1.2017 Tommy Pham STL OF No card. 306/411/520 MVP-11. In 2017, Pham became the first Cardinals batter since 1900 to record at least a .300 BA 20 HRs 20 2Bs and 20 SBs in the same season. Overcame a ton to make it to MLB. One of the most intense players from any era. A key component of the 2019 Rays resurgence. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/92648/2017/1/2017

4. 1883 Charlie Bennett DTN Bats R -- .305/.350/.474 OPS+ 151 34 doubles in 371 abs -- one of the great deadball catchers (also eligible at 2B and OF), inventor of the first chest protector, considered to be one of the best defensive players of his era, leading the league in fielding percentage for catchers seven times. Lost his legs in an accident in 1894; the Tigers named their new stadium Bennett Park in his honor.

12. 2010 Angel Pagan NYM OF - AA stealing, 1 defensively at all 3 outfield spots (with a -2 arm), switch hitter and an A bunter. 3 game injury risk. Would make a great bench player in high cap leagues and a reliable bottom of the order guy in small cap. Also, the Mets don't have a 1 at LF or RF in the set. https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/863/2010/1/3010

17. 1965 Sonny Siebert, RHSP, Indians, 2L 16-8 2.43 0.981. Led A.L. with 4.15 SO/BB ratio. Career bests in WHIP, BB9, SO9. 2nd career best in ERA, H9. Won 140 career games, with a .551 WIN% pitching for some bad teams. Just 1 lousy ATG card that is never used and doesn't do Siebert's career justice.

22. 1975 John Montefusco - led league in K/9 at 7.9, 10 CG 2.88 ERA and 215 K's in 243 IP - much better than his current card, would be a good 4th or 5th starter

Led AL in RBI in 1955, 1958 & 1959 finishing ahead of Colavito, Mantle, Kaline, Williams, Maris, Doby, Berra & Sievers. AL MVP. Played all 154 games for the Red Sox, so likely bullet proof. Absolutely mashes lefties and more than holds his own vs. righties. This card would help the Post War BoSox in franchise leagues.

30. 1898 Kid Nichols 31-12 2.13 ERA. Led league with a .221 OAV, .272 OOB, and a WHIP of 1.03. Also led in Games pitched, Wins, and saves. Third straight 30 win season. Best player in the NL for third year in a row. Surely would have won 400 games, but left the majors for two seasons before returning in 1904 to pitch for the lowly Cardinals.

31. 1915 Ernie Shore, Boston Red Sox, 19-8, 1.64 ERA. Shore was part of the great 19teens Red Sox dynasty, on the multiple World Series-winning pitching staff along with Babe Ruth, Smoky Joe Wood, and Dutch B. Leonard.

Near career highs in BA, 2B, HR, BB. 2nd in MVP voting. Strike shortened, pitching dominated 1972 was Rudi's best season, despite playing in cavernous Oakland Coliseum. Rudi was a major cog in 3 straight A's world champion teams. Rudi will help A's expansion franchise league teams prior to 1979. 1972 is a big card upgrade for Rudi.

45. 1983 Bob Horner, Braves. One of his best seasons in OB and power... .303 .383 .528 better on base vs righties .388, but more power vs lefties, .590. As usual injuries will be a problem... he will have a 15 gm injury chance. But this will be a big improvement on his only card. (Horner has 2 cards in ATG).

No one had an answer for this.


What's the deal with Walter French?

PostSat Sep 05, 2020 9:02 pm
He hit only 1 homerun but is N and has HR chances on both sides of his card. (He only hit 2 in his career.)
https://365.strat-o-matic.com/player/34013/1929/1/292


Perhaps that's a question better sent to Strat. The card viewer shows French with the HR on both sides. Not sure this has much significance.

Y'know, I guess I should expect this, but Mark Ellis out polling Charlie Neal just rankles me! I know Neal has missed the cut before, but he was a gold glove, and is only a 3 gm injury risk with some speed and a bit of pop. Don't get me wrong, I like Ellis, good hitter, good fielder (not as good as Neal) and helps the Oakland A's (while Neal is just another Dodger) also Ellis is a 15 game injury risk. I just want some love for Charlie, he was involved in the integration of the game, he was the first player to drive in a run for the expansion Mets, and he was a hero in the '59 world series! Let's vote him in the set!

Yes, Tully's stats look better than some pitchers he trails in the voting, like Jenkins and Waddell, two cards that don't appear quite as good as the cards we have for those guys now. I agree Sparks could use an upgrade.

No love for Charlie Morton? Too bad he didn't pitch in the 1800s or he would surely get in. In fact Bauer and the other modern day pitchers will not make the cut either. You guys really know how to muck this up.

This game will be dead in a few years when all the boomers die off. People under 50 want star players they have heard of not guys who played in the 1800's.

A lot of those guys from the 1800s would not make the best high school teams of today.

Let's see, voting as of now:
One player from 1800s
4 deadball
4 PreWar
3 PostWar
13 Expansion (over half the 25 spots)

And you're complaining about....checks notes....1800s players getting in instead of expansion players.
Reading (and math). It's fundamental.

No love for Charlie Morton? Charlie Morton? No offence to Charlie Morton but he's barely a .500 career pitcher. That's the problem with Strat, we continue to reward a player with a year that is twice his best ever. Kid Nichols on the other hand is a Hall of Famer who is underrepresented. Granted that 1898 is his best year, but that's what Strat has done with many HOF's. By the way, Nichols out pitched Cy Young in the 1890's as they came up the same time. I know we all have our own reasons for nominating players (Franchise,Era,League, or something else) and I have no argument with that. If you want an add Go For It! As far as this game dying off, "The one constant through all the years has been baseball. ---"(Terrence Mann) That's why we love it.

Let’s discuss dating sites. I am sure all of internet users know what dating site is and tried it at least once. I looking for platforms similar to https://mylistcrawler.com/listcrawler-baltimore-online. If you know some local sites in Baltimore, that would be even better. Possibly, you know some forums in the area where people get acquainted for further communication and offline meetings.
