1969 League Players of the Week. Jerry Koosman A’s AL Bob Humphries Mets NL

Jerry Koosman is the AL player of the week for his key 4 hit 9 inning game vs LA for his 2nd win putting his A’s a mere half game out of first place in the AL west.

Bob Humphreys is the NL player of the week for coming in for an injured Chuck Dobson. Going into the game he had no appearance longer than 2/3 of an inning with batters hitting .500 against him and a WHIP of 2.00. He threw 5 2/3 innings of shutout ball facing 17 hitters and giving up but a single hit to earn his 1st win of the season.

1969 Draft League Players of the Week: AL Luis Tiant Twins, NL Jim Palmer Giants

Here are the winners of the player of the week award in the Dynasty 1969 Draft League as voted on by me.

American League Luis Tiant Twins

El Tiante did not get a win or a save but was key to the Twins 5-2 victory against division rival Seattle. In the Top of the 2nd Tiant came in to replace an injured Gary Peters who had come in to replace starter Gene Brabender who came out with a stiff shoulder in the 1st. In the 3rd inning walks leader Mike Fiore walked as did Dick McAuliffe. Hits leader Pete Rose singled and it looked like the Twins 2-1 lead would be short lived with RBI Leader Ed Kirpatrick, Tommy Harper and Tommie Agee due up. and but a ground ball needed to tie the game. It was not to be Tiant would strike out Kirpatrick looking and Harper and Agee swinging the highlight of 5 2/3 innings of 2 hit 9 K shutout ball

How Tiant doesn’t get the win is beyond me

National League Jim Palmer Giants

There is nothing more painful for a team than to start the season with a long losing streak and the San Francisco Giants had. Having lost their first eight and their previous game on a 2-1 heartbreaker 1st round Jim Palmer took is 0-1 record the mound for the 0-8 Giants vs the 5-3 Cardinals Jim Bunning who had won his 1st start.

With two outs in the top of the seventh Palmer had given up a solo shot to Clete Boyer tying the game. Now in the bottom of the inning he came to bat with one out and Jose Cardinial who had doubled on 2nd. Mgr Guy Desrosiers let Palmer bat and he drove a 2-2 fastball into the gap in left center giving the Giants the lead and after advancing to 3rd on a grounder scored on a single by Sandy Alomar Sr.

He would end the game retiring the next six Cardinals striking out 3 to complete the game and consign San Francisco’s losing streak to history.

Palmer hutting only .200 but he made that hit count!

Note that franchise owners have the right to change their teams names.

We Interrupt this blog to post Rules for my new 1969 Dynasty Draft League UPDATE Early Waivers

I’m near the point of starting the 1969 season draft league, 16 teams are raring to go. Finished the schedule a few minutes ago and for the sake of the players here are some rules that you will want to know before we start.

The Draft:

The draft will consist of each team picking in turn a single player from the players in the draft pool. When each team has picked that will be considered a “round”

In our initial season the draft will consist of 34 rounds or until at the start of a round there are less players to be drafted then teams in the draft.

In subsequent seasons the draft will consist of as many rounds as needed to fill a 35 man roster on all teams or until there are no more players to draft.

In the initial season draft order will be determined by a dice roll 000-999 999 being high. Teams will draft in descending order. Highest roll drafting first.

In subsequent seasons draft order will depend on a team’s finish. The world series winner will draft last followed by the runner up, followed by the playoff teams based on deep they get in the playoffs & their record. followed by the rest of the league based on record. if there is a tie in a record a die roll will break it.

A team may trade any of their first five picks to another team up until the trade deadline., A team that holds another teams draft pick will make that pick based on said team’s finish.

Only picks for the next upcoming season are tradable. IE :Washington can’t trade their 1970 & 1973 draft picks for Rod Carew, but if they acquired Cincy’s 1st round pick for 1970 they could trade both of those for Rod.

I will post draft choices at my blog and update the post as players are picked thus the rosters will be out there. Once a team has picked I will notify the next team to prepare to pick.

I strongly suggest everyone start examine the 1969 cards, maybe play a series or two to become familiar with them.

Waivers



If there are any players still available after the draft said players will be the wavers pool.

Teams will be able to make Wavers picks starting in week 6. Wavers will end at the time of the September Callups

To make a pick a team must have room on its 35 man roster. If such room doesn’t exist a team must wave a player to make room for a potential pick.

Players on the DL do not count toward that 35 man roster.

If a team is already at 35 players when a player on the DL become eligible to be activated from the DL players the team must release a player to make room, said player will be eligible to be picked from wavers the following week.

Only one wavers pick allowed per week.

UPDATE EARLY WAVERS:

EARLY WAIVERS:  Regular waivers begins week 6 of the season under the written rules but teams may qualify for “early waivers”.  A team qualifies for early waivers by forgoing the rest of their remaining draft picks under the following schedule:

  • A team that forgoes all draft picks from round 30 on qualifies for early waivers after their first series
  • A team that forgoes all draft picks from round 31 on (4 picks) qualifies for early waivers after week 1 (2 series) 
  • A team that forgoes all draft picks from round 32 on (3 picks) qualifies for early waiver after week 2 (4 series)
  • A team that forgoes all draft picks from round 33 on (2 picks) qualifies for early waivers after week 3 (6 series)
  • A team that forgoes it’s final draft pick (round 34) qualifies for early waivers after week 4 (8 series)

Any team that picks through round 34 does not qualify for early waiver ad must wait till after week 5 to qualify for waivers picks

The order for early waivers shall be based on the record of the teams that qualify, ties will be broken based on draft order


Example Stl & Bal both qualify for early waivers after their 1st series and both have records of 1-2  because in round 30 StL was scheduled to pick  before balt StL would pick first in early waivers that week.  However if both have 3-3 records after week one Baltimore would pick ahead of them in early waivers that week because in week 31 Baltimore would have picked first

Because teams in early waivers will have rosters below 35 men they will not have to release any players from their roster when making waivers picks



Trades



After week 5 Trading will be allowed until the Trade deadline which will be the time of the September callups.

A player may trade either a player on his current 35 man roster or any of his first 5 draft picks for the following season, or any draft picks he has previously acquired to any other team.

A team that acquires a number of player that would put his roster over 35 must release sufficient players to make the 35 man roster.

Because of the nature of the game a “trade rationale” must be submitted along with the trade to the office of the commissioner and said trade must be approved. For example a team that is out of it might trade a star for draft picks for the following season or for a player who has a poor card this year but will have a good one next year, or contrarywise a player might give up someone who will have a strong card in 70 if they need a bat or pitcher to put them over the top.

Remember a trade is not completed until the Comish moves the player in the system from one team to the other.

If you are planning to leave this league please don’t do the whole fire sale thing as it will make it difficult for the person who takes your team over.


The DL

Players on the DL may not be traded or released until they come off the DL

If a team has players on the DL on the last day of the season that team said players will, after the final game of the season immediately count toward the 35 man roster and said team must immediately release sufficient players to get down to 35.

Replacements:

Real life always takes precedence over games and on occasion players will miss games or might be in a situation where they have to leave the league either temporarily or permanently

If a player is unable to play a series at the allotted date and time he is encouraged to contact his opponent & reschedule. If it is not possible to reschedule said player should put his team on auto for that series so his opponent can get the games in so as not to force an autoplay with the system taking both teams.

If gametime comes and your opponent is not there you are encouraged to give him 5 or 10 minutes to show up. If he does not show up or contact you by the 2nd 5 min wait period it is acceptable for you to being play

If due to illness or some other cause a player has to leave the league for a few weeks he is encouraged to find a replacement player to take over on a temp basis, if that is not possible he should put the team on autoplay until such time as he recovers.

If a player has to permanently leave the league and does not provide a replacement his team will go on autoplay and I will attempt to find a replacement manager.

Expansion Draft (4 team minimum)

Players who inquire about the league during the season will be put on a wait list and be considered 1st in line to take any team if someone quits. If at the end of any season or up to two weeks before a draft we have 4 players waiting to join then we will allow an expansion draft to let then in before draft day.

Any expansion draft will be based on the 35 man rosters before teams name their protected players. New rookies for the upcoming season are not included in any expansion draft. Each expansion team may draft 8 players as a base.

Teams are able to protect 5 players from their 35 man roster. Once a team picks a player from their team an additional five players may be protected. If a 2nd player is taken an additional 10 players may be protected. Once a 3rd player is taken no further players may be drafted from said team.

In addition to the expansion draft. Once the protected rosters are released the expansion teams may each take an additional player from the draft pool whose card is from their franchise. IE if the Boston Redsox are an expansion draft team and Bill Lee is available in the draft the Sox may pick him as their protected player before the regular draft begins. If no player from their roster is in the draft then they are out of luck.

If I think of anything I forgot I’ll put it here.

1969 Draft League updated Team list

We now have 15 teams (not counting myself) taken for the 1969 Draft league. Here are the teams taken listed with the player they have decided to protect in the draft:

Team SelectedDraft Dice RollPlayer withheld from DraftComments
Oakland A’s465OF Reggie JacksonLots of good choices but Reggieball it is
Chicago White Sox662
LHSP Tommy JohnA good long term choice which
means Melton & Aparicio are available
Baltimore Orioles6911B Boog PowellBoog is good but I really expected one
Of the Robinson boys or Palmer
Atlanta Braves432OF Hank AaronAaron is an obvious pick but that means
Phil Niekro will go in the 1st round
Cincinnati Reds238
C Johnny BenchAnother team with too many good choices
Rose and Perez come immediately to mind
Los Angeles Dodgers840RHSP Don SuttonThe Dodgers didn’t have a lot of Wow
to pick from but Sutton is good
Montreal Expos742
OF Rusty StaubLe Grande Orange was the obvious choice
New York Mets611RHSP Tom SeaverHard to pass up Koosman, McGraw & Ryan
but not if the alternative is Tom Terrific
Pittsburgh Pirates396OF Roberto Clemente1st to 3rd on a single to right vs Pittsburgh
will be an adventure.
St Louis Cardinals139RHSP Bob GibsonAgain a lot of good choices but how does
one pass on Gibson?
San Francisco Giants820OF Bobby BondsMcCovey had a big year & Mays is
still Mays but Bonds was really something
New York Yankees891SP Fritz PetersonWould have never guessed this pick in
a million years
Cleveland Indians823LHSP Sam McDowellSudden Sam is still at his peak and will
make others miserable every 5th day
Washington Senators406SS Ed BrinkmanBrinkman is no Frank Howard but he’s a
solid defensive SS & hit a little in 69
Minnesota Twins0362B Rod CarewIt would take a Rod Carew to make anyone
Pass on Harmon Killebrew
Seattle Pilots6813B Tommy HarperHarper is likely the only player on the Pilots
that might go anywhere in the 1st 5 rounds

I took the Seattle Pilots on a temp basis to allow me to access the system but I’d really like the RedSox but I’ll hold off to allow any new player to get them. If I keep the Pilots my guy will be Tommy Harper who is the best of the lot but that means that Brooks is off my draft table

16 is a perfect number for scheduling but if you want in feel free to jump in and we’ll shoot for 20

The Agony of Choice Dynasty Protected Player Edition

My Dynasty face to face 2019 face to face league season is over as my Washington Nationals fell to St. Louis in the wild card game 8-5.

So now comes the decision making time. As the Wild Card team that lost the play-in game I am allowed to retain 10 players on my roster who are not subject to next years draft.

That number does not include any new rookies for the Washington Nationals ( my franchise) who have their 1st card this year. All of those players are protected automatically although I do have the right to release them to make room on my 35 man roster or if they are fringe players (% players or limited AB vs LH or RH) can be put on my five man AAA roster)

Any man who was on my roster last year who is a fringe player (as described above) can be retained even if they can’t be used in play. Any player who did not have a card last year due to injury or the COVID opt out who is currently on my roster CAN be retained but again I would have to commit a roster spot to them.

This season is a tad odd in one respoect. Because of the COVID the league was put on hold for a while so we will be starting our 2020 season at a point were we are deep into the actual 2021 season so we know if a player is having a good (or bad) year which will of course affect our decision to keep players.

As of this moment here are the players that will absolutely make my protected list:

Abreu 1b: Clutch Rating Incredible power both sides improved range over the previous season and having a strong year for a team heading to the playoffs

Othani: DH While he had a bad card last year his stats this year plus the potential of filling both a pitching and a batting slot next season demands I keep him here.

Lindor SS While he is having a disappointing season this year his numbers last year combined with excellent defense ratings at a key position guarantee his roster spot

Scherzer RHSP Jam Rating While his 2020 season was below avg he’s still better than a lot out there combine this with a jam rating and a strong 2021 and Scherzer makes the team

Molina C (H & R rating) A -3 arm behind the plate forgives a lot of sins among pitchers combine that with a H & R rating and you’ve got a key position covered.

Hand LHRP Hand led the league in saves last year with a 7-1 K-BB ratio and no HR’s given up he’s a keeper without a jam+ rating which he had the year before.

Rendon 3B Clutch rating: Rendon has a big dropoff over his Washington numbers and led the AL in double plays last year but his defense is still strong and that clutch rating still makes him worth a spot.

Devers 3B: Clutch rating With Rendon at 3B & Devers defense not existent one might think he was worth risking in the draft but his powerful bat at DH will complement Abreu & Rendon in a lineup and if Rendon’s decline continues he might even get the starting job next year.

That leaves me two spots left and here are the players who are fighting for them:

Whit Merrifield 2B. While is 2019 states particularly on defense are down his 2020 starts are still pretty good. the real question is: Do I want to spend a draft pick on a second baseman or would I rather keep Merrifield and save the pick for someone else.

Eddie Rosario OF Rosario was one of the heroes of the team last season after the Mookie Betts trade and it was his bat that put the team into the playoffs. His bat is not as impressive this year and the clutch rating is gone but he still has plenty of pop to play with.

Edwin Diaz RHRP Diaz is a pretty solid reliver but not at Hand’s level. Again his stats were down from 2018 but this year they are back up and running.

Eric Hosmer 1b: Clutch rating. Hosmer as always has solid numbers and if it wasn’t for Abreu he would likely have a spot sewn up. He certainly could make a RH DH to platoon with Devers

Javier Baez SS Baez was my #1 pick last season but while is defense shines his power numbers are down for 2020 even if they have recovered in 2021. He is unlikely to take the SS spot from Lindor in 2020 but if kept might be the man in 2021, but is that worth a roster spot.

Anthony Rizzo 1B A mainstay of my team, Abreu’s improved range means he has no chance to start and the degree of depth at 1st makes keeping him a luxury.

Deshields OF: Speed, defense and the ability to bunt (a rare gift these days) are all in his favor but I’m almost certainly going to find a better outfield in the draft even as last as the 7th or 8th round.

Longshots include Josh Reddick, Sergio Romo Adam Plutko and Wade Miley

I’ve got several weeks to make up my mind as to who to keep and who to toss. If you have any suggestions I’ll be happy to entertain them.= in comments.

If you are interested in taking over the management of any of the online leagues teams contact me in comments.

As a bonus here are the standings of our face to face draft league which first began playing in 1987 in Fitchburg Massachusetts. We have two divisions with 4 teams each playing a 60 game season every other Saturday at Zeda’s Pizza in Fitchburg MA. The individual leagues are named for deceased members of the league. Five teams make the playoffs, the best record gets home field throughout and 2nd best record of the division leaders gets a home series against the best non-division winner while the final two teams play a one game playin for the right to face the best division winner in the playoffs.

New players are always welcome
