4.) Teams
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

This part of the player's guide has to deal with the teams (obviously.) I will 
give you the team's starting lineup; 
its starting pitchers, its closers, and its position players. NOTE: In 
interleague play, the DH's come in affect to the National League, 
and the DH's come off of affect in the American League. I put the DH's in all of 
the AL teams, and I put the 8 position 
players of the NL in the lineups. Also, after the name of the best player at his 
position, I put Best Catcher, or Best 3rd 
Basemen, etc. (The best players are in my opinion. Alsom there will be two "BEST 
PLAYER" of each position one in NL and one in AL)

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

Well, this section deals with hitting (duh!) Anyway, you should focus on hitting 
a LOT! You should pick a team with at least one fantasy All-Star (like M. Piazza 
or C. Jones.) Always have a guy hitting over .310 or at least .300, and have a 
person with 30+ homers. Oh yeah, a guy with 100+ RBIs wouldn't be that bad. 
Enough about building a team, what about strategies about playing with them. 
Well, here's a huge clue: DON'T ALWAYS GO FOR A LONG BALL!! If you try too much 
for a homer, you'll get a small popup in the infield. Instead, try to get well-
placed liners. It'll be a lot better. You'll drive in a lot more runs, and 
you'll increase your chances of winning. If you see a hole anywhere, don't 
always try to hit it there. Let's say you were hitting in the second spot in the 
lineup and you were a left-handed hitter with little power, but good speed, and 
you find a hole on the right side. The pitch is a fastball tailing away from 
you. What do you do? Two things: Take it for a ball or hit it to the left side. 
You won't be able to pull the ball into the hole, so it's better to hit it where 
you can hit it. If the third basemen or shortstop gets it, your good speed might 
come in handy. And then when you get on base, it will bring up the better power 
hitters with a chance to bring you in. When you are the power hitter with a fast 
runner on, you probably want to try to hit in the outfield. First, work a deep 
count, and figure out the pitches the pitcher has and the order he gives them to 
you. Using that information, try to guess the next pitch. Wherever the pitch 
ends is where you should put your cursor, and then once you swing you'll get a 
powerful base hit into the outfield driving in a run. But let's say you were the 
7th or 8th place hitter in the lineup with a speedy runner on. Three word for 
you: HIT AND RUN. Just try to move the runner, so he'll be in scoring position. 
If a fast runner isn't on, bunt to the first base side. It'll get the runner 
over. If the opposing team goes to second for the force out, chances are you're 
a fast runner, so you'll probably beat out the 3-5-1 double play. I guess that's 
all of the stuff I can think of. But always remember, go for a WELL-PLACED LINE 
DRIVE, and you'll drive in a run. And who knows, it just might be a long ball.

6.) Pitching
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

Pitching to me is the most important part of baseball. You have to have a good 
pitching staff to be successful in baseball. Anyway, here are some tips for 
being a good pitcher in a game:

1.) Don't allow the hitters to guess your pitches (use different pitches in 
different orders).
2.) Don't be afraid to intentionally walk someone.
3.) Always go after the hitters.
4.) Don't be afraid to pitch inside. Just make sure you don't hit too many 
batters, though.
5.) Learn how your pitches break, their speeds, and how your pitches will be 
successful.
6.) Try not to work deep into counts to smart hitters or else they might be able 
to guess your pitches.
7.) Don't surrender to the hitter on a 3-0 count. Who knows? They might be 
swinging!!
8.) Pitch with two balls just like you would with three balls.
9.) Don't pitch too many complete games.
10.) When your stamina is low, keep on working. Even if the hitters are able to 
guess the pitch, they won't know where the pitch is going. If the hitters, 
however, are taking many pitches for balls, bring in someone else.
11.) Don't hit 3 hitters (you'll be ejected).
12.) Don't try too much to get a K. Instead, listen to Greg Maddux. As he once 
said, "I'm trying to make balls look like strikes and make strikes look like 
balls." Well put, Maddux!

Well, that's it for pitching, next is fielding. Oh boy...

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 
7.) Fielding
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

This is the smallest section.

To me, fielding isn't too important, but you still need good fielders. All you 
need to do to have a good fielding team is to find a good fielding team. One 
example is the New York Mets. They have a great shortstop (Rey Ordonez), which 
holds a record of 101 consecutive errorless games played. In the game, what you 
should do is if you see a potential double play, but it'll be a bang-bang play 
at first, and your second basemen who's gonna throw it to first base has 
throwing problems, don't throw it to first! Instead of the game-ending double 
play, it'll more likely be 2 outs, person on second. So, just use your brains, 
and use a great defensive team to be very successful!!

8.) Season
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

The Season is the mode that is the most important. You can go to the playoffs 
from there, and if you get through that, it's World Series time! Just be sure to 
use the tips I gave you for Hitting, Pitching, and Fielding. Also, be sure to 
take a close look at your players. If they aren't doing well, you might want to 
trade or send the back to the minors. If you do, you might want to create a 
player. If they're doing well, look at how they managed their success, and try 
to provide more successful things. Example: If you were the Atlanta Braves, and 
Andruw Jones was hitting awesome in the 2nd spot of the lineup, while Reggie 
Sanders was hitting awful in the 2nd spot, you might want Andruw and Reggie to 
switch places. Also, be sure to remember that you're not only the player, but 
you're also the manager. Always have a balanced team. Don't focus on any one 
thing too much. Example: If your team batting average is .333, but your 
pitchers' combined ERA is 10.03, go ahead and trade an All-Star hitter for a 
pitcher with an ERA under 4.00. Maybe you think that's a bad idea because that 
All-Star hitter is hitting .396, but remember that the rest of your team is 
doing well, too, and you really need a good pitcher to win. If you do trade, and 
you have good fielders, you have a very good chance for a world championship 
team.

9.) General Manager
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

This is a VERY important part of the game. It lets you trade players, send em 
back to the minors, bring em up to the majors, and create them. First let's 
start with the Create-A-Player mode. Well, the title really tells you 
everything, but I'll give you hints to create a great player:
1.) If you have a player struggling at his position, and you don't have very 
good backups at his position, create a player at the struggling person's 
position.
2.) Don't make your team full of created players.
3.) If your created player is struggling, throw him into the minors.
4.) When you go to the screen where you get to decide if he's strong, fast, 
etc., look at what your team really needs, and make him strong in that category. 
Example: If your team has 5 stolen bases at the All-Star break, make your player 
very fast.
5.) Don't make your player 3 years old!! 
Now it's time for signing/releasing players. Before you sign them, make sure 
they're doing better than the player you're releasing. Also, remember to sign a 
few created players here and there. I really can't think of many more hints, but 
you're probably not gonna sign/release players that much.

Now for trading. When you're about to trade, first think about the main people 
you're trading. Let's say you had Andy Ashby, but he wasn't in Cy Young form, 
but he was still okay. Let's also say you saw that Greg Maddux was doing 
awesome, and was having a tremendous year. Well, what you should do is first 
write down Andy Ashby in one column, and Greg Maddux in another. Find out if the 
computer will trade with you. If not, and it'll probably not, either override 
that decision or find out another great player having an okay year like Tom 
Glavine. Well, then you'll be trading Glavine and Ashby for Maddux, which isn't 
a good deal for you. So then think of a okay minor league prospect, and put that 
in the column with Glavine and Ashby. Well, now it's an even worse deal for you, 
so in the column that has Maddux put down a pretty good player like Ryan Klesko. 
So then try to trade Ashby, Glavine, and a minor league prospect for Maddux and 
Klesko. But before you try that trade, try taking away the minor league 
prospect. If the trade works, be happy at what you're getting. If it doesn't, it 
still is a good deal even when giving away a minor league prspect. Anyway, use 
those tips to be successful at trading. Also, if you've made up your mind that 
you're definitely gonna trade people and override any rejected ones, be sure to 
check out my best lineups and starting rotation. Use a team similar to that one 
to easily win the World Series. JJJJJJJJJJJ

10.) Home Run Derby
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

This is really a lot of fun. For those of you who don't know what a home run 
derby is, well, listen up. The home run derby is when all you're trying to do is 
hit a homer. It's either a homerun or an out. If you don't swing it counts as 
nothing. You get to choose how many outs and players you play with. There are an 
equal number of players from the American League as well as the National League. 
After one round is completed, the four best, two best, or the winner goes on to 
the next round depending on how many players you chose.  If you chose two 
players, the game is over. Anyway, in the second round, whoever gets the most 
homers goes on to the third round. If you chose 4 players in all, the game is 
over. In the third round, whoever gets the most homers is the winner. Now some 
tips:

1.) Try to get under the ball a little bit.
2.) Always use powerful players.
3.) Wait for a pitch you can cream; there are no balls/strikes, and unless you 
swing, it counts as nothing.
4.) DON'T BUNT!! (Even though you can't).
5.) Find out which field your player is good at hitting to, and hit it there.
6.) Find out the power alley (the shortest part of the ballpark), and try to hit 
it there.
7.) Before you take your swing, tap B to put the Power Swing Mode on. Get under 
the ball, and you'll homer a guaranteed 6 out of 7 swings.
8.) Again I have to say, DON'T BUNT!! (Even though you can't).

Okay, we're done. Flip the page.

11.) Statistics
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

You should always pay attention to statistics. The main statistics are:

Pitchers:
Wins, Losses, ERA, Opponents Average, WHIP, Innings Pitched, Strikeouts, and 
Walks.

Hitters:
Batting Average, Homeruns, Hits, Slugging Percentage, Doubles, Triples, 
Strikeouts, and Walks.

Fielders:
Errors, Assists, Putouts, Double Plays, Triple Plays and Fielding Percentage.


Now it's time for me to tell you what the statistics mean:

Pitchers:
Wins - How many times a pitcher gets the win in a game.
Losses - How many times a pitcher gets a loss in a game.
ERA - Earned Run Average. How many earned runs you average per game. You divide 
Innings Pitched by Earned Runs given up.
Opponents' Average - Hits yielded divided by at-bats for opponents.
WHIP - How many base runners you average per inning. (Walks + Hits) divided by 
Innings Pitched.
Innings Pitched - How many innings you pitch.
Strikeouts - How many strikeouts you pitched. (DUH)
Walks - If you don't know the answer, you don't know how to play this game. It's 
how many walks you pitch.

Hitters:
Batting Average - Hits divided by innings pitched. It tells you, in decimals, 
the percent of times you get a base hit. Example: If you're hitting .343, you 
get a base hit 34.3% of the time.
Homeruns - How many homers you've hit.
Hits - How many base hits you've got.
Slugging Percentage - Total Bases divided by At-Bats.
Doubles - How many doubles you've got.
Triples - How many triples you've got.
Strikeouts - How many times you've struck out.
Walks - Go ask your mother. How many walks you've got.

Fielders:
Errors - Every time you bobble the ball or something.
Assists - How many times you assist in getting an out.
Putouts - How many times you're the last player in a play, which resulted in an 
out.
Double Plays - When you get two outs in one play.
Triple Plays - When you get three outs in one play.
Fielding Percentage - The percentage of you not getting an error.

Finally, I'm done with these obvious things. Let me tell you something about 
statistics. Stat, Inc. makes the best stats for games.

That was hard! I was trying to find room for Walt Weiss (who made a diving stop 
in a bases loaded jam in the NLCS last year), but I couldn't find room, so I 
decided to at least mention his name.

24.) NChipper10's Best Starting Lineups
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

I am going to give you two lineups, on with the DH and one without, starting 
with the one without.

1.) Roberto Alomar (2B)    -  CLE
2.) Chipper Jones (3B)     -  ATL
3.) Ken Griffey, Jr. (CF)  -  CIN
4.) Alex Rodriguez (SS)    -  SEA
5.) Mark McGwire (1B)      -  STL
6.) Mike Piazza (C)        -  NYM
7.) Sammy Sosa (RF)        -  CHC
8.) Barry Bonds (LF)       -  SF
9.) Pedro Martinez (SP)    -  BOS

Well, the best 2B is Alomar, and he's really fast so I put him leadoff. Chipper 
is the best 3B, and he can run okay, 
and has great power, so I put him 2nd. A-Rod is definitely the best SS, and he 
can hit, so I could put him either 3rd or 
clean up. I went ahead and put him Clean-Up, and so Griffey, Jr. would hit 3rd. 
He is probably the best hitter in the 
majors right now and he's only 31. Big Mac does have lots of homers, but I 
thought A-Rod could put up better numbers, so I 
put McGwire 5th. Piazza or Sosa? PIAZZA. He has an awesome average, many 
homeruns, a ton of RBIs, and he's 31 years of age. 
He is great, and he's better than Sosa. Next, of course is Sosa. Walker or 
Bonds? Bonds. Barry has more homers, more RBIs, 
more runs, and more Stolen Bases. Last, is Pedro.

1.) Craig Biggio (2B)  -  CLE
2.) Chipper Jones (3B)  -  ATL
3.) Ken Griffey, Jr. (CF)  -  CIN
4.) Alex Rodriguez (SS)  -  SEA
5.) Jeff Bagwell (1B)  -  HOU
6.) Manny Ramirez (RF)  -  CLE
7.) Ivan Rodriguez (C)  - CLE
8.) Larry Walker (LF)  -  COL
9.) Rafael Palmeiro (DH)  -  TEX


I'm a NL guy, so I needed some help for this one. Miliman456@aol.com and I still 
made a good lineup with the DH, though. 
For Biggio, he's awesome, so I had to find room for him. If you are going to be 
an AL team, and you'll use the DH a lot, I 
recommend you using Biggio for the times when you're w/o the DH, and use Alomar 
for the times with the DH. For Jones, check
the lineup w/o the DH to find out why I put him as the 2nd place hitter. Okay, 
Griffey usually hits 3rd, so that's where I 
put him. A-Rod would be good hitting clean up at an AL park, because he has lots 
of experience doing that. Bagwell might be
a worse 1B than McGwire, and even though McGwire had 70 HRs that '98 season, I 
had to put Bagwell in there. If you are an AL
team though, and you have the DH most of the time, put McGwire in there and put 
Bagwell in a lineup w/o the DH. What's left?
Catcher, Left Field, and Right Field. Well, I had to find a good right fielder 
in the AL, so I picked Ramirez. The RBI king 
is GREAT. Okay, who's the best AL Catcher? Duh. Pudge had an awesome year last 
year. I had to let Walker have a chance, but 
I also had to put him 8th. Palmeiro is, of course, the best DH in the game. I 
had to put him in because he deserves it. He 
was second in the AL in HRs, behind some unknown guy named Ken Griffey, Jr.    


Well, I guess that's it. Now the best starting rotation. Decisions, decisions...

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 
25.) NChipper10's Best Starting Rotation
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = 

1.) Pedro Martinez
2.) Greg Maddux
3.) Randy Johnson
4.) Roger Clemens
5.) Kevin Millwood

Well, Pedro Martinez is the best, so I had to put him first. Then comes the hard 
part: Maddux, Johnson, Clemens, Millwood, 
or Brown? Well, I had to put Maddux because of all of the groundball outs and Ks 
he gets and because of his awesome ERA and 
WHIP. The reason I didn't pick Johnson is because he walks a lot of batters. The 
reason I picked Johnson over Clemens is 
because both of their weaknesses are that they walk too many hitters, and I 
think Johnson has better stuff. Okay, you're 
probably wondering why I picked Millwood over Brown. Well, Brown has awesome 
stuff, but Millwood held opposing hitters to 
a major league-best .202 average with a 2.68 ERA, while Brown had a 3.00 ERA and 
allowed 210 hits. Overall, Millwood is 
AWESOME. And in ASB 2001, you would like him on your team.
