Imagine a world where there is no such thing as free agency. This is a world where arbitration does not exist, and there are no such things as trades. The only way to acquire players is through the First Year Player Draft or through the international free agent market. Would the Yankees and Red Sox still be the dominant teams? Would the Nationals or Royals actually be able to compete? Back by popular demand is the return of the Hypothetical Major League Baseball (HMBL). During the 2008 season, the Cleveland Indians reigned, but it is a whole new year and fresh new faces in baseball. Oh yeah, I should probably mention that YOU get to choose the winner (last year I chose the winner myself). It is time for you to VOTE for the Hypothetical Major League Baseball American League West Division Winner. Check out the HMBL Rosters and use them to vote vote vote.
