Hmmm, I looked at this list and I couldn't figure why Kile would have this
list; the only common factor appears to be large city, but there are plenty of
large-city teams not on this list; there are some in the AL, some in the NL;
there are some on the East Coast, some on the West Coast, and one in the
center; there are some good teams and some bad teams.  Anybody would have any
idea why Kile selected these six?

Probably those are the teams he (and his agent) decided he would most
likely be traded to if there was a salary dump.

The Cardinals may have let him only pick 6, hence why you don't see
Texas or Houston or the Dodgers.

1)  He doesn't like the American League.
    (Thus no trade to the Angels or White Sox, but trades to
     the Dodgers or the Cubbies are fine.)

2)  He hates New York.  Paging John Rocker, paging John Rocker.

3)  He can't afford to buy a house in the Bay Area?  :-)
    (and he knows that the A's aren't going to trade for
     high-salaried players.)

He should have submitted such a list to his agent with "COLORADO" written
on it when he became a free agent.
