This was part of the "Sim Series" at MLB.com. I have no idea why the 99 D-Rays are there! This should be a rrrrreal close series! :rolleyes:


1927 New York Yankees [1]
(110-44, WS Champs)
Starting Pitchers
1. Waite Hoyt 22-7, 2.63
2. Urban Shocker 18-6, 2.84
3. Herb Pennock 19-8, 3.00

Notable Players
Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Tony Lazzeri, Waite Hoyt

1999 Tampa Bay Devil Rays [16]
(69-93)
Starting Pitchers
1. Bobby Witt 7-15, 5.84
2. Wilson Alvarez 9-9, 4.22
3. Rolando Arrojo 7-12, 5.18

Notable Players
Fred McGriff, Jose Canseco, Wade Boggs, Roberto Hernandez


To say the least, the D-Rays have their work cut out for them. The Yankees, winners of 110 games, feature the "Murderers' Row" of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Earle Combs, Tony Lazzeri and Bob Meusel -- perhaps the most dangerous string of hitters of all time. Ruth swatted 60 home runs, the first to do so. Waite Hoyt and Urban Shocker lead the rotation.
The Rays are led by Fred McGriff, Jose Canseco and Wade Boggs, who stroked his 3,000th hit during the '99 season.

Yankees have the better team, but I see that "Crime Dog" is there. Who knows?

This game is a laugher. The 1927 Yankees in the remodled Yankee Stadium :lol:

Combs, Ruth and Meusel would be rolling in the outfield looking at how close the walls are !! :lol:

Let's try a prediction...hmmmm

Yankees 12-0

Ruth, Gehrig, Lazzeri, Meusel will hit home runs...

Personally I would have gone with Ben Paschal as my DH. In 82 at bats he had a .549 slugging % and batted .317 that season. That is why he is my DH in my sim season...

Ditto. Poor Ben Paschall probably would've put up a fairly respectable career if he weren't blocked by three of the greatest outfielders of all time and the reserve clause (not to mention pitchers who hit.;))

Well, the Yanks swept the series, 13-0 and 13-6. Ruth & Gehrig hit back-to-back homers in the first inning of the first game! Nobody beats Murderers' Row!
And the '34 Cards beat the '01 D-Backs also.
Here are the matchups for the Yankee teams left in the tournament:
'98 Yanks vs. '90 A's
'51 Yanks vs. '55 Dodgers
'01 Yanks vs. '70 Orioles
'37 Yanks vs. '93 Blue Jays
'27 Yanks vs. '62 Giants

It's going to be the '98 Yanks vs. the '27 Yanks eventually. The 27 Yanks will probably win because they would peg all our players who lean over the plate! Nobody hung over the plate then like they do now, unless they were trying to get killed.
