Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 7-23-2018

Washington Herald, July 23, 1918:

The pennant in the American Association was awarded to the Kansas City club at the close of [yesterday’s] game, which marked the end of the 1918 season, by John J. Hickey, president of the league.

Elsewhere on the same page:

The American Association and the Eastern and Virginia leagues shut up shop after yesterday, and thus the New International is now the only remaining so-called minor league in action. Hand it to the circuit for being game.

The minor league season was essentially over at this point, and discussions had begun as to what was going to happen with the big league season.

In Friday’s dugout, Kiko mentioned Roy Cullenbine, an honorary Walking Eddie. That prompted me to look up his numbers at BBRef, and I noticed that he led the AL in walks in 1945 while playing for two different teams.

That got me wondering who were the last players to lead the league in various categories while switching clubs midway through the year. Thus, a Dag-sized Dugout quiz was born.

A few notes: All of the answers moved within their league, where their stats were combined. Thus, Willie McGee winning the 1990 NL batting title while ensconced in Oakland does not qualify.

Also, one player is the answer twice. Not that he led more than one category (several guys did that), but he was the last leader in a category during two different seasons.

Finally, one player spent a season on three different teams, all in the same league.

Clues are provided for all. And needed for most.

Offense
Position Player WAR/Runs – A Hall of Famer who had four seasons where he changed teams during the campaign.

BA/OBP – Career NLer had one of the great nicknames of his era.

SLG – This Scandinavian’s league-leading slugging percentage was driven by his position atop the triples leaderboard.

Games – Also a foreign-born outfielder, though one with a decidedly more memorable name.

Hits – Another Hall of Famer. He is linked inextricably to a single franchise, though it wasn’t one of the two teams he played on during his only 200-hit season.

Doubles – You’ve got to go all the way back to the American Association to find the only player to shift teams during a season when he led the league in two baggers.

Triples – Outfielder was a league-leader in eight different offensive categories over the course of his career.

Homers/RBIs – Career ALer who recorded all of his homers and all but four of his RBIs with the acquiring club.

Walks – Never appeared in the postseason in 14-season career, all of it in the wild card era.

Strikeouts – This was the last of his four seasons leading all of MLB in Ks.

Stolen Bases – His father was also a major leaguer.

Hit By Pitch – His league-leading total was the highest figure in nearly 20 years.

No player has ever led the league in OPS, raw or adjusted, during a season when he switched teams within a league.

Pitching

Pitcher WAR – He led the league in wins the season after he was dealt mid-year.

ERA – He finished runner-up in Cy Young voting while splitting campaign between two clubs.

Games Started/Inning Pitched/Strikeouts – First of two straight years getting dealt during the season.

Wins – He also led the league in complete games with 24, contributing to his 35 decisions for the year.

Winning Percentage – A previously well-traveled pitcher found stability and success in his new city.

WHIP – He never won a Cy, but he finished in the Top 6 of the voting a half-dozen times.

Games Played – He had primarily been a starter until his league-leading appearance season, which he split across three franchises.

Saves – Long-time coach who got a single season piloting an AL club.

Complete Games – Led league in CGs in second-straight year getting dealt near the deadline.

Shutouts – Career cut short by tragedy.

Losses – Acquired as part of a four-for-one swap (not surprisingly, he was among the four).

Hornsby?

Not Hornsby.

BA: Harry Walker?
SLG: John Anderson?
Games: Ichiro Suzuki?
Walks: Adam Dunn? (I feel like he went to the A's in one of their last postseason trips, but maybe he didn't play in the Wild Card game)
Strikeouts: Dunn again? (From the way this is formatted, I guess he can't be the answer to both of these)
   6. Crispix Attacksel Rios Posted: July 23, 2018 at 10:43 AM (#5714027)
Ah yes it could be Adam Dunn, the year he was traded to the Diamondbacks.
   7. Crispix Attacksel Rios Posted: July 23, 2018 at 10:44 AM (#5714029)
Stolen Bases – His father was also a major leaguer.


Dee Gordon?

CG - Cliff Lee?

Nicely done. All of them are correct. As is Cliff Lee.

Dunn is not also the strikeouts leader, and Gordon is incorrect.


Ah yes it could be Adam Dunn, the year he was traded to the Diamondbacks.


In that case, I would have paired the categories.

Rickey is correct.

SoSH and any others with experience with kids in HS and travel ball...particularly in Indiana:

Do we *really* need to go register with PBR (and attend a camp for whatever number of bucks they want) to find out about things like a Colt World Series team being formed in the area, or for the HS (or, heck, travel) coaches to take a kid semi-seriously?

Background: Kid hit .570/.700/1.000 across both JV levels last year (127 PA; most among kids in the HS system), has done the same in 15U travel ball (though limited exposure...the organization had notable growing pains in adding a 15U team), and yet kids from his other local HS teams who hit .350/.430/.480 at the JV level were moved up to to play some V during the season, were invited to play on 16U travel teams, invited to the CWS tryouts, etc. Only difference seems to be that they have attended PBR camps in the past.

Additional Background: We aren't looking for a college scholarship...he wants to attend the local U (tuition will only be about $6-7K/yr for faculty kids) to major in ME (biomechanics) and would like to consider walking-on to the baseball team. He has interacted a lot with the local U's coach and they seem to get along well.

So...should I care and intervene to increase his "exposure"? or should I just let it ride and look into intervention if he rocks it again as a sophomore with no reward? [Also, kid's HS Coach has already shown himself to be a POS when he chewed out said kid for not notifying him the day of---as opposed to the day before...via email---that he'd miss a pre-season practice due to his grandfather's out-of-town memorial service.]

I may have misread the rules of the game, but Bert Blyleven had 24 complete games, leading the AL, splitting his season between the Indians and Twins in 1985.

I wish I could offer any real advice here Tom, but I can't. My gut reaction is if he's not planning to go somewhere to play, save your dough.

Just out of curiosity, does he have the backing of the JV coach?

I'm looking for the most recent in each of these categories.
   17. CheersUnusualPlays Posted: July 23, 2018 at 11:39 AM (#5714085)
Ginger Beaumont and Ty Cobb were my friend's two favourite deadball players (mine were Wahoo Sam and Wee Tommy Leach)
   18. Misirlou doesn't live in the restaurant Posted: July 23, 2018 at 11:44 AM (#5714089)
Blyleven has to be the wins guy then.

edit: no. Wow, there's 2 guys who led he league in CG with 24 in seasons in which they were dealt in mid season.
   19. Misirlou doesn't live in the restaurant Posted: July 23, 2018 at 11:47 AM (#5714093)

Moyer?
   20. SoSH U at work Posted: July 23, 2018 at 11:48 AM (#5714096)
Bert never led the league in wins (and while he led the league in GS, CG, SHO, IP and Ks during his split '85 campaign, he's not the most recent in any of the categories).
   21. SoSH U at work Posted: July 23, 2018 at 11:49 AM (#5714098)
Moyer?


Moyer is correct.
   22. Misirlou doesn't live in the restaurant Posted: July 23, 2018 at 11:50 AM (#5714101)
Tom Seaver for wins?
   23. SoSH U at work Posted: July 23, 2018 at 11:52 AM (#5714107)

Tom Seaver for wins?


Not Seaver. Earlier. His league-leading 23 wins represented one-third of his career total.

Actor/Singer/Game show host/Minor league ballplayer: Bert Convy


Also the answer to "who's in the box?"
   25. VCar Posted: July 23, 2018 at 01:46 PM (#5714205)
Thus, Willie McGee winning the 1990 NL batting title while ensconced in Oakland does not qualify.


...and Brett ruined one of the potentially great trivia ?'s of all time when he beat out Rickey for the AL crown that year. Otherwise we would have had "who are the only teammates to win batting titles in the same season?"
   26. Tom T Posted: July 23, 2018 at 02:09 PM (#5714219)
Just out of curiosity, does he have the backing of the JV coach?


Yes. JV coaches (both levels) loved him. Upper JV coach (played in 1/3 of their games, led them in 3B and was third in BB) told me he kept telling the head coach that the kid could play pretty much anywhere in IF or OF without it being a problem, because "he'll hit".

This year we are facing the problem that the head coach wants to turn him into a C, but the kid did it this year and is totally uninterested in that for the future. The kid I view as having been clearly the top sophomore this past season begged off C going into this past year and then only got 4 PA with varsity in spite of hitting .523/.567/.872 as a JV and leading all of the players (V or JV) in HR. (For context, the third highest OPS across all players on the JV levels was 1.115 [71 PA] vs. 1.700 [126 PA] and 1.439 [97 PA]. Top varsity OPS was 1.043 [98 PA].)

Anyway, my thought was similar to yours --- if he's just planning on attending the local U and the (*very good*) coach already knows/likes him, and "walk-on" is his target...then it just doesn't seem worth it to spend the money for PBR. The kid has also nixed playing on the "better" travel teams, because he doesn't want to be going to GA, NE, VA, etc. to play tournaments. He would rather spend the summer playing more locally such that he can still do family things, like help teaching hitting/pitching to the kids on his brothers' baseball teams, go on camping vacations, etc.

At some level, I also am still idealistic enough to believe that IF he ends up truly being good enough to be recruited by bigger colleges, that *somebody* out there (at least the local U) will notice. I think the school is big enough (5A football) and has a strong-enough historical reputation (1 state championship, strong conference).

Regardless, thanks so much for the feedback! Not being intimately tied into the HS sports scene (I *stunk* at athletics) clearly leaves me outside the normal channels.

As it is, we got the trivia question, "Who is the only player to win a batting title in three different decades?" which is almost as cool depending on your thoughts on both batting average and arbitrary decade divisions.
   28. Crispix Attacksel Rios Posted: July 23, 2018 at 02:28 PM (#5714231)
I can't guess any of these. I have no frame of reference and will be embarrassed if I guess Mike Piazza and it turns out the answer is Roger Connor. We need decades.
   29. Don August(us) Cesar Geronimo Berroa Posted: July 23, 2018 at 02:33 PM (#5714234)

Since it's getting late in the day, here are some extra clues for the unanswered:

Hits – Former skipper.

Doubles – He died one week after playing his final game, at age 28.

Triples – Speedy southpaw.

Homers/RBIs – In the three-team deal he was acquired in, the team that sent him got a franchise legend.

Strikeouts - You really shouldn't need any more hints for this one.

Pitcher

ERA - Active pitcher, but not with either of the teams he won the ERA crown for.

GS/IP/Ks - Same as above.

Wins - Hoo boy. Sounds like a famed pilot.

WHIP - Retired righthander.

Games Pitched - Reliever who has since moved onto the AL.

The answer for doubles you're looking for in doubles is Hub Collins, but that is not the correct answer- Steve Evans also did it in the 1915 Federal League.

Hits- Red Schoendienst.

Is WHIP Roy Oswalt?

Wins - Hoo boy. Sounds like a famed pilot.


Tim Bouton?

Is WHIP Roy Oswalt?


It is indeed.

Tim Bouton?


Not that kind.

Games Started/Inning Pitched/Strikeouts – 2010s


David Price?
   55. SoSH U at work Posted: July 23, 2018 at 06:56 PM (#5714445)

David Price?


Yes. He led the AL in those three categories the season he got dealt from TB to Det., then led the league in ERA the following season when he was sent to Toronto from Detroit.

Strikeouts- Rob Deer?

Triples - Vince Coleman?

   57. SoSH U at work Posted: July 23, 2018 at 08:49 PM (#5714504)
Strikeouts- Rob Deer?


Yup.

Coleman is not the triples leader.

Still looking for triples, homers, wins and appearances.
   58. Crispix Attacksel Rios Posted: July 23, 2018 at 09:04 PM (#5714525)
I looked up the triples one and I think it should be 1990s, not 1980s?

Although the player in question definitely peaked in the 1980s.

Yes, a typo on the answer list I kept, aided by the fact that I also think of him as more of an 80s guy than a 90s player.

That hint makes me think Brett Butler.
   61. SoSH U at work Posted: July 23, 2018 at 09:37 PM (#5714565)
Butler is correct.

HR/RBI: Gus Zernial?

HR/RBI: Gus Zernial?



Correct. And, at this hour, I'll just give the final two.

The last wins leader to switch teams midseason was Red Barrett, who won 23 games between Boston and St. Louis in the NL in 1945.

The appearances leader was more recent. In 2017, Juan Nicasio led the NL with 76 games pitched while splitting time between Pittsburgh, Philly and St. Louis.

Doubles – Steve Evans, 1915 BRO/BAL (FL) 34; (answers to clues) Hub Collins, 1888, LOU/BRO (AA), 31 (I did look at FL stats, I just didn't realize the doubles page extended that far).
Triples –Brett Butler, 1995, NYM/LAD, 9

it just doesn't seem worth it to spend the money for PBR.


It's never worth it to spend money for Pabst Blue Ribbon
