Phillies/Red Sox All-DL Team

You wouldn't have many moves off the bench (one, and only if you don't mind burning your backup catcher), but you could at least field a major league lineup with players that have appeared on either of the 2011 disabled lists of the Phillies or Red Sox.

And although we did take some minor liberties, every player has appeared in at least one major league game in his career at the position for which he is listed. We would just have to hope no one gets hurt (Phillies in bold; Romero has since been released):
