Tulo is at 4.1 fWAR less than 1/3 of the way through 2014. Got most crap for making him $5, but he's my SS pick. pic.twitter.com/r2G0xdykJg— Drew Silva (@drewsilv) May 30, 2014

Do any current MLB players make it?
Here's Shep's team:
LF: Rickey Henderson, CF: Ken Griffey Jr., RF: Roberto Clemente, 3B: Mike Schmidt, SS: Cal Ripken, 2B: Jackie Robinson, 1B: Lou Gehrig, C: Pudge Rodriguez, SP: Randy Johnson, RP: Dennis Eckersley
