WIS V All-Time Baseball Draft: HARRRRRRRIFIC

11,942 posts in this topic

Thanks Ulysses.

I know the season started off a bit blah, but by the end there were definately a few teams that seperated themselves from the pack. Much as Eephus' team would have been deserving of the Championship, I doubt that I will have another season like this one - felt like the '86 Mets. If this wasnt going to be the year, I dont know what it would have taken to get over the hump.

As always, I wish we had a bit more live play but all in all a fun season.

Eephus - did you get anything for WS runner up? I got a bunch of credits, might turn it in for a $25 dollar gift certificate which is an option on the site (pretty cool one, I might add)

Good job, Koya :thumbup:

Okay ... so now, after the season's been played, is there anything about your team that you think specifically put you over the top? I'm eying up all the low-AB bench guys you took with freakish batting stats.

In this sim, with so much talent spread around. I'd have bet good money that the best team would've settled around 95 wins. Seemed to be on that track for the first third of the season, too. I just wonder if the fact that one team became such a huge outlier was a fluke, or if there was some specific identifiable factor that kept your team at such a high level.

I just wonder if the fact that one team became such a huge outlier was a fluke, or if there was some specific identifiable factor that kept your team at such a high level.

Its hard to pinpoint one or two factors - Having two 400 inning, top flight starters in the first two rounds really helped - that gave me two "free" bench slots. This let me take more low inning pitchers as well as the freak low AB guys.

That said, I BARELY used Spencer and Gates Brown during the season. Fortunately, I had enough of a lead to save them for the playoffs, and they were unbelievable during that run. I tried this to a degree in the last SIM, but since I cut my ABs and IPs too tight, I didnt even make the playoffs.

The regular season success was more a product of what I look for in offensive players - and with the huge pool of offensive talent, I was able to get that. When I picked Al Simmons for example, I thought he would do very well - he did GREAT. Was top 5 MVP most of the second half. Many chided the pick, but he was very much my type of player and did a fantastic job.

All in all, it is tough to pinpoint one thing. I doubt Ill have another season like this - everything clicked. One of the top offenses and one of the top pitching staffs... but having those low AB guys saved for the playoffs might have put me over the top as Eephus and I were neck and neck in that series (in fact, I think I only outscored him by one run over the course of the 7 games).

The key to my season really taking off, however, was Willie Mays. Billy Hamilton was a huge early season disappointment. Once I put in Willie Mays (who hit about .300 with a .530 or so SLG with great defense in a big park and a lot of XBH) the lineup came together and really became a consistent force.

So, not sure if that helps. Just happened to have some good picks, and some good luck. As far as the postseason, it is a crapshoot to some degree. I had three elimination games including two in the first round and game 7 of the world series. I easily could have lost any of those... the regular season is what Im most proud of because things just clicked and never really let off. Luckily I had enough in the tank and enough good breaks to get the series.

Congrats Koya. You had the best team during the season but the Series was nip and tuck.I was on vacation for the last two rounds of the playoffs. I was able to be online enough to juggle my rotation. Silver King took the ball a _lot_ during the playoffs and was the main reason we got as far as we did. But he got rocked early in the decider.

Thanks Eeph. Good to see you are still alive and kickin'Well, at least alive. How was vacation? :pics: That last game was weird. Walter Johnson vs. King, two top 5 Cy Young candidates, and both got ripped. Great series all in all. Definately could have gone either way.

Nothing is forever on the internets.

Also, I was quite the angry young man in that time period.

As opposed to now when you are an angry middle aged man?

It should be obvious to you guys by now that I don't like being put on trial for my past deeds constantly.
