Let's begin with a dream: You're face-to-face with the Devil. He looks like Paul Giamatti. I don't know why he looks like Paul Giamatti. I do know that people often say that I look like Paul Giamatti, and that he should play me in the movie. I suspect that this comparison would not please Paul Giamatti. I'm good with it, though. I like Paul Giamatti.
Anyway, the Paul Giamatti devil has an offer for you. He has a baseball team. It's probably the 2018 New York Yankees. He says that if you can put together a team of players that defeats his Giamatti Devils in a best-of-21-game series, you'll get something really good, like 100 wishes, or Hamilton tickets, or awesome parking spaces for the rest of your life, or whatever it is that you want. You know what happens if your team loses.
There are no catches, no traps, no tricks when it comes to your player choices. You absolutely can take anyone you want in baseball history, and you'll get the very best version of that player. You want 1921 Babe Ruth, you get 1921 Babe Ruth. You want Satchel Paige in his prime, you get Satchel Paige in his prime. You want a fully loaded Barry Bonds, you get a fully loaded Barry Bonds.
You might have a different view of PED use if your SOUL is on the line.
