The All-Cut Team

The days of veteran players getting contracts because they’re veterans is over.  Teams are looking to fill roster spots with young, cheap talent.  Want more proof?  Look at this team constructed of players who were non-tendered last week:

Garrett Atkins

My oh my, how quickly we have fallen

C  John Buck
1B Ryan Garko
2B Kelly Johnson
3B Garret Atkins
SS (none; apparently SS is in short supply)
LF Johnny Gomes
CF Jeremy Reed
RF Ryan Church
DH Jack Cust
  
SP Chien-Ming Wang
SP Tim Redding
RP Jose Arredondo
RP Seth McClung
CL Matt Capps

How many of those players, just within the last few years, were hot commodities?  It’s a brave new world.
