League game simulations will resume today, according to the Bull League Commissioner. The simulation schedule had been on hold during the commissioner’s annual leave, which concluded yesterday.
As of this date, there are three days left to play in the 2016 Regular Season schedule: September 2, 3 and 4. There will also be a make-up game scheduled on Sept. 5 for Boston vs. Montreal, which had been postponed from an earlier rain out. All of the simulations for these games will be completed by tomorrow.
The 2016 Bull League playoffs begin Sept. 6. Simulations for these games will begin on Saturday, September 10.
The following Lake League teams have clinched playoff positions: Montreal Metros, New York Minutemen (wildcard), and the Boston Brawlers (wildcard), all of the LL East. The final position is the LL West division leader, with the Ohio Oxen leading two teams tied for second place by three games, and are heavily favored to clinch.
The Eagle League is wide open still, with only the Denver Highlanders in the AEL East having clinched a playoff position. The Jacksonville Ravens are close behind and could challenge them for the division title. San Diego Seagulls are favored to win the AEL West title, but are being challenged by the Seattle Salts.
