Ah, the lovely first game on Powerful. I remember that.

It was ugly.

But Poweful makes the game a LOT more fun, in my opinion, at least. Welcome to te club, Pauly :}

At the moment I'm still on the level below powerful, which I believe is all-star, nice update though.

Hey guys. Remember when I said I was going to be putting all my really good Success mode creations into free agency? Well I forgot about it because I realized the teams weren't signing any of the players. And then they did. So today we faced off against the Pyromaniac, Slade Robinson.

The Stranglers walked into their clubhouse and noticed a pile of bats on fire. This was nothing out of the ordinary, but this time a note was attatched.

"Ominous foreshadowing of what will happen tonight"

Pablo: If that's foreshadowing then that means that we will hit them hard. This guy's kind of stupid.

They sent their bat boy to the Giants clubhouse to correct this. Bruce Bochy apparently did not know about this and you could hear it in the Stranglers clubhouse.

"PYROOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!"

Stranglers Fail to Get to Robinson; Fall to Giants 4-2

Azul Abuela did all he could today. He pitched a fine game. Slade Robinson was a huge problem from the start. He has a knuckleball that breaks more and is faster than any normal knuckleball thrown by pitchers. He calls it the "Pyroball" All hitters could do was ground weakly to second base. Keith Richards actually gave the team some hope in the third inning with a solo home run to take the lead. However, in the very next inning, Kenji Johjima hit a two run home run to give the Giants a 2-1 advantage. Later in the inning, Wes Helms tripled to score two more runs. Thankfully that would be it for San Francisco scoring wise. The only other run scored was a Ryan Howard solo shot that made the game 4-2. Slade Robinson pitched a complete game. Sgt. Pepper wanted the bill of his cap checked for lighter fluid. It wouldn't have made a difference seeing how lighter fluid isn't a banned substance for pitchers to use.

WP: Slade Robinson
LP: Azul Abuela
MVP: Slade/Kenji Johjima
Notables: Ryan Howard (2-4 HR RBI) Keith Richards (1-4 HR RBI)

The Draft

WILLIAM GOLDMAN: Alright gentleman, you all know why we're here, let's draft the best possible players.

SITTCH: Wait, that's why we're here? Can I just leave?

GOLDMAN: But Sittchy, you're my general manager.

JOEY YOST: Assistant GM, sir.

GOLDMAN: Right, you're here.

SGT. PEPPER: Did we start yet?

GOLDMAN: Baltimore just picked a player named Duff number one overall. I want you to get a player like Duff.

YOST: Do you even know what position he plays?

PEPPER: Look, I don't care who we get. They just have to be normal. And good, but really normal. No more psychopaths, felons, old guys, cry babies, smart asses or sociopaths. Just a normal player for once please.

GOLDMAN: Haw haw haw. There are no sociopaths on the Stranglers.

SITTCH: Hey!

GOLDMAN: Right, there's Sittch, but no one else.

YOST: Alright guys, we're up.

GOLDMAN: I want Duff.

YOST: Duff was picked first.

GOLDMAN: Then I want someone for cheap. *beep beep* Ooh! Time for my afternoon money bath. Come, Sittchy.

SITTCH: Ruff ruff.

YOST: Okay. I think we should nab Randy Marmol. He's-

PEPPER: Don't care give me the background check.

YOST: Alright, he come from a wealthy enough family, was a B- student in school, no criminal record and seemed normal enough when I talked to him.

PEPPER: Okay, and he's got some good breaking balls, good enough speed... I think he could serve as a quality reliever in a few years with our aging bullpen.

YOST: Yes, and he's got a lot of room to improve. 4-star potential at least.

PEPPER: I like it. Call it in.

BUDDY SELIG: With the 30th pick of the 2010 MLB first year draft, the Scranton Stranglers select, Randy Marmol.

PEPPER: Alright, fielders are completely out of the question for our next pick.

YOST: I know. Ever since 2008, up and coming hitters have absolutely sucked.

PEPPER: So another pitcher. Let's look at this McDaniel kid.

YOST: Ryan McDaniel. Same as the last guy. Good stuff, quality speed. Actually with some stamina training, this guy could be a starter soon.

PEPPER: I like the sound of that. And, he's normal too, correct?

YOST: Yeah. So, it's agreed, then?

PEPPER: Agreed.

Meet Scranton's newest additions, Randy Marmol and Ryan McDaniel

Marmol
Top spd: 91
Ctrl: F
Stam: C
CB: 3
Fork: 3

McDaniel
Top spd: 93
Ctrl: F
Stam: C
Scb: 3
Splt: 4

A steal for the last pick of the draft. :)

Yeah you're both allowed.

Sgt. Pepper told me to tell you guys that you can be their agents only if you keep them away from your other clients. He doesn't want the new guys tainted in any way.

Wilson invites them both over to his house for some bonding time, since they are both fellow pitchers. :razz:

LOOK WHAT'S BACK, *(censored)*

VOICE: Pablo, Pablo wake up!

PABLO: What the heck? Where am I?

VOICE: You'll be in a more peaceful place soon...
Pablo saw the light ahead and realized he was riding on the back of an angel.
PABLO: What? Hell, no! I'm not finished yet!
Luckily, Pablo was not nicknamed "The Secret Weapon" for nothing. He always had a secret weapon up his sleeve. This weapon was secret in that it always changed and it was always something no one would use as a weapon. It's effectiveness varied. This time, Pablo pulled out a framed picture of Johnny Manziel and Drake. He hit the angel on the halo of it and was able to escape.
PABLO: Killing an angel might mean that I'm going to Hell, but at least I'll live to see the finale to Breaking Bad.
Yes we know we're behind on that. Pablo didn't buy into all the hype at first, but he started watching the series on Netflix and was hooked. In fact, he missed like three games watching the show. No one spoil it for him.
Pablo descended to a suburban baseball field. It looked like someone's backyard and it looked familiar to Pablo.
PABLO: Ah, the good old Backyard Baseball League. Welp, time to start dominating again.
Pabs stepped up to the plate.
PABLO: Gimme the old heater, Tony!
The only one on the pitcher's mound was Mr. Clanky, robot and commissioner of this Backyard League. He shot a ball right at Pablo's head.

VOICE: Pablo Sanchez, it is an honor to meet you.

PABLO: Oh, no. Not another angel.

ANGEL: No, no I'm not just any angel. I'm your guardian angel. And you might recognize me from somewhere else too...

PABLO: Uhh... Where.

The angel whistled nonchalantly and acted totally casual as he dropped a baseball card on the ground and totally inadvertandly gestured towards it.

PABLO: Oh... You're Sean Casey?

SEAN CASEY: At your service.

PABLO: Alright, yeah, I have a question,

SEAN: You wanna know why I don't have my wings yet, don't you?

PABLO: Uh, no. I wanna know why a mediocre baseball player is a guardian angel.

SEAN: What?! I was NOT mediocre!

PABLO: Whatever you say, pal.

SEAN: You know, I don't have to bring you back to life.

PABLO: Well, obviously I'm not dead. I don't need your help.

SEAN: Sure, you're not dead. You never have been. But you gave up. You need a good kick in the ass, Pablo. People have lost hope for your return.

PABLO: What are you talking about, what happened to me? Did I get hit in the head with a baseball? Was I injured in a fight against Albert Pujols? Was this because of a valiant effort I put up?

SEAN: No, actually, you passed out after eating, like, a bunch of hotdogs or something.

PABLO: Then why do I need a guardian angel?

SEAN: Because things have changed in Scranton. Like, a lot. And not everyone is happy.

To be continued...
