How can the White Sox be last in fielding ratings? They had the best fielding percentage and fewest errors in the American League last year. And not a single significant defensive stat in the bottom third.

Actually Chemistry means very little in baseball. Sure it helps, but nothing compared to NHL, NBA, or NFL. MLB teams have whole new rosters every 2-3 years anyways. Giants just played well at that right time, simple as that. There was nothing magical about it.

LOL, that's what I was thinking too. White Sox were one of the best defensive teams in baseball last year.....yet have the 2nd worst ratings in the game...lol.

Only spots of suspect defense are LF and 1B. CF and C are average. SS, 3B, 2B, RF, and our pitchers are ALL plus defensive positions for this team......

Guess I'll have to adjust ratings again. They always short Alexei and Beckham on defense, despite being possibly the best DP combo in baseball.

IM biggest Cardinals fan there is and I can tell you this the Giants run was pretty magical .Also there is no way the Cardinals win the 2011 WS without the team chemistry they had.


P.S. Do you not remember "Happy Flight"?

If team chemistry is such a big deal then why do teams get a whole new roster every 2-3 years? Wouldn't they rather keep their players to have that "team chemistry"? Sorry, I don't believe in team chemistry in baseball as much as I do in basketball or football. I think you can put the best teams together and they'll dominate right away, unlike in basketball or even football. The only player that needs to have good team chemistry is the catcher really. But if you put a team together of 9 superstars in baseball they'll dominate. If you put together a team of a HOF PG, best center in the league, one of the best players ever, and a top 10 PF they might not even make the playoffs.

I know it sounds good putting cliches and feel good stories in your beliefs, but that doesn't mean they are always true.

Giants were a good team that made the playoffs and played well when it mattered. I don't see any magic there. Jesus wasn't walking on water or anything last October.

Did Justin Upton get traded to the Braves in time to be included on the Show's roster?

I believe Ramone said Upton was squeezed in at the last minute before rosters locked.

So this is your logic for 2010 and 2012, where they had the same dominant pitching staff, and won the world series? Give me a break. The Giants pitching staff which has stayed pretty much the same since 2010, won them the world series (with some timely hitting of course). Never discount the value of playing together as a team in any sport.

I just don't quite understand how the Rockies are 13th when they were the 3rd worst team in baseball last year

I thought the same thing. With a productive offseason I thought we look better than we did last year, but still there are too many question marks to have us ranked so high. I realize the ranking is probably the potential for what we have, fast guys or power guys that CAN produce but in reality fall flat sometimes.

They should make all players on the sox injury prone on the game, because we all know thats how it is in real life .
I have a feeling that John Ferrell will make a difference on the pitching staff and that the new strategy of building team chemistry will work out moreso than having a team of big headed superstars.

At least I don't have to make big moves to ensure my red sox will be contenders in the Franchise mode! haha

I'm guessing MLB the Show doesn't think too highly of the Tigers' bullpen and its rookie closer then.

ETA

Apparently the Show has Phil Coke as closer. Huh.
 
# 333 foreverasnake @ 02/27/13 02:46 PM
This is ridiculous, The World Champions 17th, and the team voted most likely to win the world series is 5th, and Marlins are better than Jays on defense?? Somebody clearly has no idea what theyre doing
 
# 334 Metsfan31 @ 02/27/13 04:03 PM
My Mets 28th? Wow they really are expecting no production this year.
 
# 335 Metsfan31 @ 02/27/13 04:03 PM
The Blue Jays should be a little better than that!

I'd switch the Blue Jays and Red Sox.

Yeah it is called they were good and once you make the playoffs anything could happen. There was no magical team chemistry that put them over the edge. You don't think every team has little antics and pre-game rituals they do as a team? That doesn't make you a good team though.

Trust me, I am about team chemistry and cohesion, but it matters very little in baseball. I coach both baseball and basketball and I can tell the difference. If players aren't getting along in baseball it had no impact on the game. If players weren't getting along in basketball it made a direct impact. If you have the talent, you'll win in baseball. The only exception is the catcher really. It is important they are smart and can work with any pitcher.

But i thought the Tigers had more talented players going into the world series than the Giants? Isn't that why they were the heavy favorites? You should just change your argument to "they were lucky". That's what most of the Giants haters say. Yeah luck will totally win you two world series in three years, fools. Good pitching, defense, and team chemistry in the playoffs won the world series.
 
# 340 cardinalbird7 @ 02/27/13 08:43 PM
I don't get what you are saying? All I said was Team Chemistry was not the reason the Giants won. You are putting words into my mouth as if I am saying the Giants were lucky and did not deserve it. They were a good team that got hot at the right time. It has nothing to do with team chemistry... give me a break. It just so happens when teams are winning they can come up with these antics or pre-game rituals. However if you are never winning then things like this never come up.

In fact...enlighten me. Give me an example of their team chemistry and how that transitioned onto the field? I love listening to cliches in every sports. Are you trying to tell me the Reds, Cardinals, and Tigers did not have team Chemistry and that the players hated each other or did not get along with one another?

Also no one answered my question from above....if team chemistry is such a huge deal in MLB then why don't teams try to resign players that have been playing with one another over the course of a few seasons?
