        --A few easy choices here; LF Harsel and 1B Freeman from Richmond, SS Wagner from Jamestown, 2B Lajoie from Asylum and 3B Collins from Seattle. The other OF spots and DH have some tough competition. Nobody really stands out at C. Young and Mathewson look to be battllng for Old Hoss honors with Tannehill and Hahn looking pretty good to make the All Star ballot. The relievers are a pretty dreadfull bunch. We'd probably be better off electing a first and second team group of SP than any of these guys, but I suppose with a little digging there might be a couple worthy of note.

          What muddles things a bit is the fact that Nap Lajoie has played every game this year at Shortstop rather than 2nd

              --Well thats what I get for making assumptions . Looking at the fielding stats, Lajoie has not only played every game at SS, but he has been great at it - #1 in assists, put outs and FP. He pretty easily beats out Wagner for first teamer at SS IMO, although if Jamestown holds on to make the playoffs Wagner is a pretty good MVP candidate.

                        Catcher
                        Frank Chance - Detroit
                        6 home runs and 65 runs scored were solid nubers for a catcher this year. as were his 18 stolen bases and .410 obp. The fact that base stealers didn't run like crazy on him pushes him over the top.
                        Boileryard Clark - Asylum (with one 's')
                        Tops in RBI's for backstops and #3 in runs scored. His low average was the only thing holding him down.

                        First Base
                        Buck Freeman - Richmond
                        Easy pick here. His 23 homers were 10 more than the runner up at 1st base. Also the only one with over 100 runs and rbi's. Not a liability in the field either.
                        Harry Davis - Asylum (with one 's')
                        I went with the lofty 145 rbi's he posted for a team that didn't score a ton of runs. He led the league in that category by 11 rbi's.

                        Second Base
                        Tom Daly - Richmond
                        102 runs scored and 94 RBI's to go with 11 HR's. All good numbers, but it was his slightly better defensive numbers that set him over the top. A huge part of the run scoring machine in Richmond.
                        Claude Ritchey - Detroit
                        his .311 AVG and .389 OBP aced all second basemen, as did his .797 ops . . . he was somewhat of a liability with the glove - committing 34 errors.

                        Third Base
                        Jimmy Collins - Seattle
                        Easy pick here. I love guys who score 100 and knock in 100 and he did both 119 runs 126 RBI's. 13 HR's and a whopping 17 Triples to go with his league leading 54 doubles. Can't forget to mention the great glove at the hot corner too.
                        Lave Cross - Detroit
                        Tossup here in many respects between Cross ans Strang. Gave the edge to the guy who committed 13 less errors. 108 RBI's, 35 Doubles, and 15 Triples were pretty nice too.

                        Shortstop
                        Nap Lajoie - Asylum (With one 's')
                        George davis is sending hm hate-mail for not playing 2nd base this year. Lajoie had an incredible season for the Inmates - posting a .401 AVG and a .493 OBP with 112 runs scored and 110 rbi's. His range and glove at SS was awesome this year too. On the short list of MVP candidates this year.
                        Honus Wagner - Jamestown
                        .344 AVG with 41 2B, 17 3B, and 9 HR's 130 Rins and 104 RBI's .... oh yeah, he stole 82 bases too. The fact that he came in #2 at shortstop is completely because Ed hates Lew and played Lajoie at Short solely to prevent Wagner from top SS honors. Seriously though - Wagner showed why he was the #1 pick in the draft.

                        Left Field
                        Topsy Hartsel - Richmond
                        The numbers speak for themselves. .313 AVG .405 OBP, .512 SPC 21 Triples and 24 HR's to go with a whopping 160 Runs, 101 RBI's and 80 SB's. Truly an incredible season.
                        Ginger Beaumont - Laquey
                        Really tough choice here. Beaumont paced all Left fielders in RBI's with 124 and his 19 HR's were 2nd among LF candidates. A key reason the Sharks won the NL this year (Beside some guy named Young who we will discuss later)

                        Centerfield
                        Emmet Heidrick - Laquey
                        His .342 average paced all Centerfielders as did his 112 RBI's. Played a soid Centerfield for the division winning Sharks.
                        Danny Green - Jamestown
                        Edges out Chick Stahl because Green playes 20 more games, led alll centerfielders with 20 HR's and was the only one to knock in over 100 RBI's (107) and score over 100 runs (108). His glove was excellent too.

                        Right Field
                        Sam Crawford - Seattle
                        His relatively low batting average (.299) waas offset by the fact that Crawford had the best all around offensive numbers for all RF'ers. 19 triples and 14 HR's led at the position as did his 106 RBI's. No errors in the field helped too.
                        Fielder Jones - Laquey
                        his .421 OBP gave him the edge for the #2 spot here and his run and RBI totals were significant too. 107 BB's placed him 3rd in that category.

                        DH
                        Jesse Burkett - Richmond
                        His .347 batting average and .409 OBP were great - as were his 124 runs scored and 111 RBI's. Hands down the best true DH.
                        Ed Delahanty - Lighthouse Point
                        100 runs scored, 125 RBI's to go with his .325 AVG and .401 OBP makes him the best of the rest here. Easily the 2nd best true DH this season.


                        Starting Pitchers
                        Cy Young - Laquey
                        Imagine how many games he could have won had his team been on a 3 man rotation all season. His 35 wins were amazing and easily led the league. He also finished 2nd in ERA at 2.62, 2nd in innings pitched, and 5th in K's. One of a very few instances where I believe serious MVP consideration is in order.
                        Christy Matthewson - Cleveland
                        Imagine if the Spiders management had surrounded this guy with some talent. Led the league in era at 2.51 and in Strikeouts with 300. how hw managed 27 wins is beyond me. You can tell why the Spiders gave up a lot to trade up for this guy.
                        Jese Tannehill - Seattle
                        24 wins with only 9 losses puts him solidly in my #3 spot. a 3.06 era and only 44 walks in 311 innings.
                        Togie Pittinger - Laquey
                        tied for 2nd with 27 wins. Pitinger would have been the ace on many teams rosters this year. Being overshadowed by Cy Young is nothing to be ashamed of.
                        Jack Powell - Lighthouse Point
                        The ace of the Bums rotation had a lot to do with their run at the end of the season to capture the AL wildcard. 23 wins and a nifty 3.23 ERA.
                        Noodles Hahn - New Orleans
                        the 22 year old posted a fine 23-11 record with a 3.36 ERA to keep New Orleans out of the Draft Lottery.

                        Relievers
                        Nig Cuppy - Detroit
                        Saved 27 Games and posted a respectable 3.41 ERA while only allowing 11 inherited runners to score and only blew 5 save opportunities.
                        Bill Hart - Lighthouse Point
                        34 Saves is 34 Saves . . . Despite his 5.69 ERA.

                            (Note - I'm just going off the lists provided. I'm not checking actual playing time at various positions. I'm also only doing a cursory review of defense)

                            1B Buck Freeman, Socks Seybold
                            Freeman is an easy choice. Seybold edges out Dungan because he was a positive in stolen bases, instead of being abysmal.

                            2B Claude Ritchey, Tom Daly
                            Both are pretty close. I'll take the extra OB over the slugging.

                            SS Nap Lajoie, Honus Wagner
                            Two easy choices. Lajoie runs away with the #1 spot, and nobody is close to the Flying Dutchman at #2

                            3B Jimmy Collins, Sammy Strang
                            Collins is easy. Strang barely beats out Hartman, but definitely does so - he has a slight advantage in a couple categories, and doesn't have the disadvantage basically anywhere

                            Catcher Frank Chance, Mike Grady
                            Chance is a clear leader, but he wasn't dominant. I think I'll take Grady's extra defense over Schriver's OB

                            Left Field Topsy Hartsel, Fred Clarke
                            This one was basically a tie between these two

                            Right Field Zaza Harvey, Fielder Jones
                            This one was tough. In the end, I took Harvey's huge Slugging advantage over Jones' higher OB and better fielding. If this was value over the course of the season, Jones would easily win because of having almost double the playing time. But that doesn't matter too much in a single AS game.

                            Center field Chick Stahl, Emmet Heidrick
                            Stahl runs away with it, but Heidrick only edges out VanHaltren. His 40 points of Slugging is about tied with the 20 point edge VH has in OB, but Heidrick has a much better SB success rate.

                            DH Burkett, Delahanty
                            There are a few people who are more or less tied. Burkett's great SB percent gives him the edge.

                            Starting Pitchers - Cy Young, Christy Mathewson, Togie Pittinger, Jesse Tannehill, Joe Yeager
                            Young and Mathewson stand out as the clear 1-2 choices. After that, there are a bunch of very similar guys. A lot has been made about me leaning on Young, and as rmadachik mentioned, Pittinger would have been the ace on many teams. But Yeager was right in there with them. A bit less IP, but if I needed to go to someone for one game, I'd pick Yeager just as much as Pittinger.

                            Relievers Nig Cuppy, Roger Denzer
                            Cuppy is the clear best option. He was lights out. Denzer has some competition, but he wins out over Ed Murphy or Jerry Nops
