Baseball Daily FAQ

PostThu Mar 31, 2016 4:13 pm

Q: If a player goes 2-4 on opening day, will his card show a .500 batting average?

A: No, cards are initially based heavily on projections. Current season stats and recent performance (hot/cold) get added in as well but how many PA/IP they have and at what point of the season it is also make a difference.

Q: One of my players has an injury on one side of the card but not the other!!

A: Although this doesn't happen with regular card sets, these cards need to be computed daily without any manual intervention. That means that you may see oddities such as this one where the computer program ran into an error and was not able to place a certain reading such as an injury. As a new card is created every day, you may see an injury rating missing for one day but go right back on the next.

Q: Will the add/drop deadline still exist even though our player's value might tank before the playoffs?

A: Yes, the deadline for Baseball Daily leagues will still be Game 142. Part of the player set's strategy should be to hold enough bench players to withstand injuries and declining cards as you prepare for your playoff run.

Q: Will the cards at the end of the year be the same as the 2016 card set released next year?

A: No, these cards likely won't look anything like next year's card set. The formula to create Baseball Daily cards is trying to accurately portray the ability of that player every day of the season. So, if a player goes into a cold streak that will be portrayed in his Daily Card until he breaks out of it. For example, if a player such as Albert Pujols goes April without hitting a home run, it doesn't mean he can't do it. His HR% on the card would shrink every day a new card is created but he still will have a chance to homer because he still has the ability to do so, it's just perhaps less than it was to start the season.
