The easiest team that I could find for this was the Arizona Diamondbacks. This guide will take you through each card for them:

* Doug Davis - Pitch a Complete Game (Min 9 inning game) and win with Doug Davis: Fairly easy against a bad team. I suggest turning pitcher fatigue and injuries off just to be safe.
* Orlando Hudson - Get 4 defensive assists with Orlando Hudson: Should fall during one of your attempts to get other cards. Unlocks at the conclusion of the game.
* Chad Tracy - Get 2 RBI with Chad Tracy: Another pretty simple one. You may want to edit him to increase his power to be safe, though.
* Stephen Drew - Score 2 Runs with Stephen Drew: Edit his contact hitting and speed to make this a bit easier on you.
* Eric Byrnes - Steal 2 bases with Eric Byrnes: Edit his speed if you want. He should be quick enough by default to regularly steal 2nd. 3rd is a bit of a risk, though.
* Brandon Webb - Pitch a shutout with Brandon Webb (Min 7 inning game): Should fall easily playing against a poor team.
* Randy Johnson - Get 8 strikeouts and credit for the win with Randy Johnson (Min 7 inning game): A bit tougher. Edit the speed of his fastball to the max, and the control of every pitch to the max as well. Adjust your sliders so that the CPU is more likely to take strikes. With those settings, it's rather easy.
* Livan Hernandez - Earn a win with Livan Hernandez (Min 7 inning game): Self-explanatory. Play against a bad club such as the Royals, or a minor league team.
* Danny Haren - Get 10 strikeouts and credit for the win with Danny Haren (Min 7 inning game): A bit tougher. Edit the speed of his fastball to the max, and the control of every pitch to the max as well. Adjust your sliders so that the CPU is more likely to take strikes. With those settings, it's rather easy.
* Micah Owings - Hit a homerun with Micah Owings: Edit him so that his power is as high as possible. Play a game with the DH on, and as soon as the DH spot comes up, insert him in as a pinch hitter. This will allow you to keep him in the lineup while going for one of the other pitchers' cards.
* Brandon Lyon - Get credit for a hold with Brandon Lyon (Min 9 inning game): Bring him in late in the game (but before the 9th). Have him pitch at least one inning without giving up the lead (may be without surrendering a run). Full description of what constitutes a hold is available in the comment below.
* Chris Young - Lead off the game with a homerun with Chris Young: Make sure you're the road team for this one. It's a matter of getting lucky. If you fail to hit a homerun, you can choose restart from the pause menu to try again without losing anything else from the game.

The only other thing that might make this easier on you is to edit every single player on a random team so that they have F ratings for Contact, Power, Speed, and Strikeouts. This will make them strikeout far more, and will also make it so that they won't hit the ball very far, effectively preventing them from scoring runs.
