The Greatest Team of your Lifetime

Rules are simple. Assemble the best team you can from any of the players that have played during your lifetime. You can have 9 starters 3 bench and a four man rotation. Think of the players when they were in their prime to avoid arguments over scandals or how they ended their respective careers. I am from 1980 so here's mine.

1B - Mattingly (should be in the HOF)
2B - Roberto Alomar
3B - George Brett
SS - Cal Ripken, Jr.
LF - Barry Bonds (before the steroids issue he is probably the greatest LF of all-time)
CF - Ken Griffey Jr. (all-time Favorite)
RF - Ichiro (if only he played his entire career in the MLB)
C - Pudge
DH - Edgar Martinez

Rotation -Greg Maddux, Pedro Martinez, Steve Carlton, and Roy Halladay.

Relief - Duane Ward
Closer -Dennis Eckersely

Bench - Vladdy, Robin Yount, and Ozzie Smith

Manager - Billy Martin

Haha! Not as old as you might think. There are a lot of others I could have included, but I've done a list like this before, and I always have him and the others on my teams, for example: video games lol. More of a habit than anything.

Well you must be at least 53, since Jackie Robinson last played in 1956.

I don't think Jackie Robinson has played in the last 20 years, so I'm not sure why you have him on your lifetime team.

i'd go with Alomar or Biggio or Kent
