WBC Line-up Speculation

Postby 1337_Dude » Mon Dec 05, 2005 8:59 pm

I figure with all of the World Baseball Classic hype floating around I'd start a thread to speculate Rotations and Starting Line-Ups. I'm only going to do the U.S. roster at the moment.
Here's the link for anyone else that's up for it http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/wbc/r ... nt=country

U.S. Line-up How i'd like to see it
1st - Derek Jeter, SS
2nd - Michael Young, 2B
3rd - Barry Bonds, LF
4th - Mark Teixeira - 1B
5th - Eric Chavez - 3B
6th - Vernon Wells - CF
7th - Jason Varitek - C
8th - Carl Crawford - RF
9th- Pitcher

Not sure if it's DH or not if it's DH
1st - Derek Jeter, SS
2nd - Michael Young, 2B
3rd - Barry Bonds, LF
4th - Mark Teixeira - 1B
5th - Eric Chavez - 3B
6th - Vernon Wells - CF
7th - Derek Lee - DH
8th - Jason Varitek - C
9th - Carl Crawford - RF

Rotation:
Roger Clemens
Dontrelle Willis
Jake Peavy
Roy Halladay
Sabathia/Pettite/Zito

The Bullpen is crazy so i'm not going to bother.

why would Derrek Lee not start over Teixeira? Better hitter, Better fielder and much, much better baserunner :-?

I like the line-up. This is a good team although I was hoping Wright would get 3B. Guess he's not established enough. :-[

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

acutally Tex was the better fielder last year and personally I think hes a better hitter than Lee, who just had a career year.

Personal preference more so then anything. The only thing I would say Teixeira is behind Lee is in baserunning and I'm not taking that into account from that spot.
