All Time Team

Sports Illustrated just did another of those all time greatest teams.
http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2006/magazine/10/03/bb.allstar1009/index.html
I propose that I can make a team that will beat it using only players that they left out. Here we go.

Si's Team (I don't know who they intend to start)

Yogi Berra, CATCHER
Johnny Bench, CATCHER
Lou Gehrig, FIRST BASE
Stan Musial, FIRST BASE
Jackie Robinson, SECOND BASE
Rogers Hornsby, SECOND BASE
Honus Wagner, SHORTSTOP
Alex Rodriguez, SHORTSTOP
Mike Schmidt, THIRD BASE
Joe DiMaggio, OUTFIELD
Ted Williams, OUTFIELD
Ty Cobb, OUTFIELD
Babe Ruth, OUTFIELD
Willie Mays, OUTFIELD  
Mickey Mantle, OUTFIELD
Hank Aaron, OUTFIELD
Lefty Grove, PITCHER
Roger Clemens, PITCHER
Cy Young, PITCHER
Christy Mathewson, PITCHER
Sandy Koufax, PITCHER
Walter Johnson, PITCHER
Warren Spahn, PITCHER
Dennis Eckersley, PITCHER
Mariano Rivera, PITCHER

My Team
C Josh Gibson
C Mike Piazza
1B Jimmy Foxx
1B Hank Greenberg
2B Joe Morgan
SS Derek Jeter
SS Barry Larkin
3B Albert Pujols
3B George Brett
OF Barry Bonds
OF Rickey Henderson
OF Ken Griffey Jr
OF Frank Robinson
IF Cal Ripken Jr
IF Ozzie Smith
IF/OF Pete Rose
P Pedro Martinez
P Randy Johnson
P Satchel Paige
P Tom Seaver
P Greg Maddux
P Bob Gibson
P Pete Alexander
P Trevor Hoffman
P Eric Gagne

Obviously the deck is stacked against me here, but I think we can take them. Some points in my favor: I have the greatest second baseman of all time, two possible greatest hitters ever (Bonds and Pujols), two players that might have wiped the floor with their old white boys (Gibson and Paige), the greatest leadoff hitter (Henderson) and much better defense, especially with some late inning replacements.
