POSTING TIP FOR THE DAY: When composing a post, think about what you would say if the intended recipient was an individual who was actually sitting just two feet in front of you, in person, rather than just some far away and anonymous audience who only can identify you as text on a PC screen - - and then write your post in that manner. It makes for remarkable and sincere discourse.

And now, on to the Win Shares:
Players; Honus Wagner (Pittsburgh) 35, Ginger Beaumont (Pittsburgh) 31, Fred Clarke (Pittsburgh) 29, Tommy Leach (Pittsburgh) 27, Fred Tenney (Boston) Jimmy Sheckard (Brooklyn) and Roy Thomas (Philadelphia) 25 each.
Pitchers; Jack Taylor (Chicago) 32, Vic Willis (Boston) and Noodles Hahn (Cincinnati) 29, Doc White (Philadelphia) 27, Jack Chesbro (Pittsburgh) 25.
Top four players all from Pittsburgh! No wonder they ran away with the pennant, by 27.5 games. I wonder when they clinched....
Top player was Honus, again. Get used to reading that....
For top pitcher I'll choose Jack Taylor, who dominated in ERA+. Chesbro and Willis had more wins, but no one was more effective.
Manager to Fred Clarke. Hardly anyone else was over .500, it has to be.
Top rookie to Joe Tinker, I guess. Tinker batted just .261, but I can't see anyone else. Johnny Evers also debuted this year.

Best Batter: Honus Wagner
Even an ordinary year from Wagner is good enough to be the best.
Best Pitcher: Jack Taylor
23-11 with a ERA+ of 202 in 324 innings. HE would be the comeback player of the year too.
Best Manager: Fred Clarke
Pittsburgh finished 27.5 games ahead of it's nearest competitor.
