Comments: Bresnahan/Schalk is clearly the weakest catching combo of the HoF pool, maybe in the entire league. ... Bender figures to be bullpen ace; pretty clear four-man rotation of Matty, Alex, Brown and Waddell. ... Lost more than 1200 wins to Obamas, and the staff is still really good ... Lajoie is coded as a pretty good defensive 1b, and I'd rather have him or Collins in the lineup than Sisler. ... Jackson deserves a post unto himself.
