Cloonan is gonna have to shorten up his swing a little if he wants to hit that high in the order. Too big and loopy, IMO - hopefully, he's working on that. Given Crosbie was noted by Lance for his plate discipline and grinding out AB's, maybe he can fit there in the 2 slot.Lance what do you think of this?
1B Del Castillo
Unless Quinones and/or Amditis is smashing the ball, I don't see having them in the lineup at the same time. I think one of Rivera, Toral, Gil, or even Gates might be the DH...if Del Castillo is playing 1B as he is in your lineup...otherwise, he's your DH.
One thing I think I like (will hopefully prove out when we actually start playing), is that we have some flexibility with the lineup. We can move guys around until we find a slot they're comfortable hitting in. We also seem to have enough positional versatility to try different things in the field to see what works best.
