2009 All-Star PreGame suggestion

In 2008, we saw the greatest collection of living HOF'ers at Yankee Stadium.  It was a special moment, and really, it'll be hard to top that.

However, I think I've got one better.

Instead of having the greatest collection of living HOF'ers at Busch Stadium, let's have the greatest collection of living Cardinals at Busch Stadium.

 

They can have them lineup at their positions as follows:

1B
Orlando Cepeda
Keith Hernandez
Mark McGwire
Albert Pujols

2B
Red Scheondiest

SS
Ozzie Smith
Edgar Renteria

3B
Mike Shannon
Scott Rolen

LF
Lou Brock

CF
Willie McGee
Jim Edmonds

Then the fun begins.  They bring out the long line of talented catchers the Cardinals have had over the years.

C
Tim McCarver
Ted Simmons

Mike Matheny

Joe Torre

Next, they bring out the litany of elite pitchers the Cardinals have had.

Pitcher
Bob Gibson
Chris Carpenter
Bob Forsch
Matt Morris

We get to a truly special moment with this 'who's who' of closers.
Closers
Al Hrbosky
Bruce Sutter
Lee Smith
Dennis Eckersley
Jason Isringhausen


And finally, they bring out Stan the Man in a red convertible and drive him around the ballpark.
