I am sitting here bored on my day off with nothing to do so I decided to create an expansion team from scratch. This is Baseball Mogul 2010.

I was hesitant to play as the Dbacks, only because I have a tendency to make the same moves every time I draft an expansion team. This is not 100% historically accurate at all. The computer AI likes to (I think) randomly protect players. Another thing I dont really get is the Rays AI will attempt to draft a team that will win now and then suck majorly in ensuing years. I am setting the difficulty to the third highest for the first time (I usually play fan mode because I like to win all of the time :lol: ) Another thing is some players, like Lee and Webb, are already on the team. The point is to give you a starting 8 and a couple of pitchers. Obviously, I am not going to put Webb in my rotation as an 18 year old (but i guess you can).

(the AI just made a trade between Houston and Cleveland with Biggio and Williams as the centerpieces, WTF?)

I will chronicle this (whether you like it or not :lol: ).

1. Fletcher C Toronto (TBs first pick was David Wells, to illustrate my point)
2. Suppan SP Boston*
3. Cather RP Atlanta
4. Counsell 2B Florida
5. Frank CF Cincinnati
6. Batista SP Montreal
7. Relaford SS Philadelphia
8. Matsui 2B NYM
9. Little RF STL
10. Trachsel SP Cubs
11. Machado C CHWS
12. Benitez LF KC*
13. Peters LHP Pittsburgh
14. Arias 3B SD
15. Dellucci RF Baltimore*
16. Anderson SP Cleveland*
17. K. Johnson 1B Anaheim
18. Wade RP Atlanta
19. Hillenbrand 3B Boston
20. Ojeda SS Cubs
21. Erickson 2B Milwaukee
22. Montgomery RF Houston (couldnt resist :lol: )
23. Snyder SP CHWS
24. J. Sosa CF Colorado
25. Millar 1B Florida
26. Osborne SP St Louis
27. Livingstone 3B Montreal
28. Prieto SP Oakland
29. Blake 3B Toronto
30. McConell RP Atlanta
31. Freire 1B Baltimore
32. Aven LF Florida
33. Stevens 1B Texas
34. Fox 3B NYY
35. Carlson RP SF*

See what I mean about always ending up with actual former Dbacks :lol: I traded Garcia and 6mil$ to Detroit for Gonzo. The last few picks were me just trying to get finished. *=players that were taken in real life.

I deleted that season and created a new Dbacks franchise. Starting in ST 2009. I did Coach mode (medium difficulty). I just won the 2011 World Series against the Rangers. Scherzer threw a 3 hit shutout in game 4 followed by a Webb gem 8 innings of shutout ball for the clincher in game 5. CY the Series MVP with 2 hrs, 9 rbi, .381 BA and .480 OBP.

2011 Dbacks won 100 games.

I have Soria, Kershaw and Chamberlain. Soria was a FA signing, the Dodgers offered me two relief prospects for Kershaw and I was like HELL YEAH :lol:
