With the current economic crisis-placing more stress on money than ever before in the Major Leagues, I thought it would be interesting to make my own franchise.
No, this is not intended to be a star-studded team to compete with the Yankees' payroll. Think of it more of the Costco of franchises-getting the most for your money.
The approximate median of 2009 payrolls was $80 Million, which will be my budget for assembling this 25 man team.
Keep in mind while reading this, that I am creating a team for the present. This factors out players who may have been call-ups, and thus, have minuscule contracts. This includes guys such as Tommy Hanson, Weiters, etc.
WIthout further ado, here is my MLB All-Value team.
