Lightbulb The Battle for Supremacy

Finally, the time is upon us. I have gotten my new computer, which means running more than one application at a time is now possible without constant freezing and I can finally do the dynasty threads I had always wanted to.

The first being this. Forum member Nick Soulis is all the inspiration of this idea and love what he has done in his own thread The Excellence Project. Urge anyone to check it out.


The concept:

256 of the greatest MLB teams from 1901-2013 battle it out for supremacy.

The execution:
The 256 teams needed to be chosen. The picking of teams was done by Pythagorean W/L%, also was the choice to avoid too many double teams. So when a year was chose, the 4 preceding and 4 after were not allowed to appear as well (Meaning the 1998 and 2001 Yankees both couldn't appear).

Each team is represented at least once.

The 256 teams were placed into 32 leagues of 8, which were seeded.

4 teams move on from Round 1 cutting the field to 16 brackets with 128 teams in Round 2.

The #1 bracket combines with the #32 bracket in Round 2 and so on.

Round 3 will be 64 teams in 8 brackets.

Round 4 will be 32 teams in 4 brackets.

The final round will be a two league season, 16 teams in each league (2 divisions of 8).
Division winners and 2 wild cards per league enter a post season. All series are best of nine until the championship series.



I will use OOTP 15 to run this. Each league will have a monthly report and a final wrap up.

-Leagues will run 154 game schedules.
-Injuries will be limited to 15 days no matter what the injury to a player.
-In case of a tie at the cut off point of a league, the teams will face each other in a 3 game series.

July 01, Round 1, Bracket #1



#8 seed San Diego Padres 1989 are making a surprising challenge to entering Round 2. More than halfway through the season and the Padres are 1.0 game back despite being the lowest of all 256 seeds in the battle.
The Orioles fell off hard this month, however 4 games separate 2nd and 6th place.

06/13 - Roberto Alomar, 2B, Sdp1989

06/27 - Roberto Alomar, 2B, Sdp1989 (2)

06/20 - John Kruk, San Diego 1989, hits for the cycle against Chicago Cubs 1906. (4 / 5, 3 RBI)

Batter of the Month
Les Bell, 3B, St. Louis Cardinals 1926
.330, 6 HR, 22 RBI

Pitcher of the Month
Matt Keough, RH, Oakland Athletics 1981
3-0, 1.91 ERA, 23 K

August 01, Round 1, Bracket #1



Pittsburgh has a stranglehold and should easily pass through to the second round.
The miracle Padres have lost ground and need another miracle run.
The #2 seed Orioles have been horrid. It's unlikely they will compete unless Oakland falls apart.





Players of the Week
07/04 - Fred Beebe, RH, Chc1906
07/11 - Harry Steinfeldt, 3B, Chc1906

TEAM WRAP UPS

#4 Pittsburgh Pirates 1979 - The Pirates mashed 144 home runs and stole 122 bags providing easily the best combination of power and speed in the league. Bruce Kison and Bert Blyleven spearheaded a solid staff that got a huge season from its fifth starter, John Candelaria. They finished three spots ahead of their seed and look to be dangerous entering round 2.

#1 Chicago Cubs 1906 - The top seed in the tournament failed to win its league in round 1, but they finished great down the stretch and shrugged off the mid season blues. This team was all about getting on base and using defense to secure its leads. They led in runs, avg and obp which helped to get to big leads their 8th place bullpen couldn't even blow. The bullpen is going to be a large concern entering round 2.

#7 Oakland Athletics 1981 - The team no one expected to be here. Led by its dominant trio of outfielders: Henderson, Armas and Murphy. The team was last in runs despite being only surpassed by Pittsburgh in long balls with 137. The pitching was dominant, front to back. Langford, Keough and Underwood ate up batters and the first place bullpen was untouchable delivering a 2.66 ERA.

#3, Boston Red Sox 2013 - They finished 7.0 games ahead of being eliminated and thus there was no race to watch at the end of the season. The Red Sox carry Mike Napoli and David Ortiz to the next round who were a large part of this offense. All of Boston's struggles were in pitching where they had no true dominant starter but were even all the way through the staff. Someone will need to step up in round 2.

#8 San Diego Padres 1989 - The last seed in the tournament barely was eliminated, finishing one spot out. Rookie Andy Benes combined with Bruce Hurst and Tony Gwynn to power this team all year.

#2 Baltimore Orioles 1979 - Amazing to see a top notch seed already gone. The Orioles failed to score all season and finished 7th in OBP despite stars like Gary Roenicke, Eddie Murray, Ken Singleton and Al Bumbry.

#6 New York Highlanders 1904 - Jack Chesbro may have been the only reason this team stuck around as long as they did. The pitching was bad and somehow managed to avoid finishing last. Willie Keeler and Patsy Dougherty were the lone bright spots batting.

#5 St. Louis Cardinals 1926 - A team that managed to win the world series from the Yankees somehow finishes in last. A team with Pete Alexander and Rogers Hornsby somehow couldn't find a way. Pitching was a nightmare, and the offense never clicked.

Team Wrap Ups

#2 New York Yankees 1932 - Solid pitching helped, but the relentless ability to get on base is why New York sits atop the bracket. Boasting 5 .300 hitters, Gehrig and Ruth combined for 54 homeruns and 193 RBIs. Despite injuries to Ruth throughout, the team never had a problem generating offense.

#3 Atlanta Braves 2013 - Anchored by a mean bullpen and a lineup that can hit it a country mile, the Braves ended the season strong moving from 5th as late as July, to 2nd to end the year. The team managed to avoid the injury bug and Heyward, Freeman and Upton nailed the ball all season long.

#8 Pittsburgh Pirates 2013 - Another surprising Pirates team that dominated from the get go. They will join the 1979 Pirates in the same bracket in Round 2. Coming with them is the MVP candidate Andrew McCutchen who batted .309 mashing 17 long balls. They'll need Jordy Mercer to produce as highly as he did in this round and for Pedro Alvarez to stay above the Mendoza line.

#4 Brooklyn Robins 1920 - The hottest team in April started the bracket 15-1, then leveled off, then dominated, then fell off. It was a rollercoaster year but they make the cut to round 2 and by mid-August all threats were gone for their spot. They carry a heavy hand in pitching but the offense finished 7th. Outside of Hi Myers no one really found a groove this season in Brooklyn at the plate.

#7 Arizona Diamondbacks 2011 - The team that carried the most wallop fails to advance. Chris Young, Justin Upton and Ryan Roberts all hit 20+ homeruns, but the bottom 3 of the pitching staff got hammered all season. Daniel Hudson and Ian Kennedy's big efforts were wasted.

#5 Chicago White Sox 2000 - Mike Sirotka was the only decent starter. After that was a large drop off that hurt bigger than the big hurt.

#1 Detroit Tigers 1935 - It made no sense. They started terrible. They never made it higher than 7th place. They loused up the field. Hank Greenberg managed 4 player of the week honors. On paper their pitching looked passable. But they finished near the bottom in every category.

#6 St. Louis Browns 1944 - No surprise that the 1944 pennant winning Browns failed. The team made it big in a war year with nothing of value but perhaps luck.

Bracket 1-A in Round 2 will look as follows

Chicago Cubs 1906 (#1)
New York Yankees 1932 (#2)
Atlanta Braves 2013 (#3)
Boston Red Sox 2013 (#3)
Pittsburgh Pirates 1979 (#4)
Brooklyn Robins 1920 (#4)
Oakland Athletics 1981 (#7)
Pittsburgh Pirates 2013 (#8)

Interesting that there are 3 2013 teams in this round 2 bracket.

8 teams from the 2013 season made it, this due to the face they did not have to compete with 4 future seasons of their teams that would have made it. I am surprised the first 3 of those 8 all advanced.

As it is now, 2 of the 32 first round brackets are complete.

Round 1 will continue with bracket #16 next with a preview soon.

Really like your concept, and how you are sharing it.

Just a question though. Since teams get one shot through to find out who is best, would it not be more fair to have injuries off? Or bad luck could hit the best team's 3 starting pitchers out for the season or the 09 tigers lose Cobb for 6 months and finish last and thus we would never know who really was the best,- just the most lucky

Cheers

I should be continuing this soon. Thanks for interest.


And I capped injuries at 15 days as mentioned in the first post. Season enders aren't possible.
