Looking into 3 variants:
1. Pitcher effecting the outcomes - good pitchers cause batter to re-roll a die x amount of times in a game?
2. Good fielders cover more than 1 possible location 3x's a game - use chips as fielder currency?
3. Creating cards through reverse engineering for at least 4 possible teams - would allow a playoff followed by a "World Series"

Reverse engineering revealed some flaws in the card's ability to reproduce solid statistics. For instance, Pete Rose has the possibility of hitting a homer on a 66 (2.78%) even though he didn't hit one all year. 500 ab's x's 2.78% would give him about 13-14 homers on a full year! Too innacurate for me.

Getting into the numbers to get more accurate cards. I will also revisit the other 2 variants above to tweak them in the upcoming months. I like the simplicity and game play, but I didn't like winning 9-2 by means of 6 home runs.

Another egregious inaccuracy - Mike Schmidt has 128 walks on the year, but has no way to get one in this game.
