El Cheapo: The Draw

Alright, time to clear up a few pieces of business before proceeding with the break. First, there are a couple of you who need to pay. Let's get that done, OK? I'm sure there would be a few people who would be happy to see the Yankees go up for grabs again.

Second, I hate to say it, but none of you picked the teams that would have gotten a free jersey card. Let's review.
Card #1 portrays a likely first-ballot Hall of Famer.
That's Craig Biggio. You'd have to be a jerk not to vote for him.

Card #2 portrays a guy who has a shot at making the Hall of Fame.
That's Mike Piazza in a Mets uniform. I think he deserves it, but we'll see.

Card #3 portrays a pair of guys who have an outside shot of making the Hall of Fame.
That would be Josh Beckett and Roy Oswalt. Both are legitimate contenders, but need to do a lot more of what they're doing in the eyes of the crusty voters.
(And to show all the evidence, here's a link to the lot these came from.)

And finally, here's the randomization for everyone who chose a bonus team.

Plugging that order into the empty slots gives us this lineup:
1. Angels - BS
2. Athletics - Thorzul
3. Rangers - The Diamond King
4. Mariners - Thorzul
5. White Sox - Jeff Wilk
6. Indians - BS
7. Royals - BS
8. Twins - BS
9. Tigers - sewingmachineguy
10. Red Sox - Thorzul
11. Yankees - The Diamond King
12. Blue Jays - D a V e
13. Orioles - commishbob
14. Rays - BS
15. Cubs - Thorzul
16. Cardinals - IkesCards
17. Brewers - JWals
18. Pirates - BS
19. Astros - jaybarkerfan
20. Reds - gcrl
21. Padres - BS
22. Diamondbacks - BS
23. Dodgers - gcrl
24. Giants - BS
25. Rockies - daddyohoho
26. Braves - jaybarkerfan
27. Nationals/Expos - BS
28. Mets - commishbob
29. Phillies - daddyohoho
30. Marlins - IkesCards

Feel free to propose trades in the comments. Hopefully I'll get through sorting the cards this week and start posting some of the spoils. Good luck!
