Braves Dynasty Lineup

on .

We're all bored from a lack of Braves baseball. So, for your Braves' fix, I made a Dynasty lineup. It consists of the best single seasons from a player at each position (in my opinion) since the beginning of the Division Championship streak in 1991. I have also listed the second and third best seasons at that position. I have one rule: No player can be 1st place at 2 different positions. (The one exception is Smoltz as a starter and reliever.) Also, a pitcher can have only one spot in the rotation (Maddux might have taken all 5). This is not a batting order. Lineup C Javy Lopez '03 .328/378/687 43 HR 109 RBI 2nd place-Javy Lopez '98 3rd place-Javy Lopez '97 1B Andres Galarraga '98 .305/397/595 44 HR 121 RBI 2nd place-Fred McGriff '94 3rd place-Andres Galarraga '00 2B Marcus Giles '03 .316/390/526 21 HR 69 RBI 2nd place-Marcus Giles '05 3rd place-Bret Boone '99 SS Jeff Blauser '97 .308/405/482 17 HR 70 RBI 2nd place-Jeff Blauser '93 3rd place-Rafael Furcal '03 3B Chipper Jones '99 (MVP season) .319/441/633 45 HR 110 RBI 2nd place-Chipper Jones '01 3rd place-Chipper Jones '00 LF Ryan Klesko '96 .282/364/530 34 HR 93 RBI (I actually think Chipper's '02 and '03 seasons were better, but I didn't want the same player in the lineup at 2 positions.) 2nd place-Chipper Jones '02 3rd place-Chipper Jones '03 CF Andruw Jones '05 .263/347/575 51 HR 128 RBI 2nd place-Andruw Jones '00 3rd place-Andruw Jones '02 RF Gary Sheffield '03 .330/419/604 39 HR 132 RBI 2nd place-JD Drew '04 3rd place-David Justice '93 Starting Pitchers RHP Greg Maddux '95 (Cy Young Award) 19-2 record 1.63 ERA 147 hits allowed, 23 BB, 181 K 10 CG, 3 SO LHP Tom Glavine '98 (Cy Young Award) 20-6 record 2.47 ERA 202 hits allowed, 74 BB, 157 K 229 IP RHP John Smoltz '96 (Cy Young Award) 24-8 record 2.95 ERA 199 hits allowed, 55 BB, 276 K 254 IP, 6 CG, 2 SO RHP Kevin Millwood '99 18-7 record 2.68 ERA 168 hits allowed, 59 BB, 205 K 228 IP LHP Denny Neagle '97 20-5 record 2.97 ERA 204 hits allowed, 49 BB, 172 K 233 IP, 4 CG, 4 SO Bullpen RHP John Smoltz '03 LHP Chris Hammond '02 LHP John Rocker '99 (Closer, because Smoltz is also a starter and Hammond was only a set-up man) LHP Mike Remlinger '99 RHP Mark Wohlers '95 RHP Kerry Ligtenberg '98 RHP Darren Holmes '02 ... Differing opinions and observations?
