Rob Picciolo------652 775 333 (442)-----[ss-4 e25/2b-4 e8]--[use mixed card for MIL]-{DC}

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Simmons was a switch hitter, so there is no "R" (reverse) designation. In game simulation, switch hitters must always hit from the opposite side the pitcher throws with. Rare exceptions could potentially be conjured up, but they must be documented to have occurred in real life and made hitter-pitcher specific for adjustments in game simulation.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Howell had 25 PA vs. left (.435/.458/.609)--card splits watered down. S-O-M left/right value about even. (Small sample lefty hitter adjustment).

Money had a better OBP versus righties. But his card splits were doctored to favor the left side for OBP. This was done by S-O-M for the purpose of encouraging gamers to play lighter hitting lefty batter Roy Howell at DH against righties--for realistic usage. S-O-M further promoted this by making Howell clutch favorable upon reissue, though Money was also clutch favorable.

Edwards had one triple in 18 PA vs. left--triples splits watered down. (Small sample adjustment by S-O-M).

Brouhard had BA and OBP splits watered down by S-O-M. Still dominant in slugging average versus lefties for S-O-M card. His 452 OPS differential was reduced to about 250--rough guess--by S-O-M.

Yost had card splits watered down. His 306 R OPS differential reduced to roughly 100 R by S-O-M.

Picciolo's mixed card (OAK/MIL stats) watered down so that his left/right card splits are close in value rather than highly favorable versus left. Picciolo had 76 PA's overall, about 65 percent with Oakland. Started 5 games at short and 2 at second for Brewers. Was originally carded with Brewers.

Molitor is only Brewer rated A for bunting

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

When the 1982 baseball cards were reissued by S-O-M in 2016, the Brewers were the only team that did not receive any cards added to their original issue. Among all the modern, full season reissues within the past two decades, I'm guessing they are the only team with no players added from the original issue.

The 1982 Brewers are part of the recently released 1980s/1990s "Diamond Gems" card sets by S-O-M. 16 teams in all, so far. They are the only team from those sets that was a reissued duplicate from a previously reissued set.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

LHB Terry Crowley had 5 PA vs. lefties (250./400/.250). Low sample doctored card on left side. Valuable last resort when Orioles platoon options have been exhausted, which can happen with this platoon heavy roster. Deep bullpens on opposing teams can exploit this team, especially when using certain starters as openers. "Back to the Future" analytics. For an itemized account of 1982 Crowley card, see the thread "1982 Johnny Grubb & Lefty Sample Sizes" in Baseball 2 section.

Floyd "Honey Bear" Rayford--like Crowley--was carded only upon reissue. Rayford gives the Birds emergency depth at catcher and third base. Rayford was just 3 for 35 (.086) versus righties. But two were homers. An .086 BA is well below the Dean-Tolleson Line, so his homerun value vs. righties combined with his extremely low BA could not be accurately represented within the "50/50" S-O-M card dynamic. So S-O-M shifted one of those two homers to his other side, where Rayford hit .222/.364/.389 with one homerun in 22 PA in real life.

Rayford played just three innings at catcher, but 15 games--12 starts at third. He may start there occasionally against platoon southpaws in sim games.

The doctored Rayford card is a loose representation of Rayford's 1982 OPS differential. He's a decent pinch hitter/platoon option versus southpaws.

It's handy that his overall splits are similar to noncarded Brewers hitter Larry Hisle, allowing Milwaukee to use the 1982 Rayford card as a sub for Hisle, with option to use PDR for walks and/or homeruns if one is that particular.

1982 Rayford: .132/.220/.302
1982 Hisle----: .129/.250/.323

Tony Perez---------769 864 558 (306)-----[DH/1b-4 e30]
Julio Valdez-------550 222 818 (596)--R--[ss-4 e22]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Subcarded low sample

Ed Jurak-------708 111 1000 (889)--R--[3b-2 e47/cf-5(+3) e16]

Jurak played in 12 games at third base, starting five of them. He had 24 plate appearances, going 7 for 21 (.333, all singles) with seven RBI (clutch favorable?), two walks and a sac fly. Simple way would be to use PHC #5. A PDR method if one is particular.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Part-time hitters with reverse splits sometimes had their split values doctored by S-O-M to satisfy normalized platoon setups. Reid Nichols of the Red Sox is a subtle example. We discussed the Brewers' altered card splits.

S-O-M wanted its gamers to be accurate with player usage, so they often tailored certain cards to incentivize that.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Julio "Exxon" Valdez spilled five hits in 20 at bats. 23 plate appearances. He was originally carded by S-O-M, which provided the Red Sox with an emergency shortstop after Hoffman gets pinch hit for or Stapleton needs to move to another position. Or whatever. But pitcher Bob Ojeda was not originally carded despite pitching in 22 games--14 starts--and 352 plate appearances against.

Gumby Gedman and Muggsy Allenson formed catcher platoon which will follow the same catcher regulation as teams such as the Yankees (Cerone/Wynegar) and Orioles (Dempsey/Nolan), where the righty hitters played more than the lefties. Cerone, Dempsey, and Allenson will start against all lefties (RL,PL), and reverse righties (RR). This compromise will satisfy both the game manager and game regulator.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Solitaire platoon regulation (starts)

Lansford------3/4---(PL,RR,PR)--3b
Boggs---------3/4---(RL,RR,PR)--3b for RL, 1b vs. right
Nichols-------3/4---(RL,PL,RR)--cf
Miller--------1/4---(PR)-cf
Yastrzemski---1/4---(PR) DH
Gedman--------1/4---(PR)-c
Allenson------3/4---(RL,PL,RR)-c
Perez---------2/4---(RL,PL)-DH
Stapleton-----1/4---(RR)-1b

Regulation based on Pitcher Balance Numbers designations. A rough guide that's not necessarily applied in all cases.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Light hitting Hoffman will start a lot of games but may not complete many of them.

Stapleton won't start many games but will appear in most.

Remy is an atypical #5 hitter, but he's there because he's clutch favorable (#5 is best spot for that) and an "A" bunter who can steal bases--both factors keep Rice and Yastrzemski away from the double play ball.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bunt ratings downgrades from original issue:

Nichols-----A to C
Valdez------A to B
Miller------B to C
Boggs-------B to C
Lansford----C to D

Remy kept his A rating

Joe Charboneau-------679 657 728 (071)--R--[rf/lf-4(+1) e12]

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Mixed player

Larry Milbourne uses 1982 Jim Gantner's composite hitting card vs. RHP and 1982 Bobby Brown's composite hitting card vs. LHP

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

[CR]

Carded only upon reissue

Bake McBride
Rodney Craig
Joe Charboneau

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Injury replacement only (not carded)--low sample

Karl Pagel--------567 333 635 (302)-----[PH/1b-4 e30]
Kevin Rhomberg---900 857 1000 (143)--R--[lf-3(-1) e25]

Recommend walk PDR for Pagel (7/25 vs. Right 2/6 vs. left) 25 PA/Zero starts. PHC #1 vs. left. Convert gb's to strikeouts. (333-333) pre-adjusted walk PDR

Use Charboneau hitting card vs. right [.214]. Convert XBH to singles--W/W power--percentage roll--(263-158) walk PDR

Recommend subcard without splits for Rhomberg (.333/.400/.500). Possibly 1982 Al Oliver

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Doctored cards

Bill Nahorodny had splits adjusted. Homerun and double values watered down to either satisfy 50/50 dynamic, normalize values, or influence his usage. Changed from originally issued card.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Significant error rating changes from original card

Toby Harrah was originally rated 4 e41 at second base and 4 e48 at shortstop. The second base error rating of 8 in reissue is surprising considering he played there for just 27 opponent plate appearances. He played shortstop for 17 opponent plate appearances.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Bunt rating downgrades from original issue:

Fischlin---------A to B
Manning----------C to D

Harrah, Dybzinski, & Perconte kept their A ratings.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Very low sample roster cuts

None.
