The Sim Likes Rays in Game 1, But Long Ball Good Spell Difference

Our Diamond Mind simulation is beginning to get some pub.  In addition to The Sim's article on ESPN.com projecting the NLCS and the ALCS, The Sim has gotten some props for its prescient prognostications on the Hardball Times website and a mention on Boston.com, the website of the Boston Globe…

Where Does The Sim Stay on the Road? Holiday Inn Express, Of Course

The Diamond Mind simulation is feeling like it stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night (hey, some product placement!).  It rated game one of the Dodgers-Phillies as practically a toss-up, giving the Dodgers a very slim odds of 50.9%.  More importantly, however, was that The Sim projected that the…

Tampa Owns Edge Over Boston, But Game 1 Critical

Last week, we ran our Diamond Mind simulation on behalf of ESPN and predicted that the Tampa Bay Rays would easily defeat the Chicago White Sox, most likely in three or four games, and that the Los Angeles Angels would upend the defending World Champion Boston Red Sox … though…

Mr. Sim Says Dodgers, Phillies Pens Will Likely Decide NLCS Game 1

Our Diamond Mind simulation is feeling its oats after correctly nailing the dynamics of just about every game of the first round of the playoffs.  When I pointed out that the Red Sox did not fall to the Angels (or is that "fallen Angels"...?), it pointed out that it did…

Mr. Sim Says Dodgers Will Defeat Phillies in NLCS, Advance to World Series

Last week, our Diamond Mind simulation predicted that the Philadelphia Phillies would dispatch the Milwaukee Brewers, most likely in four games, and projected that the Los Angeles Dodgers would upset the team with the NL’s best record in the regular season, the ill-fated Chicago Cubs.  Sure enough, both the Phillies…

Mr. Sim Calls Virtual Coin Toss for BOS-LAA Game 4 as Injured Players Could Spell The Difference

RED SOX vs. ANGELS, game 4: The Angels survived last night (or this morning, depending your time zone!) - but just barely.  Can they do it again?  The Sim sees Boston as having the edge, but not by much.  The Red Sox project as having a 53.6% chance of winning…

Mr. Sim Sees Rays Closing It Out in Game 4; Watch Pena, Longoria

RAYS-WHITE SOX, Game 4: Our Diamond Mind simulation said that game 3 was the White Sox best chance to come up with a win, and they did.  Today, however, The Sim thinks the Rays have a good chance of closing it out.  To get even more precise, we've started running…

The Sim, Now 'Mr. Sim,' Continues Hot Streak

RED SOX vs. ANGELS, game 3: Well, The Sim did not get the winner right for this game, but it got the game dynamics right on.  And, in its defense, we did not know J.D. Drew would be scratched from the line-up when we ran the simulations and, in fact,…

The Sim Says Phillies Move On, Red Sox, Angels Put Up Some Runs, White Sox Could Win Close One

Here are predictions from The Sim heading into today's LDS games: BREWERS-PHILLIES, game 4: The Brew Crew stayed alive with a 4-1 win in game 3 before the home crowd.  Can they do it again?  The Sim doesn't think so, as the Phillies win 543 of the 1,000 sim runs,…

The Sim: Runs LDS Record to 7-1, Very Annoyed With Humans

Well, the Diamond Mind sim correctly called the Rays-Chisox game, and a strong outing from Scott Kazmir was the key, as projected.  And the Rays' bullpen made it stand.  One of the keys to the game, according to The Sim, could be wildness by the Rays' bullpen, a potential risk…

The Sim Says: 82% Sure of Phillies Sweep, Watch Feliz as Surprise Hero

PHILLIES vs. BREWERS, game 3: We just finished 1,000 runs of game 1 on our Diamond Mind simulation.   Results?  The Phillies are slight favorites to close out the series, having won 528 times out of 1,000, scoring an average of 4.7 runs compared to 4.2 for the Brewers.  Keys to…

Furcal, Kuroda Likely Keys to Dodgers Sweeping Cubs in NDLS

DODGERS-CUBS, Game 3:  The Diamond Mind sim is feeling a bit smug about this series, having predicted the Dodgers to upset the Cubs and take the series.  Can Chicago start a comeback, or are the Fated Ones about to start a comeback?  The Sim's projections for game 3 indicated toss-up…

The Sim Says Starters Solid, Pens Shakey in Game 2 of Angels-Red Sox ALDS

ALDS Game 2 - ANGELS-RED SOX: Game one of this series went just as The Sim predicted - a toss-up about as even as can be, with Boston starter Jon Lester being the key to a Red Sox victory and David Ortiz not being a factor.  Diamond Mind got that…

The Sim Says Tougher Game for Rays in ALDS, But Still Favored

RAYS-WHITE SOX, Game 2 Our Diamond Mind simulation showed the Tampa Bay Rays as heavy favorites (63.9%) to win game one (and the whole series), and the Rays did not disappoint, winning 6-4.  After doing 1,000 simulation runs of game two, the Rays are favored again, though not as heavily…

The Sim is Feeling Smug; Predicted Phillies-Dodgers NLCS Looking Good

Here's a recap of today's predictions from The Sim, Imagine Sports' simulation software, along with the real-life results from the games: RAYS-WHITE SOX, game 1:  Well, our Diamond Mind simulation picked the Rays and that the James Shields would deliver.  That he did, and so did the Rays.  The Sim…
