I was expecting a more interesting list, but you are right it is kind of blah.

PA between 100 and 300 and OPS+ yields 5 teams with 3 players from 1922 or before and the 1984 NL Philadelphia Phillies (Sixto Lezcano / Tim Corcoran / Jeff Stone)

There are a slew of teams with 2 players.

Lowering the minimum to 75 lets in some more modern teams with 3
2006 NL Washington Nationals Daryle Ward / Ryan Church / Alex Escobar
1996 AL Cleveland Indians Jeromy Burnitz / Brian Giles / Kevin Seitzer
1984 NL Philadelphia Phillies Sixto Lezcano / Tim Corcoran / Jeff Stone
1973 AL Texas Rangers Bill Sudakis / Tom Grieve / Bill Madlock
1953 AL New York Yankees Don Bollweg / Bill Renna / Andy Carey
as well as some more preWWII teams

On the 77 Yankees, Cliff Johnson had 168 PA had 27,18,5, and 4 PA respectivly.

As for the 75 Red Sox, I never heard of Kim Andrew and Andy Merchant; not a suprise since as Andrew's career spanned 2 games, while Merchant played a single game in 1975, and had a grand total of 3 in his career.

I realize Steve's interest don't parallel mine, but I think if you lowered the qualifying OPS to 130 or so, and made sure eveyone had at least 75 or 100 PA

A great bench year may help create a pennant winner. Walt Judnich had an ob% of .411 in 274 plate appearances for the 1948 Cleveland Indians.

Gates Brown's OPS+ for the 1968 Tigers was 234, in a pitcher's year!
