Replace Clement and Olmedo with Doumit and Plouffe, you could be looking at your opening day lineup.

I'm starting to change my mind. While I believe that he could very well be a GG CF, I no longer think his bat is going to be so great that we are looking at a perrenial All Star. Maybe that's why they seem to be willing to let him earn a job out of ST.
Bet there's no way they'd let Arcia come up before June. That is, of course, if he's ready this year at all.

Is Eddie Ro in camp as a non-roster invite or are they just playing him as an "extra player" before the minor-league games start?
