1970 Baltimore Orioles Season Replay – April

It is time for another season replay.  This time I will be playing the 1970 Baltimore Orioles season.  This team had three twenty game winning pitchers,including winning the American League Championship and the World Series.  The game system I use to play my season replays is Baseball Classics.  The company has introduced a new edition, Vortex.  Using three dice rolls to obtain the game results, this edition provides statistical accuracy that is truly astounding.

   The Orioles finished the month of April with a 15-4 record, which was actually two games better than their actual record.  This would put Baltimore in first place, 3.5 games ahead of the second place Detroit Tigers.  The team batting average has been steadily improving with the implementation of Vortex (especially Frank Robinson who was only hitting .150 prior to the change).  The pitching is downright frightening.  The team ERA is 1.06 with 5 shutouts.  The Minnesota Twins are coming to town to open the month of May.
