The Atlanta Braves bid a farewell in a Game 5 victory over the Cubs in a series-completing 3-1 win at Wrigley Field on Thursday night. The 4-2 victory in the 10th inning places the Braves in a deciding Game 6 of the National League Division Series at SunTrust Park on Friday with a spot in the National League Championship Series on the line.

WIN

So - let's get the pitching out of the way because it's the easiest. Of the 23 pitchers who have reached 300 wins, eight have played for the Braves organization at one time or another. Only two (Gaylord Perry and Cy Young) played a majority of their careers for other teams. John Clarkson played 5 of his 12 years with the Boston Beaneaters, having an unheard of 49 wins in 1888 and then again in 1889. The other five make up our all-time Braves starting rotation.

Andruw Jones would start in center field. He's the best defensive player of the bunch (looking at his time with the Braves - not this season obviously). Dale Murphy's arm would put him in right field. Henry Aaron would be playing left as he did in All-Star Games because Willie Mays was in center and Roberto Clemente was in right. He won three straight Gold Gloves in right field from 1958 to 1960. This outfield has about 1400 homeruns in a Braves uniform along with 18 Gold Gloves and over 4,000 career RBI. I'll take this group anyday. (Source: bleacherreport.com)

Despite Maranville's accomplishments, we're going to need a position change. There's no way I can put Rabbit Maranville in the all-time Braves lineup and leave out either Chipper Jones or Eddie Mathews. Since Chipper Jones was drafted as a shortstop and has major league experience (about 80 games I believe) at the position despite being a third basemen for 14 seasons and playing parts of three seasons in left field, we're putting him and his bat at shortstop over Maranville.
