Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 6-11-2019

Philadelphia Evening Ledger, June 11, 1919:

The strangest double play seen around here came off in the third. Luderus was on first. Cravath lifted a foul that [Cubs catcher Bill] Killefer nabbed. With the catch Luderus put on full steam for second. Killefer pegged to first. Ludy dashed back. Killefer’s throw was bad and Merkle dropped the ball, but Luderus overslid and Merkle got the ball in time to tag him.

Cue Yakity Sax. Why did Luderus try to tag on a foulout to catcher? Why did Killfer throw to first? Why did Luderus turn around and go back to first?

There are things in this world that we will never fully understand.

Today's Birthday Team has an impressive collection of position players and an unimpressive collection of pitchers. The pitching staff admittedly becomes much more impressive if a football game breaks out.

C/Manager: Roger Bresnahan (43.3 WAR)
1B: The Other Frank Thomas (18.5 WAR)
2B: Dave Cash (25.6 WAR)
3B: Jose Reyes (36.0 WAR)
SS: Charlie Hollocher (23.2 WAR)
LF: Brock Holt (6.8 WAR)
CF: Ezequiel Carrera (0.2 WAR)
RF: Mike Davis (14.5 WAR)

SP: Odalis Perez (8.9 WAR)
SP: Wheezer Dell (3.2 WAR)
SP: John Doherty (3.0 WAR)
SP: Ernie Nevers (1.1 WAR)
SP: Tom Baker (0.8 WAR)
RP: Bobby Keppel (0.2 WAR)

Coiner of "Pronk": Bill Selby
Fun name: Pop Joy
Not that one: Jimmy Stewart

Not that one: Jimmy Stewart I like it.

Is it just me, or are the 'last 365 days' splits at baseball-reference not working right?

SP: Odalis Perez (8.9 WAR)
He pitched the closest game to a no-hitter (and a perfect game) I've ever seen in person. One hit, an infield single to Corey Patterson IIRC. It was in an early-ish inning, though.

EDIT: Yep, here it is. April 26, 2002. He faced the minimum, getting Chris Stynes to GIDP after the hit.

I thought I'd heard The Other Frank Thomas had died, but he turns 90 today. 22 of the 45 guys who played for the 1962 Mets are still alive, according to bb-ref. Ed Kranepool will turn 75 in November. Everybody else on the team is or would be in their 80's or 90's.

3- They’ve been screwy for a while. I use FanGraphs when I need “last 365” splits.

(Most strikeouts over the last 365 days:

1. Yoan Moncada, 209
2. Javier Baez, 195
3. Bryce Harper, 191
4. Joey Gallo, 190
5. Chris Davis, 174
5. Khris Davis, 174)

That Bryce Harper number is so depressing.

Thanks. On Fangraphs, is it already generated, or do you have to use the Splits Tool?

I have to use the splits tool.

It there's anyone who deserves to get the "Not that one" tag, it would be Tom Baker.

But he's a Generational Talent who must get a $400 million contract, or else collusion! Free agency is broken! </Fangraphs>
   13. Javy Joan Baez (chris h.) Posted: June 11, 2019 at 04:29 PM (#5850698)
Who?

I see what you did there.
   14. Nasty Nate Posted: June 11, 2019 at 04:35 PM (#5850701)
He's on first
