With Spring Training winding down and the regular season right around the corner, the folks over at MLB The Show have simulated the entire season and come up with some predictions for 2023. While some results from the popular video game simulation will have Blue Jays fans absolutely giddy, other predicted outcomes are sure to leave a sour taste.

First, the good news.

After the full simulation of 162 games, the Jays emerged as the top team in the majors with 108 wins. Yes, you read that correctly, 108 wins. With only 54 losses, they managed a phenomenal .667 winning percentage.

The Jays dominated the AL East in the MLB The Show simulation, finishing 10 games ahead of the second-place Red Sox. The Yankees finished a distant third (which is incredible to see but highly unlikely to actually happen) with the Orioles and Rays in the basement.

Kevin Gausman led the Jays with a league-leading 20 wins as they carved up the rest of the majors. He didn't take home the AL Cy Young, however, as a healthy Jacob deGrom won the award with 244 strikeouts for the Rangers.

By dominating the regular season, the virtual Blue Jays avoided the Wild Card round and got to sit at home while the Red Sox hosted the Rangers at Fenway. Boston swept Texas 2-0 to set up an AL Division Series matchup with the Jays.

It took five games, but the Jays took care of business, using their home-field advantage to beat out the Red Sox 3-2.

Now, the bad news.

The Jays again had home field for their ALCS showdown against the Houston Astros. Unfortunately, this is where the dream season came to an end. The experienced Astros made quick work of Toronto, taking the best-of-seven series 4-1 before losing to the Atlanta Braves in the World Series.

So, despite MLB The Show predicting the 2023 Blue Jays to be the juggernaut of the league and have a season that every fan would love to see, it was all just a tease, with a healthy dose of simulated postseason heartbreak.
