If you could start a team with one hitter and one pitcher who would those two guys be? The players have to currently be in the Majors.

I'd take Tim Lincecum and Ryan Braun

Felix Hernandez & Jay Bruce (because they're 22 and 21 respectively)

It would take a few years to build a team around 2 players, and these 2 would still be considered young once you got the rest of the pieces.

Scott Kazmir and Chase Utley.

Hanley Ramirez and Felix Hernandez

Utley is obviously tremendous, but I'd build my team around players that are outstanding, yet still have not reached their primes. Utley is already 29.

hanley ramirez and clayton kershaw.

kershaw is still a couple years off of being a bona fide ace, but the point is to build, and he has amazing stuff with an unlimited ceiling, and is cost controlled for a long time. and hanley is as good a 5-tool guy to put in the 3 spot as anybody

Pujols and JSantana. Both still under 30.

Wright/Lincecum are close.

HRam, Braun are horrible fielders.

Felix will never maximize his potential.

For pure kids, i take JUpton.
