Morning Mathematical Monsters & Maniacs!

Hi, I’m Super Safi and you may remember me from such stats and strategy posts as Kwik-E-Mart Farming and the advanced losing-to-win Superheroes battle strategy.

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing mathematical journey involving fractions, probability, Fermat’s last theorem, and hundreds of other aspects from the wonderful world off mathematics.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing math Monday morning?

With baseball season officially underway, this month we’re going to explore one of my favourite branches of math – sabermetrics. After all, as Prof Frink so aptly said, “baseball is a game played by the dexterous, but only understood by the poin-dextrous.”

Update ON THE SERVER!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Red alert!  RED ALERT!  This is not a drill.  I repeat this is not a drill.  We have an update on our hands!  All praise TSTO not being dead! 🙌🙌

At first glance, I can tell you this appears to be (another) 2-week mini-event (which means this is an in-game update, so nothing to update in the app store.  It should download automatically for you).  It’s slated to start TOMORROW, April 10th, at 10am ET (1400 UTC).  Again, it’s supposed to start tomorrow.  So it’ll download today but nothing will trigger until tomorrow morning.

At second glance I can tell you…holy mother-forking shirtballs this update is called…MARGE AT THE BAT!

For those who have read this site for awhile, watched Addicts Live, or just know me at all, you know Homer at the Bat is my FAVORITE episode.  I’m excited to see what’s in store here….

Update: Ok guys a heads up…I’m not 100% sure of this or not..but the Yearbook box MAY be leaving the store.  So be prepared if it does.

Also, at first glance, this looks like nothing. I’m hoping EA only released a small portion of the files today.  Because right now this is nothing.  No new characters, decorations, buildings, or costumes.  Just a bunch of stuff coming back.  So color me confused….

Update #2: What I see right now is an 8 part questline, ZERO new content.  Loads of returning content.  And the chance for players to get characters and skins for free if they missed them during Tap Ball or Springfield Jobs (Aristotle only). Other than that I’m not seeing much guys…so I’m very perplexed at the move here.
