I know that the MLB baseball season is far from over...but I heard today Austin Kearns was shipped to Zona. So keeping that in mind I am going to put all of you out there in the GM position for your favorite team. Below you will find a list of the Class of 2009, the current list of players that are eligible for free agency after this season. Your job? Tell me if you would make any moves for your team this year or tell me whom you would like to go after to either fortify your team if it is strong already or help build it up if you think it sucks. Get at it, and let's see what everyone out there is thinking. Sorry I haven't posted in a while...I have rheumatoid arthritis and my health has even forced me to put my sports-talk show on hiatus since April. But I'm feeling much better now and it is time to get back to work! It's great to be back with the community again...I missed you guys!
