With the season on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m doing a game by game simulation based on the Blue Jays schedule, and using the online version of Statis Pro.

For those of you that follow Mike Wilner on Twitter, it’s very similar to what he’s doing, just that we’re using different games to do it. I have also made an account for the simulations on Instagram that can be followed @jays.simgames.

After a series sweep of the Yankees on the road, the Jays have another interleague matchup on the road as they play the Phillies.

How Statis Pro works

Just like a real ball game, you set your lineup where you choose each player’s spot in the batting order and everything else that comes with managing a ball game. Basically you are the manager.

To play, you have cards that you go through that have a bunch of information on them. Each pitcher has a PB number with the lowest number starting at 2, and the highest number going at 9. For example, Hyun-Jin Ryu has a PB of 2-9 so if you flip a card with a PB of 7, you go based off the stats on his card. If you flip a card and get a PB of 11, you go based on the stats of the batter’s card.

After you flip the first card, you have to flip another card to determine the random number. Let’s say you get the first card of a PB 7 with Ryu pitching and the random number is 38. Ryu’s card may have a strikeout from the numbers 22-46, meaning if you get a PB 7 and a random number of 38, Ryu struck out whoever he faced.

Let’s say Ryu is pitching and he’s facing J.D. Martinez of the Red Sox. You flip the first card and get a PB of 10 and you flip the next card and get a random number of 26. Martinez’s card may have a double to centre field as 24-26, meaning if you get a PB of 10 and a random number of 26, Martinez got a double off Ryu.

Game recap 

In the bottom of the 1st, the Phillies had the bases loaded with an out but Realmuto grounded out to Vladdy who threw home for the forceout. In the 5th, the Jays got 4 hits and scored 2 runs as a result. The next inning, Grichuk went deep which was followed by a Gurriel Jr home run the inning after.

Jays pitchers combined to go 2 for 3 with a SAC bunt with bunt base hits coming from Gaviglio and Moran. Both Phillies runs came off homers as Realmuto went yard to start the bottom of the 7th and Segura went deep in the 8th.
