    All right, with Camp I can buy that as a tie-breaker. He certainly is one of the more underrated pitchers in Braves history during that time. Most people only remember him for that home run against the Mets in 1985.

    In regards to the position choices, I simply went with where everyone had the most games. Duffy and Berger played the most in center and I didn't want to have three center fielders.

    Here's mine, you won't see too much disagreement:

    C: Joe Torre, Del Crandall
    1B: Fred Tenney, Joe Adcock
    2B: Bobby Lowe, Glenn Hubbard
    3B: Chipper Jones, Eddie Mathews
    SS: Herman Long, Johnny Logan
    LF: Ron Gant, Rico Carty
    CF: Andruw Jones, Dale Murphy
    RF: Hank Aaron

    Duffy's most games were in center field which is why I didn't put him on the list since Jones and Murphy were better. Carty, I think, was one of the best pure hitters the Braves ever had despite losing two years.

    SP: Warren Spahn, Greg Maddux, Phil Niekro, Kid Nichols, Tom Glavine
    RA: John Smoltz, Craig Kimbrel, Gene Garber, Mike Remlinger, Steve Bedrosian

    Gene, I think, was more important than Camp was.
    Nice team Sam. I looked at Carty but went with Duffy because I felt he played enough games in left compared to center that he would be a defensive upgrade over Carty. Also as far as pure hitting is concerned it's hard to argue with his .440 Average in 1894. Ron Gant over Wally Berger is also a head scratcher for me. I know Berger was a CF while Gant was a LF. If you put Berger in LF you'd still have a defensive upgrade while also a better hitter.

    I understand the Lowe/Hubbard over Giles/Prado You went with longevity while I went with production among players ranking within the top 50 all time Braves history in terms of WAR. No problem there, when I think of Braves second basemen I think of Lowe/Hubbard/Lemke(Lemmer)

    That just leaves Garber/Camp. Garber had 8.5 WAR in 856 innings... Camp had 13.4 WAR in 942.1 innings.. Thus Camp had 4.9 more WAR in 86.1 more innings. To put that into context Garber would have needed a better season than Mariano Rivera's best season to equal Camp in production.

    I strongly toyed with that idea. I think I'll do that.

    One thing I found striking is how weak at second that the Braves have been historically.
