Free-agent All-Star Team

If I didn’t do it, you knew somebody would. I’m sure many of you were doing the exercise in your mind. Of the available free-agents, this would make a pretty good team.

  1. That would be around 225 million a year to sign all those. To think that would be the same as the Yankess payroll if they increased it by 15 mil from last year is kind of funny, cuz technically they could.

  2. If OP is one of the 5 best FA starters, and younger than most if not all with no injury history, then why wouldn’t Minaya sign him vice some old soon to be broken down guy, or some guy who hasn’t faced all the NY media circus yet?

  3. Yeah but would they beat NEXT year’s free agent All Star team?
