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 using the online version of Statis Pro.

For those of you that follow Mike Wilner on Twitter, you’ve probably noticed the simulated season he’s been doing. What he’s been up to lately is very similar to what I’m 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.

The Jays are in Baltimore for the second time this season.

How Statis Pro Works

Just like a real ball game, you set your lineup by choosing 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 centrefield 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 2nd, Alberto hit a double and ended up scoring on a Davis single. Hays started off the 5th with a home run. The Jays had a huge 9th inning as they had two sets of players go yard back-to-back with Bichette and Gurriel Jr being the first set and Hernandez and McGuire being the second set. McGuire only appeared in the game as in the 9th, Jansen was ejected for using an illegal bat and will be suspended for 7 games. In the bottom of the 9th, the Orioles were able to load the bases up with none out but when Giles came in to take over for Font, he shut the Orioles down by striking out the 3 batters he faced.

Final score: Blue Jays 6 Orioles 2

Game 60

***With Jansen being suspended for the next 7 games, it left the Jays with only one catcher. With a suspension, you can’t replace the player on the roster so Caleb Joseph was called up and Trent Thornton was sent down. The Jays will go with a 4 man rotation for the time being***
