Rotation:
1. Jarrod Washburn- 9 w, 176 ip, 100 k, 3.78 ERA, 1.19 WHIP
2. Pedro Martinez- 5 w, 44.2 ip, 37 k, 3.63 ERA, 1.25 WHIP
3. Erik Bedard- 5 w, 83 ip, 90 k, 2.82 ERA, 1.19 WHIP
4. Braden Looper- 14 w, 194.2 ip, 100 k, 5.22 ERA, 1.49 WHIP
5. John Smoltz- 3 w, 78 ip, 73 k, 6.35 ERA, 1.45 WHIP

Bullpen:
Kevin Gregg/CL- 72 g, 68.2 ip, 71 k, 23 sv, 4.72 ERA, 1.31 WHIP
Kiko Calero- 67 g, 60 ip, 69 k, 1.95 ERA, 1.10 WHIP
Russ Springer- 74 g, 57 ip, 58 k, 4.11 ERA, 1.49 WHIP
Mike MacDougal- 57 g, 54.1 ip, 34 k, 20 sv, 4.31 ERA, 1.66 WHIP
Joe Beimel/Lefty- 71 g, 55.1 ip, 35 k, 3.58 ERA, 1.37 WHIP
Ron Mahay/Lefty- 57 g, 50.1 ip, 42 k, 4.29 ERA, 1.67 WHIP
Chan Ho Park- 45 g, 83.1 ip, 73 k, 4.43 ERA, 1.40 WHIP

Notes:
The lineup has a nice mix of lefties and righties, with a couple switch hitters thrown in too. Torrealba and Barajas would split time equally behind the plate, Barajas got the "starting" label because of his power numbers. Blalock would serve as DH too, so Dye can become part of the outfield rotation. This lineup would likely outscore the Royals and Pirates, but the outfield defense is pretty atrocious. The rotation is a bit thin on health and innings. Therefore, the bullpen is fortified with relievers that can pitch a lot.

*2009 Free Agent Team- Orlando Hudson, Braden Looper, Garret Anderson, Pedro Martinez, and Joe Beimel are repeat offenders.
*2008 Free Agent Team- half of this team is now retired.
*2007 Free Agent Team- half of this team is now retired, thankfully.

Looks like the Rockies scooped up my utility infielder Melvin Mora.

Burton said...

Mora had a decent season last year, I'm surprised he wasn't snatched up sooner.

GM-Carson said...

He's declining a lot over recent years. He's nothing more than a reserve now. He's got to feed his quintuplets though, so pay the man!

Kevin Gregg, Jonny Gomes, Yorvit Torrealba, Erik Bedard, Adam Kennedy, Melvin Mora, and Orlando Hudson have all be signed since the drafting of this post.

My replacements- Jamey Wright in relief, Livan Hernandez for the rotation, Jose Molina for backup catcher, Rocco Baldelli for outfield, Rick Aurilla for utility infielder, Robb Quinlan for 3rd base, and Joe Crede for 3rd as well.

When you account for defense and offense you would be better off with Johnny Damon in LF and someone like Endy Chavez in CF.

And I would have Chien-Ming Wang instead of Chan Ho Park.
