Id switch Eaton and Grandal but it probably wont matter too much

I personally don't like Grandal in the middle of the order, not that Abreu should really be hitting there either right now.

I was looking up Cease's batting stats just for the hell of it and apparently, in 31 career starts, he's managed to never start in an NL park.

Rick flew out to Cincinnati, by the looks of the lineup card, he may have written it.

 

 

Considering who is available and it's in an NL park, this is about as good as it gets.  Could move a guy or two around, but it wouldn't make a huge difference.

That's pretty impressive considering last years slate vs nl central.

Vaughn in LF, Garcia in CF, Madrigal batting 2nd

This is actually a pretty decent lineup.

Yeah he seems like the next guy to go on IL the way he has looked.

Last year had all DHs.. meaning if he started at an away game, he still wouldnt have hit

Madrigal is having a better season than Tommy LaStella. Go figure.

Love the April MVP awards. He has been struggling with a back injury.

Jackie Bradley Jr has had a better season than Eloy Jimenez, blew me away didn't expect that.

Both have a 0.0 WAR so not really better.

And he is now out for supposedly an extended period. That was a nice non signing.

Which is why I was surprised they brought up Mendick. You basically have 4 OF (including Eaton) on the roster + Lamb who never played OF before this year.

Agreed. I feared Tony being Tony with Lamb in LF and/or other shenanigan's. 

I’d rather have Hamilton in CF

I told you before all the injuries you will be seeing guys play in places they never played under Tony. But Lamb and Vaughn trying LF does at least make some sense.

This speaks volumes about what the FO really thinks of the OF prospects already in the org.

I like him as a defensive replacement, can pinch run as well. Wouldn’t mind a start 1 or 2 a week while Robert is out

When Engel returns, want him as the regular CFer (80% of starts).

Garcia, Mendick, Collins and Hamilton should be the bench. I disagree with Lamb on the team, especially since he is starting to play LF on a platoon basis. No need.

I also hope a near week off for Mercedes doesn’t effect his timing. Wouldn’t mind a Mercedes 1B start to give Abreu his first game off tomorrow, with a second on the off-day Thursday. Clear the head and help heal his hand.

You can do a lot with Tim and Madrigal in the top 2 spots. If Tim gets on you can try some hit and runs since Madrigal rarely swings and misses.
