My beliefs don't mean I right of wrong but to try to expain what you don't know is BS. Give advicee but quit acting like you part of OOTP. I believe the devs forget or on purpose don't update every card (which they should) because it's overwhelming them, but they put the game out & you got to make everyone happy across the board. They can't & shouldn't pick & choose who to update. Not fair to the $$$$$ people spend on here. I've been with OOTP since Season Ticket & I buy the game every year. But i'm losing confidence in what they doing because (I feel) PT is overwhelming them. I wish they had never made PT bc it will eventually kill OOTP. I hope I can get the courage up to never play PT after this version....It's addicting (they know it) and has taken away from the game I love...OOTP...all about the $$$$$
That's fair about your beliefs. At not point did I tell you how to play the game. I'm not trying to impart something that I believe is wrong. I really am just trying to save the dev's time from stating what they said, because they've said it so many times before. They very well could have "favorites" for lack of a better term and boost ratings to assist in sales. It's what I'd do. Point being, they've still directly stated that at the start of the season, it is weighted heavily on projections (assuming ZIPS), and as the season goes on, live data weighs into it (which also effects ZIPS projections).

I'm a homer as much as anybody. I think Whit is criminally underrated. He's 2nd in the Majors in hits, and led the majors last year. I think Hunter Dozier is underrated too. But when you look at the ZIPS Projections, it's just not favorable to them.

ZIPS wasn't favorable to the Royals in 2014 or 2015 when they went to back to back World Series. I think in both seasons, they projected losing records even.

Unrelated, I just pulled a POTM Tim Anderson card, so hey, maybe conversing with a White Sox fan gave me some luck.
