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


Hell no you don't, that's the Matheny tax.

You can make a case for Pujols I guess, but Mize for $3 is definitely the best pick at 1B - 171 OPS+ as a Cardinal. McGwire is a terrible value in the middle of those two at $4.

I guess it depends on if you are getting 1998 Big Mac or career Big Mac...and as Fat said earlier; career numbers you go for Mize. But I wouldn't begrudge anyone taking Pujols when you think about this as a Cardinal team; you are thinking about the player in their Cardinal career.

I definitely built my team just by feel, it didn't seem a lot of fun to go diving into B-R and really put a ton of thought into this for me anyways.

I'm not going to say there are no wrong answers on building your team because there definitely are, but there's a lot of right ones too.

I'm not playing. I wanted Rod Booker and Tim Jones to round out my middle infield.

I'm looking at some 5 year peaks on BRef and that makes Pujols's case a stronger one. He edges Mize by about 10 WAR.

Hornsby has a video game peak of 49.9 WAR from 1921-25, .402(!)/.474/.690 204 OPS+. Pay him his $5 already.

Hornsby gets his fiver as a player; but as a manager he loses value.
