Well I'd agree if there wasn't a pseudo-consensus that we wanted a more contemporary pitcher on the list.

How mercifully brief.

I'll be going on a road trip from the 14th to the 21st. If anyone isn't happy with this roster, you've got until the latter to make it known and make your argument; after that these names will be set in stone.

Also, what do you think of this new title? Dynamic, no?

really, greg maddux? what about phil niekro or christy mathewson instead?

pretty much everyone you have is old school besides maddux and smith... i like the old timer theme, and i think it should be consistent.

Even if the player names are old-timers, I doubt I'll make the graphical theme specifically old-timey
Then again, that might be a fun way to differentiate this map from the other sports maps...

both fielders and pitchers span all of baseball. I like the idea of a contemporary pitcher, and he's the most deserving of all the contemporary pitcher's (if you mention any steroid users i will cry)

Ya, I think our list is pretty solid. Of course there are some deserving names we didn't include, but you can't have everyone.

There are no Orioles on your list of ballplayers, and I must object. Not to anyone on the list specifically, I'd just love to see an O on there. I see your home city, so there's no way Schmidt is going off in favor of Brooks. I think I could make an argument for Cal in place of Ozzie though.

I do sort of agree with Maddux, I had to think for a minute of which Greg fit in there with the rest of the legends. However, he was an excellent pitcher and sure to be a first ballot HOFer so I think he can stick. I am surprised that Stephen is not listed - he is the chosen one after all ;)

I think the defenders legend could be slightly rewritten. How about "Defenders assault each other as shown and can attack two territories away".

Shouldn't the mound be a red 6 to denote a killer neutral?

What about a bonus (+1) for each fielder you own? I am thinking they won't come into play much. I know they have the ranged attack, but with the balls being killer neutrals, after the first person they will be a 1 that is easily gone through, so I could see many players taking the same route out. (does that make sense?)

"Assault" is the official CC lingo and if I change it to "attack" Andy will yell at me. The other changes don't fit in the space very well. Is this a clarity issue or just aesthetics?

Good catch... not that it matters for the final product.

What about a bonus (+1) for each fielder you own? I am thinking they won't come into play much. I know they have the ranged attack, but with the balls being killer neutrals, after the first person they will be a 1 that is easily gone through, so I could see many players taking the same route out. (does that make sense?)

I can see that. They're useful for extra mobility but I don't think a +1 bonus would hurt. Especially since the field bonuses are all so porous.

I agree. Maybe even a "+X for Y" type of thing?

+1 for each one would be simpler than +1 for each 2. It'd also promote more stacking on defenders, but I think players would stack on them anyway.
