Pittsburgh Killing it During Win-Streak

They are currently at 13 wins in a row! If they win today's 3rd game, they will be at 14. With Houston clearly at Gold-standard status and Milwaukee once again beating the odds, the addition of Pittsburgh in the race for the NL could make things interesting in 2025. The primary suspects for the turn...

Re: crazy

It looks like Crispy is going to be one of those rare guys that seem to decline before the actual OS34 decline is supposed to occur. I always hate it when those happen to me. You are hoping for the guy having that MVP-type season at the top of their grades and because of some roll of the dice the du...

Re: Joe Mason and Billy Munoz Toss Perfect Games on the Same Day!!

Also, check this out for trivia: Mason was selected #2 overall by the Cleveland franchise in 2009. Munoz was selected #1 overall by the Cleveland franchise in 2015. Munoz was traded to STL in 2019 while Cleveland was trying to make a questionable playoff push that was ultimately unsuccessful. Mason ...

Re: Billy Munoz Throws Perfect Game

Who? :D JK I always enjoy seeing the strange pitchers that SimD tends to churn out no-hitters or perfect games. I know A+/B is pretty good for a starter, but Munoz up until this season has been a bit of a disappointment. Hopefully, this year he will finally start to pitch like a #1 overall pick is s...

Re: Please fix Minimum Endurance to Start

Here's an even more egregious example of LHP pitching completely differently than a typical "real-MLB southpaw pitcher" would perform. I'm sure the small sample size argument is more than applicable, but 1.29/1.21 WHIP difference in performance vs LHB/vs RHB is just illogical. And yes, I know that n...

Re: Congrats Houston

Congrats to Houston on the 2nd championship with this current group of players. Coming back from a 3-0 hole is quite the accomplishment. In regards to Washington, the nature of BCNEvan's squad is turning out to be rather "90's Atlanta Braves"-like in their stunning success over a long period while f...

Re: Please fix Minimum Endurance to Start

I'm also going to piggyback on Michael1's suggestion in a way that I think is relevant. Too often LHPs don't show enough of an advantage versus LH hitters. I've had a fair number of LHPs turn into decent enough pitchers, but in general RHPs are much more valuable to carry. In real life baseball, LHP...

Re: Please fix Minimum Endurance to Start

Just doing a quick study, it looks like Montreal started this guy twice in the NLCS and 14 times in the playoffs in totality. I'm assuming this is a tactic to get the other team to start hitters that are ready to face a LHP. That certainly is a duplicitous move, but it is fairly easily countered (ju...

Re: Please fix Minimum Endurance to Start

Here's the problem I have with making "this change" to the playoffs. How often do teams in the modern era go with starters on 3 days rest? In my opinion, that is the same as having pitchers with low Endurance ratings start playoff games. Last postseason, managers were pulling starters immediately af...

Re: Mickey Mantle League Prospect I Just Drafted

With that Range, I hope you're training him for LF which, coincidentally, is where most of those tweets come from. I was really hoping to find some scrub named Donald, Donnie, or Don in the same draft. Closest I could find was Don Ogrodowski , who would certainly not be representative of Trump's pr...
