Henry, don't lose hope. 1946 was a magical year, and if the imported position quirks get worked out, then we have the potential for a great start.
To me, that year signifies a new beginning. The vets are coming home, a new era of unprecendented prosperity is dawning, and MLB is breaking attendance records.
With free agency having yet to rear its ugly head, and expansion being a non-factor, I will reiterate my belief that this talent pool was unmatched by ANY era in baseball's history.
If and when the code gets fixed, this surfeit of incoming talent makes for an exciting time.
In five years or less (using the 50 man rosters), here come Mantle and Mays.
