Somebody tell me JJ Hardy will be starting at short over Bill Hall.....?
He is, Hardy will be the everyday SS for the Brewers. The original poster's lineup doesn't look right at all. I don't know how it will look for sure, except that I highly doubt Weeks will hit 8th and I know Hall won't start at SS. This is what I forsee:
1 CF Brady Clark
2 SS JJ Hardy
3 3B Corey Koskie
4 LF Carlos Lee
5 RF Geoff Jenkins (not Geonkins or however he spelled it)
6 2B Rickie Weeks
7 1B Prince Fielder
8 C Damian Miller
I like this order because it goes R-R-L-R-L-R-L-R. But I get the feeling that the 2, 3, 6, and 7 spots are undetermined. Those four guys could go anywhere. Against LHP, Bill Hall will start at 3B and Koskie will be on the bench.
Anyway, I would rank the NL lineups as following:
Could move up (high potential) -- Phillies, Braves, Brewers
Could move down -- Cardinals (injuries), Giants (age), Dodgers (injuries)
