I went
MGR Hornsby (would’ve taken the $1 option until I saw who it was)
C McCarver
1B Albert
2B Wong
SS Ozzie
3B Rolen
LF Coleman
CF Lankford
RF Musial
SP Carp
RP Rosenthal

Of course I’d also pay $55 and pay the CBT.

My team is a perennial WS contender

C Matheny-$1
1B Pujols-$5
2B Herr-$2
SS Ozzie-$5
3B Rolen-$4
LF Coleman-$2
CF Pham-$1
RF Musial-$5
SP Gibson-$5
RP Rosenthal-$1

MGR Hornsby-$2

I took the manager I could afford after selecting the players. Went cheapest on Catcher and Reliever; because if you have Gibson; it doesn't matter who either of those are. I really wanted Lou in LF but didn't have enough dry powder; Pham was a steal at a buck.

C-Matheny $1
1B-Pujols $5
2B-Wong $1
3B-Rolen $4
SS-Smith $5
LF-Holliday $3
CF-McGee $4
RF-Musial $5
SP-Carpenter $3
RP-Rosenthal $1
MGR- Matheny $1

Player-Manager Mike Matheny leads the Cards to the WS and saves DeWallet's money

Edit- I have a free dollar because I counted Matheny twice. Upgrade McGee to Edmonds

Ok, this is fun!

C - Ted Simmons $4
1b - Johnny Mize $3
2b - Frankie Frisch $3
SS - Edgar Renteria $2
3b - Joe Torre $3
RF - Larry Walker $3
CF - Ray Lankford $2
LF - Joe Medwick $4
SP - Bob Gibson $5
RP - Todd Worrell $2
MGR - Rogers Hornsby $2
___
$33

The value picks on the list are Lankford, Renteria, Torre, Burkett (look him up... awesome), Frisch and Walker. Brock, McGee, and Isringhausen are the traps. Maybe Curt Flood, too. Those guys aren't bad, just overpriced for what you actually get.

It just depends on what you actually get in this little game. Pujols' peak is worth the $5, but if you think in terms of career, Mize at $3 is probably the better choice. I went with Medwick because his peak is Triple Crown worthy, but Burkett sat between 5-7 WAR for 8-9 years and he's only $1. Do I get Medwick's peak on my team or Burkett's consistency?

Fun stuff.
