BEST FANTASY TEAM OF ALL TIME... Make it!

Postby fishnuts » Mon Mar 01, 2004 1:00 am

Take a break from your 2004 scouting, trading & drafting for this fun game.
Pick the best historical all time fantasy baseball team. Pick any guys from any years and build the best. Use a player only once per team, so pick his best season. Select 9 pitchers. 2 Catchers. One each: 1B-2B-SS-3B. Two IFs. One each: LF - CF - RF. Two OF's. One DH/UT.
Make sure you use REAL fielders for left, center, right...none of this all RFs. Display the year you're using for each player too.

We'll need totals for: Runs, Homers, RBIs, SB, Avg., OPS.,
We'll need totals for: Wins, Losses, SO, SV, ERA, WHIP

I did this back in 1992. There have been some monster all time great seasons since then, so I bet my team will need some updating which I intend to do this week.
Originally I used these guys: Ruth, Gehrig, Hornsby, Banks,Cobb, DiMaggio,Williams, Foxx, Sisler, Walsh, W Johnson, Ekersley, Feller, and more... some targets to go for 581 HR, 2212 RBI, 162 SV, .359 Avg. See? Ain't that awesome?

Who are you gonna use?
I love to hear the MOANS and GROANS of my competetors when I take their draft pick one round too early.

If we're talking a single season here....then you have to include Dutch Leonard's 1914 season for the Boston Red Sox.

19-5, 225 IP, .96ERA, .884 WHIP, 176 K,s and 3 saves to boot!! He gave up 24 Earned runs all season!!!

He's no Walter Johnson, but those numbers would certainly help the team.

Now we're gettin' it.
Specifics...stats.

Heres the starters that I used back in '92 and some thumbnail stats for their years.
Walsh '08 40-15 269K 1.42 ERA
Gibson '68 23-7 268K 1.12 ERA
W Johnson '13 36-7 243K 1.09 ERA
Koufax '65 26-8 382K 2.04 ERA
Carlton '72 27-10 310K 1.98 ERA
Feller '46 26-15 348K 2.18 ERA
that's a team ERA below 2.00!


Anybody done better since?
Can Leonards excellent season replace any of these? Awesome ERA but too few Ks to fit in...?

I don't have a full team yet, but Want to say one of my RP would be

Eck in 1990: 4-2 with 48 SV a 0.61 ERA and 0.61 WHIP with 73 K. He had 4 walks in 73 1/3 IP!!!!!!!

*edit*
Here are my starting 5 as of right now.

Charley Radbourn 1884 - 59 W 441 K 1.38 ERA 0.92 WHIP
John Clackson 1885 - 53 W 308 K 1.85 ERA 0.95 WHIP
Guy Hecker 1884 - 52 W 385 K 1.80 ERA 0.87 WHIP
Charlie Buffington 1884 - 48 W 417 K 2.15 ERA 0.99 WHIP
John Ward 1879 - 47 W 239 K 2.15 ERA 1.03 WHIP

That totals out to 259 Wins 1790 K 1.87 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP

I probably should take out Ward and put in an ERA guy, funny taking a guy out for a High ERA with a 2.15 ERA.

if fishnuts wants another pitcher and can take anyone from any era - Jack Chesbro had a pretty good 1904.

41-12 record, 239 K, 1.82 ERA, 1.06 WHIP - he did pitch alot of innings and only accounted 239 K's - but his ERA, WHIP and Win total would be nice to have.

After looking at a few more, and fishnets list I def need Walter Johnson's 1913 season in there.

That Changes my overall Stats: 248 W 1794 K 1.65 ERA 0.90 WHIP
