    Good list overall. If I am trying to win - I'd take out some of these relievers and replace with better pitchers who were starters, say like Carpenter and Cooper and Warneke, etc. I would probably flip one of these guys with Haines. Even considering relievers - hard to leave off Sutter.

    I would definitely put Frisch in over Red. I would also put Mize in at 1B, switch Stan to LF and drop Medwick as Mize > Medwick. There is no way I don't get Mize on this team.

    Hard to argue too hard about the other results.

      Chuck Taylor??? I had to check BBR, I do barely remember him. 3 seasons, nothing remarkable. How about Sutter, Lee Smith, Jason Isringhausen, Trevor Rosenthal...For a LHRP I'd go with Al Brazile or Joe Hoerner over Hrabosky. Also John Tudor has to be a starter. I'd have Stan in RF, love to have him and Albert in the lineup. Maybe Frisch as utility infielder, drop Marion.
      It Might Be? It Could Be?? It Is!

        C: Simmons, Molina
        1B: Pujols, Mize
        2B: Hornsby, Frisch
        SS: Smith, Marion
        3B: Boyer
        LF: Brock, Medwick
        CF: Edmonds, McGee
        RF: Musial, Slaughter

        Rotation: Gibson, Dean, Cooper, Brecheen, Haines
        BP: Sutter, Hrabosky, McDaniel, Wilks, Brazle

        Frisch can backup at third as well and is a defensive replacement at second. Sutter does have his number retired with the Cardinals. So many good players left off including a few HOFers.

        Lineup
        Brock
        Pujols
        Musial
        Hornsby
        Edmonds
        Boyer
        Simmons
        Smith

          Ad Role and drop one of these easily replaceable relievers.

          Wainwright has to be on the staff.

            Who is the best catcher in Cards history between Simmons and Yadi?
            Probably an endless debate due to one being great offensively and not too shabby defensively and the other one being great defensively and not too shabby offensively.

              Simmons as an overall career (so far). Yadi purely as a Cardinal.

              How is that for riding the fence?

                Not too shabby. :P

                My dad always liked Simmons over Porter.

                  Simmons over Porter isn't even close. Porter played well one post season and that was it. BTW McGee should have been the WS MVP.

                    I mean, of course Simmons > Porter...

                    But Porter was a well- above average catcher in STL from 1981-1985.

                      What I meant is that my dad didn't like that the Cards got rid of Simmons and brought in Porter to replace him. Simmons was a switch hitter in the middle of lineup which would have worked out for Whitey but Whitey coached Porter in KC and felt like he needed a voice in the locker room to get the players to believe in his system which is why he brought Porter in and traded away Simmons.
