  • Every Team. One Champion

    I am sure if every baseball player who ever played the game, alive or gone, could get another chance at an atbat, a defensive play, or a season, they would jump at the chance. The game gives us a special feeling of youth and hope, and thats a great part of the joy of OOTP, bringing the names and the teams back to try again.

    Every baseball team is unique in its own way. There have been 2470 major league baseball teams between 1901 and 2017. My objective is to help relive each and everyone even for a moment. This is completely separate from my Excellence project, that's where the elite play, this is for the forgotten team, as well as every era played of this grand game.

    So in my mind I see the baseball Gods picking two teams out of many and giving them the chance to play again. Kind of a field of dreams that I am sure every player would jump at the chance at.

    I also love the randomness of any match up and being able to pick a team from history and actually study it to see how good or bad they really were.

    In this thread I will simply take every team in MLB history and randomly pick two for seven games series. We may see upsets or great performances, but the matchups should be interesting in any event. Its not so much about how long it will take to finish, its just the fun of the process long the way.

    This project will take a loooong time but I don't plan on leaving OOTP anytime soon. As new seasons come into play (like 2020) I will only take the top 10 teams of that season at the expense of the worst teams ever to play.

    There is a preliminary round of 422 series, to make the numbers even and go from there

    Here is the format:
    • 2470 teams from 1901 to 2019 (every team, yes every team, good and bad, from every franchise)
    • Matchups totally random
    • Preliminary round 844 teams with 422 winners
    • First round and forward 2048 teams play down to 1 winner
    • All series best of 7
    If this isnt the right place for this i apologize in advance,

          Are you able to post individual games? That could be most insightful.

            Glad you are interested, hope others are interested as well. I can post anything that you would like for see for any particular series. The games and overall stats are listed but I can post individual games also, would you be looking for box scores, summary's, or anything specific?

            Thanks

              A lot can be looked at via a boxscore...I'll read everything you put down. I suppose it depends how much effort you can/want to put in. If it is easy and not much work, I say the more the merrier. It is tough to tell a lot without looking at box scores.

              Is this method adjusted in any way? I don't see errors listed, and of course the 1910 would make a lot more due to cruddy gloves than would a 1991 team.

                Sounds good. The next series has already been simulated but starting with series 5 I will give more detail from game to game within a series. It is fascinating to me when different eras play against eachother.

                I am also keeping some stats like
                • Franchise Records
                • Records by year
                • Statistical leaders
                Its a joy to do this not work. Thanks for following.

                    Blue And Giants Handle Braves
                    Vida Blue pitched a complete game shutout in game five of this series as the 1979 San Francisco Giants impressed in a nifty win against the 1913 Braves. Blue won the game 1-0 to clinch the series against Lefty Tyler who also went the distance. A Jack Clark RBI single was the only run scored in cool Candlestick Park. The Giants swept all three games at home with Darrell Evans hitting .450 with two home runs and Clark hitting another two.

                      The Senators pick up three runs in the 7th to pick up a rusty Walter Johnson. Wid Conroy scored a run scoring triple in the inning while Jack Lelivelt made a diving catch in the 9th to end the game with the tying runners on base. No home runs in a good opening game.

                      HR: K. Elberfeld (1)
                      Kid Elberfield homered off of Noah Lowrey in the 7th inning to break up a shutout and tie the score. In the 8th Doc Gessler hammered a two run double to put the Senators on top and turn the game on its head. Its the second time the visitors came from behind to earn a road win and Dixie Walker took full charge of this game going seven strong. The Giants now head to the east coast having lost both games at home and down two games to none.

                      Dolly Gray pitched 8 innings of shutout ball and struck out six as the 1910 Senators are on the verge of sweeping away the 2005 Giants. Brett Tomko was touched up for 4 runs in the first three innings as Bob Unglaub scored twice and is hitting .364 for the series. Now Matt Cain will take the mound for the Giants in hope of surviving another day.

                      WP: D. Reisling (1-0) • LP: M. Cain (0-1) • SV: F. Oberlin (3)
                      The Senators touched up Matt Cain for three runs in the very first inning and that would be enough for winner Doc Resiling who scattered 8 hits and two runs in six innings. Doc Gessler and George McBride both doubled in runs to put the pressure on the Giants; Cain settled down but his team could not make it back. An extremely disappointing series for the 2005 Giants who were favored but instead get swept in four straight.

                        1924 Brooklyn Robins
                        Record: 92-62
                        Finish: 2nd in NL
                        Manager: Wilbert Robinson
                        Ball Park: Ebbets Field
                        WAR Leader: Dazzy Vance (10.3)
                        https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/BRO/1924.shtml

                        1928 Detroit Tigers
                        Record: 68-86

                        https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/DET/1928.shtml

                        Game 1 at Ebbets Field
                        Detroit 1928 Tigers 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 4 0
                        Brooklyn 1924 Robins 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 X 2 7 0

                        HR: P. Hargrave


                        Dazzy Vance shows why he is the ace of the Robins as he goes the distance striking out six and allowing only four hits i a fine pitching duel. A Zack Wheat RBI triple that was followed by a Jack Fournier RBI single tallied two in the first inning for the home side and that would be enough against a very hard luck loser Earl Whitehill.

                        Game 2 at Ebbets Field
                        Detroit 1928 Tigers 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 2 7 0

                        WP: D. Ruether (1-0) LP: O. Carroll (0-1)

                        Another tight pitchers duel with the Tigers throwing out their ace this time but in the end the Tigers come up short again and lose both games in Brooklyn. Zack Wheat added another two hits and an RBI and Dutch Ruether battled to the final out showing a calm demener in a big game. Now the Tigers are up against it as they head back home looking like a lesser team even as both games have been close.

                        Game 3 At Navin Field
                        Brooklyn 1924 Robins 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 2 9 0
                        Detroit 1928 Tigers 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 7 0
                        WP: B. Grimes (1-0) LP: G. Smith (0-1)
                        HR: J. Fournier 2 (2)


                        Jack Fournier hit a 404 foot home run in the top of the 11th inning, it was his second of the game and the game winner as the 1924 Robins win their third game of the series, all by one run. Ken Holloway pitched extremely well but made two mistakes to the big first baseman while Burleigh Grimes went all 11 innings for the win striking out four on 139 pitches.Now the Robins can go for the sweep in game four with Rube Ehrhardt taking the mound.

                        Game 4 at Navin Field
                        Brooklyn 1924 Robins 1 0 3 0 0 0 4 0 2 6 16 18 1
                        Detroit 1928 Tigers 0 0 1 2 5 0 0 1 1 3 13 21 1
                        WP: R. Yarrison (1-0) LP: G. Smith (0-2)
                        HR: Z. Wheat 2 (2), B. Fothergill (1), P. Hargrave (2), J. Tavener (1)


                        What can you say about this game? The Robins clinch the sweep in an absolute wild one that went 10 innings and saw the Robins score six times in the top of the frame to hold on 16-13. Zack Wheat capped a outstanding series with two home tuns including one inside the park. Andy High scored four runs and Tommy Griffith drove in three off the bench. The Tigers had 21 hits in the loss but their pitching imploded in this scorefest. A great series sweep by the Robins who prove a point and easily take apart a team from their own era.

                          Since you are posting the line score, is it much more effort for the full box scores? They would really help.
