    The manager is clearly Whitey Herzog. Although there are so many Whiteys, we should either ban them or make them a team of their own.

    Can we put Black Jack McDowell in the bullpen?

    There's another color you guys are missing that would give you a good pitcher and a better center fielder...

    Josh Gibson would be the catcher. His nickname was The Black Babe Ruth

    No Pete Rose? Al Oliver would be a nice fit in the OF too.

    C - Mickey "Black Mike" Cochrane never heard the nickname, but I read it on the internet, so it must be true

    Only missing a closer...Valverde may be tenuous but verde means green in both Italian and Spanish.

    It looks like we've completed the second team. Anyone want to suggest a theme for the next one?

    Wasn't around for Jim Palmer, so here's hoping the BBRef nickname holds water

    I know this version is over, but Duke "The Silver Fox" Snider would be a better choice than Eric Davis. Put Speaker in CF and Snider at DH.

    No poor choices on there but I'm surprised Zack Wheat wasn't on the team.
