Welcome to the make believe 2023 Minnesota Twins. Game 1.




Twins Video


I have always been a big fan of simulations. I thought simulating each Minnesota Twins game this season and comparing it to the real world would be fun. OOTP baseball is a baseball simulation that will work perfectly for this exercise that literally has no point except to entertain me for the next six months or so. I may be unable to write something and post daily so I may only do this after each series.

You can read more about OOTP baseball here.


The game setup is that Rocco Baldelli makes the following decisions:



Simulated Game 1 -- Twins 6 Royals 1. Twins Record 1-0

Twins Hope Opening Day Win Bodes Well for Season
Fans brought energy and enthusiasm to the Kansas City Royals home opener. Brady Singer started for the home team against Joe Ryan for the Minnesota Twins. The Royals were unable to reward the home crowd with a win. The final score was 6-1, Minnesota. Joe Ryan, though, was impressive. Ryan, now 1-0, was the winner. In 6.1 innings, he gave up 3 hits, while striking out 5, walking 1, and allowing 1 run.

Kyle Farmer, the 32-year old third baseman , had a direct impact on the outcome. Farmer contributed a 2-run home run in the top of the second inning to put Minnesota up, 2-0.

"We believe in ourselves and we're willing to work hard. It's a good combination," Farmer told the Minnesota Bulletin

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Minnesota Twins (1-0) 0 3 0 0 0 1 2 0 0 6 11 1
Kansas City Royals (0-1) 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 5 0

Simulated Buxton had a pretty good game. He might be good.

Joe Ryan had a real nice start giving up 3 hits with 5ks.

Gallo with more hits than strikeouts in your sim.  Credibility gone.


One game but noted. Wait until you see game two though!
