S36 Hall of Fame analysis (by 69cubs)

  As we move into S36, the HoF voting is upon us.

  I took a look at the options for this season and see a season where no one stands out as a lock, but, there are several good candidates.
  Among them:
  • R.J. Nunez -  486 saves, 6 AS, 1 FOY & 1 WS 
  • Hector Riley - 440 saves, 2.84 ERA, 6 AS, 1 FOY
  • Ken Atkins - 241 wins, 6 AS, 1 CY, 1 GG
  • Kiko Simpson - 236 wins, 3085 K's, 3.70 ERA, 4 AS, 2 CY, 1 No-Hitter, 1 WS
  • Ramiro Canseco - 222 wins, 3.69 ERA, 3 AS
  • Tomas Gonzalez - 215 wins, 3109 K's, 3.50 ERA, 5 AS
  • Aaron Bailey - 730 SB, 1 GG, 1 AS
  • Albert Moraga - 745 SB, 4 AS, 1 SS, 4 GG
  • Don Hasegawa - 1499 Runs, .362 OBP, 2 AS, 1 SS, 2 WS, 1 cycle
  • Everth Rojas - 746 SB, 1 GG, 1 WS
  • Gabe Marshall - 3154 H's, 1497 R's, .302 BA, .386 OBA, 1 AS
  • Geronimo Martis - 557 HRs, 1478 RBIs. .358 OBP, 2 AS, 2 MVP, 3 SS
  • Hipolito Coronado - 508 HRs, 2 AS, 1 SS, 1 WS
  • Jerry Nolasco - 2611 H's 419 HRs, 1607 RBIs, 319 SBs, 5 AS, 3 SS, 2 GG, 1 WS
  • Michael Harper - 556 HRs, 1 AS, 2 SS

  I started to eliminate all I would not vote for, Nunez (many blown saves), Riley, not enough saves, Bailey, Moraga & Rojas all 3 with many SBs, but not much else. Harper, Coronado, Hasegawa, Canseco, Atkins all fell just a little short for me.

  Which left me with 5:
  • Kiko Simpson stood out among the pitchers with the no-hitter and 2 Cy Youngs, 236 wins and over 3000 strikeouts.
  • Gabe Marshall is the only batter with 3000 hits not in the Hall of Fame. Not just barely over 3000, but up to 3154. with that, he did bat over .300 (.358 On Base) and almost 1500 runs.
  • Geronimo Martis has the most HRs of all eligible (and 1478 RBI's) and is a 2 time MVP, 2 time all star and 3 time Silver Slugger. 
  • Jerry Nolasco looks to be the most balanced player of the group putting up very good numbers in several different categories (hits, HRs, RBIs & SBs) and garnering 5 all star games, 3 Silver Sluggers, 2 Gold Gloves and 1 World Series Ring.
  • Tomas Gonzalez had 216 wins, 3109 strikeouts, his ERA and WHIP numbers was the best of the group listed and he was a 5 time All Star.
These players have been eligible before (except Nolasco), but, with no other "Can't Miss" candidate, these players have an opportunity to get in this season.

Hector Arroyo (S32) VS. Sean Donovan (S7)

     As Hector Arroyo (Las Vegas High Rollers) just finished Season 32 with an incredible 20-0 record (interesting that Arroyo got the loss in the S32 All-Star game, but started the game at 41%), I was compelled to look at other seasons to find a pitcher who dominated a season as Arroyo has.
     I journeyed back to season 7 and the Louisville Wild Turkeys to find Sean Donovan.
     There were a few pitchers I looked at through the Mathewson history:

  • Giomar Diaz (S12) Charlotte Wolfpack
    • 21-1 W/L record, other stats were good, but not great
  • Del Alvarez (S14) Buffalo Blizzard
    • 61 saves, 1.25 ERA
  • Wolf Miller (S17) Los Angeles Canyoneros
    • 25 Wins (single season record)
  • Harry Regan (S21) Colorado Crush
    • 17-1 W/L record, several other stats were near record stats
     Back to Arroyo & Donovan, Donovan holds 5 single season pitching records from S7, while Arroyo will check in (this season) with the first perfect winning percentage in Mathewson history surpassing the aforementioned Giomar Diaz to take that record.
     Arroyo pitches for a current playoff team with a 98-64 record. Arroyo has won his first playoff start this season (team still alive in playoffs at this writing), with 9 K's in 7 IP.
     Donovan pitched S7 for a playoff team with a 86-76 record, losing in the 2nd round of the playoffs. In 2 playoff starts, was 1-0, 2.08 ERA, 0.77 WHIP, 16-1 K/BB ratio.
     NOTE: S7's average run total per team is a half run more per game than in S32.
     For their Careers, both great pitchers, Donovan finished at 194-79, 3.22 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 2215 K's in 2334 IP.
     Arroyo at age of 32 with possibly 6 more good seasons has the chance to go after the career win record, currently Arroyo is at 232-81, 2.69 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 2931 K's in 2703 IP. I am guessing Arroyo will end up at the top of many career pitching categories by the time he retires.
     Below are the side by side stats for each pitcher to compare yourself. Comment with your thoughts or suggestion on a pitcher who you feel needs to be mentioned in this conversation.
