D.C. throwing in the towel
« on: February 24, 2006, 01:19:31 PM »
It looks like my current run is over and it's time to rebuild again. Anybody older than, say, 27 or so is available, although for some of the younger guys the price will have to be right.

Most notable guys available, I think:

C Arthur McIlhenny -- his batting average is off to a little bit of a slow start, but I expect that to bounce back up. Has power and speed, would be an upgrade behind the plate for quite a few clubs. 34 years old.

1B Jason Wallin -- great bat at first base, solid in the field as well. 31 years old.

2B/SS Paco Andujar -- good pop for a middle infielder. Just turned 34.

SP Charlie Clowers -- still a top pitcher, probably among the second tier in the league. Would be a passable #1 or excellent #2 for most clubs. Just turned 33 but hasn't shown any sign of slowing down and probably has a few more very good years in him.

Feel free to ask about anybody else on the roster. There's some excellent role-players in there.

I'm looking to get younger, be it through prospects, guys establishing themselves just now at the major-league level, or picks. Any offer will be considered.

Wow, Wallin is 31.  I feel old.

McIlhenny, Wallin and Andujar are all still available. McIlhenny and Andujar in particular are pretty cheap.

The following players are very cheap, but I think could play a bench role for most teams in the race (some for a decent bat, some for their multi-positional versatility). Any of them could be had for something like a 1.5-star prospect or fourth-round draft pick.

(player, age, position, contact/gap/power/eye/avoid, speed/steal)
A. Rusticucci, 36, 1B/LF, 5/4/6/6/4, 4/7
B. Scott, 35, 1B, 5/6/6/5/6, 4/3
P. Lomeli, 34, 2B/3B/SS, 5/7/3/5/7, 2/5
R. Lininger, 35, LF/CF/RF, 3/4/6/10/3, 2/2 -- note his good eye and solid power
D. Dunkel, 38, 1B/2B/3B/SS/LF, 4/5/4/3/4, 3/2
H. Sapiens, 31, 1B/2B/3B/RF, 5/1/4, 3/6

These are the guys who are definitely available but will take a little more (info in the same order as above):

P. Andujar, 35, 2B/SS, 7/3/8/4/6, 4/4 -- good bat for a middle infielder
J. Wallin, 31, 1B, 6/3/7/9/5, 2/4 -- past 30, but still a middle-of-the-order hitter
A. McIlhenny, 34, C, 5/7/7/6/4, 7/8 -- power and speed behind the plate
S. Perkins, 30, CF/RF, 7/8/2/4/7, 6/4
L. Szabonagy, 31, 2B/SS, 8/4/2/3/8, 3/4

Feel free to ask about anybody else, I'm amenable to moving just about anybody. Now I need to check out the pitchers.
