I had to re-read this to make sure what was going on. Nomo....Belle must be from LA and about 23-24 years old.

There needs to be more structure in this thread. People are taking all the "cheap" all-stars who will cost a ton as soon as arbitration or free-agency comes up. Or they are taking cheap players who overproduced last year.

Put a cap on it for this year and 3 years down the road and it would be easier to pick the team.

PS...I though this was a thread to post your favorite players of all time....I guess I'll go do that.

Sorry this is bothering me...

Why is everyone taking Teixeira and putting him at DH? He won the AL gold-glove last season. The man can field, Ryan Howard cannot.

And Nomo was put in Mop-up duty. Kind of like the Twins $1 Terry Mullholand (yes we gave the M's one dollar for him).
