As a Met fan its between Reyes and Wright because they are the 2 Mets that weren't ridiculous overpayed for. But I have to go with Wright because less injury concerns.

just because a player got injured one season in his career doesn't mean he has injury concerns. look at games played and at-bats every other year, Reyes has always been one of the most durable players in baseball.

in all of baseball, it's gotta be Longoria with that long, cheap (relatively) contract.

for my hometown Twins.. gotta be Mauer. similar contract to Longoria's.

Cubbies - At this point its gotta be Stalin Castro. He has shown great promise thus far and seems to be about the only piece on the Cubs roster young enough to be considered for years to come. It came down between him, Colvin and Marmol and personally would rather the talent at a harder to find position in SS then an OFer or Closer.

Funny, an 8-year, $184 million contract is exactly what I think of when I think Yankee money.

Cardinals - Adam Wainwright.

2011 - $6.5M
2012 - $9M club option
2013 - $12M club option

Not bad for a perennial Cy Young candidate.
