Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 9-2-2014

Pittsburgh Press, September 2, 1914:

According to a letter received by Mrs. “Rebel” Oakes, from Mrs. Arnold Hauser, Hauser, the former shortstop of the St. Louis Cardinals, who has been ill for almost two years, has greatly improved and has great hopes of re-entering the game next season.

Hauser has been in a sanitarium near St. Louis for some time, not having played ball since 1912. The former Card weighed but 99 pounds when he went to the sanitarium but since that time his weight has increased to 137 pounds.

Hauser’s story is heartbreaking.

His father died in 1904, when Arnold was a teenager. In 1912, his mother committed suicide, and in 1913 Hauser’s infant daughter died. The deaths in his family, in addition to a severe knee injury, sent him over the edge. According to his SABR bio, Hauser arrived at Spring Training 1914 having lost 25 pounds, obviously severely depressed, and suffering from delusions. He was committed to a sanitarium and was diagnosed as “a victim of melancholia with a religious trend”.

Hauser had a cup of coffee with the 1915 Chicago Whales, but didn’t play particularly well and was out of baseball at the end of the year.

The Game of 8/29/84 featured a pitching matchup that could only have been even relatively fair this year, because the franchise legend was on his way out by this point. The all-around bad starter got knocked out early, but his team hung in the game and pulled out the win in a contest in which the teams went a combined 3 for 23 with runners in scoring position.

The Game of 8/29/14 was started by two pitchers who seem like they should have a much bigger age difference than they do. One team got cool hitting numbers from the left side of its infield, the other team had the flashy pitching performances, and that left an early-game error as the only thing to separate them.

The Game of 8/30/84 was the first game of a doubleheader - and you could tell, because a guy who wasn't a starter any more started it, and a bunch of regulars were used as pinch hitters. Most notably, a guy who hit less than .4% of his career home runs as a pinch hitter had one of them in this game. It also featured another player who had a pretty long career putting up a career high WPA. And to top it off, the teams came back and played another game almost exactly as good in the second half of the twinbill.

The Game of 8/30/14 was a thoroughly brutal loss for a pennant contender - extra innings, multiple big rallies that produced nothing, and a winning run on a defensive mishap. Oh, and it dropped them into a tie for first.

The Game of 8/31/84 doubles as an incredibly unhelpful instruction manual for how to beat this season's best team in baseball. At least it worked for one game.

The Game of 8/31/14 may not actually be the game of 8/31/14, depending on how the bottom of a certain tenth inning goes on September 22. Either way, it provides a helpful example of the kind of season a certain RBI-happy hitter is having, while also giving a journeyman catcher a bit of a moment in the sun.

The losing pitcher in that game was a 20-year-old kid making his MLB debut.

Some guy named Greg Maddux. Never heard of him.
   7. Dan Lee is some pumkins Posted: September 02, 2014 at 09:34 AM (#4783534)
The pitchers who appeared in that Cubs-Astros game on September 2, 1986 combined for 1763 career wins. That's gotta be a record, right?

Maddux   355
Ryan     324
Moyer    269
Darwin   171
Knepper  146
Trout     88

Also appearing in that game but not pitching were pinch-hitter Rick Sutcliffe (171 career wins) and pinch-runner Scott Sanderson (163 career wins).
   9. Random Transaction Generator Posted: September 02, 2014 at 10:01 AM (#4783559)
I can't seem to search BR-PI properly to get all games where a specific pitcher (say Clemens, or Maddux, or Ryan) were involved in an extra-inning game with more than X pitchers used.

Pitching debut maybe. But he made his MLB debut as a pinch runner.

Pitching debut maybe. But he made his MLB debut as a pinch runner.
He pinch ran and stayed in to pitch, according to the box score. Which is a really weird thing that I don't remember ever having seen before. (Being a PR-P is weird, not seeing box scores. I've been looking at those for decades.)

Josh Harrison has moved ahead of Justin Morneau in the National League batting race, as Harrison now paces the senior circuit with a mark of .311.

Aramis Ramirez is in 6th place, with a .300 average. He's also 36. Would he be the oldest person to win a batting title for the first time?
   13. Dan Lee is some pumkins Posted: September 02, 2014 at 10:49 AM (#4783607)
Barry Bonds was 38 (but in his age 37 season) when he won his first title. Is MLB still pretending he wasn't a thing?

I suspect Aramis would become the second-oldest.
   14. Tom Nawrocki Posted: September 02, 2014 at 11:05 AM (#4783628)
Chipper Jones was 36 when he won his first batting title in 2008.

Cuddyer was 34 when he won his first batting title last year. Morneau is 33 (and has never won one), if he can come back to win it this year. Al Oliver won his first (and only) at age 35.

Heh.

?@JPosnanski

Fun list, last 5 individuals to have tickertape parade in NY: John Glenn, Nelson Mandela, Pope John Paul II and, yep, Sammy Sosa.


Yea, I know, its only four.
   16. JustDan Posted: September 02, 2014 at 11:22 AM (#4783656)
Speaking of age; I heard that Bryce Harper has not faced a pitcher younger than him in the majors, minors, or on minor rehab. I checked this year and he is younger than all the major league pitchers who have pitched this year (just a couple months younger than Jose Fernandez). I checked his 5 games while on rehab this year, and he faced only pitchers older than him in all those games. So it's true for 2014, and likely true for past years. I'm not sure if there are any pitchers on the expanded rosters younger than him, but he is likely to continue this until next year.
   17. JJ1986 Posted: September 02, 2014 at 11:33 AM (#4783670)
Brandon Finnegan is younger, but he'll be in the other league.
   18. RoyalsRetro (AG#1F) Posted: September 02, 2014 at 11:43 AM (#4783686)
Finnegan will face Harper in the World Series this fall!

I've come full circle and now want to see Josh Harrison win the MVP Award.
   20. Yoenis Cespedes, Baseball Savant Posted: September 02, 2014 at 01:16 PM (#4783787)
Harrison (PIT) appears all over the leaderboards:

Batting Average: 1
WAR Position Players: 9
Adjusted OPS+: 9
Slugging %: 8
On-Base Plus Slugging: 10
Triples: 7

On-Base Plus Slugging: 10
Triples: 7
While spending time at second, third, short, left and right. He avoids hitting into double plays and he avoids striking out. He's "leveraging" his success well this year--his numbers with RISP and in Late & Close situations are much better than in "normal" situations. He seems like a great baserunner, though I am probably biased by the highlight of that one time he Matrixed his way out of a rundown.

I guess, I'll say, if Cesar Tovar got a couple of first place votes over Yaz in '67, then Josh Harrison can get a couple this year over Kershaw, right?

Box score

I thought this was odd, but found the boxscore to show nothing like that happened.

He did that again a couple of weeks later, but old hat by then.

Birthday pitcher Luke Walker batted (and slugged) an honest .059 in 188 at-bats. He also was an unwilling hero in the 1971 World Series, getting hit hard enough in Game 4 that Danny Murtaugh was forced to remove him after recording only two outs. Bruce Kison relieved and threw 6 1/3 innings of one-hit ball to let the Pirates rally and tie the Series. Walker would be one of the starters for the All-Walker team, which is thin on pitching but gushing with position players.

Josh Harrison has moved ahead of Justin Morneau in the National League batting race, as Harrison now paces the senior circuit with a mark of .311.

If Mike Matheny had not kept slotting the team OBP leader in the eighth spot in the lineup, and maybe move him up to second (in place of the guy with the sub-.300 OBP) then maybe Jon Jay---currently hitting .313---would have been able to accrue enough PA to qualify for the batting title.

As it is, he's 123 short of 502 with 25 games to go. And since Matheny still occasionally benches him against a lefty---even though he's hitting something like .390 vs. LHP---he figures to get only another 30 starts, batting seventh or eighth, so pencil him in for another 80 PA, and he ends up around 460.
   26. Dan Lee is some pumkins Posted: September 02, 2014 at 03:19 PM (#4783904)
All-Walker Team:

C: Walker Cooper
1B: Greg Walker
2B: Neil Walker
3B: Chico Walker
SS: No real shortstops
LF: Tillie Walker
CF: Dixie Walker
RF: Larry Walker

SP: Bill Walker
SP: Jerry Walker
SP: Dixie Walker
SP: Luke Walker
SP: Pete Walker
RP: Jamie Walker

If this were a real team, I guess they'd probably have Chico play shortstop, Todd play third, and leave Neil at second. No matter what they do, that's going to be a suspect defensive infield.

If it helps, I say if no one gets to like .320 by the end of the season--something respectable, at least!--I vote we just scrap all the rules and award the title to Troy Tulowitzki.
   28. Chris Fluit Posted: September 02, 2014 at 03:24 PM (#4783914)
All due respect to Larry Walker, but the starting right fielder should really be Roberto Walker Clemente.
   29. Dan Lee is some pumkins Posted: September 02, 2014 at 03:26 PM (#4783918)
Well, yeah, Chris. I'm good with that if middle names count.

I felt like I was cheating including Walker Cooper, but maybe I'm just overly paranoid.
   30. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: September 02, 2014 at 03:27 PM (#4783919)
.311 would be the lowest AVG by a batting champion since Yaz hit .301 in 1968 to lead the American League.

.311 would be the lowest AVG by a batting champion in the National League in.....ever.
   31. Batman Posted: September 02, 2014 at 03:28 PM (#4783920)
Statistics be damned, Mysterious Walker should be on the team.
   32. Rennie's Tenet Posted: September 02, 2014 at 03:29 PM (#4783921)
There's also a Cliff Walker Lee, unfortunately an outfielder from the 20s instead of the pitcher.
   33. just plain joe Posted: September 02, 2014 at 03:31 PM (#4783922)
Duh, the All Walker team leaves off the greatest Walker of them all, Walker Texas Ranger; he could play shortstop, if he wanted to.
   34. Dan Lee is some pumkins Posted: September 02, 2014 at 03:33 PM (#4783925)
Mysterious Walker and Fleet Walker are always welcome. They just might not play very much, or at all.

Would not have guessed that Tony Gwynn would be the current "record" holder, with a .313 in 1988.
   36. Eric J can SABER all he wants to Posted: September 02, 2014 at 05:14 PM (#4784055)
The Game of 9/1/84 was... well, it was awesome. It had three hits from a guy who had a LOT of hits, and three RBI from a guy who did NOT have a lot of RBI, and a two-run double from a starting pitcher, and three runners thrown out at the plate, and a comeback in extra innings.

And none of that was the best part, because it also had a 42-year-old future Hall of Famer hitting the last walkoff home run of his career.
   37. Eric J can SABER all he wants to Posted: September 02, 2014 at 07:06 PM (#4784145)
The Game of 9/1/14 was a combined no-hitter... at least, maybe. It depends heavily on how you feel about combined no-hitters as compared to individual ones. Is there a consensus on this? Are they equally awesome, or close, or merely kind of neat, or entirely lame?
   38. Batman Posted: September 02, 2014 at 07:27 PM (#4784160)
Would not have guessed that Tony Gwynn would be the current "record" holder, with a .313 in 1988.
That was the second-worst qualifying batting average of Gwynn's career, and he won the batting title. He finished 8th in the NL in 1990 when he had his worst qualifying BA.
   39. Chris Fluit Posted: September 02, 2014 at 07:36 PM (#4784163)
Well, yeah, Chris. I'm good with that if middle names count.


It's not his middle name. It's his mother's maiden name. Puerto Ricans (and many Hispanics) hyphenate the last name- father's name first, mother's name second. So his name is actually Roberto Clemente Walker. I don't know why Baseball Reference had it backwards. (They got it wrong on his original Hall of Fame plaque as well, until someone in the family asked them to correct it. The incorrect version is hanging in the kids' clubhouse behind the plaque room.)



   40. Dan Lee is some pumkins Posted: September 02, 2014 at 08:14 PM (#4784176)
It's not his middle name. It's his mother's maiden name.
Ah, right, right. I knew that was a thing, I just hadn't connected the dots.

I'm fine with moving Larry to center and putting Roberto in right. Larry wasn't anything special as a center fielder, but he could play CF cromulently and seems like the sort of guy who'd see Clemente, say "Yep, he should be in right field", and go do the best he can out of position.
