    Sorry, this is not a fanfic update:

    Morín Super -- No-Hits Istanbul
    Saturday, April 23rd, 2072
    Excitement reigned at Enquist Park today as Buffalo Murricans hurler Benjamin Morín tossed a baseball rarity -- a no-hitter.

    After defeating the Istanbul Ottomans, 4-0, he was swamped by reporters in the clubhouse for postgame comments.

    "I'm just glad to be here," Morín said. "Today I just went right at the Ottomans as hard as I could, as long as I could."

    Morín chalked up 4 strikeouts and allowed no walks in his superb performance.

    "I don't think they could have stopped him with a howitzer today," said Buffalo manager Lloyd Carr.

    Weird, Yankee gets a no-hitter against his former team. I smell collusion. Lifetime bans incoming!

    Given my history, I've been colluding to make Istanbul awful since 2037, I just happened to win a championship by accident one year

    Tragic News as Castro's Elective Surgery Goes Bad
    Saturday, February 18th, 2073
    In a press conference today, Pepe Castro announced his sudden retirement. Said Castro, "The fact of the matter is that the surgery has left me legally blind in one eye. Though my right eye works perfectly, I've lost the depth perception needed to gauge a pitch. I knew going into the surgery that complications were possible. I'm disheartened to leave the game I love but go forward knowing there are good things around the bend. Castro is 28.

    More to come on this breaking story.

    Was it an off the field injury?

    Yeah. He had elective eye surgery (despite having 50 eye, but whatever), which had him as injured for 7 weeks. I'm not sure exactly how that storyline plays out but I figured it either would boost his eye rating or cause this to happen, so I let it run. I had just signed him to a nice extension, but alas.

    At least I can write cybernetic augmentation black market fanfic about him now.

    Should have nuked the story from the start, enacting the @ZackMills rule

    Off field injuries are two weeks max, but it’s your call.

    Yeah I know, but whatevs. If he was a prospect I might be more upset but he gets to ride off in the sunset with a ring. Just wish the event dropped his EYE to 20 instead, lol

    Technically he tied for it with Mosca, who I didn't expect him to catch up to, but:

    Zamora had a great season. Mosca really fell off at the end of the season, giving up 4+ in his last three starts, losing two. My whole team has been slumping lately, I expect it to be another series win for Buffalo.
