Favorite baseball line-up

In honor of a new baseball season, I am going to post a frivilous blog. I am a moderate baseball fan, but the older I get the more I appreciate the game’s slower pace.  My earliest memories of baseball start in the early 1980’s.  If I was putting a team together of players I remember, this would be my team:

imagesC – Pudge Rodriguez
1B – George Brett
2B – Ryne Sandburg
SS – Derek Jeter
3B – Mike Schmidt
RF – Bo Jackson
CF –  Mike Trout
LF – Kirk Gibson

White Sox Rangers Baseball FightStarting Pitchers
Nolan Ryan
Greg Maddux
Justin Verlander
Jack Morris
Andy Pettit
Closer – Mariano Rivera (of course)
