BEST ALL TIME MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL PLAYERS
 
If you had to pick two teams to be your favorite All Time Greatest Players at each position, who would you pick?

You can pick two teams, the players can be from any era and they can also be players that had their careers cut short by injuries, but let's say they played five or more years.

You can also pick a closer (pitcher) and a "DH" if you wish too.

Remember that they can be from any era and also from any league (National, American, or the Old Negro Leagues).

You can pick three pitchers for each team also and you also have to pick a Manager for each team.

Remember, one will be your #1 team and the other will be your #2 team.

Good luck and think about it as there are a lot of choices to make and don't forget the players that played in the Old Negro Leagues as they were some great players at that time and many were as good or better than the players in the AL and NL.

I see some very excellent choices made out there so far. I know it is a tough one to do, but think about it a little while as there are so many great players that played this wonderful game. Good luck.

Ozzie Smith over Honus??? Hell, even Banks over Honus is a stretch.

Also Mays is the best player of all time

Good call on Josh Gibson, I forgot about him. But Jeter over Wagner, Banks, Smith, Cronin etc. seems like a mistake
