FanPost Friday: Create an all-former Rays team

Who would you bring back?

The Rays, in spite of their relatively short history, have had an incredible amount of talent take the field at the Trop. Cy Young winners and All-Stars, future Hall of Famers. You name it, the Rays have had them on a squad (and have some of them on the team as we speak).

One of my favorite things to do is to imagine a dream team. An all-Rays team made up of the best of the best. And this week, I want you guys to do the same thing.

There are two ways you can go about doing this. The first, is to take any former Rays from all time. So your team could consist of the likes of Carl Crawford, Carlos Pena, and Fred McGriff. The OTHER option, and the one I think is slightly more challenging, is to make a whole team of only former Rays who are still active.

Whichever way you choose to go about it, pick one player for each position. I’m being generous this year and allowing FIVE starting pitchers, but still only one reliever. So choose wisely.
