    Rebuilding the Detroit Tigers: 1975 and Beyond

    The Tigers won the World Series in 1968, the AL East in 1972; however by 1974 they had finished last in the AL East with just 72 wins. The real life Tigers would finish with just 57 wins in 1975 and not be serious contenders again until 1983. This will be my attempt to rebuild a ball club that was terrible in real life. As I lost my other dynasty I will look to love this one as I loved my previous team. I will be playing in Mogul mode, play by playing each day. Already I have noticed the bug where most rookies are listed in their 2nd season.

    Re: Rebuilding the Detroit Tigers: 1975 and Beyond

    1975 Season Preview

    Prediction
    Mogul: 69-93 Power Rank: 24

    Boston, New York, and Baltimore look to be the class of the AL East. Cleveland looks to be middle of the pack, while we look to fight the Brewers to stay out of the basement. The race for the #1 pick in the 1976 draft might be between us and Montreal.

    Lineup

    1. SS Gary Sutherland- Our highest contact player, played in 149 games last year and hit .254.

    2. 2B John Knox- Hit .307 in 55 games last year.

    3. RF Leon Roberts- Hit .270 in just 17 games last year. Has some pop in his bat.

    4. DH Willie Horton- At 32 age is starting to catch up, will be asked to carry the offense with his 83 contact, 82 power ratings.

    5. LF Ben Oglivie- Hit .270 in 92 games last year, hopefully can provide some consistent offense.

    6. C John Wockenfuss- Only 13 games of big league experience, however has some promising offensive and defensive skills.

    7. 1B Nate Colbert- Not much contact but when he does hit it, he can hit it out of the park.

    8. 3B Aurelio Rodriquez- Not that good but can use the glove to play solid defense.

    9. CF Ron LeFlore- The speedster in center hit .260 in 59 games last year.

    Bench

    C Gene Lamont- Not that good but allows some of our younger guys to develop in the minors.

    1B Bill Freehan- Will probably play quite a bit can hit with some power.

    SS Tom Veryzer- Not much to say, he is young with some MLB experience, hopefully he gets better.

    CF Mickey Stanley- Another solid veteran off the bench.

    Rotation

    1. Vern Ruhle- 85 control, has started 3 games in his career but looks like he could be a good one posting a 2.73 ERA.

    2. Mickey Lolich- Has been at it a long time, 195 career wins.

    3. Joe Coleman- Another vetran, was 14-12 last season.

    4. Lerrin LaGrow- 8-19 a year ago, probably won't be much better this year.

    Bullpen

    Closer John Hiller- 13 saves last year and a 2.64 ERA, 38 saves two years ago.
    Setup Tom Walker- A solid reliever in Montreal the last 3 seasons.
    Short Relief Ike Brookens- A rookie with decent control.
    Short Relief Dave Tobik- A younger rookie, with better control.
    Middle Relief Sheldon Burnside- An even younger rookie with decent control.
    Middle Relief Ray Bare- Has some big league experience and pretty solid control.
    Long Relief Bill Laxton- Not very good at all but has experience.
    Mop Up Dave Lemanczyk- Again not very good but has some experience.

    April 11, 1975 Mickey Lolich fires a complete game gem and picks up his 197th career win. Following the game we learn Aurelio Rodriguez will miss 22 days, he is sent to the DL and 22 year old Dan Meyer is called up from AA.

    Re: Rebuilding the Detroit Tigers: 1975 and Beyond

    April 30th-May 2nd, 1975

    (8-17) @ (9-15)

    April 30, 1975 Mickey Lolich crafts a complete game victory in game 1.
    Code:
                         1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 +  R  H  E
            Tigers (DET) 0 0 2 0 0 1 3 0 0    6 11  1
           Orioles (BAL) 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 2 0    4 13  0
    Starters: Mickey Lolich vs. Ross Grimsley
    WP: Mickey Lolich (3-4, 3.54) - 9.0 IP, 13 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 136 pitches
    LP: Ross Grimsley (3-3, 3.31) - 6.0 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 5 BB, 2 K, 107 pitches
    HR: Nate Colbert (8), Lee May (4)
    Stars: Leon Roberts (4-5, 2 R), John Wockenfuss (3-5, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K), Mark Belanger (3-4, 1 R, 1 RBI)

    May 1, 1975 4 first inning runs were plenty for Jim Palmer as he strikes out 16.
    Code:
                         1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 +  R  H  E
            Tigers (DET) 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 2    3  9  1
           Orioles (BAL) 4 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 x    5  7  1
    Starters: Joe Coleman vs. Jim Palmer
    WP: Jim Palmer (3-4, 3.12) - 9.0 IP, 9 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 16 K, 145 pitches

    Stars: Ken Singleton (1-3, 1 R, 3 RBI, 1 BB)

    May 2, 1975 An ealry 5 run lead isn't enough as the Orioles come from behind to take the series. Following the game we learn Willie Horton will miss 14 days, Jack Pierce is called up from AA to take his roster spot, Nate Colbert will move to clean up and DH and Bill Freehan will play 1B.
