Neat topic... can't say I've even thought about how I'd play my team if I was actually managing them.

Starting Lineup:
1.) Carl Crawford (LF)
2.) Howie Kendrick (2B)
3.) Ryan Howard (1B)
4.) Victor Martinez (C)
5.) Garrett Anderson (DH)
6.) Edwin Encarnacion (3B)
7.) Troy Tulowitzki (SS)
8.) Jacoby Ellsbury (RF)
9.) Curtis Granderson (CF)

Starting Rotation:
1.) Roy Oswalt
2.) Dustin McGowan
3.) Ben Sheets
4.) Phillip Hughes
5.) Clay Buchholz

Bullpen:
Francisco Rodriguez (Closer)
Mariano Rivera (Setup - 8th Inning)
Rapheal Betancourt (Setup - 7th Inning)
Joe Borowski (Long Reliever/Mop up)
Scot Sheilds (Situational)
Pat Neshek (Situational)

Bench:
Michael Young (Utility Infielder)
Mark Reynolds (Utility Infielder)
Mike Cameron (Utility Outfielder)
Corey Patterson (Pinch Runner)
Dmitri Young (Pinch Hitter)

Man... lots of holes here. Bench is too short, no lefties in the bullpen, no emergency starters, and a weak 5-8 in the lineup. I'd get eaten alive by most teams in my league (of course... I already knew that).

Interestingly, I always thought about doing a fantasy baseball website that simulated real baseball, i.e. managers set batting order, rotation, and possibly made in-game calls. The more I thought about the logistics though, the more I realized it would be very difficult.

Anyway, my team order:
1. Jimmy Rollins - S
2. Alex Rios - R
3. Carlos Beltran - S
4. Nick Markakis - L
5. Aramis Ramirez - R
6. Adrian Gonzales - L
7. Paul Konerko - R
8. Bengie Molina - R
9. Ian Kinsler - R
PH - Josh Hamilton - L, Chris Duncan - L, Michael Bourn -L

Rotation:
1. Cole Hamels - L
2. Felix Hernandez - R
3. Kelvim Escobar - R
4. Rich Hill - L
5. Clay Buchholz - R
Relief - Troy Percival - R, Jason Isringhausen - R
Setup - Tom Gordon - R
Closer - Manny Corpas - R

Hmmm...If this were real baseball I might want a couple lefty relievers :)

Dominate is a verb. Dominant is an adjective.

I made an excel program that simulates baseball, you select your team, your lineup, your pitcher and the opponents - and then the program simulates every at bat based on hitter/pitcher skills. Yes - I am a dork.

1. Grady Sizemore
2. Joe Mauer
3. Matt Holliday
4. Ryan Howard
5. Brandon Phillips
6. Adrian Beltre
7. Miguel Tejada
8. BJ Upton
9. Chris Young
