    Over the course of several weeks to kick off the new year, several of TCN’s best and brightest aspiring General Managers tested their mettle against each other and the slings and arrows of the snake draft, coming up with 9 “all time” Cardinals teams. The rules were that participants were required to pick a lineup of eight position players, two bench players, five pitchers and a manager. All draftees were required to have played one full year or two partial years with the St Louis Cardinals. GMs have set their lineups, and now’s the time to determine which team is best by settling it “on the field!”

    Your role? To vote for those teams you feel are the best and brightest, by using the “Contact Us” form on the site. Brian Walton has generously agreed to help us tabulate results. Anyone is eligible to vote, but one vote maximum per user applies. Here’s how your vote will count:

    1-All rosters will be listed in the nine posts after this one. I will post them in initial draft order. Your vote is not required to consider only time with the Cardinals. Teams were tasked with finding the best overall players, not to specifically consider only the tenure with our favorite team. Your vote may be formulated however you choose (favorite players, fascination with power, a tilt toward pitchers, most Hall of Famers, SABR-leaning, etc).

    2-You will use the “Contact Us” page to send an email with the subject line “ALL TIME CARDINALS DRAFT VOTING.” CLICK TO VOTE

    3-Please list your username for your vote to be legit (this will play into section 5).

    4-Vote for your TOP 5 teams, in order (1-5). Please list the team name (given by the manager) with each entry.

    5-You may *not* vote for your own team.

    6- Please do not post your vote in this thread. I would like the results to be as private as possible to add to the fun for everyone as the games go on.

    7-Results will be weighted as we do for other voting results. So a #1 vote is worth 5 points, a #2 vote 4 points, and so on. Tiebreaker will be most #1 votes, then most #2 votes, etc.

    8-Each series, including the play-in series, will be a best of three games.

    9-A randomized bracket has been set up, and the higher point earner in the voting will win each matchup. Thus, the top vote earner will be the winner overall. All other matchup winners will be determined by the weighted results of the vote. For example, if the #4 vote earner plays the #7 vote earner in the first round, they will advance, but if they face the #2 vote earner in the second round, the #2 will move on.

    10-Dates-Voting will close at 9 AM EST/7 AM CST on January 29, 2022. This will give us time to collect and sort all the votes, and for me to start writing the game narratives. I intend on posting one game per day, which should get us through the next month and hopefully into the start of baseball again.

    The rest of the schedule will be as follows:

    Opening Series: Jan 29-31
    Quarterfinals: Feb 1-3, Feb 4-6, Feb 7-9, Feb 10-12
    Semifinals: Feb 13-15, Feb 16-18
    World Series: Feb 19-21

    Adding my appreciation to stlcard25 for a fabulous job. Great idea for an off-season diversion, and a terrific job in maintaining the draft and keeping things in line.

    Also thanks Brian for working with stlcard25 and setting up a way to play a tournament of these teams.

    Agreed. I would like to express my genuine appreciation prior to my consistent immature displays of poor sportsmanship which could follow any losses my team suffers.



    Thanks for all the work you put into this. made the winter a little less boring. NigelT I gotta say your team is a solid 2nd place behind mine.

    I am told that voting is progressing…there’s still plenty of time to vote!

    I’m eager to see how things turn out. I’ve been writing some preliminary game writeups so that we are ready to go once the results are final. One thing is clear…one of every two players in a matchup will be happy with the way things go. Lol



    Getting a message to try later.
