    I like Henrich's -or someone's - suggestion that we do the sim last because it could influence voters if we do it first. My guess is that we'll have all the team inputs in a couple of days.

      Lineup vs. RHB AND LHB (I don't see any substitutions that would create better fielding + platoon advantages that the lineup I already have.)

      1. Nap Lajoie (2B)
      2. George Brett (1B)
      3. Joe DiMaggio (CF)
      4. Mike Trout (RF)
      5. Frank Robinson (LF)
      6. Reggie Jackson (DH)
      7. Luke Appling (SS)
      8. Eddie Matthews (3B
      9. Carlton Fisk (C)

      Starting Staff

      1. Roger Clemens
      2. Sandy Koufax
      3. Tom Seaver
      4. Ed Walsh
      5. Jim Palmer

      Bullpen

      1. Closer: Felix Hernandez
      2. Long man/injury sub - Tom Glavine
      3. Right-Specialist - Carlos Zambrano
      4. Left- Specialist - Fernando Valenzuela
      5. Set-Up - Orel Hershiser


      Bench:

      3B Greg Nettles
      2B Johnny Evers
      SS Gio Urshella
      C Brandon Inge (only will see playing-time if Fisk gets hurt. Very hurt.)
      OF Christian Yelich (pinch runner)
      OF Tony Oliva

      Three strengths:

      1. Starting staff is good and deep. I mean everyone can say the same - but I think my staff is in the upper-half here. I can't get Glavine, Hershiser, or King Felix in my starting 5 and that seems like a good problem to have,
      2. Very good all-around players in starting line-up. All rank in my top 70 PARCS-D players ever.
      3. Lots of handedness versatility in the staff and in the starting line-up. Won't be able to be taken advantage-of by specialists.

      Three weaknesses:

      1. I don't have the topiest of the top-end talent of some other people. Clemens ranks 7th, but I don't have any other players in my top 20-all-time (regardless of position). Nobody who could make a case for Mount Rushmore. Some people have 4 such guys. I think some teams are more top-heavy than mine, but the biggest names will ring louder in ears than depth. Cle
      2. I have too many people potentially playing too many innings out of their primary position (Brett, Urshella, Inge)
      3. Underwhelming offense on my bench.

        Mark Teixeira 1B

        John Olerud 1B
        Bobby Veach OF
        Ross Youngs OF (.303/.373 vs LHP)

        2. Major flexibilities for platooning.

        3. For all the lethal rotations I have a lethal top four in both lineups.

        Weaknesses:

        1. Defense at third base is weak with Chipper and I am starting him there against lefties and righties.

        2. Just like everyone I have an outstanding starting rotation but one of the weakest.

        3. No true closer/relief pitchers.

          It's kind of embarrassing that I'm posting the bare minimum, but I really didn't expect what's going on in my household this week.
          Put it in the books.

            Hey, don't worry about it. I think everyone here knows a lot about most of these players. Hope whatever it is gets straightened out.

              Exactly, I've got a feel for all but the worst two or three players on each team that shouldn't change my opinion of a match-up, be well...and I need to configure a lineup anyway

                Sounds like all of us are getting hit at the same time with craziness. No big deal. It will get done when it get's done.

                          Bench
                          Johnny Bench
                          Bob Elliott
                          Alejandro Oms
                          Richie Zisk

                          Strengths
                          Rotation - My top 3 each have a claim among the top 10 pitchers all time. All five are among the top 20ish. I have an excellent mish-mash of righty/lefty both in the rotation and the bullpen. Luque and Finley can go through the batting order once if a starter falters early and my three rotating closers can certainly fire the pellet in short bursts regularly. I don't need to waste top 100 starters pitching the 9th. For 3-4 batters, Uehara or Iglesias is every bit as good as someone with 3,000+ career IP. Both the staff and the relievers are largely K-artists, taking the ball out of play from the opposing lineup more than "average".

                          Lineup - Strong lineup, with Votto/Anson platooning at 1B and Yaz/Henderson in LF depending on the handedness of the opposing SP. Fox's weak bat is the only hole in the lineup and our bench has a very high floor - everyone at least 20% better than league average hitter. That's not starting material in an All-Time league, but it's certainly good for the bench.

                          Defense - Schmidt, A-Rod and Fox are among the best fielders at their respective IF positions. Playing CF Doby in right field is a defensive plus there. Bench can easily be brought in if someone's running game is giving us fits (not that Gibson wasn't a decent fielder himself).

                          Baserunning - Speaking of running the bases, how does Cobb and Henderson sound (not to mention Fox himself)? This is far from a team of lumbering sluggers (though we have those too).

                          Weaknesses

                          Park favors offense, but left-handers slightly more than right-handers in HR. Most of my sluggers are right-handed hitters. (OTOH, I've got excellent LH pitching to keep visitors from taking advantage, too.)

                          None of my bench-warmers are middle infielders.

                          Manager Frank Quilici had a brief just-under .500 career with the early 70s Twins; not a strong resume necessarily. Hoping this team is fairly "push button" for him.

                            Hippo Vaughn (L) - long relief as needed
                            Don Newcombe (R) - long relief as needed



                            By far, this is the greatest staff in this project. According to Bill James, all five of my starters are ranked in the top 15 pitchers of all time. According our BBF poll from last year, three of my starters are in the top 10, four in the top 13 and the fifth is 19th. According to this poll, the Inquisition is starting the 2nd, 4th, 10th, 14th and 19th best pitchers of all time. According to my personal rankings, all five are in my top 18 spots.



                            Cy Young is arguably the greatest pitcher of all time. Satchel Paige was the greatest Negro League pitcher of all time and *might* be the greatest pitcher of all time (with the proviso that Negro League stats are incomplete and there are other transitional issues). Greg Maddux almost assuredly is first or second amongst pitchers who debuted in the last 40 years. Carl Hubbell was a dominating left handed pitcher who threw the nasty screwball and dominated right handed hitters. For anyone who has a right hander against the King, your strategy failed, as he threw better against right handed hitters than lefties.

                            So we have three pitchers who have legitimate arguments for being the greatest of all time - Cy Young, whom the pitching award is named for and has all the records for wins, innings, complete games, etc. We have Satchel Paige, who might be the greatest if you believe the Negro Leagues played good ball. You have Greg Maddux if you believe there has been a step up in league quality over time. We have Bob Gibson, who might have been the most "clutch" big game pitcher in the last 100 years...see his post-season record. He'll definitely keep the hitters on their toes. Carl will eliminate any specialist right handed hitting, because they couldn't hit the screwball.

                            In the pen, we have one relief specialist, the Quiz, who in his lifetime only gave up 92 unintentional walks. You have to hit your way on against him then. Oops, another bad idea. You'll get one dinger against him every 72 PA. Good luck there. Or if there is a late inning situation where a strikeout is needed, I'll bring in the headhunter, DD, who wants to scare you before he strikes you out. Or if he comes in with runners on second and third, he'll just throw a fastball into your face to load up the bases.

                            Jimmy Key is a lefty specialist (and ain't too shabby versus RHH either). In his 2600 inning career, he gave up only 32 career homers to lefties. Imagine that in the modern era! Lefties feared him like Trick or Treaters fear their parents who pull all the best candy out of their pumpkins! Yes, lefties love hitting against a guy with a 0.332 slugging percentage against him...not.

                            Hippo Vaughn and Don Newcombe are both stars pitching in long relief, giving lefty and righty options. Great pitchers...but with this rotation and pen specialts, they can only the early guys from the pen in this lineup!



                            Milladrive's boyos are going to be eaten alive facing this amount of pitching. Sorry brother, but the likes of Brooks Robinson and Dwight Evans might not have every made the big leagues going against these guys every day!




                            Lineup to follow hopefully tomorrow but by Saturday. Got lots of text to write....some interesting stats to share!





                            Vs RHP

                            1. Frankie Frish 2B (S)
                            2. Indian Bob Johnson (R)
                            3. Henry Aaron, RF (R)
                            4. Jim Thome, 3B (L)
                            5. Manny Ramirez, DH (R)
                            6. Aloysius Szymanski, CF (R)
                            7. Dan Brouthers, 1B (L)
                            8. Gary Carter, C (RH)
                            9. Willie Wells, SS (R)


                            I do not think that people realize just how devastating Jim Thome was against RHP. His slugging percentage versus them is the sixth highest in history, behind Ruth, Williams, Gehrig, Bonds and .001 behind Johnny Mize. You will not believe this but his stats (excluding intentional walks) are almost identical to Barry Bonds. Don't believe me...look it up. Bonds does get another 0.030 bump when intentional walks are included, but that is more a function of managerial stupidity...either not walking Thome more or Bonds too much. Thome's relative slugging percentage to the league is matched by few in history, much greater than Aaron's or Mays'. It is greater than Musial's. Don't think that of Thome as crazy Toledo Inquisition's fetish guy, actually look at the numbers (Bonds has a 0.005 OBP, 0.016 SLP and .011 BA lead over Thome, while Thome was in the slightly tougher league). In effect, don't read "Jim Thome" in my number four hole, read "Barry Bonds", because they are virtually identical. Look into it more. Identical.

                            Brouthers is the greatest power hitter of 19th Century ball. He has a 171 OPS+ (Connor has a 153, Anson 142, Delahanty 152). He is providing huge power out of the 7 hole. Szymanski is one of the all time great clutch hitters, driving in the plethora of runners on base for him. For his career, he hit 0.350 with RISP. With two out and a man on third, he his 0.360 with a 0.600 SLP ( 524 BA/480 - a full season's worth of chances even, not 18/50 or weird small numbers). He was a monster! He's going to have a ton of runners on base for him. Ramirez is 17th all time in net adjusted batting runs, yet people were scoffing at me. 17th! Yeah, he is a roider, couldn't field to save anyone's life, and is a jerk, but that is not what this anaytic series is about. He's only DH'ing here! 17th! Henry Aaron is Henry Aaron, magnificent for 20 years. Indian Bob Johnson has a lifetime 0.393 OBP. His career low OPS+ is 125. That is correct, low! He never, never, never had a bad or okay or even hurt year. He played each and every year as an awesome regular. He is magnificent. He hit almost the same versus righties and lefties. Willie Wells had a 140 OPS+ in the Negro Leagues (6400+ documented PA), and he is hitting last! This team is going to score so many runs, I can't even imagine how many.

                            Defensively, this is a very good team also. At short, Willie Wells is fighting with Pop Lloyd as the greatest defensive SS in NeL history. Is there anyone who doesn't think that Gary Carter is in at least the top 5 all time when combining pitch calling, framing, blocking, throwing and managing a game? Heck, he barely took any games off. Frankie Frisch is one of the greatest defensive second basement who ever lived. Indian Bob Johnson was a very, very good defender...click on my signature to see how great. He threw out more runners per game than did Roberto Clemente. Don't believe me, check out the numbers yourself. Henry Aaron was good in RF, besides all the hitting!

                            The more I analyze the defensive ratings/game and the bunching effect of old time players stats vs. current stats (see Tris Speaker for examples), the more convinced of it that Aloysius Szymanski may have been the greatest defensive left fielder of all time, certainly in the top 5. Think about it...how many of hte other great defensive left players played so much center? Bonds? Henderson? Nope, Nope. When Lefty Grove could have set a record for consecutive wins, he lost 1-0 because Jim Moore couldn't catch the ball. He didn't get mad at Moore, he got mad at Szymanski (who had to go home to Milwaukee) because Szymanski would have been able to catch it. Who prevented Lou Gehrig from hitting five homers in one game? Szymanski, that is who. Stole the fifth one by a leaping grab over the fence. Yes, yes, he won't be *quite* as good in CF (because IBJ is so great not to play) but he played CF 36% of the time, including in 1935-1936 (age 33-34) when he had good numbers too.

                            Yes Thome is only providing C- defense at third, but when you have the spitting image of Barry Bonds at third base, you can live with C- in the field.


                            Vs LHP

                            1. Frankie Frish 2B (S)
                            2. Indian Bob Johnson (R)
                            3. Henry Aaron, RF (R)
                            4. Aloysius Szymanski, CF (R)
                            5. Manny Ramirez, DH (R)
                            6. Dan Brouthers, 1B (L)
                            7. Gary Carter, C (RH)
                            8. Darrell Evans, 3B (L)
                            9. Willie Wells, SS (R)


                            The big change is that Thome gets to enjoy a few off says on the bench, since he got tired of doing so much damage vs. all the righties! (Actually, Thome isn't so hot versus lefties...especially at this level). Darrell Evans takes his spot, as relative to league he hit much better versus lefties and he also played better defense too. Szymanski continues to be the destroyer of eternities, as he his 0.371 with a 0.629 SLP versus lefties.


                            For the bench, we've got both offense and defensive help at catcher. If Carter ever needs an off day or faces someone Max Carey would prefer him not to see, Jim O'Rourke (134+ OPS) can take his place at catcher and can do a good job. If we want an even better defensive catcher than O'Rourke, we have Chief Zimmer backing him up. O'Rourke (right handed hitter) could pinch hit for Evans as needed too, and can play back up OF.

                            Kenny Lofton provides leadoff and outfield backup, and will be a tremendous pinch hitter if needed. In case of a one-run lead after IBJ hits late, he would be put in IBJ's slot in the order, moving to center with Aloysius in LF then. Juan Uribe provides outstanding defensive backup at 2B, SS, 3B and can come in late defensive changes for Evans if needed. Thome would remain at third...would need his bat in extra innings if needed. Uribe may have been the best fat defensive player I've ever seen. Monte Irvin provides health and skill as an OF backup.



                            My opponent in the first round, Milladrive, has many of my favorite players of all time, but I do not feel his team is as good as mine. Mathewson and Ford are great, but Carlton is highly random and Scherzer is many many leagues away from the top 15 of all time.

                            Milladrive has a magnificent top 4 to his lineup but has two glaring holes in his batting order, Brooks Robinson and Dwight Evans. Both of these players are disasterously poor hitters at this level. Don't believe me, PLEASE review their stats, please. Look at Evans home and road splits and honestly think of the pitchers I am throwing. He is a failure compared to them, especially RHP on the road not at Fenway (which will in effect be this entire league). He is average compared to his league. Imagine how putrid he will be versus 5 of the best 15 pitchers who ever lived. With him hitting 5th, Gehrig will be pitched around constantly by my boyos. Brooks Robinson for his entire career was barely a league average hitter. For this level, another zero. Having two offensive zeroes is going to cost Milladrive's team dearly, plus Gehrig's abilities will not be put to their best use, with me chosing to pitch to Evans if it and the situation matter.

                            3 Strengths -

                            1. The best staff in this tournament.
                            2. The best offense top to bottom in this tournament, looking at 1-9.
                            3. Most of my players are good year in and year out, steady. No not expect random fluctuations. You know what you are going to get, greatness.

                            3 Weaknesses

                            1. Henry Aaron is the only top 10 position player on my team. If raters only look for top 10 players, I only have Aaron (although Thome is an easy top 10 hitter vs. RHP, but not everyone will believe me or check it for themselves). I believe this my greatest team weakness.
                            2. Although I do not have as many career fluctuations as some people (late or early career bad years such as Clemente early or Pujols late), Szymanski's last third of his career was wasted due to lack of effort. If one of those years was chosen for analysis, I'd be in trouble (as opposed to an average or first two-thirds year).
                            3. Perceived weakness defensively at 3B and CF, although I urge you to consider Szymanski in CF closely - he is much greater than people might believe if they haven't studied the situation closley.

                                Only excuse I have is that I was tired. I fixed it...thanks. Made one mistake and kept propagating it.

                                Sad thing is that I had done a perusal for spelling errors and caught the ones for modern players and not the golden age player like the King.
