    This is as close as it gets. I like my lineup a little bit more than his.

    As for pitching staffs, I like my starters better. The unit is great, but Satchel has a legitimate claim as being the GOAT. Matthewson is also arguably a top 5 pitcher of all time, and I think has the edge over Carlton. The middle and end of the rotation I believe is also slightly in my favour.

    He does have a better bullpen, but we cracked Rocket City's pen and I think theirs was better, no disrespect to Goose.

    Should be a good one. Good luck.

    This is probably the best matchup that I've seen between outfields in all the years that I've participated in the ATD. Paige and Mathewson are an incredible 1-2 punch in a rotation but my rotation is considerably deeper which I believe will bode well for me in a 7 game series. Waddell is often overlooked but his peak is comparable to Koufax's. Speaking of players who are overlooked, Arky Vaughan is a top 5 shortstop of all time that is barely ever mentioned. As for my bullpen, it's more than just Goose. Jesse Orosco carved out a 24 year career by frustrating the best hitters of the era. He was constantly a thorn in the side of Barry Bonds. I don't see why he can't do the same to Babe and Griffey.

    Should be an excellent series. Best of luck, Vegeta.

    The outfields are great. I have 5 of the 6 in my top 60 all time.

    Clearly you all did a good job drafting judging by the closeness of the results the last two rounds, but congratulations to House of David on yet another 4-3 series win for the ATD trophy!
