    As to the Mets... forget the rules of this little game; who's the best position player in Mets history, period? Piazza is more of a Dodger. Who's next? Daryll? Howard Johnson?
    Off the top of my head I'd say Bud Harrelson, but after checking...bingo, its Kranepool and by a bunch!

      He had 9 ABs with the Mets in '65, so that takes him out of the running.

        The DiamondBacks don't have any franchise players because there is only 2 left since the 2001 ws victory. And it is Craig Counsell and Louis Gonzalez; two veterans who have played for different teams. Of course, unless you count rookies that can't play worth a lick .

          You could make a team out of career Giants:

          Bill Terry
          Mel Ott
          Mike Tiernan
          Ross Youngs
          Travis Jackson
          Jim Davenport
          Jo Jo Moore

          and on the mound:

          Jeff Tesreau
          Carl Hubbell
          Hal Schumacher

          and in relief:

          Ace Adams
          Scott Garrelts

          and a backup who'd have to start since I only put up seven players:
          Robby Thompson

          That was fun. Maybe I'll do another team. Any suggestions?

            I believe it was Terry Turner. Under the rules of the question, I would probably go with either Feller or Lemon.

              Not a bad team. How do you think it would fair against this team:

              C: Bill Dickey
              1B: Don Mattingly
              2B: Bobby Richardson
              SS: Derek Jeter
              3B: Gil McDougald
              LF: Bernie Williams
              CF: Joe DiMaggio
              RF: Mickey Mantle
              DH: Lou Gehrig

              Bench: Thurman Munson, Phil Rizzuto, Frank Crosetti, Tommy Henrich, Roy White

              SP1: Whitey Ford
              SP2: Ron Guidry
              SP3: Mel Stottlemyre
              SP4: Spud Chandler

              CL: Mariano Rivera

                What about the MArlisn. How many franchise players ar5e there?

                    The Reds:
                    C-Bench
                    1B-Long John Reilly
                    2B-Bid McPhee
                    SS-Larkin
                    3B-yipes!
                    LF-Adam Dunn
                    CF-Bug Holliday
                    RF-Austin Kearns
                    Bench-they don't have one

                    Pitchers-Mario Soto

                    Despite the longer history, the Reds can't come close to a decent team. Throw out the old American Association Reds, and there is hardly onyone past Bench and Larkin.

                      Yeah, them Yankees look pretty tough. try doing the Red Sox, though, Ted Williams, Yaz, Bobby Doerr, Rico, the little Professor, Varitek, Gator Greenwell, Trot Nixon and a whole lotta nothing.

                      Rube Foster, Ray Collins, Tex Hughson, Mel Parnell, Tom Brewer, and Bob Stanley is one of the least inspiring pitching staffs I can imagine for a franchise.

                      and that's the best they got.

                        Red Sox would field a pretty good offensive team. You'd have to throw Jim Rice in there as well.

                            Sorry, after I'd put in Rico P. I read back over it and read Rice, so I didn't put him in. My bad.

                            The White Sox have Luke Appling, Frank Thomas, Buck Weaver, Happy Felsch, Ted Lyons, Johnny Mostil (who saved Lyons' no hitter with a stupendous catch in the first inning), Red Faber, Mark Buehrle, John Garland, and of course Monty Stratton (as played by Jimmy Stewart). Roy Patterson and Joe Benz weren't bad either.

                            I guess you could add Jim Scott as a pitcher if you need more. Does Reb Russell count? He pitched only for the Sox, but after his arm blew out he came back a few years later as a Pirate right fielder- sort of Lefty O'Doul style.

                            They got the pitching, but after Thomas and Appling, the hitting really stinks.

                              No need to apologize, I do stuff like that all the time. For instance, I originally had Charlie Keller as the DH on my all-time Yankee team, even though I knew he didn't play his whole career with the Yankees. So I made a nice little edit and no one is the wiser.

                                What's wrong with Rico he had a pretty good career at ss and 3rd base for the Red sox for 13 years, plus he comes from my alma mater Sheepshead High school in Brooklyn.
