Drafting the Perfect Baseball Team for 2012, Using My List of Players

Every year, I join MLB.com and set up a 12-team league, where I try and create the best team from a preset list of players that I want to pick. For the most part, I do get the players I want, and it usually works out well, in fact, last year, thanks to Adrian Gonzalez, my first-round pick, I made it to the postseason for the first time, although I lost in the league championship.

This year, I have compiled my "Billy Beane" list, or the players that I would draft in a perfect world, in the hopes that my team, the Nagoya Yowanes, make a second consecutive championship appearance.

The draft is 16 rounds, and each player chosen is from MLB.com's top 200 player list. Pitchers are replaced with pitching staffs, so for instance, I will choose two pitching staffs, like the Phillies and the Rangers, rather than individual pitchers, which most other leagues do.

Without further ado, I give you some players that you should consider drafting in order to build that championship-caliber fantasy baseball club, based on who I'd draft.
