100th Post Chart Post

There has been a lot of high scoring entrants, and a couple floor breakers since the last chart was posted, so I figured the 100th post in the thread was a good time for another.

The mean GC is currently 3.8.

The Ink means are at 0.8 and the HOFm/s means are at 1.1. This shows how much harder it has been to get Ink points as a HOFer as compared to RL. The HOFm/s numbers make sense because there are more players active, on the average, for this league than in RL and, therefore, more chances for players to put together HOF career numbers even though they are not picking up leader board points in each season as often as in RL.

The median GC score of the Hall is currently 3.4. Boog Powell (plot 121) and Don Sutton (plot 159) represent the the median entrants.

The plots of Monte McFarland and Deke White are the low points at the bottom right portion of the chart. Relief pitchers get bonuses added to their scores to enter, but the bonus is removed once they are inducted in order to maintain congruency with the RL numbers.

The current standard deviation for the entrants is 1.7.

We see the majority of entrants clustered in the low 2s to about the 5 line. We see a separation of entrants around the 6 line.

I think the CG may tick up to 3.9 before this universe is finished. I don't think it will reach 4.0. It will tick up because there are a good number of hitters with GCs over 3.8 that have yet to get in. Plus, any FBS entrants that come around will raise the GC, also.

The plot at 9.5 on the right hand portion of the chart is Shoeless Joe. I thought he would break a 10 and be a Once in a Generation player, but it didn't happen. Maybe I will change the designation to Once in a Lifetime for 10+ scores.

I smiled this morning when I saw 2000 views on the thread. I know that represents repeat customers, and it is nice to know that others find this experiment interesting. I appreciate the support you give by reading about this process. The version 14 version will be even better. I will go into more detail about how it will be better when this is completed and I start playing on v 14. I can't wait.

A note on the 2068 season: Charlie Hough was drafted by the Cubs. No HOF for him here. Wait till next year's universe....Scott Coolbaugh was also drafted this year. Funny thinking of the two of them as the same age.

Class of 2068 (1996): Keefe

Tim Keefe was selected by the Indianapolis Sea Gulls with the 12th pick in the 2042 draft. Keefe is the 50th player to be inducted into this HOF and the previous one. He is the 46th RL HOFer to be inducted here. He is the 19th RL HOFer to be inducted into both OOTP HOF.

In his Free Agent year of 2047, Keefe won 20 games vs 5 losses. This was his first of two 20 win seasons. He posted an OOTP ERA of 2.02 (npa ERA+ 204). He parlayed that season into a 5 year $83 M deal (2012 financial settings) with the Charlotte River Dragons.

He was anything but complacent after having been granted the large guaranteed sum. He won his first of two Cy Young Awards in 2048 by going 18-8 and striking out 323 men in 247 2/3 IP. His 2.47 OOTP ERA gave him a npa ERA+ of 162.

After a rough 2049 (13-16, 4.448), Keefe put it back together and had his best season in 2050. His 21 wins was a career high, and he dropped only 7 decisions. He struck out a career high 378 men in 247 1/3 IP while walking only 65. This was the highest strike out total in 30 years. No one since has thrown more Ks in a season. He posted an OOTP ERA of 1.93 for a career best npa ERA+ of 214.

For his career Keefe won 241 games (t-18th, 5 wins behind Dan Casey) and lost 149. His .6179 win % places him 23rd on that list, just behind Mark Baldwin. His career OOTP ERA of 3.26 makes for a npa ERA+ of 138. He struck out 3710 men (14th, 1 slot behind Kid Nichols) in 3466 1/3 IP (t58th). His 30 career shutouts places him 9th on the All Time list (t-Carl Hubbell).

Keefe appeared in 4 post seasons, but never made it to the WS.

Keefe narrowly missed being inducted on the FBS, but he enters in his first year of eligibility (having retired in 2062) with numbers in the Black Ink, Gray Ink, and HOFs categories all above the current Hall averages.

Black Ink: 34 (58)
Gray Ink: 203 (246)
HOFm: 165 (271)
HOFs: 56 (70)

Gorilla Composite: 3.9 (5.6)

--------------------------------------

As previously noted, Charlie Hough joins the league in 2068. Previous OOTP HOFer Duke Sims also joins the league.

Class of 2069 (1997): Newhouser, Speaker

The American League has done away with the DH starting in 2069! Maybe it will happen IRL before then....

I have been following the Orioles, but letting the AI make all of the moves. I stopped playing out games because of the relief pitcher bug that Dutch Alexander found, and Marcus says is fixed in v 14.

The change came with no notice, so now, starting in Center Field for the Orioles....Pedro Guerrero!!! Gotta love it. Lou Gehrig isn't getting moved from first base anytime soon......

----------------------------------------

Both entrants are RL HOFers (47th and 48th). Both entrants were inducted in the other HOF (51st and 52nd). This makes them the 20th and 21st RL HOFers to be inducted into both converted tractor sheds.

---------------------------------------

Hal Newhouser was drafted by the Memphis Intrepid in the 2047 draft following their inaugural season. He was the second player chosen in the draft.

His rookie season he posted a 13-13 record for a 66 win team. He only won 8 games in each of his next 2 seasons vs double digit losses. Memphis didn't win 70 games either of these years.

Memphis got a little bit better, but Newhouser came into his own. Stll a sub .500 club, Hewhouser posted 16-4 and 16-7 records for Memphis over the next 2 seasons. Striking out a career high 313 men in 228 innings of work in his free agent year of 2052, Newhouser took the opportunity to take a large series of checks from a contending Mets team.

In 2053, Newhouser took the Mets to the play-offs. He would see the post season with them in each of the next 4 years. Finding run support, finally, Newhouser brought his new home team 22 wins and only was tagged with 3 defeats. Newhouser struck out 312 men, that campaign, in 230 2/3 IP, while walking a mere 63. His OOTP ERA of 2.15 was good for Cy Young Award honors and a 197 npa ERA+.

More importantly, Newhouser led the Mets to a WS win. He is the first player from this squad to be inducted into the HOF.

In 2054, Newhouser surpassed his previous year's performance. He only won 14 games, but he was only hit with 4 losses in 31 starts. His OOTP ERA of 167 gave him a 257 npa ERA+. The CYA voters chose to give the trophy to a 20 game winner who's 58.3 VORP was dwarfed by Newhouser's 84.0.

Newhouser called it quits with 15 seasons under his belt in 2062. He enters the HOF 73rd on the career win list. His career record of 201-137 makes for a 0.595 win % (71st, 1 slot behind John Ewing). He struck out 3429 batters (31st, 14 behind Curt Schilling) in 3148 2/3 IP. His 3.26 career OOTP ERA translates into a dominant 141 npa ERA+.

Hi 9.801 K/9 ratio is 42 nd best and 0.001 behind Charlie Ferguson.

An 8 time All Star, Newhouser enters the HOF with Black and Gray Ink numbers exceeding the current Hall averages.

Black Ink: 35 (47)
Gray Ink: 183 (180)
HOFm: 163.7 (140)
HOFs: 42 (34)

Gorilla Composite: 3.6 (3.5)

--------------------------------

Tris Speaker was selected by the Athletics with the 3rd pick in the 2037 draft. He played through the 2061 season, but did not retire until January of 2063, hoping for an opportunity to reach 3500 hits that never came.

Speaker enters the HOF 5th on the All Time hit list, between Rusty Staub and Albet Pujols. He sported a career slash line of 341/426/523 (5th/4th/*) for a studly npa OPS+ of 156 which compares to his RL OPS+ of 157.

An 11 time All-Star, Speaker won 6 GGs, 3 in center field and 3 in right field(I like that OOTP breaks down the OF positions).

He enters the HOF as the All Time leader in doubles with 814. Actually, he is tied for the All-Time lead. That player with whom he is tied is a candidate awaits induction. The Selection Committee seems to be holding some personal issues against him.

Speaker, on the other hand, enters as a first ballotter in his first year of eligibility. He hit 304 HRs, stole 573 bases (26th) and scored 1858 times (12th, between Staub and Norm Cash). He also drove in 1638 runs (48th, 6 ahead of Boog Powell).

In 2043 he had his first of six 200 hit seasons. Slashing 363/443/598 (npa OPS+ 173), Speaker took home his one career MVP Award.

Leaving Oakland for Jacksonville, and then from Jacksonville to the Bronx, Speaker, as if the subject of a John Denver song, left the Apple for a place he'd never been before, Denver, Colorado.

2055 was his first year as a Rockie. At the age of 34 he had his 6th 200 hit season and played a key(stone?) role in bringing the WS trophy to the Denver faithful. He is the first player from this team to be inducted into the HOF.

Tris Speaker enters the HOF with the highest HOFs score of any inductee.

Black Ink: 45 (34)
Gray Ink: 187 (346)
HOFm: 329 (248)
HOFs: 85 (73)

Gorilla Composite: 6.9 (6.7)

-----------------------------

Previous HOFer Hanley Ramirez enters the league in 2069.

Class of 2070 (1998): Henderson, Murray, Nolan

15 more classes after this one, then on to v14! In a complete flip flop from the previous HOF, there are many hitting candidates in the spreadsheet and very few pitchers. As was the case with the pitchers in the last HOF, the only way a hitter can be certain of getting in before this world comes to an end is to get in on the First Ballot Standard. If he doesn't, his fate lies in the hands of the fickle Selection Committee.

---------------------------------------

If there was any further need to demonstrate that the OOTP HOF selection process is lacking, the fact that Rickey Henderson was not inducted by the software ends all argument. Just ask Rickey.

There is only one Rickey. Again, just ask Rickey.

There may be no player in this game that is more fun for me to play with than Rickey. Rickey says,"What do you mean may be?"

Good point, Rickey.

Rickey was the 6th player chosen in the 2040 draft. Me and Rickey both wonder what the first 5 teams were thinking. The Cubs and the Wrigley faithful were delighted to have him.

Rickey did what Rickey does from the start. A broken wrist towards the end of his first Spring Training delayed his debut (which disappointed no one more than Rickey). In 138 games he hit .308, scored 103 runs, and stole 62 bases in 82 attempts. He finished second in the SB race by 2. He finished first in ROY voting, which he dubbed "Rickey of the Year."

In each of his next 4 seasons he walked at least 103 times and scored at least 113 runs. He stole 100 bases in 2044 and a career high 115 in 2045. Then he became a free agent.

In what was the most unshocking development in OOTP history, Rickey placed a high value on his talents. The teams didn't think Rickey was worth what Rickey thought he was worth. So, Rickey did not play.

On June 15, 2046, Rickey signed on with the Astros at a $4.5M/yr rate for the rest of the season. Rickey had enough of a vacation. Rickey set out to prove the doubters wrong. Rickey did.

Rickey slashed 324/426/532 in 83 regular season games for Houston. These would all stand as career highs. His 160 npa OPS+ would also stand as a career high. Rickey was not done.

In the post season Rickey batted .293 and stole 8 bases with 0 CS as he led the Astros to a WS win.

Rickey was pleased. The Astros were pleased. They gave him a long term deal.

Rickey liked Houston. Houston liked Rickey.

10 years later, Rickey again led the Astros to WS victory.

In 7 post seasons, Rickey stole 20 bases and was caught once (the ump blew the call, according to Rickey). Rickey is the first player from either of these squads to be inducted in the HOF.

Rickey played through the 2059 season and retired in 2060. He retired with 929 SBs (3rd, behind HOFers Tony Campana and Eddie Collins Sr), 2345 hits, and 1675 runs scored (20th, 10 ahead of Jose Reyes). He drove in 1167 runs and walked 1650 times (7th, no eligible player has more walks and is not already in the HOF).

He led the league in SB each year from 2043 to 2046. 5 times he led the league in walks. Twice he led in runs scored.

A 6 time All Star, Rickey won 4 GGs in his career. Rickey enters the HOF by virtue of his Black Ink number being above the HOF average.

Rickey Henderson is the 49th RL HOFer to be inducted, here.

Black Ink: 25 (50)
Gray Ink: 95 (143)
HOFm: 74 (181)
HOFs: 49 (53)

Gorilla Composite: 3.1 (5.2)

-----------------------------------

The Selection Committee called on the way back machine to fetch Red Murray for enshrinement.

Red Murray was the 4th player selected in the 2010 draft. He was taken by his classmate's favorite club, the Astros.

He won Rookie of the year in 2011 by cracking 199 hits, batting .319, hitting 36 HRs, collectine 199 RBI and scoring 122 times. He also hit 13 riples to lead the league. He also stole 44 bases, for good measure.

He followed up in 2012 with an MVP season where he slashed 336/398/658. This would be a career high slg%. His 184 npa OPS+ would also stand as a career high. He it 44 HRs, drove in 125, and scored 120 in just 128 games.

Murray collected over 220 hts in each of his next two seasons. Then he was felled by injuries. The Astros chose to let him go to free agency prior to the 2019 season. Murray, appropriately, took a 1 year deal with the Reds.

Red could not keep a regular spot in the Red line-up, and didn't perform well when given the opportunity. He had to settle for a minor league offer from Philadelphia in the off-season.

Murray was solid, but not spectacular, in 2020. He did play in 159 games and did score over 100 runs and steal 34 bases, but had a .263 ave and a npa OPS+ of 91.

Philly offered him a 3yr $10m contract and Murray took it. Philly got their $10m worth in 2021, alone.

325/376/503 Murray slashed in 116 games (npa OPS+139). He again stole 30 bases and helped the Phillies win the WS. He joins team mates Ralph Kiner and Mike Piazza in the HOF.

For his career, Murray slashed 302/356/501 for a npa OPS+ of 134. He collected 1854 hits, hit 264 HRs, stole 447 bases (61st), and scored an even 1100 runs.

Like his classmate, Murray was a 6 time All Star. He won 2 GGs in RF.

Red Murray enters on the Veteran Standard at age 79.

Black Ink: 7 (4)
Gray Ink: 114 (57)
HOFm: 101 (7)
HOFs: 40 (11)

Gorilla Composite: 2.5 (0.8)

--------------------------------

On their return trip fetching Red Murray, the Selection Committee picked up Gary Nolan.

Nolan was selected by the Twins with the 3rd overall pick in the 2024 draft. At age 62, Nolan gave his acceptance speech.

Nolan won 16 games in his rookie season striking out 253 in 244 innings. His sophomore season was cut short by an injury that required Tommy John surgery.

He came back as a servicable pitcher, and from 2028 through 2033 made at leats 32 starts a season and had an OOTP ERA below 4 in each season and a winning record in all but 1 season. He was no longer fanning a man an inning, but he was getting the job done.

Now striking out men at about half the rate he did prior to the TJ surgery, Nolan put together the season of his career in 2034. He posted a 23-5 mark with a 2.23 OOTP ERA (npa ERA+ 176). In 250 1/3 IP he struck out 150 and walked only 26 for a season WHIP figure of 0.92. This was good for a Cy Young Award.

For his career, Nolan won 258 games (t- 9th, Bill J Sweeney) against 191 losses. He had a career OOTP ERA of 3.65 for a npa ERA+ of 119.

He struck out 3171 men (43rd, 1 spot ahead of Carl Hubbell) in 4107 1/3 IP (11th, 1 slot behind Don Sutton) while walking only 852. His career 1.867 w/9 rate is 32nd best All Time, 0.004 better than Fergie Jenkins.

A 3 time All Star, Nolan won 2 GGs. Nolan enters the HOF for being the highest ranking eligible pitcher on the VORP list (698.45, 22nd).

Black Ink: 25 (7)
Gray Ink: 143 (56)
HOFm: 90 (43)
HOFs: 48 (26)

Gorilla Composite: 2.8 (1.2)

ADD: Dizzy Dean joins the league in 2070.

This World is Ending!

It came earlier than I expected, but the real player database has been exhausted, so this coming class will be the last of this HOF. 2 hitters and one pitcher will be inducted, and then it is done.

While I am sad that there will only be 181 inductees instead of 209, I am happy to be downloading v 14 and implement the neat stuff I have thought of while doing this HOF.

"My" Orioles are in the play-offs and it would be cool if they win a title in the Swan Song season of 2070.

So, starting in 1973 with 24 teams and allowing league evolution to occur after 2012 and expand the league, eventually to 36 teams, I got 98 seasons with RL players and RL players, only.

Before posting the final class, I will make a couple posts noting notable performances that did not get honored through induction.

Non-HOF Hitting Leaders

The following is a list of the leaders in each category NOT in the HOF. Each player listed as at least 10 years of service time at the ML level and is eligible of HOF consideration.

Their respective place on the list and their eligibility status (Eligible, Year Eligible if retired for less than 5 years, or Active)

Ave: Tony Gwynn Sr, .3463, 3rd, Active
OBP: Chris Parmelee, .4341, 1st, Active
SLG: Eddie Mathews, .6745, 2nd, Active

AB: Cap Anson, 11632, 4th, Eligible
Runs: Joe L Morgan, 2090, 4th, Eligible in 2075
Hits: Cap Anson, 3262, 11th, Eligible
Total Bases: Willie Stargell, 5635, 9th, Active
Singles: Stan Hack, 2180, t-8th, Active
Doubles: Cap Anson, 814, t-1st, Eligible
Triples: Jimmy Rollins, 132, 2nd, Eligible
Home Runs: Willie Stargell, 778, 2nd, Active
RBI: Mike Schmidt, 2070, 7th, Eligible 2073
Stolen Bases: Cozy A Dolan, 881, 4th, Eligible
Caught Stealing: Cozy A Dolan, 303, 4th, Eligible
Walks: Joe L Morgan, 2402, 1st, Eligible in 2075
Strikeouts: Greg Luzinski, 2981, 1st, Eligible in 2074
WAR: Lou Gehrig, 129.96, 6th, Active

--------------------------------------------

I was really puling for The Bull to reach 3000 Ks, but it was not meant to be. He hit 613 HRs and carried a npa OPS+ of 129, so he probably would be in the Hall, eventually, if it continued.

Eddie Mathews has played 12 years and won 8 MVPs. He has 662 HRs and a npa OPS+ of 192. He is averaging 62 HRs per 162 games and playing in a 158 game season environment. He was on his way to being a Once in a Generation player.

Harry Lumley, not listed here, is the player who won back-to-back-to-back Triple Crowns, with the last 2 including SB leading seasons also. He is still active, but injuries have reduced his output. He has 2475 hits, and 494 HRs. 225 of his home runs came in his triple crown seasons.

Cap Anson was not dominating on a season to season basis. He did not have the numbers to get in on the Standard Standard, but has the numbers to be a Veteran inductee. 2071 was his first year to be eligible for Veteran Screening, but the slots were filled before his name came up.

Chris Parmelee has been treated very kindly by the development engine. With 11 seasons under his belt, he has 386 HRs and a slash line of 312/434/570 (35th/1st/30th) and is 7th on the career OPS list and carries a 178 npa OPS+.

Non-HOF Pitching Leaders

Same sort of display here that was used for the hitters in the previous post. The 2071 inductees were selected before these posts were made. No one on these lists are entered in the final class.

----------------------------------------

ERA: Aaron Poreda, 2.780, 4th, Eligible
Wins: Eddie Cicotte, 261, 7th, Eligible
Losses: Jack Morris, 232, 2nd, Eligible
Win %: Roy Halladay, .6753, 2nd, Active
Saves: Charlie Geggus, 488, 3rd, Active
Games: Lindy McDaniel, 1293, 2nd, Eligible
Games Started: Nolan Ryan, 685, Eligible in 2075
Complete Games: Josh Tomlin, 169, 3rd, Eligible
Shutouts: Marty O'Toole, 38, t-1st, Eligible
Innings Pitched: Nolan Ryan, 4371, 7th, Eligible in 2075
Hits Allowed: Eddie Cicotte, 4233, 2nd, Eligible
Home Runs Allowed: Gaylord Perry, 445, 7th, Eligible
Strikeouts: Nolan Ryan, 5393, 2nd, Eligible in 2075
Walks: Nolan Ryan, 2425, 1st, Eligible in 2075
BB/9: John H Murphy, 0.836, 2nd, Eligible in 2076
H/9: Frank J Pearce, 6.662, 2nd, Eligible
K/9: John H Fitzgerald, 12.275, 4th, Eligible
VORP: Lefty Grove, 840.46, 10th, Eligible in 2073
WHIP: James Burke, 0.971, 2nd, Eligible in 2074
OpAVE: Frank J Pearce, .2071, 3rd, Eligible
OpOBP: James Burke, .2565, 2nd Eligible in 2074
OpSlg: Charlie Sprague, .2879, 2nd, Eligible
OpOPS: Charlie Sprague, .5996, 1st, Eligible
WAR: Greg Maddux, 121.01, 5th, Active

-----------------------------

Eddie Cicotte won 20 games his rookie season, and that was it. He struck out 200 in a season only once in his 20 year career and carried an ERA+ of 110. He didn't win a Cy Young Award. In spite of having the 7th highest win total in league history, he could not get in.

Two pitchers managed to win 300 games in what was, essentially, a 2012 environment league, Walter Johnson and Charlie Ferguson. Johnson is not a surprise. Ferguson seems to get consistently kind treatment from the development dice, in my experience. That was in v 13. We will see how he does in v14.

Frank Killen is the number 1 pitcher on the win % list, but he has not put in 10 years of service. In 6 seasons he is 97-41 and has won 2 CYAs.

Final Batting Leaderboard

This is the final batting leader board. It is valuable to note that these career records were set with injuries on 'high'. Willie McCovey played from 2005 though 2024. He had a 162 game average of 59 Hrs and 150 RBI. Had he not missed time in his prime due to injury, he could have broken 1200 HRs and 3000 RBI.

Even with the High injury setting, we see very long careers happening. Joe Morgan logged 27 years of ML service.

Lefty Grove's .947 win% season is a record of 18-1. He made 27 starts and had one CG after having 10 CGs the year before.

Class of 2071 (1999): Heilmann, Rodriguez, Carpenter --- FINAL CLASS

Harry Heilmann was selected with the second over all pick in the 2030 draft by the Chicago White Sox. He retired following the 2052 season with a career BA of .302, and OBP of .368 and a slg% of .508. His npa OPS+ is 137.

Heilmann collected 3062 hits and hit 407 HRs and had 1669 RBI (44th, between Alex Rodriguez and Beals Becker). He hit 671 doubles (13th, between Hal McRae and Nap Lajoie) and scored 1612 times (30th, between Carl Yastrzemski and Mel Ott).

Had he retired in 2065, his numbers would have been good enough to get in on the First Ballot Standard, but in 2058, his first year of eligibility, they were not.

Heilmann got the unofficial "Dick Allen Award" in the previous HOF for being the best eligible hitter that was not inducted. Here he gets in just under the wire.

Heilmann was named to 7 All Star teams and, shockingly, managed to win a GG in RF.

Heilmann had 200 hits in a season 4 times in his career. Heilmann enters the HOF at the age of 58 with Gray Ink, HOFm, and HOFs numbers all above the Hall averages.

He is the 50th, and final, RL HOFer to gain entry into this HOF.

Black Ink: 15 (21)
Gray Ink: 136 (244)
HOFm: 221.5 (188)
HOFs: 65 (57)

Gorilla Composite: 4.3 (4.8)

-----------------------------------

There were plenty of guys I was pulling for to find their way into the HOF on this last ballot. That Alex Rodriguez is the final hitter to get a spot in the shrine (does he even know where Iowa is?) in the converted tractor shed at the Dyersville Field of Dreams, demonstrates I absolutely, positively played no favorites (or unfavorites).

Rodriguez was selected by the Dallas Burn with the 12th pick in the 2040 draft. At the age of 17, he played in 93 games, batted .241 and hit 11 HRs.

In 2044 he hit 37 HRs and batted .300. This would be his only season in which he batted .300.

His best season, from a npa OPS+ standpoint, was in 2049 when as a member of the Padres (and in his free agent season, go figure) he hit a career high 53 HRs and slashed 272/343/563. His slg% and RBI total of 136 were also career highs.

He signed a 7yr deal with the Mets that Off season for nearly $20M per season. He stayed with them until he retired in 2060.

In 2053 he had his worst full season. He batted .211 with 19 HRs in 158 games (out of a 158 game season). In spite of this woeful output, teammates like HOFer Hal Newhouser and a guy named Schmidt at 3b carried him and the Mets to a WS title.

How accurate is OOTP? In 69 post season games, A-Rod batted a -buck-96. Gotta love that.

A-Rod appeared in 4 All-Star games, but won 0 GGs. His career slash line of 253/321/466 (npa OPS+ 119) has George Perring scratching his head.

A-Rod hit 550 HRs (49th) in his career and drove in 1688 (43rd, between Troy Tulowitski and Harry Heilmann) and scored 1515 times (t-56th). He also struck out 2502 times (8th).

Rodriguez enters the HOF by virtue of his HOFm/s numbers being above the Hall averages.

Black Ink: 18
Gray Ink: 90
HOFm: 190.5
HOFs: 59

Gorilla Composite: 3.8

--------------------------------------------

Chris Carpenter is the final pitcher and the final player to be enshrined. With a name like Carpenter, he belongs in the converted tractor shed.

Carpenter was taken by the Pirates with the first pick of the 2033 draft.

During his career he won 225 games (t-37th, george Davies) and 2 Cy Young Awards. He took losses 145 times. In 2043 and 2044 he anchored the Padre staff as the won consecutive WS. HOF Willie Mays was another star on the team.

Carpenter struck out an even 2700 men (93rd, 8 behind Red Ehret) in 3284 IP (85th).

Carpenter gets into the HOF on the Veteran Standard in his first year of being eligible for the Veteran Standard, at the age of 57, having retired in 2051.

Black Ink: 10
Gray Ink: 121
HOFm: 109.3
HOFs: 49

Gorilla Composite: 2.5

--------------------------------------

Harry Heilmann is the second player to be inducted (Johnny Mize) who has all 9 of his most similar players already in the HOF. They are (starting with most similar): Keith Hernandez, Steve Evans, Steve Garvey, Dave Parker, George Brett, Shoeless Joe Jackson, Richie Hebner, Dusty Baker, and Hal McCrae.

Dick Allen Award ---> Wayne Belardi

A very quick designation (but since it is me doing it, it is quite official) of the best hitter that was eligible for HOF induction that did not get in. Bellardi was a 7 time All Star.

Formerly the Bert "Be Home" Blyleven Award ---> Jerry "Rolls" Reuss

Restating that the aim of this HOF model is not to get in the best players all of the time, but to mimic the, sometimes, capricious selection process of RL.

Reuss was a 3 time All Star and a CYA winner in 1993.

Final HOF Chart

The final Gorilla Composite mean is 3.8. There wasn't enough opportunity for enough entries to raise this to 3.9, as I earlier predicted.

The median is 3.4. The median entrant is Don Sutton at 159 (highlighted).

The standard deviation of the Gorilla Composite scores is 1.6.
