Put Willingham at cleanup

Twins Manager Ron Gardenhire needs to put Josh Willingham at clean-up.
• Put Willingham between Mauer and Morneau.
• That would protect Willingham better, as he is the hottest Twin right now.
• It would separate the team's two best left-handed batters with a strong right-handed batter.
• It would make it harder for opposing teams later in a game to bring in one pitcher to face Mauer and Moneau, and another to face Willingham.
• Morneau could then be protected with Valencia, or Doumit or Parmelee.
I think this would be the strongest offensive setup for the Twins.
