Musings from the 1907 off season

Posted 01-06-2018 at 01:45 PM by bjohn13

1907 was supposed to be a rebuilding year. Really, it was.

My strategy for success in the dead ball era is pretty simple. I don't put up with players who can't play defense. That was the one big advantage that this Brooklyn team had in 1907. Billy Hamilton was the only defensive liability in the field. Meanwhile, I could afford to have anyone in my lineup injured without missing a beat defensively.

On a bit of a darker note, I was a bit miffed to find that...

First off, the Cy Young retirement really did shock me. I was expecting him to come back in 1907 and be a valuable part of the rotation.

That said, the 1906 team really had two huge problems that I needed to address. The first was that I only had half of a starting rotation. Sure, Ambrose Puttman filled in exceptionally well last year, but his stamina never quite developed. He had a habit of blowing leads in the late innings, so I really did want him back in the bullpen.
