Canadian Dream Team

It was tough finding middle infielders for this Canadian Dream team. I would have liked to have included Stubby Clapp, but he only played one season in the major leagues. We could use him as a manager. Below would be the Canadian Dream team. These are players born in Canada who played in the major leagues.

Starting lineup

Matt Stairs LF
Larry Walker RF
Joey Votto 1B
Justin Morneau DH
Jason Bay CF
Vladimir Guerrero 3B
Russel Martin C
Pete Orr 2B
Dave McKay SS

Bench

George Kottaras (C), Brett Lawrie (Utl), Pete Ward (Utl), Corey Koskie (3B), George Selkirk (OF), Tyler O’Niel (OF)

Starting Pitchers

Ferguson Jenkins, Ryan Dempster, Kirk McCaskill, Mike Soroka, James Paxton

Bullpen

John Hiller, Eric Gagne, John Axford, Claude Raymond, Reggie Cleveland, Paul Quantrill

The team is really lacking up the middle, especially at short and second. Even behind the plate and in centerfield are players that play just barely above average, not really enough to establish a dream team. Fergie Jenkins is the only Hall of Famer in the rotation and the bullpen lacks a closer. This team would not win many games when placed against other Dream teams.
