Best Team Money Can Buy: Full Throttle

We referenced in our recent post on The Best Team Money can Buy that we weren't going to purchase an entire 25-man roster. Sorry, I couldn't resist. Here is our money-is-no-object best team money can buy... Keep in mind, some guys have signed... So, while I would love to have Chone Figgins at 3rd base, he's not available anymore...

C: Yorvit Torrealba
1b: Nick Johnson
2b: Felipe Lopez
SS: Orlando Cabrera
3b: Adrian Beltre
LF: Matt Holliday
CF: Mike Cameron
RF: Vladimir Guerrero

Bench: Xavier Nady. RF, LF, 1b
Bench: Coco Crisp, OF
Bench: Rob Quinlan, IF/OF
Bench: Bobby Crosby, IF
Bench: Garret Anderson, LF
Bench: Bengie Molina, C

SP: John Lackey
SP: Aroldis Chapman
SP: Ben Sheets
SP: Joel Pineiro
SP: Jon Garland

RP: Kelvim Escobar
RP: Rich Hill
RP: Chan Ho Park
RP: Kiko Calero
RP: Mike Gonzalez
RP: Jose Valverde

I'm sure some of my selections are pretty terrible, and I'm hoping the comments section reflects that. I mean looking at Sheets, Escobar, Nick Johnson, Nady, and Crosby makes me think that I will need to have Dr. Timothy Kremchek on staff. Plus, we'll need a reliable shuttle to/from Triple-A for replacement starters, who could end up being guys like Daniel Cabrera, Shawn Hill, Brett Tomko... heck maybe even Kris Benson & Mark Prior.
