The Worst Team Money Can Buy

Just a friendly reminder that things could always be worse. Here's an entire roster of the worst of the worst MLB FA. (All stats based on last 3 years) (Baseball-reference is the greatest thing ever! that FA-only tool is incredible!)

1. Jeff Davanon, RF: 87 OPS+, 252/350/361 (BA/OBP/SLG)
2. Corey Patterson, CF: 76 OPS+, 254/291/393
3. Rondell White, LF: 89 OPS+, 267/303/416
4. Pedro Feliz, 3B: 81 OPS+ 249/289/423
5. Darin Erstad, 1B: 78 OPS+, 260/316/356
6. Jose Molina, C: 65 OPS+, 242/278/353
7. Miguel Cairo, 2B: 62 OPS+, 248/293/324
8. Neifi Perez, SS: 62 OPS+, 257/280/353

Wow, what a lineup of suck!

Bench:
Paul Bako, C, 40 OPS+, 212/281/249
Robert Fick, 1B, 79 OPS+, 254/325/339
Ramon Martinez, 2B, 59 OPS+, 252/302/312
Abe Nunez, 2B, 65 OPS+, 248/323/313
Jerry Hairson, OF, 62 OPS+, 231/301/323

Lots of utility, but even John Stuart Mill would cry. Fick doesn't get the starting nod because Erstad has played more.

Rotation:
Russ Ortiz, 7-22, 6.94
Eric Milton, 16-27, 5.83
Kip Wells, 17-40, 5.51
Tony Armas, 20-24, 5.29
Mark Redman, 18-29, 5.54

Bullpen:
Armando Benitez, Closer, 4.55
Jorge Julio, SU, 5.14
Jeremy Affeldt, LH SU, 5.20
Jose Mesa, MR, 5.14
Antonio Alfonseca, MR, 5.32
Brian Mohler, Long/Swing, 5.19
Elmer Dessens, Long/Swing, 4.69

Ouch.

I wonder how many games this team would win. It certainly wouldn't cost much, no more than $20 million. It'd definitely be historically bad!
