At 3-2, the tigers have a 15% chance at making the expanded playoffs according the fangraphs.

What are their chances of making the expanded playoffs in OOTP?

I don’t know. It would be interesting if OOTP offered a modified 60 game season complete with COVID IL and all that.

New feature for OOTP22.  Pandemic shortened seasons.

Is FanGraphs basing their simulations on past seasons?  Or are they attempting to factor in the additional randomness of all the COVID IL's?

Right. You either make the playoffs, or you don't. What a silly question...  For another silly question, will we hear "Yeah, Boyd!" after every strikeout even without fans in the stands?

This is a 4 game series, a win today only guarantees a split. Foot on the gas, friends.  Posting too.

See, you're reading my mind.  Although, its more of a coloring book than a novel, so.....

Alex Wilson wants to be a player agent.

In spite of the fact that I think this whole season is doomed and I’m waiting for the Titanic to hit the iceberg, my interest level has jumped considerably which shows how little sway logic has over my emotions.

I want 4 deep bruises on Merrifield at the end of this game.

Why wait?  Plunk him at bat, and then plunk him again when he takes his lead off of first.

If I isolate myself all day then tune in to Dan and Jim I can almost trick myself into thinking the world is sort of normal.

I just hope he gets explosive diarrhea and is replaced in the lineup.
