1985 MLB Season Replay (SOM Style)

General Notes:

The 1985 season replay is ready to roll. A few notes before we get started:

- I am not trying to do an "As Played" simulation, in fact I can't. The 1985 season disk i have doesn't have every player that participated so there are quite a few gaps that have to be filled.

- I have tried to limit over-usage as much as i can, and especially where limited sample size players could have a significant impact on results if allowed to spam the league. However, like the note mentioned above - that doesn't mean some players won't get more playing time and those players could impact the overall results

- Some teams are going to be very limited in some areas, commonly the bullpen. Because so many teams in 1985 allowed starters to pitch in relief, the number of arms available in the pen is often small. This is a problem because by scheduling all the rotations for the season there is no way for the game to know to "protect" a pitcher because they have a start coming up. This means I effectively have to set the pitcher to not be allowed to relieve, which in turn cuts the number of arms available in the pen down. So if you see some bullpen pitchers with high inning totals, that is probably why.

- I loaded the schedule from retrosheet so it is the real one that was used.

- I don't do all-star games in the middle of the season, I do them at the end and I make it a best of 7 series, there is a mid season break though.

- I have injuries turned on, but to the best of my recollection, the game only does up to 15 games.

- I'm using max rules - Weather, Clutch, Pitch Fatigue, etc.

- I've run several test seasons to insure i don't have any severe usage problems, and based on results i would be surprised if all 4 of the real division winners come out on top in this replay. In fact, all 4 have lost multiple times in my test runs.

- I am not planning to get actively involved in the games. The plan is for the games to auto-play. Any adjustments I might make would be in changing the team set up configuration, or picking a spot starter in the event of an injury.

If you have any questions let me know...

NEWSPAPER GAME STORIES FOR 1985 AMERICAN LEAGUE
Date: 4/2/1985


Code:
TEXAS AT BALTIMORE Rangers......... 0 0 1 2 0 0 0 0 0 - 3 9 1 Orioles......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 0 2 0 Win:Hough(1-0) Loss:McGregor(0-1) Homeruns- S.Buechele(1st) Steve Buechele homered and Charlie Hough was on top of his game, blanking Baltimore on just 2 hits at MEMORIAL STADIUM as the Texas Rangers beat the Baltimore Orioles 3 to 0. Hough(1-0) was indeed brilliant as he hand-cuffed the Baltimore offense. He didn't give up much, just 2 hits and 2 walks in 9 innings. Neither team managed to score after the 4th inning. The losing pitcher was Scott McGregor(0-1). 'I've been working on a few things in my delivery, and I think I'm hitting a good groove.' Hough said after the game. 'I'm ready to start another game tomorrow!' [1]NEW YORK AT BOSTON Yankees......... 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 011 - 12 18 0 Red Sox......... 0 0 0 0 1 0 7 2 4 - 14 14 1 Win:Clear(1-0) Loss:Righetti(0-1) Homeruns- R.Henderson(1st), M.Pagliarulo(1st), B.Wynegar(1st), R.Hassey(1st), D.Evans(1st), G.Hoffman(1st) Glenn Hoffman collected 4 RBI with one swing of the bat as the Boston Red Sox won in dramatic fashion over the New York Yankees by a score of 14 to 12 at FENWAY PARK. Boston won the game with a rally in the 9th inning when they tallied 4 runs on 3 hits. The crucial at-bat was provided by Dwight Evans who brought a roar from the partisan FENWAY PARK fans when he cracked a two-run shot (his 1st of the season). Despite losing, New York out-hit Boston 18 to 14. Mark Clear(1-0) got the win allowing 2 runs in 2/3 of an inning. Dave Righetti(0-1) was given the loss in relief. He allowed 2 hits and 1 walk in 1/3 of an inning. [1]CLEVELAND AT DETROIT Indians......... 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 1 7 2 Tigers.......... 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 1 - 3 8 1 Win:Morris(1-0) Loss:Easterly(0-1) Save:Hernandez(1st) Homeruns- B.Garbey(1st) Jack Morris dominated striking out 10 Cleveland batters as the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians by a score of 3 to 1. Morris(1-0) gave a fine effort for Detroit. He allowed 7 hits and 3 walks in 7 and 2/3 innings. Willie Hernandez was perfect in relief and got the save, his 1st.

General Update

With just the one game in the NL on 4/1, I didn't see a need to post the newspaper style updates.

This is basically how I was planning to post results, as if you were reading them in the paper on a daily basis. I wasn't planning to post box scores from every team/every game - that would be a bit much. I was also planning to do a "game of the week" (or maybe more frequently), where you will get the write up like the one for the Expos v Reds above. I'm planning to get caught up with the real date today and then roll through the schedule 1 day at a time. If you have any suggestions or requests let me know and I'll see what I can do.

MINNESOTA AT CALIFORNIA Twins........... 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 0 0 - 3 11 1 Angels.......... 0 0 0 3 0 0 1 0 - 4 8 0 Win:Lugo(1-0) Loss:Blyleven(0-1) Save:Moore(1st) Homeruns- R.Smalley(1st), R.Carew(1st) The California Angels nipped the Minnesota Twins 4 to 3 at ANAHEIM STADIUM in a hard fought contest. Rafael Lugo(1-0) came on to close the door tight in relief. He performed flawlessly in relief in his 2/3 of an inning. Minnesota had a chance in the 9th but they came up short. Donnie Moore recorded the save, his 1st. Bert Blyleven(0-1) was tagged with the loss. Ray Miller was reflective after the loss, 'We should have won this one, we just made one too many mistakes. Son-of-a-gun, that added a couple more white hairs on this noggin of mine.' CHICAGO AT MILWAUKEE White Sox....... 0 0 0 5 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 - 6 10 2 Brewers......... 0 0 2 2 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 - 5 10 3 Win:Spillner(1-0) Loss:Gibson(0-1) Homeruns- C.Cooper(1st) Dan Spillner delivered 4 and one third solid innings at COUNTY STADIUM where the Chicago White Sox beat the Milwaukee Brewers in 11 innings 6 to 5. The game was deadlocked at 5 after nine full innings. Chicago came out the victor in the 11th inning. Oscar Gamble drew a walk. Bob Gibson then let a pitch get away from him. Daryl Boston then doubled scoring the run. Both teams ended up with 10 on the afternoon. Spillner(1-0) went 4 and 1/3 innings allowing no runs for the win. Gibson(0-1) suffered the loss in relief. He allowed 2 hits and 1 walk in 3 and 2/3 innings. OAKLAND AT SEATTLE A's............. 3 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 - 4 8 1 Mariners........ 1 2 2 6 0 1 4 0 - 16 17 0 Win:Moore(1-0) Loss:Codiroli(0-1) Homeruns- M.Davis(1st), A.Davis(1st), J.Presley(1st), A.Cowens(1st), D.Henderson-2(2nd) Mike Moore went the distance and Al Cowens blasted a homerun and had 5 RBI as the Seattle Mariners clobbered the outmatched Oakland A's, 16 to 4. Cowens provided much of the offense. He cracked a two-run shot (his 1st of the season) in the 3rd inning and doubled with all three runners coming home in the 4th inning. Seattle bats were very productive in the 4th inning with 6 runs on 4 hits and the 7th inning which saw them plate 4 runs on 5 hits. Seattle dominated offensively as they scored in 6 different innings. Moore(1-0) picked up the complete game victory, allowing 4 runs. The losing pitcher was Chris Codiroli(0-1). He was knocked around by Seattle, allowing 10 hits and 3 walks in 3 and 2/3 innings.

I specifically voted '85 for Pedro Guerrero and Dale Murphy... they both hit HR in their first game (Pedro,2!)...

I'd say it's off to a good start!

The win went to Tim Burke(1-0) who allowed no runs in 1 and 1/3 innings. Ted Power(0-1) ended up with the loss in relief. Buck Rodgers was all smiles after the game, 'To pull a game out in your last at bats, is a beautiful feeling - and did you see how quiet it got out there?

Sunday Night Baseball

Welcome to Sunday Night Baseball. We have the defending National League champs in Atlanta taking on Dale Murphy and the Braves. It should be a good one. Here are today's line ups:

For the Padres

Royster - 2b
Gwynn - rf
Garvey - 1b
Martinez - lf
McReynolds - cf
Kennedy - c
Bevacqua - 3b
Templeton - ss
and on the mound Dave Dravecky

the Braves have:

Washington - rf
Oberkfell - 3b
Murphy - cf
Horner - 1b
Harper - lf
Cerone - C
Hubbard - 2b
Ramirez - ss

and just now finishing his warm up pitches is Zane Smith...

We are ready to go, Royster steps in and...

Fastball, way high
Ball four
Smith walks him
Zane is certainly not known
for his control

Royster stretches his lead
Royster does not get a good lead

Tony Gwynn squares to bunt
Oberkfell fields it, THEN DROPS THE BALL!
Oberkfell picks it up and fires to first
Gwynn is out by an eyelash
Credit Gwynn with a sacrifice
One down for San Diego
Steve Garvey is still in
the on-deck circle
and Carmelo Martinez is looking
for a bat in the dugout

Base hit to left for Garvey
Harry Dunlop won't risk sending
the runner home...
Runner holds.

Martinez drives the ball to
left for extra bases
Royster scores
Harry Dunlop won't risk sending
the runner home...
Double for Martinez

McReynolds flies out to left
Harry Dunlop will send the runner home...
The throw is coming home...
Garvey scores!

Struck him out on a terrible pitch
That bounced in front of the plate!
and Kennedy couldn't hold up his swing!
Almost broke his back trying though...
That will do it for San Diego
But they do get 2 runs
right out of the barrel
So San Diego leads 2 to zip
as Atlanta comes to bat

Swing and a miss
Struck him out
Number 1 on the season for Dravecky

Off speed pitch on the way...
And Oberkfell watches it go
by for the third strike

It's a high fly into center
McReynolds ranges to his right
Reaches up, and takes it for the easy out
Atlanta comes up empty here
in the bottom of the 1st
No runs, no hits and no errors
After 1 inning,

Bill Swift(0-1) was the loser. He was hit hard and gave up 9 hits and 2 walks in 5 and 1/3 innings.

Texas kept the scorekeepers busy in the 3rd inning when they had 5 runs on 7 hits and the 4th inning which saw them plate 4 runs on 3 hits. Texas dominated offensively as they scored in 6 different innings. The winning pitcher was Hough(2-0) who allowed 4 runs for the game. Moose Haas(0-1) was hit with the loss.

Both teams were tied at 4 runs apiece after nine innings. San Francisco was victorious in the 10th inning. After two were out Chili Davis got things rolling when he drew a walk. Jeff Leonard came next and he drew a walk. Ron Roenicke then laced a single resulting in a run. Bob Brenly came up and he stroked a base-hit scoring the final run of the inning. Although they lost, Los Angeles did out-hit San Francisco 12 to 9. Greg Minton(1-0) got credit for the victory, pitching 1 inning and allowing no runs. Minton was helped out by Mark Davis who recorded his 2nd save. The losing pitcher was Bobby Castillo(0-1) in relief.

Fernandez(1-0) gave a fine effort for New York. He went 9 innings surrendering 9 hits and 2 walks. Cincinnati made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across. Jay Tibbs(0-1) suffered the loss. He pitched 5 and 1/3 innings allowing 6 hits and no walks. 'It's a disheartening loss, no question about it' said Pete Rose 'But we have to get over it and get ready for the next game.' ST.

He allowed a few too many baserunners giving up 10 hits and 3 walks in 3 and 2/3 innings. Whitey Herzog was upset after the game. 'I don't like to complain but did you see that umpires strike zone?', he said. 'Maybe they ought to start calling the strike zone the way it's printed in the rule book.'

CINCINNATI AT NEW YORK Reds............ 0 0 0 1 0 2 0 2 0 - 5 9 0 Mets............ 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 - 2 8 0 Win:Soto(1-0) Loss:Gooden(1-1) Save:Power(1st) Homeruns- G.Redus-2(2nd), D.Parker(2nd), M.Wilson(1st), G.Carter(3rd) Mario Soto mowed down 10 New York batters and Gary Redus blasted 2 homeruns and had 3 RBI at SHEA STADIUM as the Cincinnati Reds beat the New York Mets by the count of 5 to 2. The New York fans didn't appreciate the big day Redus had. He smashed a solo-shot out of the park in the 4th inning, doubled resulting in a run in the 6th inning and blasted a solo shot (his 2nd of the season) in the 8th inning. Cincinnati banged out 9 on the afternoon. The win was credited to Soto(1-0) who went 7 and 1/3 innings allowing 2 runs. Soto got help from Ted Power who earned his 1st save. Dwight Gooden(1-1) absorbed the loss. He allowed 3 homeruns in 8 innings of work. Soto, when asked about his 10 strikeout performance noted, 'The important thing is that we won, if I get 20 and we lose, what good does it do our team? But, on the other hand, since we won it feels great!' ST. LOUIS AT PITTSBURGH Cardinals....... 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 - 2 10 0 Pirates......... 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 - 1 6 0 Win:Andujar(1-0) Loss:Rhoden(0-1) Save:Lahti(1st) Homeruns- B.Almon(1st) Joaquin Andujar(1-0) and Rick Rhoden(0-1) treated the Pittsburgh fans to a fine pitching duel at THREE RIVERS STADIUM. The St. Louis Cardinals eventually emerged as victors over the Pittsburgh Pirates by the score of 2 to 1. Andujar pitched a solid game. He went 5 innings surrendering 3 hits and no walks lowering his ERA to 2.70. Pittsburgh threatened in the 9th but their rally came up short. Andujar got help from Jeff Lahti who was credited with his 1st save. Chuck Tanner was reflective after the loss, 'We should have won this one, we just made one too many mistakes. Son-of-a-gun, that added a couple more white hairs on this noggin of mine.'

Toronto scored the deciding run in the bottom of the 9th inning. George Bell smashed a solo-shot out of the park (his 1st of the season) resulting in a mighty exciting win for Toronto and the 26,448 home town fans in attendance. Toronto had only 6 hits for the game. Key(1-0) was credited with the shutout. Mike Mason(0-2) was charged with the loss. Toronto continued their winning ways, with their streak now at 7 games and counting.

Raps a hard ground ball
right at Fernandez...
He snares it easily, throws to first...
Out by a step
One down for Texas
Toby Harrah is in the on-deck circle
ready to make his way to
the plate for Texas

Harrah swings and lifts one toward center
Moseby drifts over slowly...
He is under it now...
And makes the easy catch...
And there's two away

Fly ball to right
Barfield is under it
This should do it...
He makes the grab

After one-half inning
It's Texas nothing, the
Blue Jays coming up

Fly ball to right
Wright is under it
He grabs it for the out

Moseby takes a cut at the slider...
There's a line drive...
Going over the head of Oddibe McDowell
My word! Look at that ball go!!

That's a home run!!

And that left the yard in a hurry
Hooton can't believe it
Homer number 3 for Lloyd Moseby this year
To go with his 7 RBI's

It's popped in the air
It'll be the first baseman,
O'Brien, making the play
That is the second out here
in the bottom of the 1st
Wilkerson comes in to kibitz with Hooton
While we have a moment,
let me set the outfield distances for you
It's 318 feet down the line in left
399 feet to left-center
408 feet to straight-away center field
Then over in right-center
it's 385 feet from home plate
and 314 feet to the right field foul pole

Breaking ball, in on the hands
Upshaw swings at...
Pounds the ball into the ground
It's a one bouncer into the hole
Tolleson ranging over stabs it
Strong throw to first...
GOT HIM!!!
Upshaw is out by an eyelash
What a play!
We've played through the first inning
here at EXHIBITION STADIUM
So far...
Toronto on top 1 to 0

Parrish pops one straight up
And it will be Whitt making the play
One down for Texas
Gary Ward is in the on-deck circle
ready to make his way to
the plate for Texas

Hits a high fly to deep center
Moseby bolting after it...
It is carrying all the way to the fence
Moseby jumps for it...
IT CAROMS OFF THE fence!!
Ward heading for second...
Here's the strong throw
It's on the money...
Garcia blocks it in front of him...
Ward is safe!
That will be scored a double

There's a high foul pop behind the plate
Whitt goes back to the screen
No play, it goes into the seats
Just missed the screen
. . . Slaught back in the box
And here comes the next pitch
Slaught rips one on the ground
It's a 'daisy cutter' to Fernandez
Tony fields it cleanly
Looks Ward back to second
Now fires it over to first...
Easy out
That's the second out of the inning

It's in on the wrists
Wayne tried to hold up
Now it appears he will be awarded first...
Yes, Clancy walks him

A slider by Clancy
Wilkerson gets good wood on it...
Moseby back-pedals quickly...
Up with his glove...
Out!
That retires the side...
Wilkerson fails to come
through in the clutch
For Texas, No runs, one hit, no
errors and 2 men left on base

Caught looking... Barfield
goes down on strikes
And looks bad doing it to start
off the bottom of the 2nd

and Willie Upshaw is looking
for a bat in the dugout

Grounded towards the sack
O'Brien takes it to the bag himself
Score It: 3
That's two away

There's a routine pop by Upshaw
Wilkerson moves under it and
makes the routine catch
That is the third out for Toronto here
in the last of the seventh
The attendance has just been
announced at 27064

Wilkerson swings and it's
a drive to right-center
Moseby is after it, but he
won't catch this one
It one hops off the wall
Moseby bobbles it a second
That's enough for Wilkerson
He's heading for third
The throw is not in time.. .
Curtis Wilkerson slides in safely!
BOOM!
A nice start here in the top
of the 8th for Texas
Triple for Wilkerson, 1 on the year
No error on the play

Bobby Jones is swinging a bat
He'll come up to hit for George Wright

Bobby Jones hits a medium deep fly ball
Jesse Barfield lines up his
throw to the plate
He makes the catch
Appears to lose his balance
and his throw goes wide
Jones gets an RBI on the sac fly
Toronto gets the first out
here late in this contest

Inside slider, on the fists...
Swung on...
It's a high bounding ball...
Through the infield into
center by McDowell
That's 2 hits for McDowell this game

McDowell studies Caudill intently...
Now he's walking away from the base
McDowell breaks for second on the slider
The peg...
SAFE, as McDowell slides around the tag
Give him a stolen base

Lined hard to third
Mulliniks leaps
He makes a nice play on it
He throws to Garcia
OUT!
Double Play!
Score It: 5-4
And that will do it for Texas
Texas' defensive changes are...
Jones will bat 9th and play RF
Bannister will bat 2nd and play 2B

Grounded down the line
O'Brien to Rozema covering first
Score It: 3-1

Slider, inside...
Swung on...
Whitt rocks this one...
He got all of it...
It's going... Going...
GONE!
Man, he really crunched it!
Rozema looks dejected on the mound

Bobby Valentine is visiting the mound...
He decides to let Rozema pitch to Whitt
Rance Mulliniks swings
There it goes, way back
towards right-center
Jones looks up
Kiss that one good bye!!
A long, long home run for Mulliniks

Pop-up
Slaught throws away the mask
He makes the catch
Two men gone, nobody on
Toronto leads by 3

Slow ground ball
Wilkerson is charging it
HE DROPS IT!
That's an error
That's error number 1 of
the game for Texas

LINE DRIVE
O'Brien jumps
He snares it for the out!
Score It: 3
That's all for the Blue Jays
in the bottom of the 8th
They get 2 runs
After 8 innings, Toronto on top 5 to 2
Bobby Cox will be bringing
in a relief pitcher
Tom Henke has been called from the bullpen
A few warm up tosses and
we'll be set to go

Breaking ball...
It darts down and out
as O'Brien swings way over it
He was fooled completely
Whitt loses it momentarily,
but now finds the handle and tags
Pete as he was heading for the dugout
One away
While we wait for the next batter
Let's see what's happening in other games
These scores are final...
Baltimore nipped Cleveland 10 to 9
Detroit edged out Milwaukee 4 to 3
Cooper has hit his 2nd homerun
for Milwaukee
Boston gets an easy win over
Kansas City 7 to 1
Jackson takes the loss, his
record drops to 0-1
Clemens the winner, he's now 1-0
Minnesota cuffed California 3 to 0
Oakland gets an easy win
over Seattle 11 to 5
Codiroli the winner, he's now 1-2
Swift takes the loss, his
record drops to 0-2

Comebacker, right to Henke
Over to Upshaw for the easy out
Two gone for Texas
Time is running out for them

Ward hits a three hopper
towards Tony Fernandez
Fernandez scoops it and fires
it to first for the out
And that will do it for Texas
Toronto wins 5 to 2
Clancy gets credit for the win
Henke notches the save
Hooton takes the loss
The hitting star for Toronto
was Lloyd Moseby
He was 2 for 4 with a homerun
And that wraps things up
So long from Toronto.
