You read the headline correctly I did it, just me. That may not be entirely true with the help of algorithms and such I lead them to it. 

Video games are fun, but to a baseball fan, MLB The Show 18 is incredible. That’s exactly how I did it with the Colorado Rockies. This game has a mode called franchise mode that allows you to be the GM of a team (sorry Jeff Bridich). It’s the most realistic simulation that’s out there and even uses AI in order to produce most of the out comes. If you’d like a more in-depth and detailed overview of Franchise Mode feel free to watch this video below. 

April

We dove straight into regular season play, note this is the exact schedule that the Colorado Rockies are actually playing. So let’s just dive into it. The month of April starts off as cliche as possible with the NL West, but it did have a twist.

The Los Angeles Dodgers did take 1st for the month, but the San Francisco was behind in 2nd while the Colorado Rockies were tied with them. The Rockies in actuality played about the same as they did starting in April finishing the month with a 16-11 record.
