Jeff offered up Brett Myers as well, and for the first time ever, we had a triple burning. Eric appears to be the best ‘cutter.’ Or else his cuts are simply so crappy and useless there’s little chance anyone will ever want them again. This next category is somewhat more random; I don’t think anyone specifically scouts or targets players who have previously been in the league any more than other players.There was brief concern as the pyre grew to record heights. 22 years ago I first published this study in the summer newsletter.Of Future Wax’s 37 series wins: 11 were won in 7 games 15 were won in 6 games 10 were won in 5 games And only 1 was a 4 game sweep.
He has the highest salaried pitching staff and infield.
How soon until fans revolt for paying outrageous ticket prices?
However, Tom refused to allow his extra (non-laminated league-issued) A-Rod to be burned and after much hand wringing, we moved on without a card burning for the first time in draft history.
I printed off a computer version of A-Rod and an old computer version of Clemens (to prevent a reoccurrence of last year when the league voted to burn A-Rod, but Tom refused to allow his A-Rod to be burned). Eric 2 I’m sure this comes as no surprise to Robin (who notes that this number is even more striking given that some of her players died and were thus unlikely to be drafted posthumously).
(Robin adds that Ryan Braun is the early front-runner for next year’s burning – only because ‘banned for life’ A-Rod won’t have a card). It also featured my thinking that Bernard Gilkey had hit a go-ahead 3-run homer in the 8 inning of game 6, only to learn (after yelling and leaping around the room like a maniac) from Andrew, calmly sitting there waiting for me to return, that I had been looking on the wrong side of Gilkey’s card. And (again) which team was really better, North Dakota or Future Wax? A one-run loss in the finale, which could have gone either way, missing a 1-16 HR chance, yada, yada, yada. In 2000 games, North Dakota won 1119 and Future Wax won 881, a .560 winning percentage.
overall, I wanted to verify if that was indeed a record and decided to turn it into a study. round Most likely to draft a retread in first two rounds : Eric has done it five times Most likely to be chagrined at having former cut redrafted in first two rounds: Jeff and Robin (4) Most likely to redraft own player in first two rounds: Eric and Robin, 1 each Who has had the most players redrafted, period? Here are the totals for the past 5 drafts (2014-2018) 1. Like the Red Sox “Which team was really better, North Dakota or Future Wax? To try to answer those questions, I played North Dakota against Future Wax on the trusty Strat-O computer for 1000 games, both before and after the big ransom trades. So, I pitted the two teams against each other for 2000 games. Certainly statistically significant evidence that North Dakota was indeed the better team. North Dakota did finish in first place, 4 games and 71 percentage points ahead of Future Wax.
Turns out it only tied the record, set by Ryan Dempster & Estaban Loaiza, both of whom were originally cut by the ill-fated Jed & Clint duo, and Matt Clement, cut by Tom. What other players have been re-drafted in the first two rounds, and how have they fared after being redrafted? Well, I’m not going to comb through 20 years of draft reports for that; doing the first two rounds was tedious enough. North Dakota led in every possible team stat category – except homers and errors. Facing only FW or ND pitching for 2000 games, here are the batting leaders: But wait! The best pitchers start more often, the sludge (Teheran was 85-168 5.83) are banished to a mop-up role. So, I decided to pit the teams into 100 best of seven series, even inputting the actual World Series starters into the Starter schedule that the computer allows for. Here are some interesting facts: North Dakota won 63 of the 100 series overall.
23 were won in 7 games 16 were won in 6 games 13 were won in 5 games And 11 of the series were 4 game sweeps.
