My question for you guys is:
Would it be more interesting for you to watch a computer vs computer simulation, or to have me play as one of the teams vs the computer?
If so, which team?
Let me know in the poll.
Going to run the whole world series today so we will know EXACTLY how it will play out ahead of time.
Start time TBD, will post in the chat when first pitch is imminent. I'm shooting for somewhere between 1pm to 2pm pacific time.

Also, leave comments regarding what settings you'd like to see used such as Difficulty, Wind, Injuries, Contact Zone, etc...
And any suggestions for pitching rotations will be very helpful too.

P.S. Disclosure: I'm rooting for the Tribe.

FYI, my typical settings:
Wind: Yes
Injuries: No
Difficulty: Powerful everything
Errors: On
Weather: Fair
Pitch Speed: Fast
Replay Frequency: Normal
Sweet spot Cursor: OFF (can turn it on, which leads to fewer strikeouts, but a less "realistic" simulation, if that even matters to you guys)

I think a CPU vs. CPU with those settings would be interesting to watch.

Update: still working on rosters, start time pushed back to 3 or 4 pacific.
This is pretty tedious, but I want it to be precise.
Thanks for patience.
And enthusiasm!

technical difficulties have forced me to merely play the games in Watch mode and report on the results.

Game 1: Cubs 5, Indians 1--Cubs lead series 1-0
W: Lester
L: Kluber
HRs: CLE: Napoli
CHI: Russell
the Indians struggled to get anything going against Cubs pitching, and Corey Kluber was removed in the 4th inning.


Game 2: Indians 6, Cubs 3--Series tied 1-1
W: Clevinger
L: Arrietta
HRs: CLE: Santana, Napoli
CHI: Russell, Russell
Carlos Santana led the game off with a dinger and the Tribe never trailed.
Addy Russell homered for the second and third time in the series in a losing effort.

After Carlos Santana sent the game to extras with a solo shot in the 9th, Chris Coglan capped off a thrilling game with a walk off shot into the center field bleachers.

So far your Game 1 and 2 predictions have been the opposite of right, so I'm gonna predict the Indians have a 3-1 lead after Game 4.
