I finally got a sim to work!
 
1910 to 2006, no minor leagues but rosters expand, free agency is on but draft pick trading and compensation are off. Used Arod/Garlan's DB.

Check out some of these results with an amateur draft:

16 World Series championships in 21 appearances for the Red Sox. They won 1910-1912, (missed the pennant with a 100-62 record, 1 game back of the Washington Senators) then lost 1914, won 1915 and lost 1916. They won again in 1921 but didn't make another appearance until they lost in '34 and '35. They then won in '45, lost in '46 and won in '47. They had no showings and were a pretty bad team until they won in 1980, '82, '83, '86, '87, '88, and '89. They also win in '98 and '99. They lead the sim in winning percentage with .520, the next closest teams are the Indians and NY Giants at .509.

The Boston Braves lost their first 9 World Series appearances, finally winning in 1992. They lost 3 more mixed in with a win in '97. Every single franchise had at least 2 championships and only the Braves, Brooklyn Dodgers, Philadelphia Athletics and New York Yankees didn't make double figure Series appearances. The Yanks did win 5 of the 6 World Series they were in however.

Ted Williams finished 18th in BA at .334 from 1934-61 though he was frequently hurt. He played for the Boston Braves from '34 to '53 then bounced around between the Cardinals, Indians, Athletics, Dodgers, Yankees, Reds and Tigers. Leads in career OBP at .4656, Mel Ott is in second place at .4448. Has the single season record for OBP and walks, and leads in career walks as well.

Babe Ruth has these single season records: SLG (.830), OPS (1.319), VORP (171.5! as well as 2nd place at 133.39!), total bases (506), homeruns (71), RBIs (183). His career records are VORP (1621.9), Games (3374), ABs (12592), runs (2587), hits (3961), total bases (7648), homeruns (989!), RBIs (2665). He was MVP in 1914, 1916, '17, '18, '19, '20, '21, '22, '23, '24, '25, '26, '27, '29.

If anyone is interested in certain players or leaderboards or anything, let me know. This is the first time I've gotten to look at the stats myself as I let it run overnight.

If Babe had reached 1000 homers, I would have been impressed.

Kelric 06-05-2006 12:06 PM

I wish he had, that would have been incredible. 4,000 hits and 1,000 homers. Only 6 other guys have more than 500 homers and only 7 others have more than 3,000 hits.

How did Ty Cobb do?

I very rarely see him do good in mine, he hasn't hit over .245 in his first four years. How has he done in yours?

Didn't anybody beta test this thing? Borken, borken, BORKEN. :p

That season in 1920 should have got him elected mayor, not run out of town.

In my longest so far (1901 - 1940 or so, Lahman), after stepping in and trading Babe to the Yankees, the Curse was correctly imposed :). The Yankees made the WS approx 16/17 times in the next 20 years, but had actually lost about 2/3 of them. The only other AL team to reach the series, I think, was the Philadelphia Athletics. The Phillies, Giants and Pirates took most of those WS from NYA.

Ruth took free agency a couple of times, signing with the Cards and then the Giants, where he sat on the bench towards the end, putting up about 787 HRs in total.

How did you do that? The longest I can figure out how to sim is up until "next year"

Have you ever noticed the date at the top of the schedule screen? Did you know you can actually click on the date, the month, the year? Did you know if you click those, a selection box will pop up and if you click on the year, you can see many years into the future...

Gastric ReFlux 06-05-2006 01:06 PM

dola, then at the bottom of the screen, there's the one autoplay button with a selection for Sim to Selected Date.

Whoops, I meant to say I started in 1910. Cobb hit .341/.432/.500 for Detroit in 1910 with 154 hits. Tore a back muscle in September that ended his career. Finished with 921 career hits.

jnshmoo - when you're on the schedule page, see the date at the top all spelled out? Click the year and a menu should popup. Drag it to the highest number it lets you (50 years usually), then click it again and drag for another 50 years. Gets you your century. Or just pick whatever date you want.

Edit - Yeah, what GR said.

Yeah, I think so?, nope.

Missed that too. Actually, I've only gone into the schedule screen a few times and that was when I was actually going to go and play out some games.

This just fell into one of those "Don't know my way around yet" categories.

:o
