December 16 – No Red Sox Birthdays so here’s my All-Time Red Sox Team!

December 16th is one of the few days of the year on which no former or current member of the Red Sox all-time roster celebrates a birthday. So instead of my normal Beantown Baseball Birthday celebration post, I thought I’d share with you my picks for the All-Time best Boston Red Sox team. Here goes.

Starting Lineup                           Backups

C   Carlton Fisk                               Jason Varitek

1B Jimmie Foxx                             Mo Vaughn

2B Bobby Doerr                              Dustin Pedroia

3B Wade Boggs                              Rico Petrocelli

SS Nomar Garciaparra                 Johnny Pesky

OF Ted Wiiliams                           Dwight Evans

OF Carl Yastrzemski                    Harry Hooper

OF Jim Rice                                    Tris Speaker

DH David Ortiz                              Manny Ramirez

SP Cy Young                                   Mel Parnell

SP Roger Clemens                        Babe Ruth

SP Pedro Martinez                       Joe Dobson

SP Luis Tiant                                 Lefty Grove

CL Jonathan Papelbon              Bob Stanley

CL Dick Radatz                            Ellis Kinder

I believe Dom DiMaggio belongs on this team as well and would have no objection making him one of the two DHs and removing Manny.

So do you agree or disagree with my picks?
