With this game imitating real life, Pablo Sandoval was a problem at the hot corner. He had a bad attitude, wouldn't accept a demotion, I was unable to trade him, so I acquired David Freese for 3rd base and released the Panda.
Chris Sale was a big part of the team's 19-8 record in July and was recognized for it
The Red Sox maintained at least a 5 game lead throughout the summer, and the year end standings were very similar to what they were in midseason.
The division winners all mimicked the MLB 2017 season, with the Indians and Dodgers having the best record in the league.
As far as individual performances, our own Craig Kimbrel had a great season, leading the league in saves, although he didn't perform quite as well as he did in real life. Aaron Judge led the league in strikeouts, while belting 41 home runs.
Corey Kluber had a fantastic OOTP season, but just like Kimbrel's it wasn't quite as spectacular as what Indians fans witnessed in Ohio. And of course, Mike Trout was as good as he always is.\
