From SABR member Paul Moehringer at The Hardball Times on October 19, 2016:
In our latest installment of the Pyramid Rating’s system all-time team series, we take our first glance at the National League and a team that in spite of not being in existence in almost 60 years still ranks as one of the better teams in the National League, the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Making the assumption that this is a modern day league puts the Dodgers at some inherent disadvantages. Not being in existence since 1957 means you miss out on virtually every highly rated defensive outfielder that exists. They also don’t have anyone who you could remotely consider a modern day reliever and have very limited depth. No Brooklyn Dodger team ever needed to carry 12 pitchers at a time.
Even so, this is a team that won 12 National League pennants. If that’s the kind of talent pool you have, you’ll be able to win under any constraints, and as we will soon see this is not a team that should be taken lightly.
