Fakeball Postseason Coverage 2019 OMFG

So I’m an impatient bastard and I want my Canadian Baseball League World Series results NOW.

Thus, rather than simulate day-by-day (like I’ve been doing the whole semester), I just did everything today so that it was all done and we know who won the World Series!


[Edit: I’m uploading this blog from SeaTac, actually, and I just realized that I forgot to save the related images on my flash drive. So since I can’t remember the details off the top of my head, y’all are going to have to wait until I get back to Calgary for the rest of this blog. Stay tuned! This will be updated soon. Sorry!]

Canadian League Baseball: Week 22 Summary

We’re starting to see some teams eliminated from contention! It’s sad. Poor Vancouver. Hamilton’s killing it, though.


Canadian League Baseball: Week 14 Summary


Eventful week!

Simulation Curtis Granderson got his 300th home run.

Simulation Jake Arrieta and Simulation Rich Hill both pitched complete game shutouts.

The All-Star Game happened! The National League beat the Canadian League 5-3.

Canadian League Baseball: Week 13 Summary

I had seven consecutive sub-14-minute miles on my walk today.


Here is baseball.


Hahaha, what the hell, Victoria?


And Simulation Cespedes is hurt. Because of course he is.

Canadian League Baseball: Week 12 Summary


Vroom! Calgary’s still holding on.

Canadian League Baseball: Week 6 Summary

Here are the standings at week 6! I should make a document or something of the 25-man rosters for each team so that anyone who is interested (which is probably just me) can see where all the big players are in this fake league. I could put a link to it on here or something.


Canadian League Baseball: Week 1 Summary

My baseball simulation is super fun, so you’re going to get to here all about it every Sunday. Here are the current standings at the beginning of the season:


It’s still very early!


Math midterms that go from 6:00 – 7:30 and are followed by two and a half hours of grading? Not my favorite way to spend Friday.

BUT HEY, I got home and made a logo for the Canadian Baseball League.


Super creative, right?

I figured a dude threatening to bludgeon a maple leaf with a bat was pretty Canadian.

(MLB, please don’t sue me, I’m just screwing around.)



It’s also the start of my season-long simulation of my fake baseball league, the Canadian Baseball League (CBL)!

So here’s what’s the what: I made up a total of 30* fake teams, put them into leagues and divisions, then had Out of the Park Baseball draft all the current** players and get them on the teams.

So without further ado, here are said teams, divisions, and leagues. I have two leagues that are called the Canadian League (as opposed to the American League) and the National League. Just like real MLB, there are three divisions within each league.

Canadian League


  • Halifax: The Halifax Dreadhawks
  • Newfoundland: The Newfoundland Hounds
  • Ottawa: The Ottawa Mounties
  • Quebec: The Quebec Rebels
  • Saint John: The Saint John Saints


  • Hamilton: The Hamilton Steelers
  • London: The London Chaps
  • Saskatchewan: The Saskatchewan Winds
  • Toronto: The Toronto Blue Jays
  • Winnipeg: The Winnepeg Warriors


  • Anchorage: The Anchorage Timberwolves
  • Calgary: The Calgary Cowboys
  • Edmonton: The Edmonton Oil Barons
  • Victoria: The Victoria Royals
  • Yukon: The Yukon Gold

National League


  • Fredericton: The Fredericton Fighters
  • Montreal: The Montreal Expos
  • Nova Scotia: The Nova Scotia Mariners
  • Nunavut: The Nunavut Miners
  • Prince Edward Island: The Prince Edward Islanders


  • Manitoba: The Manitoba Lakers
  • Ontario: The Ontario Horseshoes
  • Regina: The Regina Giants
  • Thunder Bay: The Thunder Bay Lightning
  • Windsor: The Windsor Welders


  • Alberta: The Alberta Bulls
  • British Columbia: The BC Bears
  • Saskatoon: The Saskatoon Sabers
  • Vancouver: The Vancouver Blues
  • Yellowknife: The Yellowknife Blizzards

I plan on simulating each day of the 2017 season in sync with this year’s actual MLB season. I’ll keep y’all updated on the standings weekly (though I’m sure none of you will actually care) and let you know if there are any simulated versions of current players doing any cool simulated things.

*I kept the Blue Jays and re-added the Expos, so I guess it’s only 28 fake teams, but whatev.
**Well, okay, I have OOTP 18, so my players are the 2017 versions of themselves.


Canadian Baseball League: Team Update


Still trying to think of names for my fake Canadian teams before the season starts. Here’s what I’ve got so far:

  • Alberta: The Alberta Bulls
  • Anchorage
  • British Columbia
  • Calgary: The Calgary Cowboys
  • Edmonton: The Edmonton Oil Barons*
  • London:
  • Halifax: The Halifax Dreadhawks***
  • Manitoba: The Manitoba Lakers (‘cause…there’s a lot of lakes in Manitoba?)
  • Montreal
  • New Brunswick
  • Newfoundland
  • Nova Scotia
  • Nunavut
  • Ontario
  • Ottawa
  • Prince Edward Island: The Prince Edward Islanders (I AM A GENIUS)
  • Quebec
  • Quebec City
  • Regina: The Regina Giants (‘cause it sounds cool)
  • Saint John
  • Saskatchewan
  • Saskatoon
  • Thunder Bay: The Thunder Bay Lightning
  • Toronto
  • Vancouver:
  • Victoria: The Victoria Royals
  • Windsor:
  • Winnipeg
  • Yellowknife: The Yellowknife Blizzards
  • Yukon: The Yukon Gold****

YES, a lot of them overlap with other sports. COWBOYS ARE NOT A UNIQUE GEOGRAPHICAL FEATURE TO DALLAS, OKAY?

*freaking ksdfjsjflsjfsjf the “Oil Barons” are name of a Junior Hockey Team from Fort McMurry. Gonna keep it anyway. And yes, I know, the Edmonton Oilers are a thing. Gonna keep it anyway. What the hell else is there unique about Edmonton, come on, give me a break.**

**Haha, I could call them “The Edmonton Mall Rats” instead, there ya go.

***Blame Picnicface. They’re Canadian, though, so it’s like a tribute.


‘Sall I got right now. Do you have any ideas/suggestions for the others?

Preliminary Baseball Stuff

Hey turd buckets.

So as I’ve mentioned on here, I want to use Out of the Park to simulate a Canadian version of MLB alongside next year’s actual baseball season. This means that I’m going to basically replace all 30 actual teams with 30 fake Canadian teams (and just have the current players randomly (maybe) assigned to the fake teams).

One of the most exciting parts of this to me is coming up with the names of the teams themselves. I also want to do logos and stuff because I’m weird, but names first.

So there are 30 teams in real MLB, 29 of which are in the US. So I’m probably just going to flip that: have 29 teams in Canada and then one team be from Alaska or something.

So here’s my current list of Canadian team cities/provinces (and the Alaska one):

  • Alberta
  • Anchorage
  • British Columbia
  • Calgary
  • Edmonton
  • London
  • Halifax
  • Manitoba
  • Montreal
  • New Brunswick
  • Newfoundland
  • Northwest Territories (Yellowknife)
  • Nova Scotia
  • Nunavut (Iqaluit)
  • Ontario
  • Ottawa
  • Prince Edward Island
  • Quebec
  • Quebec City
  • Regina
  • Saint John
  • Saskatchewan
  • Saskatoon
  • Thunder Bay
  • Toronto
  • Vancouver
  • Victoria
  • Windsor
  • Winnipeg
  • Yukon (Whitehorse)

I figure each province/territory can have its own team in addition to one or more cities in the province/territory having a team—except for maybe the territory’s teams might just be in their capitals, so I could change those (hence the parentheses).

Now for names! My problem is that I really like alliterative names, which actually aren’t a thing in baseball much. So I’ll try to avoid that.

Right now all I have are the Thunder Bay Lightning and the Victoria Royals. Part of me wants to also avoid duplicating any current baseball names (which would mean that Victoria Royals would have to get scratched), but I also like the name “Victoria Royals,” so…

Any thoughts?

Edit: what the hell do I do with the Blue Jays?
