Pittsburgh Press, March 5, 1914:
It’s tough to have too much of a beef with that, knowing what they knew in 1913. I’d have had Chief Meyers catching and Sherry Magee in left, but otherwise it’s fine.
Jack Barry is an interesting call at shortstop, but it makes sense from their perspective: He was the best shortstop in baseball in 1913, was in his mid 20s, had an excellent glove, and many of the other candidates (Wagner, Weaver, Chapman) were either very old or very young.
Regarding Daubert at first, there were players who had better seasons in 1913 (McInnis, maybe Gandil and/or Saier) but they were too young to have any established track record of success.
In an era when guys like Rabbit Maranville (1.8 WAR in 1913) were legitimate MVP candidates (he was third), they largely got this one right.
