Hopefully the message board jinx does not apply to forum posts, but so far it has been an embarrassment of riches:
Jack Graney 56 PA .362 OBP: .412
Chicken Wolf 30 PA .357 OBP .400
And since my regular 2B and leadoff hitter Hub Collins has been hitting under .200 and not getting on base, and I noticed that Wolf plays 2B not greatly inferior to Collins, I have shifted Wolf to 2B for the time being so they are both playing every day.
With two good first basemen, Wally Pipp LH and Dave Foutz (later a good pitcher for whom the SIM does not have stats in the database unfortunately) RH, who I am platooning, I have put Foutz as the back up LF/RF. Defense will suffer somewhat from these moves, so I will have to watch just how badly, but it should generate some offense in an offense-heavy league (at least for these seasons).
