Ridiculous Videogame Sports Statistics

Whether through the fact that the games were unbalanced or because of a person's preference for using one set of players repeatedly, sometimes sports videogames tend to play out in ways that are entirely contradictory to the real world. Take, for example, the 1998 Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Playing Mike Piazza's Strike Zone (a game made in 1998 for the Nintendo 64). In this current season, about halfway through, I have managed to get Dennis Springer, a knuckleballer for them in their inaugural season, to these statistics:

Wins: 15
Losses: 5
ERA: 1.97

Compare that with his real life stats that season:

Wins: 3
Losses: 11
ERA: 5.45

So yeah, he's doing a lot better.
