Comments: Very LH lineup. ... Slow. ... Williams may be the single worst defensive regular on the HoF teams. ... All other OFs are 1s at all positions, except Kaline's 2 in CF ... Not a lot of position flexibility. ... Likely four-man rotation of Spahn, Roberts, Wynn and Ford, with Wilhelm as relief ace.
