Quick Hit: I Wish This Was RBI Baseball 14

Boy do I wish this season was RBI Baseball 14, things would be so much better. I am not much of a gamer anymore but I did purchase RBI Baseball 14 for my iPhone, $4.99 in the app store case you were wondering, and I am loving every minute of it. With two kids, a wife, a 40+ hour a week job, another writing job on the side, and you guys I don’t get much time to play anymore but I did finally finish the month of April with surprising statistics.

Keep in mind that I could not hit for crap in my first four games for whatever reason. I was either early on everything, I pounded perfect pitches into the ground, or the defense just flat out robbed me. I also pretty much skipped the tutorial and thought I could do it my own way and started the season 1-4. I finished the month of April 20-7 and lead the American League East by 1.5 games over the Boston Red Sox and have the best record in the American League. Two teams, the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Colorado Rockies, have better records than me in the National League.

My best pitcher by far has been Hiroki Kuroda. I could face the suckiest(not a word but stay with me because I used it for emphasis) batter in the game and still give up a single using CC Sabathia in this game making me wonder if I just suck with him or if the game is that realistic. My best hitter has been Alfonso Soriano and my best clutch hitter has been Brian Roberts. Yeah, they need a roster update and no, it’s not realistic. I just suck with Sabathia.  

Imagine if RBI Baseball were real and Alfonso Soriano and Brian Roberts had great seasons with the Yankees. Imagine if Tanaka was still pitching and Yangervis Solarte was coming off the bench somehow with a 1.000 batting average in nine at bats. Imagine if the Yankees made the playoffs this season.
