More Bang For Your Buck

With a shrewd eye for talent, savvy business sense, and luck, a bargain can still be found in the free agent market. I composed a 25-man roster of free agents signed last offseason (2013-2014) to contracts of $2 million or less. Aside from a shaky back-end of the rotation, this team could compete.

Payroll - $26.75 million (via Cot's Baseball Contracts)
WAR - 33.1 (via Baseball-Reference)
