    You missed little known Met Brian Buchanan (appeared in two games in
    August of 2004) and not so famous James Buchanan an ineffective one term
    president who preceded Lincoln. Also I think you should have used Hawk
    Taylor against Zachary Taylor makes more sense than Pat Zachry. By that
    logic you could have included J.C. Martin Versus Martin Van Buren.

    Also, reconsider HOJO versus the worst president ever (in my opinion) LBJ. not only could HOJO hit better but I think he would have been a superior president!
