The following are our final rosters alive in the Statis-Pro baseball playoffs for the 2023 projected pitchers, as well as the 2023 projected batters. We wrap up the Statis-Pro half of our season with these final playoff games before switching to our Value Add Basketball Game half of the season.
The Braves dominated the actual MLB Regular Season as well as dominating along with the Dodgers the Statis-Pro season. After taking almost a week off for the bye before their actual playoff series, it appears they were rusty and lost. No such rust in the game of course, where they defeated the Phillies that had upset them in the real playoffs - as Ronald Acuna hit 3 homers and went 6 of 10 in Games 3 and 4 to clinch.
Meanwhile the Cubs missed the playoffs by one game to the Diamondbacks in the real season, while it was the Diamondbacks missing by one game in the Statis-Pro season. In the real season the DBacks made it all the way to the World Series, and now the Cubs will try to do the same in the Statis-Pro series. The Astros won the Statis-Pro AL after winning the real 2022 World Series and then coming one game away in 2023.
The ball park home run factor chart indicates the DEEP drives in final playoff games in Atlanta's Truist Park with be a home run on 11-43, and a deep fly caught with all runners advancing on a 44-88. When the NLCS moves to Chicago's Wrigley Field for Game 3, DEEP drives are homers on 11-27. Once the Cubs-Braves winner goes to Houston in the World Series DEEP drives will be homers on 11-26. The last figure always surprises players because balls hit down either line are often homers but the rest of the park is a definite pitchers park.
The free Statis-Pro game is under the rosters of the three teams. Each player is linked to their stats and profiles at Baseball Reference. If there are numbers by the name it means we did not actually have a projected card, so they get one of the temporary cards at the end of the player cards based on their OPS or ERA. We included a photo of Astros extra cards at the bottom of this blog, and you can see why Astros fans were frustrated Yainer Diaz was not starting at catcher, since his OPS of 0.846 just missed giving him the best temporary cards possible.
