Currently the DYNASTY League Baseball
simulation game has a selection of Cardinal teams from the 50’s,
60’s, 80’s, 90’s and 00’s and Yankee teams from the 50’s,
70’s, 90’s and 00’s. DYNASTY League Baseball will be expanding to include
many more seasons and teams.
The Actual batting breakdowns vs. LH and
RH are included. Each season uses the league averages and matching ball
park effects to normalize for cross-era performance.
The franchise All-Stars were selected on a combination of their
being a true franchise player for that team and a peak season from those
available was selected. Jim
Edmonds, Matt Morris and Edgar Renteria are projected to be franchise
Cardinals into the current decade so they were included despite a short
tenure with the Cardinals.
The decision of which Ozzie Smith season
to select may have very well sealed the fate of the series in game 7.
Currently, 1982, 1993, 1994 and 1996 Ozzie Smith seasons are available.
Ozzie ‘93 was selected over Ozzie’s ‘82 season because of a higher
BA and SLG, but still very good basestealing, baserunning, excellent
range and very good fielding percentage (Error rating).
While Ozzie Smith displayed excellent range and very good fielding percentage in 1993, the 1982 season saw him reach a Range Factor of 5.86 (total chances/G) that not only lead the league, but was the greatest defensive range performance in the history of baseball. Ozzie’s 1982 fielding pct. of .984 lead the league that year, earning him a 90 Error rating on a scale of 100. Not having Ozzie’s ’82 90 Error rating in place of Ozzie’s ’93 Error rating of 70 became one of the most crucial plays of Game 7 and the series.

After Game 1 was rained out by heavy
thunderstorms on October 6 in New York, the series began in 80 degree
weather during the afternoon with occasional drizzle and wind blowing
right to left at 10-19 mph. Bob Gibson and Ron Guidry dueled to a 2-2
deadlock into the 8th with Guidry getting out of numerous
jams. Thurman Munson’s solo HR to left field in the bottom of the 8th
inning broke a 2-2 tie to give the Yankees the lead. Mariano Rivera came
on to pitch a perfect 9th to earn the save. The Cardinals
out-hit the Yankees 10-3, but struggled to deliver clutch hits.
Game 2 StL at NY Old Yankee Stadium 1937-1973 October 8 Day game Rained out thru 4 innings
Cardinals jumped all over starter Whitey Ford with Mark McGwire and Ken
Boyer hitting back to back HR to propel the Cardinals to a 5-2 lead
going into the 5th inning. Joaquin Andujar started for the
Redbirds giving up 2 runs on 4 hits. A torrential downpour came down to
start the 5th canceling the game and erasing what may very
well have been a Cardinal victory.
Game 2 StL at NY Old Yankee Stadium 1937-1973 October 9 Day game
rain out from yesterday caused both pitching rotations to be juggled.
Steve Carlton and David Cone matched up in the re-scheduled Game 2.
The Cardinals struck first in the 2nd with
back-to-back HR by McGwire and Edmonds vs. Cone to give the Cardinals a
2-0 lead. The lead was short-lived as the Yankees stormed back vs. Steve
Carlton with a 2 out 2-run
HR from Yogi Berra followed by a 3 run third to knock Carlton out of the
game. The Yanks never looked back building a 8-2 lead as Mickey Mantle
went 2-4 with 2 RBI.
Game 3 NY at StL Sportsmans Park 1956-1965 October 11 Day game
Turley and Bob Gibson matched each other in a pitching duel for the
first 4 innings. In the bottom of the 5th, Turley lost his
control walking the first two batters. Lou Brock delivered a two-run
single and Ozzie Smith followed with a two-run triple for 4 runs in the
5th. That was
all the runs the Cardinals would need as Bob Gibson held the Yankees to
6 hits for a 8-1 Cardinal victory in Sportsmans Park. Mickey Mantle hit
his 2nd HR of the series for the Yankees only run.
Game 4 NY at StL Busch Stadium 1977-1991 October 12 Night game
Mantle got the Yankees back on track with a 1st inning
two-run HR off Joaquin Andujar. Andujar settled down the rest of the way
yielding to lefty Joe Hoerner in the 8th. Willie McGee and
Julian Javier provided RBI singles to tie the game in the 5th.
It was not until the bottom of the 13th that Curt
Flood would become the Cardinal hero with a two out RBI single off Bobby
Shantz to give the Cardinals a 3-2 victory. Dennis Eckersley who pitched
1 inning of scoreless relief earned the win while Bruce Sutter pitched 3
innings of shutout relief to help hold the Yankees scoreless since the 1st
inning. Whitey Ford, Sparky Lyle, Bob Grim and Bobby Shantz held the
Cardinals to only 5 hits over 13 innings.
Game 5 NY at StL Busch Stadium 1996-Present October 13 Night game
Mattingly’s clutch two-run HR off Joe Hoerner with two-out in the top
of the 7th gave the Yankees a 2-1 lead that they would not
relinquish. Graig Nettles followed with a solo shot giving the Yankees
back-to-back HR with two out. Mariano Rivera came on to record his 2nd
save by getting pinch-hitter Mark McGwire for the last out of the game
with McGwire representing the tieing run at the plate. Starters Bob
Forsch and David Cone both pitched well with Cone earning his 2nd
win of the series giving the Yankees a 3-2 lead in the series.
Game 6 StL
at NY Yankee Stadium 1976-Present
October 15 Night game
Game 7 StL at NY Yankee Stadium 1976-Present October 16 Night game
had to be on the Cardinals’ side.
Back in ’26 and ’64 they were in a 3-3 World Series deadlock
against these very same Yankees and came out the victor.
Their expectations were high.
But since their 1982 World Series comeback win against the
Brewers, the Cardinals have suffered more heartache than victory.
And on this day in Yankee Stadium, it was heartache that won out
for the Cardinals. Leading
5-2 in the 9th inning with ‘70’s relief ace Bruce Sutter
on the mound, the Cardinals could taste victory.
Not even a lead-off home run by Graig Nettles dampened the
Cardinals spirits, but something was brewing.
A harmless fly ball to cf secured the first out, but then a shot
down to third base handcuffed Boyer for a two-base error (Boyer had a
interesting defensive rating in 1957.
He had an “A+” range rating (Truly great performance ranking
with best of all-time, but a sub-par fielding percentage with a ‘15’
error rating). A ground
single to center scored the runner from second to make it a 5-3.
Then gold-glover Keith Hernandez made a diving stop on a shot
drilled down the first base line to get the second out, with the runner
advancing to second. And
then the play that will live in infamy. A routine game-ending, ground ball by Don Mattingly, scooted
under the glove of Ozzie Smith, scoring the runner from second to make
it 5-4 and bring the winning run to home plate.
Bruce Sutter faced Bernie Williams with two-outs and the game and
hearts of the Cardinal fans on the line.
Williams launched one deep over the wall in straight away center
for a 2-out, 2-run, walk-off Homerun.
was a tie in the voting for series MVP between David Cone 2-0 1.62 ERA
and Mark McGwire BA .412, SLG 1.000, OBP .545 with 3 HR and 9 RBI to
lead all batters.
