I got everything.
Wait, wait, You know what? Yeah.
Hello, my friends.
Welcome aboard the stream.
We're back at it again tonight.
Happy Thursday evening.
What? April 9th.
I have to constantly remind myself of that each and every day.
Because it's easy for to forget. Now it is.
So let's go ahead and just start this thing off as we normally D'oh! For those of you that do not know me, my name is Jesse Clark.
I write and stream on behalf of the unwrapped sports Network.
You can go ahead and follow me on Twitter at J.
In fact, let me update this.
She just a little bit.
They kind of SportsCastr.
Messed it around a little bit.
They're switching up the logo's here for, and I'll be about that.
No playing little tricks on us already.
So before we get started, you know, just that reiterate this is a continuation of last night's stream where we are touching on what the MLB simulations are saying If the season started March 26th opening day, the way that it was supposed to You know what the computer's say? You know, how do they predict the start of the season going.
So last night we broke down the American League standings, each division at a time, and we kind of highlighted Cem players that are legal leaders in certain, you know, historic categories that we tend to flock towards, like home runs R B I, you know, average on base percentage, those types of things.
But before I continue with tonight's stream, I want to highlight, and I see him already in the chat room here you'll see in the chat room at Josh U. S.
He is a team member in AH, co director of the MLB team over at Unwrapped Sports Network, and he is going to be starting a stream here in about 10 minutes, in which he breaks down the overrated players and MLB, and he has asked me to kindly join him.
So I will be joining his stream in about 10 minutes.
You know, this is going to be a fairly short stream, so I'm going to join him, and we're gonna have a nice little debate.
So if you have some extra free time, you know, feel free to jump on over to his stream here in about 10 minutes or so as we start the debate on overrated MLB players.
So I just wanted to highlight that little fun exercise because it's always a little more fun when you have, you know, another person that feed ideas off of, and I think this will be a fun little put a little topic to discuss.
So that being said, Let's move on to the stream and try to get through this as quickly as we possibly can.
Last night we discussed the ale.
Tonight we're going to discuss the NL.
If you are unable to watch or tune in live last night, make sure you go, you know, tune into the American League one.
Because as I've stated last night, we are going to continue this on a weekly basis.
You know, I think once a week I'm going to break down the NL one night in the A l another night and just kind of make a theme of it for, you know, roughly a month or so.
Hopefully we have some clarity within the next few weeks as toe when baseball might start really baseball instead of simulated baseball, which were relying on now, and we have a better idea.
And you know, we'll know how long this little Siri's will last.
But for the for the foreseeable future, we I will be doing this each, you know, Conference League, if you will.
American League and nationally each night, once a week.
So you know, without further ado, let's move on to the National League standings per the simulation.
And as I mentioned in last night's stream, for those of you that would like to maybe follow along here and just give me one second, I'm there really messing me up here with these graphics being on the other side of the screen.
I have to move things around here, half of my heads being chopped off.
So, huh, What was I referring to? Oh, okay.
Said the source of this.
So I am pulling this from baseball reference dot com.
So if you would like to, you know, just a quick little Google search you 2020 MLB simulated baseball or something to that effect, and I was able to pull this up, and they have been tracking this, you know, since March 26th.
And here are I apologize for the you know, small thought here, but I will, you know, kind of just so I have another screen to work with here, so I'm able to kind of pull this and go over this.
So let's start here in the NL East in the NL East, we have the and this is one of the bigger shocks of last night or tonight.
The Miami Marlins leading the decision at nine and four.
You know, this is simulated when you have the Miami Marlins Of the top of the division, we have the Miami Marlins at nine and four to start the year.
Atlanta Braves at eight and five, New York Mets five and six.
The defending World Series champion.
Washington Nationals at five and seven in Philadelphia.
Phillies at three and nine. Man.
That is not the way that I expected to NL East toe break down early on and then granted, we kind of gave some caveats last night.
This is still early.
There's not a whole lot of data to go off of here, so I'm not trying to overreact too much.
But, you know, if we were watching real baseball, that that would be the talk of and I'll be, you know, ESPN.
All the talking heads would be discussing how you know this, this hot start from the Miami Marlins.
So that is the NL East standings.
Let's move on to the NL Central.
A little disappointed by this.
As most of you know, I'm a big Cincinnati Reds fan.
So let's recap what the simulations were saying about the N L Central ST Louis Cardinals at eight and four, leading leading the division Pittsburgh Pirates, Which is a surprise.
I predicted them to finish last in the division.
I think many others did as well.
They, apparently, according to the simulations, had a hot start to the season at seven and five Cincinnati Reds, following them, six and five.
Milwaukee Brewers have a six and five record as well, and then Chicago Cubs with the six and six record rounding out the bottom of the division.
Let's move on to the NL West, the Arizona Diamondbacks leading at nine and four.
The Los Angeles Dodgers, which are my world Siris favorite, and I think Vegas is as well at eight and four.
Then you have Colorado Rockies of five and seven.
San Francisco Giants at Foreign eight and San Diego Padres at four and nine.
I am not acknowledging the chat room at this time because we have some trolls from fantasy football hometown leagues that liketo post in Bragg about, uh, the past.
You know, they're always looking in the rear view mirror instead of looking forward.
So, uh, that being said, let's continue this n l simulation talk.
Let's move on to some of the league leaders and some of the major categories here.
Last night we broke down the American League leaders in a lot of the hitting and pitching categories.
And tonight let's break down the en El leaders.
Let's see. Here we have No.
One Erin Auto leading the league with six home runs.
15 R B I A to 77 batting average, 3 27 B P.
Eight strikeouts in 12 games.
I actually don't think that that's a great start for him, and that's pretty surprising that he's towards the top of the list for NL performers.
Yeah, most of these guys thes league leaders.
Jeez, Come on and l represent here.
Let's go down here.
Four home runs with the Dodgers.
12 R B I to 65 average to 69 OBP Man, that's not great.
Stolen bases Who? Not good stats? Not good counting stats for the NL folks here.
Who's next? David Doll? Another Colorado Rocky here.
12 R B I 3 88 batting average for 12 OBP.
That's where we're out here.
We're starting to get into some good counting stats here.
I'm telling you, most of these are American League guys.
This is disappointing for that Earned US national leaders here.
We got Cincinnati Red here.
How about that? Let's highlight this.
That's something positive to look forward to.
Mike Moose Takis The new second base.
Ah, power hitter from the Milwaukee Brewers.
Looks like he starts off these two weeks with the four home runs.
Nine R B I 3 75 average for 23 OBP in 11 games played, so that's a pretty hot started.
Take that as a Reds fan any day of the week.
I love this addition to Mike New stock.
It's so if he can start the year off hot like this, that would help us especially since it looks like he might be hitting in the four hole for the at least in the beginning of the year.
Predicted lineups are Ah, let's go ahead and check out some of the pitching stats here.
No surprise there. National leader.
29 strikeouts in 20 innings pitched with a 1 80 e r a.
75 whip and that those were some good stats here also has.
Well, whoever it is, they're gonna show me wins.
Oh, yeah, there is to know in three games started so hot, start there and then Jacob deGrom right behind them.
No surprises there.
He has a 27 strikeouts and 20 innings pitched.
Ah, one a T e r a.
1 whip one in one record and then you have to go all the way back down.
All these all these names are no surprise whatsoever.
These air The top pitchers in the league Max Sures Err Defending champion Washington Nationals, 24 strikeouts and 21 innings, a 210.
So some great pitching numbers not so and that would kind of explain why there's not so many great hitting stats for the National League to go overto.
You know, one category we missed on the hitting side with stolen bases Looks like Starling marked for the Arizona.
You know that The new addition to the airs on the Diamondbacks with five steals early on.
Christian Yelich Chip four steals.
These three steals.
Oh, I missed the top performer.
Miami New, you know, new member of the Miami Marlins.
Seven stolen basis.
So, uh, those of the leaders in the hitting categories and the pitching categories and the only other pitching category that I didn't really touch on was saves just to give you guys an idea here.
Archie Bradley leads the National League with five saves already in two weeks of action.
Then we got Kenley Jansen right behind him at five wins or five wins.
Five saves would be impressive if they had five wins.
And then Jairo Diaz, Colorado, which is actually kind of surprising at four saves because, uh, I thought Wade Davis was supposed to be their projected closer.
So those of the league leaders in hitting and pitching stats for the National League simulation for the 1st 2 weeks.
It would be exactly two weeks from today that the MLB season was supposed to start.
So that being said that just about does it for, you know, these early season MLB simulations.
We did the ale last night.
As I discussed, we did the NL tonight.
I hope you guys enjoyed it.
And, ah, make sure you tune in again.
We're gonna keep doing this on a weekly basis, like I stated earlier in this broadcast.
