I'd take the best catcher available to handle the staff: Pudge Rodriguez.
Derek Jeter -- for his offense, defense and leadership.
I'd start with a catcher -- Johnny Bench -- and pick Willie Mays second.
Rose (past) and Pedroia (present)
Mike Trout or Troy Tulowitzki -- tough choice
Hank Aaron, my former teammate of six years, was the best.
Mays, because he's a five-tool player and plays great defense in center field.
Rose; he's Shane Victorino with 200 hits and 100 runs and .300 average every year.
Played against, probably Barry Bonds. When he was younger, he just killed us.
Cal Ripken Jr. You knew he would be in the lineup every day, play his very important position on the field at the highest level, hit in the middle of the lineup, produce runs and make everyone around him better.
Jeter -- a pro on and off the field.
Being a Yankee fan as a kid, Mantle and Joe DiMaggio.
