The Final Countdown: T-minus Baird

Well, I lied.  It's not really the final countdown.  I figured there'd be, maybe 5 or 6 Allard Baird players left on the 40-man roster.  Not so:

Pitchers

Henry Barrera  #35  RP

Luke Hochevar  #44  SP (2006 draft)

Dusty Hughes  #31  RP

Blake Wood  #38  RP (2006 draft)

Everett Teaford #  RP  (2006 draft)

Position Players

Mike Aviles  #30  2B (Hard to believe.  It was even rumored that other teams had interest - but he's still around.)

Billy Butler  #16  1B

Kila Ka'aihue  #25  1B

Jeff Bianchi #15 SS

Jarrod Dyson  #1  CF (2006 draft)

Alex Gordon  #4  LF (although, Alex Gordon "3B" is long gone)

Mitch Maier  #12  CF

Derrick Robinson  LF (2006 draft)

--any mistakes, please advise--

(Note: 2006 draftees are thought to be drafted at Ladnier's discretion, rather than Moore's.  Some conspiracy theorists might suggest otherwise.  For instance: Jarrod Dyson - Did Moore not whisper that name into Ladnier's ear near the end of the draft?)

That makes 13 players, 5 of which are from the 2006 draft, so AT LEAST 8 non-Moore players remain.  This number could shrink substantially in the spring if Maier, Kila, Dyson, Barrera, and/or Hughes don't remain.
