BoaB: Well's Bells July Standings, etc.

It's that time again. Halfway through the season, and here's our update. But before we start, I figured I'd compile a couple of interesting teams.

The All-Crash Team: Of course, as you'd expect, this is the worst possible team that safisfies the positional requirements (And I believe also the salary requirement for a team). Players owned in the Well's Bells League are marked with an asterisk.

C: Jeff Mathis (-0.6 WAR), Carlos Corporan (-0.4)

1B: Adam Dunn (-1.6)

2B: Bill Hall (-1.5)*

3B: Brandon Inge (-0.8)

SS: Yuniesky Betancourt (-0.8)

CI: Aubrey Huff (-1.1)

MI: Chone Figgins (-1.4)

OF: Felix Pie (-1.7, the worst in the majors), Tyler Colvin*, Alex Rios, Raul Ibanez (All at -1.0)

U: Dan Johnson (-0.8)*

SP: Armando Gallaraga (-0.8), Brian Matusz, Sean O'Sullivan, Bronson Arroyo, Phil Dumatrait (All at -0.5), Brad Hand (-0.4)

RP: Ryan Franklin (-1.2), Andy Sonnanstine (-0.9), Brandon Lyon, Sean Burnett (Both at -0.7), Matt Capps, Fernando Abad (Both at -0.6)

This team manages to put together an astounding -21.6 WAR! On the better side, we have the best possible team within the positional and salary confinements (At least I believe it's the best possible. If you find a better configuration, post it below).

C: Alex Avila (2.7 WAR), Matt Wieters (2.6)

1B: Adrian Gonzalez (4.5)

2B: Dustin Pedroia (5.5)

3B: Pablo Sandoval (3.2)

SS: Asdrubal Cabrera (3.5)

CI: Joey Votto (4.2)

MI: Danny Espinosa (3.7)

OF: Jose Bautista (6.9), Matt Kemp, Ben Zobrist (Both at 4.8), Jacoby Ellsbury (4.7)

U: Andrew McCutchen (4.6)

SP: Jered Weaver (4.7), Clayton Kershaw (4.0), Daniel Hudson (3.6. As a side note, Hudson has a batting WAR of 1.0, best among pitchers in the majors), Madison Bumgarner, Jordan Zimmerman (Both at 3.3), Justin Masterson (3.2)

RP: Craig Kimbrell, Alexi Ogando (Both at 2.1), Tim Stauffer (1.8), David Robertson, Sean Marshall, Jonny Venters (All at 1.5 WAR)

This team brings in 88.4 WAR for $59.439 million; only 10.1 WAR behind the highest possible WAR team with no salary restraints. Most of that missing 10.1 WAR came from starting pitching, as there were only 2 of the top 6 on the team, and 3 of the top 10. So cheap, valuable starting pitching is definitely tough to find.

Now enough with the fun. On to the standings...
