[Fantasy Baseball] 154/162 Game Mark
jcarwash31 : June 11, 2008 03:24 PM

I realize some of you may be well beyond this mark, but I thought it would be interesting for people to post certain player performances when they reach the 154 game and 162 game marks (since stats started being calcuated). I'm looking for anything interesting. Maybe it's a high HR, RBI, AVG guy or someone who drastically over or under performed. Pitching is a bit different. Perhaps 30 starts would be a good mark?

Anyway, here is what I got at 154 games:

Mickey "F'ing" Klutts hit 43 HRs, 118 RBIs, .307/.353/.538, had an OPS of .891, and he was hit by a pitch only once. I mention the HBP because the owner of the Kennard Killers was so happy when his team finally hit Klutts, because Klutts had been giving Killers pitching nightmares since the beginning.

edit: He also had 202 hits.

Whiskeytown has 152 games worth of stats right now, so I'll wait a few days on the hitters, but here's Ed Poole's pitching line after 31 games:

26-5
290.2 ip
187 h
79 bb
93 k
1.46 era
0.915 whip

Jack McDowell is 20-12, 3.12, and Gustavo Chacin is 18-13, 3.26.

Then there's Christy Mathewson, whose "real ball" season was better than Chacin's, but he's imploded on the mound. At various points Mathewson was 5-1, 1.50, and 8-4, 2.97. Now for some unexplainable reason, he's 13-17, 4.68. He's lost 13 of his last 17 games.

At 162 games here are Mickey Klutts's numbers:

101 runs
218 hits
49 hr
128 rbi
.315/.362/.561

So, in 8 games he added 8 points to his average, 16 hits, 6 HRs, and 10 RBI. I was hoping he'd get 50 HR.

Ford Fricks Asterisk : June 13, 2008 02:37 PM

Whiskeytown has reached 162 games worth of stats...

Offense (ranked 8th overall)
Runs - 108, King Kelly
Hits - 215, King Kelly
2B - 55, King Kelly & Tim Raines
3B - 9, Billy Werber
HR - 32, Johnny Bench
RBI - 102, Johnny Bench
BB - 77, Tim Raines
SO - 109, Johnny Bench
BA - .296, King Kelly
OBP - .356, Tim Raines
SLG - .478, Matt Stairs
OPS - .809, King Kelly

...nothing real exciting there, although it's a team effort. Augie Galan (.316) and Mickey Witek (.298) actually have the highest BA, but are 30-40 short of the 162 game mark. The biggest disappointment is Johnny Bench, who despite leading the team in HR & RBI, and having real ball numbers of .293 w/a .932 OPS, is hitting just .241 for me (.743 OPS is lowest in the lineup).

Pitching (ranked 1st overall)
Ed Poole: 28-5,
308.2 ip, 200 h, 12 hr, 88 bb, 99 k, 1.46 era, 0.933 whip
Jack McDowell: 21-12,
289 ip, 231 h, 22 hr, 107 bb, 172 k, 3.15 era, 1.170 whip
Christy Mathewson: 15-17,
287.1 ip, 312 h, 22 hr, 104 bb, 191 k, 4.51 era, 1.448 whip
Gustavo Chacin: 20-13,
306 ip, 277 h, 11 hr, 110 bb, 146 k, 3.18 era, 1.265 whip

...Poole is still 2nd in league ERA and 1st among those with over 20 innings pitched. He's also 2nd in WHIP. At one point he was 16-0. Black Jack McDowell leads the league in hitting batters with 21.

Roster move of note: I finally released Tony Mullane a few games ago. He was my original shortstop and played 55 games. He was of my favorites, because not only would he have been a useful sub under the fatigue rules (that we might one day have), but in real life he was the first star ball player in Akron (when they had one of the top minor league teams in the early 1880s). Of course, he was also an insufferable bastard in real life, too.

Anyway, he was replaced on the roster with an unusable scrub few a couple of days, but after winning that 162nd game, I picked up Bill Dahlen today. So I start a new 162 with a shortstop who hit .357 with a 1.010 OPS.

I like the team leaders rundown. I only have 4 guys at 162 games (a few are close) and Klutts leads in most statistical categories, but I'll do the rundown.

Offense (ranked 17th)
Runs - 101, Mickey Klutts
Hits - 218, Mickey Klutts
2B - 47, Alex McKinnon
3B - 9, Alex McKinnon
HR - 49, Mickey Klutts
RBI - 128, Mickey Klutts
BB - 82, Dummy Hoy (153 games played)
SO - 124, Matt Kata
HBP - 16, Yogi Berra
BA - .315, Mickey Klutts
OBP - .362, Mickey Klutts
SLG - .561, Mickey Klutts
OPS - .923, Mickey Klutts

My biggest dissapointment offensively has been 1949 Yogi Berra. He's hitting only .237 compared to hit "real ball" average of .277. He has hit 21 HRs, however, but that is still below his "real ball" pace. He can step into a pitch like few others.

I don't even need to discuss my 17th ranked pitching (mediocrity across the board!). Most of my pitchers post ERAs well above their "real ball" performance and none of them have reached the 30 start mark yet.

In addition to Actual and Normalized stats, I have added a link to Recent stats. From there, you will be able to see how your players have performed over the last X days/games. Looking at your stats over the past 154/162 games should be very easy now.

yoknapatawpha has now reached the 162 game stat mark (or at least 7 of its position players have). here are the leaders:

offense (ranked 10th overall)
runs - 110, pete rose
hits - 219, bob nieman
2b - 58, bob nieman
3b - 10, travis jackson
hr - 24, craig wilson
rbi - 105, craig wilson
bb - 211, jim brown
so - 159, craig wilson
ba - .365, jim brown
obp - .547, jim brown
slg - .488, jim brown
ops - 1.035, jim brown

pitching (ranked 24th overall)
carl hubbell: 21-12,
294 ip, 303 h, 29 hr, 94 bb, 158 k, 4.07 era, 1.350 whip
kid nichols: 17-15,
294.2 ip, 311 h, 18 hr, 98 bb, 121 k, 3.97 era, 1.388 whip
vic lombardi: 19-13,
285 ip, 331 h, 29 hr, 120 bb, 102 k, 5.27 era, 1.582 whip

the bizarre: jim brown is my player who went 1-for-2 with 2 bb and 1 k in real ball. that's translated to .365/.547/.488 in barnstorming, with 211 walks and 126 strikeouts. he only has 41 xbh, but i can't complain about a guy who reaches base in well over half his at-bats.

craig wilson leads the team in hr and rbi despite the fact i don't think he's ever batted higher than 6th in the lineup... while posting most of these stats, he's batted 8th.

the team: after months of ineptitude, they're on current streaks of 11-3 and 28-14, pulling within 3 games of .500 overall (124-127). they're also almost back to break even in rs/ra at -15, but that just means the offense has become pretty good while the pitching is still pathetic. it's been a long road trying to find anyone better than vic lombardi. this team could really benefit from activating bullpens, because it's carrying a few really good relievers. the whole rotation is underachieving, though.

walter johnson only gave up 3 HR and 248 hits era 2.21 everything else was close

motown baseball assoc. : July 24, 2008 10:17 AM

A few of the Morris Townies players (Nate Colbert, Bill Everitt, Desi Relaford) have reached the 162 game mark and a few others are close behind. My team leaders at the moment.

Offense (ranked 23rd overall)
runs - 96, Nate Colbert & Marquis Grissom (151 games)
hits - 201, Nap Lajoie (153 games)
2b - 54, Ted Williams (148 games)
3b - 15, Bill Everitt
hr - 34, Nate Colbert
rbi - 124, Nate Colbert
bb - 100, Ted Williams
so - 131, Nate Colbert
hbp - 9, Desi Relaford & Nap Lajoie
ba - .319, Ted Williams
obp - .423, Ted Williams
slg - .541, Ted Williams
ops - .964, Ted Williams

Pitching (ranked 22nd overall)

I only have 2 guys with more than 19 starts.
Joe Neale: 24-8
285 ip, 248 h, 22 hr, 90 bb, 106 k, 3.32 era, 1.186 whip
Randy Jones: 17-12
254.1 ip, 303 h, 29 hr, 92 bb, 151 k, 5.24 era, 1.553

Marquis Grissom is perhaps having the most interesting season for me. He was struggling early on hitting somewhere in the low .200s, flirting with the Mendoza Line. He became very familiar with the bench, but with the team struggling he was given another shot. He then got hot and just keeps getting hotter.

Marquis Grissom
Last 90 games: .326 ba, .387 obp, .479 slg, .866 ops
Last 30 games: .366 ba, .422 obp, .515 slg, .937 ops
Last 7 games: .419 ba, .471 obp, .613 slg, 1.083 ops
Year-to-Date (151 G): .293 ba, .350 obp, .438 slg, .788 ops

after only 86 games the diamond dust's Henry Blanco 1997 is hitting .338 62 hr 126 rbi

jcarwash31 : August 3, 2008 11:08 PM

Good Lord! And you're htting him leadoff?

For you Mickey Klutts haters, this is even worse. Blanco was 2 for 5 with 1 HR in 1997.

jimdandy : August 4, 2008 07:50 PM

had no offense till i moved him was kinda hoping no one would look at his stats. those seem to be the best players hope everybody throws them out

franco : August 5, 2008 08:58 AM

Implementing health for hitters (similar to pitchers) is at the top of my to-do list. Hitters with a low number of real world ABs will have their abilities quickly decline if they are played every day whereas full time players will be able to go a while before they will need to be rested.

jimdandy : August 21, 2008 06:30 PM

hit 162 with most of my starting line up

rbi - 192 Henry Blanco 1997 had 126 after 86 games
great numbers but couldn't keep up his pace from the 1st half
bb - 80 Vic Wertz 1950

ba - .313 Henry Blanco 1997
obp - .364 Doc Farrell 1933

Not a 162-game total, but I've got an eye on 1989 Roy Smith, SP for the Twins that year... He's been in the rotation a while for the Ann Arbor Tree Huggers, and he was merely a middling-type starting pitcher in real life that year... Still, he's had 15 starts, and he's 0-15. Somehow, he's only pitched twice in home games, so most of his appearances are of the 8-inning variety. Of his 13 road losses, 4 have taken place in the bottom of the 9th.

Funny thing is that he replaced 1931 Lefty Stewart in my rotation... In the "most recent 162" stats view, the breakdown goes like this:

Lefty Stewart, 18 starts, 8-10, 6.59 ERA, 1.837 WHIP
Roy Smith, 15 starts, 0-15, 6.35 ERA, 1.768 WHIP

I'd gladly fish around for a free agent to replace Roy Smith, but at this point, with the Tree Huggers approaching 750 games played and their winning percentage approaching .400 ... I'm inclined to leave him in the rotation until the poor guy catches a break and gets a win.

summerteeth : March 27, 2009 12:39 PM

i'd leave Smith in for a while. he's obviously had worse luck than Stewart.

Swampudlian : March 31, 2009 12:28 PM

Roy Smith is now the proud owner of a 1-16 record. 17th time was the charm:

http://www.thetoolsofignorance.com/games/barnstorm/eventlog.php?id=14444&type=barn

Thank you, Kevin Kobel. Went and looked him up... In the year in question (1979), he had 27 starts and a 6-8 record... That must be some kind of record for fewest decisions with that many GS.
