My Pitcher is a God (knock on wood)


My Pitcher is a God (knock on wood)

I'm not sure I've ever seen a pitcher have this amount of success, periodt. In 21 games, he's gone 19-1 (!!!) with an ERA of 2.13 and WHIP of 1.04. Checking the league's single season records, the number to beat for wins is at 21 and that's with 34 games. For reference, there are still over 60+ games to be played.

Any of you guys experience this before?

I'm sure you'll get lots of responses to this since with so many seasons played there are some fun statistical anomalies. One of my favorite was in a best of the 90's league, one of my starters got injured so I put 57 ranked Darryl Kile in. He ended up making 28 starts and finished 20-5 with a 1.93 ERA and won the Cy Young. I venture to guess that Kile hasn't won too many Cy Youngs on this page. :)

After playing this game for a little over a year I have noticed some things like that happen (although not to that extreme). I wonder if it's somehow built into the program that if a guy randomly performs unusually well his numbers get nudged and he goes on a roll and perhaps he can keep rolling.

My favorite bizzaro result was having Sergio Mitre come in 3rd in the Cy Young in a custom league based on the 2010 season.

His 7-21, 5.06 ERA the previous year for you team is just as much of an anomaly in the other direction. His 2 season average is what should be expected. If we have learned anything from Bret Saberhagen, don't draft him next season!
