Chicago and New Orleans are at it again. Chicago just keeps on dumping players for prospects while New Orleans seems like they want to win in only their second year of existence. Mike Catanzaro has been one of the best center fielders in the league for awhile now.

Catanzaro, Ditlevson Swap Clubs
Monday, September 30th, 1889
Chicago and New Orleans have made a swap. Players involved in the transaction are the Union 28-year-old RF Mike Catanzaro and $300 in cash and the Rebels 18-year-old RF Tyler Ditlevson.

Catanzaro has a career .291 batting average and .358 on-base percentage. He has recorded 921 hits with 198 doubles, 39 triples, 68 homers, 404 RBIs and scored 449 runs since coming into the league.

I've never seen anything like this. Chicago was disappointing last year. They should have had a lot better team than they had. New Orleans was an expansion team. Now Chicago is trading player after player to New Orleans for prospects. It will be interesting to see what this means for these two teams down the road.

Chicago, New Orleans Agree to Swap
Friday, December 13th, 1889
In an effort to add some depth to its roster, the Chicago Union have swapped 26-year-old LHP John Waltke and $25 in cash to the New Orleans Rebels for 21-year-old minor league SS Kyle Meserole and 22-year-old minor league LHP Mark Hunt. The Union GM told reporters, "We saw a chance to upgrade our ball club and took it."

His career totals show Waltke has a 12-14 won-lost record with a 3.15 ERA.

Chicago just keeps on sending talent to these new teams for prospects. They had better hope that the prospects pan out!

Union, Industrialists Close Deal
Sunday, December 22nd, 1889
You can focus on the negatives after being traded to a new team -- finding a new place to stay, leaving teammates and friends, having to start anew -- but one player hopes to focus on the positives. "It means I'm wanted somewhere. At least one team sees potential in me." Those were the comments heard after the Chicago Union came to an agreement to deal 32-year-old SS Jason Wachs and $19 in cash to the Pittsburgh Industrialists for 34-year-old RHP Julian Guerra and 22-year-old C T.J. Windham earlier today. The deal is expected to be formally announced later this evening.

A check of his lifetime stats shows Wachs has a career .261 average with 583 hits, 60 doubles, 20 triples, 14 home runs and 221 RBIs. To date he has scored 247 runs, walked 286 times and stolen 55 bases.

Boston seems to be going in the opposite direction as Chicago. For the second time this off-season, they have traded prospects for an established player.

Red Legged Devils-Brahmins Swap Confirmed

Sunday, January 5th, 1890
The Brooklyn Red Legged Devils have finalized a deal that will send 25-year-old RHP Nick Hotchkiss to Boston for 24-year-old minor league RHP Antonio Tapia and 19-year-old minor league SS Zachary Marshall. Minor details still need to be worked out before the trade becomes official, but the players involved are expected to be with their new clubs soon.

Cobb Now Hall of Famer
Tuesday, January 7th, 1890
Joel Cobb, a standout center fielder throughout his Stars and Stripes League career, has been inducted into the Hall of Fame in his 5th attempt.

During the induction ceremony, he credited the coaches, who taught him to play the game and the teammates, who taught him to be a professional.

However, the most important influence, Cobb said, was his father.
"Pops never gave up on me," he said, "no matter how often I felt like giving up on myself.

In his 563-game career, Cobb hit .290 with 592 hits, 79 home runs, 355 runs scored and 364 RBIs.

He wrapped up his career at the age of 35 and retired, hanging up his cleats in 1885.

Hall of Fame Inducts Center Fielder
Tuesday, January 7th, 1890
Scott Chaban played baseball a long time and he played it well. Then at the age of 36, he called it a career. In recognition of his outstanding accomplishments, Chaban has been voted into the Hall of Fame, with 81.8% of ballots voting him in.

"There is so much to love about this game," the newest honoree said during his induction speech at the Stars and Stripes League Baseball Hall of Fame. "I couldn't imagine anything greater than my first major league game. Then I hit my first home run. Then the other landmarks came. But nothing tops today... to think that I made it to the Hall of Fame."

The legendary center fielder put up some impressive numbers. Chaban played in 625 games, compiled a .320 batting average, hit 53 home runs, drove in 283 runs and scored 360 times during his career.

Redmond Honored by First Ballot Selection to SSL Hall of Fame
Tuesday, January 7th, 1890
Today was an historic day in the life of pitching star, Adam Redmond. Today he was inducted into the Stars and Stripes League Hall of Fame and joined the ranks of baseball's elite.

Lifetime Redmond put up a won-loss record of 233-156, had an ERA of 3.32, struck out 1123 batters and held opposing teams to a .284 batting average. Redmond made 470 mound appearances and worked 3427 innings in his career.

During his induction speech, the talented hurler told the audience what he thought made him successful, "Less than a foot makes the difference between being the winning pitcher and the losing pitcher -- a hero and a bum -- and it can also be the difference between a short stint in the league, a ten-year career and making the Hall of Fame. Fortunately I was blessed with a strong arm, good movement and good location. Those few inches made a huge difference in my baseball career."

A fun fact about Joel Cobb is that I acquired in in one of the most lop-sided trades in history. I picked him up and two other Hall of Famers in exchange for the best prospect of the league, who didn't pan out, and my back-up catcher.

7/5/1877
To Cincinnati
SP Corey Garvey (Hall of Fame and all-time wins leader)
3B Kyle "Congree Suspender" Strickland (Highest vote receiving Hall of Famer ever)
CF Joel Cobb (Hall of Fame)
3B Frank McCargar

To Boston
1B Andy Buchanan (huge prospect who has had a decent career but highest War is 2.8)
C Pat Beasley

This is a pretty minor deal, but it is revealing in that it shows that Cleveland is trying the opposite approach from New Orleans. They are acquiring prospects. It will be interesting to see who becomes competitive first.

Garcia and Mathis Dealt
Monday, February 3rd, 1890
The Cleveland Eries announced a deal with the Shippers today, sending 27-year-old RHP Steve Garcia and $90 in cash to Baltimore for 21-year-old minor league RF Cody Mathis. It had been talked about for the past few weeks and everything came together late last night. All players are expected to be joining their respective clubs shortly.

In all, Garcia has compiled a 4-20 mark during his career and a 5.32 ERA.

With it being the start of a new decade, I thought that it might be a good time to reflect on the history of the league. Here are the franchises of the league rated from most successful to least.

1. Cincinnati Porkers/Abolitionists- 899-595- .602- 6 championships (1873, 1878, 1879, 1880, 1882, 1885) -Team of the 1870s

2. Chicago Union- 814-680- .545- 3 championships (1877, 1884, 1887)- Most Hall of Famers with 6

3. Philadelphia Congress- 797-697- .533- 3 championships (1886, 1888, 1880)- Team of the 1880s after being the worst team in the 1870s

4. St Louis Survivors- 753-741- .504- 2 championships (1874 and 1875)

5. Boston Brahmins- 705-790- .472- 2 championships (1871 and 1876)

6. Baltimore Shippers/New Orleans Rebels- 676-819- .452- 2 championships (1881 and 1883)

7. Brooklyn Red Legged Devils- 721-773- .483- 1 championship (1872)

8. New York Immigrants- 666-828- .446- 0 championships

9. Cleveland Eries- 41-91- .311

10. New Orleans Rebels- 37-95- .280

New Orleans has made yet another deal for a veteran in exchange for prospects. That's a bold move for an expansion team. I wonder if it will pay off for them.

Red Legged Devils, Rebels Confirm Deal
Wednesday, February 12th, 1890
Officials for Brooklyn confirmed that they have traded 27-year-old LF Jacob Moore and $50 in cash to the New Orleans Rebels. In return, the Red Legged Devils will receive 18-year-old minor league 3B George Andres, 19-year-old minor league 3B Allen Ackerman and 23-year-old C Aaron Espinoza.

Over his 242-game career Moore has compiled a .228 batting average and collected 175 hits, 8 home runs and 71 RBIs.

I checked out New Orleans general manager Brad Schneeberg. He is the only general manager to have had multiple winning seasons in New York. He's the one that they fired when they couldn't quite get over the hump, and they haven't been worth a darn sense. This just might work out for New Orleans.

Also, he hired three time manager of the year and two time champion Jerry Kerr to be his new manager. Perhaps the greatest manager of the 1870s is back in baseball after a four-year hiatus. This could be interesting.

It looks like New York headlines the top 10 prospects list with three in the top 10. As the only original franchise to never win a pennant, that's an encouraging sign for their fans.

Top 100 Prospects List Published: The season is about to start, so it's time to publish the annual Top 100 Prospects list. This year 21-year-old RF Ben Rodriguez of the Boston Brahmins is the #1 prospect overall.

Here is the top 10:
1) RF Ben Rodriguez, 21, Boston Brahmins
2) 3B Jon Griffin, 22, New York Immigrants
3) RHP Chris Rogers, 22, Baltimore Shippers
4) 1B Mike Barajas, 22, St. Louis Survivors
5) RHP Jacob Mullane, 22, Baltimore Shippers
6) RHP James Sprague, 20, Philadelphia Congress
7) RHP Mike Doss, 24, Philadelphia Congress
8) CF Justin Nicosia, 21, New York Immigrants
9) RHP Jared Moser, 21, New York Immigrants
10) RHP Jake Dabrowski, 20, St. Louis Survivors

The preseason predictions say that we will have a tie for the top spot in the league. The 1890s look like they will start off with a bang.

With it being the first day of existence for two new franchises, let's take a look at the scores from opening day, 1890.

Cincinnati 3 Baltimore 2 (15 innings)
New Orleans 4 Brooklyn 3
Philadelphia 4 Pittsburgh 0
St Louis 4 Cleveland 2
Buffalo 3 New York 2
Boston 5 Chicago 2

So the Buffalo Freedom have become the first expansion team to begin their existence with a win.

One of the most best pitchers in the league is now out for the season. This will significantly hamper Philadelphia's chances to win their fourth pennant in five years. It's a good thing for them that they also have the best farm system in the league.

Injury Shuts Down Fernandez for Season

"Not what I wanted to hear," said Philadelphia's Carlos Fernandez to reporters this afternoon, as he revealed that the injury he sustained on 04/08/1890 would force him to miss the rest of the season. "The doctor made it clear," Fernandez said. "There's no chance for me -- none at all -- to come back this year. That's the last thing I wanted to hear." Fernandez has been out of action since he suffered a broken kneecap.

At the start of last season, I posted the following two posts. Boston ended up in fourth place and 10 games back.

I never saw Boston as a contender this year. Nine games in, and they are 9-0.

After a 10-0 start, Boston lost a game, 4-3, to St Louis.


Ten games into the 1890 season, Boston is again 10-0. Will this be the year that they put it all together?

This year Boston made it to 11-0, but in game 12 it was Pittsburgh starter George Schilling who shut them out to end the winning streak. That has to hurt. Schilling was the only good player available in the expansion draft, and Pittsburgh was lucky to be able to draft him...from Boston.
