3B: Manny Machado
SS: JJ Hardy
LF: David Lough
CF: Adam Jones
RF: Nick Markakis
DH: Nelson Cruz

BC: Steve Clevenger

Patton moves in for De La Cruz when he comes off of suspension.

I think it's a bit early for predictions like these because we have so many variables that will work themselves out by opening day, but I think your prediction is probably the closest yet.

Regardless, it's fun to do this before the first pitch of the exhibition opener.

I know that as fans the prognostications of lineups and such is all part of the scenario. I would like the players to show a little of their abilities and also to see what injuries crop up before making out lineups and rosters.

I would also add that some of these rosters that we have seen put forth do not take into account the Forty Man roster moves that would make them even possible. In the interest of doing the twenty-five they should also do the Forty because to bring in a Casilla, Young, Aceves, Addition, De Jesus, Phelps, Berry, Borbon, or Paul a corresponding Forty Man Roster move would have to be made.

That's a good point. I'm hoping that even some of these guys that won't make the team will still have good springs so we can trade them for International draft pool money to compensate for the loss of our three draft picks.

I know we disagree with the value of an eight man BP, but I hope we start the season with just seven. IMO we have some legitimate players for the bench that we could that roster spot for.
