Over 40 Lineup

With the Jamie Moyer/Tom Glavine match-up scheduled for tonight in New York, we were able to come up with a pitching staff of big leaguers 40 or over.

It was a pretty good staff but now we need eight guys behind them on the field.  That’s a little more difficult.  But, here goes:

C We have to pry Todd Pratt out of retirement.  He was in camp with the Yankees in spring training but did not make the opening day roster.  Perhaps he went to the minors but we’re assuming he went home to retirement.

1B Baseball’s elder statesman, Julio Franco, 48 years young.

2B Craig Biggio

SS Omar Vizquel

3B Jeff Conine, sorry, Jeff, but you have played third in your career; back to the hot corner.

OF Moises Alou
Barry Bonds
Steve Finley
Louis Gonzalez
Kenny Lofton
Reggie Sanders
Matt Stairs

All we need now is an ancient PR person for this baseball bunch.

This isn’t actually a comment, but a question (favor?)

Any chance you could find out what kind of sunglasses Jimmy Rollins is wearing this season (the gold lenses?)
