the ones that got away

I've been thinking this week about how many great players have passed through the Red Sox organization and how, while I love our current roster, there are at least a few guys I wouldn't mind having back.

All of which got me to wondering: if you were to put together an ex-Red Sox all-star team, who would be on it? Not based on how they performed back when they wore our uniform, but rather, based on how they are performing now.

Here's who I'd choose:

C: Victor Martinez (Detroit Tigers, .333 AVG, 22 RBI)
1B: Casey Kotchman (Tampa Bay Rays, .352 AVG, 1 HR)
2B: Freddy Sanchez (San Francisco Giants, .265 ERA, 13 R)
SS: Alex Gonzalez (Atlanta Braves, 5 HR, 21 R)
3B: Eric Hinske (Atlanta Braves .326, 4 HR)
LF: David Murphy (Texas Rangers, .274 ERA, 4 SB)
CF: Johnny Damon (Tampa Bay Rays, 24 RBI, 5 SB)
RF: Coco Crisp (Oakland A’s, .256 ERA, 19R)
DH: Adrian Beltre (Texas Rangers, 8 HR, 28 RBI)

SP: Justin Masterson (Cleveland Indians, 2.11 ERA, 5-0)
SP: Joel Pineiro (Los Angeles Angels, 1.33 ERA, 2-0)
SP: Bruce Chen (Kansas City Royals, 3.59 ERA, 4-1)
SP: Derek Lowe (Atlanta Braves, 3.73 ERA, 47 K)
SP: Bronson Arroyo (Cincinnati Reds, 3.68 ERA, 33 K)

RP: Javier Lopez (San Francisco Giants, 0.59 ERA, 1-0)
RP: Ramon Ramirez (San Francisco Giants, 1.06 ERA, 12 K)
RP: Taylor Bucholz (New York Mets, 1.41 ERA, 21K)

Who would be on your team?
