Realmuto's 2 Caught Steals in 9th Gives Phillies Split With Fielding Light Padres

The Padres Statis-Pro batting and pitching cards look like the best in the NL - but fielding could be the weakness as shown in a season opening split with the Phillies. The CD1 (weakest of 5 fielding ratings) resulted in catcher Aaron Nola not getting to two dribblers to allow singles and allowing stolen bases. Then in the night cap, Fernando Tatis CD1 in Leftfield (he is also a weak shortstop despite his incredible bat) allowed a fly ball to fall in for a double.

On the flip side, the athletic freak JT Realmuto, who is a CD5, TA catcher (strongest) and has a great bat and great speed - gunned down two would be base stealers in the 9th inning of the nightcap to preserve a 3-2 Phillies win and split. Six of our 10 NL teams have now played in the young Statis-Pro season (see grid below) with the Cardinals and Mets 4-2, the Phillies and Padres 3-3 and the Brewers and Reds are 2-4.

Next up will be the best starting pitching card among our teams, with the Braves Spencer Strider (PB 2-9, 23-47 Strikeout range) in Wrigley to face the Cubs.

Reminder Note: To play our own Statis-Pro Baseball games, click and print the batters cards here, then these pitchers' cards and finally the Statis-Pro rules which will have everything you need to play. Also note that we had one error in earlier notes - the adjustments listed at the bottom of some pitcher cards to the batters they face (changing a HR to Out or vice versa) must be used every time they pitch, not just in road games as previously listed. You may notice this season that our blogs are picked up by so when a player is mentioned you can link for their stats by clicking.
