    Yes it is.

    I'm stumped on CF- I almost guessed Hack Wilson, but he wasn't BBWAA, was he?
    Hack Wilson was a VC pick.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and try Willie Mays for CF. '52 was a short season, and he stuck around past his prime, so maybe...
    Not Willie Mays, but you are in the right ballpark, and I kind of mean that literally as well...

    He played very few games, and was over his head in terms of the competitive situation. I didn't check, but I imagine 3 or 4 of his negative years were in the first 4- 5 years of his career, when he rarely played and had the benefit of little Minor League experience.
    Yes, you are right. Those years came at the beginning of his career when he was mostly a 3B, and some came at the end of his career when he was used more often as a DH.

    Evers was not a BBWAA choice.

    Incorrect. Remember, there are still 2 more secondbasemen to be accounted for as well.
