There should be baseball now. However conditions prevent it. This sucks. At least we can have some baseball conversation, How about your all time favorite team by position. Not necessarily the best, just the ones you are/were a fan of. Not meaningful, but fun to think about. 

Mine (second place):

RHP: Seaver (Dick Selma)

LHP: Koosman (Ron Locke)

Closer: Orosco (John Franco)

CA: Grote (Gary C.)

1B: Keith (Kranepool)

2B: Ron Hunt (Ken Boswell)

SS: Ozzie Smith (Amed Rosario)

3B: Brooks Robinson (Kevin Collins)

LF:  Cleon Jones (McReynolds)

CF: Willie Mays (Agee) 

RF: Ron Swoboda (Strawberry) 

Manager: Davey Johnson (Hodges)

good lists.

I like the fact that the best guitarist to come out of pro sports is on a couple of lists

I also appreciate the Yankee fans listing Mets such as Torre, Randolf, Henderson and Cone, etc. Nice tribute to … say what? they played for Yanks too? oh … nevermind
