    I'll get my lineup in a bit but technically Yogi played for the Mets. I wish he hadn't but he did.

    THANKS for letting me know, I forgot that he played with them in 1965. I've now replaced him (took him off) with BILL DICKEY (Yankees).

    WizardofOz1982 - Thanks for your post and "team" selections. In your N L selections I can understand, because of their POWER (HR's and RBI's), having Bagwell at 1st and Schmidt at 3rd. However, how can you put Larkin at SS in place of Banks. Larkin's offensive figures are NO WHERE NEAR those of Banks. Also, even though they are very close, Carl Hubbell is slightly better than Bob Gibson. Their main #'s are very close, with Hubbelll just ahead. Hubbell had a W-L record 253-154 and ERA of 2.97 to Gibson's 251-174 2.91. If I could have a rotation of N L ONE TEAM Starters they would definitely be on it, probably as 1 & 2. THANKS for your post on this thread.

    pwaldo - Thanks for your post and "team" selections. I understand,because of offensive #'s why you picked Brett-3B instead of "Brooksie". However, I'd still go with "Brooksie",with Brett as my 3B back-up, because of being the GREATEST Defensive 3B in MLB history (16 consecutive GOLD GLOVES). For pitching Bob Feller was very good, but his W-L record is no where even near that of the "BIG TRAIN". I understand Schmidt (I mentioned that above with "Wiz....". Also, Koufax probably had the best final five years of ANY MLB pitcher in history, but the early part wasn't. When he "retired" he was no where near 200 wins (but he also wasn't near 100 losses). However, if I was putting together an N L rotation of "same team" starters I'd have him along with Hubbell and Gibson. Can you imagine those three together on the same starting rotation ? It would be great. THANKS for your post on this thread.

    Anyone else have STARING A L & N L of "All Time - One Team " position players (1B,2B,3B,SS,C,P, & 3 OF'S) ?

    I chose Larkin over Banks because the majority of Banks' numbers and playing time were at 1B. Larkin played more than twice the innings at SS that Banks did and was a superlative defender as well as just as good offensively as Banks in a different way. Banks had more power and RBIs but in every other offensive category Larkin has the lead in almost two seasons fewer plate appearances. If Banks had primarily been a SS instead of a 1B he's an easy choice.

    Hubbell versus Gibson is an interesting debate but Hubbell vultured about 20 wins as a reliever which is what ultimately made me give Gibson the edge.
