Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 8-25-2014

Toledo News-Bee, August 25, 1914:

The Pittsburgh club, when it obtains a new player, sends him, along with his contract, a form-card, which he is to fill out and return.
One youngster, duly receiving his card-chart, filled most of it out very satisfactorily, but seemed a bit hazy as to a few questions. Appended is a section of his card:

Batting average, 1913: .322
Batting average to date, 1914: .341
Stolen bases to date: 37
Years in professional ball: Three.
First engagement: I had rather not put that in, because I married a diffrunt [sic] girl and my wife would get sore.
Original position: Paper hanger.

Choo-Choo Coleman would be proud.

The Game of 8/22/84 featured a pitcher who seemed to be turning into a borderline ace at the time; he seemed less like a borderline ace after being felled by a severe shoulder injury less than a month later. His team took the lead in extra innings, then found themselves forced to turn to the last man in the bullpen, who proceeded to meet the very mild distinction of having one of the best outings of his brief career.

In the Game of 8/22/14, one of the stars was a rookie who, at least in this game, did all that his team could have hoped for from him and more. It would have helped if the rest of his team hadn't literally left him as a one-man offense.
   5. Eric J can SABER all he wants to Posted: August 25, 2014 at 09:56 AM (#4778445)
The Game of 8/23/84 included one team recovering quite nicely from a rather disastrous starting pitching performance, thanks to 10 hits from the top third of their order. The rally began with the only career hit by a player who spent 7 years in the majors.
   6. Eric J can SABER all he wants to Posted: August 25, 2014 at 10:11 AM (#4778458)
The Game of 8/23/14 was one of the 20 best of the year so far, and the highlight of one of the best half-dozen days of the season to date, and resulted in a change at the top of the 2014 excitement standings - which I'm sure will help mute the unpleasantness for the new leading team, which went 2 for 13 with runners in scoring position and lost the game in extras after blowing a ninth-inning lead.

1897 LOU signs Rube Waddell as free agent

When Louisville and Pittsburgh get jammed together in 1900, you end up with a Phillippe-Tannehill-Leever-Chesbro-Waddell rotation, all in their 20s, all starting 22 to 33 games, all (weirdly) heading for between 189 and 198 lifetime wins. Is whoever you pick as No. 5 there the best fifth starter ever?

I like the daily highlights. I learned today that Branch Rickey actually played in MLB (though he wasn't any good); I don't know what I'd thought about him before - guess I always assumed he was just management.

1982 Tony Gwynn, SDP, breaks wrist diving for fly
Gwynn had been in a slump for a month and was hitting .271 when he got hurt. He came back three weeks later and hit .348 the rest of the season. And then .339 over the next 19 years.

Thanks. If you (or anyone else) cares, I usually put a non-baseball This Day in History near the start of the lounge. Today it actually was the first post in it. (Actually, I then usually do the baseball list and then cut/paste it here.

The Game of 8/24/84 presented a nifty youth vs. age pitching matchup. It also had a dominant two-man bullpen performance, a bunch of untimely errors (one of which may be actually ironic or may just be Alanis ironic), and another game-defining performance from one of the year's breakout stars.

The guy with the most homers in baseball this year is hitting .203/.272/.383 over his last 70 games.

Justin Morneau currently has the best batting average in the National League….at .317.

Only three times since WW2 has a player won a batting title with a lower average: Tony Gwynn won it in 1988 with a .313 mark, Frank Robinson hit .316 to win in 1966, and Carl Yazstrzemski famously won the 1968 AL batting crown by hitting .301.

Mike Olt is still 3rd on the Cubs in home runs, despite hitting .139 and being sent to AAA over a month ago.

Wily Peralta has the most wins in baseball.

I should check out the traditional stat leader boards more often!
   17. Jefferson Manship (Dan Lee) Posted: August 25, 2014 at 01:30 PM (#4778662)
I was only vaguely aware that something named Wily Peralta was a professional baseball player.
   18. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: August 25, 2014 at 02:12 PM (#4778711)
Mike Olt is still 3rd on the Cubs in home runs, despite hitting .139 and being sent to AAA over a month ago.
Mike Moustakas is just 1 homer shy of leading the FIRST PLACE ROYALS, despite a .207/.268/.381 line and spending a couple weeks in AAA May.

Also, Omar Infante leads the team in RBIs, despite

A) Being Omar Infante, and

B) Hitting .257/.295/.356
   19. Batman Posted: August 25, 2014 at 02:41 PM (#4778740)
Victor Martinez has 25 HR and he's been the hardest to strike out in MLB this year. The only player with more HR in a year when he led in AB per strikeout was Tommy Holmes in 1945. Holmes had 28 that year and also led both leagues in that category.
   20. Eric J can SABER all he wants to Posted: August 25, 2014 at 04:53 PM (#4778903)
The Game of 8/24/14 had one of its teams remove both one of the best pitchers in baseball and one of the best position players in baseball by the end of the third inning, then rally to take the lead despite those rather significant setbacks. Also, it had an inning with three passed balls and a wild pitch, and the losing team got the tying run into scoring position in each of the last four innings without bringing it home.
   21. AndrewJ Posted: August 25, 2014 at 05:39 PM (#4778960)
Also on this date:

1995 Probably the only game in MLB history where 1) a pitcher hits a grand slam and 2) a player hits for the cycle. And probably the only game in MLB history where 1) a pitcher hits a grand slam and 2) a player hits for the cycle by the 5th inning, then after the ballgame goes to the hospital because his wife's gone into labor.
