Angles Lineup

Postby Chilly » Fri Jan 13, 2012 10:31 am

They have amazing depth as of now. Trying to figure out who will be starting where at the beginning of the year and end of the year.

Current (according to CBS Sports)
C - Mathis
1B - Pujols
2B - Kendrick
SS - Aybar
3B - Callaspo
LF - Wells
CF - Bourjos
RF - Hunter
DH - Abreu

This leaves the following guys without a starting position;
Trumbo, Morales, Izturis, and Trout.

When Trumbo and Morales get healthy, where will they play? When will Trout be called up? How is this all going to play out and who do you see starting at various points in the season?

I think you're going to see some Ianetta behind the dish, you know how the Sciosciapath operates.

The only odd man out of the four you listed is Trumbo.
Despite not demanding a trade, Abreu remarked that he would welcome a trade out of DisneyLanaheim in December.
That would open up some more DH time for Kendrys
Izturis? What are you expecting from a 31 year old utility player? Playoffs!?!

Unless Trumbo can handle third (I'd start using emoticons to express my joy), he doesn't really have any place to play.

I do think that outfield will be an incessant carousel of older-paids and younger&betters.

I doubt that the OF is going to be very predictable or steady.

Wells was terrible last year; if he is hitting around .200 over an extended amount of time again, he may get benched permanently.
Hunter is getting old, but he still manages to hit 20+ HR's every year... His defense dropped a bit though, last year, as did his batting average. His speed has been gone for several years. Even though he's making close to $20 million, I think he may get some extra days off.
Abreu? More like A-blah-u. He's gonna be 38 years old this season and hit .253 with 8 HR's last year. I can't fathom him being in the lineup over either Morales or Trumbo.

Personally I think they'll switch Trumbo, Pujols, and Morales between 1B and DH, and that they'll switch Trumbo in for Wells and Hunter in the OF every now and then to give them a breather. I can't imagine Abreu playing over Trumbo consistently.
