Make a Move - ESPN Fantasy Baseball

Yesterday we looked at the top Fantasy Baseball players available in the majority of Yahoo leagues and ended up with a list of 80 players with at least 200 points.  Today we are looking at ESPN free agents and the list has shrunk to just 51 players, which was expected, even with the extra day for players to reach our point goal.

Jason Marquis is the only player in both Yahoo and ESPN top 10 available free agents.  He is worth owning in all league formats and should be added to any rotation that has been hit by injuries or poor performances.  Yahoo had 5 outfielders in their top 10 and ESPN has 5 pitchers.
