The January 27 birthday team doesn't look promising either:  is January just a bad birthday month for baseball players?  No Hall of Famers, just four guys with ten major league years, 15 more with five years.  Looks very thin.

Lineup:
1 Bibb Falk, LF
2 Al Wickland, CF
3 John Lowenstein, RF
4 Phil Plantier, 1B
5 Charlie Duffee, 3B
6 Angel Berroa, SS
7 Gil Hatfield, 2B
8 Ken Huckaby, C

Bench: Otis Clymer, OF; Bob Borkowski, OF; Bob Barrett, IF; Stew Hofferth, C.

Rotation:
1 Gavin Floyd
2 Milt Gaston
3 Bill Burns
4 Bob Emslie

Bullpen:   Fred Heimach, Rusty Meacham, Bert Inks, Nick Willhite.

Yep, it's thin.  I am not impressed.  Sorry, Mr. Falk, this team has let you down.


 
The January 26 birthday team does not look promising:  only three guys who played ten major league seasons, and 13 more with five seasons.  No Hall of Famers, of coruse.  Looks like we may not have much to work with here.

Lineup:
1 Charlie Gelbert, SS
2 Bob Nieman, LF
3 Johnny Frederick, CF
4 Rick Schu, 3B
5 Andres Torres, RF
6 Jeff Branson, 2B
7 Rip Russell, 1B
8 Tubby Spencer, C

Bench:  Esteban German, IF; Hick Cady, C; Bob Uecker, C; Jemile Weeks, 2B; Ben Koehler, OF.

Rotation:
1 George Blaeholder
2 Kaiser Wilhelm
3 Tim Pugh
4 Ryan Rowland-Smith

Bullpen:  Brandon Medders, Dick Mauni, Hector Noesi, Eli Cates.

Yes, not much here.  This team would have some trouble even in the minors.

This one could be very bad.  Three players with ten years, and a high of 13 years.  15 more players with five years.  Not expecting good things here.

Lineup:
1 Junior Moore, LF
2  Jose Macias, 3B
3 Danny Richardson, 2B
4 Ed Goodson, 1B
5 Les Nunnamaker, C
6 Gary Holman, RF
7 Mel Roach, CF
8 Ted Kazanski, SS

Bench: Yip Owens, C; Juan Castillo, IF;

Rotation:
1 Vern Ruhle
2 Wally Bunker
3 Fred Glade
4 Brian Holman

Bullpen:  Derrick Turnbow, Dale Mohorcic, Balor Moore, Ed Head, Dan Serafini.

Very not pretty.  Richardson the only decent player in the lineup, just a couple of pretty good pitchers.


 
The January 24 birthday team is another one that looks a bit thin.  Six guys with ten years, fourteen more with five, no Hall of Famers.  We might have a rough go here.

Lineup:
1 Johnny Dickshot, LF
2 Cliff Heathcoate, RF
3 Wally Judnich, CF
4 Dave Brain, 3B
5 Buck Congalton, SS
6 Pinch Thomas, C
7 Neal Finn, SS
8 Earle Gardner, 2B

Bench:  Ted Cox, 3B; Sandy Valdespino, OF; Andy Dirks, OF.

Rotation:
1 Flint Rhem
2 Scott Kazmir
3 Atlee Hammaker
4 Dick Stigman

Bullpen:  Neil Allen, Rob Dibble, Tim Stoddard, Jim Lindsey, Franklin Morales, Curly Ogden.

No much here, but any team with Johnny Dickshot isn't a total loss.

The January 23rd birthday team has ten guys with ten years in the majors, and twelve more with five years.  No Hall of Famers.  Let's see how this shapes up.

Lineup:
1 Sam Jethroe, CF
2 Chico Carrasquel, SS
3 Erubiel Durazo, 1B
4 Charlie Spikes, RF
5 Wily Mo Pena, LF
6 Kurt Bevacqua, 3B
7 Bill Regan, 2B
8 Benny DiStefano, C

Bench:  Joey Amalfitano, IF; Rip Cannell, OF; Jack Saltzgaver, IF; Garry Hancock, OF; Johnny Sturm, 1B;

Rotation:
1 Red Donahue
2 Frank Sullivan
3 Randy Gumpert
4 Jeff Samardzija

Bullpen:  Mark Wohlers, Alan Embree, Don Nottebart, Bobby Burke, Juan Rincon.

Decent lineup, but not much pitching and a thin bench.  Not much catching either.
