    Trade out Young for Upton, and this is probably the best team, and Kyle Lohse the 6th man

    You have four legit outfielders in Bourn, Hamilton, Upton, and Swisher, so someone is sort of forced to be your odd man out

    Put Scutaro at 2B, Izturis at SS, Upton or Hunter (leaning towards Hunter)for Young and have Soria setting up and you're on to something. I would also have Randy Choate in the pen to balance it out.

    Would you trust a blind scout? Of course you wouldn't but that's what you do when you simply go by stats
    Splifftone, OptiskeptSF and Ciaban have a lot in common

    Okay, same thing, but you have a 150 million dollar budget, and you have to sign each player to the assumed budget that Fangraphs estimates their next contracts to earn


    Player costs
    Swisher - 14 million
    Upton - 13 million
    Anibal Sanchez - 13 million
    Greinke - 19 million
    Pagan - 10 million
    Melky - 8 million
    Hamilton - 20 million
    Kuroda - 12 million
    Hunter - 10 million
    Ortiz - 13 million
    Dempster - 12 million
    McCarthy - 10 million
    Victorino - 10 million
    Edwin Jackson - 12 million
    Oswalt - 6 million
    Blanton - 7 million
    Scutaro - 8 million
    Izturis - 5 million
    LaRoche - 12 million
    Drew - 8 million
    Keppinger - 5 million
    Hafner - 5 million
    Villanueva - 6 million
    Shoppach - 3 million
    Delmon Young - 8 million
    Lohse - 13 million
    Napoli - 12 million
    Bourn - 14 million
    DiceK - 4 million
    Youk - 8 million
    Haren - 10 million
    Soriano - 12 million
    Affeldt - 8 million
    Burnett - 6 million
    Lindstrom - 4 million
    Hawkins - 3 million
    Girilli - 3 million
    Uehera - 4 million
    Hariston - 4 million
    Pierre - 2 million
    Ross - 2 million
    Feldman - 5 million
    Sizemore - 3 million
    Berkman - 4 million
    Olivo - 3 million
    Martin - 5 million
    Chavez - 3 million
    Ichiro - 4 million



    no matter how good of a team you put together, you can't do it with this free agent class and they be a 90 win team on paper and do it for under 200 million.

    Free agency, the land of inefficiency.

    I would like to go ahead and cancel my first team, and sorry for any inconvenience it may have caused.

    I would like to go ahead and try to put together a team using the money payroll. my previous team if I added correct would come to a total of.. 217. that's too much.

    EDIT: if a free agent is not listed above with a money number, would that mean he is $1 million?

    EDIT part 2: do we have to follow the rules (if that's what they're called) about only picking players at the positions they are listed? example, Delmon Young at DH over the other players listed at DH. or are we allowed to use any offensive player at DH?

    Yeah, I'd say so


    Now if you are the Yankees or Dodgers, 217 is worth it lol.

    I was looking over at fangraphs.com to get a list of the players with assume contracts.
    I found this link with assume contracts in assumed years. you can divide the contract by years to get the 1 year number.
