    The Marlin would probably be either Uggla or Stanton.

    And I'd go with Pudge Rodriguez over Juan Gonzalez.

    Kirby (anything else is absurd)
    Herb
    Garnett (ditto here)
    Bud Grant (The KFAN bobos will probably go with Tarkenton; in realitywe deserve just a pair of uprights)

    I’ll take a crack at Seattle:

    Frank Foyston (HOFer that played for the Metropolitans)
    Lenny Wilkins (though Payton and McMillian could be considered)
    Steve Largent (though Wilson will probably take over at some point)
    Edgar Martinez (you would think Griffey, and you’re probably right, but this is a Seattle list and they’d take Edgar)

    Honorable mention to Sue Bird and Clint Dempsey.

    Vikings back up QB
    Wild back up goalie

    My personal 5-minute Rushmore:

    Garnett
    Modano
    Carter (originally had Moss, but his second go around soured me on him)
    Radke

    To me, the Red Sox are very clear cut. The conversation starts and ends with Ted Williams. I'm sorry, but Yastrzemski does not match up with Williams, and no one else can hold a candle to Yaz, let alone Williams.

    With the Celtics, you have Russell and Bird, and everyone else is in line behind those two.

    I couldn't decide between Frazier and Reed which is why I wrote "I guess".

    If one wants one from each sport covering all teams, I would go with
    Ruth
    Trottier
    Taylor
    Frazier (or Reed)

    I'd take Ewing over Reed and Frazier over both of them.

    I have a headache. The passenger in the car I hit was taken to the hospital; not sure on the severity of her injury. I was cited for causing injury.
