I believe that all players are playing at their peak.
DOH! (Where's that Homer Simpson emoticon when you need it?) How did I miss this quick start? I used to do a similar thing with Tony LaRussa Baseball back in the day, but I had to key in all of the data to create the players. This sure looks easier.
Your idea to organize the two Texas teams into one is great. I think Tony Gwynn on the Angels fits really well too.
As a Cardinals fan, I have to nit-pick your choice of Andujar over Bob Forsch. However, you are right on to put Brock in CF given the corner outfield choices. I always used Slaughter in right and Musial in left, but getting Medwick into the lineup is a good call to give them another RH bat. **
I have derailed your thread enough, but I will be reading.
** EDIT: It just dawned on me that these were probably the AI's choices and not yours. Still interesting.
