    All the dudes before 2016 are 40 pts better hitters if they played with the newer bat.

    Pirtle and Frazier were total hitting freaks given the times. They would be 380 and 400 guys today. Even Vickerson was pretty good hitter for his time and would be quite stellar now. Vicks 9 HRs in 2011 are like 16 HRs today. Westy never hit double digit HRs.

    Hot take and will be attacked. Pirtle and Frazier were so good defensively, they made us think ground balls were automatic. They were a source of great strength and confidence. We probably don't leave Virginia with a Super Regional victory in 2013 with Westburg playing SS. No way. Westy is like more like James than people remember. He got to ball and threw it hard, but one reason Tanner Allen moved to OF was that our MIFs were so erratic.

    Frazier and Pirtle today would lower the ERA by 0.75 to 1.25 runs. Something like that

    Frazier and Pirtle are the no doubt up the middle combo for the All-Decade team. Didn't we lead the nation in double-plays that season?

    Is nobody else going to jump on my Connor Powers at 1B train? That guy was a beast.

    This is a great thread.... who coaches this legion of honor?

    Would say Lemonis but he might start Hatch. No Cohen due to meddling, bunting, and mid-count pitching changes.

    HC - Andy Cannizzaro the 2017 Edition
    Hitting - Gautreau
    Pitching - Foxhall
    Special Assistant- Cheese
