The All Rookie Team

Postby spacehamster01 » Wed Aug 09, 2006 3:07 pm

Considering there are so many great rookies out there this year, I thought itd be fun to create a whole team using these rooks. So heres my roster:

Starting Lineup
1. SS - Hanley Ramirez
2. LF - Andre Ethier
3. 3B - Ryan Zimmerman
4. 1B - Prince Fielder
5. 2B - Dan Uggla
6. C - Russel Martin
7. RF - Josh Willingham
8. CF - Melky Cabrera
9. Pitcher

Bench
2B - Josh Barfield
2B/SS - Ian Kinsler
1B - Mike Jacobs
OF - Jason Repko, Carlos Quentin
C - Mike Napoli

Rotation (combined ERA under 3)
1. Francisco Liriano
2. EDIT: Justin Verlander (how did I forget him?)
2. Jered Weaver
4. Josh Johnson
5. Scott Olsen

Bullpen
Cole Hamels
Chad Billingsley
Zach Miner
Joe Saunders
John Maine
John Lester

Setup
Joel Zumaya

Closer
Jonathan Papelbon

Man I would say...thats a REALLY good rookie class. What real MLB teams do you think they could beat?

was thinking about adding him on there but there's sort of a logjam of 2nd baseman rookies. Also I think he needs to play a few more games before getting on the team. Had to put Quentin in there though because there aint many rookie OFs.

Not bad...but I'll take Ronny Paulino as my catcher. Yes, somewhat homerish, but he has stats to back it up.

He has a .314 average (highest rookie C avg. since Piazza) in almost 300 AB's. I know he only has 6 HR's, but I'm sure that will improve. He has thrown out 36% of runners trying to steal which I think is very good. I don't know where you can find Catchers ERA data, but I think he has a good one of those also. He calls a good game and is a good hitter, plus he's only 25. Can't wait to see this guy get better. ;-D

by the end of the season stephen drew and carlos quinten might make it there too. ;-D

heck, you could probably come up with an all-rookie second team and it would be just as good as some of the rookie classes of mlb seasons past. :-?

Hamels should be #2 starter after Verlander. Liriano is hurt...you need to move someone up into the rotation.

Is he still the greatest lefty of all time? Or now that he's injured does he drop below Koufax? ;-7
