    New Lineup/Rotation

    Rotation:

    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.
    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.
