Favorite Team: Mets
Console '07: Nintendo Wii
Console '08: Wii and DS
Favorite Japanese title: (Wii) Jikkyou Powerful Major League 2009
1. Bryce Harper: Dodgers (They cleared room to get him, it's only a matter of time IMO.)
2. Manny Machado: White Sox (LMAO)
3. Dallas Keuchel: Phillies (If they miss out on the previous two, they should upgrade their rotation.)
4. Craig Kimbrel: Phillies (And while they're at it, why not bolster the back end of their bullpen?)
5. Yasmani Grandal: Dodgers (Given the dwindling market, he may go back on a short term deal.)
6. AJ Pollock: Mets (They cannot count on Cespedes returning, and they need a true center fielder.)
7. Marwin Gonzalez: Indians (He'd be a good fit to make up for some losses)
8. Zach Britton: Yankees (After missing out on Robertson, they need him back)
9. David Robertson: Phillies (I would've guessed Angels)
10. Adam Ottavino: Dodgers (bolster that bullpen)
11. Jed Lowrie: A's (comeback szn?)
12. Kelvin Herrera: Red Sox (see 10)
13. Gio Gonzalez: A's (Might be too costly for them but would provide a veteran arm in the rotation)
14. Anibal Sanchez: Nationals
15. Daniel Murphy: Rockies

16. Brian Dozier: Nationals (Need a replacement for Murphy, less contact but more power)
17. DJ Lemahieu: Dodgers (Pesky bat, would be a good add for them to solidify 2B position)
18. Mike Moustakas: Mets (I think they'll dump frazier somewhere so hopefully they get moose)
19. Cody Allen: Braves (unless they want minter to be the closer so soon)
20. Nick Markakis: Braves (why not)
21. Bud Norris: Twins (idk here)
22. Derek Holland: Reds (rotation depth)
23. Brad Brach: Braves (might as well go back)
24. Wade Miley: Nationals (see 22)
25. Adam Jones: Rangers (need a righty bat in the OF)
26. Martin Maldonado: White Sox (maybe a 1 yr deal here)
27. Ervin Santana: Brewers
28. Drew Pomeranz: Padres
29. Justin Wilson: Cubs
30. Asdrubal Cabrera: Rays (no mets pls)
31. Ryan Madson: Nationals
32. Clay Buchholz: Red Sox (Rotation depth and a reunion, so it makes sense)
33. Jose Iglesias: Pirates (Basically Mercer but better defense?)
34. Oliver Perez: Indians (I would say Mets if it weren't for the whole 2010 thing)
35. Adam Warren: Yankees
36. Tony Sipp: Mets (They want a lefty, and he'd be a decent cheap option)

BONUS: Trade Candidates (Predict whether they will stay or which team they will go to)
Nicholas Castellanos: ATL (maybe)
Corey Kluber: LAD
Trevor Bauer: stay
JT Realmuto: HOU
Jose Abreu: stay
Sonny Gray: SD
Jose Martinez: stay

Favorite Japanese title: Don't Own
1. Bryce Harper: Dodgers - 9/$270 (Puig and Kemp trade signalled their confidence.)
2. Manny Machado: Yankees - 8/$240 (I mean it's the Yankees.)
3. Dallas Keuchel: Nationals - 4/$80 (A team that just lost Harper doesn't want Joe Ross and Erick Fedde in their rotation.)
4. Craig Kimbrel: Red Sox - 1/$20 (Kind of a wild guess)
5. Yasmani Grandal: Twins - 1/$15 (Won't sign until Spring Training)
6. AJ Pollock: Phillies - 3/$60 (Oops, we didn't get Harper or Machado. Better call A.J.)
7. Marwin Gonzalez: Rockies - 3/$29 (With the Nationals signing Lowrie, Gonzalez needs to find another suitor. He could play first for the Rockies and provide a veteran presence.)
8. Zach Britton: Yankees - 3/$35 (Yanks make up for not giving him the extra year he wants with a relatively high AAV.)
9. David Robertson: Phillies - 2/$23
10. Adam Ottavino: White Sox - 2/$21 ("Look, Manny, we added a top reliever! Come here!" Shoudn't get more than Robertson.)
11. Jed Lowrie: Nationals - 3/$30 (He deserves more, but the second base market is loaded.)
12. Kelvin Herrera: Dodgers - 2/$14 (Guessing)
13. Gio Gonzalez: Athletics - 3/$28 (A's need a starter. Might as well start here.)
14. Anibal Sanchez: Nationals - 2/$19
15. Daniel Murphy: Rockies - 2/$24
16. Brian Dozier: Brewers - 1/$10 (Makes a lot of sense for them to get a bridge guy.)
17. DJ LeMahieu: Blue Jays - 1/$8 (With guys like Dozier and Kinsler signing, LeMahieu seems to be the odd man out on the 2B market, so he essentially defers his free agency another year. Devon Travis has gotten worse every year of his career, so the Blue Jays sign LeMahieu on the cheap in February and look to flip him at the deadline.)
18. Mike Moustakas: Padres - 2/$14 (Overrated former Royals reunite in San Diego, where they combine for 3.0 WAR)
19. Cody Allen: Braves - 2/$14
20. Nick Markakis: Pirates - 2/$16 (With Polanco out for two months, the Pirates would be wise to add some depth.)
21. Bud Norris: Reds - 2/$10 (Why was he closing games lol? Seems like something the Reds would do.)
22. Derek Holland: Reds - 2/$13 (Yeah, this also seems like something the Reds would do.)
23. Brad Brach: Indians - 1/$7 (Teams are wary of his worsening peripherals, but the Indians need to do something if they want to have any chance in the postseason after likely waltzing to another easy AL Comedy Central title.)
24. Wade Miley: Rockies - 1/$6 (Miley's HR/9 balloons to 1.5 in Coors, and the Rockies ultimately remove him from the rotation with relatively little sunk cost.)
25. Adam Jones: Mets - 2/$15 (After missing out on Pollock, the Mets go for Jones.)
26. Martin Maldonado: Astros - 2/$7 (They don't get Grandal or Realmuto, so they sign Maldonado.)
27. Ervin Santana: Giants - 1/$6
28. Drew Pomeranz: Padres - 1/$3 with significant incentives (No reason other than reunion.)
29. Justin Wilson: Astros - 2/$12 (Need a lefty.)
30. Asdrubal Cabrera: Pirates - 2/$10 (Perfect fit following the departure of Jordy Mercer.)
31. Ryan Madson: Marlins - 1/$2
32. Clay Bucholz: Diamondbacks - 1/$6
33. Jose Iglesias: Brewers - 2/$8 (He's totally worth more than this, and there's a good chance he's starting for Milwaukee in October.)
34. Oliver Perez: Tigers - 1/$5
35. Adam Warren: Angels - 1/$6
36. Tony Sipp: Mets - 1/$5 (LGM said it so it must be true.)

BONUS: Trade Candidates
Nicholas Castellanos: Stays
Corey Kluber: Stays
Trevor Bauer: Stays
JT Realmuto: Dodgers
Jose Abreu: Stays
Sonny Gray: Padres
Jose Martinez: Rays
Zack Greinke: Braves
