Hope everyone had a stellar thanksgiving, and I hope the roads treated you well...it took my wife and I 16.5 hours to make an 11 hour trip on Sunday, so needless to say...it sucked.
Anyhow, I have been reading a bunch of information on "the market" and where the twins are at, and I feel that I am no ready to make a prediction as to who we will see on the field opening day. So, without any further adieu...here is the ol' starting offensive line-up, plus the starting pitcher.
- Stewart - LF
- Mauer - C
- Piazza - DH
- J.Mo - 1B
- Tor/eye/eye - CF
- Blalock - 3B
- Ford - RF
- Cuddyer - 2B
- Bartlett - SS
OK, as many of you are yelling at your computers, allow me to make my justification. I really think that Piazza will land here, as much as I wish it was NOMAAAAH, it won't be. I think Piazza would take an incentive full contract, and work with the twins being he knows they could use a right handed bat at DH. As for Blalock, I know the twins are interested, being me and Ol' Carl are good pals...
He said, "mike...I want that Henry Blalock from texas...a nice boy he is. But of course...I am holding out for Williams!"
"wiliams" I ask.
"Yes mike my boy...Ted Williams!" responded Carl.
I then left Ol' Carl's office.
Honestly though, A little Lohse/Boof trade to Texas for Hank would make sense to me. A left handed power/average bat...and he has a glove. He isn't my pipe dream of Jorge Cantu, but hey, you can't win them all.
Frankly, I would be ok with that line-up taking the field.
Thoughts? Praise? Rippings of new a##holes?
