Smile Create A Team Contest

Hey guys. I haven't had a giveaway for a while, so I figured now would be a nice time to do one. This contest is to create your team with your favorite players. It could be from the past, or current players. Thanks to Raydawg24 for letting me use this idea. Here's my team, for example.

Team: White Sox

SP: Tom Seaver
SP: Mark Buehrle
SP: Chris Sale
SP: Billy Pierce
SP: Ted Lyons
SP: Ed Walsh

Bullpen:
Matt Thornton

Closer:
Bobby Thigpen

DH: Jim Thome
C: A.J. Pierzynski
1B: Paul Konerko
2B: Luis Aparicio (He plays shortstop but I wanted to include him)
SS: Luke Appling
3B: David Wright
LF: Tim Raines
CF: Shoeless Joe Jackson
RF: Minnie Minoso


I'll random the entries, and the winner will get this. The contest will end in a week or so.


I know it's not much, but it is something. Thanks.
