CyberStat #2- This card predicted that the AL West Division would have ended in a tie between the Rangers and Athletics. In a one-game playoff, the Rangers would have supposedly won to advance.
CyberStat #3- This card predicted that the '94 ALDS would have resulted in the Indians over the Yankees and the Rangers over the White Sox.
CyberStat #4- This cards predicted that the '94 NLDS would have resulted in the Braves over the Reds and the Dodgers over the Expos.
CyberStat #5- This card predicted that the '94 ALCS would have resulted in the Indians over the Rangers.
CyberStat #6- This card predicted that the '94 NLCS would have resulted in the Braves over the Dodgers.
CyberStat #7- This card predicted that the '94 WS would have resulted in the Braves over the Indians. I find this very interesting as this would exactly the case in the '95 WS.
Although I really like this bonus insert set, I don't agree with the logic of the results. Since I place all of my set binders in order from best to worst team, I had already determined a method of organizing my 1994 Topps set. It was actually very simple. Since there was no postseason in 1994, I organized my set binder by team winning percentage only. Below, I took the division leaders, added a wild card team, and chose a winner based on winning perentage.
Montreal Expos (.649) over New York Yankees (.620)
1994 League Championship Series
NL: Expos (.649) over Reds (.579)
AL: Yankees (.620) over White Sox (.593)
1994 Division Championship Series
#1 NL East Division Expos (.649) over NL Wild Card Braves (.596)
#2 NL Central Division Reds (.579) over #3 NL West Division Dodgers (.509)
#1 AL East Division Yankees (.620) over AL Wild Card Indians (.584)
#2 AL Central Division White Sox (.593) over #3 AL West Division Rangers (.456)
I've actually reorganized the front end of my '94T set binder as a result of this post. Originally, I had it organized strictly by team win percentage, which is unrealistic. By chance, I had a team from each league in front of my binder, but the LCS and DS teams were not reflected in the order. Although I do organize my non-postseason team strictly by win percentage, the postseason teams are organized by level of achievement before win percentage.
In this case, the first eight teams in my binder are the Expos, Yankees, White Sox, Reds, Braves, Indians, Dodgers, and then Rangers. The rest of the teams afterwards are organized strictly by win percentage.
So, what about the 1904 World Series? That's simple. The New York Giants forfeited the game to the Boston Americans (Red Sox) because the Giants thought they were too good to play the Americans (Red Sox). That, or they were scared. Either way, the World Series challenge between the NL and AL had already began the previous year, and would continue for every year afterward (except in 1994). The Boston Red Sox were the 1904 World Series Champions as far as I'm concerned. Too bad I don't have any 1904 cards to reorganize.
