All Time MLB Team Past & Present

This past weekend a few friends and I started to chat about baseball players while we watched the Perfect Game and the Yankee vs. Red Sox game. We came to the conclusion that you should split the group up into players you have seen play(being TV or in person) and players before your time. So I decided to let you guys see it and wouldn't mind your thoughts.

 3 OFs: Ken Griffey Jr., Ichiro Susuki, Vlad Guerrero
3B: Chipper Jones
SS: Derek Jeter
2B: Dustin Pedoria
1B: Albert Pujols
C: Pudge Rodriguez
DH: Matt Kemp

 5 Starting Pitchers( no specific order): Pedro Martinez Randy Johnson Greg Maddux Roy Halladay Mike Mussina
 Relief Pitcher: Mariano Rivera (G.O.A.T)

 So right off the bat I was looking for people to get on base such Ichiro and Jeter. My 3-6 hitters would have ton of power betwwen Big Al and KGJr and Vlad. Chipper and Pedoria are specifically to get those power hitters back into the dugout with hits. Pudge is there specifically for defensive purposes. Matt Kemp is your do everything guy. He can hit anywhere in the lineup. The pitchers only task is to get through 8 innings and give the ball to Mo. Pedro is my first starter with Maddux my 2nd, Big Unit my 3rd, Doc the 4th and Mussina is the fifth.

 Before My Time:
 3 OFs: Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron
3B: Mike Schmidt
SS: Ozzie Smith
2B: Joe Morgan
 1B: Lou Gehrig
 C: Yogi Berra
 DH: Ted Williams

5 Starting Pitchers( no specific order): Sandy Koufax Nolan Ryan Tom Seaver Bob Gibson Dwight Gooden
 Relief Pitcher: Rollie Fingers

 Willie Mays and Ozzie Smith take turns leading off and are either 1 or 2 in hitting order. Lou is my 3rd hitter before Ruth as the 4th and Hank 5th. Ted is after with Morgan and Schmidt right after. Yogi is last because "if there is fork in the road, take it." Pitchers will be told to strikeout opposition so my average defense can look good. Sandy to Seaver to Ryan to Gibson to Gooden. Rollie comes in for emergencies only.
