Hi, and welcome to another edition of Dodgers Dugout. My name is Houston Mitchell and while we wait for more offseason moves, let’s continue picking the all-time 40-man roster with the wild-card round.

The all-time team, wild card

Now that we have chosen three players at each position other than pitcher, let’s select two more position players. To do so, I will take the highest vote getters at each position who did not make the team, plus anyone who got more than 15% of the vote. You can vote for two of those players, which will put our roster at 26 players before we get to the pitchers.

Here’s your list of players on the ballot:

Brett Butler

Dolph Camilli

Rafael Furcal

Kirk Gibson

Adrian Gonzalez

Shawn Green

Pedro Guerrero

Babe Herman

Eric Karros

Jim Lefebvre

Yasiel Puig

Pete Reiser

John Roseboro

Dixie Walker

Steve Yeager

Now it’s time for you to vote. Remember to vote for two. You can click here to vote, or you can email me your two choices. Ties are not allowed, and you have to vote for two. Vote for more or fewer and your vote won’t count.

Next week: Starting pitchers. We’ll be voting for nine.
