Well in Wilhelm/Feller's prime most of the players either weren't born yet or were infants. Only Wilhelm, Feller, and Richard Simmons were old enough to throw with any authority (even if it was girlish......... such as in Feller's case).

So I'd go with Wilhelm/Dick Simmons' side to win since they have 2 able-bodied people.

Can't believe I'm actually sitting here thinking about what team is better. Maybe I should just go to bed and read a good book.

However, since this deep coversation actually caused me to fart I must add my 2 cents.
My team make up would be a bit different. I like the Ichiro pick. But I can't understand why small hard throwing guys aren't more prevelent on both these teams. I'd take Pedro and Wagner over anyone listed. I'd also throw in the Road Runner. He never gets hit by anything. I'd also take Jeter, well, because he is clutch.

There is no statistical evidence clutch exists in dodgeball. :-/

By adding the Taco Bell dog to team 1 my dislike of the team only grows. Now they have the most annoying team mascot (monkey), the most annoying TV ad mascot (dog), a guy who throws like Johnny Damon (Simmons), a dead guy (Wilhelm), a guy who will be frightened by Clifford's Godzilla-size resemblance (Ichiro), a player too fragile to pitch more than an inning (Rivera), and a player with only one vowel in a 7 letter last name (Schmidt). A team of oddballs like this is sure to lose.

Mad brings up a good point. If RJ can hit a bird flying at full speed, he can probably hit a monkey too. I forgot to factor that into the equatoin.

But then again, RJ was an infant in Wilhelm's prime, so it would be tough for him to get enough velocity on a throw.

Ever seen him in the postseason? The Two-inning save is his specialty. In '96 as a setup man he often pitched 2 innings too.

I really can't believe you said that.

Rivera is the crappiest dodgeball player ever. A dead Wilhelm would own him.
