SwinginSoriano Posted March 24, 2006 Share Posted March 24, 2006 Just finished the regular season with these guys. (Playing MVP 45 days straight = 162 games) and of course, as with most of our dynasties these guys made the playoffs. Sometimes they played spectacularly, sometimes they really sucked and played with no heart, most of the time they won 2-0. That's the kind of team this was, always a homerun away from losing the game. Luckily, my bullpen (as you will see) was as solid as possible and my starters had microscopic ERAs, and still plenty of losses. Since this is the dynasty forums, this is a good place to post useless stuff like this. If you don't care, just go to another topic where someone asks why the green part of the pitch meter disappeared! Anyway, here are a ton of pictures, useless descriptions, and other things that will take 10 minutes of your life that you'll never get back. Here's my boy John Patterson in mid-season form. Believe it or not, for much of the season his ERA was under 1. That quickly changed as my team played sub .500 ball from the start of interleague play to mid-August, when I finally got on a tear again. The W-L numbers on the calenders month by month are decieving and don't reflect some of the hopeless struggles my team faced. Not really hopeless, they were 10 games ahead pretty much the entire time so they decided to play like they didn't give a ****. Frank Robinson agreed to the players not to argue every single call (I can't help myself, it's as funny as hell) and since everything had been fine for the Nats. Here's Patterson again, with all the fun stats. Other than the stats you see here, Patterson only allowed 4.77 hits per 9 innings, a .57 WHIP, and about a 36.67 K/BB ratio. If this was real he'd cost about 15 million in "Simleagues" if you guys know what that is. Now here's Livan Hernandez. Did you know? You can actually hear Livan Hernandez get fatter like Tommy Callahan. Anyway, El Duque's fatter half brother got himself a GG, 20 wins, 10 losses, 301 Ks, and a great ERA to go with it. He even got to go yard during the season! The real Cristian Guzman promised us all that he was the "New Guzie". Well, this New Guzie delivered. With two 2-homerun games, 41 stolen bases (48 times caught stealing), a game where he swiped six bags (got caught once), and a robust .691 OPS. New Guzie delievered, when he wasn't botching plays in the field (though he probably only had around 10 errors), he was walking... walking... walking... Along with 176 walks, he had a .442 OBP and a lovely BA to go with it. After going hitless for 4 games, my strategy was to just foul off pitches, and walk to first. A lot of stupid pitchers helped this Guzie become like Barry Bonds... Well, a lot like what a season from Barry would be like if he had an arm amputated. Here's your NL MVP, Cy Young, Fireman, single season saves king Chad Cordero. When he isn't at bars with teammated Gary Majewski, he was kicking ***. Kicking *** he did, he only blew one save all season against the Orioles. In fact, that was the only save he blew! Otherwise, the 9th inning involved a lot of guys walking back to the dugout, and sometimes Ryan Zimmerman throwing a ball past JT Snow. Now here's Y4L*'s favorite Second baseman Alfonso Soriano! After playing around ten games in leftfield, Swingin' Soriano hit the DL with a left hip flexor injury. Things looked bad for Soriano, then Jose Vidro busted his knee and would miss rest of the season. Since then, everything went Soriano. Getting himself 30 bombs, 51 steals, 67 RBIs, 69 Ks (that would have made an unentertaining Sori-ometer), 45 walks with a .363 OBP, in all about 409 at bats and 130 games. Somehow, Soriano only made 4 errors in the field, proving how easy it is to field 2B in MVP. Sori sat out against some lefties (due to Damian Jackson's effectiveness) and will probably cash a huge virtual check. The real Soriano will probably get his usual 120 Ks, have four errors in left by the end of April, and frown when he gets a contract of lesser value than Rafael Furcal. * Only applies if Alfonso Soriano wasn't himself. My microscopic team ERA. The NL East. Damn I wish, they'll probably kick my *** in the World Series. At least I took 2/3 in the interleague series before being taken to school by Boston. I'll tell you guys when I get eliminated in a short-series. Hope you enjoyed reading this! :p Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
