Simming Until Every Team Wins the World Series

How close is your favorite team's next championship? 1 year? 3? 5? 108?

Well, we're about to find out, because I am starting a new OOTP game and will not stop until all 30 teams win at least one championship. This could take 30-40 years, or several hundred, but we will sim through it all.

A couple notes:
-I am starting in the 2018 season.
-I am starting on OOTP 19. If OOTP 20 comes out before I finish, I will switch to that.
-I am unemployed, and will be remaining so throughout the simulation.
-Commissioner mode is on.
-League evolution is disabled.
-Every so often, I'll post a season's results and any big stories. I'm not going to go into detail on every little thing because it would take too long, but I will show the full standings after every year.
-I have several other OOTP games going, so I'm not sure how often I will post this. If it's been a week or two since the last post, I've probably just been busy, so bear with me.
-I put this in Fictional Simulations because it seemed more fitting than Historical Simulations or Dynasty Reports. If that was wrong, I apologize.

As of right now, the 5 longest World Series droughts are:
1. Cleveland Indians (69 years)
2. Texas Rangers (57 years)
3. Milwaukee Brewers (49 years)
4. San Diego Padres (49 years)
5. Washington Nationals (49 years)

Play ball!

I preferred OOTP when they were anti Cubs. Go White Sox!

So, obviously the Los Angeles Dodgers win again, which is a little disappointing. It would have been nice to get Tampa Bay off the board early. 2 of the 30 teams have won.

Comment what year you think your favorite team will win.

Hall of Fame: Mussina, Clemens, Bonds

Now for 2021. Regular season standings...


Batting leaders...


Pitching leaders...


And the playoffs...


So the Tampa Bay Rays return to the World Series and deny the Dodgers a 3-peat. They do have Chris Archer and Seth Beer still, but I'll let that slide. There's hope, Rays fans!

10% of the way there (3 of 30 teams)

I'm a Nationals fan...I have a feeling we'll win in 2043.

So the Houston Astros win the 2022 World Series, with a lineup anchored by Yordan Alvarez and a pitching core led by Bryce Montes de Oca and Forrest Whitley. 4 of the 30 teams have now won a World Series.

Comment how many years you think this is going to take.

HOF: Miguel Cabrera, Sabathia

Regular season standings...

Batting leaders...

Pitching leaders...

And the playoff results...


So the Braves, Diamondbacks, Indians, and Giants all get their championship, plus the Dodgers win another one. 8 of 30 teams have won in the 10 seasons we played.

Here are the updated longest active WS droughts:
1. Texas Rangers (67)
2. Milwaukee Brewers (59)
3. San Diego Padres (59)
4. Washington Nationals (59)
5. Seattle Mariners (51)

By the way, as we move further into this series and we get into purely fictional players, I may start moving away from leaders and FA signings and just focus on standings. However, if there's anything specific about the sim you want to ask me (like how a certain player did or what a team's future looks like), don't hesitate to ask.

Using some simple probability tricks, I found that the expected number of years it will take for all 30 teams to win the World Series is 119.8.

In doing the math, we assume that each year's winner is independent of the next (definitely not true) and that each franchise is equally likely to win a championship in any given year (almost certainly not true). So, if anything, I'd expect the *actual* expected value to be a good deal *larger* than 120.

So the Pittsburgh Pirates return to the World Series and sweep the Rangers, who continue their playoff woes. 9 of 30 teams have won the World Series, while only 5 (BAL, COL, MIA, MIL, SEA) have yet to make the playoffs.

If i have to wait til 2029 for the Sox to make the postseason, Rick Hahn is gonna pay. Can I do the end credit scene from Deadpool 2 on him?

2030

You'd probably be interested to know that Rick Hahn was fired by the White Sox in 2019. Brian Cashman is now running the rebuild. Anyway...

MVP: AL-Lisella NL-Jonathan Horsky (PHI)
Cy Young: AL-Dan Folkema (BOS) NL- Chris Halls (PIT)
ROY: AL-Vicente Soledade (KC) NL-Lucas D. Wimberly (SF)

FA signings: Ward-CLE Joey Bart-NYY Kevin Maitan-SF Gary Sanchez-PHI Ian Happ-BOS Jonathan Vaughns-CHC A.J.Labas-HOU

HOF: Scherzer (Sorry, Tigers fans, he went in as a National)

Now the regular season standings...

Batting leaders...

Pitching leaders...

And the playoff results...


So the Boston Red Sox deny the Pirates of a back-to-back. We are 1/3 of the way through now, as 10 different teams (CHC, LAD, TB, HOU, ATL, ARI, CLE, SF, PIT, and BOS) have won the World Series.

So the Red Sox repeat as champions.

A couple notes (mostly concerning failure):
The Mariners are now the only team that has not made the playoffs during this series.
The Mets now have 10 playoff appearances without a championship (most of any team). The Rangers have 8.
The Royals have now lost the ALCS in seven games to the Red Sox two years in a row. I am very sorry.

Can you post a screen shoot of Ronald Acuna Jr career batting stats?

His career should be winding down or already over by 2032. I saw a only a handful of batting leader appearances so I am guessing his career was solid but nothing HOF or maybe even AS worthy.

2033

Here are Acuna's stats (he retired last season). He made the All-Star team twice (in 2022 and 2027), won the Gold Glove in 2019 and 2020, won the Silver Slugger in 2022 and 2026, and won the World Series in 2023 with the Braves.


Now on to 2033.
MVP: AL-Rodolfo Puello (HOU) NL-Thiel
Cy Young: AL-Folkema NL-Mike Schulz (COL)
ROY: AL: Juan Rosado (SEA) NL- Jorge Cazares (MIL)

FA signings: Weathers-KC Devers-NYM Luke Leto-TEX Schwarz-KC Padilla-NYY Seager-LAA Juan Terraza-SF Luis Galindo-CHC

HOF: Stanton (no logo), Cano (Yankee), Votto

Now the regular season standings...


Batting leaders...


Pitching leaders...


And the playoffs...


So the Pirates win another World Series by sweeping the Twins. I knew pretty much from the get-go that this was going to be another repeat season, as 6 of the 11 previous champions made the playoffs. However, I am still disappointed. 11 out of 30 have won.
