That would be "Computer Simulated Fantasy Baseball League." It's like a bunch of other games out there where you manage your own organization of made up players (they have skill ratings, you draft them develop them, trade, sign free agents, etc.). It's relatively simplistic, but it was always a lot of fun. Just curious if anyone else has ever played.

It looks interesting and I can't argue with the price. I'd never heard of it.

Yeah, it's definitely one of those "you get what you pay for" kind of things (it's free), and I haven't played it in several years. But it was a fun diversion in law school.

Baseball Mogul is, by far, the best diversion ever.

I've heard of it, but never looked into it. Time-consuming?

Very much so. The game's database is ridiculous. You can play as far back as 1901 as well as start up expansion teams like the Rockies/Mariners/Colt .45s and do expansion drafts. Lots of micromanagement aspects to it as well

It is as time consuming as you want it to be. Sustaining success isn't easy without editing players or ripping off other teams. And it is really easy to rip off other teams. I'm still using BM '09, I'm planning on upgrading this year. All-in-all, its a good time, definitely worth what you'll pay.

I had a couple teams on there for a while...got sick of it.

Despite my preference for baseball over all other sports, I have found buzzerbeater to be a much better diversion when it comes to managing a fake sports franchise. I'm in the NBBA...
And that's a bad miss...

Honestly the best baseball related diversion is MLB 2K11. When 2K12 comes out my grades are going to drop faster than Kosuke Fukudome's average in may.

Baseball Mogul is a very swell game and is probably the best "GM" game out there. The bad part is I have to handicap myself pretty bad in order to not build a dynasty that makes the Yankees look like the Cubs as it is really easy to screw the computer in trades (if you turn off the trade deadline you can get the best prospect in baseball for a guy in the last year of his contract the day after the World Series) and I typically get my stadium to 100,000 capacity within 30-40 years. My main beef with the game? No matter how many times I play it, Babe Ruth just isn't the same in the game as real life.
