Fix the scoring please?


Fix the scoring please?

As you all are aware say a team is in a tie game run and loads the bases and the next batter triples - he gets credit for a 3B and 1 RBI so far so good, however what if that batter only tripled twice in 400 AB? You just wasted 1 of those 2 triples on a single - kinda rude - he should be credited with a single which is what he actually got

First priority should be fixing Sin’s obsession with the minutiae of PC’s SIM engine. The first stop, Sin, is admitting that you have a problem.

lol @gus

I'm not sure if the "wasted" triple comment was a joke, but just want to make sure everyone knows it's not a "wasted" triple anymore than you "waste" a six if you roll a dice and it comes up six.

Re: Fix the scoring please?

It was in jest, but its also a valid fact the real question is

if the SIM is stat driven a batter hit 5 triples in 500 AB his odds to triple are 1 in 100.

if he starts the season going 1 for 4 with a triple then his true odds of hitting a triple drop to 1 in 124

if the SIM doesn't factor in how many triples he has already hit, then his odds remain 1 in 100

so which is it?

Re: Fix the scoring please?

It’s the latter. When you’re just playing odds with decent sample sizes, past results don’t have to impact future outcomes. He has the same odds of hitting a triple each time he steps to the plate. That’s also how the game can have an element of randomness.

I was once in a 70's league where duane kuiper hit 5 homers , that's all the proof you need. If you don't know who he is look him up , worst hr ratio in mlb history

Re: Fix the scoring please?

I know who Duane Kuiper is and his HR futility
