*Preliminary Round*




1973 Cincinnati Reds over 1919 Cleveland Indians
Four games to three
MVP: Pete Rose (.464, 1 HR, 9 RBI)
 
Drama to the last moment as the Reds team of this era wins again and does so in the most dramatic of fashions with a walk off hit in the final game. Dan Driessen drove in the winning run on a close play in the 10th inning of game seven. The Reds in that game had fought back from a 5-3 deficit when Pete Rose hit a dramatic two run home run. Overall in the series the fight back for the Reds was even more impressive as they won three in a row after being down 3-1 in the series, the last two games at Riverfront were memorable. In game six no name pinch hitter Andy Kosco hit a pinch hit grand slam to break open a tight game. Sparky Anderson pulled out all the stops and was able to break Cleveland’s hearts in a great series.
 
Pete Rose was a terror at the plate in this series as was Joe Morgan and Dave Conception who combined for 7 steals and played fine defense. Elmer Smith for the tribe drove in nine and had a dramatic home run in game one. Tris Speaker was a letdown having only five hits and four RBI for the series.

I love seeing the old team logos, where did you find them, at oldbaseballteamlogos.com? The 1971 Oakland A's logo even had their famous white shoes on the logo.

I get these particular logos from Baseball reference and their bullpen page. If you do enough looking all of the logos are there. Yes and I love the old logos too, I love the Pirate logo of the 70's....

*Preliminary Round*


1962 Minnesota Twins over 2002 Atlanta Braves
Four games to three
MVP: Harmon Killebrew (.290, 5 HR, 8 RBI)
 
The 62 Twins were a team that didn’t win as much as their opponents the 2002 Braves but proved that in a series that starts even, any team can win no matter what the past or resume. In a hard fought seven game series the Twins found a way to win and had dramatic performances when they needed them. For instance Harmen Killebrew became the first player in this competition to hit three home runs in one game as he did it in the opening win against Tom Glavine. Glavine had a miserable series losing the opener and losing the clincher in game seven. In game seven Killebrew went deep again but it was short stop Zoilo Versalles who drove in four and hit a three run home run in the comfortable 9-2 win.
 
The Braves has two good wins behind Greg Maddux and Julio Franco batted .480 while Chipper Jones drove in eight. A shaky bullpen and a 5.07 team ERA however was not what Bobby Cox was looking for. What else is new however as the strong Atlanta Braves on paper just cant win the big series when it counts the most.

*Preliminary Round*



1916 Chicago White Sox over 1947 St. Louis Cardinals
Four games to three
MVP: Ray Schalk (.346, 4 RBI, 5 SB)
 
The 16 White Sox came back from a 3-1 game deficit to win three games in a row capped by an impressive shutout in game seven by their ace Lefty Williams to win this series. The Sox who looked dead at times put it all together and played the type of small ball along with timely pitching that makes teams of this era so tough to beat. Red Russell won two of the games out of the bullpen in what was a very even series.
 
The Cardinals pitched great at Sportman’s park, throwing two shutouts in a row in games 3 and four including a tense and impressive 1-0 win lead by the arm of Murry Dickson. St. Louis didn’t have the finishing touch however in a series where such stars like Stan Musial and Joe Jackson were non impressive and non factors which both hitting around .250. The Sox stole 12 bases in the series and made the most of their baserunners despite being outhit in the series. The Cards hit .333 as a team but still lost.

*Preliminary Round *


1908 New York Giants over 1932 Philadelphia A’s
Four games to two
MVP: Cy Seymour (.385, 1 HR, 9 RBI)
 
Two of the very best managers went toe to toe as Connie Mack and John McGraw battled it out in an intense series. The Giants won three games in a row to take the series and pounded Philadelphia pitching to a .330 clip. Three players had 10 hits in the series for the Giants including Roger Bresnahan who batted .417 and Cy Seymour who hit .385 including the only home run of the series. On the other hand the A’s had Al Simons and Jimie Foxx on their side as both were over .400, but the lack of balance in their lineup meant too many outs for the likes of Jimmy Dykes who batted .192 at the top of the order.
 
Christy Mathewson looked human in his first start as the A’s battered him in the opener but the Big Six would come back strong in game four holding the A’s to one run and in fact the win tied the series and was a turning factor in the series. Hooks Wiltse took care of the clincher with a solid performance in game six.

*Preliminary Round*


1933 Pittsburgh Pirates over 1939 Boston Red Sox
Four games to three
MVP: Freddie Lindstrom (.469, 1 HR, 11 RBI)
 
The bats were smoking in this series with close to 70 runs scored by the two teams combined in a series that went the distance and ended with the underdogs victors. Many thought a lineup with Ted Williams and Jimmie Foxx would be too much to put up with and in many ways it was, but names like Tony Piet and Arky Vaughn proved a lot more dangerous. The Pirates hit .349 for the duration of the seven game series and took the philosophy that is simply was going to score more runs then the Red Sox, and that they did.
 
In the opening game the Pirates had 22 hits and scored 15 runs to set the tone and then in game three, the first at Forbes Field they again pounded Red Sox pitching in a 10-0 win. Steve Swetonic pitched a shutout in game five to give the Pirates the edge heading to Boston. The Red Sox with an 11-2 win in game six but Elden Auker had a 8.08 ERA in his three starts and was run over in the game seven decider.

PRELIMINARY ROUND


1933 New York Yankees over 1961 Detroit Tigers
Four games to one
MVP: Lou Gehrig (.348, 4 HR, 10 RBI)
 
Even past their very best years the Bronx Bombers still have the muscle to impress and terrify any pitching staff. The Yankees scored 33 runs in the four games that they won batting .358 as a team and not missing a beat throughout their lineup. Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig combined for 7 home runs and 17 RBI as they are as good as everyone remembers. On the flip side the Tigers had trouble with Yankee pitching and especially that of the arm of Left Grove who won both his starts allowing only 2 earned runs in 17 innings and striking out nine.
 
The Yankees split the games at Tiger Stadium before they swept all three in the Bronx and broke open for 12 runs in the clinching game five. Ruth hit two homers in game five and drove in five runs as Paul Foytack had no chance. The Tigers did win 101 games in 1961 but just like was the case that season, the pinstripes were just too much to overcome.

Thanks thunder for the kind words

I am enjoying simming these games as much as you are enjoying following them. I apologize about the slower pace of late with the updates but I am doing this casually when I have free time. I hope everyone is enjoying revisiting the past and some of these great names and teams.

Once again thanks for the support thunder

PRELIMINARY ROUND


2008 Anaheim Angels over 1918 Washington Senators
Four games to two
MVP: Ervin Santana (1-0, 0.50 ERA, 14 K, 18 IP)
 
A series that will make pitching coaches smile this series was a lot closer then the numbers may show. Both the Angels and the Senators combined for an average around .200 and runs were at a premium against very good performances by the likes of Erwin Santana, Walter Johnson, and Joe Saunders. Only two players for the Angels hit over .200 for the series and the top RBI man for the Senators had three in the six games. The games were tight, tense, and well played and the Mike Scoiscia Angels in the end came out on top.
 
The opening game went a record 19 innings with both teams allowing only one run until a walk off single by Torri Hunter finally decided things. The Angels took the first two games in California before the Senators took two out of three on the east coast. The deciding game six back out west was dominated by Joe Sanders who pitched a shutout and matched Walter Johnson pitch by pitch. A scoreless game went to the 10th when Erik Aybar singled in Chone Figgins with the winning run of the series.

*PRELIMINARY ROUND



1999 Arizona Diamondbacks over 1944 Detroit Tigers
Four games to three
MVP: Luis Gonzalez (.303, 1 HR, 14 RBI)
 
Weird things happen at night in the desert. The Tigers fought the DBacks with everything they had and were only two outs away from moving on before a 9th inning rally in game seven gave the series to Arizona. Pinky Higgins tripled in the go ahead run and Johnny Gorsica tried the close things out before Travis Lee singled in the tying run and with the bases loaded Luis Gonzalez who drove in 14 runs for the series walked in the winning run. The Tigers had fought back after losing the first two games and even won game six after being embarrassed 15-0 in game five; still in the end it didn’t look like it was meant to be.
 
The big pitching arms on both sides were not dominant as Randy Johnson held a 5.68 ERA in three starts and Dizzy Trout had an ERA even more ugly at 6.53. It wasn’t a series for the feint of heart as crucial mistakes and major momentum swings from game to game were a big part of this series. Somehow in the end it just felt like the DBacks were not going to lose it.

1943 Cincinnati Reds over 2009 Anaheim Angels
Four games to three
MVP: Johnny Van Der Meer (2-1, 2.05 ERA, 24 K)
 
Sometimes it can be one player that takes you over the top when you need it the most in a very close series. Johnny Van der Meer was that man for the 1943 Reds as he took the mound in game seven and help off the Angels in a gutsy complete game win to end the series. Van der Meer struck out 24 men in his three starts and few pitchers in history have proven to be hotter when they have their stuff. The series had good pitching all around with Jared Weaver of the Angels doing his part; in the end however the Reds used only six pitchers for the seven games and got the most out of them.
 
The Reds won three games in California as the road team in the series won five of the seven games. At times the Angels actually looked more dangerous with Vladimir Guerrero out of their lineup as he is their full time DH. Another great series as it seems that of late all the matchups seem to be going the distance.
