Anyways, too bad the manager doesn't have much of an impact on team ranking or the O's would be right up there. Still just a team with dookie starting pitching and Kevin Gregg closing out ball games.

Pitching has never been solid for the O's in the past decade.

I've always said there's no reason to argue ratings, but I think the Red Sox ranking just made me drop my jaw.

By Kevin Gregg you mean Jim Johnson right? 50 saves? He wasn't amazing but he's a pretty good pitcher.

A lot of the Red Sox players had down years in 2012: Ellsbury, Victorino, Napoli, Lester, Buchholz, Bard. Pedroia was injured a lot, and Big Papi only played half of the games. Add to that Lackey, who was pretty bad in 2011, but was a good pitcher before.

So, I think they made those players better then they were in 2012, because Lester is clearly not a 5.0 ERA pitcher ect... If you look at the Red Sox starters they were pretty good in 2011 and before:

Lester: potentially an ACE, but a solid NO 2 at least
Buchholz: same as Lester
Dempster: good no 3
Lackey: good in 2009 and before
Doubront: high strikeout rate, rookie

This is a very good rotation if you look at Carrer stats, instead of 2012.

Just look at MIke Napoli, he hit .320 in 2011, then .220 in 2012. how good he will be? Probably between the two, slightly even better. Ellsbury had an MVP caliber season in 2011, then injury hit in 2012.

If you look at these players, pre 2012, then you get a top 5 team in the Show...

Real life will tell, if these players are going to bounce back or not, but game makers have to rely on carrer stats, instead just 1 year, and of course they can't tell the future.

So I think this list is just fine, but with OSFM rosters there will be no problems
Most of what you say above is correct.

Let's pretend to forget for a moment the way the show computes the ratings is flawed for a moment (ie: putting too much emphasis on how good a closer is for your pitching overall/ going 60% off your starting lineup and 40% off your bench to compute your hitting overall)

What people don't understand in these rankings is that it's based off EVERY team being 100% healthy.

Are the Red Sox when 100% healthy a top 3 overall team? No. But if they're healthy they are probably a top 10 overall team.

Let's look at last year...they lose 2 of their 3 best players to injury. Ellsbury in April and Ortiz in July (ortiz would have been top 3 in mvp voting at the time of the injury. If you don't believe me look at his #'s last year. I don't think people realize HOW AMAZING a season david ortiz was having in 2012 before he got injured)

So my point is....the Red Sox as an organization have VERY little depth...so they had no chance in plugging in the production of losing 2 of their 3 best players due to injury last year.

These team ratings are assuming ALL players are healthy. And say what you want about the 2012 Red Sox, they were DESIMATED last year with some key injuries on offense. (Ortiz, Ellsbury, Pedroia for 20+ games, Ross for 30+ games, Crawford for 100+ games, etc.)

Rankings Schmankings.

Hugely subjective and i hold little weight to them (but yeah, the Red Sox lol), but it is amusing seeing people get so worked up over them and the homerism on display.

Lets get to the real wonder of this thread...

http://www.operationsports.com/chrisjohnson83 has a full retail copy of the game!

My man, the floor is yours...

What im actually saying is, gameplay vids, UNINTERRUPTED gameplay vids, would be hugely appreciated by all of us in the community!

Your call though http://www.operationsports.com/chrisjohnson83

Just pulling your leg really.

Anything you could chuck up, pics/vids would be great.

Gregg not so much but he is gone.

I really like Johnson. May not strike out many but he doesn't give them much to hit.

It made my jaw drop and I am a huge redsox fan (hence the name)

Giants #17 Tigers #1 And here I thought the Giants won the World Series.
 
# 114 dl2518 @ 02/22/13 04:29 PM
The Giants should be atleast a top 10 team if not top 5. They have won 2 of the last 3 World Series WTF.

The Pitching and Defense needs to be ranked higher.

According to these ranking the Giants are the 4th best team in the NL West, what a joke.
 
# 115 StraightEdge @ 02/22/13 04:30 PM
The Red Sox are number 3 in all of baseball??? They're the fourth best team in the AL East for crying out loud. I can see this game's ratings are going to need a ton of work, ugh.
 
# 116 BBallcoach @ 02/22/13 04:34 PM
As a redsox fan I will tell you one thing... there is no way we should be that high I was hoping for around a 14-16 spot.

Some mom & pop shops sell them early too. I guess they dont care about release dates.
I worked at Game crazy too. I remember playing NCAA 06 10 days before release. we had an awesome manager than basically made us put the cash in the store so we "bought it" then ring it up on the release date. We did that all the time. If you work at a game store with a cool manager, you can get games early.
