It’s the end of January, and there is still an entire roster full of players unsigned. Perhaps they can go ahead and create an expansion team in Las Vegas and fill the roster with the following players:
I figured this team would have around a top half payroll, so I tried to keep it around $160M. But I spent close to $120M on 7 players, so money got scarce as you filled out the roster. Interestingly, with all of the FAs left available, there really aren’t many pitchers left one you clear Darvish and Arrieta. In fact, Garcia is the best LHP left. It goes to show you that teams are locking up pitching, and the Braves are smart to do so. I also find it interesting that I can fill a team on a top half budget considering I don’t have the privilege of having many cost-controlled players. Perhaps that’s why there are so many teams who simply never seek to have a top farm.
The Braves could certainly use some of these players…
