Expensive mediocrity

What kind of crappy team can you come up with if you assemble a team from all of MLB?  Apparently one with a payroll higher than the Yankees, and how did it fare (in high-tech simulated seasons)?

Our team was mediocre. We just spent nearly $1 billion, and we had trouble cracking .500. Our average record over 10 replays? 77-85.

  1. They did put the team in the AL East as the D-Rays, they probably would do a bit better somewhere like the NL Central.

  2. Yeah, I was thinking that I would like to see the difference (if significant) between replacing the Rays and, say, the Cardinals or the Padres.
