Season 3

CARLTON THROWS AGELESS NO HITTER



Steve Carlton at 38 years of age can claim to be ageless in baseball terms as the hard throwing right hander had a day to remember at Shibe Park. Carlton was poised in a tight pitchers duel where the score remained scoreless heading into the 10th inning. The remarkable part, was the the lefty had not allowed at hit.

The 1983 Phillies scored six times in the top of the extra frame and there was no doubt that Carlton would finish the deal. He walked only one man and faced the near minimum of 31 hitters in his 10 inning masterpiece. Carlton struck out 8 and walked only one, so close to a perfect game.

Sarge Gary Matthews made a memorable catch in left field to preserve the great game. That proved just how unique the effort was.

"I told them get me one" said the hero, "they got me six instead."

I really enjoyed looking at your results.

Where did you get your player ratings?

How did you handle the different eras (not ERA)... how did you equalize Dead Ball teams with the teams of other eras?

Well it isnt an easy process and I am still taking advise to find the most even way of doing it. I have tried this two times before and it seems to be working better for me now.

I chose 1986 as my default season settings. It seems to work well as dead ball teams, like the 1915 White Sox, can take advantage of speed while the traditional powers can still win games with power. For example the White Sox stole over 500 bases in my second season and finished in the top four.

I also have neutralized stats for all players. I am looking for some randomness in what happens in a season. Player ratings other then that have not been altered. I am also keeping injuries on very low as I have seen that losing a frequent amount of star players reaks havoc on a season.

I have also implemented four man rotations for all teams. This assures that the best pitchers from days of old can still get close to 300 innings.

So far I am happy with everything and am enjoying it.

Thanks a million for following and Im glad you are enjoying it.

Season 3
Final




Cubs and Mariners Become Rivals In Dominant Season

The third season of our project saw two dominant teams run away from the field and finish tied for the pennant. The 2001 Mariners know something about regular season wins and lead by Lou Piniella did it on a bigger stage. Freddy Garcia won 27 games while Arthur Rhodes saved 37 but it was the offense that was best in this league. Mike Cameron and Ichiro Suzuki scored almost a run a game each while the super Japanese rookie stole 96 bases. Brett Boone drove in 144 runs and made a case for league MVP when all is said and done.

The 2017 Cubs came to dislike their rivals from Seattle and their showboat ways. The Cubs and Joe Maddon kept things loose and John Lester proved to be among the elite leading with 305 strikeouts and a 2.19 ERA. The Cubs hit 235 home runs with four players over 30, the surprise being Ian Happ who hit 37. Jake Arrieta won 20 games and his battery mate Wilson Contreras drove in 114 runs while hitting .314, quite a season for a catcher.

Mike Schmidt was a one man wrecking machine hitting 53 home runs and driving in 155 runs. Thirty eight year old Steve Carlton won 19 games and no one will forget his no hitter that was only a walk away from being perfect. Al Holland lead the league with 40 saves and John Denny was quietly good with 18 wins. The Phillies really did it without Pete Rose and Joe Morgan, the likes of Von Hayes and Gray Matthews playing well. An impressive third place finish for this club.

George Brett did his best to outshine Schmidt at third base. Brett was absolutely rampid in the second half of the season and flirted with .400. Brett ended with 237 hits and a .392 clip. Clint Hurdle drove in over 100 runs and Willie Wilson hit .326 from the top. Larry Gura won 25 games for Jim Frey and a 17 win September held off the opposition for a top four finish for the Royals.

Pitching was the wound that the 1975 Red Sox couldn't get free of. Carlton Fisk had a hard time getting the most of anyone on the mound with a team ERA around 5. Fisk did hit .340 while Fred Lynn 32 home runs with 116 RBI. Jim Rice and Darrell Evans only combined for 24 home runs, not enough to offset bad pitching. No miracles for this Red Sox team as they win only 73 wins.

The 1950 Phillies known as the Wiz Kids didnt finish with a passing grade. Robin Roberts and Curt Simmons were good but the pen was the worse in the league and leads evaporated in late innings. The offense scared no one as no player drove in 100 runs or hit over 30 home runs. Del Ennis and Riche Ashburn had their moments but 51 losses away from home shows their failure to adapt.

No called shot for the 1932 Cubs but they ran out of gas by the end of the campaign. Losing ace Lou Warneke in August who was having a great season (1.89 ERA) really took the pitching staff off its rails and a weak finish followed. Pat Malone was the only pitcher to throw over 200 innings showing you how many arms the Cubs used to try and stay in it. Billy Herman proved to be a fine leadoff man but Gabby Hartnett hit only .246 in the middle of the order and the Cubs lacked any run producer playing small ball against better teams just didnt work.

The biggest fail for sure was the performance of the 1987 Twins who were once world champions. The Twins lost 115 games and looked anything but a team that knows how to win or even compete. Bert Blyleven had a season for the ages losing 27 games and walking 130 men; he also surrendered 38 home runs. Tom Brunansky and Kent Hrbeck hit about a combined 60 home runs but the team average was only .221. To make things worse, the Twins only won 25 games at the Metrodome which was close to empty by the end of the season. A pathetic effort by the Twins.

No offense to Twins fans, but seeing that '87 team go down in huge flames warmed my heart.

When they beat the '87 Redbirds in the World Series, it was a nail in the coffin of the White Rat Cardinals, and baseball was lesser because of it.
