Building a 25-Man Super Team Using All 2013 ALDS, NLDS Playoff Teams

Kershaw captured the major league E.R.A. title for a third consecutive season.

For a team to get to the postseason, it usually takes the effort of a full 25-man roster and, in most cases, as many as 30-35 players throughout the 162-game regular season. But as you'll probably notice while watching postseason baseball, every one of these teams has at least one or two superstar players that are obviously better at playing baseball than just about everyone else on the planet. 

In total, there are 21 players getting set to compete in a division series that compiled a WAR (wins above replacement player) of at least 5.0. That's an average of about five players on the field per game who performed at an elite level in 2013.

There's so much star power in the playoffs, in fact, that this 25-man Super Team I've put together using only players in the ALDS or NLDS might have actually gone 162-0 if they were an actual team. OK, maybe they wouldn't go undefeated. But I'd bet on at least 142 wins. Regardless, it is a fun roster to view on paper, or in this case, on the computer screen.
