Locos All-Time Team

We had close to 400 people vote for the Locos' All-Time Team. That's an amazing response and thanks to all of you who took the time to vote.
Eric Wedge remains the best player I saw put on a Lima uniform. He had the arm, could hit for average and had power. He was also a true leader.
Anyone who voted knows how difficult it was to select the pitchers. But no matter who you selected, you couldn't go wrong.
The most dominating Locos' pitcher I've seen was 2004 closer Rony Mercado. He had the most unhittable change-up, outside of former Reds right-hander Mario Soto.
Among my favorite players are Mike Smith, Joe Cheney, Mercado, Mark Abro and Brian Simmons. Other favorites not on the team are Mudcat Brewer, Ryan Steinbach, Ethan Barlow and Adam Mandel.
Who are your favorite players?
