Recap:

The infield and outfield were very easy selections for this team.

The pitching staff was also chosen with limited difficulty.

This team is littered with active stars. Hanley Ramirez and Miguel Cabrera certainly have many good years ahead of them.

The pitching staff is strong. Dontrelle Willis and Brad Penny have struggled recently but have a chance to get back on track.

After all of these players careers are over, they will compare to some of the other all-time teams.
