For some baseball fans, like myself, this time of year is a sad, sometimes bleak time. My Redbirds lost in spectacular fashion to the Giants, and I’ve found it hard to get ready for the World Series. I do have a podcast to do on baseball tonight, so I’ll need to shake it off soon. For those of us that are looking for a baseball fix to ease the pain of our teams not playing, OOTP baseball is offering up their current edition at half off. I really enjoyed my time with ‘Out of the Park Baseball,’ and hope to get up a review soon. It will need to be in the ‘Delayed Reaction’ reviews I’ll be starting. Anyway, enough blabbing. Here’s more information on the game and sale, and look for Brad Cook from OOTP baseball to appear on an upcoming episode of SOBS-songwriters on baseball soon.

OOTP 15’s World Series Pick: Royals
This World Series pits a pair of closely-matched teams, as OOTP 15 showed when the series between the Giants and Royals was simmed five times. A post on the company’s new blog digs into the compiled stats and shows this could be too close to call, but with three wins in five sims, OOTP Developments predicts the Royals will be this year’s champion.
