2009 National League All Troll Team Starting Line Up

I had been hoping to have this up before MLB announced the line-ups for the All Star team, but work got in the way. I will say that the All Troll Teams were selected on Saturday morning for both leagues and were in no way influenced by the MLB All Star teams. Since this is an imaginary line up for an imaginary team playing an imaginary game, I chose to go with a DH for the National League squad as well. Well, here it is, the starting line up for the 2009 National League All Troll Team…
Leading off, the centerfielder for the best team in the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the man they call the Bison,
1. Matt Kemp CF-.303/10/43 19 steals Batting second, the 2006 Rookie of the Year, a two-time All Star, The Florida Marlins shortstop…
2. Hanley Ramirez SS-.346/14/60 12 steals In the #3 slot, at 30 years old he is making his first All Star appearance, the Colorado Rockies right fielder who is replacing Phillies outfielder Raul Ibanez and his wounded groin in the starting line up today…
3. Brad Hawpe RF-.327/13/56 Batting cleanup is perhaps the best hitter in all of baseball, an 8-time All Star and 2-time NL MVP, the St. Louis Cardinals first baseman…
4. Albert Pujols 1B-.336/31/82 10 steals In the five slot, the Milwaukee Brewers first baseman, getting the start at DH on this team, the youngest player ever to hit 50 homeruns, a 2-time All Star…
5. Prince Fielder DH-.310/21/75 Batting 6th for the NL is one of the biggest surprise players of the year, playing in his first full season, the man they call Kung Fu Panda, the San Francisco Giants 3rd baseman…
6. Pablo Sandoval 3B-.333/12/44 Batting 7th is a 4-time All Star at age 25, the Atlanta Braves catcher…
7. Brian McCann C-.304/8/33 In the 8th spot, the Arizona Diamond Backs phenom outfielder, making his first All Star appearance this year, the 21-year-old…
8. Justin Upton LF-.300/14/45 Rounding out the lineup for the NL is the 2006 Batting Champ, a 3 time All Star, the Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman…
9. Freddy Sanchez 2b-.316/6/33 The starting pitcher today is the NL’s reigning Cy Young Award winner, earning his second All Star selection, currently riding a streak of 23 scoreless innings, the San Francisco Giants…
Tim Lincecum 9-2/2.23 ERA/141Ks/3 Com.Games/2 SHO There you have it, that is the starting lineup for the 2009 National League All Troll Team. The reserves for both leagues will be named this week. I will also give out the midseason All Troll awards for top rookie, pitcher and MVP. Stay tuned.
Go Rays! Troll out.

  2. Prince starting as the DH. That would be great if the game wasn't being played in ST. Louis and actually had a DH.
