is it ok to just type my oracle results in here (as opposed to pasting them from the site as I've been having difficulty with it)? I'm in if this is ok:

ROY THOMAS played with PETE ALEXANDER for the 1911 PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES

PETE ALEXANDER played with GUS MANCUSO for the 1928 ST. LOUIS CARDINALS

GUS MANCUSO played with STAN MUSIAL for the 1942 ST.LOUIS CARDINALS

STAN MUSIAL
played with HOYT WILHELM for the 1957 ST. LOUIS CARDINALS

HOYT WILHELM played with DAVEY LOPES for the 1972 LOS ANGELES DODGERS

DAVEY LOPES played with GREG MADDUX for the 1986 CHICAGO CUBS

GREG MADDUX played with JASON SCHMIDT for the 1996 ATLANTA BRAVES

JASON SCHMIDT played with JOE NATHAN for the 2003 SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS

I hope it's ok in this format (note: Roy Thomas began his career in 1899; Joe Nathan was still active as of 2013)

well, we were filling up pretty quickly but have now hit a lag. anyone have concerns over this theme?
I've got no concerns.

I was bored and built a second connection. I'll jump in with a second team if there's interest (and no objection).
1/15/2014 12:06 PM
ok, so 14 in or 15 with reddtrain taking a 2nd team
1/16/2014 12:30 PM
My 2nd team: Denny Lyons to Neftali Feliz
Denny Lyons played with Mike Smith (listed in the database as Elmer Smith) on the 1894 Pirates.
Mike/Elmer Smith played with Honus Wagner on the 1901 Pirates.
Honus Wagner played with Dazzy Vance on the 1915 Pirates.
Dazzy Vance played with Dutch Leonard on the 1935 Dodgers.
Dutch Leonard played with Robin Roberts on the 1948 Phillies.
Robin Roberts played with Rusty Staub on the 1966 Astros.
Rusty Staub played with Dwight Gooden on the 1985 Mets
Dwight Gooden played with Russell Branyan on the 1999 Indians.
Russell Branyan played with Mike Adams on the 2005 Brewers.
Mike Adams played with Neftali Feliz on the 2011 Rangers.

(Note: How did I not know there were 2 Dutch Leonards?)

I'll join for sure, but I have to do some research before I list my connections.  So put me down for TBD.

Sophiegiants, I think specsmann already used kershaw.
1/18/2014 11:34 PM
Combo players (in my case King and Kershaw) are allowed to appear in other people's combos, but no one else is allowed to have the same exact pair of combo players (e.g., in addition to specsman, alston also has Kershaw).
1/18/2014 11:45 PM
Oh.
1/21/2014 12:46 PM
it's regrettable that a few people have chosen the same player for different combos, but since there's so much flexibility in crafting the connection for a combo I didn't see the point in making those players individually exclusive. maybe next time. I also see a lot of Minnie Minoso andd Goose Gossage in the connections. Feel free to rehit the Oracle button, or use the exclude feature to avoid using them. If you want to tweak, just repost your results.

HUGH DUFFY to YADIER MOLINA:

Hugh Duffy with Bobby Lowe          Boston Beaneaters 1898
Bobby Lowe with Ty Cobb               Detroit Tigers 1907
Ty Cobb with Heinie Manush          Detroit Tigers 1923
Heinie Manush with Bob Elliott          Pittsburgh 1939
Bob Elliott with Hoyt Wilhelm          NY Giants 1952
Hoyt Wilhelm with Darrell Evans       Atlanta Braves 1971
Darrell Evans with John Smoltz      Atlanta Braves 1989
John Smoltz with Yadier Molina      St. Louis Cardinals 2009

I had to retype, because I could not get the baseball-reference.com copy to cut and paste here.

As far as I can tell so far,  the only players on my list that are also on others are Wilhelm, Smoltz and Cobb.
