Thread: Revised opening day lineup

  1. #41
    I've jumped the gun too many times already on Buxton. He is still so young, I want to see how he does in AA before I say anymore about the kid. Holding him to Trouts path to the big leagues isn't fair. I'd be happy if it was this year and hopeful it happens in 2015. Hicks needs to step up and claim the job.

    Which is fine, both strategies have their merits. But I do not see a scenario where Buxton is in Minnesota before September.
    Hitting around .400 in AA and Willingham and Presley get injured in early August and the Twins are in contention.

    I would say an OPS of 1000 or higher in AA, and Willingham or Presley injured in August, and Buxton is the guy.

    Well, since Burl Ives and Sheriff Andy are still in charge, here's my guess:

    SP Corriea

    CF Pressly
    2B Dozier
    1B Mauer
    LF Willingham
    DH Suzuki
    3B Plouffe
    RF Arcia
    C Fryer
    SS Florimon

    UTIL Beredsford
    1B/DH Collabello
    RF/DH Parmelee
    OF Hicks

    What it should be:

    DH Kubel/Plouffe
    LF Willingham
    CF Hicks
    RF Arcia
    C Pinto
    1B Mauer
    2B Dozier
    3B Sano
    SS Florimon or Drew (if hell freezes over)

    What it will be:

    DH Kubel
    LF Willingham
    CF Presley
    RF Arcia
    C Suzuki
    1B Mauer
    2B Dozier
    3B Plouffe
