I know the last thing we need is another outfielder, but Jose Guillen got designated for assignment by the D-Rays. He is still only 25, has 4 years of MLB experience, and has got a gun for an arm. The only outfielder in baseball who throws better than him is Vlad. Just a thought, he could probably be had for a PTBNL, maybe the guy we get from Texas.

LOL...

Maybe we could just play nine in the outfield... Considering we have guys like:

:walk :kipper :rocked :osuna

on the bump, we have no use for infielders since nothing is hit less than some 300 feet.

That would be a killer D, but teams might get wise to us.
How can we protect against the bunt? Charge Left and Right Field?

I think we played 9 different OF last year, or did it just seem like it. Let's see... magglio, lee, singleton, valentin, rowand, ramirez, canseco, christiansen, and that other guy makes nine... someone phone this in, we might have a winner

if anything, we'll hafta compromise and put royce at SS

I believe I pulled Jeff Liefer's (http://www.baseball-reference.com/l/liefeje01.shtml) name out of the hat a few times.

Julio Ramirez is already under contract,and he has a better arm than Vlad.
