How is your favorite MLB team doing this season?

Answer: There’s a sports game simulator that will tell you.

by / April 1, 2020

Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the professional baseball season that was supposed to be starting right now has been postponed. But Strat-O-Matic, a popular game simulator for sports, is giving Major League Baseball fans a taste of the season that they're missing.

Every day, the company is uploading the projected outcomes of the MLB games that would have been played that day. To get these results, they “combine statistical realism with life-like strategy decisions” to figure out what was the most likely outcome. They also keep track of overall stats and standings for the teams and individual players based on each simulated game, so you know where your team stands overall.

The results are updated every day at 2 p.m. Eastern Time (11 a.m. Pacific Time). They can be viewed here.
