View Full Version : New Lineup/Rotation

03-21-2006, 12:18 PM

1) Aaron Harang 3.83 ERA
2) Brandon Claussen 4.21 ERA
3) Bronson Arroyo 4.51 ERA
4) Dave Williams 4.41 ERA
5) Eric Milton 6.47 ERA

It looks like we are an ace away from having a "good rotation".... if you add an ace at the top, it makes Harang a decent #2, Claussen an OK #3, Arroyo a good #4, and Williams a good #5. Too bad an ace is hard to find.

Possible Lineups:

Freel 2B
Lopez SS
Griffey CF
Dunn LF
Kearns RF
LaRue C
Encarnacion 3B
Aurilia/Hatteberg 1B

Thats what my lineup would be, with Denorfia getting a good amount of ABs sending Dunn to 1B. Honestly, it's not that bad of a lineup if Kearns can put up solid numbers. That is, if Womack is not in the lineup. He will hurt our run production severely (IMO) if he leads off a bunch of games this year.

too bad the lineup will probably look more like:

womack 2b
lopez ss
jr. cf
aurilia 3b
dunn lf
hatteberg 1b
kearns rf
valentin c

i would do the following:

freel cf
lopez ss
dunn 1b
jr. lf
encarnacion 3b
kearns rf
aurilia 2b
larue c

i hate to start aurilia, but he is about the best option right now if you put freel in the OF. I haven't watched denorfia enough to say I would put him in the OF on a daily basis. I also wouldn't mind putting jr. in the 3rd slot and dunn 4th.

Don't worry. According to Mercker Milton will win us 17 games this year.
