    JFace907 - Brandon S. - soxandgators

    Here we are two months into the season and the race is beginning to show who is going to be a contender, and who is a pretender.

    As been previously stated, this a two horse race.

    Some additional graphs that stand out:

    Looks like Royals are trying to out run their britches in Kansas City.

    Hmmm... KC again getting caught off the bag and in no man's land.

    We have a trend developing here - throwing at Tiger's batters evidently.

    Those caught stealing numbers are absurd. Wonder how many runs its costing KC.

    Give me some time, my team might stink up the place now, but we were doing great before the past 2 sims. I lost 6 starters for those 2 sims, and now everyone is getting healthy again, even though i lost my best pitcher Alex White for the rest of the year. I might lack depth, but when everyone is healthy i wont have a 1-9 or 2-8 sim anymore.

    Id also like to point out that Fmode11 has 2 good sims and doesnt know how to act ! ;)

    We all have our injuries problems and I'm certain you're the only one running around using it as an excuse. We don't call a 2-7 sim a good sim in Detroit, but they evidently do in Kansas City. You also can't hide the fact the Royals can't do something as simple as run the bases correctly. But good luck out there, even the #teepeetankjob has a better record than you :bag:

    Current Inter-divisional Record:

    Cleveland: 11-17
    Chicago: 14-13
    Kansas City: 7-17
    Minnesota: 17-8
    Detroit: 16-12

    More Stolen Bases graphs... We know KC has been caught stealing an absurd amount more than the rest of the division but it is also important to know how many times are they successful because it may help to explain why they get caught so often. So we updated stats from last night's sim and produced updated graphs-- Let's take a look:

    caugh tstealing.PNG


    SB.PNG

    Stolen Base Success Rate:
    Cleveland - 70%
    Chicago - 66%
    Detroit - 84%
    Kansas City - 61%
    Minnesota - 81%

    Conclusion - Kansas City is slow :dead:

    These attributes make me sad :(
    It's resulting in my lack of success

    That my friends, is Markus Mason. Currently 7/15 in Stolen Base Attempts. If this were football i'd call this man Josh Gordon, fast as hell, but can only run a straight line (eh Shaun Mason )

    That has nothing to do with anything in your post. Perhaps explain to me why the stats you mentioned are relevant? I appreciate the effort though (y)

    For having the worst SP in the AL -- my top two pitchers seem to do well against you :)

    Very good work.

    The bottom line is that stuff like Caught Stealing (or errors) is the baseball equivalent of a turnover in basketball or football. They are giveaways and rediculously hard to make up for; my son's a basketball player and he has to report his turnover total to me every single game. Poor kid.

    Through end of June and into July:

    Twins are pulling away... With no one looking to be able to stop them. A constant staple at the top of the power rankings, the Twins have built a considerable lead at the mid-way point of the season. Let's see what the 2nd half of the season holds.

    Worst MLB team plays in the AL West :wtf: . Even the #teepeetankjob JFace907 has a better record than Texas. Plus you add in that both divisions have nearly identical OA Win % your statement is :hilarious:

    What say you Ken Welsch? Let's check the AL West thread.... err wait

    IMHO I think that the AL Central is pretty much average. The Twins are the only team above .500, but the Tigers are only 1 game under. Almost every division has only 2 games above .500.

    The AL West is solid, but Seattle started the season on fire but have been 15-19 since the beginning of June, so unfortunately for them, they're heading the wrong direction. The Angels are solid - not great, not bad and have been consistently hovering around .500, and it will be interesting to see if they can string a few together to get into 2nd place. Obviously, the 'Stros are the class of that division, which pisses me off because they SMOKED ME in the playoffs last year.

    I don't see a huge difference between the two divisions, personally.

    Twice ;).

    I just think its rare to see 4 out of 5 teams in a division under .500 after the all-star break. Not comparing it to any division really.
