Hello all, I'm starting a new dynasty today. It will be from the start of the Baseball until whenever. lol. But there will be 2 major difference's in my dynasty from the timeline of the beginning to wherever I end. There will be a Designated Hitter in BOTH leagues. Yes that's right, both leagues will have a DH. and 2nd one is that there will be a wild card spot for the playoffs. making ever game mean something, because in baseball we all know anything can happen. I hope you enjoy. My manager is Shawn Howard. He will start unemployed. Hope you enjoy.

January 1st, 1871:

 

Just a few day's ago I was just a kid in college studying Business and Economics. Today, I hit the open market for baseball teams all over the world. My father always had an interest in baseball so naturally I followed suit. I played baseball my whole life. I was also great in my studies that I was able to get fast tracked to College. I played until I wrecked my leg so bad they almost had to amputate it. That's when my life changed. I knew I couldn't play anymore but that didnt stop me from gaining my degree and use it toward sports management. I was determined to make it to the big leagues one way or another. So here I am fresh out of a College as a 20 year old who really has no place to be in sports management especially at a high level. Nobody told the Chicago White Stockings that though as they proceeded to give me an interview for their GM and manager job. This new league opened up and they need to fill both positions. 

 

This new baseball league that is opening up is called Major League Baseball. It consists of 4 teams from the American League and 4 teams from the National League. The teams that play in the American League are the Baltimore Canaries, the Cleveland Forest Citys, the Philadelphia Athletics and the St. Louis Brown Stockings. The 4 teams that belong in the National League are the Boston Red Stockings, the Brooklyn Atlantics, the Chicago White Stockings and the Cincinnati Reds. All teams will play 30 games in Year 1 with only 2 weeks of spring training as I see it as a waste of time for me and players mostly just get hurt in Spring Training. The top 2 teams of each League will play a 7 game series to determine a League winner. The League winners will then face off in the finals or World Series to determine the Major League Baseball League Winner.

 

I guess I did pretty well in the interview since the Chicago White Stockings offered me a job. Here I am off to Chicago to start my incredible baseball journey. The job also offers $0 dollars for 4 years, but hey, It's better than working in the minors. This was the only Major League team offering me a job. So i took it.

January 1st, 1871

 

Without much downtime from getting hired to the inaugural draft, I must say, being a GM is harder than I thought. From the time I was hired I was already looking threw numerous reports on the inaugural draft. The Chicago White Stockings were slated to pick 5th overall out of 8 teams. This will be a snake draft so being in the middle is the worst place in my opinion. 115 player reports were on my desk the moment I got in there so I went to work. Oh yea the staff that prepared this need a lot of kudos. Let's meet my staff by the way: 

 

Bench Coach: Joey Evans

 

Joey Evans was the man who made all the reports happen. I will be forever grateful of this man setting up so much for the new manager/GM who is 13 years younger than him. He only has 3 years experience and has a contract that expires this year. As much as I am grateful of his reports I will see how this year goes as he is bad at teaching defense and base-stealing. 

 

Hitting Coach: Jack Holman

 

Jack Holman is a 37 year old hitting coach out of Blue Grass, Iowa. He only has 2 years of experience and preaches contact hitting. Like Joey though, he was 1 year left on his contract and I will take the wait and see approach here. The assistant GM, pitching coach and team trainer spots are vacant so after the draft I will see who I might hire for these 3 positions. 

 

Let's not forget about the man who made all this happen. The Owner:

 

Angel Diaz

 

Angel Diaz is fron Venezuela decent. He is very patient so that bodes well for me but he seems like a penny pincher. That is all I can tell you for now, ill get back to you on the goals at a different date

Draft Order:

 

1 - AL ~ Cleveland Forest Citys

2 - AL ~ Baltimore Canaries 

3 - NL ~ Brooklyn Atlantics

4 - NL ~ Cincinnati Reds

5 - NL ~ Chicago White Stockings

6 - AL ~ St.Louis Brown Stockings

7 - AL ~ Philadelphia Athletics

8 - NL ~ Boston Red Stockings 

 

There are about 23 players of the 115 who have a potential of 5 stars. So by simple math each team will get about 3 players with 5 start potential. The only thing is that there are only 10 Starting Pitchers and 12 all together so the pickings will be slim there, Expect mostly pitchers in the beginning of the draft. 

 

without further adieu, here is the draft (1st round only then will just talk about my players):

 

1st Round, 1st Overall: Cleveland Forest Citys select Starting Pitcher George "Charmer" Zettlein:

 

George is a surprise 1st overall pick. He has potential for unbelievable control and great movement but his stuff is decent at best. His best pitches are as follows: Splitter, Fastball, Slider and Curveball. He throws between 89-91 MPH.

 

1st Round, 2nd Overall: Baltimore Canaries select Starting Pitcher Al Spalding:

 

Al was the 1st overall pick everyone was expecting. His control and movement are much like those of Mr. Zettlein but his stuff was better and his Splitter was better as well. He also throws 90-92 MPH. Very interesting top 2 picks.

 

1st Round, 3rd Overall: Brooklyn Atlantics select Second Baseman Ross Barnes:

 

The 1st position player off the boards is young 20 year old Ross Barnes. He is an excellent defender and should win a few gold glove awards and is also a great batter. He has makes great contact but has potential to do even more as a hitter. His gap power is off the charts but his home run power may never develop. He also is an excellent baserunner. Not bad for the first position player off the boards.

 

1st Round, 4th Overall: Cincinnati Reds select Starting Pitcher Asa "Count" Brainard:

 

Asa Brainard comes into the draft as one of the more older gentlemen. He is 29 and in his prime but only for a few more years. Despite his age the Reds select him in hopes of using and in his prime pitcher who is unlike those drafted ahead of him. He has great stuff but his movement and control are just a notch under Zettlein and Spalding. His Sinker is by far one of the best pitches in baseball. He also throws between 90-92 MPH. 

 

1st Round, 5th Overall: Chicago White Stockings select Starting Pitcher Cherokee Fisher:

 

With the SP group dwindling down I decided to take one of the last few 'better' pitchers. Cherokee is a bit on the older side at 26 but is young enough to improve even if it's by a little bit. He is mostly a 3 pitch player who uses a 90-92 MPH fast ball to good use. He also throws a ChangeUp and a Curveball. His control and movement are up there with the rest of the 1st round SP but his stuff lacks a little but, hopefully that improves.

 

1st Round, 6th Overall: St.Louis Brown Stockings select Shortstop George Wright:

 

The 2nd position player of the boards is SS George Wright. He is a plus defender and is a threat on the bases with blazing speed. He has some decent contact skills that should develop into great contact skills and has some great gap power and might hit the odd home run here and there.

 

1st Round, 7th Overall: Philadelphia Athletics select Starting Pitcher Bobby Mathews:

 

The 5th SP taken in the 1st round is Bobby Mathews. He has 3 pitches that he relies on. a 90-92 MPH Fastball to go along with a Curveball and a Screwball. He also has good movement and control and so far has the most stuff potential I've seen throughout the 1st round. 

 

1st Round, 8th Overall: Boston Red Stockings select Starting Pitcher Al "Uncle Al" Pratt:

 

Uncle Al Pratt is the last choice of the 1st round making it 6 SP gone. He has some good stuff and his movement and control are much like the others The only difference is he has a better cutter than fast ball. he also throws a slider and curveball. 

 

That concludes the 1st Round, tune in tomorrow to see how the rest of the Chicago White Stockings draft went.

2nd Round, 12th Overall: Chicago selects Third Baseman Cap "Pop" Anson

 

Cap Anson has potential to be one of the best home run hitters out of this draft. He also has good contact skills with potential for more. His baserunning is fine and will steal here and there. He is also pretty good defensively.

 

3rd Round, 21th Overall: Chicago selects Center Fielder Fred Treacey

 

Fred Treacey was selected to be my starting CF. He will complete the 1-2 punch in the lineup with Anson as he has hands down the best HR power in MLB in the upcoming season. His contact skills need work though. His baserunning is top notch and will steal a lot in the upcoming seasons. 

 

4th Round, 28th Overall: Chicago selects Relief Pitcher Frank Fleet

 

Frank Fleet was select to provide depth at the pitching position. He has some geat stuff and good movement with great control. His stamina is very low so expect 9th inning duties for him.

 

5th Round, 37th Overall: Chicago selects Left Field Tom York

 

Tom York is welcomed to Chicago as a another player with HR power with solid contact skills. The only down side is his base running as it isn't the greatest. On defense he leaves a bit to be desired but he should more than make it up with his bat. 

 

6th Round, 44th Overall: Chicago selects First Baseman Joe "Old Reliable" Start

 

Joe Start is a contact hitter who will occasionally go yard once or twice a season. He isn't the best runner on the bases bit it will do that job. His defence is top notch and should be in the running for a few Gold Gloves in his lifetime. 

 

7th Round, 53rd Overall: Chicago selects Right Fielder Gat Stires

 

My outfield is set with the drafting of Gat Stires. He brings some gap power which equals doubles and below average contact skills though. His HR power is up to par with the rest of the outfielders so, we should have a very potent lineup. He should be ok on defense as well. Not gold glove worthy but not a liability either.

 

8th Round, 60th Overall: Chicago selects Catcher Tom J Foley

 

Now to fill out my battery duo with the selection of a catcher. Tom Foley was the man I selected to be the catcher. His game calling and defence is just fine, but his hitting needs a bit more work as he has below average contact skills. He has excellent speed and will be a threat to steal whenever he gets on.

 

9th Round, 69th Overall: Chicago selects Shortstop Jimmy Hallinan

 

I selected the Irishman to be my new SS as he had the best potential contact rating and overall potential with 4 star potential. He has little contact skills as is but has the potential to be on of the few great hitting SS in the game. That is all of course on talk of his potential. He is a work in progress on defence so let's see if this gamble will pay off in the future.

 

10th Round, 76th Overall: Chicago selects Second Baseman Tommy Beals

 

With my last position to fill, I decided to take Beals. He can play 2B pretty well as well as be a backup OF if need be and play a little but of SS. His main position right now though is 2B. His contact skills are well below average but can improve to just below average. 

 

11th Round, 85th Overall: Chicago selects Center Fielder Joe Simmons

 

Joe Simmons will be my back up CF and could also possibly play 1B and RF if need be. Like most this low in the draft his contact skills need work if he wants to be a everyday player. 

 

12th Round, 92nd Overall: Chicago selects Second Baseman Frank Barrows

 

On second thought, Frank Barrows and Tommy Beals will battle it out for the starting 2B job. Frank has some ok contact skills but what pops out is his gap and HR power. It is very solid as well as his baserunning. He can also play LF and RF.

 

13th Round, 101st Overall: Third Baseman Warren White

 

Warren White will be my backup 3B but can also play 2B and SS as well. He is very good on defence and will be an ok hitter. We will see what happen in spring training.

 

14th Round, 107th Overall: Left Fielder Al Barker

 

At this point in the draft you shouldn't read to much into who you select as it is basically a crapshoot. I took 31 year old Al Barker to fill up the bench and hopefully provide leadership due to his advanced age.

 

Position Overview:

 

C - Tom J Foley 7th out of 8

1B - Joe Start 2nd out of 8

2B - Frank Barrows 8th out of 8

3B - Cap Anson 3rd out of 8

SS - Jimmy Hallinan 8th out of 8

LF - Tom York 5th out of 8

CF - Fred Treacey 2nd out of 8

RF - Gat Stires 3rd out of 8

SP - Cherokee Fisher T-1st out of 8

RP - Frank Fleet 1st out of 8

As I'm simming through the spring, I received some terrible news and Cherokee Fisher will be lost for 6 months with a Torn Rotator Cuff. So that sucks and is a reason why I hate Spring Training. 

 

So I acted quick. I traded RF Gat Stires to the Philadelphia Athletics for SP John "Lefty" McMullin. It was either McMullin or McBride from the St.Louis Brown Stockings and "Lefty" had better stuff and his pitches were more developed. Both teams wanted Cap Anson for their better pitches but I was having none of that. So i had to make the decision to give up Gat Stires.

 

Spring Standings:

 

AL:

 

1. St.Louis Brown Stockings - 9-3

2. Philadelphia Athletics - 8-4 ..... 1 GB

3. Cleveland Forest Citys - 4-8 .... 5 GB

NL:

 

1. Chicago White Stockings - 10-2

2. Brooklyn Atlantics - 7-5 ..... 3 GB

3. Cincinnati Reds - 4-8 ..... 6 GB

4. Boston Red Stockings - 3-9 ... 7 GB
