Yesterday's All-P.M. Hall of Names team calls to mind the fact that we have done a number of "all-initial" teams including every single double initial from AA through ZZ, as well as GM, PR, JR, MD, TO, BS, MO and JV, among others. Some of these rosters would be quite good -- some, well, not so much. But your challenge, Bauxites ... what initials would form the best possible team? Let us know your candidates ...

For instance, an All-AR squad could include Alex Rodriguez, Aramis Ramirez, Al Rosen, Aaron Rowand, Amos Rusie and Allie Reynolds. (Not to mention one Alexis Rios.)  Who can build a lineup, or even a full roster, to beat that one?

A few rules ...

Ready? Set? G.O.!
