MLB 2006 Predicts All-Star Winner
The gang over at 989 simulated the mid-summer classic, where the squad of National League all-stars combined speed on the bases and a prolific 4th inning to pound out an 8-6 victory. Albert Pujols took home the MVP honors after a flawless effort against the best pitchers in the league. Pujols hit a two-run shot in the 4th and added a 2-run double in the 7th to finish the game two for two with 4 RBI. As it stands, in reality, the NL holds a 41-32-2 edge in the 76-year-old tradition, but from the results of the MLB 2006 simulation on PlayStation 2, they look poised to make it 42 victories overall.
In MLB 2006ís Home Run Derby simulation, Ivan Rodriguez, the local favorite, rode home field advantage to a much-celebrated victory. He blasted 9 homeruns in the final round, out slugging all competitors, to the riotous cheers from the fans in an exquisitely detailed recreation of Comerica Park. David Ortiz had the longest shot of the day, making highlight reels as he blasted a pitch 465 feet into right field.
