The All-Holy Team

Over on Pete Abraham's blog, the most recent post has commenters talking about the possibility that Yankees' prospect Alexander Pope may one day pitch to Jesus Montero.

That, of course, got me thinking, could we create an All-Holy Team? Well, if we stretch our imagination, not too much, it might look something like this:

SP: Alexander Pope, or Fautino De Los Santos

Catcher: Ryan Church
1B: Jesus Montero
Centerfield: David DeJesus
Leftfield: Matt Holliday
Rightfield: Nelson Cruz (For the non-Spanish speakers, Cruz = Cross)

Now, 2B-SS-3B would involve some imaginative stretching, but we could theoretically have:

2b: Angel Sanchez
Shortstop: Ramon Santiago
3b: Stephen King (I'm not sure King cuts it, but it's the best I can do).

Keep in mind, the All-Holy Team would have a plethora of pitchers, such as John Parrish, for example...

As for the opponents, one would think that Matt Cain might start, and Angel Pagan play in one of the outfield positions...


  1. I'm thinking Angel Pagan doesn't make this team....

  2. Oh, he doesn't, he's the guy batting for the OTHER team!
