All time best team.

Post by bygmester »

It looks like this could be the final year of the Ramirez Berra league. We don't have a Hall of Fame but I'm wondering if any owners could suggest some names for an all-time team.

Mantilla with only 68 blown saves could be the most dominant player in league history.

After Mantilla's #'s I wanted to see how he ranked against real life closers.

Trevor Hoffman had 591 saves for his career and only blew 30 of them. I never realized he was that dominant.

I'll take a look later, but those are solid choices. Might possibly choose Nick House over Holdsworth (although still active, he will finish with just a few fewer wins but quite a bit lower ERA).

Lifetime Holdsworth had 12,023 All-Star votes, House is at 11,951 with a season to go, so pretty close.

My gauge is that any starting pitcher with 8,000 or more lifetime All-Star votes or any hitter with 6,000 or more is a HOF lock. Relief pitchers are tougher to gauge, particularly if they spent any time as a starter. My sense is 4,000 or more votes would get someone who is primarily a reliever in.
