    Freel
    Lopez
    Jr.
    Dunn
    Pena
    Kearns
    Encarnacion
    LaRue

    That's what I expect to see at this point.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I hope you're right my man. Good Lord that lineup has some pop!

    Re: who's the best 9?

    Womack 2b
    Lopez ss
    Griffey cf
    Pena lf
    Dunn 1b
    Kearns rf
    Encarnacion 3b
    LaRue c

    Mostly the same as above. However, my belief is that since Narron keeps talking about Freel playing all over the field, Womack is going to end up starting at 2b with Freel filling in all over the place and getting plenty of PT. I thought that putting Pena in between Dunn and Griffey might be a good idea to split up the left handers. Depending on how they are going, Kearns could be put in the clean up spot also.

    Re: who's the best 9?

    What I want to see:

    2B Freel
    SS Lopez
    CF Griffey
    1B Dunn
    RF Kearns
    LF Pena
    3B Encarnacion
    C Valentin/LaRue (yes, in a platoon)

    What we'll probably see for the majority of the season:

    2B Womack
    SS Lopez
    CF Griffey
    LF Dunn
    RF Kearns
    3B Aurillia
    1B Hatteberg
    C LaRue

    I think you're probably right on the "will be" except for Encarnacion - I think he's earning his spot. I think we'll see a regular movement of Aurillia, Freel and Womack throughout the year.
