Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 9-6-2018

Harrisburg Telegraph, September 6, 1918:

“Stuffy” McInnis and “Babe” Ruth Heroes at World Series Opening

With runners on first and second base in the fourth inning of the first of the world series games at Chicago, “Stuffy” McInnis rapped a line single to left field and Dave Shean sped across the plate with the only run of the contest…It was the first time a 1 to 0 score has decided a world’s series game since 1905…

The battle was rated a great triumph for “Babe” Ruth, who outpitched another famous southpaw, Jim Vaughn, particularly by his ability to prevent the Cubs from hitting at the essential moment.

Advantage Red Sox after one game. Game Two took place 100 years ago today, with Boston’s Bullet Joe Bush facing Chicago’s Lefty Tyler.

Rommel and Ferguson are correct.

Sorry about the Jays. I checked thoroughly with most of the other teams, but I thought I knew the Jays and Rays and didn't bother looking above Sonanstine and Stroman.

We're still missing the Cubs and the Rangers.

Carlos Zambrano was the Cubs leader from 2008 until he became a Marlin in 2012.
   104. Sweatpants Posted: September 06, 2018 at 04:36 PM (#5740122)
I'll guess some Cub from the early 1900s. Ed Reulbach?
   105. JJ1986 Posted: September 06, 2018 at 07:36 PM (#5740216)
The Rangers leader was paid money by the Phillies this year.
   106. PreservedFish Posted: September 06, 2018 at 07:52 PM (#5740224)
Got it. Last clue did it. Matt Harrison.
   107. crict Posted: September 06, 2018 at 07:58 PM (#5740225)
In case some are wondering here are the inactive leaders for the franchises for which the leader is still active:

Mets: Pedro Feliciano 22
Mariners: Julio Mateo 18
Braves: Rick Camp 56
Rockies: Roger Bailey 18

For the HR leaders
Brewers: Robin Yount 251 (Braun - 316)
Marlins: Ed Lucas/Darrel Whitmore 5 (Dietrich - 60)
Mets: Ed Kranepool 118 (Wright - 242)
Jays: Garth Iorg 20 (Pillar - 51)
Nationals: Coco Laboy 28 (Zimmerman - 263)
Dbacks: Robby Hammock 12 (Goldschmidt - 207. Debatable if Yasmany Thomas will ever play in MLB again. He has 48)
White Sox: Ron Karkovice 96 (Abreu - 146)
   108. JJ1986 Posted: September 06, 2018 at 08:02 PM (#5740227)
Marlins: Ed Lucas/Darrel Whitmore 5
Holy ####.
   109. crict Posted: September 06, 2018 at 08:07 PM (#5740230)
About the Marlins: There's a Brad Davis who hit 3 homeruns in 2010, then it's Jose Fernandez with his 2 HRs.
   110. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: September 06, 2018 at 08:19 PM (#5740232)
Marlins: Ed Lucas/Darrel Whitmore 5

Holy ####.
That, ladies and gentlemen, is just how bad you have to be for the Marlins not to trade you.
   111. JJ1986 Posted: September 06, 2018 at 08:27 PM (#5740234)
All 3 of Lucas, Whitmore and Davis played for other organizations in the minors. Fernandez is the leader among guys who were only ever in the Marlins system.

I looked up the last man standing, the Cub with 91 wins. I had never heard of him, but he shares a surname with an actor that has most recently appeared in such straight-to-DVD films as Sharknado 5 and Kindergarten Cop 2.

That's as good a clue as any. I hadn't heard of him either.

FWIW, if I had phrased the question asking which players earned all of their wins for a single franchise, we'd have had four different leaders (well, one co-leader).

Cubs all-time wins leader Charlie Root won all of his 201 games with Chicago, and lost four decisions with the Browns.

All 134 of Jim Maloney's wins came with Cincy. He went 0-3 with the Angels.

Craig Swan won 59 games with the Mets, and lost his only decision with California.

And Babe Adams would have tied Leever with 194 wins with the Bucs. He lost the only game he pitched for the Cards.

Dave Stieb, however, went 1-3 in his brief stint with the White Sox.
   114. crict Posted: September 06, 2018 at 10:21 PM (#5740307)
Also Jered Weaver, who apparently went 0-5 with the Padres last year (I have no recollection of that), after winning 150 games for the Angels.
   115. SoSH U at work Posted: September 07, 2018 at 12:04 AM (#5740359)
For completion purposes, the final answer was Carl Lundgren, who won 91 games during the first decade of the 1900s for the Cubs.
