Last week, I asked you all to come up with your all-time Royals lineup. Do you choose Carlos Beltran or Lorenzo Cain in center field? Mike Sweeney or Eric Hosmer at first? Greg Holland or Jeff Montgomery as closer? Lots of questions to answer.

Reader jayhawkkirk submitted a fantastic Fanpost with lots of good reasoning and an interesting lineup. Here’s what he came up with:

1. Willie Wilson

2. Hal McRae

3. George Brett

4. John Mayberry

5. Darrell Porter

6. Al Cowens

7. Alex Gordon

8. Frank White

9. Freddie Patek

jawhawkkirk selected Brett Saberhagen and Dan Quisenberry as his starter and closer.

Since jawhawkkirk’s submission was the only one, however, we’re gonna try this once more. What is YOUR all-time Royals lineup? Create a fanpost and zing those words down on the digital ink. See what you come up with. Just like last week, you’re looking to fill out each of the positions, including DH, as well as one starter and one closer/relief pitcher.

Happy writing!
