    And this also happened ~2 1/2 weeks before Clemens' second 20-K game (on the 18th against the Tigers.)
    They don’t think it be like it is, but it do.

      I strongly concur that Greenwell was a terrific player.

      He is probably less remembered than he should be because of fellow Red Sock left fielders Williams, Yaz, Rice, Manny, and perhaps Duffy Lewis if one's knowledge extends that far back.

      Boston has quite the tradition of fantastic performers stationed in the shadow of the Green Monster.

          That's a more formidable roster than I would have guessed, given the Rangers' less than imposing historical profile.

          Part of the explanation for that: Among the pitchers, most of those guys didn't spend much of their careers, nor had their best seasons, in Texas.

          Lastly, I hate to nitpick, but maybe Kevin Brown ought to be included?

            I had previously compiled a Ranger/Senator team on post #17. A few of these HoF players, Vladimir Guerrero, Harold Baines & Goose Gossage, don't belong. The originator of this project, jpm74, is a Met fan and to his credit, did not include Richie Ashburn, Duke Snider, Warren Spahn or Willie Mays on his team.

            Kevin Brown only had a 108OPS+ a 17.7bWAR & a 5.0bWAA. I agree with SamtheBravesFan omission of him.

              Detroit Tigers:

              C- Bill Freehan
              1B- Hank Greenberg
              2B- Charlie Gehringer
              3B/1B- Miguel Cabrera
              SS- Alan Trammell
              LF- Bobby Veach
              CF- Ty Cobb
              RF- Al Kaline
              SP- Hal Newhouser
              SP- Justin Verlander
              SP- Tommy Bridges
              SP- Dizzy Trout
              SP- Mickey Lolich
              SP- Bill Donovan
              SP- Jim Bunning
              SP- Jack Morris
              RP- Mike Henneman
              RP- John Hiller

              Reserves:

              2B- Lou Whitaker
              RF- Harry Heilmann
              RF/CF- Sam Crawford
              1B- Norm Cash
              CF- Chet Lemon
              C- Lance Parrish
              2B/3B- Dick McAuliffe
              3B- George Kell

              Note: Jack Morris & George Kell were only included because they are HoFers. Frank Lary & Toy Phillips(2B/3B/LF/Rf) would have been included. Mickey Cochrane wasn't included because he didn't play well enough and I felt including him was too much of a stretch.

              MGR- Jim Leyland
              GM- Dave Dombroski

                  True, especially right field.

                    I figured it wasn't against the rules, so I included the Hall of Famers that spent even a little time with them.

                    And yeah, maybe he can be on there instead of Jamie Moyer. I don't really want to squeeze Jeff Russell out.

                        Catfish Hunter was not accidentally omitted, one could include him and exclude Bobby Shantz or include both and drop Gene Tenace.

                          That's pretty much what I did, especially for relievers.

                          I really don't think anyone would mind if you did your own Braves list. I think a few teams have multiple people choosing them.

                            No problem. I'll see if I have a different opinion. I don't think we'll differ on the rotation much!
