Lyerly's return from the DL

After missing just over a month with bone chips in his throwing elbow, Harry Lyerly was given a short rehab stint at AAA, where he pitched two starts with limited success, and then returned to the Brewers with the September 1st roster expansion. In his first game back he didn't fare too poorly, but he did allow 10 hits over 8 1/3rds innings, including 3 solo HR's which accounted for all of the runs he gave up, in a 3-1 loss to L.A.

His next start, against Charlotte on the 7th of September, was a true gem. In a 1-0 win, Lyerly got the complete game shutout, allowing just 4 hits while striking out 8 and walking 1.

His third post-injury start in a Brewers uniform went nearly as well as the second. In another complete game victory, Lyerly allowed just 1 run on 4 hits while striking out 6 and walking 5.

While he won't be repeating as MGL Pitcher of the Year, his third season as a big leaguer is looking to be another strong one, as he is now 12-6 with a 2.56 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. At the tender age of 23, Lyerly's career is off to a great start.

September call-ups

Among the call-ups the Brewers made with the September roster expansion was top prospect Joe McPhillips.
The hard-working, talented, and very popular young outfielder, who is a very gifted defender and plus runner, is expected to vie for a spot on the 1972 roster out of spring training. It appears that his bat might not be fully big league ready yet, but in his most recent game he showed signs of the great potential he has, going 3 for 5, hitting his first big league triple and driving in his first run as a Brewer.

Also brought up from AAA was catcher Spencer Wilson, who will surely contend with Jeff Darden (whose -1.0 WAR is the worst on the team) for the second catcher spot on the 1972 team behind starter Kevin Curtis.

A pair of relievers also are seeing their first opportunities in Brewers purple. Justin Bismark, the team's first round pick (#16 overall) in 1966, is at last getting a chance to prove that he is ready for the big time. Bismark is a hard-throwing righty with questionable control, but fits well in the Brewers scheme as a groundball specialist. He has a tremendous change-up to go along with his plus fastball.

Jordan Stephens, who came to the Brewers organization in the July trade that sent former back-up catcher Joey Townsend to Charlotte, has some big league experience but will now get a chance to try to stick at the WPK level with his new team. Stephens is another hard-throwing righty, even more gifted at inducing groundballs than Bismark with a great fastball and a still developing curveball. If his secondary pitch develops a bit more he has potential for top of the scale stuff to go with very good movement and potentially plus control. Intriguingly, Stephens is also quite a good hitter with solid power hitting potential. He has played third base some in his minor league career and it won't be a surprise if he gets at least a few pinch-hit opportunities here in the last few weeks of the season, and might even play a few innings at third.

Brewers up to 106, on verge on 3rd consecutive MGL title

Although the bats have been a bit quiet lately, good pitching and some timely hitting has helped the Brewers win 5 of the last 7 games while not scoring more than 4 runs in even one of those games.

At 106-48, the Brewers magic number is down to 1 with 8 games remaining (for both the Brewers and the Phoenix Speed Devils, the only other MGL team not already officially eliminated from the race.)

While it is premature to celebrate yet, management finds themselves looking forward towards the Brewers third World Series appearance and thinking about the best post-season roster and approach to make sure the team holds on to their current title as WPK champions.

Jamison Bash has been slumping lately but did hit HR number 40 a few days ago and it looks like he is assured of finishing with the best total in the WPK in that category, as his nearest competitor is 10 behind. He holds a narrow lead in RBI with 110. (Phoenix rightfielder Ju-ao Ju has 108.)

Chad Brown has also seen his offensive production dip of late but he is still tied for 4th in the MGL in batting average at .318. On the other hand, Ryan Rodgers has been hitting much better in the past month or so and now has a slash line of .312/.414/.396, is 6th in the MGL in batting average and second in OBP. (And hey, it's his 33rd birthday today- September 23rd, 1971- so Happy Birthday Ryan!)

Meanwhile, two Denver starting pitchers are battling each other for the MGL ERA crown. Daniel Torres, who had the best ERA in the MGL in 1970, is once again leading in that category at 1.94. Cheol-han Lee is right behind him with an ERA of 2.24. Veteran (35 year old) L.A. Spinner Jaime Schardein is also still very much in the running in this category at 2.29, as is Colby Muir of Detroit at 2.31. After that, another Brewer is 5th in ERA- Harry Lyerly at 2.50. Torres has a 17-3 record, Lee is 16-5 and Lyerly is now 13-6, having allowed just 1 run on 6 hits in 7 innings pitched in his most recent start (9 K, 0 BB), but did not get the decision in the 2-1 Brewers victory.

Compton calls it quits on career

Former Brewer (twice) Mark Compton has announced that this season is his last as a professional ballplayer.

Compton was one of the original Brewers and up until very recently held the team's single season HR record at 39 (Jamison Bash eclipsed him with his 40th in the past week). Compton's best years in the WPK, other than 1965 when in a Brewers uniform, came as a member of the Los Angeles Spinners. As a Spinner he lead the league twice in HR's and once in RBI. In his prime he was a solid rightfielder with a very strong arm. He was also known for his great eye and ability to draw at walk at the plate, though he also was prone to striking out at a pretty prodigious clip, leading the league in whiffs three straight years. In fact, his 176 strikeouts in 1968 is still the league's single season record for a batter. Although he will finish his career with a very poor career batting average (currently .216 lifetime with a handful of games remaining), he is tied for 5th best HR total in the WPK at 205. (Jamison Bash is 4th at 217.)

He was an All-Star in 1967 and won a silver slugger at rightfield in 1968. And, in his second stint with the Brewers, he finally got a World Series ring in 1970.

Brewers Clinch MGL Title!

Fittingly, the Brewers clinch the MGL title by defeating their nearest competitor, the Speed Devils, in the second game of a three game series in Phoenix. After dropping the first game 2-0, the Brewers got a great performance from sometime starter Will Smart, who held the Speed Devils to just 2 hits in 7 1/3rd scoreless innings, and improves to 8-1 with a 2.02 ERA. And in what was a scoreless tie going into the 6th inning, they got a huge hit from Bobby Erbakan- a 2-out, Grand Slam HR, Erbakan's 21st homer of the season. (Erbakan's previous season high was 10 HR's, set last year.)

The Brewers can now coast to the finish line while waiting to see which SJL team they will be facing in this years WPK World Series. The three main contenders are the three teams in the SJL who have won championships in the six years of the league's existence. Most likely the Brewers will be facing the Washington Night Train, who have won 6 straight.

Once that is resolved we will take a closer look at their World Series opponent and how they stack up against the Brewers.

Final WPK Standings and shift of power

The Brewers limp a bit to the finish line after clinching the MGL title, as they lose 5 of their last 6 games, including being swept by the second place Speed Devils at home.

The unfortunate Speed Devils finish with 105 wins- meaning both they and the Brewers break the previous season win record for a WPK team- and yet are on the outside looking in as the post-season begins. For the first time in WPK history, three teams record at least 100 wins, and they are all in the same league (MGL).

For the first five years of the WPK the balance of power clearly was tilted in favor of the Shoeless Joe League, as that is where the most dominant teams resided and where many of the biggest WPK stars played. The SJL won all of the first five WPK World Series. With the Brewers championship last season things began to appear to shift a bit, and this year saw a dramatic shift as the top SJL team won only 93 games. Now granted, there is no inter-league play in the WPK so it is possible that talent was just more evenly distributed in the SJL, but clearly the most dominant teams this year were in the MGL.

Some of this is that several of the biggest stars of the game have moved from the SJL to the MGL through free agency in the past few seasons- including Brewers Ryan Rodgers and Cheol-han Lee, as well as superstar L.A. leftfielder Travis Johnson (formerly with Jacksonville) and slugging Detroit firstbaseman Nate Kuykendall (formerly with Philadelphia.)
On the other hand, a glance at the leader boards, especially among batters/position players, shows that the MGL was dominated by aging veterans this year while the SJL has some quite young rising stars who put up great numbers in 1971, which might indicate that the balance of power is due to shift again soon.

One of the brightest young stars of the SJL is Boston Berserkers' centerfielder Justin Vargas. At 23, Vargas not only led the SJL in batting average (.353, and second best was just .319) but also in slugging percentage and OPS while finishing second in OBP. While Vargas finished third in WAR in the league, he should be a strong candidate for SJL MVP. Vargas was a first round (#11 overall) draft pick of the L.A. Spinners in 1966 but was traded to Boston in that very off-season and has proven to be a great deal for the Berserkers (the two players the Spinners got in the trade have not given them anywhere near comparable value-one, a veteran pitcher, was only with the team one season and pitched just 8 games and the other, a 23-year old firstbaseman, still has the potential to earn a bench role but not likely anything more than that.)

The Washington Night Train

And now a quick look at the Brewers opponent in the 1971 WPK World Series: the Washington Night Train.

The Night Train have been a bit inconsistent thus far in their history but they have never finished below fifth place (out of ten) in the SJL and this is their second SJL title. The first time they won the SJL was in 1967 (when they went 96-66) and that year they defeated the Portland Wild Things in the World Series, 4 games to 3.

The Night Train are led by a veteran starting pitching staff that could well give the Brewers fits. Ace Chris Hernandez is tied with Jake Harris for second among WPK pitchers in career WAR, behind the Brewers Cheol-han Lee. Bobby Cruz, the teams' captain, had one of his best seasons at age 32 and is great at inducing the groundball out. 24-year old Jose Casillas is on the rise and has nasty stuff in addition to also being able to induce a good deal of grounders. And with the ever-popular veteran Jose Foskey as their 4th starter, a real control specialist, the Night Train has a deep and talented staff.

Their bullpen is solid but the loss of their veteran reliever Julio Alvarez earlier in the season has left a bit of a gap. Alvarez appeared in 80 games in 1970 and led the league with 25 saves that season, but he went down with a torn UCL in early August of this season and at age 38 his career may be nearing its expiration date.

While the Night Train have some offensive stars the lineup isn't terribly imposing top to bottom and they are a bit under-powered. Youngsters Lazaro Lowndes and Eric Taylor lead the way and both provide speed and good contact hitting. Lowndes real weakness, other than a basic lack of homerun power, is that for all of his speed and base-stealing ability, he thus far has not been able to avoid a low stolen base success rate, generally being among the league leaders in both bases stolen and times caught stealing. This year he even took a step backwards in that regard as he stole 37 bases but was also caught an astounding 35 times.
Veteran rightfielder Eric Canova is the main power threat in the lineup, but at age 36 he is starting to show some decline and had an OBP of only .316 this season (after posting a fine .369 the previous year.)

Although the team doesn't have many true defensive standouts, with the possible exceptions of centerfielder Lowndes and shortstop Jeremy Patterson (the team's sparkplug), they also don't have any real weaknesses in this area and aren't likely to beat themselves with defensive lapses.

All in all, it should be a good match-up and it will likely come down to which great starting pitching rotation is sharpest and/or which team can capitalize on what might likely be rare scoring opportunities. (The Brewers can also hope that their power hitting game carries through into the post-season and that this gives them an advantage.)

Washington draws first blood- WPK World Series 1971, Game 1

The Brewers bats remain moribund to start the 1971 WPK World Series as they lose 3-0 at home in Game 1.

Daniel Torres struggled with his control but still kept his team within striking distance. Jaden Francis and David Brown did the same. But strike the Brewers did not.

Washington veteran starter Jose Foskey had to leave the game in the 6th inning with an as yet un-diagnosed arm injury, so we will see how that affects the series going forward.

15 inning disaster for Brewers- WPK World Series 1971, Game 2

It was a great pitching duel between two of the most celebrated starters in WPK history- Cheol-han Lee and Chris Hernandez in Game 2 of the 1971 WPK World Series, and not surprisingly runs were hard to come by most of the way as the teams finished the regulation 9 innings tied at 1-1.
The bullpens kept things that way through the 10th inning, the 11th inning, the 12th inning, the 13th....well, you get the idea.

Until, in the top of the 15th inning, the Night Train broke through. And boy did they break through. Thanks largely to some wildness on the part of reliever Jaden Francis, including a bases loaded, 2-out walk, and an error on the part of secondbaseman Tanner Yurek, but then capped off by a 2-out Grand Slam off the bat of former Brewer Willie Chavez, Washington blasted the doors off the game.

The Brewers now head to Washington for three games desperately needing to find some offense and at least a pair of road victories to get the series back to Denver.

Great, the first like I've gotten in this thread for some time (Sharkn20) and it's in response to my great pain in Game 2 of the 1971 World Series.

But seriously, Sharkn20, thanks for following and it's nice to know somebody is out there.

Spoiler alert- game 3 in Washington also ended in disappointment, in spite of a fine start by Harry Lyerly.

Haven't played game 4 yet but it certainly seems that the most we can hope for now is to not get swept (as we were in the 1969 WS.)

Yeah, I'm pretty committed to this one long term.
And will be moving it over to 20 soon and then will start a new thread in the subfolder for 20 once that gets rolling.
The low movement guy is Harry Lyerly and likely he will be the namesake for the new thread as Ruben "Streak" Souffront has likely played his last season as a Brewer. Which makes me sad but I'm hoping that Ruben can revive his career elsewhere, just without doing too much damage to us.

Lyerly, by the way, did give up a lot of homeruns this year, but still managed to have a fine season, going 14-6 and having the exact same ERA he had in his 1970 Pitcher of the Year season: 2.44. He missed about a month of the season (well, a bit more counting a rehab stint at AAA) so he only got 25 starts. Although he allowed 28 homers in those 25 starts, his WHIP (1.06) and batting average against (.221) were so good that the majority of them were solo shots.
At age 23, Lyerly now has a big league career record of 40-18 with a 2.58 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and WAR of 12.7. Not a bad start for the kid with the poor movement rating.

Brewers backs against the wall, WPK World Series 1971, Game 3

In spite of a fine performance by Harry Lyerly- his best post-season start yet- the Brewers drop Game 3 of the WPK World Series and are on the verge of elimination.
Lyerly worked 7 innings, giving up just 1 run on 2 hits, striking out 6 and walking 2. But the Brewers bats remain dormant and the bullpen beatable.
The Brewers scored their 2 runs on an 8th inning 2-run homer off the bat of secondbaseman Danny Roman, who had only 3 HR's in his 274 regular season plate appearances. The blow put the Brewers on top 2-1, but closer Eric Singer was unable to hold that lead as he allowed the Night Train to score a pair of runs in the bottom of the frame and they held on to take the game 3-2.

A few 1971 Brewers accomplishments

So before I move on to the 4th, and possibly last, game of the 1971 WPK World Series, I want to focus on a few accomplishments of Brewers players this season.

First of all, Jamison Bash easily finished with the most homeruns in not only the MGL but all of the WPK with 40 (nearest runner-up had 31) and barely took the RBI title with 113 (1 more than his nearest competitor, who was also one of 2 players with 31 HR's). Bash finished 1st in slugging percentage and OPS (entire WPK), tied for 1st (MGL) in WAR with 8.1, 1st in the MGL in total bases with 305, 1st in all of the WPK in extra base hits with 69, pretty easily first in isolated power at .287, 3rd in Win Probability Added (4.50) but 1st in the MGL in this category. There is a very good chance that Bash will be named the MGL MVP, which would be the first in his career if it happens. (The most likely player to win other than Bash would be Brooklyn's speedy 28-year old centerfielder Felix Lopez, who won the batting title with a .366 batting average, getting the most hits in the WPK with 234, the most stolen bases in the MGL (tied for most in WPK) at 43, and tied with Bash in WAR at 8.1.)

As he had in 1970, veteran lefty starter Daniel Torres once again posted the best ERA in the MGL, and in fact all of the WPK, at 1.96. Cheol-han Lee finished 3rd in the MGL at 2.39, and teammate Harry Lyerly just behind him at 2.44.

Cheol-han Lee is a strong contender for MGL Pitcher of the Year. He finished the season 16-6 with that 2.39 ERA, but also finished tied for 1st in shutouts (5), 1st in FIP at 2.49, 7th in WHIP at 1.10, 4th in rWAR at 7.2, tied for 1st in quality starts at 29, and 1st in WAR (by a decent margin) at 7.5. (There is a decent chance that L.A.'s Jason Wilson- who went 21-6 with a 2.77 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 6.0 WAR might stand in Lee's way.)

Brewers youngsters Harry Lyerly and Steve Green both finished with strong power numbers combined with pretty stingy walk rates. Impressively, Lyerly once again led the league in strikeouts in spite of starting 11 fewer games than his nearest competitor and almost 100 fewer innings. Lyerly naturally led the league easily in K/9, while teammate Steve Green finished second in the category. They were also 3rd and 4th, respectively, in K/BB.

In spite of slumping late in the season (what Brewers hitter didn't?), Chad Brown still managed to finish 3rd in the MGL in batting average. And while he did cross over into double figures in strikeouts, his 11 strikeouts in 544 plate appearances shows some fine plate discipline.

Brewers swept, series over- WPK World Series 1971, Game 4

Well, so much for the repeat.
After a great regular season, the Brewers get swept in the WPK World Series by the Washington Night Train.

This marks the 2nd WPK Championship for the Night Train. It is also the 2nd time in the past 3 World Series that Denver lost in a sweep.

Tough way to end it. A few key innings went the way of Washington.

Agreed.
For the most part the Brewers pitching staff and defense lived up to their reputations, but the offense remained on hiatus, as they had been for most of the last two weeks of the regular season.

Still, I can't be too unhappy about a 108 win season and three straight MGL titles.

Although a few of our starters are aging and might see declines soon (Jamison Bash, Ryan Rodgers, Tanner Yurek- whose decline seems to have already begun), a number of others are younger and look to be coming in to their own (Bobby Erbakan, Chad Brown, Kevin Curtis, Danny Roman, etc.) so with a still basically young and talented pitching staff hopefully we can continue to contend next season (1972.)

It should be interesting as the journey from 19 to 20 seems to have resulted in some slight alterations of our scouting teams view of our players. For instance, Harry Lyerly (who is the namesake of the new thread) seems to have fallen a bit in our scouts estimation. It will be interesting to see if his performance follows suit (I hope not!) Some others, like top prospect Joe McPhillips, seem to be even more highly thought of than before (similarly true with Bobby Erbakan.)

As a teaser, once some of the preliminary introductions are made in the new thread, I will be announcing the awards received at the end of the 1971 WPK season by Brewer players, and there are a few big ones.

Thanks for following along and see you on the other side!
