  • Anything Goes Roster Game

    I will give a theme for a 20-man roster. After providing two players, the next person must provide three players who follow the theme until it is complete. Copy and paste the roster in your post, bolding the three players you contribute. Only rule (besides following the themes): you can't contribute in consecutive posts. I'll start with an easier one I've done before:

    Global Internationals (players must have a country or nationality in their name or one of their nicknames)

    1B-
    2B-
    3B-
    SS- Honus Wagner (The Flying Dutchman)
    LF-
    CF-

    DH-

    This team might not be half bad.
    "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”

      Could add a HOFer in Turkey Stearnes as well as a 5th starter in Juan Roman Pizarro.

        And another OF with Alex Israel Rios. Why not toss Derek Holland on the staff, with Al Holland and Bill Holland Caudill both in the pen!

                    Garvey, Lopes, Russell, and Cey started 833 times and the Dodgers went 498-335, for a .598 winning percentage. That’s equal to a team going 97-65 over a season. On those occasions when at least one of them missed his start, the Dodgers were 306-267-1, which is a .534 clip. That works out to a team going 87-75. So having all four of them added 10 wins to the Dodgers per year.
