C- Joe Mauer(MIN)

1B- Albert Pujols(STL)

2B- Chase Utley (PHI)

SS- Jose Reyes (NYM)

3B- Alex Rodriguez (NYY)

OF- Barry Bonds (SF)

OF- Carlos Beltran (NYM)

OF- Manny Ramirez (BOS)

DH- Jim Thome (CWS)

SP- Johan Santana (MIN)

SP- Jake Peavy (SD)

SP- Curt Schilling (BOS)

Closer- Jonathan Papelbon (BOS)

I don't agree on Bonds, all he can do is hit the long ball. There are better all around players then Bonds right now in the outfield positions.

Hard to argue with most of that lineup.

At SS, while Reyes is a fine choice, I would give an edge to Jimmy Rollins and Miguel Tejada. Tough call, though. You could probably make a case for all three.

In the OF, you could make a case for a lot of guys. Vlad Guerrero, Ichiro Suzuki, Alfonso Soriano...

Right now, I'd probably take Vlad over Bonds in your lineup.

And I'd probably go with Ortiz over Thome at DH.

And if Alex Rodriguez weren't on such a tear, Miguel Cabrera would be a good choice at 3B...but I can't make a case against A-Rod right now.

Lineup is very good.

A few changes I'd make.

Ichiro intead of Bonds. No better lead off hitter in the game.

Ivan Rodriguez for a catcher.

Drop schilling and I'd take Roy Hallady or Chris Carpenter, Oswalt, Clemens and maybe even Liriano.

"I don't agree on Bonds, all he can do is hit the long ball. There are better all around players then Bonds right now in the outfield positions."

Better check your data if you think he only hits the long ball. Substance assisted? Of course, but Bonds hits period, and he has his entire career. .300 career, approaching 3000 hits, 2000 RBIs. 43 years old, probaby not on roids now, and pitchers still fear him.

Great lineup overall, but your OF is very weak on defense. Manny and Bonds are not the best OF in the game today. Thome is good, but Ortiz is my DH. IMO. Schilling may not be a top ten pitcher today.

He may not be a top ten pitcher but if it were a game 7 I would want him out there. The OF "D" is weak but I like Manny just for being Manny. I think Bonds used to be a 40/40 guy back in the day. If I were to go for "D" in the OF I would put Hunter(MIN),A. Jones(ATL), and maybe Vlad(ANA).

Sorry to say, but I think the Iowa boys got it nailed.

one of the Iowa boys said Ivan as the catcher......i love Ivan but he is not the overall player he once was...still a dominant d but Mauer is almost as good if not better when it comes to protecting the plate itself and Joe is a better hitter.....Ivan would definatly be my back-up catcher though......The outfield can hit the ball but so can the rest of the line-up......would definatly have Vlad over Manny both can hit the snot out of the ball but Vlad has one of the strongest arms in baseball!!!

Absolutely agree with Ozzie. As I stated at length on other threads, I believe Mauer needs a few more seasons to prove he is a better "All Time" career catcher. But best in the game today? It isn't even arguable. That goes to Joe. Ivan may have a bit more power. I can't think of any other area he might be a little better currently.

And Vlad is probably the best OF many people have never heard of. Underated for sure.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
