  • All Post-Season Team

    OK, so if you had to come up with a team using only post-season stats, who would be on it?

    I came up with this when perusing Steve Garvey's stats and finding over 55 games he went .338/.361/.550.

    Some Contenders:
    -Steve Garvey
    -Reggie Jackson
    -Sandy Koufax
    -Derek Jeter
    -Stan Coveleski
    -Babe Ruth (Pretty Much Definitely)
    -Mariano Rivera (Duh)

    I'm especially looking forward to your 5 man rotation

    Don't forget Carlos Beltran who has hit .363/.470/.782, 14 HR, 25 RBI, 39 R in 34 playoff games.

      Here are some HOFer candidates from the past 35 or so years:

      Albert Pujols
      Curt Schilling
      John Smoltz
      Orel Hershiser
      George Brett
      Reggie Jackson
      Paul Molitor

      Then there are the multiple big-moment guys:

      Kirk Gibson
      David Freese
      Kirby Puckett
      Edgar Renteria

      Then some "that guy?" candidates:

      David Eckstien
      Mark Lemke
      Cody Ross
      Orlando Hernandez

      Just rattling off some names...

        Never winning a championship may unfairly keep him off of many lists.

            With a .330/.439/.607 line in 321 PAs, Albert has to be a leading 1B candidate, right? Gehrig put up some crazy numbers, but in less than half of the PAs.

              I would say Christy Mathewson would be a good choice. his 5-5 record isn't great but he had a 0.97era 104 inings, 0.836 whip, 10 complete games and 4 shutouts.

                  Curt Schilling and John Smoltz atop the rotation for sure.

                    Mickey Mantle hit 18 post-season home runs, and he didn't have wild card, LDS, or LCS. He had the World Series, period.
                    They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

                      Bob Gibson must be in the discussion for a top of the rotation spot. In World Series play: 7-2, 1.89 ERA, 9 GS, 8 CG, 2 SHO, 0.889 WHIP. Those 7 WS wins were all consecutive CG victories during the '64, '67, and '68 series. Too bad it wasn't 8...

                        I'd nominate Duke Snider ahead of Mantle- he hit 11 WS homers in barely half Mantle's ABs- hit for higher average, more power, higher OPS, and fielded better. Mantle had several outstanding Series but a lso quite a few clunkers.
