#Hot Corner

Best Team Left

It’s almost February and Bill Hall's about to sign a minor-league deal. That means it’s time to play: Could a team made up of the remaining free agents beat the Astros?

Our lineup is old, but we’re hungry. Johnny Damon leads off with Aaron Miles setting the table for Yoenis Cespedes, Vlad and .300-hitting Casey Kotchman. The bottom half features Fukudome, Renteria, Pudge and Eric Chavez. Our bench is stacked with D-Lee, Ankiel, Carlos Guillen, Ibañez, Paulino, Ordoñez and pinch-hitter extraordinaire Dan Johnson.

Our staff will eat innings: Edwin Jackson, Brad Penny, Roy Oswalt, Livan Hernandez and Javier Vasquez. Our pen will throw hard: H-C Kuo, Coffey, Durbin, Qualls and Mike Gonzalez. Come to think of it ... we’re younger than the Phillies and Yankees. I'm not nerdy enough to really crunch these numbers but this feels like a .500 team in the NL West.
