2010 World Series Game Two – REPLAY   Leave a comment

game two of the 2010 world series was played using Statis Pro Advanced thanks to the quick, hard work of Derrick Beckner.  he sent me a sneak preview of the 2010 set with the two world series teams.  the rest of this series i’ll be alternating between Brian’s set based on the original AH style (but still with improvements) and Derrick’s set (with L/R splits and added controls).  both are excellent games and i don’t think you could go wrong with either gaming system.  they both feel like Statis Pro and that is simply awesome.

after the debacle of game one by the Rangers (in the replay), they had high hopes that their pitching would hold in this game.  they would still have to face the pitching strong Giants, but could they get to them with their bats? let’s find out …

a fantastic game.  truly a pitchers duel and that’s what i was hoping for.  i didn’t realize it until Wilson was pulled, but he only gave up three hits — all in the first inning.  the Giants just couldn’t figure him out after that.  he struck out ten in the nine innings before turning the ball over to Feliz.  Cain struggled a bit in the second and fourth inning, but did fine overall.  it may have been a mistake going to the bench in the seventh, but you’re to manage for the regulation game, not manage to get into extra innings.  i was trying to get the lead right then.  it didn’t happen and it was to the pen.  after we got to the eleventh, i should have brought in Wilson and will be second guessed on that.  he was ready, but i was thinking this game might be going even longer.  after the homer i figured let Mota finish his mess.  and THAT is why i’m not a major league manager.  it was a stupid mistake and it won’t happen again.  next time i’ll get the big man in there and use the others only if it gets to that point.  i guess the consolation is the homer came on a PB:10 so it would have been regardless of who was pitching.  at least this way the ‘Beard’ can’t say he lost the game.  not much of a consolation, but it’s all i have.  i feel like Ron Washington right now.

two games in and we’re all knotted at one game apiece.  the rest of this series should be PRE-play.  stop on by tomorrow afternoon to see how game three turned out.
