    All Free Agents Team Contest

    Compose a roster of 25 Free Agents. Any grouping of players is fine.

    Include manager who currently is out of a big league job who you would put in charge of managing this roster.

    Budget is turned off, you can compose a roster of whoever you want.

    Once most teams are compiled, I may create a poll and we can vote on who chose the best rosters.

    Use the follow format. Best of Luck. Have fun. Please take this seriously.

    Probably wouldn't be that good of a team. Not your fault, it's that this free agent class is so weak. I'd think this is probably a 80-85 win team.

    People ask me, "Why here? Why Kentucky?", I said "Why not"? It can be done here. It will be done here. Lay the foundation. Recruit and develop. Prepare to win. Day by day. Play by play. A new era of high performance. Why Kentucky? Why not? -Mark Stoops

    Yeah, it was kind of tough picking my middle infield, third baseman, and starters outside of Greinke and Kuroda. I think this oculd be a contender, though, but in no way shape or form a "powerhouse."

    I would like to come up with a team, but I want to start by saying it's flawed. you could simply take the top 5 starting pitchers and put them on the same team. you could take 3 or 4 closers and put them all in the bullpen.

    maybe a better way is to have a fair budget and for players to get paid based on comparing their recent numbers to other similar players in the league and how much they make. but that might be complicated and take more work.
