Coal for the Hot Stove

The frigid weather around the northern part of Earth has been so cold lately that we feel it's only right to huddle around the hot stove.

To open the discussion, here are a few players recently recently rumored to be available by trade: Mark Teahen, Joe Blanton, Fausto Carmona, David Aardsma, Mike Cameron, Aaron Rowand, and Ryan Spilborghs.

Below is our suggestion for a 25-man roster comprised solely of current free agents, as of Dec 29, 2010.

Pos Player
SP: Jeff Francis
SP: Carl Pavano
SP: Brad Penny
SP: Freddy Garcia
SP: Justin Duchscherer
Swing: Bruce Chen
Middle: Chris Capuano
Middle: Micah Owings
LOOGY: Brian Fuentes
Setup: Rafael Soriano
Closer: Grant Balfour

C: Gregg Zaun
1b: Adam LaRoche
2b: Nick Punto
SS: Edgar Renteria
3b: Adrian Beltre
LF: Johnny Damon
CF: Frederick Lewis
RF: Lastings Milledge

Vladdy Daddy ain't done, yet.
C: Bengie Molina
IF: Willy Aybar
OF: Willie Harris
PH Rt: Jorge Cantu
PH Lt: Jim Thome
Bench: Manny Ramirez
Bench: Vladimir Guerrero

Is Fred Lewis really the best current available Outfielder?  Where will Willie Harris end up?  Nick Punto?  Really?  The bullpen on this team looks pretty solid.  What is your reaction?  Thoughts?  Opinions?

With Osh and Amy coming to visit for new year's tomorrow, we're likely done posting until 2011.

Have a happy and healthy New Year!
