How will the D-Rays look this year?

Postby dcskater619 » Mon Dec 11, 2006 6:46 pm

Here is my guess:

C: Dioner Navarro
1B: Greg Norton
2B: Jorge Cantu
SS: BJ Upton
3B: Joel Guzman (Iwamura if he signs)
LF: Carl Crawford
CF: Rocco Baldelli (Hollins if Baldelli is traded)
RF: Delmon Young
DH: Jonny Gomes

Is that what you all think too? What will the pitching staff look like?

Rotation looks like Kazmir, Shields, Niemann, Fossum & whatever they get for BJ or Rocco.

Shields is a nice sleeper, IMHO for 2007. Pitched pretty good this year. His motion reminds me alot of Jake Peavy. Hopefully he can pitch like the '05 Peavy in '07!

Hopefully the Rays sign Erstadt for 1B, BJ for 3rd. Dukes to CF to replace Rocco. Zobrist out of ST for SS, maybe Brignac if he gets a call up. Not sure where Iwamura fits in.

Of course, I have no basis in fact to support my conjecture.

Isn't Ty Wigginton still with the Drays?
I'd image he would get to start somewhere.

I think he just listed by position.

BJ Upton is off of SS for basically good. IF he plays in the infield, it will be at 3rd base, but more than likely I think he is at center field next year.

I see a lineup consisting of something like this.

CF--BJ Upton/Rocco Baldelli
RF--Delmon Young
LF--Carl Crawford
2B--Jorge Cantu
1B--Greg Norton/Ty Wigginton
DH--Elijah Dukes/Jonny Gomes
3B--Iwamura :-o (If he don't sign then I think the Drays just might hold onto Rocco, and Upton will be in this spot.)
C--Dioner Navarro
SS--Ben Zobrist

This is not a very good lineup once you get past Crawford in the #3 spot.

that's clearly not a batting order.
