MLB 11 The Show's Fantasy 11 Predictions

Back in college, when a group of friends ran out of things to wager on, they'd set a certain NFL video game franchise on auto-pilot and bet on the outcomes of the games. Apparently, we were well ahead of our time.

While certain pro leagues will argue that fantasy sports equates to gambling, just in time for your fantasy baseball draft, MLB 11 The Show is tapping into our dorm room concept.

The game simulated the up-coming season and is giving a peek at the results for standard 5x5 leagues.

Here's the dish...

2011 Season Highlights using PlayStation’s MLB 11 The Show:

  • Trevor Cahill - 18-7, 2.80 ERA (leads league)
  • Brandon Webb - 14-8, 220 IP, 3.23 ERA, 5 CG
  • CC Sabathia - 19 wins, 2.83 ERA, 7 CG
  • Tim Lincecum - 225 K, 2.63 ERA

Braves pitching gives the Phils a run in the NL East!

  • Tim Hudson - 17 wins, 2.49 ERA
  • Tommy Hanson - 18 wins, 3.26 ERA
  • Derek Lowe - 15 wins
  • Jonny Venters - 51 saves
The Usual Suspects
  • Prince Fielder - 47 HR, 111 RBI, .288 BA
  • Albert Pujols - 42 HR, 131 RBI, .321
  • Joey Votto - 34 HR, 109 RBI, .327
  • Troy Tulowitzki - 41 HR, 143 RBI, .341
  • Adrian Gonzalez - 34 HR, 138 RBI, .304
  • Paul Konerko - 35 HR, 122 RBI
When I bounced these numbers off of much smarter baseball people than me, I think The Extra 2% author Jonah Keri put it best, "Ah yes, 220 IP for Brandon Webb."

But, hey, nice effort!
