Strasburg’s start last night got me wondering, what is your all-time lineup plus rotation? And, although I’m an AL guy, let’s go no DH. I’ll post mine, you post your own and we’ll see how many people put barry bonds in LF to help them win a game with their lives on the line. I didn’t go that far back because I simply don’t believe hitting or pitching was as difficult in 1900 as it is today.
C: Yogi Berra
1B: Albert Pujols
2B: Jeff Kent (Sorry, Jackie)
SS: Alex Rodriguez
3B: Mike Schmidt
LF: Barry Bonds
CF: Willie Mays
RF: Tony Gwynn
SP: Sandy Koufax
SP: Randy Johnson
SP: Roger Clemens
SP: Bob Gibson
SP: Pedro Martinez
CP: Mariano Rivera[/quote]
LF: Bonds - not even close. The only other possibility would be to move a Center Fielder over but I’d still take Bones over Griffey.
3b: Schmidt - I’m drawing blanks so I’ll just take your pick
2b: Kent - Alomar close 2nd (no pun intended)
Pitchers are tough. So many too choose from and so many greats I could easily forget. Hell if I’m going to take anyone I haven’t seen, though.
Lincecomb - It’s early but the guy is so freaking filthy
Strausburg - speaking of early and speaking of filth, after seeing what I saw on Youtube this morning I gotta take him
Closer? Sure, Mariano sounds good.
