Did you hear? There WILL be an Opening Day and a baseball season played according to the schedule that was created and distributed by Major League Baseball last year.
According to Strat-o-Matic.com:
While the baseball season, along with the rest of the sports world, is on hold, Strat-O-Matic (www.strat-o-matic.com), the market leader in sports simulations, will help fans keep rooting for their favorite players and teams until they get back onto big league fields by playing out the 2020 campaign daily. It all starts with the slate of 15 Opening Day games as originally scheduled on Thursday, March 26.
Using its innovative Baseball Daily product powered by its unmatched realism in calculating player ratings, Strat-O-Matic will allow fans, media and former players to help select the day’s pitchers and lineups, as well as follow the action via www.strat-o-matic.com and on its various active social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
We at Redleg Nation want to know: Would you be interested in daily recaps of this simulated season? We’re not sure just how much detail will be provided for each game. However, your author has played Strat-o-Matic in the past, both the board game and online versions, and at the very least some statistics will be available. The simulations will include the players who have changed teams in the off-season on their new rosters, so it might be interesting to see how the simulated 2020 Reds do against their simulated opponents.
Please let us know in the comments below if you are interested in seeing a daily recap, and also let us know if you have no interest. We’ll respond accordingly.
