I'm Changing All My Strings...

Greg Maddux, pitcher for the Chicago Cubs, scored his 3,000th strikeout in his major league career last night is a loss to the San Fransisco Giants.

3,000 is an impressive number and Maddux has had quite an impressive career. He's such a strong starter and he's been quite the pest for the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League first with the Atlanta Braves and currently with the Chicago Cubs. I guess he's worth the $9 million he's earning this year. It's just too bad that he had to get his 3,000th strikeout in a game he lost.

All this baseball talk has made me want to dream up a fantasy team. Retired and current players alike can be allowed with the understanding that they will be playing on my team in their physical and athletic prime.

Starting Pitcher: Nolan Ryan
Starting Catcher: Carlton (Pudge) Fisk
Starting 1st base: Albert Pujols
Starting 2nd base: Ryne (Rhino) Sandburg
Starting 3rd base: Alex Rodriguez
Starting Shortstop: Ozzie (The Wizard) Smith
Starting Left Field: Barry Bonds
Starting Center Field: Willie (Say Hey) Mays
Starting Right Field: (Hammerin')Hank Aaron
Closing Pitcher: Rob Nen

They would be an un-beatable squad.
