    Not a bad list on the poll. Just spoke with David and told him that Craig Reynolds might've been included for SS and Joe Niekro as one of the SPs. And falling for my own 'gotcha' that I posted earlier, just about everyone forgets about Bob Watson who probably would be the ultimate bench player for this team since he caught and played both 1B and OF.

    I voted for:
    SP - Nolan Ryan (tough choice really)
    RP - Billy Wagner (career numbers with Houston makes this an eacy decision for me)
    1B - Jeff Bagwell (no-brainer)
    2B - Craig Biggio (no-brainer)
    3B - Doug Rader (yes, over Caminiti. The Rooster was a solid glove man at third and had as much power, sans steroids)
    SS - Craig Reynolds (excellent defender, great 2-hole hitter)
    OF - Jimmy Wynn, Jose Cruz and Lance Berkman (never was much of a CedeƱo fan, to be honest)

    It's not my thread, but I'm of the belief that a player should have had a minimum of 3 seasons in Houston before being considered. Again, Randy Johnson and Carlos Beltran shouldn't count on this supposed "all-time" list.

    I think Wynn would belong somewhere on this team. He was a good hitter and had a "toy cannon " for an arm.

    I want the results for the All-Time position by position battle. I have a thread about it in the history forum if you're interested.

    Nor was Randy Johnson.

    Astros Daily put together a panel a while back and asked them to put an all-time Astros team together. The panel included longtime broadcaster Gene Elston (just won Frick Award), Bob Hulsey (for my money, THE source of club history), Greg Lucas (one of the current FSN broadcasters who has covered a lot of Texas baseball), Dr. Bill McCurdy (part of the Texas Baseball Hall of Fame with a Houston baseball history dating back to the old Buffs) and Darrell Pittman (who has logged thousands of hours at Astros Daily).

    Their team came out to be:

    C - Alan Ashby
    1B - Jeff Bagwell
    2B - Craig Biggio
    3B - (tie) Ken Caminiti & Doug Rader
    SS - Dickie Thon
    OF - Starters: Jose Cruz, Cesar Cedeño, Jimmy Wynn ... Reserves: Lance Berkman, Moises Alou
    Rotation: JR Richard, Nolan Ryan, Mike Scott, Larry Dierker, Joe Niekro
    Bullpen: Dave Smith, Billy Wagner, Joe Sambito, Octavio Dotel, Danny Darwin

    I can live with that team except for my intense disfavor for Alou who I would replace with Terry Puhl (who finished 6th in the OF voting).

    Niekro and Darwin are too often overlooked on these teams, as is Bob Watson. Thought for sure there was an old thread here along these same lines, but darned if I can find it.

    What is he doing now? I always thought he was a very clutch hitter. Don't remember much about his defense (catching) though.

    The Cannon is in the outfield, without question, along with Cedeno and Cruz. Dickie Thon gets the node at SS even with his tragically short career. J. R. Richard has my vote as a starter over Oswalt...Again, a tragically shortened career. I like Doug Rader @ third, because most of Cami's great years were with San Diego..Same at 2nd, where I will go with Biggio...Morgan's great years were with Cincy. Because I can't remember an outstanding catcher besides my secondbaseman, I'll go with Ash or maybe John Bateman...I was gonna name Tony "Cheeseburger" Euseibo, but thought better of it.
