TPR's Nathan Cone with former Astros manager, Larry Dierker.

Bob Gibson or Nolan Ryan? Who would you pick for your ultimate fantasy baseball team? Texas Public Radio's Nathan Cone sat down with former Houston Astros pitcher and manager Larry Dierker, whose book, "My Team: Choosing My Dream Team From My Forty Years In Baseball" is an illuminating look at the game from an insider's point-of-view. Dierker explains that statistics are only part of the overall package when it comes to great players--in order to have a winning team, you also need leaders.

In this interview, Dierker also offers his observations about how Major League Baseball has changed over the past 40 years, and his thoughts on the steroids scandal.
