  • Trivia

    • Mr. Burns' proposed lineup and the years they played:
      P Mordecai "Three-Finger" Brown (1903-1916)
      C Gabby Street (1904-1931);
      1B Cap Anson (1871-1897; incidentally, one of the most racist players in baseball history)
      2B Napoleon Lajoie (1896-1916)
      SS Honus Wagner (1897-1917; arguably the greatest player who ever lived)
      3B Pie Traynor (1920-1937; also referenced in "Dancin' Homer")
      LF Shoeless Joe Jackson (1908-1920; banned for life in Black Sox Scandal)
      CF Harry Hooper (1909-1925)
      RF Jim Creighton (a superstar before the game got organized. As Smithers notes, he died in 1862 at the age of 21.)

      Mr. Burns' must have been quite the fan from the mid-19th to early 20th century. That team has six Hall-of-Famers (Joe Jackson would have been seven had he not been banned).
