Blog Bat Around: all-autograph team
Props to Zippy Zappy for this Blog Bat Around idea: fielding a hypothetical team with your best autographs. To handicap myself (and make it easier), I'm only using my precious 2004 Retired refractors for this exercise.
Outfield of Yaz, Yount, and Gwynn. Carew picking it at 1st. Boggs at the hot corner. Wizard and Ryne up the middle. Bench behind the plate and the Ryan Express on the mound.
Seaver and Bob Gibson anchoring the rotation. Pen consists of Goose, Eck, and Rollie.
I'd probably DH Ripken and use Dale Murphy as a pinch-hitter.
Almost forgot Frank Robinson! Let's make him player-manager.
That's a solid ballclub!
