I saw this on ESPN, what is your all time All-star team?

You can post two of each if you want.

Pitcher -Randy Johnson/Nolan Ryan

Catcher -Johnny Bench/Gary Carter

First base- Albert Pujols/Lou Gehrig

Second base -Joe Morgan/Bill Mazeroski

Shortstop -Honus Wagner/Ozzie Smith

Third base -Mike Schmidt/George Brett

Right Field -Roberto Clemente/Babe Ruth

Center field -Willie mays/Ken Griffey Jr.

Left field - Willie Stargell/Barry Bonds

I would automatically disquailify Bonds and Pujols from the conversation. Perhaps Griffey too. Sorry Junior, luv ya but you should have hung around with different guys. ;)

I don't think I would have any of those three on my list anyway. Pujols over Jimmy Foxx and Bill Terry? Bonds (and Stargell???) over Ted Williams, Ty Cobb and Hank Aaron? Griffey over Dimaggio and Mantle?

Lots of home cooking here too.

Mazeroski over Rogers Hornsby and Jackie Robinson???

Clemente over Reggie Jackson?

At least you're a little more objective than HDMM will be. He likes to do things from a 'Cleveland perspective'.

I'm sure somehow Jim Thome will make his list...:rolleyes:

Any team that doesn't include Ted Williams and Brooks Robinson won't get my vote.

Nice list, Matt! :up

Feller is in my top five all time starters.

IMO, there's no right or wrong list when it comes to baseball's greats.

The players to choose from is so vast!

Thanks Bill. In reality, I just composed that list as a joke in response to Sandra's previous comment.

The list you compiled is THE list of "All-Time Greats" though.

I've been following baseball since 1975 (I know, I know I'm an old fart! :eek: :D), and the Indians have always seemed to be strong at one position in particular: CF.

I'm going back to the Rick Manning days, to Lofton and now to Grady! :up

Pete Rose somewhere ....

To name just a few for starters, off the top of my head.

Pitchers Pedro Martinez


Pedro from 1998 through about 2003 was just sick!

His 1999 was arguably the greatest season a pitcher EVER had, if you consider the era he pitched in (steroids, juiced balls, smaller ballparks, etc. ,etc.), and the fact he weighed about 160 lbs. soaking wet!

Ed Morgan? Wasn't a big century for the five-spot in Cleveland, huh? :D

Wait...you're claiming Frank Robinson?!?!?

Frankie's my backup. He played in Cleveland from '74-'76.

And yes, the 3rd Base Position hasn't been one of our most glorified spots. On second thought, I nominate Al Rosen to start at 3rd......
Rosen played 10 seasons in the big leagues, all with the Indians, but the four-time All-Star made the most of them. In 1953 he was named AL MVP for hitting .338 and leading the AL with 43 homers and 145 RBI. He missed winning the batting title, and thus the Triple Crown, by .001., to Washington's Mickey Vernon. Rosen hit .300 with 24 homers and 102 RBI in 1954 when the Indians won a then-record 111 games during the regular season only to be swept in the World Series by the New York Giants. He finished with a career batting average of .285 with 192 homers and 717 RBI. Rosen later served as president of the Yankees, Astros and Giants.

Just thought of a few others: Tris Speaker, Earl Avrill and Larry Doby. All played Center too! More on Tris Speaker though....
Speaker, a player-manager who led the Indians to the 1920 World Series championship, may be the best center fielder in team history, but it's not an easy call. Speaker is one of three Hall of Famers to spend the majority of their Indians career in center. Earl Averill and Larry Doby, the first black man to play in the American League, are the others. Then there's Kenny Lofton, the franchise leader with 452 stolen bases. And who knows where Grady Sizemore will rank when his career is done? Speaker, nicknamed the Gray Eagle, had a lifetime .345 batting average with 3,514 hits. He played and managed the Indians for 11 seasons from 1916 through 1926. His .354 batting average is the second in team history next to Joe Jackson's .375. Speaker is the Indians all-time leader in doubles (486) and ranks second in runs (1,079), hits (1,965), triples (108), total bases (2,886), extra base hits (667) and walks (857).

Willie Stargell over Hank Aaron? Please. Sorry homer-boy. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

You know, you always have to turn something fun into a competition. It was suppose to see what everyone's views was, it wasn't suppose to be what the media or even you think it should be. If HD wants to put a all Cleavland team, well that's fine, it's HIS opinion.

If I wanted an all Pittsburgh team, I could of, but I didn't, it was my choice. Maybe you should stop worrying about what everyone else opinions are and worry about yourself.

Ramy or any other mod can you close this thread, the fun of this thread has been taken out of it.
