DateQuestionAnswer
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Could you assemble a competitive team using only players who are at least 40 years old?
(Evan from Vancouver, BC)
Probably not; even with all of the advancements in conditioning, you'd be stretched at the skill positions up the middle, you might have to run more of a tag-team college-style pitching staff, and depth would be an issue. Catchers over 40 don't have a great track record for being able to handle really good stuff--Fisk at the end was especially brutal, costing Jack McDowell strikes because he couldn't really receive Black Jack's slider--but there again, you wouldn't really have a pitching staff with lots of guys with lots of good stuff, which sort of takes the steam out of a proposition over whether or not this team would be competitive.
