Definately Toronto...Wells, Glaus, Rios, Halladay, and Ryan. That's a nice group.

2nd would be the Cards...Pujols, Rolen, Edmonds, Carpenter, and Izzy.

I'd probably go with one of the teams that were already mentioned, but here's one that wasn't mentioned...Arizona Diamondbacks

Brandon Webb
Stephen Drew
Carlos Quentin
Chad Tracy
Conor Jackson

Just a suggestion because of the ace SP, and the very promising young talent
go 49ers!!!!!

In the end, my answer would be based on a couple of factors. Is this a dynasty keeper (i.e. keep forever)? If so, players like Wright and Reyes from the Mets are going to be studs for 10+ years.

Second, do you keep the players if they leave that team? If not, then teams like the DRays need to be avoided.

Anyway, presuming a dynasty, I'd go with the Angels, Mets (Wright, Reyes, Beltran, Milledge, Pelfrey) or DBacks (Quentin, Drew, Webb, C. Jackson, Upton).

Basically, I'd want 5 players I was going to get at least 5 good years from, all of whom could be argued to be 1st-3rd round picks for at least a portion of those 5+ years. That requirement eliminates teams like the Dodgers (loads of good young talent, but not much elite level) and Cards (not enough top-tier fantasy talent).
