The easiest picks were the infield and Cobb.
The hardest choices were in the outfield because Sam Crawford could have easily been a starter.
The Tigers definitely have one of the best, if not the best, all-time outfields. They also have a great hitter in Crawford off the bench.
Their infield is also top notch. They have Hank Greenberg, Charlie Gehringer, George Kell, and Allan Trammell, who were all great players during their careers.
Their pitching would be their downfall if they had to play other all-time teams. They're not bad; it's just that they aren't as good as some of the other pitching staffs.
