Kerplunk, and the batter gets his base. No one bruised more batters in 1970 then Montreal Expos SP Bill Stoneman. Stoneman hit 14 opposition hitters while going 7-15 with a 4.59 ERA in 30 starts for the Expos that season in real life. Interesting enough in real life he plunked 12 in the 1969 as well, but his control improved in 1971 only hitting 5 batters. In the SIM so far, he has hit 3 pitchers this season and is on pace for 11. But he also has a 8-3 record with a 3.05 ERA in 13 starts. In real life, Stoneman had a no hitter for the Montreal Expos in his 5th MLB start and the Expos 9th game in franchise history. Stoneman was selected by the Expos in the 1968 expansion draft. Stoneman was orginally drafted by the Cubs in 1966.

Boston Red Sox SP Ray Culp hit 11 opposition hitters in 1970 while finishing 17-14 with a 3.04 ERA in 33 starts in real life. Arguably, it was Culps best season in the majors, and his 2nd of back to back 17 win seasons in real life. In the SIM, he was 12-11 with a 3.34 ERA in 33 starts in 1969 and is 4-2 with a 3.65 ERA in 10 starts this year. Culp hit 20 batters in the SIM in 1969 while hitting just 2 so far this season. In his 1st season of MLB, he had a good start to his career with a 14-11 record and 8th in strikeouts, but he also led the league in walks. He was selected as an All Star in 1963, his rookie season as well the Sporting News named Culp their rookie of the year. He twice led the league in hit batsman, the NL in 1965 with 12 and in 1970 in real life with 11 in the AL.

Kansas City Royals Rookie SP Bob Johnson had them ducking in 1970 when he plunked 11 batters. Johnson himself had a relatively short career spanning from a cup of coffee with the Mets in 1969 until his last season in the majors in 1977, he did not play in the MLB in 1975 or 1976. His java in New York came with a World Series Ring and he had another in real life in 1971 with the Pirates. In the SIM he is 2-1 with a 2.72 ERA in 5 starts for the Royals. He has hit 2 batters so far so is on pace for so he is on pace for 7 HP. In April of 1969, Johnson was ranked the 12th MLB prospect.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Don Sutton, didn't really hit too many batters in his career, just 82 in 5282 innings or 1-2 every 100 innings. But 1970 was different when he walloped 10 men in just 260 innings. Now it is a possibility that because he gave up the most HRs ever in his career in 1970 (38) that he pitched MAD. Nevertheless Sutton had them a little uneasy in the batters box in 1970. So far in the SIM, he hasn't bruised up anybody, but he has only given up 4 round trippers so far and is 6-1 with a 1.60 ERA which is much better then his real life stats that season.

Pittsburgh Pirates SP Dock Ellis had the batters "knee's knocking" during the 1970 MLB campaign. Ellis clobbered 10 various National League hitters in 1970 while going 13-10 with a 3.21 ERA in 30 starts is real life. Like Sutton, Ellis was not know for erratically hitting batters, he hit just 44 in 2127 innings so about a pair every 100 innings, but in 1970 it was 5 every 100 innings. In the SIM, Ellis is 3-6 with a 3.50 ERA in 11 starts, he has smoked just one National leaguer so far. Maybe he has not had the LSD kick in yet so far. (He admitted to pitching under in the influence of LSD and completing a No Hitter in the process in 1970) The troubles for Ellis are just beginning.... stay tuned....

Facts....... and more Facts.

The 1970 MLB June Amateur Draft... every season there are booms and busts, put quick frequently there are many surprises come draft time. In 1970 the 1st pick overall was by the San Diego Padres in C Mike Ivie. Ivie made his debut with the Padres in September 1971. Ivie did play in the MLB from his debut until his final game in May 1983 with the Detroit Tigers. Ivie was only one of five players to hit 2 "Pinch Hit Grand Slam HRs" in the same season. Although Ivie was drafted as a catcher, he started his career with the Padres at 1B. It was an accident with an hunting knife in the 1979 off season forced Ivie to become more of a bench player as he sliced part of his fifth finger on his hand.

The second overall pick in the MLB draft was the Cleveland Indians selecting RHP Steve Dunning. Dunning started 84 games and pitched in 136 games over 7 years with the Indians, Rangers, Angels, Expos and eventually the Athletics. Dunning went straight from the draft to making his debut with the Indians on June 14th, 1970. On May 11th, 1971, Dunning hit a Grand Slam HR off of Athletics pitcher Diego Segui, a feat that wasn't accomplished again by an American League pitcher until 2006.

Over 10 years he got into 687 games hitting .230 with 57 HRs and 230 RBIs. Foote's expectations as a catcher for Montreal were so high that the Expos attempted to convert Gary Carter to RF. By 1976, Carter replaced Foote at catcher and Foote was soon traded.

The Milwaukee Brewers made the 4th pick and grabbed C Darrell Porter. Porter made his debut with the Brewers in 1971 when he appeared in 22 games, he became a regular with the Brewers in 1973. Over 17 years he hit .247 with 188 HRs and 826 RBIs in 1782 games. Porter was a 4-time All Star, won a World Series with the Cardinals in 1982 and was the World Series MVP. In 1980, Porter checked him self into a drug rehab center after admitting to abuse of drugs such as alcohol, cocaine and marijuana.
