I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

Somehow I've been able to assemble this squad in my 24 team dynasty. Obviously it can't quite compete against the best of the best but it's pretty nice. And thus it's my dream team. My MLB pitching is a little thin (no #5 starter) but the pipeline is setup at most positions.

C - Jesus Montero
1B - Chris Marrero
2B - Jemile Weeks
SS - Adrian Cardenas
3B -
LF - Zach Collier
CF - Aaron Hicks
RF - Ryan Westmoreland
DH - Tyler Flowers, Max Ramirez, Adam Moore

Ace - Jordan Zimmerman
SP2 - Jarrod Parker
SP3 - Kyle Drabek
SP4 - Martin Perez
SP5 - (Balester, Odorizzi, or Danny Gutierrez)

Setup - James McDonald
Closer - Bobby Parnell

C: Weiters

2b: Emaus
SS: T. Beckham
3B: Alvarez
LF: Heyward
