We've started to joke that the Statis-Pro playoffs might be more accurate than the actual MLB playoffs LOL. What we mean by that is the new wild card format, while exciting, seems to be killing off the top teams with rust as they need to wait almost a week during their bye. Once again this season the Phillies have a shot at the actual MLB World Series after making the run despite not being one of the top 10 teams during the actual season.
All three 100-win teams were eliminated by a wild card series winner in this real season this year, just as both 100-win NL teams were eliminated last year.
Our Statis-Pro season using the 2023 projected cards has been stalled for a month due to an insane work schedule and prior to that a breakthrough in a all-time college basketball game. We were going to play one or two more series for each team, but now that we are nearing the end of October we cut off the regular season and will go to the playoffs.
The two teams in the real playoffs that did not make our Statis-Pro playoffs include the Diamondbacks, whose pitching in the game was just much worse than real life, so despite a great offense they missed the playoffs by 1 game after making the real playoffs by 1 game. the other team that did not make our playoffs are the Marlins, who actually tied for the last playoff spot in real life, but in our game finished tied for the last spot but lost the tiebreaker due to being swept by the Phillies.
Therefore the Phillies will visit Milwaukee for a best of three, with the winner playing the Atlanta Braves.
The two surprise teams will face off with the Cubs visiting the Giants and the winner getting the Los Angeles Dodgers, who nudged the Braves by one game to take the regular season crown.
