My Changes

Carlos Beltran, Cole Hamels, Brian Fuentes, Brian McCann, Aaron Rowand, Freddy Sanchez, and Derrek Lee are out

Biggest Problems
Completely overhauling LaRussa’s jacked up team. Finding a way to get all five shortstops into the game because they all deserve it.

My Snubs
Ryan Howard, Derrek Lee, Brandon Phillips, Aaron Rowand, Carlos Beltran, and Adam Dunn
Cole Hamels, Derek Lowe, Jason Isringhausen, and Brandon Webb
