The action is in full swing now with half of today’s matchups already receiving votes. Let’s now turn our attention to the other side of the bracket and the Champions Region. Remember, you can find out more about the tournament as well as see the full bracket in this post. Polls close at noon tomorrow.
The speediest of the speedsters in Lou Brock versus Dal Maxvill, who of course played shortstop but I always think of as a GM.
You have a ribald and goofy reliever in Steve Kline facing off against a classy guy that stabilized second base for a while in Fernando Vina.
A couple of guys with stereotypes: Mike Shannon as the Moonman, J.D. Drew as the DL Dude. Stereotypes aren’t always accurate, though sometimes there’s some truth in them.
Steve Carlton, one of the greatest lefties the game has seen, though not much of it in St. Louis. Jeff Suppan, who helped the Cards to two World Series, though his October baserunning is remembered as much as his pitching.
Our last matchups of the day come your way around 2 PM, with a little Pepper mixed in the middle!
- The top half of the Arch Region opened for business.
- The bottom half of the Ballpark Village Region started play.
