    It mainly comes out of OBP, because most playoff pitchers don't walk many (except mine, lol). King (above) RS OBP: .372, playoffs: .308.
    O's guy has really good CN which surprises me his BA is as low as it was. In my case, my guy was all DI and SL oddly he didnt have a lot of HRs but his OBP stayed up. But I see what you're all talking about.

    Re: '73 season discussion

    Tulsa comes up in the clutch two more games in a row!!

    Game 1 we sported an early 3-0 lead bolstered by MVP Chandler’s 2-run homer. West KY gets a 2-run shot of their own in the 8th to tie things 3-3. West KY then goes for the win in the top of the 9th. Two on and one out, my closer comes in to preserve the tie. Lang (.328 career AVG) hits a potential go-ahead single to right, but my RF Robles guns their guy at the plate trying to score from 2nd. Tie preserved, and we win in the 10th off an RBI single that did successfully score a runner from second.

    Game 2 was a ridiculous pitching duel. My low EN starter went 5 no-hit innings. Then my SP5 turned MR1 for playoffs (SY specialist) went 5 scoreless, allowing just 4 hits and no walks while striking out 5. All of this was matched by West KY’s Jeffrey King (former #8 pick, career best 3.00 ERA this year), who held us scoreless through 10. Top of the 11th West KY threatened by my closer Duty in the mound, but he escaped a bases loaded jam. Then with King on the mound again in the top of the 11th, he K’d leadoff man Bradford, but Chandler drew a walk, stole second, and scored on Gabriel’s walkoff double.


    We are getting all of the breaks right now. 5 straight wins coming bottom of 9th or later!

    Re: '73 season discussion

    Tulsa completes the sweep!

    Game 3 was yet another close game, our 6th straight one-run win this postseason. West KY held a 5-2 lead through 6th. We answered Top of the 7th with a rare 3-run HR by #9 hitter Ross (about 10 HR/season).

    Game stayed tied at 5-5 until the 9th. Inning led off with walk and single by my #8-9 hitters, setting the table for my All Stars at the top of the order. Bradford surprised everyone with a bunt-single that the catcher didn’t get to in time. Bases loaded for Chandler, and the MVP ripped a go-ahead 2-RBI double. Not to be outdone, Gabriel followed with a 2-run double of his own. All of a sudden we’re up 9-5. West KY didn’t give up their, managing a 2-out, 3-run HR. Duty finally got the final out to preserve the 1-run win.

    Game 4 started out close as well. Tulsa up 3-2 through 6 innings. Top of the 7th we pushed across 4 runs now 6 hits to get a safe lead and ultimately won the game and the series with a convincing 9-2 effort.

    Tough series loss, Sharpe. Your guys played well and were in every game, down to the final inning except in the last one.

    Tulsa is now 16-0 in the Conference Championship Round over the past 4 seasons!!!

    Balmers AP squad gave Wheat State all they can handle, but the Wildcats mount a dramatic comeback in the bottom of the 9th in game 7 and walk it off to the WS for another rematch with Tulsa!

    Congrats to Balmers on a fantastic season and series!

    Third straight meeting between balmer’s Arlington Park and tander’s Wheat State teams in the Conference Finals. Tander had won the first two.

    This one went to Game 7. Starting pitchers were as follows:
    Wheat State Aaron Abrego (3.0 ERA CO-SY guy)
    Arlington Park Larry Wood (3.7 ERA SY only guy)

    Wheat State with the early 2-0 lead. AP, however, exploded in the 5th. A pair of 3-run HRs shot them out to a 6-2 lead. This would maintain into the 8th inning. Michael Sanchez (career 37 HR/160) would lead off the bottom half of the inning with a solo HR, ending Wood’s night at a solid 7 IP 3 ER. Still, that left Wheat State trailing 6-3 into the 9th. They managed a leadoff HR, and then Sanchez launched a 2-run HR to tie the game. With the game now tied, AP brought ageless wonder Keith Hill (40 years old! 17/19 saves at 2.27 ERA this year) to the mound. Didn’t work. He handed out a walk, and then MVP Salvador Montgomery hit a walkoff double to win the game and the series.


    Third straight matchup between Tulsa and Wheat State coming up! Tie breaker edition!

    AP somehow manages to just hang around enough to be annoying. I should have sold off the last 3-4 seasons to be honest, but never got good enough offers to make it worth it.

    Re: '73 season discussion

    Horrific start to the WS for Tulsa. Lost AT HOME 11-2 in both Game 1 and Game 2. Ouch!

    Game 3 showed some promise of a much-needed series comeback. Chandler hit a 3-run homer in the 2nd inning to give us a sizeable lead. Wheat State used a couple 2-out singles in the 3rd to score two runs, making it 3-2. The lead would hold until the 7th. Bullpen comes in and gives up back to back doubles. Game 3-3 and potential for a big inning. A single follows, but MVP Montgomery gets tagged at the plate to keep the game tied. Perhaps luck was still with me! Game goes to extra innings, and Chandler launches a solo HR Top of the 10th, a potential game winner. Unfortunately Wheat State’s Carter (33 HR in just 114 games this year) answers in the bottom half of the inning. With momentum lost, Tulsa would be held scoreless before Montgomery hits a 2-out RBI single in the bottom of the 13th to win the game.

    Game 4, facing elimination, Tulsa unloads for a dominant 7-0 win. SP3 London makes his first start here (Mendoza beat so badly and quickly in Game 1 he was fully rested for Game 3) and tosses a 3-hit ShO. Chandler goes 3-4 plus a walk, steals 3 bases, and scores 3 times. Couldn’t have asked for a better game.

    Would be feeling great about this series if we’d pulled out Game 3. Still, we’re on the board now and hoping to force a return to Tulsa. Been very fun to watch the two MVP’s duking it out. Both with some big games and clutch hits.

    Re: '73 season discussion

    Game 5 recap:

    Series continues to be a back and forth between the two league MVPs. Montgomery gets a 2-run HR in the 1st, while Chandler answers with a 2-run shot in the top of the 3rd. Tie doesn’t last half an inning as Michael Sanchez hits a solo shot in the bottom of the 3rd (5th HR in last 6 games!). I was in a bind for starting pitcher in this one, but rolled the dice with Acevedo. He’s a lower energy SP to begin with and only at 83% stamina to start this game. Had to drop SP relief setting from 0% (my standard) to -20% to make sure he got some innings in. 5 IP 3 ER isn’t great, but it gave us a chance, so pleased with his performance. Game would stay 3-2 while Wheat State’s SP Wakefield was in the game, finishing a strong 7 IP 2 ER effort. Wheat State turned the mound to Francis Foreman, a 4.5 ERA CO guy. Foreman allowed a leadoff walk to our #9 hitter, but it was neutralized by a CS. He then K’d our #1 hitter. Chandler got a single and a SB to put the tying run in scoring position with 2 outs. This brought up Gabriel, our clear #2 hitter and solid 1.000 OPS guy, but mired in a 1-19 slump (one single) the entire WS. He finally comes through in the clutch here, launching a 2-run HR to put us back in front 4-3. We would add another HR for insurance. Wheat State would threaten some, getting two leadoff singles in the 8th and one in the 9th, but they couldn’t drive any more runs in as we secure the 5-3 win.

    Series back to Tulsa! We’re fighting our way back in!

    Re: '73 season discussion

    We have both league MVPs facing off this World Series, and neither has disappointed both in terms of total output and clutch hits. Here are their stats through 5 games:

    Tulsa’s James Chandler
    12-21, 7 runs, 1 double, 3 HR, 7 RBIs, 3 BB, 4 SO, 6 SB, 2 CS
    Slash: .571/.625/1.047/1.672

    Wheat State’s Salvador Montgomery
    7-18, 6 runs, 1 double, 2 HR, 5 RBIs, 5 BB, 2 SO, 2 SB, 1 CS
    Slash: .389/.522/.778/1.300

    Simply fantastic seeing these two carry their teams with everything on the line.
