'High Heat Major League Baseball 2003' Was WRONG!

by Rainier on Oct. 6, 2002 @ 2:23 a.m. PDT | Filed under News

A few days ago the 3DO Company announced its High Heat video game playoff simulation results. Last year at this time, High Heat accurately predicted the Arizona Diamondbacks World Series victory over the Yankees. This year, according to the average results of 15 playoff simulations, the Yankees will return to glory. The Yankees won the World Series in 53.33% of the simulations (8 times) while the Giants won 26.67% (4 times). Not coincidentally, High Heat also predicted before the 2002 season began that the New York Yankees would be named World Champions in October, defeating the San Francisco Giants. Losing 3 games in a row in a best of 5 series, the Yankees have been DISQUALIFIED.. They are OUT of here! 'High Heat Major League Baseball 2003' predicted it dead wrong. The Angels (coincidentally MY team!) whooped Yankee ass today! GO ANGELS!
