Just because I'm bored...

If you break down MLB players by the state they played high school ball, here is the Georgia team.

C - Brian McCann
1B - Russell Branyan
2B - Brandon Phillips
SS - Stephen Drew
3B - Gordon Beckham
OF - Marlon Byrd
OF - Nick Markakis
OF - Colby Rasmus
OF - Dexter Fowler
OF - JD Drew
OF - Jason Heyward
OF - Mike Cameron
IF - Stephen Drew
IF - Adam Everett
C - Buster Posey

SP - Adam Wainwright
SP - Tim Hudson
SP - Edwin Jackson
SP - Jake Westbrook
SP - Micah Owings

RP - Jonathan Broxton
RP - Matt Capps
RP - Kyle Farsnworth
RP - Mitchell Boggs
RP - Jason Bulger

Obviously a strong rotation, and here is how I would do the order:

CF - Fowler
RF - Markakis
2B - Phillips
C - McCann
LF - Byrd
1B - Posey
DH - Heyward/Rasmus
3B - Beckham
SS - S. Drew

*too many first basemen so someone has to play out of position
