When baseball nerds attack! Next on Sick Sad World.
You ever have one of those conversations that starts out with a simple “man I miss Player X” or “I wish we could flip Player Y for Player Z” and then derails into hilarious dream rosterbating?
Okay so maybe it’s just us, but we had a long-winded one of those tonight, with some help from some of our favorite partners in crime on Twitter, Mac (of Third Street Kings) and Christine, and we figured we’d share the fruits of our late night, nostalgia infused labors.
What we ended up with was a whole lot of defense, a bit more offense than we originally expected, and a team we would love watching on and off the field, even though we’d probably be tortured just as much by them as any other incarnation of the Giants.
Disclaimer: This is meant in the spirit of sheer ridiculousness and not actual business minded baseball. We’ve ignored things like age, availability, and uh… in some cases, objective talent. We did keep it to 25 guys, though, and it is still largely based on the current roster, so there are some omissions of people we are rather fond of. This is purely nostalgia fueled, sentimental, biased as all hell good times.
We can almost see J.T. Snow fielding this roster, and we’re pretty sure that’s a good encapsulation of why we love him. Also this is proof of just how much we need to never actually be allowed to manage anything more serious than a Little League team.
