There’s a big difference between video games and reality. Playing Sega Sports’ World Series Baseball 2K2 on the obsolete-before-its-time Dreamcast with sports dude Kevin, I trounced him by the football-esque score of 25-18 (Padres over Brewers in Miller Park). The game was even closer than the score shows because we were figuring out how to pitch.

I think we set a record in having the Padres pitchers gang up and peg the same Brewer batter five times. Good thing it’s just a digital game (and the computerized players don’t know how to rush the mound…). In the end, it wasn’t a good strategy for the Padres, I think the dude scored 2 or 3 times.
