In addition to the standard draft there was the AA draft. This is a draft of any fringe player (fringe meaning a batter with a % or a pitcher with a spot start rating and no relief rating )

Teams were able to hold the rights to up to five AA players who can not be used this season. Franchises can retain up to five rookies that they already had rights to and then can fill any remaining spots via said draft.

Dynasty 100 Loss All Futility League Report: East Divisions 5-24

The latest of a weekly series on the teams in my Online (or in person) Dynasty baseball simulation leagues I run. All are leagues are currently full but if you have an interest in joining the expanded futility league next season or want to be in the waiting list for the great teams league leave a message in comments.

This week we visit the Dynasty All Pathetic 100 loss league consisting only of teams that lost 100 games in a season. As of today most teams have 10 or less games for their season. All starts are current as of 9:30 PM EST Saturday

American League

1973 Chicago White Sox 1st place

When we last left the 1970 White Sox Tampa Bay was nipping at their heels and how it would end was anyone’s guess. Today barring a historic last minute collapse the White Sox look poised to lock up the AL East. 9 1/2 games up with 11 to play.

HeroesBill Melton (.268 35 HR 124 RBI ) and Ed Herrmann (..291 37 HR 103 RBI) are contending for the RBI & HR lead respectively. Meanwhile  Tommy John Quest for 20 wins might come up short, but he’s continues to lead the league in innings and remains in the top five in ERA, wins, K’s and avg against.

Zeros When last time we looked Sid O’Brien was hitting a bit better than Bobby Knoop and still is .221 to .219 but also like last time his fielding numbers .927 at 3rd and .947 at 2nd aren’t up to grade. If you want to point to a reason why Chicago might clinch this week starter Barry Moore isn’t one of them at 5-9 with a team worst 6.28 ERA over 25 starts.

Wild Cards: The White Sox are the only team in the AL with an ERA under 4 (3.98) and the biggest part of that is the Solid Defense up the middle provided by Luis Aparicio at short, Bobby Knoop at second base and Ken Berry in Center Field.

Coming Attractions: Chicago only needs two wins to clinch but the schedule won’t help much as they play their final three game home series against the west leading 2008 Seattle Mariners and then finish the season on the road visiting the red hot 1973 Texas Rangers 3 three then head for Tampa Bay for a pair against the 2nd Place 2002 Devil Rays before finishing the regular season in Kansas City with three against the 2005 Royals.

Injury Report: The team is all present and accounted for although pitcher Bart Johnson is a tad overworked. However Manager Ingemi has noted that he will be pitching John on three days rest in order to give him the three starts needed for a chance at 20 wins (currently at 17) that might be a risky move with the playoffs coming up.


2002 Tampa Bay Devil Rays 2nd 67-76 10 GB Tragic number 2

Despite some of the biggest producers in the league Tampa Bay finds itself on the cusp of elimination with 11 games to go. Can their big bats pull off a final miracle to give them that chance?

Heroes: The one two punch of Aubrey Huff who leads the majors in Batting, Slugging, OPS and Hits while leading the AL in OBP and HR & RBI’s is complemented by Randy Wynn who leads the majors in runs while settling for 2nd in the AL in batting, Triples, OPS 3rd in Doubles, 4th in hits and 5th in OPS.

Zeros: Unfortunately while Huff and Wynn taketh , pitchers like starters Joe Kennedy (6-12 5.00 ERA .299 Avg against, Tanyon Sturtze (9-9 5.15 ERA 3.03 avg against ) givith away with a lot of help from the bullpen members like Wilson Alverez (5-7 6.96 ERA 1 sv 4 bs ) givith away.

Wild Card: While I specified Alversz under zeros due to the worst ERA on the team the closing staff in general like Steve Kent (3 saves 5 blown) Victor Zambrano (4 saves 4 blown) and particularly Estiban Yan (23 saves 10 blown) contributed to the Rays having the most blown saves in the AL

Coming Attractions: Tampa is the only other AL east team with meaningful games reaming concluding their final road trip with three in Baltimore to face the 2018 Orioles and 3 more in Kansas City vs the 2005 Royals. Then it’s back home to finish the season with a pair against the 1970 White Sox and 3 vs the 1973 Texas Rangers.

Injuries: If Tampa is Eliminated this week it won’t be due to injuries as all are healthy and ready to play


2018 Baltimore Orioles 59-84 3rd 18 GB

In theory the O’s have a shot to catch Tampa Bay to finish 2nd but their main concerning is keeping that half game lead over Detroit to keep from finishing in the basement and trying to miss the 90 loss mark.

HeroesJohnathan Villar has been a bright spot on the O’s leading the league in SB with a chance to catch Huff for the Runs lead while 3rd in the league in walks and top ten in OBP, OPS & hits. When they managed to get a late lead closer Mychal Glvens has done the job leading the league with 28 saves while blowing only 4

Zeros: Starters David Hess (7.46 ERA .310 avg against) and Bundy Dillan (6-15) 6.34 ERA .311 avg against have a lot to do with where the Orioles are but according to manager Keith D the range or lack there of of outfielders Trey Mancini, Danny Valencia and occasional lapses by Adam Jones when he plays right have a lot to do with the team’s 5.83 ERA.

Wild Cards: Manny Machado came back to the O’s late in the season but he has made an impact hitting .344 and driving 20 in 22 games. Would a full season have done the trick?

Coming attractions: Baltimore will have a lot to do with how things end with 9 games at home first with a chance to eliminate the 2002 Tampa Bay Devil Rays 3 then 3 vs 1982 Minnesota Twins also dodging elimination then finishing their home season with a pair vs the West leading 2008 Seattle Mariners fighting to keep their lead before traveling to Detroit to take on the 2003 Tigers in three games to decide who will take up the division’s rear.

Injuries: If Baltimore had made it to the playoffs there was a chance that infielder Tim Beckham might have played again this season but as it is Baltimore will have to play spoiler without him.


2003 Detroit Tigers 59-85 4th place 18 1/2 GB

The Tigers are playing for pride and thanks to a late Mets surge prevent themselves from finishing with the worst record in the majors. Can they pass the Orioles to finish 3rd or will they become a byword for futility?

HeroesDimitri Young remains one of the most dangerous hitters in the league currently top in in six different offensive categories and in striking distance in batting slugging and OPS. Alex Sanchez 13 Triples leads the league and his .322 avg is good enough for 8th with a chance to go higher.

Zeros: Mike Maroth leads the American league with 18 losses which is not a surprise given his .312 avg against and 6.41 ERA, but Nate Comejo’s 6.53 ERA & .347 avg is worse despite his 11-13 record but even though Gary Knotts 6.18 & .305 avg against his better than both his 3-11 record is a lowlight for the team.

Wild Card: Despite playing in home run friendly Detroit for half their games the Tigers are Dead last in the AL in homers with only 120 so far this season. Meanwhile their team ERA 5.15 is only outdone by the O’s in futility.

Coming Attractions: Detroit will have a lot to do with how the West is won welcoming the 1973 Texas Rangers and the 2008 Seattle Mariners for 3 each at home before their final brief two game road trip to Minnesota vs the 1982 Twins become coming home to face the 2018 Orioles to decide who is the worst team of them all.

Injuries: Everyone is healthy but given their record not sure if that’s good or bad.


National League East

2009 Washington Nationals 96-50 1st Clinched

The Washington Nationals have had the best record in the majors and the only question left is will they get to the 100 win mark. They are the prohibitive favorite for the World Series but in the playoffs anything can happen.

Heroes:Adam Dunn, josh Willingham, Nyler Morgan Christan Guzman & Willie Harris are all leading or in the top 3 of every offensive category except doubles n the mound closer Mike MacDougal has a 1.98 ERA & leads the league in saves (28) only blowing 5.

Zeros: Livan Hernandez has managed to go 5-8 win 30 starts on a 96 win team. I suspect his 6.52 ERA and .323 avg against has something to do with this. Another weak link is reliever Ron Villone who despite his 6-4 record has blown 4 of 6 games with a 5.30 ERA in 65 games.

Wild Cards: How good is this team? Catcher Will Nieves is about the only member of the team not producing big his .258 avg is the team low with only 1 homer and his 49 RBI is the lowest almond any player with more than 200 ab.

Coming attractions: the quest for 100 wins goes on at home with 3 vs the 1998 Florida Marlins and 2 vs the 2010 Pittsburgh Pirates before finishing the regular season in NYC with 3 vs the 1967 Mets

Injury Report: Wil Nieves will miss game one vs the Marlins and Austin Kearns will not be available until the playoffs but the question is will the Nats sit key starters vs letting them compete for batting and slugging titles?


1998 Florida Marlins 80-66 2nd place 16 GB Eliminated

In any other division the Marlins would either be leading or in the thick of things but thanks to the domination of the Nationals they will have to wait for expansion next year for a chance at a playoff spot.

Heroes: Edger Renteria is tied for the league lead in runs (115) & 3rd in SB. CLIFF FLOYD is 3rd in the league in RBI’s (116) & hits (179) and top 10 in batting slugging and OPS and doubles.. One the Mound Livan Hernandez is third in ERA (3.02) and 4th in wins, (14) K’s (170) and inning pitched (217 2/3). In the Pen Matt Mantei is not only 15 of 17 in save chances but 9-4 with a 2.28 ERA out of the pen.

Zeros: If you want to point fingers at how Florida ended up eliminated. Simply look at Andy Larkin (0-8 in 30 games 17 starts ERA 7.13 avg .321) and Ryan Dempster (0-6 10 starts 12.16 ERA .420 avg against. If even five of those 14 losses had been wins. Florida would not be eliminated yet.

Wild Card: Florida as a team is only 1 game over .500 in nine inning games but once you get into extras they are 16-3 the best record by far in the majors and that’s after going 2-3 in their last five games in extra.

Coming Attractions: Florida is playing for pride and stats these days with 3 at Washington vs the 2009 Nationals followed by a quick 2 game final homestand vs the 1967 Mets before heading back on the road Pittsburgh to end their season vs the 2010 Pirates.

Injury Report: Veteran Catcher Gregg Zaun will miss the 1st two against the Nats but will be back to finish the season.


2010 Pittsburgh Pirates 73-73 3rd place 23 GB Eliminated

The Pirates can claim a moral victory. For a ling time they had the worst record in the league and fought back to .500 with 8 games to play. If they were in the west they would only be a game out. Can they finish with a record that would have won the west?

Heroes:Aramas Ramirez is leading the league in RBI’s s (179) and top 10 in batting slugging and OPS and doubles.. Brian Giles is hitt .324 (3rd) with an OBP .435 (2nd) OBS of 1.004 (2nd) slugging .569 (2nd) third in runs (113) triples (11) and walks (105) On the mound Dave Williams 2.80 is currently 2nd s (170) as is his WHIP of 1.01.

Zeros: Mike Fetters leads the NL in blown saves with 8 a 40% failure rate. but with an 8.49 ERA that’s to be expected. At the plate Jack Wilson’s triple crown numbers of .218 3HR 39 RBI’s isn’t scaring anybody.

Wild Cards: Pittsburgh offense is driven by the HR their 148 is third in the majors , their .250 team batting avg is however also 3rd worst in the majors.

Coming Attractions: Pittsburgh’s quest for an over .500 record continues in NY with three vs the 1967 Mets then heads for DC for a pair against the 2009 Nationals before they head home to finish vs the 1998 Florida Marlins.

Injury Report: Armando Rios and Mike Lincoln are both out for the year. Damaso Marte will miss the series vs the Mets but Keith Osik will be available by game 3.


1967 New York Mets 58-88 38 GB Eliminated.

For a good chunk of the season there was a real question if the Mets would loos 100 but now they have an outside chance of NOT finishing with the worst record in the majors? Can they pull one final rabbit out of the hat?

Heroes While :Tommy Davis at 179 hits (2nd) and a .320 avg (4th) and 8th in SB is worth a mention The fact that Tom Seaver has won 20 games for the team with the worst record is the majors (tied for 1st with Randy Johnson is astounding. Seaver is 7th in ERA 2nd in Strikeouts (213) 8th in innings, and 1st in fewest HR per 9 innings (0.49) the ONLY non relief category that anyone is beating Johnson in. If it wasn’t for Randy he would be a shoo in for the NL Cy Young.

Zeros: How poor have Jerry Grote and Jerry Bucheck hit? Tom Seaver has a better avg than both. But if you want to choose a zero Well there’s Don Cardwell (5-14) Jack Fisher (3-20) leading the league in losses and Dennis Bennett (5-11) and of course Ron Taylor with 4 saves in 11 chances.

Wild card: How critical is Seaver? The Mets 4.51 ERA is 7th in the 16 team major leagues. remove Seaver and it becomes 4.80 which would be 11th. But when you hit only 67 home runs last in the majors not to mention last in the majors in doubles hits and RBI’s and last in the NL in walks those 20 wins look even more miraclious.

Coming Attractions: The Mets have three at home vs the 2010 Pittsburgh Pirates before jetting to Florida for their final away series vs the 1998 Marlins before ending the season vs the 2009 Washington Nationals. Can Seaver finish ahead of Johnson in wins?

Injury Report: The entire team is healthy for those final eight games?

Dynasty 100 Loss All Futility League Report: East Divisions

The latest of a weekly series on the teams in my Online (or in person) Dynasty baseball simulation leagues I run. If you have an interest in joining one leave a message in comments.

This week we visit the Dynasty All Pathetic 100 loss league consisting only of teams that lost 100 games in a season. We are in the home stretch here with about 40 games to go of a 154 game season.

AL East

1970 Chicago White Sox

With 38 games to go the Mariners are just one series away from tying. Can the White Sox continue to hold their lead with a few big bats and and the best pitching in the AL or will a suspect defense at the corners let them down?

Heroes: Bill Melton (29 HR 98 RBI ) and Ed Herrmann (30 HR 80 RBI) may be the 2nd best HR duo for a team but they have made the difference in game after game. Meanwhile on the mound Tommy John has been an innings horse 208 innings, 10 complete games and a respectable 3.72 ERA

Zeroes: Barry Moore has been much worse than his 5-5 record indicates, with a 5.69 ERA and a .296 batting avg against he’s kept many a door open. Meanwhile while Sid O’Brien has been acceptable at the bat when occasionally starting his .933 percentage at 2nd and .930 at 3rd has helped extend plenty of rallies but when it come to bad defense Walt Williams takes the cake with an .897 in left and a 917 in right.

Wild Cards: The best arms in the White Sox bullpen are looking tired as the season nears its end. That could spell disaster shortly.

Coming attractions: The Pale Hose finish a 4 city roadtrip with a pair against the 1st place 1982 Twins before a quick stop at home for a pair vs the 2003 Tigers before heading off to Baltimore for a 4 game series that will likely make or break the 2018 Orioles.


2002 Tampa Bay Devil Rays

Tampa under it’s new manager has risen to within three games of Chicago and on occasion even closer. Can the timely hitting overcome an average pitching staff?

Heroes: No question who the heroes are on this team Aubrey Huff leads the league in batting (.358) Slugging .631 OB+Slugging (1.053) and Runs Batted in. and is top five in Runs, Hits and On Base Percentage. The only reason he’s not a lock for the MVP is teammate Randy Wynn who leads the league in Runs, Triples, Stolen bases 2nd in Avg, .(356) Hits (172) Doubles (37) and is top five in two others.

Zeroes: Estaban Yan may have 21 saves but he’s also blown 8 on the way accounting 4.11 ERA & 6-10 record, and of course a lot of runs don’t help a lot when you have starters Joe Kennedy (6-9 ERA 5.00 AVG .302) and Tanyon Sturtez (7-7 ERA 4.99 Avg .304) helping the other guys along.

Wild Cards: Almost half of their remaining games are against teams currently in or tied for 1st place in a division.

Coming Attractions: It’s two in Minnesota against the 1st place 1982 Twins before a 9 game home stand vs 2008 Mariners (4), 2018 Orioles (2) and the 2005 Royals (3).


2018 Baltimore Orioles

Despite losing their manager early in the season the Orioles still have an outside shot (a very outside shot). Can this ship without a rudder steer itself straight in the closing weeks of the campaign?

Heroes: Jonathan Villar has provided the triple crown numbers for the team (.325, 21HR 71 RBI) while leading the team in runs by more than 40 and stealing 37 bases. While reliever Mychal Givens has proved to be not only a workhorse but one of the best closers in the league with 23 saves with only 4 blown and a 6-2 record to go along with it.

Zeroes: Having a great closer doesn’t help if you can’t get to him and the O’s boast the worst pitching in the AL as David Hess (7.58 ERA 19 HR allowed .316 avg) Dylan Bundy (5.95 ERA 19 HR .305 allowed ) and Andrew Cashner (5.22 ERA .290 AVG 13 HR allowed) just haven’t done the job.

Wild Cards: What as bad as having the worst pitching in the league, having the lowest fielding percentage in the majors (.978)

Coming Attractions: after a pair vs the slugging 1973 Texas Rangers the O’s have 4 at home vs the 1970 White Sox and then start a road trip that begins in Tampa Bay with a pair against the 2002 Devil Rays. If they are to climb back into the race this will be their chance.


2003 Detroit Tigers:

The math still says that the Tigers have a shot but with pitching only slightly better than Baltimore and Hitting that is meh. It will take a real run of luck for these cats to roar into the playoffs.

Heroes: Dimirti Young has been at the top of his game all year with 26 HR 91 RBI a .341 abg and an OPS of .992 On a bad pitching staff Wil Ledezma has managed to put together a 6-3 record mostly from the bullpen with a few starts for good measure and Chris Spurling has thrown 106 innings all in relief with an era under 4 on a team whose ERA is over 5.

Zeroes: While Omar Infante (.205 0HR 25 RBI in 111 games is an obvious choice if you list the Tigers pitching by ERA their four primary starts are at the bottom with only Jeremy Bonderman with an ERA below six (5.45) but Nate Cornejo (9-11 6.14 ERA .343 avg) Gary Knotts (3-10 6.28 ERA 16 HR allowed) and Mike Maroth (6-16 6.75 ERA 24 HR allowed .327 Avg) have been the gifts that keep giving to opposing batters.

Wild Card: Whatever is to blame for Detroit’s problems it’s not the glovework as the Tigers are tied for the best fielding percentage in the league.

Coming Attractions: If Detroit is going to make a move the best time for them is now with a pair at Chicago followed by 4 at home vs the last place 2005 Kansas City Royals and then back on the road for the 1973 Texas Rangers.


National League East

2009 Washington Nationals

The Nationals have dominated the National League since almost the start beginning with a pair of 4 game win streaks to start and never looking back. The only question left is can they sustain this level of winning when the playoffs come around?

Heroes: Adam Dunn has been a monster a the plate with 36 HR and 105 RBI’s meanwhile Morgan Nyjer has not only hit .335 but has stolen 63 bases and scored 96 runs meanwhile John Lannan’s 13-5 record is driven by a .203 batting avg against and 2 k’s for every walk 114 vs 57 (despite 17 HR)

Zeroes: It’s hard to find zeros on a team that has only lost 37 games but while starter Livan Hernandez has given up just one less HR than Lannan he’s also allowed a .312 avg against and a 6.41 ERA on a team that has outscored their opponents by over 175 runs certainly qualifies. How good is this offense? Their “Zero” in the hitting column Elijah Dukes is hitting .235 with 13 HR 83 RBI and 24 doubles. Even their least productive overall hitter Wil Nieves whose .261 avg 1 HR & 39 RBI in 353 AB are not impressive is hitting .315 with runners in scoring position.

Wild Card: Since acquiring their new manager the Nationals who were already solidly in command have won 12 of their last 14.

Coming Attractions: The Nats welcome the NL West with series vs the 1st place 2012 Houston Astros (2) and the 1973 Padres (4) before heading off to a three city Road stand that will take them to Milwaukee, Florida and Pittsburgh.


1998 Florida Marlins

If you moved the Marlins to any other division in the league they would be leading by anywhere from 3 to 8 games instead they find themselves 10 games back with 38 to play. Can they recover?

Heroes: The Marlins have won with pitching (3.72 team ERA) and Starter Livan Hernandez (12-9 2.68 ERA .140 avg .228 avg against) has been the biggest part of an excellent staff, it helps when your closer Matt Mantei is 14 of 16 in save chances with a 9-3 record and workhourse reliever Vic Darensbourg with a 1.51 ERA in 101 1/3 innings and a 9-2 record in relief. Of course Cliff Floyd’s 18 HR and 92 RBI’s haven’t hurt either.

Zeroes: The only dark spot on the rotation has been Andy Larkin (0-7 in 15 starts with an era of 6.63 almost double the team avg. At the plate Derrek Lee has 14 HR but has only hit .201, .180 with runners in scoring position and managed an OBP of .288 while Gregg Zaun has managed only .212 with 4 HR and 44 RBI.

Wild Cards: If you’re going to beat the Marlins you had better do it in nine innings. They are a perfect 15-0 in extra inning games.

Coming Attractions: Florida finishes a home stand with 2 against the 1973 Padres and a pair against the 2002 Brewers before heading on the road to try and knock the 2012 Astros off their perch at the top of the NL West.


2010 Pittsburgh Pirates

After a horrible start the Pirates have somehow managed to make it back to .500. With only 38 games to go can they rally to make a respectable finish?

Heroes: Brian Giles (.327 20 HR 72 RBI) numbers are nothing to sneeze at but for pure power i’s been Aramis Ramierz with 30 HR (2nd in NL) and 117 RBI (1st) that has really done the job

Zeroes: While the injury bug has not been kind to Bronson Arroyo it’s not a good excuse for an ERA 2 full runs over the team avg and a .310 avg .062 above the rest of the staff. Jack Wilson has been a disappointment with a .221 3 28 triple crown line and an OBP under .300 (.291)

Wildcard: The Pirates have been incredibly average everywhere with identical 29-29 records at home and on the road, but have blown 22 out of 56 save chances.

Coming Attractions: Pittsburgh’s quest to go beyond avg continues with a pair vs 2004 Arizona and then 4 at 2002 Milwaukee before they come home for a nine game set that begins with the 1967 Mets


1967 New York Mets

In a league of 100 loss teams the 1967 Mets have been a loser among losers as with 38 games to go they are a single loss away from being mathematically eliminated. Dare I say Amazing?

Heroes: No question who the hero is on this team Tom Seaver is 15-8 with an ERA of 3.36 and 167 K’s vs only 58 walks he’s also pitched 8 complete games which is seven more than the rest of the rotation combined. Despite playing in 103 games Bob Johnson has only managed 167 at bats but in those limited at bats he’s hit .365 with an OPS of .880

Zeroes: At the plate Jerry Grote has been the lowest of the low lights for the gothamites (.170 1 HR 26 RBI in 317 AB) on the mound despite Jack Fisher’s 2-16 record the biggest villains in the rotation are Don Cardwell (4-12 3.16 avg 5.58 ERA) and Dennis Bennett (4-10 6.26 ERA 19 HR in 100 2/3 innings)

Wild Cards: Polhittingly Correct The Mets bats are careful not to offend anyone. They are not only the last in the league in HR, but last in Runs, Doubles RBI’s OBP Slugging and OPS

Coming Attractions: the 1974 SanDiego Padres get the honor of trying to officially eliminate the Mets at their home but if they fail to do so, the 2004 Arizona Diamondback get four chances to do it in Shea before they head off to Houston to face the 2012 Astros.

Dynasty Players Choice League AL / NL Div C Report

The Latest of our reports from my Dynasty Players Choice league by division. Next week we’ll bring you updates from our all futility league but for now. Division C in the Players Choice League:

AL Division C

2015 Kansas City Royals

After a slow start the Royals not only have 1st place in the AL Division C but the best record in the American league. Can their one run heroics (7-3) in one run games continue to keep them on top?

Heroes: It’s hard to pick one hero on this team but but Kendrys Morales is a great candidate. with his team leading .315 avg. 15 RBI while hitting .364 with runners in scoring position. On the Mound Johnny Cueto is 4-0 with a team leading 43 2/3 innings 2 complete games and a WHIP of only 1.17. While Wade Davis is 4-4 in save chances twice as many k’s as BB and has yet to give up an earned run.

Zeroes: Salvador Perez is a reluctant choice for a zero. His .214 avg is last on the team and 17K’s in 84 AB is a lot but he’s driven in 9 runs (.333 with 2 outs & RISP) and has caught 2 of 7 who have tried to steal off him. However there is no doubt about Starters Danny Duffy (1-3) .398 avg against 8.35 ERA and Jeremy Guthrie (0-2 .410 avg against 12.00 ERA) their seven starts are the reason this team is not a lot farther ahead.

Wildcard: Ben Zobrist was hitting .455 with runners in scoring position and .333 with 2 outs and runners in scoring position with 5 HR in only 13 games before going on the DL. Now that he’s back a team expect the teams -2 Run differential to change dramatically, particularly against opponents with a combined 28-33 record.

Coming attractions: A quick 3 game homestand vs the 2009 Yankees is followed by a six game road trip to opposite ends of the Country against the 1988 A’s in Oakland and then the 2013 Redsox in Boston.


1924 Washington Senators

A just over .500 record might be good enough and even stats might be a big improvement over last seasons epic 4-21 finish to the season but if they expect to do better than fighting for the last playoff spot they will have to surge.

Heroes: Roger Peckinpaugh’s 3 HR is more than all he hit last year. Combine that with a dozen RBI, a dozen walks and the team lead in runs despite batting 6-9th and he’s looking good. Tommy Taylor might be a part time player but he’s hitting .297 and shares the league lead in triples with teammate Sam Rice with 4. On the Mound George Mogridge is 4th League ERA (2.38) 2nd in wins (4) 3rd in avg against (.216) and is the reason why the Senators are only 1 1/2 out.

Zeroes: Curly Ogden has been nothing short of disaster both as a starter and a reliever 0-3 8.27 ERA Seven walks and 4 HR allowed vs only one strikeout. Bucky Harris has scored 13 runs but is batting only .234 with a .237 slugging percentage and with .077 avg when leading off isn’t getting the table set. Not that it would matter for Joe Judge whose slump which started at the end of last season keeping him from 100 RBI’s continues. He has only 5 RBI a .237 avg and an anemic .111 avg with runners in scoring position and is hitless with runners in scoring position with 2 outs.

Wild Card: Walter Johnson has been a workhorse 3rd in inning pitched in the league holding batters to a .217 avg (4th) & a WHIP of 1.18 (6th) in the lead while hitting .364 with 1 HR and 4 RBI’s off the bench but only has a only a 3-3 record thanks to a 3.61 ERA and six homers. Will he settle down or will the use of him on 3 days rest mean an average Johnson.

Coming Attractions: The Senators finish a home stand vs the 2009 Yankees, Fly off to Oakland to face the 1998 A’s for a series before beginning a long 21 game homestand staring against the 2013 Redsox.


2009 New York Yankees

After losing six of their first 8 the Bronx Bombers are only a game under five hundred winning six of their last 8. Are they poised to make their move or are the roadblocks ahead too big?

Heroes: Derek Jeter’s .337 avg coupled with his team lead in hits high RBI & runs scored totals coupled with error less play at short are huge although perhaps not as huge as Mark Teixeira’s league lead in HR and 8th spot in the RBI race. Meanwhile on a Pitching staff that has been avg or worse reliever Alfredo Aceves WHIP of 1.09 and 2.87 ERA is a breath of fresh air.

Zeroes: Mariano Rivera‘s four blown saves vs 3 saves and ERA over 5 (5.52) is a big reason why the Yanks are under .500 but with AM Burnett (2-2 6.39 ERA .310 avg against) Andy Pettitte (0-3 6.67 ERA .339 avg against) and Joba Chamberlain (0-2 7.45 ERA .316 avg against) putting up these kind of numbers over 13 starts it’s a wonder there they are only a game under .500. of course Jorge Posada .130 avg and single HR coupled with 6 bases stolen against and two errors doesn’t help much either.

Wildcards: The Yanks are 7-5 in games outside the division but with an unbalanced schedule that can be fatal, however they are a perfect 2-0 in extras.

Coming Attractions: The Yanks get a chance to climb back in the race with a 12 game road trip that starts with a pair of division rivals ahead of them as it takes them to Washington to face the 1924 Senators and the 1st place 2015 Royals before heading off to Chicago to face the 2005 White Sox and Toronto for the 1993 BlueJays


2002 Anaheim Angles

The Angels are one of two teams still without a full time manager and it shows. With both the worst record in the league and the worst run differential is it a lost season or can the Halos turn it around.

Heroes: David Eckstein’s .327 avg and .412 OB is a big reason why he leads the teams in runs and a .333 avg with runners on isn’t bad either (although those five errors haven’t helped) much. On the pitching side Brendan Donnelly has been spectacular in relief with a 3-0 record and a WHIP of 0.91 in 6 games has been one of the few reasons to cheer.

Zeroes: Oh the Agony of choice on this team for this dishonor but let’s begin with starters Kevin Appier (1-4 8.77 ERA .342 avg against ) and Jon Lackey ( 0-1 8.71 ERA only 10 1/3 innings in 3 starts) who haven’t done the job on the mound, while Ben Molina’s 3 errors behind the plate while batting .171 at it have been disastrous.

Wild Card: The lack of a full time manager makes things harder but not as hard as Left handed pitching. The team is 1-9 against southpaws.

Coming Attractions: A 9 game road trip might just be the thing to get their minds off their troubles. They’ll start in Chicago to face the 2004 White Sox head north to Detroit for the 1968 Tigers and then to Cleveland against the defending AL champs the 1954 Indians.


NL Div C

2016 Chicago Cubs

With a team Tied for the 2nd best record in the league and in first place it would seem like smooth sailing for the Cubs however when despite all this you share 1st with another team it looks like this season is going to be a fight from 1st to last.

Heroes: On a Team that’s only batting .232 Dexter Fowler’s .311 avg 2 HR 11 RBI and four triples (2nd in the league) stands out. But with a team ERA of .263 there are a bunch of candidates, so we’ll name John Lackey (3-0 .182 avg 1.98 ERA) and Jon Lester (2-0 2.10 ERA and 31 K vs 11 walks to start) with Aroldis Chapman (1-0 2 sv 22k vs 3 BB and no runs allowed in 11 1/3 ) leads the way.

Zeroes: the only dark spot in the rotation has been Kyle Hendricks with a 4.15 ERA and a 2-3 Record and a fielding percentage of .667. Javier Baez .191 avg and .242 OB is the worst of a bad lot

Wild Cards Despite the 2nd best record in the league the Cubs OBS of .666 is the 2nd worst. Jake Arrieta has been the teams hard luck loser at 1-4 with a 2.06 ERA but he’s had even harder luck in his two away starts with an 0-2 record despite a 1.72 ERA and 21k vs 5 walks.

Coming Attractions: the Cubs put their incredible ERA to the test in Cincinnati against the 1975 Big Red Machine before coming home to face power hitting 2019 Nationals and then Hank Aaron’s 1957 Braves.


1962 San Francisco Giants

The defending division champs want another chance that the Pennant but despite the 2nd best record in game those pesky Cubs won’t give in and Philly is even in the loss column. Can they make some distance.

Heroes: Willie McCovey has been pounding the ball with a .397 avg 7 HR and 22 RBI’s and Felipe Alou at .375 6 HR and 24 RBI is right behind. While on the mound Juan Marichal (3-1 1.93 ERA in six starts) leads the way.

Zeroes: Don Larson two blown saves in two chances are no accident with hitters batting .320 vs him and and a 9.00 ERA. While Bobby Bolin’s ERA is a full run better (7.85) five HR in 18.1 innings means trouble but so does Jose Pagan .170 avg with but a single dinger

Wild Cards: The Giants have feasted on right handers with a 12-5 record and have really shined in day games at 6-2.

Coming Attractions: It’s a nasty road Trip for the Giants: with three in Philly vs the 2008 Phillies followed by a trip to Brooklyn for the 1955 Dodgers and before finishing back in their old stomping ground of New York against the 1986 Mets.


2008 Philadelphia Phillies

Sitting even in the loss column with both the Giants and Cubs The Phillies just on burst away from heading right to the top.

Heroes: Shane Victorino has been an RBI machine driving in 19 with a .326 avg while also scoring a team leading 14. Closer Brad Lidge has been the warrior with 6 saves in 7 chances, a 1.35 ERA and 17k’s in 13 1/3 innings over 13 games. In 19 games Geoff Jenkins is hitting .418 with 2 homers and 12 RBI’s

Zeroes: Kyle Kendrick only managed 14.2 innings in four starts with a 10.43 ERA and 11 walks vs 5 k’s. Rudy Seanez ERA is almost 5 runs better at 5.82 but he’s 0-3 with a blown save in 13 games of unimpressive relief.

Wild Cards: Ryan Howard is only hitting .152 but with 12 hits but with those 12 hits he’s managed 5 HR and 9 RBI while scoring 13 runs.

Coming Attractions: It’s 3 on the road with the 2005 Astros before heading home with a shot at the 1962 San Francisco Giants before heading on the road again first to face the 1975 Cincinnati Reds and the 2019 Washington Nationals.


2005 Houston Astros

A 9-12 start isn’t a disaster this early in the season but with the three teams ahead all in single digits for losses there are a lot of people to pass to get back in this race.

Heroes: Orlando Palmeiro is hitting .362 over 18 games while Morgan Ensberg has managed five homers and 14 RBI’s and an .885 OPS to lead the team in all three categories. Willy Travers 24 hits leads the team and he has 9 SB to go along with it. Roger Clemens has an 1.88 ERA with three complete games and three wins in six starts.

Zeroes: Andy Pettitte’s 4.66 ERA doesn’t sound bad but on a team with an ERA of 3.03 it’s been good for a 0-4 record thanks to six HR allowed, a full half the amount of the entire staff. Meanwhile Brad Lidge has been the opposite of his Philadelphia twin blowing 2 of 3 save chances with a team worst 4.82 ERA. Brad Ausmus .164 avg is the worst on a bad team of those who qualify.

Wild Cards: The good news is the Astros are holding their opponents to a .219 avg with only 9 HR over 21 games. The bad news is they’re only batting .215 with 9 HR themselves.

Coming Attractions: It’s three games at home vs the 2008 Phillies then it’s on the road to NYC 1st to Brooklyn vs the 1955 Dodgers, and then to Shea for the 1998 Mets then it’s south to Florida for 3 vs the 1997 Marlins

Sunday Morning Under the Fedora Media vs Brady, Kyrie addition by subtraction, Tampa Bay Lightning not striking twice, Betts as Ruth Redux and Games on paper vs games on paper

Are we still after last year seeing sports casters saying that even if the New England Patriots win against the hapless Dolphins today that the only question in the playoffs is: “Do the Patriots lose to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs at home or in Kansas city?”

Now don’t get me wrong, Kansas City is a good team and as demonstrated earlier in the year they are quite capable of beating any team including the Patriots, but I can’t think of anything that is more likely to motivate an already great Patriots defense and Tom Brady back into “Deflategate revenge tour” mode than stuff like this.


It’s still very early in the season but I’d like to point out that last year the Brooklyn Nets finished the year at 42-40 with a .512 winning percentage without Kyrie Irving as the 6th seed while the Boston Celtics finished at 49-33 with a .598 winning percentage as the 5th seed in the east with Kyrie irving.

This year Irving left the Celtics and the team is currently the #3 seed at 22-8 with a .733 winning percentage and even with the #2 Miami Heat in the Loss Column. Irving signed with the nets who are currently 16-15 with a .516 winning percentage and 7th seeded in the conference, but more importantly is 12-8 with a .600 winning percentage since an injury sidelined Irving after a 4-7 start.

This man is the anti-Brady


Last year in the NHL during the Regular Season the Tampa Bay Lightning simply dominated the league in a way we hadn’t seen in years until the playoffs came around. I remember driving home after game one listening to sports radio as they declared that despite that loss Columbus had no chance right up until they finished the lightning off.

It’s a year later and the team that managed 128 points, a solid 20 above every other is now currently at 42 points five points behind the last wild card team. Now there are still 46 games to go but it’s an important reminder that you have to take advantage of any opportunity you have because you just might not get another chance.


Speaking of not getting another chance as the year ends and the 2020 season draws near we are still getting “the trade or don’t trade Mookie Betts” debate in Boston.

It’s been a pretty quiet off season for the Red Sox with three players from last world series win (Brock Holt, Mitch Moreland, Rick Porcello ) currently testing free agency and Catcher Sandy Leon traded to Cleveland for minor league pitcher Adenys Bautista. As of today their current offensive depth chart looks like this (via redsox.com):

With the exception of Pedroia this is pretty much the Red Sox offence that tore up the league last year but was betrayed by injuries in the rotation and weakness in the bullpen. Or to put it another way, this team is one closer and perhaps one healthy rotation away from fielding a team more than capable of dominating the American league with a monster offense, a zipper outfield and a rotation as good as any other in baseball.

So to those who say forget 2020 and trade Mookie let me remind all these people who have forgotten the lean times of a little history.

Exactly 100 years ago another Red Sox had an off season at 66-71-1 (one game called after 10 innings never made up) where they had dropped to sixth a year after winning the world series. They decided to get rid of their star right fielder, who could also pitch a bit, before the start of their next season selling him for a price higher than the entire payroll of the the previous year’s team. More money than the combined salaries of the top 8 players in the league.

That team had won five World series in the 20th century at that point, they would not win another.

Now Mookie Betts is no Babe Ruth but the point of the story is when you have a chance to win a World Series take it, because it might be another 86 years before you win another.


Finally as I mentioned before the old table top face to face fantasy baseball league that I started 32 years ago (the year before I got married) was revived this year. Going into Friday I had a record of 8-4 having won my 1st 4 series with a pair of series coming up against two relative newcomers with one season of experience between them both with losing records.

Over the next two days I lost 4-6 including a 9th inning blown save by Kimbrel, a 14th inning marathon, and had a team with Mookie Betts batting 1st and Anthony Rendon hitting 3rd shut out for the final 20 innings of the last two games against a sixteen year old kid who was playing in his 1st baseball simulation league 50 years after I had gotten my 1st baseball simulation game, Milton Bradley baseball for Christmas in 1969 (great game btw you can get it on eBay here) at the ripe old age of six.

This demonstrates a sports rule that extends even to games on paper. No matter what the betting line or the prognosticators say there is a reason why you actually play the games.

Sable/Gerbl Face to Face Schedule Update Umpire crews added

NOTE:  Any Divisional or playoff tiebreaker is played on the 1st day unless there is a make-up game scheduled on that day that could affect the playoff picture.  In that case said makeup game is played on day one as a day game and any tiebreaker is played on day two also as a day game.

Rainout rules.

A Rainout in game one of a series is played as a day/night double header in game 2. (day game)

A Rainout in game 2 is replayed as a day / night double headers on day 3 (Night game)

If there is an off day after game 3 a rainout on day three is played on the travel day. (Day game) This is ALWAYS the 1st choice

If there is no travel day after the series and there is another series between the same teams at the same location then the game will be made up as a day-night double header during 1st game of the next series at that location (Day game)

If there is no travel day after the series and there is

  • 1. another series between the same teams at a different location
  • AND
  • 2.. there is a travel day before or after that series

Then this game is played on that travel day It is a night game if played before the series and a day game if played after.

If there is no travel day after the series and

  • There are no further games between the opponents
  • OR
  • There is a series at a different location
  • AND
  • There is no travel day before or after that series

The game is made up at the 1st open day where neither team has no game scheduled. The game is a day game as it’s assumed at least one team will need to travel to the location of the game and one or both teams may need to travel to the location of their next game.

In all cases but the final one the game can be either played at once or during a regularly scheduled series with the opponent. If this final situation is the case and the players are playing on an off day when they are scheduled to play different opponents that week the players should do one of these three things:

  1. Once they finish their games with their scheduled opponents stay and stay and play the make up game,
  2. Arrive at Zeda an hour or so early and play the make up game then play their scheduled opponent at the normal time. If both the players and the scheduled opponents can stay late then the make up game can start at the normal time.
  3. Find a mutually agreeable time during the two week span between the scheduled series to play the game either at Zedas or at That’s Entertainment or at either players house.

Rainouts during the playoffs

A rainout on the tiebreaker is played the next day.

A rainout during the 1st two games of a playoff series is played on the travel day. It is a day game.

A rainout during the next two games of a playoff series is played on the travel day if necessary if game 3 is rained out and game four produces a winner then obviously game three does not have to be made up. it is a day game.

A rainout during game five of a playoff game is played on the 1st off day. It is a night game.

World Series Rainouts

A Rainout during game 1 or two is played on the travel day as a day game

A Rainout during games 3-5 is played on the travel game, it is a day game unless it is an elimination game, then it is a night game.

A rainout of games six or seven (or both) are played after day seven as night games.
