Late last year, Strat-O-Matic announced that we will be producing two distinct card sets
for the 2020 MLB season - a Traditional
set based on the actual results of the 2020 60-game season, and an Imagined
set based on a combination of the actual results and projections, as our simulation of what a full 162-game season would have looked like. Both sets will be available for play in Strat-O-Matic Baseball 365!
Beginning with these 2020 sets, we will finally be eliminating the 4-day starter asterisk
for modern single-season sets going forward. This rule was initally created to make today's pitchers compatible with older eras of baseball, and it does not make sense for self-contained modern seasons. All starters will need at least 4 days of rest between starts. The playoff schedule will be updated to include more rest days as a result of this change.
