We've covered free agents from Abreu to Zaun and certain names have come up a bunch - Ibanez, Furcal, Dunn - what about the names that haven't come up? None of these guys are Type A or Type B free agents. But maybe they could be of use.
LH corner OF
Eric Hinske - "Could someone please tell me what the difference is between me and Mark Teahen?"
Cliff Floyd - Floyd won't be there all the time, but if that gives both Pie and Fukudome a chance, is that all bad?
Brad Wilkerson - "Hey, I was once traded for the guy that was traded for Alex Rodriguez. Um, I was also DFA'd last year."
LH speedy IF
Cesar Izturis - "So, last year I was just as valuable as Ryan Theriot, oh, and I also switch-hit and steal bases without getting caught and play some of the best SS defense in the game, which, I don't know, if you believe Lou, might have helped in the playoffs."
Felipe Lopez - His defense is atrocious, so playing Lopez at SS would be like playing Ryan Theriot, except a switch-hitter with better odds of repeating a year of helpful hitting.
Nick Punto - See "Piranha."
Pedro Martinez - "I was the original Tim Lincecum!"
Mark Mulder - Let Mulder be a placeholder name for all the injured pitchers coming back from Kris Benson to Jason Jennings. Any of them stand out (besides Freddy Garcia whom we've talked about quite a bit?)
Anyone else have any ideas?
