If you're a BP person, that's right, it's time for HACKING MASS! For those not familiar with the exercise, BP runs a contest yearly for you to assemble by Easter the worst lineup of a player at every position and two non-Rockies starters. Points aren't just accumulated for sucktitude--you have to play as well. Picking up Kelly Stinnett, in other words, will do you no good.

Last year I managed to be one of about 4 people to pick Josh Towers, who was one of the 3 worst pitchers in the league....and still managed to finish in the bottom 3% thanks to the great picks of Hanley Ramirez, Mark Teahen and Dan Uggla. Pure genius. On that note, here is The Official Gowanus HACKING MASS Team:

C: Brad Ausmus
1B: Ryan Shealy
2B: Luis Castillo
3B: Jose Castillo
SS: Tony Pena, Jr.
LF: Chris Duncan
CF: Juan Pierre
RF: Shawn Green
SP: Kyle Lohse
SP: Carlos Silva

Let's hear from some of the other pinheads with their squads. Worst (best?) team in the league gets beer from the others.

Catcher Ben Molina
First Base Dmitri Young
Second Base Aaron Hill
Third Base Melvin Mora
Shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt
Left Field Aubrey Huff
Center Field Nook Logan
Right Field Juan Encarnacion
Pitcher 1 Mark Mulder
Pitcher 2 Steve Trachsel

It's a conservative team--I went more for guaranteed playing time than guaranteed suckitude
