2020 “REGULAR SEASON" THREAD

Recommended Posts


Raise your hand if you saw Buck Farmer leading the team in strikeouts six games in.

Now lower your hand, because you're lying.

Can you just go ahead and sim 20 seasons out to settle once and for all whether they should draft Torkelson or Martin?  I'm toying with the idea myself, but I'm lazy.

I'm going to let the game just handle the draft and see who they end up taking. Honestly, that's a future consideration and I'm interested in doing only this season.

Neither does Mize or Manning being up right now in normal times, since they are not even on the 40-man. I guess B-R figures, why not be a little fanciful for fun's sake? And if the idea is just do some fun things to serve an alternate reality that would never happen normally anyway, then the sky's the limit, so why the h*** not?

I'm playing it straight with mine: "would this happen if the season were going as normal?" That's why I don't have MIze or Manning up, at least not in early April.

It's a computer simulation.  When you put the numbers in the computer, Mize is better than some of the pitchers on the ML roster, so therefore the computer puts him on the ML roster.  Even though that wouldn't happen in real life.  

Martin doesn't make any sense because they should have factored in the Tigers' budget.

This is a good idea to also see when the Tigers are expected to compete again.  What year are they supposed to have a winning record again?  2022? 2025?  2050?

That didn’t happen when I did a few dry runs of the season before committing to doing this run-through. Mike and Manning didn’t show up on the roster in any of those dry runs.

OK, so I did sim out ten seasons. They took Martin #1 in 2020.

Beyond that, I'll just say that, assuming OOTP is an oracle, if you can hold out until 2028, they'll give you reason to live. There will be a bit of tough sledding before that though.

Also, OOTP says, learn about this guy:

We are the world.

Michael Jackson said so.

And I think Ernie said it to Bert. Maybe it was Kermit.

How are the Tigers 5-2?  Chas has it rigged.  

I don’t know if you read Baseball Prospectus, but they simmed the season 100,000 times, and in one of those sims, the Tigers—this Tigers—finished 93-69.

So ... there.

They aren't as bad as you think.

I think team BABIP might be way over .400. In a strictly “it’s results that matter” world, that’s pretty good. I wouldn’t go to Vegas on them, though.

Are you guys unhappy with their start? Would you be more interested in following them if they were 0-7?

Justin Verlander called his old Tiger buddies and told them the Astros' secrets.

Nonsense.  This is the closest thing we have to complain about the real Tigers.  Thank you for filling the void for us.

If you simmed the MTS team 100,000 times...
