Restoring the rosters

SI Metman

Stephen Cannella on SI.com recieved a challenge to restore the 30 MLB teams to their original rosters without trades or free agency. All players go to the first team they signed with including foreign free agents (so Kaz can still be a Met).

Pretty interesting to look at. Of course he did miss out on Matsui and Paul Wilson when doing the Mets.

And why not put Fonzie on second?

Mets
1B: ???
2B: ???
3B: David Wright, Edgardo Alfonzo
SS: Jose Reyes
C: Vance Wilson, Jason Phillips
LF: Terrence Long
CF: Preston Wilson, Timo Perez
RF: Jeromy Burnitz, Jay Payton
SP: A.J. Burnett, Scott Kazmir
RP: Jason Isringhausen, Octavio Dotel, Scott Sauerbeck, Pete Walker, Tyler Walker, Guillermo Mota, Hector Carrasco

Outside of the outfield, he generally doesn't seem to be too willing to move a player away from the position he's currently assigned to, even if he's got plenty of experience over there and there's currently a void. Why not Jason Phillips at first?

You can round out the rotation with Paul Wilson, Jae Seo, and somebody.

Aaron Heilman could go in the rotation.
