    You get the idea. Have fun!
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Looks like the multi-sport guys allow you to jump from sport to sport, e.g. Deion Sanders, Bo Jackson, Dave DeBusschere, Danny Ainge,

    I played on a Kenyon College team that played against Tim Belcher when he pitched for Mount Vernon Nazarene.
    That connects me to nearly every Red since 1992
