    Double Play Duos

    Who are some of the best, or your favorite middle-infield combos?

    I mentioned Alomar/Vizquel in the HoF thread, and Pokey/Nomar is probably my favorite. Pokey/Barry was a good one too. And BP/Cozart were as sure-handed as they come.

    Who comes to mind for you?

    My favorites are from the 1959 "Go Go White Sox"--"Little" Luis Aparicio and Nelly Fox.

    Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley for the Phillies.

    Bill Russell/Davey Lopes for the Dogers (even though I couldn't stand the Dodgers back then)

    How about Pee Wee Reese and Jackie Robinson for the Dodgers?

    Trivia: the 3rd baseman was Harry Steinfeldt, who died in Bellevue, Ky. From the Tinkers, to Evers, To Chance poem.

    Being a Philly fan, I really wanted to say this one. However, although they won a World Series together, they just didn't play together long enough. Only 3 years. Which is why I feel Rollins/Utley is the top Phillies DP duo., and one of the top 4 or 5 of all time. Both great defensively, and offensively.
