With the MLB season less than a week away, baseball’s most popular video game has released their ratings, including both individual and team rankings. Although the Chicago Cubs are the reigning World Series champions and have a good shot of making it back to the Fall Classic, MLB The Show 17 has rated the Cleveland Indians as their best team heading into the upcoming season.

In order to tide over baseball fans’ anxiety and excitement ahead of Sunday’s Opening Day, the game will be released on Tuesday, five days before the season begins. With graphics that make the game seem real, it’s almost like you’re playing in real life. Everything from the player’s appearance, their unique batting stance, or the scoreboard at Progressive Field.

The Indians have three players rated 90 or higher, which is tied for the MLB lead with the Dodgers, Cubs, Giants, and Nationals. Cleveland has the most players rated 85 or higher with seven. For what it’s worth, the Athletics, Padres, and Phillies don’t have a single player rated above 84.

If the ratings mean anything, Cleveland is going to dominate the AL Central and runaway with the division title. Now, if their ratings are correct, Indians fans across the world are going to have one hell of an October (and November).

The most interesting rating seems to be Indians left fielder Michael Brantley, who only played in 11 games in 2016 after rushing back from his shoulder injury. Not only was Brantley given an 86 rating, but is third-best among left fielders across the league. Not only is he fighting to get back, but his production once he does return could be hard to justify why he is rated that high.

Here’s a player-by-player breakdown of almost every Indians player’s ratings:
