Curtis Granderson


Curtis Granderson

So if this is a simulation how is it Tim Lincecum, Curtis Granderson and Brady Anderson to name just a few ALWAYS finish ahead of actual great players? Lincecum's 2009 season isn't better than many, many, many pitchers' seasons they're allegedly playing in this "game" yet Lincecum ends up better than them 80 to 90% of the time. Even the times Lincecum is bad, he's still a starter level performer for any team.

Brady Anderson constantly has a .750 to near or over .800 OPS. Curtis Granderson and his 24 offense rating is constantly very near or over .700 OPS when HOF players who had MUCH better seasons offensively are .575 to .650 OPS, meaning those HOF'ers are constantly AVERAGE and Granderson is a star because Granderson's defense is better than tons of the guys OPSing the same thing he is.

This alleged sim somehow finds that 80 or 90 percent of the time Tim Lincecum and Brady Anderson are the actual HOF players. Go look at players in your leagues and on the FA list that batted .297 or above and slugged .637 or above. Well over 80% of the time Brady Anderson out OPSes them by a hundred points and Granderson is also out OPSing them by 25 to 50 points well OVER 80% of the time, even though Granderson's season base is .302/.552.

None of this could happen this often in an actual simulation. Punching in all the better numbers of a hundred guys and certain guys always rising above anyway. In an actual simulation my Tim Lincecum wouldn't beat my opponents Clayton Kershaw twice in back to back starts. However, Lincecum being better than Kershaw is totally destroyed if you turn on intentional walks. Again, impossible that happens in an actual simulation. Tim Lincecum intentionally walked people in 2009 as does EVERY pitcher EVERY year he ever pitches.

This is NOT a simulation. No simulation would have Lincecum lights out UNTIL you turn on intentional walks. Intentional walks are to get the BEST hitters out of the way so you can face a weaker hitter. If Lincecum dominates facing all batters but somehow falls totally apart when he's walking Jeff Bagwell or Albert Pujols, walks those guys then gets destroyed by the same hitters he was dominating BEFORE the intentional walks, THEN NOT A SIMULATON!!! That sabotage has to be programmed into the "game" NOT A SIMULATON when he was dominating while pitching to Bagwell and Pujols but gets killed when pitching around them to only face the WORSE hitters.

Not Lincecum specific. Many pitchers get better after walks is on and many get worse. So there are pitchers who were getting killed by the weak hitters when walking Bagwell and Pujols who somehow get BETTER when they actually pitch to those 2 guys. It's exactly OPPOSITE of what should happen, meaning THIS IS NOT A SIMULATION!!! You can reply with your pretzel logic "defending" this insanity but I won't be reading it. I'm done playing this garbage now. Go get up Lincecum, Granderson and Anderson ASAP baseball know-nothings and time wasters.

Re: Curtis Granderson

Just leave the site…your complaints are so illogical.

Go create your own site…or fire up the video games that you can quit when you fail…or do you send TheShow or 2K whiny complaints too??

I don’t really see his argument…whining about his own players and Granderson, Lincecum, and Anderson are NOT lighting the world on fire…not even close.

Re: Curtis Granderson

@Run yeah just to be clear when he made this rant Lincecum had the 15th worst WHIP in the league out of 52 pitchers. And it's still early.

We're obviously dealing with something beyond normal cognitive functions here. I hope this person can get help, but also hope he just leaves the site.

Sometimes that winds up being more drama than it's worth.

Re: Re: Curtis Granderson

He has another all time great league where lincecum is doing well (for him) and Anderson as well (for him) but slump bust usage so OPS is high but average is only .225 or so.

Re: Curtis Granderson

At first this charade was slightly humorous. But now it's just downright annoying. Grow up and get a f***ing life dude. No one gives a s*** about what you're saying

If you really despised this website as much as you've been saying, you'd be long gone at this point. Which tells me you're just doing this to stir up trouble

I've NEVER been an advocate for censoring anyone, no matter how despicable the things they say are, but even my patience has its limits. Gbacci, please for the love of God block this guy from the boards already. And I'm pretty damn sure I'm not the only one who is thinking this way

Re: Curtis Granderson

On his other team Lincecum has been on fire for 3 of 7 starts so that’s pretty unusual. Anderson has the worst OBP in his lineup despite slump buster.

Most of us want a little bit of randomness, except this guy apparently.
