I got a perfect Max Scherzer card in one of my Perfect Team card packs.
Sorry, Scherzer is my favorite pitcher.
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!
So LET’S LOOK AT THE RESULTS!
[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!]
The (fake) baseball season (and the real one too, I guess) officially ended today! Here are the final standings going into the playoffs:
Here are the batting/pitching leaders:
The Canadian League leaders have been determined! Still waiting on a few in the National League, though.
All the simulation pitchers are getting hurt, so it’s probably a good thing the season is almost over.
TEAMS ARE GETTING ELIMINATED FROM CONTENTION
HEARTS ARE BEING BROKEN AS WE SPEAK
Also, Simulation Jose Reyes got his 2,000th hit.
We’re starting to see some teams eliminated from contention! It’s sad. Poor Vancouver. Hamilton’s killing it, though.
OH GOD FAKEBALL
That is all.
We’re getting down to the end of the season!
There have been like seven squabbles this past week, haha. Lots of suspensions. But Simulation Robinson Cano got his 300th hit, so that’s neato.
More fakin’ with the baseball type stuff. WOO!
Now we’re starting to see a little more separation.
Also, Simulation Cespedes is hurt again. KEEP HIM OFF THE RANCH
Simulation Cespedes’ foot is broken, which is the pinnacle of this game being a fantastically realistic simulation of actual baseball action. Simulation Nimmo got Rookie of the Month for July, though, so that’s cool!
The Gold and the Blues are having a rough time of things. Too cold and too rainy, respectively, I guess.
They’re all still relatively close, given how deep we are into the season. It’s probably because the talent is so equally spread out, as opposed to the freaking Yankees having everyone.
So I bought Out of the Park 20 because it was on sale and now I’m screwed because now I’m addicted to the baseball card game that’s built into that version and oh god I’m going to have to alternate between OOTP 18 for my Canadian simulation and OOTP 20 for cards and life is all baseball all the time and oh god
Things are starting to separate a liiiiiittle bit more.
Simulation Scherzer is out for the season with a torn flexor tendon in his elbow and I am Simulation Sad.
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.
I had seven consecutive sub-14-minute miles on my walk today.
I AM MADE OF SPEED
Here is baseball.
Hahaha, what the hell, Victoria?
And Simulation Cespedes is hurt. Because of course he is.
Vroom! Calgary’s still holding on.
More fake ballin’, yo.
The NL West has a tight race right now. Poor Expos, though, haha.
We’re ten weeks into the (fake) season! Here’s what’s what:
Simulation Adrian Gonzalez got his 2,000th hit, so that’s kinda cool.
Simulation Matz is hurt, though, so that’s not cool at all. ALL THE SIMULATED METS PLAYERS ARE HURT WHAT THE FREAKING CRAPPLES
FAKEBALL IS HERE ON SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAYS!!!!
(Sorry, I’m hyper)
Here’s the standings after nine weeks:
It’s going to be interesting to see if there’s less separation between the team performances than there was in real life in 2017 due to the fact that the super talented players are more spread out across all the teams instead of with the teams with the most money. We’ll see!
Here are the standings at week 8. Simulation Cespedes is hurt and Simulation Chase Utley hit for the cycle, so y’know, that’s great.
Here are the standings at week 7! We’re starting to see a little bit of separation now.
Poor Yukon and Yellowknife. It’s too cold up there for baseball, haha.
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.
Here are the updated current standings for week 5! Simulation Syndegaard is still hurt. Simulation Zack Wheeler is also out for the season with a ruptured ulnar collateral ligament, which sounds pretty gnarly (and sucks ‘cause his ERA was 1.70 so far).
I suspect the reason that Vancouver is doing so badly is because they’re all freaking sad that they have to play in Vancouver.
