6) Jackson, rf
7) Yastremski, lf
8) Bench, c

Comments: Defense at 1b soft, but otherwise good despite playing Aaron out of position ... Aaron a 2 (-1) e5 in CF ... Plenty of power ... Projected rotation of Seaver, Gibson, Carlton, Marichal leaves no room for Koufax, who shouldn't go in four-man rotation anyway. Hard to leave Koufax out of rotation. ... Fingers to close. Duh ... Two 300-game winners in rotation, a third in the bullpen (Niekro),a fourth drafted by the Obamas and two more (Gaylord Perry and Don Sutton) out of the league.
