I had to dig deep for 2 catchers, as all the MLB free agents were already signed. The 2 guys I picked are actually minor league free agents, but they still appeared in the Majors in 2015.

The lineup is better than some in MLB now and the bullpen is decent. The rotation blows though.

A 2006 League MVP at first base. That sounds familiar. A few ex-Phillies are in this list: Harang, Byrd, Lohse, and of course Rollins. I think Simon may have been with the team at one point but possibly only in the minors.

Yep, Alfredo Simon was Phillies property for a minute.

P.O.S. Delmon Young back at it again. Assault charges and racial slurs. Remeber he did this in 2012. Such a piece of shit.

Tyler Clippard signed, so I'd insert Burke Badenhop in his place.

Any guys you take a flier on?
I'd consider Desmond on a one-year deal with a handshake agreement to trade him to a contender.
Get a decent prospect or two back.
