Best All Lefty Divisional Lineup?

Here are the rules, you can use one division (AL East, NL West etc) you can choose the division, but you have to make a starting line up using all lefties in the division (hitting and pitching).

Update:

If you must, switch hitters are okay, but only consider them from the left side (their numbers when hitting on the left side against rightys.)

Update 2:

My Example:

AL East

C: Matt Weiters (switch)

1B: Adrian Gonzalez

2B: Robinson Cano

3B: Mark Teixeira (switch, played 15 games at 3B in Texas)

SS: Ben Zobrist (switch, has played SS)

OF: Curtis Granderson

OF: Jacoby Ellsbury

OF: Carl Crawford

SP: CC Sabathia

SP: David Price

SP: John Lester

SP: Ricky Romero

SP: Erik Bedard

CL: Brett Cecil (college closer)

    Here are my teams just using lefty hitters.

    AL East, Central, West

    1B: Adrian Gonzalez, Eric Hosmer, Mitch Moreland

    2B: Robinson Cano, Jason Kipnis, Dustin Ackley

    SS: Blake Davis, *Asdrubal Cabrerra, Eric Sogard

    3B: Eric Chavez, Lonnie Chisenhall, Kyle Seager

    LF: Bret Gardner, Alex Gordon, Josh Hamilton

    CF: Jacoby Ellsbury, Denard Spann, Endy Chavez

    RF: Nick Markakis, Jason Kubel, Ichiro

    SP: C.C. Sabathia, Mark Buerhle, C.J. Wilson

    CL: Mike Gonzalez, Chris Sale, Brian Fuentes

    NL East, Central, West

    C: Brian McCann, George Kottares, Miguel Montero

    1B: Freddie Freeman, Prince Fielder, Todd Helton

    2B: Chase Utley, Skip Schumaker, Kelly Johnson

    SS: Alex Cora, Craig Counsell, Stephen Drew

    3B: Greg Dobbs, Danield Descalso, Ian Stewart

    LF: Logan Morrison, Alex Presley, Carlos Gonzalez

    CF: Michael Bourn, Nyjer Morgan, Will Venable

    RF: Jason Heyward, Jay Bruce, Andre Eithier

    SP: Cole Hamels, Jaime Garcia, Clayton Kershaw

    CL: Jonny Venters, Sean Marshall, Jeremy Affledt

    *I used a switch hitter because no lefty hitters played the position in the divsion

    There's not a lot of good lefty hitting second basemen and shortstops.

    edit: Whoops, just read the rules to only pick one division. I guess I'll go with the NL East barely over the AL East mainly because of Brian McCann and Jonny Venters.
