Players to Watch

Post by TheRiddler on Sat Jan 24, 2009 2:16 am

I have noticed a couple of players whose performance appeared to exceed their real life history.

Tom Glavine (of the Riddler'sMB) performed during the Sim season 1 beyond his expectations and beyond the expectations of almost every other pitcher. As far as hitters, Frank Robinson (currently of FieldOfDreams) produced:
Frank RobinsonCSrf24.313.383.574
with 37 HRs and a league leading 146 RBIs


What players have you noted that we should keep an eye on ?

The Riddler is trying to weasel out sleeper picks from us. I see Bill Dineen won 17 games.

I was looking through the results and someone must have hit Ed Walsh with a line drive up the middle, he only lasted 5 games. Crying or Very sad

By the way, Ernie Lombardi really sucked. angry My team also hit into the most DPs.

Riddler this is for you. ninja

I think I figured out what happened to Ed Walsh. I was looking at more stats and saw that Carl Mays was at the top of the Hit Batters list, one must have been Ed and finished him off. Sad

There should be an injury log for the whole. Or maybe that's just available on the sim and isn't published on the website form. I lost Wilbur Wood for 27 games because of injury due to a fight.

Sim Season 1 saw baseball's top pitchers in wins unable to put together credible seasons for senior HOFers.
Specifically, Cy Young, Walter Johnson, Alexander, Mathewson, Galvin, Spahn and Nichols combined to yield a 83-100 won-loss record, with an ERA above 4.00. They also struck out five per contest, while yielding slightly over one home run per game.

Young wound up with a 7-17 season, Johnson managed a 15-12 record, while Alexander carried a 17-25 won-loss statistic. Mathewson was better at 11 and 7, but he was not used as a starter. Galvin, Spahn and Nichols fared no better; finishing 33-39 collectively.

Something to watch. Rather high draft picks are given up for this group.

For that matter Koufax's record for Sim Season 1 was 13-12. Striking out 183 in 207 innings - hardly the numbers one would give up a premium draft selection for.
