Looking at their real life stats, they all were pretty damn bad.
I would think that at least one of those pitchers would have gotten beaten up at some point, but so far, not even close. I know people will say small sample size, but 7 lousy pitchers all pitch like that? 2 different teams, same results? We do a lot better against elite pitchers, none of whom have combined stats that look anywhere near what the low ranked players have.
Most of these pitchers have ERA's over 9 when they come to play us which shows that when games are simmed, results tend to be more true to life than played out games. I don't believe that all 7 of these pitchers suddenly got hot at the same time.
As far as my teams, I dare not bring anyone in rated under 70.
Looking at their stats, keep in mind that all of them have h/9 ratings in the 30's & 40's. Same with the k/9 and HR/9. So what ratings does the game look at when deciding outcomes? Really, pitchers with those kind of ratings don't even belong in the Majors, but in The Show, the look like HOFers.
My question is, has anyone's team been able to hit these really low rated pitchers?
