Like Barry Bonds, Baseball Widow hasn't retired; she's just not playing.

These Fellas Made the Short List

Jose Reyes (New York Mets)
Derek Jeter (New York Yankees)
Chris Woodward (Toronto)
Alex Rodriguez (New York Yankees)
Rafael Furcal (Atlanta)

Before you point out that A-Rod no longer plays shortstop, remember that this is a fantasy team, so he's eligible for the spot.

Furky is another one of those guys whose heart earned him a roster spot. Have you ever seen him round third and head home when there's another guy behind him? He looks back over his shoulder slightly, and windmills his arm to encourage his teammate home. It's one of the goofiest things that any major league player does, and it's one of the greatest. Baseball Widow can't wait until the first time she sees it on TBS this season.
