The Most Valuable Baseball Teams for Fantasy Baseball in 2014

The teams with the best fantasy players (or best teams on paper) don't always win the World Series, but if they did, this would be the ranking of the best teams heading into this season! 

My system is this: I gave players auction values and then added them up for their respective teams. If a player didn't seem draftable or even worth $1 in a MLB (not AL or NL only) fantasy draft then he was not included. A player's dollar value is in parentheses to the right of their name. Their positions are where I project them to start on Opening Day as of right now.
