1979 MLB Draft

Name:  ColtThompson.PNG
Views: 92
Size:  44.7 KB
The top draftee in 1979 was Colt Thompson, RHP out of BYU. His overall potential rating is quite high but his potential movement and control are both below average.

Name:  GirardFarney.PNG
Views: 88
Size:  43.7 KB
The top hitter was a catcher -- Girard Farney out of Tennessee. He looks solid both offensively and defensively and should provide great value for the Expos.

Name:  BenHyde.PNG

Size:  39.1 KB
No high school player was drafted until pick 11 when the Pirates took righty Ben Hyde out of Peshtigo.

1979 Hall of Fame

Name:  TonySnowHOF.PNG
Views: 76
Size:  270.8 KB
Tony Snow, RF

Snow was a very well-rounded player who could have had an even greater career were it not due to injuries. He had seven seasons of 20+ HR and another two with 30+. He was also good for 10-20 SB a year and average RF defense. He did spend a lot of time on the injured list but most were for a few weeks at a time. He retires in the top 5-10 range of all-time RF along with fellow inductee Moe Fay.

Initial Acquisition: Drafted 10th overall in 1957 by the Giants out of Wiregrass Ranch

MLB Awards: 1 Tomas Reed MVP, 1 ROY, 1 Youssef Raadouni GG, 3 AS, 6 SS, 2 WS, 1PMVP

Career Stats: 91855 PA, 2274 H, 322 HR, 191 SB, .357 wOBA, 135 wRC+, -11.3 ZR, 65.2 WAR, 52 JAWS

Name:  MoeFayHOF.PNG
Views: 75
Size:  270.1 KB
Moe Fay, RF

Fay was nearly the AL-equivalent of Snow, even sharing the same uniform number, but his career got off to a much different start. Fay was drafted in the 7th round as a possible 4th OF/4-A player but took a huge leap during the 1961 and 1962 seasons. 1960: High school senior; 1961: Rookie ball; 1962: A/A+ Ball; 1963: Opening day right fielder for the A's. He led the league in HR twice and very rarely stole a base and provided above-average defense.

Initial Acquisition: Drafted 201st overall in 1960 by the Athletics out of Tappan Zee

MLB Awards: 1 Tomas Reed MVP, 3 Youssef Raadouni GG, 4 AS, 4 SS, 1 PMVP

Career Stats: 9984 PA, 2015 H, 360 HR, 3 SB, .345 wOBA, 124 wRC+, 32.9 ZR, 58.5 WAR, 48.7 JAWS

Name:  JulianForemanHOF.PNG
Views: 76
Size:  269.0 KB
Julian Foreman, LF

The two LF inductees this year land in the same top 5-10 range at their position as the two RF. Foreman spent his entire career with the Astros as an OBP machine. He had five straight seasons of 20+ HR and a total of seven in his career, including a late-career rebound at age 38. He also put up four seasons of 20+ SB, but only one 20/20 season.

Initial Acquisition: Drafted 3rd overall in 1958 by the Astros out of Teutopolis

MLB Awards: 5 AS, 7 SS

Career Stats: 10629 PA, 2324 H, 300 HR, 242 SB, .351 wOBA, 125 wRC+, -10.7 ZR, 57.8 WAR, 46.6 JAWS

Name:  VinceAndrewsHOF.PNG
Views: 75
Size:  278.4 KB
Vince Andrews, LF

Andrews had the second-most SB for any LF outside of those who played in the first two decades of the 1900s -- only J.D. Jackson has more. Andrews did miss a few chunks of time due to injuries -- oblique strain, strained ACL, sprained ankle, strained back muscle, torn meniscus, hamstring strain, etc. But while he was healthy he provided value getting on base, being on base, and in the outfield.

Initial Acquisition: Drafted 12th overall in 1962 by the Cubs out of St Marys

MLB Awards: 2 Youssef Raadouni GG, 5 AS, 1 WS

Career Stats: 8154 PA, 1992 H, 7 HR, 372 SB, .332 wOBA, 118 wRC+, 81.1 ZR, 53.5 WAR, 45.1 JAWS

Jameon Spry, 1B

Spry is the next in the long line of misused sluggers. He had no business wearing any fielding glove but inexplicably was put at first base day after day for 12 years. He led the league 8 times in HR but put up a total of 5.5 WAR in those seasons because of his atrocious defense. He retires with the 10th most HR all-time and like six others in the top 10 in that category, he will not be elected to the Hall of Fame. Only Solomon Stubbs, Vito Fernandez, and David Findlay are in the top 10 all-time in HR and elected to the HOF.

Initial Acquisition: Drafted 660th overall in 1959 by the Dodgers out of Clayton Valley
Drafted 469th overall in 1960 by the Dodgers out of Clayton Valley
Drafted 384th overall in 1962 by the Giants out of Maryland

MLB Awards: 3 WS, 2 PMVP

Career Stats: 7897 PA, 1830 H, 412 HR, 23 SB, .332 wOBA, 115 wRC+, -246.7 ZR, 1.8 WAR, 9.7 JAWS

Advanced Batting Stat Calculations

In preparation for finding the new names for the Silver Slugger Awards, I wanted to have the ability to calculate the advanced offensive stats on my own. With the help of cavebutter and his awesome website, I've been able to do that in R. Like cavebutter, I do have some error associated with it, my thought is it is possibly coming from sac hits? I haven't done a huge amount of testing but what I have done shows that my numbers are 2% too low on average.

Silver Slugger Award Name Changes

In 1980, the manufacturer of Louisville Slugger bats first awarded the Silver Slugger. We have now reached 1980 in this league and I will be renaming the Silver Slugger award in each league (excluding the minor leagues) in honor of a particularly memorable hitter. I typically like to name awards for players who played in the early beginnings of the league, but the recent hitting boom in the Majors has led to many 40 and 50 year-old retirees getting the nod.

MLB: Paul Vines, RF
Vines simply has provided the most offensive value in MLB history. He is first all-time in Runs Created, wRC, wRAA, and BatR. He also ranks highly in some of the rate stats as well, with a minimum 3,000 PA - 3rd in RC/27, 14th in wOBA, and 6th in wRC+. He won the Silver Slugger 10 times in the Major Leagues and three times in high school.

Other options: Arnold White was the second player to 3,000 hits and the oldest player in the top 15 in hitting. Vito Fernandez was also an option. He had a higher total career value in a shorter timeframe than Vines but some of that value came from the glove as well.


NCAA: Arnold White, RF (Kentucky Wildcats)
White missed out on the MLB award so he deserves to be the NCAA namesake. He was a 7-time silver slugger in the Major Leagues and still only one of three players to have 3,000 career hits. He was a 1st overall draftee that had the absolute fulfillment of his potential.

Other options: UCLA Bruin Meredith Applewhite had perhaps a slightly better offensive MLB career than White but I did want to give it to White mostly due to his age.


California Interscholastic Federation (CIF): Urdar Arisson, LF (Central Grizzlies)
Arisson only won the Silver Slugger once in his MLB career but he did win the award four times in high school. He had much greater potential but struggled with injuries his entire career.

Other options: Clayton Heise never won the Silver Slugger in the MLB but did win twice in High School and was drafted 3rd overall in 1951.


Florida High School Athletic Association (FLHSAA): Tony Snow, RF (Wiregrass Ranch Bulls)
Snow was just inducted into the Hall of Fame and now this. He won the MLB silver slugger six times and the high school award twice. In 1957 when Snow was drafted with the 110th overall pick, I'm sure a Rookie of the Year and MVP award would have seemed out of his reach, but he sure turned it on after signing with the Giants. Fellow Bull Gilson Cravoa has the Florida MVP award named after him.

Other options: Noah Sylvain


Georgia High School Association (GHSA): Landon Smythe, 1B (North Cobb Warriors)
Smythe won 7 silver sluggers on his way to a Hall of Fame career. Both Wesley Haley (Fielding Award) and Everett Williams (Pitching Award) also attended North Cobb - a school with an esteemed history to be sure.

Other options: Other top hitters from Georgia include Rio Aldrich, Devan Quade, and Kerry Law.


Illinois High School Association (IHSA): Julian Foreman, LF, (Teutopolis Wooden Shoes)
Foreman has far and away been the best hitter out of Illinois, one of three Hall of Fame inductees this year to receive the award. Seven of his nine silver slugger awards were won in the MLB. He attended the same high school as Devon McFadden after whom the pitching award is named.

New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA): Moe Fay, RF (Tappan Zee Dutchmen)
Fay is another of the recent Hall of Fame inductees to get an award named after him. He won four silver sluggers in the majors, two in the minors, and one in high school. He wasn't much to look at as a high school draftee, getting drafted in the 7th round, but he was able to turn his career around quite extremely.

New Mexico Activities Association (NMAA): Kengo Toyoshima, 1B (Rio Rancho Rams)
Toyoshima had quite possibly the longest MLB career of all-time, including the future. He retired amazingly at age 47, meaning he spent time in the Major Leagues in four decades. He did win two silver sluggers in the Major Leagues, one in the minor leagues, and two in high school.

Other options: Elliot Raprap


North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA): Leo McCanna, LF (Wesleyan Christian Academy Trojans)
McCanna spent his entire career with the Marlins after getting drafted 7th overall. He failed to sign out of high school and went to the University of Washington. He won five silver sluggers in the MLB, two in the minors, two in high school, and one in college.

Other options: Lester Taylor, Travis Newbold, Cody Vitale, Thomas Hagan


Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA): Guy Hubbell, RF (Sheldon Irish)
Hubbell led the league in HR and OPS four times. He won the MLB silver slugger five times, in high school four times, and in the minor leagues once. Wyatt Overton and Borya Yevgenyan also attended Sheldon High School.

Other options: David Findlay, Casey West, Aiden Shelton


Texas University Interscholastic League (TUIL): Christian Barnett, CF (El Dorado Aztecs)
Texas has a great history of hitting prospects and Christian Barnett comes out as one of the best. He won two silver sluggers in the majors and dominated the TUIL in the 1930s. The top two hitters already have awards so they were ineligible, opening up the door for Barnett. C.J. Steiner, the gold glove award namesake also attended El Dorado.

Other options: Paul Vines, Phoenix Amoss, Keith Blas, Levi Bryant, Leo Mendoza


Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA): Nick Reed, CF (Hortonville Polar Bears)
Nick Reed is one of only two players at defense-first positions to have the slugging award named after him. The 3-time silver slugger and 2-time MVP should probably have been moved out of CF later in his career but he did still make the Hall of Fame despite his poor defense in the latter part of his time on the diamond.

Other options: Johan Velez, Harold Bach

1980 Top 100 Prospects

A new decade in the Major Leagues brings a new top prospect. Colt Thompson, last year's top draftee, is the new player in the first slot. He is already in AA and has three elite pitches but will always struggle with home runs and walks.

Colombian SS Francisco Rocha climbs into the top hitting spot after spending two years in the minor leagues. He is also in AA and will look to make an impact with the Indians as early as next season.

1980 MLB Draft

Name:  VJCallais.PNG
Views: 24
Size:  44.8 KB
The first pick of the 1980's is V.J. Callais, a hard working and intelligent second basemen out of the University of California. He was originally drafted in the 3rd round out of high school by the Rockies but didn't sign.

Name:  TomassoBreaux.PNG
Views: 24
Size:  43.0 KB
The first high school draftee was also a second baseman, 18-year-old Tomasso Breaux from Naples High School. He currently has a torn labrum injury he suffered back in April of this year.

Name:  JiriDivis.PNG
Views: 25
Size:  41.9 KB
The top pitcher draftee went right after Breaux -- righty Jiri Divis. He is a nearly MLB ready starter with solid stuff, movement, and control.
