Canadian League Baseball: Week 10 Summary

We’re ten weeks into the (fake) season! Here’s what’s what:

06-09-2019

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

Canadian League Baseball: Week 9 Summary

FAKEBALL IS HERE ON SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAYS!!!!

(Sorry, I’m hyper)

Here’s the standings after nine weeks:

06-02-2019

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!

Canadian League Baseball: Week 7 Summary

Here are the standings at week 7! We’re starting to see a little bit of separation now.

05-19-2019

Poor Yukon and Yellowknife. It’s too cold up there for baseball, haha.

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.

05-12-2019

Canadian League Baseball: Week 5 Summary

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).

05-05-2019

I suspect the reason that Vancouver is doing so badly is because they’re all freaking sad that they have to play in Vancouver.

Canadian League Baseball: Week 4 Summary

Here are the updated current standings. No one is really pulling ahead at this point, but it’s very early in the season still.

04-28-2019

Canadian League Baseball: Week 3 Summary

Here are the updated current standings. Go Calgary! Haha.

04-21-2019

Canadian League Baseball: Week 2 Summary

Here are the updated current standings.

04-14-2019

Other news: Simulation Syndergaard has already been injured like three times (just like the real 2017?), so he’s sitting right now.

Tune in next Sunday!

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:

04-07-2019

It’s still very early!

OPENING DAY

It’s BASEBALL TIME, BITCHES!

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

CL EAST

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

CL CENTRAL

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

CL WEST

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


National League

NL EAST

  • 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

NL CENTRAL

  • Manitoba: The Manitoba Lakers
  • Ontario: The Ontario Horseshoes

  • Windsor: The Windsor Welders

NL WEST

  • 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.

I AM EXCITE

More Fake Baseball, Sorry

Alright, nerds, here is the finalized list of my fake baseball teams for my fake Canadian League Baseball simulation that I’ll start tomorrow. I tried to make most of the names relevant to the city/province/territory, but some of them are just “I couldn’t think of anything else so here’s some alliteration to make things sound good.”

Edit: I LIED, I’d forgotten to give Saint John a name. So I called them the Saints. Fight me.

  • Alberta: The Alberta Bulls
  • Anchorage: The Anchorage Timberwolves
  • British Columbia: The BC Bears
  • Calgary: The Calgary Cowboys
  • Edmonton: The Edmonton Oil Barons
  • Fredericton: The Fredericton Fighters
  • London: The London Chaps
  • Halifax: The Halifax Dreadhawks
  • Hamilton: The Hamilton Steelers
  • Manitoba: The Manitoba Lakers
  • Montreal: The Montreal Expos

  • Nova Scotia: The Nova Scotia Mariners
  • Nunavut: The Nunavut Miners
  • Ontario: The Ontario Horseshoes
  • Ottawa: The Ottawa Monarchs

Tune in tomorrow for the official intro to this project!

Canadian Baseball League: Team Update

HI THERE

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.

****YES I KNOW THAT’S A POTATO I DON’T GIVE A STARCHY DAMN

‘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?
