Resurgence Cardinals Allowed Back from relegation - Face Verlander

 The St. Louis Cardinals are back in our Statis-Pro league.  They started so badly this season we dropped them from the 10 NL teams we originally picked to play through our Statis-Pro Baseball season and added the Pittsburgh Pirates after their start, but now we will keep both teams for an 11-team Statis-Pro NL season. A couple of notes:

1. Below are the teams we included in both our AL season (being played in Montana) and NL season (played in Milwaukee). To check on where teams rank and make these decisions, we run the following calculation - we weigh this year's record and run differential twice, then last year's same two factors twice, and then calculate them all together and rank teams. None of the other nine relegated teams in the two Statis-Pro leagues were in the top seven in their respective league, but the Cardinals recent 13-5 mark put them back up to No. 5 in the NL, so we added them back in with the other green teams.

2. Below that image is the setup for their first game back against the Mets. The five players in the upper left are pretty good St. Louis cards that are not on the current roster so are currently not used in the game.

3. The next image is the list of current players we went from and we have marked if each player for the Cardinals, as well as for the Dodgers and Braves who had not yet been checked, had an existing card or needed a replacement card in addition to those like the five in #2 above that were dropped because they were not on the list. 

4. Only two new cards were added from checking the three teams against current rosters. Kevin Pillar is not on the Braves roster, and the next image shows his card being printed from page 107 of this set of Batters' cards. The other player is the Dodgers lefty Victor Gonzalez, who did not have a card so we looked up his Zips projected ERA (ERA 4.06) and made up a standard card by adding his name and that he is left handed and only a relief pitcher (thus SR/RR: 0/4).  He is now on page 46 of the Statis-Pro pitcher cards. Now we are ready to play!

Her is the process ... Developing.
