Regardless of how our favorite team is performing on the field, nearly every one of us is guilty—at one point or another—of looking ahead to the upcoming offseason by playing general manager, trying to figure out moves that the guys who get paid to make such decisions should make.
Sometimes we see things just as the front office does; other times, we are left scratching our heads trying to figure out what they were thinking.
But it doesn't stop us from going through the process over and over again.
It's the dream of a better team to root for. It's the dream of walking into our home ballpark for a Game 7 in the World Series and watching the guy you said was the missing link bring home a World Series championship.
With that in mind, let's say that fans get to go after one player for their teams this winter. While all of these players have been speculated about over the past few months, all of them aren't necessarily "available" in the truest sense of the world.
But hey, isn't that what dreams are about, trying to obtain the seemingly unattainable?
