Would it be too much work to post the stat leaders at the end of each round or at the end of the tournament?  Do you have the totals in a database that would allow you to sort easily?  That would be interesting.

John-

No its not too much to ask to post the stats as that is the most fascinating part of doing this. All of the stats are in an excel file and I can acess them if you have particular questions like this one.

The steals leaders are as follows:

Honus Wagner 05 Pirates - 7
Rickey Henderson 81 A's - 6
Josh Clarke 08 Nats - 6
Sam Mertes 03 Giants - 6
8 other players are tied with 5

  Hope thats what you were looking for.

*Preliminary Round*



1909 Chicago Cubs over 1949 St. Louis Cardinals
Four games to three
MVP: Joe Tinker (.310, 3 SB, 1 RBI)
 
Maybe the most even series we have seen came down to the 9th inning of the final game. With the game tied at two the 46 Cardinals scored two in the top of the ninth to take a 4-2 lead and were three outs away from closing things out. In the bottom of the frame however Frank Chance doubled and with one out Jimmy Archer drove him in and then strole second base. Harry Steinfeldt tied the game with a single and then Del Howard, a pinch hitter hit a ground rule double then ended in the seats and plated the winning run. The Cardinals had collapsed and a great series was over.
 
No team won two in a row as both teams alternated wins to the last game. Pitching was the name of the game including a 1-0 shutout by Ed Ruelbach in game three. Stan Musial batted .321 for the Cards who hit in streaks in this series and found away against the tough Chicago starter including keeping Three Finger Brown and Orvall Overall with ERA’s over four. The two rivals battled it out to the last pitch but the Cubs of this era were a gritty bunch that didn’t quit and found a dramatic way in the end.

*Preliminary Round*



1941 Boston Red Sox over 1932 Pittsburgh Pirates
Four games to two
MVP: Joe Cronin (.480, 1 HR, 11 RBI)
 
Wow can this team hit! The 1941 Boston Red Sox lead of course by Ted Williams in his prime put together a heck of an offensive series and sent the 1932 Pirates packing. The Red Sox hit .346 as a team in six games and scored 49 runs including a 14-1 thrashing in the deciding game where they had 20 hits in total. The pitching was good as well especially from starter Charlie Wagner who had two wins and allowed only one run in 14 innings of work, but its was the bats of the Red Sox that will remain the talking point.
 
Williams did his usual thing batting .480 for the series all the while being pitched around. Still by no means was Williams alone as Joe Cronin matched him at .480 and Jimmie Foxx hit a whopping .545. Foxx was the hero in the clincher going 5-6 and showing that with maturity he may have lost some of his power, but still can hit as well as ever. The Pirates hit the ball well (.298) and even won two out of three at Fenway but dropped them all at Forbes field and just couldn’t get Boston out.

*Preliminary Round*



1934 NY Yankees over 1989 Chicago Cubs
Four games to 1
MVP: Lou Gehrig (.438, 2 HR, 4 RBI)
 
Murderer’s Row may be towards the end of their career, but they definitely had enough pop to beat the 1989 Cubs and move on. The series was a lot closer then the end result would indicate with the Cub bats coming to play as well. In fact in game one the Cubs pulled off a feat when they hit back to back to back home runs in a 7-2 win behind Greg Maddux. The Yankees evened the series and then in game three in Chicago Babe Ruth hit two home runs and drove in five as New York won. Game four was the best of the bunch going 13 inning after the Cubs fought back and tied the game with two out in the bottom of the ninth on a Shawon Dunston home run. Tony Lazzeri however eventually had the winning blow in the 13th. In the clincher it was pitcher Johnny Allen who struck out 10 and ended the series. The Cubs lost all three games at Wrigley Field.
 
Ruth and Lou Gehrig combined for 4 home runs and 10 RBI and also earned a ton of walks. Dunston batted .455 for the Cubs including three home runs but Mark Grace (.211) and Ryne Sandberg (.143) had a tough time of it. It is something about the Babe and Wrigley Field that gets legends going.

*Preliminary Round*



1923 Cincinnati Reds over 1991 Chicago White Sox
Four games to two
MVP: Dolf Luque (1-0, 1.69 ERA, 10 K)
 
It came down to pitching for the 23 Reds in this series and in especially the games that they won, they did not allow the White Sox to score more then two runs. Dolf  Luque and Eppa Rixey were excellent in the four games that they started and Rixey got the job done in the clincher when they needed it the most. The White Sox also pitched well but not good enough, Black Jack McDowell lost both the games he started despite having a 2.12 ERA in the two outings.
 
Ike Caveney maybe had the biggest hit if the series when his late two run home run in game three gave the Reds the win and broke an even series that propelled the Reds to win three in a row. The Sox big bats of Frank Thomas and Sammy Sosa were of little effect and Tim Raines at the top of the Sox lineup ended with a meager average of .120 without a single steal.

*Preliminary Round*



1974 Cincinnati Reds over 1904 NY Highlanders
Four games to two
MVP: Johnny Bench (.321, 1 HR, 8 HR)
 
The Big Red Machine shows off its muscles against the old 04 Highlander pitching who had a really rocky road other then their ace Jack Chesbro who struck out 14 and won twice. Jack Powell in his two starts ended with an ERA close to 10 and the entire New York team allowed an opposing batting average at .303. Dave Conception and Joe Morgan combined for 17 hits in six games and Conception also stole five bases from the top of the order. MVP Johnny Bench hit .321 and also played his usual outstanding craft at catching.
 
The Highlanders were a different team with Chesbro on the mound as they won the opener and both his starts. The Reds however won the rest as Don Gullett made a claim for man of the series with two complete game wins, including the clincher that turned into a laugher ending 12-0. Great things can be expected by the Reds of this era and in this series we got our first glimpse of it.

1976 Philadelphia Phillies over 2008 Chicago Cubs
Four games to three
MVP: Jay Johnston (.357, 1 HR, 11 RBI)
 
This series had it all and went down to the wire but in the final game at Veterans Stadium it was the Phillies that broke out against the Cubs bullpen late to win the game. The Cubs bullpen was just terrible all series and cost the Cubs at least two wins; for example Bob Howry and Michael Wuertz combined to allow 18 runs in 4.2 innings of work. Pitching as a whole for the series was missing as even aces like Steve Carlton had an ERA of 6.00 and both teams had issues getting people out. The only stand out start came in game three at Wrigley Field where Jim Londborg pitched six shutout innings and the Phils shutout the Cubs 7-0.
 
The batting heroes were many. Larry Bowa in 36 at bats batted .500 and stole four bases while playing excellent defense; Bowa was supurb at the top of the lineup. Even pinch hitters were on display as Ollie Brown went 4-5 off the bench and Jim Edmonds hit two home runs. Probably the most excitement in a series we have seen yet.

Great thread, I can't wait to see how this plays out.

As a side note, it looks like the 2008 Cubs beat the Phillies in this series.  They won games 2, 4, 5, and 6.

Yes sorry about that. The Phillies actually won game number 5 at Wrigley Field 11-4. I will make the correction on the original.

Thanks!
