    The Race for the 2020 Playoffs
    (As of August 21st, 2020)
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    First, let us take a look at the divisional standings and races.

    [​IMG]

    Arizona barring any major collapse should wrap up the NL West fairly quickly in September while the other two divisions battle it out until the end. As close as the others are and as far away the San Francisco Giants are from the NL West crown, they currently lead the WC. So let us look at the wildcard race:

    [​IMG]
    The 2020 Wildcard will come down to four teams: Miami, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Washington. While I leave out the Mets and Brewers because of the sub .500 records for this edition. Washington and Miami are battling it out for the East, who ever succumbs will have to fend off either Pittsburgh or San Francisco to punch their ticket to the playoffs.

    Nice work.


    I predict the Crew will push to make an interesting race but ultimately fall short in heart breaking fashion.

    Last sim was rough for the Giants with series against Cincy, Miami, Houston, and Minnesota. It resulted in a 3-6 record. Now there are some big games coming up against Houston, Colorado, Tampa Bay, and san Diego.

    May as well add Cincinnati to the chase. Looks like they are in my rear view mirror. I still have at least 6 games remaining with them. Let's go bucs!

    I tried to tank my way out and of course have my best sim of the year at 7-2. Sitting 8 games back is still too much barring a few epic collapses.

    Last place in NL East is not deserving of the playoffs :p

    Someone needs to update reports. I will have zero time to do statslab anytime soon.

    I'll do the reports this morning. Shaun Mason didn't you say you could run Statslab as well? If not, I can run it if I get the info.

    Yeah I mean I can probably do it after tonight's sim, since its not a live one and the file will be up by 9 at the latest. Just shit happens when you get into 24 hour sims and its tough to find time to update stuff when you have to work the next morning.

    You need to include losing to me in your definition of tanking. So stop beating me. :stop:

    The Race for the 2020 Playoffs

    Divisional Standings

    [​IMG]

    Arizona is close to closing out the NL West, the Nationals widened their East lead from .5 game to 3 and the surprise, I guess you could say, is the Pirates over taking the Central.

    [​IMG]
    This is what we wrote earlier:

    "The 2020 Wildcard will come down to four teams: Miami, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Washington. While I leave out the Mets and Brewers because of the sub .500 records for this edition. Washington and Miami are battling it out for the East, who ever succumbs will have to fend off either Pittsburgh or San Francisco to punch their ticket to the playoffs."

    It looks like we should add Cincinnati to the list. I think it is almost certain that the Giants will end up in the playoffs so the second place teams in the East and Central will battle for the last spot.

    Unless someone can update it, I won't be able to get to it until after work in about 2 hours.
