In honor of the rematch of the 1982 World Series that will occur in the 2011 NLCS, here is a stab at the all-time team of players who appeared in the majors for both the Cardinals and the Brewers:
C: Ted Simmons, Darrell Porter, Mike Matheny 1B: Tito Francona 2B: Fernando Vina, Ronnie Belliard 3B: David Bell, Russell Branyan SS: Royce Clayton, Ducky Schofield LF: CF: Jim Edmonds, Jose Cardenal RF: Sixto Lezcano, Bernie Carbo, Tom Brunansky Utility: Mark Sweeney Starting pitchers: Pete Vuckovich, Jerry Reuss, Cal Eldred, Reggie Cleveland, Ray Sadecki Relief pitchers: Ray King, Tony Fossas, Jesse Orosco, Mike DeJean
I limited myself to fairly well-known players even if they didn't play a lot for both the Cardinals and Brewers. I couldn't find anybody to put in left field thought!
Anyway, this isn't exactly a stellar team, although it's pretty deep at C and CF!
