    Baseball Told the Right Way
    In-depth Baseball analysis on various topics regarding the sport we all love!

      KMart is the funnest place on earth.
    I'd like to take a moment to welcome myself back to the world of the internet. Yes, they do have that on computers now, and I once again have one of those thingies. So that means the temporary hiatus is over. Over, I tell you.

    I spent my non-internet time reading Ball Four (thanks Frank) and for those of you who haven't read it, I recommend it highly.

    So the hotstove (as its called for a reason nobody really knows) has started. Free agents have filed, and since I'm behind the time, I better get caught up before the good ones start to sign and the anger begins to mount. After all, there's a pretty good chance I'm going to have to dis-erect my Jason Varitek altar, which pains my heart. Regardless, it has to be done.

    Anyways, one thing I like to do in the offseason is put together a team from scratch. Well, not scratch, you'd of course need about $400 million, no aversion to being told what to do by a car salesman in a bad hairpiece, and a local government willing to stick the taxpayers for a brand new ballpark. But lets say I had all that and wanted to start a baseball team. Forget the draft, I'm starting with free agents only. Give me Scott Boras on line 1, and I'm going to build myself a team and move them to my new park in Mexico City.

    I did this last year with a friend who unfortunately is a proud (as much as one could be) Tigers fan and we actually put together a pretty good squad. Not cheap, but pretty good. Here's this year's,
    Nomar Garciaparra  SS
    Carlos Beltran CF
    Carlos Delgado 1B
    Troy Glaus DH
    Adrian Beltre 3B
    J.D. Drew LF
    Magglio Ordonez RF
    Jeff Kent 2B
    Jason Varitek C

    Richie Sexson
    Edgar Renteria
    Moises Alou
    Todd Walker
    Quinton McCracken (for fun)

    SP Pedro Martinez
    SP Carl Pavano
    SP Matt Clement
    SP Brad Radke
    SP Kevin Millwood

    CL Troy Percival
    RP Armando Benitez
    RP Robb Nen
    RP Chris Hammond
    RP Jeff Nelson
    RP Rheal Cormier
    A little weak in the relief core, but that lineup is a contender. Maybe we sign Derek Lowe and Matt Morris and move them back to the pen. The only problem with the whole deal is that by my (very) rough estimate, that 25 man roster sets its new owner back about $170 million. At least they would beat the Yankees.

    Where's Mark Cuban when you need him?
