Who would you build around?

This is just something I have been thinking about and I’m curious as to what other bloggers think about this. If you could start your with one player. Who would be the guy you would build your team around? Would you start off with a young Ace like Tim Lincecum. Somebody that can start every five days and shut the other team down. Maybe you want a star shortstop like Derek Jeter. Someone that can hit and give you a 100% day in and day out. Maybe you want a centerfielder like Aaron Rowand that goes balls out on defense. You can even go with a monster swinger like Ryan Howard. He can spark your offense and get a ton of RBI’s. There is so many ways you can go with this. I’m just curious to see what bloggers would go with what guys to start a team and build around them. I look forward to your comments.

John Millers thoughts on the Giants Spring Training..

Jon Miller the Giants announcer and ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball announcer was on the radio talking about the Giants Spring Training. He said the Giants had their first inter-squad game today and it was Randy Johnson against Barry Zito. Johnson faced Buster Posey and had him in an 0-2 hole

Miller thinks Fred Lewis is going to hit well this season. Said Lewis was playing hurt most of last season and still had a decent bat. He said the only way Lewis isn’t going to hit is if the Giants sign Manny.
 
Last year the Giants wanted to mix in as many Giants as possible to see what they got. This year they want to be completive and hope the good players emerge and next season they wanted to try to win the division. Miller said that if the Giants did get Manny then all of a sudden they are the favorite to win the NL West this year. He does think Manny will end up with the Dodgers as well. Manny loves the LA lifestyle. Don’t worry Giants fans there is still hope until his signing with the Dodgers is official.
