This is it. After three segments, this is the final predicted roster as I see it. I’m not going to ramble on here about why I decided on a certain player and such, you can read them all here:

So, without further ado …

Starting Rotation

  1. Tim Hudson – age 35 – $9M
  2. Jair Jurrjens – age 25 – Arbitration. My guess would be around $4-6M
  3. Tommy Hanson – age 24 – $0.45M – $0.50M
  4. Brandon Beachy – age 24 – $0.410M – $0.45M
  5. Julio Teheran – age 20 – league minimum

Lineup (in no order)

C – Brian McCann
1B – Freddie Freeman
2B – Dan Uggla
SS – Jose ReyesJ.J. Hardy, Jimmy Rollins, Gonzalez and then Pastornicky, in that order.
3B – Chipper Jones
CF – Michael Bourn
RF – Jason Heyward
LF – Martin PradoCarlos Beltran, Stefan Gartrellin that order.

Relief Corps

CL – Craig Kimbrel
SU – Jonny Venters
MR – Eric O’Flaherty
MR – Kris Medlen
MR – Anthony Varvaro or Peter Moylan
MR – Arodys Vizcaino
LR – Cristhian Martinez

What do you think? Give me your arguments on why or why not I’m wrong.
