In honor of the release of MLB The Show 17, District on Deck will simulate an entire regular season and postseason for the Washington Nationals.
With the regular season just days away, everyone will be making their predictions on how the Washington Nationals will do in 2017. Of course, one way you can play out the season is with the release of one of the top baseball video games on the market.
The newest iteration called MLB The Show 17 comes from the fantastic developer SIE San Diego Studio. The yearly series that’s exclusive to Sony has already been released for the PS4.
The game is a great way for people to choose their favorite team and enjoy America’s pastime. The Show presents baseball in a superb way while making new enhancements each year. Some of the new features include Retro Mode, an improved Diamond Dynasty, more expansive Road To The Show and a deeper Franchise Mode.
The feature which stands out is Retro Mode. This mode travels players back to the 90s with one button utilized to throw pitches and swing the bat.
It also has custom audio, commentary from Ken Griffey and visuals that make you feel like you’ve stepped into a local arcade.
In honor of the game’s release, District on Deck will simulate an entire regular season and postseason for the Washington Nationals.
We’ll let you know what stood out over the course of a long season, such as who was the Nationals best pitcher, hitter, reliever and if there was anything which stood out.
How We Simulated Our MLB 2017 Predictions
I used Franchise Mode in MLB The Show 17 with current rosters. I went through a simulated Spring Training and proceeded to the regular season.
The regular season was simulated with gameplay options set to “Auto” to ensure it was fair for all teams.
I did find it interesting that I received some trade proposals throughout the simulation and the results at the end of the season were surprising.
With that, let’s get to the predictions for the Washington Nationals 2017 season, thanks again to MLB The Show 17 for the simulation.
