This is the first simulation I did. Game knows what it's doing..
You've got a diamond, You've got nine men
You've got a hat and a bat, And that's not all..

Can anybody explain to me how these things work? Simulations I mean. Is it, for the most part, random chance? Or is it all based on probability models etc?

Depending on how accurate the sim thing is, it is a combination of random chance base on stats. For example, a player who hit 5 homeruns can still hit a homer on the sim, but a guy with 50 would be more likely to. I don't know about the computer code aspect of it though.

Not sure how WhatIf does theirs, but most simulations work off of formulas similar to Bill James' log5 formula.
