Wow those are all good keeper teams. But I like A the best because of the future value of Kinsler, Longoria and Lincecum.

Otherwise for the best team this coming year it's hard to argue with team B. Stacked for sure.

B

The thought of owning Pujols, Utley, Wright, and Reyes is a dream i could never imagined. IMO. You have #1 1B, #1 2B, #2 3B, #2 SS. And they don't get hurt... typically!

I think A was my second choice, but youth and some past injuries woo'd me to B.

C's pitching keepers I drool over, which made me give it some thought. But i'm not impressed with a couple middle tier OF's.

I have to go

1) B - outrageous infield, enough said. The pitching is the weakest of all three but who cares with an infield like that.

2) A - the edge goes slightly to A here. I think they are younger and have much greater potential. The pitching after Lincecum is a little iffy to me, because of Harden's health and Oswalt's age.

3) C - the other teams are so stacked the weakness of the outfield hurts this team. That being said all three teams are studly, and I would be more than happy to have this team's core going into the season.

This year:
A
B
C


2010 and beyond:
A
C
B
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.

Wow deff the new Team C is better than team A, B ,C. Has the best balance of great hitting and pitching. Wheras, Team B has awesom hitting but so-so pitching, Team A has a decent balance and the best pitching of the first three and the old C just does not compare to the first two.
