National league All-Stars Updated!

NOW we're done: The National League All-Stars Page is updated at long last!

A quick note about inclusion... In the spirit of the "All-Star Team," even though the were selected on Career WAR (total, not just with that league!) I still wanted to try to get SOME representation from each team.  As it works out, I had that with just one exception: The ROCKIES.

The Marlins had Kevin Brown, albeit on the A.L. Team and an off-roster representative in Mike Piazza. (Who's shown on the page in the Marlins uniform he wore for a whopping EIGHT DAYS in 1998. lol)

The Devil Rays had an off-roster rep in Wade Boggs (again, shown in his Devil Rays jersey, c.1998-'99.)

And the Diamondbacks had Randy Johnson (on the A.L. Team) and Curt Schilling who legitimately made the N.L. squad.

But there was a single player on either team who'd played even a single game for the Colorado Rockies. EVER. So TODD HELTON's inclusion was by far and away the least embarrassing way to remedy that.  He was the ONLY player, of the 80 on either team, that was not chosen for his WAR ranking alone.  And don't worry: He didn't knock off Willie McCovey!  The guy who was cut for Helton was Roger Connor, another dead-ball era player who I've already been told I have too many of. I disagree, but I don't suppose I'll here any complaints about this in any case.

Also, while it APPEARS that we don't have any DODGERS. (Yeah, IKR?!) That's only because Piazza is shown in his marlins jersey.  It IS a bit odd that there were any other All-Time Dodgers though. :/

All-Time Diamondbacks Updated!

The All-Time Arizona Diamondbacks page is updated!

AND with that, all 30 teams are completed: Rosters selected and cards posted. (At least the FRONTS.) ;)

Officially there IS one team left to post: The All-Time National League All-Stars. After that, and in another week or two once the season is over, I'll start posting team stats. A few teams (those without active players on them) have their stats posted already.  I'll also revamp the Standing page as well.

Beyond that? I would like to do something with individual player stats, but I now from experience that this can be time-consuming and tedious, so I'm not sure just yet how I want to do it.

In the meantime, please enjoy and let me know if you have any questions about any of my selections! :)

All-Time American League All-Stars Updated!

So... I was going to finish the Diamondbacks page first, but since I already had the cards done, and the finished now, I went ahead and updated the All-Time American League All-Stars Page.

There are a handful of bizarre looking choices, but please remember that the players were chosen first on the basis of TOTAL Career War, and then assigned to the respective League's team according to which league they had the most WAR with, and what the alternative choices would be.

All-Time Rays updated!

The All-Time Tampa Bay Rays page is updated!

...And with that, the American League Pages are all updated. (A.L. All-Stars coming soon!)
