My season is over and I missed the goals. The total of team + plays was 188. The team finished 88-74, 3rd in the division and 11 games back. No playoffs. Recall we played at Hilltop.
Here are the team's final "+" and "-" figures
1952 Goodman, 2B 24/2
1914 Burns 1B 27/0
1919 Fletcher SS 26/0
1973 North CF 28/1
1977 Lemon LF 16/0
1926 Douthit RF 25/0
1981 Oberkfell 3b 20/0
My Pitchers have combined for 22 plus plays. I'm still trying to figure out what went wrong. The team BA of .282 was 9th out of 24 and I was right at the league average in runs scored. My staff was very good; lead both leagues in fewest hits, fewest earned runs, was second in ERA , second in WHIP, OBP against, etc...They were surely helped by the rangy defenders. The 1890 Sadie McMahon finished with a line of 24-36 in just over 500IPs, 3.56 ERA, .240 OAV, 1.30WHIP, 3.76 k/9 & 3.33 bb/9. He seemed to be snake bit and only yielded 11 homers in all those innings. Part of his problem was an incredible 85 wild pitches and 45 hit batters.
Good exercise. I will give it another try sooner than later.
