Chicago Cubs Hold On To #1 Spot

1907 Cubs Are #1 For 2nd Year In A Row The 1907 Chicago Cubs hold on to the #1 spot after completing the sixth season of the Epic Scenario, The .600 Club. Using the statistical probabilities from 1905, we continue our journey through the dead ball era. As expected, the teams of that era are performing well, but there have been a some surprising teams which have also been successful. As I mentioned, the 1907 Chicago Cubs keep their top ranking. This season, the Cubs got into the playoffs as a wild card at the Major League level, finishing the

The 1927 Yankees Are Not The Best Ever

Yes. You read the title correctly. The 1927 New York Yankees are NOT the best team to ever play baseball. I’m sure I ruffled a few purist feathers with that statement, but bear with me and I’ll explain. I run a lot of simulations, both for fun and for this website. Whenever I run anything with the 1927 New York Yankees, they almost always seem to disappoint. Their downfall? Great pitching. If you have a team with great pitching, the ’27 Yankees are prone to underachieve. Murderers Row doesn’t seem as intimidating in those situations and it made me wonder

Cubs Take Over Top Spot As Giants Falter

The fifth season of the .600 Club has been completed using 1904 statistics and there is a new top team. The 1907 Chicago Cubs have taken over the top spot as the previous #1, the 1905 New York Giants, faltered and finished just under .500 (80-82) and didn’t make the playoffs at the Major League level. They lost first baseman Dan McGann for the season in mid-May to injury, while catcher Frank Bowerman missed half the season with three separate injuries. Center fielder Mike Donlin had three stints on the DL during the season, while shortstop Bill Dahlen was injured

Replaying the 1981 Season

We’re replaying the 1981 season. Why? Well, after posting about the 1994 baseball strike, I got to thinking about other years of my youth where labor strikes disrupted my passion for baseball. So, baseball’s mid-season strike which divided the season into two halves seemed like an obvious choice. Now, anyone who knows me knows I don’t care for the split-season format. It’s used in the minors and it wouldn’t even be there if I could do anything about it. It’s an invitation for a team to tank after winning the first half, knowing they’re going to the playoffs anyway. In

1905 New York Giants Do It Again

The 1905 New York Giants do it again, finishing on top of our rankings for the fourth straight season. The Epic Scenario, The .600 Club, has just completed its fourth season, 1903. As expected, the early teams of baseball are excelling. Why? Because they were built for the deadball era. As for the 1905 New York Giants, they are making a strong case for themselves as the best team of the deadball era. Now, that may be a bit premature to say after only four seasons, but the deadball era will only last through the 1920 season. The Giants finished

2016 Major League Playoff Predictions

Will Your Team Make It To The Playoffs?                     Well, we’re a couple of weeks into the 2016 season. How’s your team doing? Better than expected? Worse? I don’t put a lot of faith in preseason predictions. I want to see the teams play when the games count and then I’ll decide whether they’re worth all the hype, or just hype. Besides, too many things can happen; injuries, trades, below or above average performances by players. Usually when I write about baseball and simulating events, they focus on past events and

The 1905 New York Giants Are Still The Best

The third season of the Epic Scenario, The .600 Club, is now complete and the 1905 New York Giants are still the best, staying at the top of the poll for the third consecutive season. The Giants posted a Major League best record of 104-58, but were upset in the playoffs by the eventual champs, the 1907 Chicago Cubs. The Cubs find themselves now in the #2 position in the poll after completion of the 1902 season. Here’s the Top 25 teams after three seasons, with their previous rank (or NR for Not Ranked): 1905 New York Giants (1) 1907

Finishing The 1994 Season

In 1994, I was just getting out of college and trying to pursue a career. I had grown up following baseball and rooting for my St. Louis Cardinals. They had success in the 1980’s, but the 1990’s were proving to be a little more difficult. Regardless, as a true fan, I followed baseball and my team with passion. As the 1994 season progressed, my Cardinals weren’t doing as well as I would have liked. Then August 12th came and the season ended abruptly. The players had gone on strike and the owners were not budging either. When the season was

1905 New York Giants hold top spot for 2nd consecutive season

I have completed the second season of the Epic Scenario, The .600 Club, played in the year 1901. Champions have been crowned on all eighteen levels of this epic league and some teams are preparing to either be promoted or relegated based on their performance. There’s a lot of volatility in the rankings, but as the seasons progress, I would expect that the rankings will change less. The biggest jumper in the rankings are the 1935 Detroit Tigers. The Tigers had a poor showing in 1900, posting a 68-72 record in the Southern League (AA). That performance got them relegated to the Florida

The Lost World Series of 1904

The first World Series was played in 1903 when the Boston Americans of the American League defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates of the National League five games to three. The stage was set for another “world’s championship” match-up in 1904 as the season was drawing to a close. In the American League, the Boston Americans were in a fight for the pennant with the New York Highlanders, with both teams agreeing to play against the National League if they became champions. But, the National League’s New York Giants owner John Brush, and manager John McGraw, would have nothing to do with it.
