    That's a tough call! I'd rate Oliver the better defensive catcher (not by much), and Taub the better offensive catcher. I'd probably go with the Taub too, since they were close on D.

    What is most encouraging about your list, is that 4 of the 5 pitchers are on the current rotation. We all know pitching wins in the playoffs. If our bullpen can get out of this rut, and the hitting can pick up a bit, I still like our chances.

    Baseball is usually a game of streaks. This team is built well and will rebound.

There was some love for Eric Davis as well, although his best years were prior to 1993. Sean Casey was pretty good, but you're not going to replace Votto with him. [B]What do you guys think?[B]

    Personally, I think it's a major waist of time and space.
