2012 Cleveland Indians Simulation Results


I don't know if any of my fellow Tribe fans here play, or have even heard of Whatifsports.com, but I have several teams running at a time, especially in the off-season when I don't have "real baseball" to watch. For $12 you can search through a database of players from 1885-2011 and select any combination of 25 players in an $80 million dollar salary cap. Each player is assigned a salary which is calculated based on dozens of statistics. Owners looking for more of a challenge can play in "Theme Leagues." In the most recent league I was in, the rules called for you to claim a team - In my case the Tribe - and draft 25 players from their current 40 man roster. Each player could be "twisted." I.E. I don't have to draft Travis Hafner from 2011, I can take the 2006 version. This simulation would "play out" the 2012 regular season. Here is how my team fared...

Lineup:

2009 Asdrubal Cabrera, SS - 612 AB, .308/.354/.411, 4 HR, 75 RBI, 17 SB.

2010 Shin-Soo Choo, RF - 610 AB, .295/.376/.416, 14 HR, 83 RBI, 26 SB.

2006 Grady Sizemore, CF - 654 AB, .279/.352/.441, 16 HR, 93 RBI, 22 SB.

2006 Travis Hafner, DH - 516 AB, .307/.425/.531, 26 HR, 110 RBI.

2011 Carlos Santana, C - 615 AB, .251/.358/.412, 18 HR, 94 RBI. Also subbed at 1B.

2008 Jose Lopez, 2B - 643 AB, .288/.306/.369, 8 HR, 85 RBI. Only 2 errors all season.

2011 Jack Hannahan, 1B - 396 AB, .269/.342/.396, 5 HR, 41 RBI. Believe it or not he was my best option at 1B.

2009 Andy LaRoche, 3B - 596 AB, .242/.288/.324, 6 HR, 70 RBI. Believe it or not he was my best option at 3B.

2011 Michael Brantley, LF - 510 AB, .272/.314/.393, 3 HR, 48 RBI, 11 SB.

2011 Joe Smith - 3.47/1.25

2011 Tony Sipp - 3.42/1.20

2007 Rafael Perez - 3.43/1.02

2011 Vinnie Pestano - 2.74/1.11, 41/47 SV

Overall the team went 86-76, three games behind the Kitties. The Phillies, with 1996 Jim Thome starting at 3B defeated the Yankees in the playoffs in 6 games. Not too much info here & not much to discuss...but hey it has been a slow off season thus far figured maybe someone would get a kick out of it.
