2051 Kentucky MVP
« Reply #1 on: March 30, 2013, 09:48:06 AM »
2051 was a season of rebuilding where we traded away the veteran core of the team. For the season we went 67-96. Our team statistical rankings were:

Hitting
AVG: .253 (4th in FFL)
OBP: .326 (3rd in FFL)
SLG: .373 (7th in FFL)
OPS: .699 (6th in FFL)
RUNS: 702 (5th in FFL)
HITS : 1401 (4th in FFL)
XBH:: 433 (6th in FFL)
HR: 107 (T-8th in FFL)
BB: 555 (7th in FFL)
SO: 1076 (10th in FFL)
SB: 93 (5th in FFL)

Pitching
ERA: 4.78 (12th in FFL)
S-ERA: 5.05 (12th in FFL)
B-ERA: 4.34 (10th in FFL)
RA: 836 (12th in FFL)
HA: 1574 (12th in FFL)
OAVG: .280 (12th in FFL)
BABIP: .313 (12th in FFL)
HRA: 129 (7th in FFL)
BB: 603 (8th in FFL)
SO: 886 (12th in FFL)

We by far had the worse starting pitching in the league. Our offense really wasn't the problem even after trading away Kent Walters and Alan Rodgers and Aurelio De Jesus to name a few. With that said the 2051 MVP is really between 29 year old rookie OF Hitch Adams and 23 rookie SP Javier Mediaville.

We're going to go with Hitch Adams as the Kentucky Colonels 2051 team MVP.

Hitch Adams benefited much from trading away our entire outfield of 2050.
AVG: .326
OBP: .380
SLG: .506
OPS: .886
HITS: 154
2B: 44
HR: 13
RBI: 76
R: 68

He led the team in average, hits, doubles, RBIs and runs scored, OBP, SLG and OPS. He very nearly won the FFL batting title finishing third behind Virginia's Stone Nichols and Juan Garcia who hit .327.

Javier Mediaville numbers don't look that great at 10-16 4.00 214 IP 130 K's but that was good enough for the team pitching triple crown. He was the only pitcher on the team to reach double figures in wins, his ERA is a full 1.05 better then our team starters ERA (which includes his 4.00) so its probably more like 1.40 better than the rest of the staff. He through 200+ innings as a rookie (214). He threw back to back shutouts at one point mid-season. That may not sound like that much of achievement but the franchise only had 12 all-time complete game shutouts before that. He was the one pitcher we had that in his games I always felt we had a chance. Just wanted to give him some kudos for being a rookie in a tough situation and still performing for me.

2052 Generals MVP
« Reply #2 on: June 14, 2013, 05:35:51 AM »
This year its a pretty easy decision in outfielder Lawrence Farrell. He led the team in hits (163) homers (30) RBIs (93) total bases (290) Avg (.277) SLG (.492) and OPS (.835) and was 2nd in steals with 16.

Javier Mediaville finishes a distant 2nd leading the pitching staff with 14 wins, a 3.66 ERA and a team high 146 K's.

This year we actually had a tough decision. As a team we improved from 64-98 to 80-82 and had a number of players have solid seasons. Here is a short list of Generals who had notable seasons.

bold denotes team high
LF Kevin Henson .306/.407/.517 for a .924 OPS, 42 doubles, 7 triples, 13 HR, 76 Runs, 65 RBI 47.0 VORP 5.3 WAR
2B Eric "Even" Stevens .291/.344/.474 for a .818 OPS, 170 hits, 34 doubles, 5 triples, 21 HR, 76 Runs, 79 RBI 41.7 VORP 4.5 WAR
1b/3B/OF Lorenzo Rosa .310/.358/.405 for a .763 OPS 205 hits, 45 doubles, 6 triples 92 Runs, 54 RBI 58 SB, 37.4 VORP, 2.7 WAR
OF Lawrence Farrell .297/361/.527 for a .888 OPS 28 HR 73 Runs 87 RBI 39.7 VORP 2.3 WAR.
SP Javier Mediaville 13-12 3.34 ERA 3 CG 1 SHO 223.1 IP 200 H 14 HR 58 BB 154 SO 1.16 WHIP .241 OAVG 121 ERA+ 39.9 VORP 5.3 WAR

Our best overall hitter was Kevin Henson I believe but he missed 5 weeks of playing time with injuries. Our best slugger, Lawrence Farrell also missed 5 weeks of playing time on the DL. If they would have been healthy one of those two players probably would have gotten this honor. In a literal sense, Kevin Henson was our most valuable player but I believe a most valuable player award of any kind should go to players for what they did on the field. Not necessarily to the best player.

So that pretty much leaves it between Lorenzo Rosa, Eric Stevens, and P Javier Mediaville. To me, all three could make very strong cases.

Eric Stevens was rock solid all season both at the plate and in the field. He made 159 starts at 2B notching 818 total chances, including 98 double plays, while committing only 7 errors (.991 %). At the plate he finished 2nd on the team in hits, runs, RBIs, and 3rd in doubles and homers.

Lorenzo Rosa had his best season at the plate while making 105 starts at first, 43 at 3B (a position he just learned last season) and 8 starts in right. His 205 hits not only led the team but were tied for the most in the entire NPBL. His .310 average had him finishing 3rd in the FF for the batting crown and his 58 steals led the FF and were 2nd most in the NBPL this season. His production and flexibility in the field were definite reasons for our improvement as a team this season.

Javier Mediaville remains the most dependable pitcher we have in the rotation. On a team with a ERA 4.38 ERA he posted a 3.34. On a team that had only 2 guys pitch more than 162 innings, he threw 223.1. On this team, Javier Mediaville's value is huge.

This year I'm going to give the award to Javier Mediaville. All these guys had seasons that were crucial for our improved success but the offense was better throughout the lineup so those guys had help. Javier didn't have much help, especially the first 3 or 4 months of the season. I won't say he had the best season of this group, but I will give him the nod for the most valuable on this team.

2055 Georgia General MVP

This year we have a number of nominees to look at.

SP Javier Mediaville 21-5 3.10 ERA
CL Hector Gallegos 51 Saves (in 53 chances) 1.06 ERA 0.95 WHIP
1B/3B  Lorenzo Rosa .303 AVG 208 H 114 R 49 2B 49 SB
LF Kevin Henson .319/.402/.562 .964 OPS 123 R 118 RBI +18.5 ZR 1.115 D.EFF
RF/1B Lawrence Farrell .322/.395/.587 .982 OPS 118 R 116 RBI

Javier Mediaville led the league in wins (21), winning%(.808) and finished 2nd in innings (232.1). Javier was consistent all year long. The closest thing he had to a bad month was in May when he went 4-0 with 3.98 ERA The other months he was between 2.50 and 3.20. As always, he was the anchor #1 starter for this team. Javier is the first pitcher in franchise history to become a 20-game winner.

Hector Gallegos was pretty much automatic all year long. His 51 saves were 2nd in the league and easily a franchise record. If he hadn't slumped and posted a season worst 1.74 ERA for the month of September he would have posted a sub-1.00 ERA. Only blew 2 saves all year. On a side note...I believe he only blew one save last season after he came over from Michigan. If that is right he is like 68 of 71 on his saves opportunities. Hector was a huge reason why we posted a FF best 2.84 bullpen ERA. He is the first pitcher in franchise history to reach 50 saves in a season. He also was 2-0 4 SVs 0.00 ERA in 13 innings in the playoffs.

Lorenzo Rosa led the league in hits for the 2nd straight season with a career high 208 (he had 205 in 2054). He also led the league in doubles with 49 and finished 3rd in steals with 49 (snapped his streak of 50 SB seasons at 3 though). His 114 runs scored finished 3rd on the team (but 4th in the league lol).

Kevin Henson, at the age of 24, showed signs of becoming a star. He got off to a slow start in April (.252 4 HR) but after that he was one of the best hitters in the league. August was his best month where his OPS was near 1.200 when he hit .424/.525/.667. He was 3rd in Avg (.319), 5th in hits (185), 4th in total bases (326), t-2nd in RBI (118), 2nd in runs (121) 4th in extra bases (74), 5th in slugging (.562) 3rd in runs created (137.17) and RC/27 (8.84), 4th in OPS (.964), 4th in VORP (70.3) and 2nd in WAR (8.9).

Lawrence Farrell had a great year and a monster first half of the season. In the first 3 months he was hitting .335 25 homers. The last three months he still hit for a solid average of .311 his power was down to just 14 homers. During this time his ratings were getting shredded but since he was still having a great season so  I left him in there. In the post season he struggled going just 6 for 43 with 0 homers and 15 K's. With all that said..he still finished with a great season where he finished 2nd in hits (194), 2nd in total bases (354), 4th in homers (39), 3rd in RBIs (116), 3rd in runs (118), 3rd in extra bases (77), 2nd in AVG (.322) 2nd in SLG (.587), 2nd in RC (141.26), 2nd in RC/27 (8.97), 2nd in OPS (.982), 3rd in VORP (75.8), 4th in WAR (7.8). He also led the league in hit by pitches with 19 (36 times in the last 2 seasons) and still played in 162 games (159 starts).

While I felt Rosa, Mediaville and Gallegos were all worth mentioning for their great contributions to the team...lets be honest....this is a two horse race between Henson and Farrell.

Farrell I feel had the better year but as he started tailing off power wise (and more importantly rating wise), I felt we started struggling a lot more once that happened. In September his ratings fell to 5/6/5 from 7/7/5. When that happen our wins and losses as a team started to be effected:

Record in April          18-5, .783 PCT
Record in May          19-9, .679 PCT
Record in June          21-6, .778 PCT
Record in July          15-11, .577 PCT
Record in August     23-5, .821 PCT
Record in Sept         13-14, .481 PCT
Record in October      1-2, .333 PCT

Due to that...I think Farrell was the more valuable player in the 1st half and Henson was more valuable in the 2nd half. I think I'm going to go with Henson because even during Farrell's first half...its not like Henson was that far behind. Toward the end of the season and into the playoff I was struggling just to keep Farrell in the lineup. It was a situation of his season stats say I should play him but his ratings say he was my 4th or 5th OFer at best. As it is...I'm not sure he's going to make the opening day roster next season.

2056 Georgia Generals MVP

Here our this year's crop of nominees:

Kevin Henson LF .273/.379/.509/.888 28 HR 88 RBI
Javier Mediavilla SP 15-9 3.31 ERA 33 GS 231.0 IP 1.16 WHIP

Really that is pretty much it. We had a lot of injuries this year so for individual numbers we don't look as sexy as we did last year even though we won the NPBL title. We pretty much platooned at every position at some point with the exception of 2B.

I'll give Javier Mediaville the nod because he was healthy all year long while Henson missed a little more than a month. Also Henson was 10 for 59 with only 1 HR in the post season while Mediaville made 6 starts going 3-0 with a 1.41 ERA in 44.2 innings.

2057 Georgia Generals MVP

While we made the playoffs for the 4th straight season, it felt like a very frustrating campaign. We, like a lot of teams, fought to stay healthy and couldn't get any kind of sustained momentum going. In terms of who was our most valuable players, it felt like Kevin Henson or Corey Miller. When either one of them were hurt and out of the lineup we had months where went 11-14, 11-16 and 12-16. When they both were in the lineup we had months of 16-12, 16-10 and 17-11. Kevin Henson misssed about 20 games with Miller being more like 30. Losing Randy Baldwin and Nobuyori Nishida for about a month at different times didn't help either. We had hoped bringing back Kent Walter would help us but that was very much a failure. In 160 ABs Walter struck out 50 times while only managing 30 hits and 0 homers batting a pitiful .188. In comparison, starting pitchers Javier Mediaville and Tom Chandler combined for 33 hits in 125 (.264), striking out 37 times.

I like to reserve the team MVP not for a players talent but for a player's season. Having just 2 players be able to record 500 AB's (Lorenzo Rosa - 572 and Kevin Henson - 513) doesn't give me a lot to choose from. Rosa is only valuable when he is getting on base at about a .350 clip. Since he doesn't walk, a .278 season isn't going to cut it and was actually costing him playing time. Kevin Henson was having a decent season leading the club with 28 homers and 86 RBIs batting .296/.396/.552 with a OPS of .948. From the hitters side he really is the only option.

Normally Javier Mediaville would be an easy choice to nominate but his 90 walks were a problem all year. Not sure what happened to him since his ratings didn't change. Tom Chandler regressed and actually almost went to the bullpen toward the seasons end. The only pitcher who stuck out to me as a bright spot was closer Hector Gallegos. Gallegos saves were down to 37, his lowest as a full-time Generals closer, but this may have been his best season ever. He went 8-3 with 37 saves (40 chances) with a 1.04 ERA and a 0.81 WHIP while the league batted just .172 against him. Definitely one of the reasons we finished with the #1 pen ERA in the FF.

So do I go with a left fielder who was having a very solid season but got hurt down the stretch or do I go with a specialist like Gallegos who never faltered for us. Can't believe I'm doing this...but I'm going with Gallegos.

2057 Generals MVP is CL Hector Gallegos.

The 2058 Nominees are:

CF Jerry Baker - .319/369/.465 .834 OPS 101 R 194 H 18 HR 92 RBI 31 SB

Baker came over from Ohio/Nova Scotia and took over the role of Randy Baldwin as our starting CF. He ended up becoming our #3 hitter. He played in 160 games leading the team in runs, hits, and steals. He also improved his defense from average to good for CF.

LF Kevin Henson - .315/.403/.553 .956 OPS 97 R 162 H 27 HR 103 RBI 10 SB

Another solid season for Henson as he led the team in homers, RBIs, OBP, SLG, OPS. When healthy, Henson is one our best and most consistent players.

SP Pat McCullough - 20-7 3.24 1.30 WHIP 211 IP 206 H 9 HR 69 BB 114 SO

Pat became just the 2nd 20 game winner in franchise history. He tied Ramon Costa (MD) for the most wins in the NPBL this season. With the team struggling in the first half of the season (44-44), Pat was one of the few bright spots going 11-4 2.95 in the first half.

Offensively we were one of the best team's in the league. In the FF we led in team AVG (.283), SLG (.431), OPS (.780) Runs (807), Hits (1588) fewest K's (768). Pitching wise we were in the middle to bottom half of the FF in every category except K's which we were 2nd (996). Offensively our production was spread out through out the lineup as we didn't have anyone with eye popping numbers but had solid numbers throughout the lineup. Pitching wise we struggled and were terribly inconsistent...with the exception of Pat McCullough. He didn't have great numbers, his WHIP is mediocre his BB/SO ratio is less then 2 to 1...but without the year he had we probably would not have made the playoffs.

2058 Pat McCullough
Georgia 2051-62: 1032-903 (.533) - 4 Division Titles
Reg. Season 3105-2612 (.543) - 13 Division Titles 2 GMoY

Maryland Career:  2073 -1709 (.548) - 9 Division Titles

2059 was a nice year for us as we win our 3rd FF South Division title in 5 years. While the pitching staff had the biggest bounce back year shaving 0.75 runs off our team ERA from 2058 to 2059. With that said we didn't really have many standout seasons from the pitchers.

CL Hector Gallegos - 4-2 1.14 ERA 46 out 48 saves 0.87 WHIP

Hector seems to have the syndrome of having great seasons every other year with mediocre seasons in between. His ERAs since coming over from Michigan have been 1.06 ('55), 3.44(
56'), 1.04 (57'), 4.06(58'), 1.14(59'). Needless to say, Hector's great year had a lot to do with staff having such a solid season. He also was the 2059 FF Deangelo Ramos Award winner.

CF Jerry Baker - .339/.373/.557 .931 OPS 104 R 218 H 33 HR 107 RBI 36 SB 7.1 WAR

Jerry had his best season to date setting career highs in runs, hits, triples, homers, RBIs, and steals. Jerry won the FF batting title, had a 30/30 season, and was voted the 2059 FF Tyson Bacon Award.

LF Kevin Henson - .310/.387/.546 .933 OPS 91 R 162 H 28 HR 108 RBI 11 SB 5.4 WAR
 
Kevin started off slow in the first couple of months of the 2059 season but ended up one of the hottest hitters in the FF down the stretch. Kevin finished 2nd in the voting for the 2059 FF Tyson Bacon Award.

SS Bobby Crosby - .313/.391/.378 .768 OPS 87 R 198 H 4 HR 47 RBI 11 SB 5.5 WAR

Bobby had a consistent all around year. He set careers highs in hits, runs, walks and steals. He also the FF Zachary Matthews award for SS. This give him a gold glove at both third base and shortstop.

1B/C Corey Miller - .307/.400/.502 .902 OPS 93 R 156 H 24 RBI 92 RBI 1 SB 4.8 WAR

Corey was one of three starting Generals that had a OPS of more than .900 OPS. Corey set career highs for runs, hits, homers, RBIs, average, on base percentage, slugging and OPS.

We had a lot of guys with solid seasons and Kevin Henson's late season surge actually made this a harder than I thought it would but I have to go with Jerry Baker. He was just too solid all year long to not give it to him.
