pitcher: Joel Perrotta.
    - Featured player page 7: Remember this name HOF voters: Alexander Carreras.
    - Featured player page 8: Another HOF shoe in: Fred Bush.
    - Featured player pages 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15: Holy Snikey, we are in the golden shower era of outstanding starting pitching: Douglas Morehead, Harold Smith, William Tieman, Robert Ferebee, Richard Kerry, Giuseppe Gonzalez, and Jose Salinas.

    Outstanding tasks:
    - The listed 2021-2022 Awards were chosen by OOTP, these will be updated if we do awards voting for these seasons.
    - It feels like I missed recent HOF votes, can anyone can confirm that? It's also very possible we have just not voted on the HOF for awhile.

    If anyone notices correctable errors please post in this thread so they can be corrected for the next version of FBR.

    That would be correct. The committee put together a ballot last season, but it never got posted for voting.

    Thanks for the thanks guys, it's definitely one of my fave things about the league and to me it gets better every year as it counts more and more seasons and team/league/player records. It's not difficult to run this stuff, Jeff Cato made his last version user friendly and much faster than the first versions. In fact, preparing FBR requires a fraction of the effort the day to day running of the league requires, so please FW any thanks to Cuervo and the many others who assist in those more vital day to day and off season league tasks. Go team league admins!

    This season should see 3, maybe 4 owners pass 2000 wins.

    Big fucking deal - we could possibly have three owners in the 2000 loss club after this season...

    Yeah I haven't sniffed out any newer team logo's. If they are still posted somewhere in this forum I'll try to find and add them.

    Going out on top - and, to be fair, would you want to spend more than half a season in Utica?

    The *real* Baseball Reference looks different - at least the front page. Uglier.

    The fake one has had it's css file swapped in a couple times, but has been the same for a few weeks at the least.
