Available Player Dream Team

Just for fun – let’s say you’re a GM with a ton of money to spend and a quality farm system.  You want to build the best 2009 team possible.  What would it look like?  Here’s my take:

C – Gerald Laird
1B – Mark Teixeira
2B – Orlando Hudson
SS – Rafael Furcal
3B – Adrian Beltre
LF – Manny Ramirez
CF – Marlon Byrd
RF – Matt Holliday
DH – Aubrey Huff

SP – C.C. Sabathia
SP – Jake Peavy
SP – Derek Lowe
SP – A.J. Burnett
SP – Ryan Dempster

RP – Francisco Rodriguez
RP – Brian Fuentes
RP – Huston Street

I’m hoping the infield defense would make up for the outfield.  I’d have to trade for Laird, Beltre, Byrd, Holliday, Huff, Peavy, and Street.  Does any team have the young players to pull that off?  After that I’d have to spend $180MM on ten free agents…to cover their 2009 salaries alone.

Let’s see your dream teams in the comments…all free agents are fair game, plus players who have been mentioned in legitimate trade rumors.
