In a sport that has a reputation of being a timeless game, there was one game in Foxborough that seemed to have no end.

With the Boston Red Sox getting ready for opening day and celebrating the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park, there is going to be a lot of opportunity to look back at the all-time greats to wear their uniform. The Red Sox are running a voting contest at bostonredsox.com, but we're jumping the gun here with an all-time team before the season even starts. The only rule on this team is that you have to have compiled the stats as a Red Sox player and other teams you played on doesn't factor in.
