Default All time team line up? Trout??🙀

Growing up in the 80's i never got to see players like mantle, arron & mays play live but i did get to see guys like griffey, bonds and piazza.

This news generation getting to see trout and harper.... got to love baseball.

A few more seasons and i may need to adjust my thoughts on my "all time team line up"

1- Cobb - cf
2- wagner - ss
3- ruth -rf
4- gherig - 1b
5- williams - lf
6- piazza - c
7- chipper jones - 3b
8- hornsby - 2b

Can Trout replace cobb?? 🙀

Bench, not Piazza.
Schmidt and Brett over Chipper Jones.

Co-sign on Peter's suggestions.

Trout is the greatest young player ever, but he still needs to be a great middle-aged and old player before he replaces Cobb. He could manage it, but if he manages it, it will be quite a while before he pulls it off.

Look at Pujols. His career numbers are still very impressive, but at age 30 he was on track to be one of the few best players ever, and his last 5 or 6 years have been dramatically less productive. You just don't know.

Not that sick. Baseball reference ranks Jones 6th. Much of that must be adjustments for era because his raw numbers would suggest a higher ranking.

I'd cheat a little .... Mays needs to be in here

1. Cobb (CF)
2. Mays (RF)
3. Ruth (DH, or P if no DH)
4. Williams (LF)
5. Gehrig (1B)
6. Hornsby (2B)
7. Wagner (SS)
8. Schmidt (3B)
9. Bench (C)

P - Walter Johnson (or Ruth if the pitcher has to hit)

Trout has had an amazing first 7 years, but to "replace Cobb" Trout would have to continue at this pace for another 13-14 years.

My all-time lineup is going to look a little different, but it's my lineup, so screw it!

1. Joe Morgan, 2B (left)
2. Robin Yount, SS (right)
3. Ted Williams, LF (left)
4. Willie Mays, CF (right)
5. Babe Ruth, P (left)
6. Roberto Clemente, RF (right)
7. Lou Gehrig, 1B (left)
8. Mike Schmidt, 3B (right)
9. Johnny Bench, C (right)

This lineup would be a nightmare to pitch against. While I know that there are better choices (Wagner over Yount, Hornsby over Morgan), I wanted to do something a little different, and have it mix pre-war and modern players together. This is a team I'd love to see, and the drop off from Wagner to Yount in his prime (and Hornsby to Morgan) isn't as great as you might think when their total games are considered.

The top of the order has some great speed and power. Morgan was a walking machine, and Robin Yount was a dead contact hitter. He can hit the ball to any field with power, and he's an extra base machine. Williams in the three spot opens up all kinds of hit-and-run options. A heart of the order with Ted Williams, Willie Mays and Babe Ruth just would be unfair. The bottom four in the lineup are no slouches, either, with five batting titles and eight MVPs between Clemente, Gehrig, Schmidt and Bench.

My main focus was putting together a team with power, speed, and great hitting ability, as well as exceptional defense. The lineup is a strong mix of right and left handed batters. Mays speed and range in center would help cover for one of the team's defensive liabilities in Ted Williams. Clemente and Mays give the outfield two exceptional defenders with great arms, and Clemente backing up Gehrig means that hitters won't dare try for extra bases on hits that get past the Iron Horse. The rest of the infield-Schmidt, Yount and Morgan, are outstanding defensively; range and strong arms on all.

You can't take Clemente over Aaron in right. No comparison. I'd take Frank Robinson over Clemente. Or Musial, Cobb or Mantle out of position.

Sure I can. Remember, I said that the team I put forth wasn't necessarily the best team possible. It's the team I'd like to see play together, the nine guys that would be most enjoyable to me. I love Aaron, and if I were only considering the best at each position, he'd be in the final cut down. But Clemente and Yount are my favorite two players ever, so they get the nod. Yount is one of the top three or four shortstops to ever play the game, but nobody in their right mind would put him ahead of Hans, not even the biggest Brewers fan out there.

If I'm just putting together a team that's the greatest at each position, it would look something like this:

LF Williams, Musial or Barry Bonds
CF Mays or Cobb
RF Aaron (putting Ruth at pitcher, or DH)
3B Schmidt, Brett or Mathews
SS Wagner
2B Hornsby, or, if Raja's in a pissy mood, Eddie Collins
1B Gehrig
C Bench

But that's so boring. That same lineup has been spit out in every "all-time lineup" discussion for the past ten years.
