How about this as a corollary to the pitchers thread. I've probably spent more time thinking about this than I care to admit, but here goes:

C-Josh Gibson
1b- Stan Musial
2b- Joe Morgan
3b- Mike Schmidt
ss- Honus Wagner
lf- Barry Bonds
cf- Willie Mays
rf-Babe Ruth

I can see going for Gehrig over Musial, but I'll stick with Musial because it gives me representation for every era except the 19th century. Wagner for the deadball era, Ruth in the 20's, Gibson in the 30's and 40's and the Negro leagues, Musial in the 40's and 50's, Mays in the 50's and 60's, and so on. And of course, this is just in my humble opinion.

My line up would be:
1B George Sisler
2ND Rogers Hornsby
SS Honus Wagner
3RD Pie Traynor
C Johnny Bench
CF Ty Cobb
LF Terry O'Doul
RF Babe Ruth
P Walter Johnson
Pitcher for a World Series I would choose Dickey Kerr. He won two World Series games (one shutout)in 1919 for the Sox, while most of his teamates were trying to lose.

My line up is:

My leadoff hitter is the man who has demonstrated the greatest ability for getting on base in the history of baseball, because that is his job: get on base. If he is a stolen base threat, that is a strong plus. He should keep the pitcher distracted since some serious hitters are to follow. This man is John McGraw.

The second batter will be able to hit behind the runner and hit for high average himself. Ideally he should also be a stolen base threat. This man is Cobb.

My third batter may be the best hitter with both average and power important.
My selection for this slot is Ruth.

I do not see my clean up hitter responsible for cleaning up the bases as much as keeping the rally going. Although power is a factor. My no. 4 hitter is Hornsby.

No. 5 is a difficult call, but I need more punch than Jackson offers. I give the nod to Williams.

Then of course, the other lefty slugger, first baseman Gehrig.

Then the bottom of the order, my lighter hitting shortstop and catcher - a couple of righties. Wagner and Bench.

My pitcher is Johnson.
