In that case, I'd take Brian Anderson because he's got Felix's number.

1. Vladimir Guerrero (if healthy)
2. Pujols
3. A-Rod
3. Cabrera, Miguel
5. Roy Oswalt, J. Santana or F. Hernandez

eh?

You definitely start with Pujols on offense, Buerhle on the mound and Rangers' infielders.

How about for a team you want to see win?

Scott Ruffcorn...or Dan Pasqua

I'd say Rich Harden if your talking about starting a real young team, but Pujols is almost a no-brainer.

Come on, Felix Hernandez? Don't get me wrong, I think he can be a very good player, but you would actually take a guy who has thrown just 84.1 innings in the big leagues over proven great players like Santana, Pujols, Arod, Cabrera, Oswalt, etc.?

For me, it's pretty simple. It's either Pujols or Santana. I guess it would depend on the mood I'm in on that day. :smile:

I like Pujols more as a player, and it would be tough to pass up what he brings to a team, but I'd probably go pitching and take Santana.

Michael Young would be a better choice than Texeira because there are about 10-12 really good offensive 1B and only 4-5 really strong offensive and defensive shortstops.

I also think it's interesting now that nobody is mentioning Miguel Tejada. I certainly did not expect Derek Jeter to be on anyone's radar, lol.

And, in good conscience, I could not honestly pick Mark over some of the other pitchers in MLB if I had my own franchise...I would be very hard-pressed to take Buehrle over Mulder and even Zito or CC Sabathia/Cliff Lee, to tell you the truth.

I'd take Buehrle over any of those you mentioned, but even though he is a Twin, I'd take Santana over Buehrle.

I'm not convinced that Santana is a corner-stone franchise type of pitcher. He dropped off rapidly last year. His excellent numbers from 2004 stem from that historic 2nd half he had which is unparalleled in history.

Among lefties, only Randy Johnson (103), Mark Mulder (97), Andy Pettitte (91), Tom Glavine (88), Jamie Moyer (87), Barry Zito, David Wells (86) have won more games in this decade. Mark Buehrle with 85 wins is young and (touchwood) uninjured of that lot.

Do you mean when his team was scoring 2.5 runs per game for him? So he wasn't getting any "wins"? Does that constitute your drop off?

Are more importantly, who was a better pitcher last year, Bartolo Colon or Johan?

Johan, hands down. However, I would take Pujols to start my franchise.

Ichiro, on a good team (which I would hope to build) he would be a huge asset.

As much as I like Pujols, I'd probably still take A-Rod.

Or Josh Beckett. :wink:
