1982 Hall of Fame

Name:  BrandonPeresHOF.PNG

Brandon Peres, C - SPECIAL ELECTION

The induction for Peres is long overdue and the league did not want the 87-year-old to pass before receiving his due. When compared against all other catchers in Major League history and especially to those in the Hall of Fame, Peres simply just fits. He was a switch-hitter with a solid bat and glove, bouncing around from San Diego to New York to Oakland, Seattle, and San Francisco. A 16-year career behind the plate ended in 1935. When the Padres drafted him, he had very little potential, but he worked hard to slowly improve that potential and to fulfill all of it. He had an elite eye to go along with very good contact and power.

Initial Acquisition: Drafted 568th overall in 1917 by the Padres out of San Francisco

MLB Awards: 2 GG, 2 AS, 1 SS, 1 WS

Career Stats: 7548 PA, 1663 H, 109 HR, 0 SB, .330 wOBA, 99 wRC+, 3.1 ZR, 35.3 WAR, 28.6 JAWS

Robinson Barquero, CF

Barquero's career recalls the origins of the league when the stolen base was an extremely common occurrence. He is the only player in the top 40 of stolen bases all-time who was born after the year 1894 and still comes in at number 17. A huge reason that he had so many stolen bases was that he got on base very often, leading the league twice in OBP. He ranks 10th all-time in walks and 11th in hits. In terms of his overall value, Barquero comes in behind Johan Velez as the second-best CF of all-time and lands in the top-20 of all hitters to ever play the game.

Initial Acquisition: Signed in 1957 with the Dodgers out of the Dominican Republic

MLB Awards: 1 Tomas Reed MVP, 6 AS, 7 Paul Vines SS, 1 WS

Career Stats: 12123 PA, 2784 H, 89 HR, 627 SB, .329 wOBA, 116 wRC+, -35.3 ZR, 69.3 WAR, 56.3 JAWS

Jay Hutton, C

Hutton's career was a little short but dominant as a hitter at the catching position, winning the Paul Vines slugging award in nearly half of his seasons. He wasn't very adept with the glove but for a year when he put together a good string of games and won the Youssef Raadouni Gold Glove.

Initial Acquisition: Drafted 13th overall in 1968 by the Blue Jays out of South Carolina

MLB Awards: 1 ROY, 1 Youssef Raadouni GG, 2 AS, 5 Paul Vines SS

Career Stats: 6067 PA, 1517 H, 105 HR, 9 SB, .334 wOBA, 109 wRC+, -12.6 ZR, 34.4 WAR, 29.7 JAWS

Isaac Porter, RHP

Porter won a lot of World Series for someone drafted by the Diamondbacks. He had a very good career and one he could be proud of as a 1st overall pick, but didn't quite have the peak to bring his JAWS score high enough for Hall entry. He retires with the 3rd most strikeouts all-time but only finished in the top-three in J.P. Avila award voting once. He did win the Joe Hubbard award while in college.

Initial Acquisition: Drafted 1st overall in 1965 by the Diamondbacks out of Mississippi

MLB Awards: 3 AS, 2 WS

Career Stats: 3718 IP, 1489 BB, 2803 K, 3.53 FIP, 92 FIP-, 62.7 WAR, 48.1 JAWS

Top Manager Calculations

The Manager of the Year award names will be changing and I wanted to at least look at this somewhat objectively. I came up with four easy categories to rank the manager: Longevity, Winning Percentage, Playoff Appearances, and Championships. For each category, I used the z-score (ignoring that this is not really normally distributed data) to rank the managers in each league and then add those together to form a final score. Longevity = number of games, Winning Percentage = Number of Games above .500, Playoff Appearances and Championships are self-explanatory.

I wasn't able to find the data I needed in any form of database export, so I copy and pasted from the Managers screen in the League History Index and saved that all as a .csv.

For a quick and dirty calculation, I am pleased with the results.

---
title: "ManageroftheYear"
output: html_document
---

```{r setup, include=FALSE}
knitr::opts_chunk$set(echo = TRUE)
```

```{r Libraries}
library(tidyverse)
library(magrittr)
```

```{r Load data}
managers <- read_csv("managers.csv")

managers %<>%
mutate(games_above_500 = w-g/2)
```

```{r Z-scores}
managers %<>%
group_by(lg) %>%
mutate(longevity = scale(g),
winning = scale(games_above_500),
playoffs = scale(playoff_app),
championships_z = scale(championships)) %>%
ungroup() %>%
mutate(total = longevity + winning + playoffs + championships_z) %>%
arrange(lg, desc(total))
```

```{r Reduce to top-5 for each league}
manager_top_5 <- managers %>%
select(lg, manager, `from-to`, longevity, winning, playoffs, championships_z, total) %>%
group_by(lg) %>%
top_n(5, total)

Manager of the Year Award Name Changes

In 1983, the Baseball Writers' Association of America first awarded the Manager of the Year Award. We have now reached 1983 in this league and I will be renaming the Manager of the Year award in each league (excluding the minor leagues) in honor of a particularly memorable manager. Each skipper was ranked according to his longevity, winning percentage, playoff appearances, and championships.

MLB: Ken Haslam
Haslam was a conventional-style, balanced manager who preferred to control his lineup and pitching staff. He favored younger hitters and offense but was split between speed/power and AVG/OBP. His personality and style worked well for him as he managed all the way from 1900 to 1939 and won three World Series with two different organizations and made the playoffs 17 times. He managed in nearly 1700 more games than the second longest-tenured manager and won 876 more games than the second-winningest manager.

Team(s): Rangers - 7 years, Angels - 4 years, Indians - 28 years

Stats: From-To: 1900-1939, 39 Years, 6321 G, 3209 W, .508 WPct, 17 Playoffs, 3 Championships

Other options: Libor McAferty who has won the most World Series as a manager (4 with the Padres), and Chris Weichbrodt who also won three World Series but had a better winning percentage over 34 years, mostly with the Braves.


NCAA: Audun Bertelsen
Bertelsen led the Aztecs for the program's first 35 years and simply went to work and went about his business. He was a conventional manager and favored offense but didn't have much else special about him, besides his consistent ability to put together a winning team.

Team(s): San Diego State Aztecs - 35 years

Stats: From-To: 1900-1934, 35 Years, 1750 G, 920 W, .526 WPct, 19 Playoffs, 2 Championships

Other options: Thom Niklas did a good job for Vanderbilt for 23 years but didn't quite have Bertelsen's longevity.


California Interscholastic Federation (CIF): Chris Hives
Hives was a conventional manager and had a very easy-going style, which seemed to work well with his high school students. He favored hitting, offense, power, and OBP.

Team(s): Elk Grove Thundering Herd - 29 years

Stats: From-To: 1900-1928, 29 Years, 1162 G, 619 W, .533 WPct, 8 Playoffs, 5 Championships

Other options: No other managers were close, but the manager with the second-most amount of wins is R.J. Taylor, the former 1st overall draft pick for the Indians in 1907. He managed the Thundering Herd also, taking over for Hives and winning 2 state titles himself.


Florida High School Athletic Association (FLHSAA): Bubba Durante
Durante didn't have the longest tenure but he did have an extreme culture of winning. He was a balanced, strait-laced manager who favored offense and younger players. In the high school league only the top-2 teams meet in the playoffs, meaning that he finished either 1st or 2nd in the FLHSAA in half of his managerial seasons.

Team(s): Apopka Blue Darters - 20 years

Stats: From-To: 1911-1930, 20 Years, 803 G, 449 W, .559 WPct, 10 Playoffs, 7 Championships

Other options: Louis-Joseph Letendre had the longest tenure of any manager, but his teams were generally bad to average. Billy Stephens also had a good run but he didn't win as often as Durante.


Georgia High School Association (GHSA): Joe Adepoju
Adepoju was born in Atlanta and managed in Gainesville for 27 years. He was a conventional manager with a normal personality and didn't have any real strong strategies but was very good in the big games, only losing two out of 10 state championship matches.

Team(s): Gainesville Red Elephants - 27 years

Stats: From-To: 1900-1926, 27 Years, 1083 G, 586 W, .541 WPct, 8 Playoffs, 6 Championships

Other options: None


Illinois High School Association (IHSA): Rafael Otalora

Otalora has the most wins of any Illinois manager, helped in part to his longevity. He did have some very lean years toward the end of his career but still finished with a winning record. He was conventional and strait-laced with a strong preference for hitting, offense, and OBP. He won every state championship game which he managed.

Team(s): Teutopolis Wooden Shoes - 29 years

Stats: From-To: 1951-1979, 29 Years, 1162 G, 587 W, .505 WPct, 6 Playoffs, 6 Championships

Other options: Chris Wright got to the playoffs more often but had a shorter career and didn't win as many titles. Lane Eatherly had a a great winning percentage in the regular season but only managed for 24 years.


New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA): Jonah Shertok

Shertok was conventional in terms of his game strategy, but not with his attitude. He was fiery and would have outbursts if the team lost. Thankfully for the students, that wasn't very often. He would nearly ignore his pitching and fielding practice and would only focus on the hitters.

Team(s): Tappan Zee Dutchmen

Stats: From-To: 1923-1949, 27 Years, 1080 G, 587 W, .544 WPct, 9 Playoffs, 4 Championships

Other options: None


New Mexico Activities Association (NMAA): Donte McCladdie
McCladdie was a conventional and easygoing manager and his teams made the playoffs in three different decades. He slightly favored pitching but didn't have many strong preferences. His 699 wins as a manager is nearly 200 more than the next-highest total.

Team(s): Sandia Matadors - 34 years

Stats: From-To: 1900-1933, 34 Years, 1364 G, 699 W, .512 WPct, 12 Playoffs, 4 Championships

Other options: None


North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA): Mon-Soo Park
Park's longevity doesn't match up to some of the others on this list, but neither does their ability to win match up with his. He has double the amount of state titles than any other manager in league history and nearly double the amount of playoff appearances. He was a conventional manager who was more uptight but became relaxed as he aged. He kept full control over his lineups and rotations and stayed mostly balanced with his roster strategy.

Team(s): Cape Fear Colts - 22 years

Stats: From-To: 1954-1975, 22 Years, 884 G, 503 W, .569 WPct, 11 Playoffs, 8 Championships

Other options: None


Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA): Steve Sorensen
Sorenson was a conventional manager with a controlling personality. He was a disciplinarian in the clubhouse and not the favorite especially of upper-classmen.However, his teams did mostly respond as his winning percentage was very high for a long period of time.

Team(s): Pendleton Buckaroos

Stats: From-To: 1916-1940, 25 Years, 1003 G, 561 W, .559 WPct, 8 Playoffs, 4 Championships

Other options: None


Texas University Interscholastic League (TUIL): Joel Tuttle
Tuttle was a conventional manager with a strait-laced personality. He slightly prefered offense to defense and was balanced between pitching and hitting.

Team(s): The Woodlands Highlanders

Stats: From-To: 1900-1921, 22 Years, 882 G, 505 W, .573 WPct, 9 Playoffs, 5 Championships

Other options: R.J. Rollins had a very similar career and won two more championships, but his overall winning percentage was much lower in comparison to Tuttle's.


Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA): T.J. Hinkle
Hinkle was a conventional manager with a very controlling personality. This must have kept the kids in line because he had a consistent ability to win, especially toward the middle and end of his career.

Team(s): Ashwaubenon Jaguars

Stats: From-To: 1900-1929, 30 Years, 1203 G, 631 W, .525 WPct, 10 Playoffs, 5 Championships

Other options: None

The top overall prospect is an 18-year-old in the Astros International Complex. Augusto Carpio's scouting report reads as follows, "Carpio has the highest ceiling imaginable as an elite center fielder."

The top pitcher is last year's top draftee -- Dusty Maga. He is close to being a finished product and still has an elite ceiling.

The first draftee in 1983 was a starting pitcher out of Mississippi. Jordan Rogers was originally drafted by the Marlins out of an Illinois high school with the 6th overall pick in 1980 but did not sign. He is an extreme groundballer with a sinker, curveball, and changeup repertoire.

1983 MLB Playoffs

The Red Sox were dominant in the 70s and that run is continuing in the 80s. They have only missed the playoffs twice since 1964 - in 1967 and 1982. They now have four World Series wins in that span and five total in team history.

1983 Hall of Fame

Devan Quade, 1B

What a dream career for Quade. He was born in Tennessee, played high school baseball in Georgia, was drafted by Baltimore, and stayed with the franchise for 22 years. He finishes his career in the top-5 overall value of all batters and had virtually no weaknesses to his game with the exception of speed. He could hit for power and contact and was always one of the top first basemen with the glove. All of that was capped with a World Series ring.

Initial Acquisition: Drafted 24th overall in 1961 by the Orioles out of Hardaway

MLB Awards: 2 Tomas Reed MVP, 4 Youssef Raadouni GG, 7 AS, 4 Paul Vines SS, 1 WS

Career Stats: 11789 PA, 2701 H, 410 HR, 10 SB, .348 wOBA, 123 wRC+, 269.4 ZR, 85.5 WAR, 67.1 JAWS

Jonah Bartlett, 1B

Bartlett played above his potential for much of his career, putting up 4 MVP seasons and coming in 2nd or 3rd in another two. He was a dominant offensive force who could have racked up even bigger numbers had he not fought ligament injuries throughout his career. Despite that, he still ranks in the top-10 of hitters all-time. Nobody could match him at his absolute best -- he is one of three players in league history (Kendall Bradford, Brian Sanchez) to put up a 10+ WAR season. The Diamondbacks had their best run in team history on the strength of his contributions but he was never able to carry the team all the way into the World Series.

Initial Acquisition: Drafted 54th overall in 1967 by the Diamondbacks out of New Mexico State

MLB Awards: 4 Tomas Reed MVP, 1 ROY, 1 Youssef Raadouni GG, 7 AS, 8 Paul Vines SS

Career Stats: 8009 PA, 2201 H, 211 HR, 20 SB, .386 wOBA, 142 wRC+, 169.1 ZR, 74.5 WAR, 63.4 JAWS

Name:  ChuckAllisonHOF.PNG

Chuck Allison, 3B

Allison's career ranks favorably with any other third baseman in history. His WAR total is more than Alonso Carvajal but his JAWS total is slightly below both Carvajal's and Jody Davison's. Any way you look at it, he is one of the elite third basemen of all-time. When compared to all other third basemen, he ranks 1st in hits, third in doubles, 3rd in HR, and 14th in walks. His defense was always just about average, thanks to a great arm.

Initial Acquisition: Drafted 18th overall in 1959 by the Astros out of Teutopolis

MLB Awards: 4 AS, 3 Paul Vines SS, 1 WS

Career Stats: 10832 PA, 2558 H, 302 HR, 3 SB, .334 wOBA, 114 wRC+, -25.4 ZR, 59.6 WAR, 47 JAWS

Name:  VictorValenzuelaHOF.PNG

Victor Valenzuela, CF

Valenzuela was a top-15 CF all-time thanks to elite contact, speed, and defense. He ranks 6th out of all players born in this century in stolen bases and had a good amount of doubles, triples, and home runs to go with that. Half of his career was spent with the Athletics and the other half with the Reds, but his best seasons came with his original team and his value dropped quickly in his 30s.

Initial Acquisition: Signed in 1965 with the Athletics out of the Dominican Republic

MLB Awards: 1 Tomas Reed MVP, 5 AS, 3 Paul Vines SS

Career Stats: 8034 PA, 2094 H, 108 HR, 384 SB, .337 wOBA, 116 wRC+, 22.9 ZR, 54.1 WAR, 45.9 JAWS

Name:  AidanRiceHOF.PNG

Aidan Rice, 3B

Rice's overall contributions at the hot corner put him squarely in the top-5 all-time along with fellow inductee Allison. Rice had a higher peak but didn't play quite as long, finishing his last major league season at the age of 36. He was primarily focused on contact with below-average power and slightly above-average defense. He did have some proneness to injury, missing a few weeks here and there with hamstring problems and ligament strains.

Initial Acquisition: Drafted 14th overall in 1967 by the Yankees out of Nebraska

MLB Awards: 1 Tomas Reed MVP, 1 Youssef Raadouni GG, 4 AS, 2 Paul Vines SS

Career Stats: 8576 PA, 2337 H, 145 HR, 9 SB, .339 wOBA, 114 wRC+, 28.5 ZR, 55.1 WAR, 46.2 JAWS

1984 Top 100 Prospects

Augusto Carpio remains in the top spot. He is now on the Astros' Gulf Coast Rookie League team and still has an elite ceiling.

Tommy Butler moves in as the top pitching prospect. He will probably not get his changeup but does have a fastball, slider, and forkball ready to go.

1984 MLB Draft

Name:  MiguelDay.PNG

Size:  45.6 KB
Miguel Day was drafted first overall in 1984. He is an elite lefty starter out of college with a deadly changeup and cutter combination.

Name:  JaidonMohammed.PNG

The Brewers drafted the first high school player -- Jaidon Mohammed, who has a ridiculous ceiling in the starting rotation with stuff, movement, and control.

Khalid Jackson made it back to the draft, having not signed with the Orioles in 1981. He was originally drafted 4th overall and was just drafted 5th.
