My all-star team:
C: John Clapp, CIN
1B: Cap Anson, CHN
2B: Fred Dunlap, CLE
3B: Roger Connor, TRO
SS: Arthur Irwin, WOR
LF: Abner Dalrymple, CHN
CF: George Gore, CHN/Paul Hines, PRO
RF: Jim O'Rourke, BSN
P: Larry Corcoran, CHN
P: Monte Ward, PRO
MVP: CF George Gore, CHN/CF Paul Hines, PRO
Rookie Hitter: 2B Fred Dunlap, CLE
Rookie Pitcher: Larry Corcoran, CHN

With most teams now using two pitchers for significant innings, I decided it would be appropriate to honor a second pitcher as an "all-star". The bolded "P" indicates my choice for the top pitcher in the league.

I went with Arthur Irwin at shortstop; I have him .7 WAR behind Tom Burns, but Palmer's FR have Burns at -29 and Irwin at +25. Fred Dunlap gets the nod over Roger Connor as top rookie hitter; Connor is .1 ahead in WAR, but Dunlap is +7 FR while Connor is -11.

Again, Paul Hines shares a MVP nod. Gore is ahead in WAR 4.8 to 4.7, Hines in FR +3 to +2. Gore has the edge against a higher baseline, and he played for the league's best team, so if I had to break the tie he would be my choice. But I don't have to and I'm more comfortable not making a choice.
