The All-Star Game began in 1933 as a spectacle built largely around an outfielder by the name of Babe Ruth. Over the years, fans knew they could expect to see Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams together in the American League outfield, or Hank Aaron and Willie Mays together in the National League outfield. ...

Angered by the disrespect shown to HOF'ers and all stars in open leagues, many legends took to the streets.
Since when do pitchers that have a WHIP under 1.20, a W9 of under 2.2 and K9 of over 5 suddenly pitch as follows...
ERA = 6.75 WHIP = 3 W9 = 6 K9 = 2.98
Everyone is loading up on high OBP players and 1894 - 95 pitchers and they are more successful than the guy who has a well balanced team full of MVP's and Hall of Famers.
I disagree with the sim getting better with every change. This last change went in the opposite direction. TOO much emphasis on the catchers arm strength, NOT enough "normalization" for "cookie" deadball era pitchers. And please, increase the value (a lot) of the high OBP players.
ALSO, fielding ratings for pre 1940's players needs to be tweeked a bit ( I had a A+/A fielder commit 20 errors in a season, and several managers had early players with D/D fielders that commited under 10), that makes NO sense.
Just some thoughts. Thanks for the post. I am enjoying this one.

Mickey Mantle and " Ozark Ike ", Gus Zernial This photo was placed on the 1952 Topps baseball card of Gus Zernial, signifying his six home runs in three games in May 1951. Later after the photo was taken, Zernial hit his seventh homer in four games to tie an American League record.

Did you read any of this thread before you posted? It has nothing to do with your comments.

<<Defense seems to matter way, way too much in this sim, to my admittedly less experienced eye.>>
I agree. It is getting to the point that you cannot win without Mostly great defensive players. Further, range factors are based so much on statistics that we ignore anecdotal evidence for statistical. Thus, in this sim Jimmy Johnston '23 is a better SS than Honus Wagner and Ashburn is better in CF than Duke Snider. It is way easier to win with Ashburn than with Mays, Mantle, or Dimaggio because his defense is better, and you have so much more money to buy other hitters with.
However, that being said, I love the game. Thanks WIS.
