 Just pick up someone else! All-time fan-tasy baseball by Strat-O-Matic includes allthe big names, from today and yesteryear. The Pirates’ Roberto Clemente, say, mightmake a great replacement — unless he’salready on your starting squad. How aboutthe Braves’ Hank Aaron or the Orioles’Frank Roninson? Already taken? Then whatabout the Giants’ Mel Ott or Seattle’s IchiroSuzuki? Of course, there’s always Al Kalineor Reggie Jackson. And don’t forget NegroLeague players like “Cool Papa” Bell.
