2005 A's sim team wins world series

Forgive me ahead of time if this diary is off topic.  

I freely admit that I am a baseball nerd and I play sim baseball at a sim site (whatifsports).  The game is based on a statistical simulation based upon real data from real player seasons.  You play in leagues against 23 other owners.  Each player is assigned a salery based upon how good a season they had in a given year (the 2000 Giambi costs a lot while the 03 hatteberg is cheap).
I play A's teams and A's teams only.
I recently played in a league that dictated rosters based upon who is on a team's current 40 man roster plus a little bit of help.  You could bring back 7 players from the franchises past.  

Well, the 2005 Athletics won the division (with only 85 wins) and I guided them to a championship.  
Here are some numbers:

Mike Norris:
3.37 13-8 264.1 ip
Steve Mccatty:
3.63 12-14 255.2 ip
Mike Moore:
3.45 13-13 235 ip
eck:
1.95 47 saves

Durazo:
.277    .329    .450 100RBI
Kendall:
.271    .357    .382    96runs
Kotsay:
.269    .326    .402
Canseco:
.265    .329    .488    35 homers and 121 RBI
Rickey:
.251    .335    .335    120 steals and 113 runs
Ginter:
.248    .353    .424   
Chavez:
.240    .343    .424    24 homers
Crosby:
.205    .286    .360

The numbers tend to be low for most players because everybody can draft near all star lineups.
Chavez went:
.327    .471    .545   
in the postseason.  

yeah, I am a baseball nerd.
The series went 7 games against the phillies. Game 7 was a 2-1 thriller in 12.
