The all-"not offered arbitration" team

Compiled from http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=1680976

Hi I'm Justise the new manager of the NY Mets. I just convinced the whole team to just tear up thier contracts and quit the game. I'm now building a new team with the free agents on the market, since I got 86 million dollars to spend lets go shopping!

C - Brett Mayne - 2 million a year
1st - Travis Lee - 2.5 Million a year
2nd - Jose Reyes- 500,000 a year
SS - Kaz Matsui - - 6.5 million a year
3rd - Tony Batista - 4 million a year
LF - Jose Guillen - 3.5 million a year
CF - Juan Gone - 7 million a year + 2.5 incentives
RF - Vlad - 14 million a year.
Bench - John Mabry - 1.5 million a year
Bench - Mark McLemore - 1.5 million a year.
Bench - Andres Galarraga - 500,000 a year.
Bench - Plkey Reese - 1 million.
SP - Sidney Ponson - 6 million a year.
SP - Miguel Batista - 6.5 million a year.
SP - John Burkett - 4 million a year.
SP - Greg Maddux - 9 million a year.
SP - Cory Lidle - 5.5 million a year.
RP - Arthur Rhodes - 2 million a year.
RP - Chad Fox - 1 million a year.
RP - Jeff Nelson - 1 million a year.
RP - Mike Williams - 2 million a year.
Closer-Tim Worrell - 3 million a year.

There we go, and I come in at around 84.5 million a year for the first year.

Long live the not offered arbitration mets team.

Justise

how about mike cameron in CF instead of juan gone? i think chad fox re-signed with the marlins before the deadline to offer arbitration. i would also add maddux and kenny rogers instead of lidle and lima. salary constraints might force me to throw in shane reynolds, suppan or someone like that even though i wouldnt really want them. i would also add benitez as a set up man and cut out mike williams. if that forces me to use some minor league free agents in the bullpen then i would do that. i would also cut off some of the guys on the bench. 1.5 million for galarraga is too much. i will take some AAA stiff over that and use the money elsewhere. and i dont think we can count kaz as a non-tender in this case. but other than that its a solid team.

You got the job! ;-D
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

Fun from boredom, anyway.

tlef316 was right, ya don't drop a super star rookie for todd walker, I forgot about the reyes dood. So I convince him to come back from retirement for a few seasons.

That, plus paying Galaragga less, I was able to get a few more bucks for Greg Maddux.

yay!

As a seattlite, I don't want cameron on any teams of mine, specially in a harder park then ours. To many warning track balls.

You mistake the warning track for the outer edge of the diamond man :-]

fair enough.

as much as i would enjoy seeing juan gone in center, you might be better of with lofton. something tells me he is a little bit more mobile. would save a couple dollars as well.

Juan Gone in center?! 8-o 8-o 8-o

He won't move more than 5 feet in any direction to catch a ball and if he does, he winds up hurt.
