    If you had a chance to choose the nine greatest players of the yankee team and nine gretest red sox players, and five greatest pitchers from each team and one relieverand one closer and they faced each other in a best of seven playoff series who would win. Now this is how it works.

    -choose a player for each position for each team, include one dh
    -choose five starting pitchers for each team, one reliever and one closer
    -theres some players that played for each team, but you can only take one for one team e.g Clemens played for both teams, but you can only choose him once, so you have to choose between him in a red sox uni or a yankees uni.
    -tell me who's going to be mvp
    -tell me how they're going to win the series
    -how many games each team won


    If you have any questions dont be afraid to ask.

    okay, For the Red Sox...

    C: Carlton Fisk
    1B: Jimmie Foxx
    2B: Bobby Doerr
    3B: Wade Boggs
    SS: Nomar Garciaparra
    OF: Ted Williams
    OF: Carl Yastrzemski
    OF: Jim Rice
    DH: David Ortiz

    SP1: Cy Young
    SP2: Joe Wood
    SP3: Pedro Martinez
    SP4: Roger Clemens
    SP5: Luis Tiant
    RP: Jonathan Papelbon

    And the Yankees...

    C: Yogi Berra
    1B: Lou Gehrig
    2B: Phil Rizzuto
    3B: Alex Rodriguez
    SS: Derek Jeter
    OF: Joe Dimaggio
    OF: Babe Ruth
    OF: Mickey Mantle
    DH: Reggie Jackson

    SP1: Jack Chesboro
    SP2: Ron Guidry
    SP3: Lefty Gomez
    SP4: Whitey Ford
    SP5: Red Ruffing
    RP: Mariano Rivera

    Verdict:

    Game 1: Red Sox 3, Yankees 2

    Game 2: Red Sox 4, Yankees 1

    Game 3: Yankees 7, Red Sox 3

    Game 4: Yankees 6, Red Sox 5

    Game 5: Yankees 8, Red Sox 11

    Game 6: Red Sox 0, Yankees 3

    Game 7: Red Sox 5, Yankees 2

    Red Sox win Series, 4 games to 3

    MVP: Joe Wood (2 starts, 2 CG, 3 runs allowed (2 earned) 11 strikeouts, and most important, 2 wins!)

    The Yankees may have the better lineup, but the Red Sox have the better rotation. The Sox were able to hold the Yankees to minimal runs, for most of the Series, while scoring just enough to win the games.

    Red Sox lineup:

    C: Jason Varitek
    1B: Jimmie Foxx
    2B: Bobby Doerr
    3B: Wade Boggs
    SS: Nomar Garciaparra
    OF: Ted Williams
    OF: Carl Yastrzemski
    OF: Jim Rice
    DH: David Ortiz

    SP1: Cy Young
    SP2: Pedro Martinez
    SP3: Lefty Grove
    SP4: Curt Schilling
    SP5: Joe Wood
    RP: Jonathan Papelbon

    Yankees lineup:

    C: Yogi Berra
    1B: Lou Gehrig
    2B: Phil Rizzuto
    3B: Alex Rodriguez
    SS: Derek Jeter
    OF: Joe Dimaggio
    OF: Reggie Jackson
    OF: Mickey Mantle
    DH: Babe Ruth

    SP1: Babe Ruth
    SP2: Roger Clemens
    SP3: Whitey Ford
    SP4: Andy Pettite
    SP5: Lefty Gomez
    RP: Mariano Rivera

    I'll take Varitek over Fisk for his leadership and ability to call a game. Lefty Grove goes into the rotation since he's one of the best pitchers ever, and Rocket goes to the Yankees since that's what he considers himself. Ruth goes to DH so he can also pitch, and Pettite moves into the rotation for the gaudy post-season numbers.

    I think the Sox still end up with the better rotation, but not by as much, and the Yankees bats win it for them in 7.
