I know this is a fictional thread, but I can't help think about the history of the real MLB as I play these earlier years - it would be interesting to play a true historical league to learn some of this stuff. Anyway, I've been reading a few key highlights of each year at the Baseball Almanac.

Not great so far. He played one game in the majors and got sent back down to AAA. The Yankees have Mike Goodale in RF (named to 6 top 100 lists himself) so they must be giving Spinner a chance to get to his potential in the minors.

1908 MLB All-Star Rosters

Two interesting players this year: Name:  DavonRolax.PNG
Views: 28
Size:  40.8 KBDavon Rolax and Name:  BlahoslavLeutheusser.PNG
Views: 28
Size:  42.9 KBBlahoslav Leutheusser. They both have similar career paths, coming from out of nowhere to performing well enough to make the All-Star team this year.

Rolax was a New York High School kid drafted in the 28th round in 1900 by the White Sox. He spent the next 5 years in the low minor leagues before moving up to AA in 1905. He started 1906 in AAA and finally broke into the major leagues with the Dbacks. Most of his value comes from elite fielding at SS; he has a 17.8 ZR in half a season this year.

Leutheusser was in college at Georgia and also drafted in 1900, but instead in the 6th round. He made it to the majors in 1903 for a third of the season and repeated this for the next three years. Finally, in 1906 he was a little above average and in 1907, he was solidly above average. This year, his first half is on track for one just shy of an MVP.

1908 MLB Playoffs

Honest, I didn't even rig this (you can trust me, I'm a Brewers fan). The Chicago Cubs win the 1908 World Series. Jack Gilkey, the recent top pitching prospect was the World Series MVP.

How to Run the Top Free Agents Report

This is how I run the top Free Agent report using Excel. First I configure the database export: Replace accents, Insert column names, players_basic, Show real player ratings, players_player_value. Then export to csv.

Then I open up the players and players_value files and paste these formulas at the end of the sheet (beginning at location CU1).

Position: =IF(D2=1,VLOOKUP(E2,[Fixes.xlsx]DraftList!$K$2:$L$4,2,0),VLOOKUP(D2,[Fixes.xlsx]DraftList!$H$2:$I$10,2,0))
Name: =F2&" "&G2
Age: =I2
FA: =IF(CW2<=22,0,Q2)
Career_value: =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A2,INDIRECT("players_value.csv!$A $2:$S$"&COUNT(players_value.csv!$A:$A)-1),16,0)),0,VLOOKUP(A2,INDIRECT("players_value.csv !$A$2:$S$"&COUNT(players_value.csv!$A:$A)-1),16,0))

The VLOOKUP command under position references two tables that translates the "position" and "role" values for each player into an actual position name. The position value are the typical baseball values for 1-9 (Pitcher = 1, etc). If a player is listed as a pitcher, he will then have a role of 11 (SP), 12 (RP), or 13 (CL). I don't like to differentiate between RP and CL, so I just name them both RP.

Once the values are calculated, I sort by descending career value and filter on FA=1 and use that as the basis for the top 30 FA. This is not entirely accurate since the top FA once signed do not always follow the career value trend. I haven't tried yet to see which other variables are important for determining which FA will make the most money any given offseason. I imagine it has to do with expected performance, player personality, injuries, etc. This does fine for now.

1908 Free Agency

After completing his two year contract with the Astros,
Name:  YagoPimentelFA.PNG
Views: 23
Size:  26.3 KB
Yago Pimentel is on the market yet again. He pitched 26 Major League games over the length of the contract and gathered 5.7 WAR. He is still only 28 years old and will no doubt find a team that is willing to take the risk.

Name:  DaveSweetFA.PNG
Views: 23
Size:  24.6 KB
Dave Sweet has dealt with injuries as well after being named the top pitching prospect. He is currently just finishing a rehab for a torn labrum but for some reason rejected a qualifying offer. He must be very confident that shoulder will heal.

Name:  KinnonDuford1908.PNG
Views: 23
Size:  39.1 KB
Kinnon Duford is not listed on the top 30 list since he is now 37 years old, but he is still one of the most talented FA available. His 1901 MVP season was a long time ago but he has still been consistently performing at an all-star level.

How to Run the Unsigned Draftees Report

I run this report using the same file as the Free Agent report. I paste these formulas right next to those of the Free Agent columns, so starting at CZ1.

Nxt_Yr_age: =(697347-DF2)/365.25
Level: =VLOOKUP(C2,[Fixes.xlsx]DraftList!$E$2:$F$32,2,0)
Unsigned: =IF(CZ2>=18.82,IF(DA2="HS","Y",IF(CW2=19,IF(DA2="F A","Y","N"),"N")),"N")
HittingTalent: =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A2,INDIRECT("players_value.csv!$A $2:$S$"&COUNT(players_value.csv!$A:$A)-1),7,0)),0,VLOOKUP(A2,INDIRECT("players_value.csv! $A$2:$S$"&COUNT(players_value.csv!$A:$A)-1),7,0))
PitchingTalent: =IF(ISNA(VLOOKUP(A2,INDIRECT("players_value.csv!$A $2:$S$"&COUNT(players_value.csv!$A:$A)-1),11,0)),0,VLOOKUP(A2,INDIRECT("players_value.csv !$A$2:$S$"&COUNT(players_value.csv!$A:$A)-1),11,0))
Max: =MAX(DC2:DD2)
DOB: =DATE(DG2,DH2,DI2)

The first thing is determine what age the player will be when the NCAA season begins the following year. Since Excel uses December 30, 1899 as day 0 of the universe, I have to do some calculations to figure out how old the players are that were born in the 1800s. This involves adding 1900 to the calculated dates. Once I turn the player's actual birth date to an Excel date, it says they were born in AD 3700 something - 5/6/1889 turns into 5/6/3789. I compensate for that by saying that the NCAA season starts on 3/26/3809 or whatever. The 697347 value changes every year based on the NCAA season start date.

The level field turns the level value into an actual level. This was determined for my game from the leagues_basic file from which I created a static table. The Unsigned field determines which players fit the proper criteria: Draft eligible last year (that's the 18.82 bit), still in HS or listed as a FA but only 19. Depending on how old the player is at draft time, the team will either hold onto him or release him if he is drafted but unsigned.

I use the Talent level to determine the player ranking and then select the top 20 to manually move to college. It is important to leave the players_value sheet open at all times while running these calculations or else it won't work.

Finally, I copy the date_of_birth field from column J and paste it in column DG, then run Text to Columns, using a hyphen as the delimiter. This will separate the date into year, month, day which will allow the DOB to calculate the proper age.

I sort by the Max field and filter on Unsigned = Y

1908 Unsigned Draftees

The college teams were much more well-stocked this year and I selected more players to move because there were 25 players with a talent level over 1000. There were 150 players that fit under the Unsigned High School category total.

1908 Where Are They Now?

Top Prospects:
Joe Ramage - At the age of 29, Ramage is an elite pitcher in the Major Leagues. He has made two all-star games and was recently selected as the runner-up to J.P. Avila in the Pitcher of the Year voting.

Career MLB Stats: 180 G, 303 BB, 603 K, 89 FIP-, 25.6 WAR

Kevin Caperton - Caperton has had some injury issues but overall is performing around the Major League average.

Career MLB Stats: 3596 PA, 119 wRC+, -31.8 ZR, 12.7 WAR

Draftees:
Andrejs Silamikelis - The top draft pick in 1903 has turned into quite the fragile player. He isn't on the same level as Pimentel, but does consistently miss games every year. He is still doing very well but not at the level he would be if he could stay healthy.

Career MLB Stats: 2624 PA, 136 wRC+, 44.6 ZR, 29.1 WAR

Chris Spinner - He is still a very high potential prospect but hasn't put it together into Major-League ready skill yet.

Career MLB Stats: 4 PA, 70 wRC+, N/A ZR, 0 WAR

Joe Hubbard - One of the great college pitchers, Hubbard has turned into a solid mid-rotation starter in the majors with potential for more. His changeup is probably not going to make it, which is holding him back from making the leap. He does have a forkball to use as a change of pace, but it isn't at the same level as his other pitches.

Career MLB Stats: 130 G, 214 BB, 403 K, 92 FIP-, 16.4 WAR

Award Winners:
Tim Shriver - The 1903 AL Rookie of the Year has turned in a steady MLB career.

Career MLB Stats: 3991 PA, 103 wRC+, 38.3 ZR, 19.6 WAR

Jamie Schneider - The 1903 NL Rookie of the Year has not come close to matching his first year stats, though he still has been a useful major leaguer - possibly because he has been miscast as a CF instead of LF.

Career MLB Stats: 2975 PA, 122 wRC+, 19.6 ZR, 15.4 WAR

Other:
Liam Fouts - He had at the time the longest hitting streak that I had seen. He has made it as high as AAA but never cracked the majors yet.

Marvin Munoz - Munoz was named to the first four all-star games but hasn't returned since. He is still a great reliever, but has turned into a perennial free agent who refuses to sign until after the regular season has started. By the end of the year, he has done well, but he misses all of that time in Spring Training to get off the rust. His teams so far: Rockies, Angels, Giants, Rangers, Braves, White Sox, Marlins, Orioles, Cubs, Marlins again. He is a Free Agent this year as well. He is a legitimate relief HOF candidate but would be so much more if he would just sign sooner.

Career MLB Stats: 525 G, 193 BB, 603 K, 46 FIP-, 24.0 WPA, 26.9 WAR

Jared Harwell - He pitched the third no-hitter in MLB history but didn't stick around much longer as he retired in 1905.

Career MLB Stats: 185 G, 348 BB, 446K, 102 FIP-, 17.1 WAR

Kevin Roberts - Roberts was the top FA in 1903 and returned to the market in 1907, signing with the Padres. He was primed for a HOF run but ran into hamstring injuries and is now classified as "Wrecked."

Career MLB Stats: 4432 PA, 135 wRC+, -80 ZR, 27.7 WAR

Luis Magallanes - The old adage is to get rid of a pitcher the year before he goes downhill and that's just what the Brewers did in 1903. Magallanes was one of the premier pitchers in the league's infancy but tore the flexor tendon in his elbow in 1904, the year after the Brewers refused to re-sign him. He retired after sitting out the 1908 campaign as he tore the flexor tendon in his elbow a second time.

Career MLB Stats: 223 G, 287 BB, 608 K, 86 FIP-, 36.8 WAR
