For anyone wondering if the simulation engine is up to par in MLB 15: The Show, here are the results of one simulated season and how the engine fared. Also, I simmed two other seasons (not in the video) which all ended up with strikingly different results. In one, the Astros and Brewers actually met in the World Series, with the Astros having the best record in all of baseball! In another, it was a battle of perennial contenders, with the Giants and Tigers facing off in the World Series.
In this particular sim, you can see the Red Sox and Nationals give it a go. The stat I Found most interesting is there wasn't a single 20 game winner in the pitchers, the last time that happened in the majors was 2009 with four players total at 19 wins.
Be sure to look through the league leaders and see if anything stands out to you as being unnatural -- also give the sample 'end of season' Radio Show a listen!
