I don't like the idea of Cabrera starting over Schoop but idk why they sign him if that's not the case. Cabrera has only had one good offensive year so I believe Schoop would provide more offense. Schoop also ended the year defensively leaps and bounds compared to where he was earlier in the season last year. Once he was given the 2B job he became a more consistent player.

LF. De Aza

3B. Machado

CF. Jones

1B. Davis

DH. Pearce

C. Wieters

SS. Hardy

RF. Snider

2B. Schoop

Would be my default. Even if Cabrera is the starter over Schoop it wouldn't change much, I don't like him in the lead off spot.

I'm surprised no one's said that lineups don't matter. Either some Hangouters are slippin', or they're getting nicer.

I would like to see Manny hitting 3rd at some point this year. If he's hitting 3rd on July 1, that means he's having a good year, which is a very good thing for the offense.

vs. R

De Aza

Pearce

Machado

Jones

Davis

Wieters

Hardy

Snider

Schoop/Cabrera

Buck would never have 3 RH bats in a row.

Maybe so. Jones and Machado don't have much of a career split differential, and Peace was good against righties last year. I guess Pearce behind Davis is the move if alternating R-L is so important, I just like the idea of getting Pearce's OBA in front of the power.

I agree with El Gordo about Buck not putting the 3 righties in a row.

I also think Pearce's OBA vs. RHP will fall this year. He seems more of a bottom-of-the-lineup hitter rather than top.

I like Manny 2nd against everyone.

I'd consider Pearce for leadoff against LHP, but he can hit down some against RHP to start the season. Maybe Manny 1 Pearce 2 vs. lefties if Buck thinks leading off would be too weird for Steve.

If both Cabrera and Davis play well enough to merit it, I could see Cabrera/Machado/Davis/Jones coalescing as a top 4 against everyone.

Schoop has a power bat which could give us 15-20 HR's which will come with a low OBP and a ton of K's. We have plenty of those guys. He will always be a below average secondbaseman but what we really need is someone who can get on base. Cabrera has been somewhat successful of that over his career. It's worth a shot.

What do you base this on?

Barring injuries this lineup is going to be so super fluid. It's not worth trying to figure out the one lineup. Buck has so many options.

3B: Machado, Schoop, Davis

SS: Hardy, Cabrera

2B: Schoop, Cabrera

1B: Davis, Pearce

LF: De Aza, Young, Lough, Cabrera

RF: Snider, Davis, Pearce, Lough

None of that includes Flaherty who could play every position. I think he ends up in AAA, where he is given a full time roll.

Below average at the plate. Good defense and strong arm. He's not going to be a star but just a bottom 3rd power bat. We really need more OBP.

I don't understand how you can predict his entire career off his rookie season.

I mean I sit hear and tell ppl I believe Manny will be injury prone throughout his whole career and I get a lot of negative responses. Schoop is what, 23, 24 yrs old? And you could already tell what he will be throughout his whole career?

Hopefully the Os hire you as a player evaluator. With you, DD, and Buck the future would be blinding!
