Source is Baseball Reference dWAR for all positions except 1B, which is based on RField (see the Comments for my explanation). / Outfield is treated as a single position. / Players are assigned to the position where they played the most games. / NOTE: Asterisks (*) mark instances where the league leader in dWAR (or RField for 1B) does not make the team due to what I call the Jay Buhner Rule. This Rule is to leave off a player if the evidence suggests his performance was a small sample fluke (see the Comments for my explanation). I use this three times, and all three instances are explained in the Comments.
