Facts..... and more Facts

The 1969 MLB Pennant Races in Real Life.

The 1969 season was the first year in Major league history that the two leagues had divisions. The first round was now a League Championship Series to determine the eventual World Series combatants.

The NL East
The Cubs won 35 of their first 50 games to start the season and by mid August led the Mets and Cardinals by 9 games. The Mets won 37 of their last 48 games while the Cubs were 20-28 over the same period. The Mets won the pennant by 8 games. Well the Miracle Mets are going to need more than a miracle, they will need a "commissioner mode"intervention to win the pennant and go on to a World Series championship. The Mets would have to go 56-4 to match their real life record. In real life the Mets were 58-44 on this date, we don't have to take a look much farther then SP Tom Seaver's season. Seaver was 25-7 with a 2.21 ERA in 35 starts in real life in 1969, in the sim he is 6-12 with a 3.04 ERA in 23 starts so far. At the plate, Cleon Jones is hitting in the sim .324 with 4 HRs and 45 RBIs with an .814 OPS. In real life he was 340 with 12 HRs and 75 RBIs and a .904 OPS.

The NL West
With 3 weeks to play, 5 teams were all within 2 games of each other. With 2 weeks to play, the Giants led the Dodgers and Braves by 1/2 game with the Reds just 2 back. The Dodgers then lost 8 in a row to fall to 4th place. The Brave won 10 in a row and clinched the pennant on the 2nd last day of the season. In the sim its certainly not a 5 team race, but definitely a 3 team race. The Braves who won the NL West are currently tied with the Dodgers, so this looks like it could be tight race like in real life.

The AL East
In the AL East, the Orioles took the division in a landslide 19 game lead over the defending World Champions, the Detroit Tigers. The Senators were a pleasant surprise as the finished with 86 wins and their first winning season since joining the league in 1961. The Orioles are within striking distance of the Yankees, but I doubt it will be the blowout that happened in real life. The Yankees were just 52-56 on August 4th of the 1969, they are 20 games better in the sim mostly because of the exploits of SP Fritz Peterson. In real life Peterson was 17-16 with a 2.55 ERA in 37 starts. In real life the Orioles won 109 games, they would have to finish 44-12 to match that record

The AL West
The Twins led the divisions most of the season and won the pennant by 9 games over the Athletics. In the sim the race is quite close, on August 4th of 1969 in real life the Athletics were 61-42 while the Twins were 67-41.

Pirates always over perform

When ever I play the years 1969-1972 the Pittsburgh Pirates always over perform. Typically it is their pitching that over perfortms the most.
They almost always win the NL East.

Interesting, I did a Historical replay several years ago and the Pirates didn't make the post season in 1969 or 1970, made it in 1971 and lost to the Giants.

Just a quick glance of how the Pirates starting pitching is looking in the SIM vs Real life in 1969

Dock Ellis 10-9 2.69 (11-17 3.58)
Steve Blass 9-8 3.21 (16-10 4.46)
Luke Walker 5-3 4.75 (4-6 3.64)
Jim Bunning 13-6 2.66 (10-9 3.81)
Bob Veale 14-6 3.05 (13-14 3.23)
Bob Moose 9-2 1.36 (14-3 2.91)

Moose had 19 starts in RL and has 11 so far in the SIM so he has a few left. Walker had 15 starts in RL and he has just 6 so far, so we will be seeing more of him

Facts.... and more Facts

The 1969 Season was most remembered for the "Miracle Mets" and Major League Expansion, but there were other events during the season in real life.

* Dodgers Willie Davis 31 game hitting streak from August 1st-September 3rd. (Davis was 54 for 124 with 1 HR and 23 RBIs hitting .435. Davis started the streak hitting .260 and ended the streak hitting .318.

* 6 Players hit for 3 HRs in a game, PIT Roberto Clemente, WAS Mike Epstein, OAK Reggie Jackson, BOS Joe Lahoud, CHA Bill Melton and ATL Bob Tillman. For Tillman July 30th represented 25% of his HR production for the season.

* 2 Players had 6 hits in a game, DET Jim Northrup and KCA Bob Oliver.

* Cubs LF Billy Williams had 4 doubles in an 11-3 win over the Phillies on April 9th.

* Athletics RF Reggie Jackson hit double figures in RBIs with 10 on June 14th in a 21-7 blowout of the Red Sox. Jackson was 5 for 6 with 2 HRs.

* Giants 2B Ron Hunt while with the Expos in 1971 set a MLB high with 50 times getting hit by a pitch, so its no surprise that on April 29th as a Giant, he got hit 3 times in a 4-3 win over the Reds in 13 innings. Luckily for the Reds, Hunt never scored once after being plunked.

* There were 6 NO-HITTERS pitched in 1969. Montreal Expos's SP Bill Stoneman got the 1st of the season on April 17th in a 7-0 win over the Phillies, I am sure that the expansion fans in Montreal did not expect to see that feat so early in the franchises infancy, in game 9. The others were CIN Jim Maloney, HOU Don Wilson, BAL Jim Palmer, CHN Ken Holtzman and late in the season, PIT Bob Moose. There were 16 One Hitters in 1969 as well. On May 1st Maloney no hits the Astros, the next day Wilson no hits the Reds. Talk about pay back. Palmer's no hitter was viewed with best seat in the house by home plate umpire Lou DiMuro. 41 years later, DiMuro's son Mike was calling balls and strikes for Roy Hallidays perfect game. Lou DiMuro's name comes up again in the World Series when he over-turns a call that Mets manager Gil Hodges argued was a Hit by a Pitch. With the Orioles up 3-0 Hodges shows DiMuro a scuff mark on Cleon Jones shoe that convinces DiMuro he was in fact hit by a pitch, the Mets go on to win the game and the World Series... its a Miracle.

* Cardinals SP Steve Carlton struck out 19 hitters in a September 15th 4-3 loss to the Miracle Mets. All the starting 9 of the Mets had struck out at least once including LF Amos Otis would was given a seat by Carlton 4 times.

* "Pitcher has a Rubber Arm" as 18 Major League starting pitchers pitched past the 10th inning in 1969 including Giants SP Juan Marichal. On August 19th, Marichal went 13.1 innings allowing 6 hits while striking out 13 in a 1-0 loss to the Mets in the 14th inning. Marichal's counterpart Gary Gentry went 10 innings. Tommy Agee hit a walk off, 1-out HR to hand Marichal the loss. St Louis SP Bob Gibson went 13 innings in a 2-1 win over the Giants. Gibson beat Giants Gaylord Perry who pitched 12 innings in the game. Gibson actually opened the bottom of the 13th with a Single off Frank Linzy, he moved to 2nd on a Linzy's Wild Pitch, moved to 3rd on a Phil Gagliano single and eventually scored on Curt Flood's walk off single.

* Phillies Grant Jackson and Indians Luis Tiant both surrendered 5 HRs in an outing. Jackson lasted 5 innings in a 6-3 loss to the Braves while Tiant's tatter tough night was in a 10-7 loss in Fenway to the BoSox. We mentioned Bob Tillman of the Braves earlier with his 3 HR game, well it was at the cost of Grant Jackson's night.

* Over stayed their Welcome. 7 MLB pitchers gave up 9 runs in a game during the 1969, 2 of them did it in less the 4 innings. Cubs Ken Holtzman got lit up in Montreal's Jarry Park in a 11-4 Expos win over the Cubs. Holtzman's line was 3.2 IP, 9 H, 9 R, 7 ER, 1 BB and 2 Ks. To add insult to injury, Expos CF Adolfo Phillips swiped home off of Holtzman. Dodgers SP Joe Moeller accomplished the feat in 3.2 innings as well. He allowed 10 hits in a 14-13 loss to the Giants.

* On July 15th, Padres SP Clay Kirby had a little bit of a control problem. In a 10-3 win over the Giants. Kirby walked 10 while giving up 4 hits over 7.2 innings.

* 10 Free Passes, on April 15th in a 11-10 win by the Reds over the Giants in 12 innings, both teams combined for 10 Intentional Walks. Gaylord Perry came on in relief for the Giants with the bases loaded, no outs in the 10th inning. Over the next 2 innings including the walk off single in the 12th Johnny Bench, Perry was asked to throw 4 wide ones 4 times.

* Who would guess. The Montreal Expos franchises 1st HR did not come from anyone named Bailey or Staub, it was none other than pitcher Dan McGinn on April 8th off Tom Seaver.

* On May 18th, the Twins steal 5 bases in the 3rd inning against Tigers SP Mickey Lolich and C Bill Freehan, 4 of them coming on Harmon Killebrew's at bat. Cesar Tovar and Rod Carew both stole home that inning.

* On June 21st, with the score tied 3-3 entering the 10th inning, The Twins score 11 runs to beat the Athletics 14-4.

On July 9th with 1 out in the 9th inning, Cubs Jim Qualls lines a single to ruin Mets Tom Seaver's perfect game. The Mets go onto a 4-0 win and would be later known as "Tom Seaver's Imperfect Game"

* On August 14th, the Chicago Cubs have a 9 1/2 game lead on the New York Mets. When the season is done, the Cubs trail the Mets by 8 games, a 17 1/2 game swing.

The California Angels have traded RP Hoyt Wilhelm and RP Bob Priddy to the Atlanta Braves for Clint Compton and Mickey Rivers. The 47 year old Wilhelm is 3-4 with 6 saves, a 3.99 ERA in 37 games (49 IPs) for the Angels. A late bloomer, Wilhelm did not start his MLB career until he was 29. Wilhelm's knuckle-ball is partially responsible for his longevity. But military toughness could be another reason. He carried a piece of shrapnel in his back as a result of an injury he sustained during WWII. The 29 year old Priddy is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA in 1 appearance for the Angels. The Angels got back CF Mickey Rivers who will make his debut in the MLB next season and RP Clint Compton who will make his debut with the Cubs in 1972.

The Weeks Major Transactions

The New York Yankees have traded CFJimmie Hall to the Chicago Cubs for a player to be named later. The 31 year old is hitting .214 with 1 HR and 19 RBIs in 66 games for the Yankees. Hall is a 2-time All Star. Making his professional baseball debut in 1956 with the Washington Senators D-Level Superior Senators, it took until April 1963 for him to make his MLB debut. But when he did, a timely injury to the Twins CF on allowed Hall to start 125 games in 1963 hitting 33 HRs and 80 RBIs. The 33 HRs is still his current career high. Hall combined with Harmon Killebrew, Bob Allison and Tony Oliva to help the Twins tie a MLB record for 4 consecutive HRs to break a 3-3 tie with the Kansas City Athletics in 1964. After a beaning by LHP Bo Belinsky a few weeks later, Hall began to wear a protective flap on his helmet and appeared to be tentative against LHP the rest of his career to the point where the Twins would sit him against tough lefties.
