The Sabermagics select the greatest second baseman of all time (tied with Eddie Collins imo) and perhaps the most underrated player of all time by traditional metrics, Joe Morgan.

Upon hearing that he had been selected to the only sabermetrically inclined team, Joe Morgan informed the Team President that he and his team "are jokes." He also said that that he will refuse to play for "a bunch geeks trying to play video games." (real quotes!) The Team President agreed to allow Morgan not to play so long as Morgan agrees to never announce another game again.

what's the minimum for games played at a position? Honestly don't remember Rickey playing much CF, but then again I'm only 22, so I didn't see his first 10-12 years in the MLB.

He's not eligible for CF, only the OF spots.

But please keep all discussion to the Discussion threads -- this thread is for selections only.

SP - Kid Nichols

Quote:
Charles Kid Nichols ranks among the game's all-time winners, totaling 360 victories over a 15-year major league career. As a 20-year-old rookie in 1890, he led the Boston Beaneaters with 27 victories. He went on to win 30 or more games a record seven times, compiling 10 straight years of 20-plus wins and leading the league in victories in three consecutive seasons (1896-‘1898). Remarkably, he completed 531 of the 561 games he started. In his first nine seasons with Boston, he sparked the club to five league championships.


He took two years off (1902, 1903) and still came back and won 21 games the next season.
