All-Star Break, season 12

We’ve reached the All-Star Break of Season 12.

Division 1 is a tight division. All eight teams are within 7 games, and the top five within 3 games. Two-time defending champion Italy is lingering in sixth place. Of course, last year they won the title as a #6 seed, so no one is writing them off!

In D2, Greece and Mexico have been battling for the top seed and auto-promotion all season, with Greece taking the lead into the break. The top 4 and bottom 4 of the division have separated themselves a bit, which will mean a wild finish as team jockey for seeding, home-field advantage, and to stay out of the dreaded 7th and 8th spots.

D3 has Egypt and Croatia are close, with the USA just behind and pulling away from the rest of the pack. Croatia is looking to earn their first promotion, but the others won’t make it easy.

After a slow start, Ryan O’Hearn is adding up the HRs as usual, though lagging behind teammates Laureano and Schwartz in the MVP race. India’s Tatis is putting together another incredible season. D1 pitchers dominate the Cy Young race, with past winners Buehler and Kazmar in top spots, along with Mongolia’s Feliciano.

SCM yeah that's a good point - you're probably right then the back-end steals and steals against non-catchers balance out the teams that are trying to steal 3rd or ARE stealing against plus arms.... saying most people don't isn't necessarily true, remember there are a LOT of bot teams now, plus people who just don't change that setting.

Anyway, yeah, the big challenge here like we've discussed is that SB success rate just isn't a valid stat UNLESS we start restricting how often a player can steal. (And the argument that we don't do that with At Bats we've discussed before - it's not Apples to Apples....) So the guy who had a 67% rate on 14 attempts, that's fine, but then you're only going to be allowed to have him steal 14 times all season. Is that better? I don't know, I'm torn honestly. I think I've said before if I were rebuilding the sim from scratch I would probably build it that way, more akin to the real steal attempts by a player. A "PC 2.0" engine, that is probably how I'd do it. But even there, the problem is we don't manage the games, so we don't get to pick when we burn one of those 14 attempts.

BTW, I'd probably change at bat logic too... like if you had a guy who only batted 120 times in a season, once he goes over that, he starts getting penalized.

But again, these are things if I change them willy nilly, there would be a mutiny.
