    Winning games is basically the same as selling out imo

    I selected the Millenials as my team before I became aware of the deep lore surrounding the Chicago Firefighters, from the nature of the spatially dislocated Firehouse in which they all play to the Axeman, a strange unknowable being who forges the bats they all use in an arcane ritual

    When you have crossed the threshold of Chicago, you are always a part of it. It never lets go

    I have a feeling a lot of people are voting for Lottery Pick

    So it all depends on whether Jaylen stays #14

    I have no idea about any of the lore, so I picked NY Millenials when I started because I'm in NY and also it seems like the most asshole team name possible and I am all in for that. Kept forgetting to actually check or do anything there though.

    I mean listen to this shit
    The Axeman is the creator of all equipment used by the Chicago Firefighters. Little is known of their origin, and what is known is a closely kept secret. The Axeman toils day and night within the catacombs of Lowest Wacker Drive. Using fires from the molten core of The Earth itself, which Chicago has tamed with their paramortal hands, The Axeman crafts the finest blaseball axes--carved from the husks of the giant axes that cover the landscape of many of the planes of Wacker Drive.

    The Axeman is a being of pure portent. They will only appear at the start of training for each Blaseball season to equip the Firefighters with The Axeman's latest masterworks. The Axeman is transported by a train car aloft an L line you have never noticed before and shan't notice again. Each player is gifted a new Blaseball Axe which, upon the handling thereof, compels The Axeman to utter: "I am The Axeman, Captain of Captians. Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and Play Ball."
    The following is said to appear on the entrances to Fermi Lab written in flame retardant paint to herald the arrival of The Axeman:

    All must be silent at the start of Spring Training
    Firefighters flank the field at Fermi Lab
    Stood at attention, conducting themselves as the captains they are
    All must be silent for now is when new equipment is dispersed
    Now is the moment of knowing
    A mighty groan comes As the steel girders of the L bend neath the weight of The Car
    For now, from the bowels of the Lowest Wacker...
    The Axeman Cometh

    If their bats are so good, then I guess the reason they're at the bottom of their division is just their players.

    Huh. Did they lose their best players or something, or have they just let themselves go?

    I'd just like to point out that the Fridays (a worker co-op team!) don't have a 4th base because their 4th base gained sentience and became Evelton McBlase, who now pitches for them.

    There was a shakeup at the end of the last season, they make be the worst team in their division but their division is the best teams in the entire league.

    I learned the phrase 'resting on your laurels' from Mutant League Hockey

    I had absolutely no clue what laurels actually were, but the game made the context pretty clear

    There's apparently a scheme afoot to get all players with "peanut" in their name up to top of the Idol board. But I refuse to metagame, and I like Nagomi too much, so I SHAN'T participate

    I also think something VERY BAD will happen if Jaylen is successfully resurrected, but I'm at least curious how that shakes out
