Programming Note

I'm moving this weekend, so what with cables and the intraweb and all that stuff, I won't have an update on Monday (at least). So here's what I want you to do: come up with an all-star team of the players you root for even though they aren't Nats or whatever other team you like. Active major-leaguers only. Here's my team, no Nats or Cardinals.

C: Victor Martinez (CLE)
1B: Hee Seop Choi (LAD)
2B: Marcus Giles (ATL)
SS: Miguel Tejada (BAL)
3B: Aubrey Huff (TB)
LF: Eli Marrero (KC)
CF: Dave Roberts (SD)
RF: Lance Berkman (HOU)

Greg Maddux (CHC)
Jose Lima (KC)
David Wells (BOS)
Josh Towers (TOR)
Orlando Hernandez (CWS)

Brad Lidge (HOU)
Juan Cruz (OAK)
Shigetosi Hasegawa (SEA)

Bench (Honorable Mention)
Placido Polanco (PHI)
Vernon Wells (TOR)
Julio Franco (ATL)

Bobby Cox (ATL)

How 'bout you?
