Depth Charts 9 Top NL Teams - Cards for New Reds and Other Stars

 At our Statis-Pro 48-game mark we relegated both the San Diego Padres - in 11th place of 11 teams in our league and 10th in actual MLB play - and the New York Mets - who are not in the playoff mix despite having the easiest schedule to date without playing the top three teams in the league even before losing Pham, Verlander and Scherzer. 

That leaves nine teams for the rest of our season, with their games to play on the grid below. Below we print the depth chart for these nine teams, and if a player changed teams, is a new card or is no longer with the team, we note that in parenthesis by the player. At each position, we start with the starting player (or No. 1 pitcher or reliever) and then go to the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th best - then do the same at each position. However, that order is the actual MLB depth chart, in many cases the Statis-Pro card that is used to start the games might be different.

We pasted all the new cards for those nine teams below, and you can see why the Reds are so much better as a team this year with one star after another as shown below. First,the depth charts for the nine teams continuing in our league. We do not use cards if the player has an "IL60" by them. If we believe a player with a card might be on the team, we list that the card is not on the roster but they might be checking back. An (up) means the player is playing much better than the projections on which his card was based and thus the PB is adjusted one in his favor every plate appearance (+1 for a pitcher, -1 for batter) and vice versa for (down) if they are playing well below the projections.

The links to play the game and print out cards are at the bottom of the blog.
