I happen to come across a blog post by Billy Suter of West Virginia Cards. In a post in March he went about the task of putting together a all-Billy team. Which got me thinking that I should do the same. So, without further ado, here is the all-Ernie team.
C- Ernie Lombardi (HOF) - You can't go wrong with the "Schnozz" behind the plate
1st- Justin Ernest Morneau - Yhea, this is cheating, but there are only so many Ernie's out there - We're a rare breed
2nd- Luis Ernesto (Montiel) Aparicio -(HOF) Luis Apricio - Even though he was a SS I figure he can easily make the transition to 2nd base
3rd- Ernest Judson Wilson - (HOF) Negro League star Jud Wilson - Career average of .351
SS- Ernie Banks (HOF)
OF- Charles Ernest Keller - Hit 33 HR's in 1941, 31 HR's in 1943, and 30 HR's in 1946 for the Yankees - 5 Time All-Star
OF- Carlton Ernest Fisk- (HOF) Known as a catcher, but also played some outfield
OF- Ernest Ralph Orsatti - .306 lifetime BA
C- Ernie Whitt - 1 All-Star appearance and Blue Jay great
IF- Leo Ernest Durocher - (HOF) "The Lip" - Not a bad player in his day, but would probably make a better manager for the team
IF- Ernest Lee Spivey Jr. otherwise known as Junior Spivey
IF- Luis Ernesto (Garcia) Salazar - Every team needs a utility man and Luis could play anywhere
OF- Ernie Chief Koy - Played for Brooklyn from 1938 to 1940 - Lifetime .279 BA
OF- Ernest Gordon Phelps - "Babe Phelps" - Only played the outfield once, but with his lifetime .310 BA and 3 All Star appearances I can't keep him off the team
SP- Ernest Edward Bonham - Won 21 games for the 1942 Yankees
SP- Ernest Gilbert Broglio - A league leading 21 wins in 1960 for the St. Louis Browns - 3rd in Cy Young Voting that year
SP- Ernie White - 17 wins for the Cardinals in 1941 and 6th in MVP voting that same year
SP- George Ernest Uhle - Won 26 games in 1923 and 27 games in 1926 for the Indians
SP- Fredrick Ernest Goldsmith - Won 98 games for the Cubs from 1880 to 1883
RP- Bruce Ernest Howard - 3.18 lifetime ERA
RP- Ernie Johnson - 148 ERA+ for the 1953 Milwaukee Braves
RP- Daniel Ernest Schatzeder - 3.74 lifetime ERA
RP- Raymond Ernest Herbert - Was an All Star and won 20 games for the White Sox in 1962
CL- Ernie Camacho - 23 Saves for the 1984 Indians

- AAA All-Star Game voting is going on now. Go here and vote for the Isotopes and vote often.
- Cards in the Attic has pics of the 2009 Albuquerque Isotopes team set. Check them out here. See more pics from the set and the game they were handed out here at Dinged Corners.
- Manny to the Isotopes.
- Nice, GCRL makes a Mitch Jones Goose Joak card. Check out the other Goose Joak Original Baseball cards of Dodger players here.

- Check out the Congressional Baseball Game between the Democrats and Republicans.
THE DEMOCRATS WERE SO INTO IT, on the Democratic side! This made them infinitely more annoying than the Republicans, who were just trying to get through the day, as usual. Not even joking, these Dem staffers broke into MANY loud, smug group chants of “Yes We Can,” when they weren’t heckling “EAAAARRRRMAAARRRKS” instead.
- Great Rivalry Video.
