Well, I did actually write the playoff odds and ratings part, which is why they're buggy.

Hope you don't mind me asking this here, but...on the Playoff odds calculator, sometimes a second-place team will have a "max number of wins" that surpasses the "min number of wins" of the first-place team, yet the playoff odds of the first-place team will still be 100%. If there are some scenarios in which the second-place team ends up with more wins than the first-place team, wouldn't that cause the second-place team to warrant at least some small percentage chance of winning the division?

I am totally not familiar with the utility, the playoff odds calculator or anything of the like. Nevertheless, after reading what you wrote, I have to wonder about one thing. If it's truly **playoff** odds, and not "odds of winning the division", then what you describe can still happen and be valid. That is, first place team has clinched a wildcard spot, but not the division.

That's true, but the report has a column for both plus the total chance.

Here's a sample:

Going back to this:

You can have a first place team with a lower MinW than the MaxW for the second place team, and still have that first place team winning 100% of the time if the MinW of the second place team is lower than the MinW of the first place team. As long as the simulated season in which the first place team saw their MinW also saw the second place team with a lower win total. The second place team's MaxW may have come in a year when the first place team won more games. For example, in my sample report linked to above, I simulate out the remainder of 1000 seasons. The MinW is just the lowest number of wins that team had in any of those 1000 seasons, and doesn't necessarily reflect that the MinW came in the same season as another team's MaxW which is higher. I hope that's making some sense.
