Milwaukee Journal, October 4, 1912:
WAR says Walter Johnson and Nap Rucker were the best players in their leagues in 1912, but Speaker and Doyle weren’t terrible choices. Speaker led all MLB position players with 9.8 WAR and Doyle hit .330 with power, got on base regularly, played a solid second base, and played 143 games for a team that played .682 ball.
If I was going to pick an NL position player, I’d have gone with Honus Wagner, but Doyle’s a defensible pick. NL WAR leader Rucker got zero votes, which I guess makes sense in the context of 1912 given that he lost 21 games, but 297.2 IP of 151 ERA+ ball is pretty damn good.
