The Best Team in Baseball in 2009 (WAR Spreadsheet)

27

I'm aggressively trying to fix my sleep cycle, and that means staying up all night. Anyway, I made a WAR spreadsheet using the best player at every position in 2009 per PECOTA. I used PECOTA for PA, filling in the extra spots (I never went over projected PA) with the second best player at the position. PECOTA also used for EqOBP, EqSLG and EqBRR. CHONE used for defense. Relievers are anyone projected to get 20%+ time relieving. This is just for fun, nothing serious. The team is at the 153 win talent level with a 100% chance at winning more than 101 games. And they're worth 482 million dollars. Course, who knows how much they'd destroy beyond that just for having watered down the league. Roster: C - Matt Wieters (Joe Mauer) 1B - Albert Pujols (Lance Berkman) 2B - Chase Utley (Kelly Johnson) 3B - David Wright (Chipper Jones) SS - Hanley Ramirez (Jose Reyes) LF - Ryan Braun (Nate McLouth) CF - Carlos Beltran (Nate McLouth) RF - Grady Sizemore (Nate McLouth) SP1 - Brandon Webb SP2 - C.C. Sabathia SP3 - Johan Santana SP4 - Tim Lincecum SP5 - Dan Haren CL - Mariano Rivera SU - Francisco Rodriguez LOOGY - Joe Nathan MR - Jonathan Papelbon MR - Joakim Soria MR - Jonath Broxton
