Thanks for the insights. I read the posts you referred to and it was a spirited conversation to say the least

The rest of our division looks like it'll be exciting, with four teams battling for 1st place. The only thing keeping us in the race is our ability to prevent walks and HR, we've had the fewest hits in the division and defensively we're still bad.

The odds of there being a team winning a cup back to back is simply equal to the probability of a team winning a single cup.

Let’s say there are 100 teams that could win.
That means there’s a 1/100 chance that it will be a back to back victory, because someone from that 100 had to have won last year.

My Red Sox are playing against Ohtani right now.

. . . And Mookie Betts just hit a home run off of him!

Thanks to everyone for your kind words and congratulations.

Buried deep in the bowels of this forum, I imagine there is still a post or two about how bad this team was when I inherited it. The team I acquired was on its way to losing nearly 100 games ... in Division 6. We were downright awful.

Since then, it's been a very long, and sometimes frustrating, journey to piece together a team that is able to accomplish what this one has.

Regardless of the odds of winning two in a row, my message to everyone is this: If I can do it, so can you. Be patient and you'll get there.

As far as that championship series, if you'd asked me beforehand if I could win it with future Hall of Famer Duarte out with an injury, and Hines and Hebert combining for 0 extra base hits, I would've laughed and said no way. But Watanabe, Salinas and others stepped up and carried us.

Finally, the newly expanded trophy case has been finished and the Cup trophies are on display, just in time for Denver's visit tonight!

Grand slams in both games kind of helps things. The first one was hit by pitch, hit by pitch, walk, hit it out of the park. That's how you lose a game.

It is one in 10,000 to win back to back cups with 100 teams
It is one in 100 for any team to win one
Use this scenario
100 lottery balls in one machine each representing a team and you have to pick two
Odds are one in 9,900 to get both correct- 100x99
Use 2 machines of 100 balls, representing 2 seasons and having to pick one team out of each
It now is 100x100
One out of 10,000
And congrats

Thanks. How can I tell whether a minor league player should be moved up or down a league? And for that matter, whether or not a younger player on my current major league roster who doesn't get much starting experience might be better off in AAA? A player gets more training benefits in the minors, right?

Also, are there any good stadium capacity, and dimension references/guidelines anywhere?

Its 1 in 10,000 for a specific team to win back to back.

Its 1 in 100 for any team in the league to win back to back. In other words, its 1 in a 100 for the winner of the previous season to win in the following season.

Completely depends on how the question is phrased. This is precisely why statistics are more often used to "prove" a point than to learn anything real.

In this game with 756 teams, it is 1 in 576,536 for a specific team to win back to back cups, but only 1 in 756 for the previous years winner to repeat. That is of course assuming all teams are equal and have an equal chance to win, which is not true. So the odds are actually much better than that.

Beyond merits and demerits, my hitters are all in a slump as if they were a collective macro-hitter who combines their own skills.
