Leyland needs to move some players around. Here are my thoughts. What are yours? I love Maggs, but his time has passed him over. Leyland! you need to try something new!!!

(1) Raburn 7

(2) Sizemore 4

(3) Caberra 3

(4) Martinez DH or 2

(5) Boesch 9

(6) Peralta 6

(7) Avila 2

(8) Inge 5

(9) Jackson 8

For the record, I think Dirks and Iorg might as well be up by now. If we're going to concede hitting at either 3b w/ Inge or SS with Santiago, might as well have Iorg at SS and hope he doesn't completely fail at the plate.

They need to make the Dirks for Jackson switch. Once Martinez is activated, they need to DL Ordonez until he proves he's physically able to hit like he's capable of hitting of hitting. I think much of his problem right now stems from the ankle injury and the recovery he's trying to go through, just like Sizemore's slow start last year.

1. Dirks CF

2. Sizemore 2B

3. Cabrera 1B

4. Martinez DH

5. Avila C

6. Boesch RF

7. Raburn LF

8. Peralta SS

9. Inge 3B

The Manager fills out the lineup card not Lloyd, Gene or any of the other "coaches". This is Baseball.

Hard to put together a lineup with a bunch of bottom half of the order bats and your best options at 1 & 2 are rookies.

He has not been a ball of fire yet but how would Casper look leading off?

Dirks has been swinging a great bat. Hopefully by the time opposing pitchers figure him out, Jackson will be ready to be called up.

Lets give Cabrera a guaranteed a bat every first inning.

You know what the most awesomeness thing is about this little excercise?

You (everyone) will NEVER be proven wrong. EVER. You have the bestest line up in all of sports history.

Dunno. In 2008 and 2009 his OBP was ok. Hell for the Tigers, it was practically amazing.

I put Boesch there because he is tied for the non-Cabrera team lead in walks. They really don't seem to have anyone who is a good leadoff hitter.

Scott leading off? Oi!

I like the lineup other than that. I guess someone has to start things off. Geez, we really don't have a true lead-off guy, do we?!

You need OBP more than blazing speed at the top, IMHO. I think Guillen would have been a good leadoff option, back in the day. But I'm a rebel that way. I guess you could have had Carl Crawford, but he's kind of pricey! :wink:
