Build a complete team from FAs

Postby johntudor » Wed Aug 22, 2007 12:54 pm

What's the best team you could build from the FA pool in your league?

Here's mine, 10-team 5x5 roto redraft:
c-Saltalamacchia
1b-Delgado
2b-Kent
3b-Rolen
ss-Furcal
of-De.Young
of-Drew
of-Corey Hart
ut-Thomas

sp-Willis
sp-Mussina
sp-Arroyo
sp-Zito
sp-Wakefield
rp-Gordon
rp-Neshek
rp-Pena

Sad to say that team could maybe be in 7th or 8th place except the SPs are pretty weak.

SS Tulo
OF Hawpe
OF Victorino
