Ty Cobb... Hands down in my book... if he wasn't such a jerk; I think history would remember him a little better...

Nice shout-out to Speaker, Coug..

CF is a position where Offense and Defense are at a premium. The all time best at this position have to be a good mix of both. HAving said that here is my Top 5

  1. Willie Mays - Giants, Mets
  2. Mickey Mantle - Yankees
  3. Ty Cobb - Tigers, A's
  4. Ken Griffey Jr. - Mariners, Reds, White Sox
  5. Tris Speaker - Red Sox, Indians, Senators, A's

HM list: Joe DiMaggio, Al Simmons, Larry Doby, Duke Snider, Kirby Puckett, Hack Wilson. Jim Edmonds, Torii Hunter, Grady Sizemore, Andruw Jones (if he can regain some of his former performance...), Carlos Beltran, and Jacoby Ellsbury  may merit some future consideration as well.

My vote goes to Willie Mays.  Mantle would be second with Cobb third.

Devon White covered as much ground as anyone I've seen. He couldn't hit much though. Chalk up another one for Willie Mays.

I'm gonna have to go with Willie Mays. He just did it all, in the field and at the plate. Man could he cover some ground out there. DiMaggio, Mantle and Cobb all warrent serious consideration but I still like Mays,

Great blog Clutch!!

Willie Mays

i guess when you think of Centerfielders either Willie Mays or Ty Cobb comes to mind, but i always say Willie first so he gets my vote for this one.

it just isn't fair if i don't list some others that deserve a little recognition:

Dale Murphy, Mickey Mantle, Joe Dimaggio,Duke Snider, Oscar Charleston, Tris Speaker, Robin Yount, Ken Griffey Jr and last but not least Kirby Puckett, who would've had even better stats if his career wasn't shortened by glaucoma.

Like the team so far. My vote goes to Willie Mayes, who else should get it?

Also, i have a question/2 questions

For pitching, are we going to have a whole rotation and a bullpen or what? And are we going to have a bench (like possible Stan Matsui or A-Rod or whoever didnt get picked for C-RF)?
