    1903 All Star Thread

    Teams should vote for a starting team from their respective League. One starter per position, and one second place vote. Pitchers will be voted on as top 5 starters and 2 relievers. Top vote getters per position will be starters, and the top 5 remaining vote getters will be reserves. Top 3 starting pitchers and top 2 relievers will make the team. The all-star break will be after the this sim so start working on your ballots.

    Catcher
    John Warner, Anaheim - Great offensive numbers barely balances out his inability to throw our baserunners.
    Pat Moran, Kalamazoo - Great arm behind the plate gives him the edge over Kling

    First Base
    Jake Beckley, Kalamazoo -Very Good season for the Kumquat first bagger as usual
    Fred Tenney, New Orleans - Jus a step below Beckley. Edges out Anderson

    Second Base
    Kid Gleason, Kalamazoo - Very good offensive numbers and no slouch with the glove
    Wid Conroy, Laquey - One of the few bright spots on this Sharks squad

    Third Base
    Harry Steinfeldt, Kalamazoo - Early MVP candidate. Had a huge 1st half
    Jimmy Collins, Seattle - Solid all around season and a great glove at the hot corner.

    Shortstop
    Honus Wagner, Kalamazoo - Another early MVP candidate. Worth the price they paid for him so far
    Joe Tinker, Cleveland - Flashy glove at short along with a solid if unspectacular bat is a sign of things to come.

    Left Field
    Sam Crawford, Seattle - Had one of the greatest months ever in May. Easy choice here
    Ginger Beaumont, Laquey - Tough choice here but his outfield play (11 assists) won him this spot

    Center Field
    Cy Seymour, Kalamazoo - Heads and ttails above the other centerfielders in the AL this year.
    Fielder Jones, Laquey - Decent offensive numbers but a great glove gives him my #2 spot

    Right Field
    Mike Donlin, Kalamazoo - Another incredible offensive season for a Kumquat player
    Ducky Holmes, Anaheim - Another reason the Angels have improved vastly this season

    DH
    Jimmy Sebring, Seattle - Deserves a spot on this team as a starter rather than a backup so here he is
    Joe Kelley, New Orleand - Fine offensive numbers for the Barons

    Starting Pitcher
    Christy Mathewson, Cleveland - Leads league in wins, Strikeouts, ERA, and innings
    George Mullin, Kalamazoo -Leader in wins, and winning percentage while 2nd in era
    Clark Griffith, Seattle - Leader in wins and 2nd in winning percentage. 3rd in era
    Doc White, Kalamazoo - leader in wins and 2nd in winning percentage
    Ed Seaver, Seattle - !2 wins against only 4 losses

    Relief Pitchers
    Jock Menefee, Seattle - 26 saves and a 2.04era
    Bill Phillips, Kalamazoo - 20 saves and a 1.46era

    Well, I didn't read the instructions well enough. Had the whole team done using both leagues, then went back and redid it. The NL looks a lot stronger this year.... Ballot identical to Dan's for the position players, but I don't think Dan likes the Express pitchers very much....

    Catcher
    1. Charlie Dexter, Pioneers – Best of a pretty weak group in the AL behind the plate.
    2. Lou Criger, Bums – Second best of a very weak position for the AL.

    First Base
    1. Frank Chance, Tigers – Stands head and shoulders above the other first basemen in the AL.
    2. Charlie Hickman, Rams – Best of the rest. That’s not saying a lot.

    Second Base
    1. Nap Lajoie, Inmates – Huge drop off from last year, but still the best in the AL at this position.
    2. Danny Murphy, Rams

    Third Base
    1. Harry Wolverton, Express – Clearly the best third baseman for the AL so far this season.
    2. Bill Bradley, Pioneers – A true coin flip between Bradley and Strang. I went with Bradley; anyone taking Strang would get no argument from me.

    Shortstop
    1. Bill Dahlen, Tigers – No contest. Courtney close in batting but Dahlen is clearly the better fielder and has played a lot more.
    2. Ernie Courtney, Express – Too bad he’s out for the season with an injury (usage). With 121 point edge in OPS over the next man, and a better glove, I still went with him.

    Left Field
    1. Jimmy Sheckard, Express – Went with him due to more playing time and better range than either Hartsel or Clarke. Also leads all LFers in runs and stolen bases. Yeah, also a homer vote.
    2. Topsy Hartsel, Rams – Barely edges out Clarke.

    Center Field
    1. Jimmy Barrett, Bums – Having a fine season at the Point.
    2. Roy Thomas, Inmates – Nice year for him as well.

    Right Field
    1. Jesse Burkett, Rams – A no brainer pick. 200 points in OPS over the next best man leaves no room for argument.
    2. Ollie Pickering, Bums – Second best, but a loooong way behind Burkett with the bat.

    Designated Hitter
    1. Fred Clarke, Tigers – Makes up for leaving off of the left field picks. Deserves a spot.
    2. Sam Metes, Bums – Edges out Bresnahan for the final spot on my ballot.

    Starting Pitchers
    1. Bill Donovan, Inmates – Leads the AL in wins and ERA, second in WHIP, fourth in IP. Easy pick.
    2. Jake Weimer, Express – Rookie hurler is keeping the Express in the AL race.
    3. Cy Young, Tigers – Keeps rolling along. Another fine season on the hill.
    4. Red Donahue, Express – Having a better than expected year, and I’m very grateful.
    5. Chappie McFarland, Inmates

    Relievers
    1. Ed Poole, Bums
    2. Ed Doheny, Pioneers

    I wonder if there will ever be a team again that manages to take every starting infield position on the All Star team. Well done, Jack. BTW, I had Moran as my starting catcher when I made out the ballot using both leagues.

    I wonder if maybe it's not worth it to have the ASG in future seasons. I know for me, in 1901 I enjoyed it, but now I don't really care.

    The NL came back from a 4-1 defecit when Joe Tinker tripled home 2 runs in the 7th and came home for the winning run to give the NL a 5-4 win and earn MVP honors.

    Sorry to see that the Express's Jake Weimer gave up the four run rally. I hope he got it out of his system in the all star game though.
