2017 Free Agent Squard

Spring Training is about 2 weeks away, yet many seemingly useful veterans remain in the limbo of free agency. Keeping with my annual tradition, I've constructed a team consisting solely of free agents. The rotation is a bit thin, overall defense would be sub-par, and there's not much speed, but I think collectively they'd still have a chance to outplay a handful of teams out there (I'm looking at you Padres, Reds, Twins, A's, Brewers, and even our beloved Phillies).

The one name that surprises me on the list (excluding a few for age) is Wieters. Someone has to need a veteran catcher.

Some of them are likely headed for retirement, including Ryan Howard.

Joe Blanton has been a great pitcher since moving to relief. I expected him to get a 2 YR/$12~14M contract.

Phils are better at 3rd and OF now but that bullpen above blows the Phillies out of the water

GM-Carson said...

Javier Lopez - retired
Chris Carter, Erick Aybar, Daniel Descalso, Drew Stubbs, Yusmeiro Petit, David Lough, Gordon Beckham, Jason Hammel, and Mike Napoli all signed.
