1979 National League C + D Replay
Permalink  
 


       Originally, I wasn't going to start another long project, but as it's fun for me, and everyone here is so nice, with no pressure or time limits set, I figured, why not? So from my vintage Strat cards, I will roll the 1979 National League season.

       Here's a brief synopsis of my rules. I will play some Advanced rules (lefty-righty, errors, POW for pitchers, etc,), but no real Super Advanced, such as weather, ballpark effects, and so on. The backs of these cards don't have all the stuff of the reprinted sets, as you know. Each team has just 20 players, so I will use a 4 man rotation, set from 1-4 by most inn pitched on card. The regulars will be set by most at bats, however, I will platoon, and move guys in and out, as I see fit.

       Once again, I will use the Retrosheet calendar for '79, and whatever teams played on a particular date will play. That of course, ignores rainouts and other cancellations. Also, not all teams will have the same number of games played at season's end. I will post the game scores and a brief rundown at the end of each "playing day", but in reality, it may be a while between posts in real time. I will post the standings at the end of each Sunday of "playing time".

       Give me a day or two to get my notebooks ready, and my pencils sharpened, and join me for the April 4th, 1979 traditional opener, between San Francisco and Cincinnati. And thanks again, for having me.

Not too often we get a chance to see an old-school, 20-player-per-team replay (no Additionals, huh?).

That's going to be tough, with the short benches and eight-man staffs.

Anyone here ever do a season replay with the old, Basic-only, pre-Additional Players, sets?

 The season opener is in the books and will be posted soon. As Seajaw astutely pointed out, it is going to be a real challenge with only 20 man rosters. I am going to make some concessions. As far as injuries go, max length for injury will be 5 games, and no team will have more than one injured player at the same time.(injury rolls after the first will be ignored, until the first guy returns.)  For pitcher POW's,  especially relievers, I am going to let them get their full # of inns in, before the "dot" potentionally comes into effect. For ex: If pitchers POW is 1, I'm letting him pitch one full inning without the dot being a factor. It would come into effect the next inn, assuming 3 hits, and or walks.

April 4th, 1979

EVANS, IVIE EACH HOMER TWICE TO SPOIL CINCY'S SEASON OPENER

         San Francisco      0   0   0   0   0   6   1   0   1     8   11   1

         Cincinnati         1   0   3   0   1   0   0   1   0     6   13   1

            Cincinnati's Tom Seaver looked to be cruising towards an opening day win, pitching 5 innings of shutout ball, with a comfortable, 5-0 lead, but in one inning, the wheels came off. The Giants posted 6 runs in the sixth, five of them off Seaver, and one off Tom Hume, as San Francisco came back to win, 8-6.

            Ken Griffey and Joe Morgan hit back to back doubles off Vida Blue to give Cincinnati the early lead, then in the bottom of the third, George Foster belted a 3 run homerun. The Red added a run in the fifth, and Seaver and the Reds looked poised for an easy win.

            However, in the top of the sixth, Mike Ivie led off with a homerun. Seaver retired the next two batters, but then allowed a hit, a walk and another single, to load the bases. Bill North stroked a two run single, to make the score Reds 5, S.F. 3. Seaver was pulled for Hume, who quickly surrendered the second long ball of the inning, this time to Darrell Evans. He then retired Jack Clark, to end the inning.

            Ivie would lead off the seventh, and would homer again, for the second straight at bat. Then in the top of the ninth, Evans also went deep for the second time, hitting a solo shot off Doug Bair.

             The Chicago Cubs, and the Los Angeles Dodgers will host their season openers tomorrow.

     WP-Minton(1-0)   LP-Hume(0-1)         HR- S.F.: Evans 2(2), Ivie 2(2)

                                               Cinn: Foster (1)

And their off, what a game to start the replay with Seaver being lit up for 5 runs and blowing a 5 run lead.

April 5th, 1979

SWAN GOES DISTANCE AS METS ROLL PAST CUBS

        New York      2   0   1   0   0   2   2   2   0     9   14   1

        Chicago       0   0   1   1   0   0   0   0   0     2   10   1

                    The Mets kicked off their season with an easy win, rolling over the Chicago Cubs, 9-2, at Wrigley Field. Craig Swan earned the complete game win. He gave up a run in the third, when Ivan Dejesus singled in Steve Dillard, and also gave up Dave Kingman's first homer of the season, a solo shot in the fourth.

                    New York had several multiple hit players, starting with Steve Henderson, who had 3 hits, including a triple. Lee Mazilli, Doug Flynn, Joel Flynn and Frank Taveras all had two hits apiece.

     WP-Swan(1-0)   LP-Reuschel(0-1)                        HR-Chic: Kingman(1)

SUTCLIFFE SETS BAR HIGH WITH ONE HIT SHUTOUT IN DODGER'S OPENER

        San Diego      0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0     0   1   1

        Los Angeles    3   0   0   1   2   0   0   0   x     6  11   0

                The 1979 season is in its infancy, but L.A.'s Rick Sutcliffe has already pitched one of the best games of the season, tossing a one hit shutout against the San Diego Padres. Sutcliffe gave up a single to Ozzie Smith to start the game, and allowed not one from that point on. He did walk 3 batters, but none of those got further than first base. Sutcliffe struck out 3, and after walking Fernando Gonzalez in the fourth, retired the last 15 batters he faced.

                Dusty Baker led the Dodgers offense, with a 3 hit, 3 rbi day, Davey Lopes had 2 hits, a stolen base and scored twice, and Steve Yeager hit his first homerun of the year.

        WP-Sutcliffe(1-0)   LP-Jones(0-1)                    HR- L.A.: Yeager(1)

Banny, you sure are rolling through these replays!

Let's hope you can guide the Buccos to their real-life fate in '79.
