*gulp* Left Field *gulp*
I can only hope that VanSlyke finds some way of keeping him conditioned/platooned so that he's not spending half the season on the DL.
I have to say that I don't mind the left side of our infield defensively... hell, they've got range all over, but offensively they've got to be the worst in the AL. Easily the 8th/9th hitters in the lineup.
So, until Detroit can find some way to get rid of Sheffield, Guillen will be playing in the OF, putting extra pressure on Granderson to cover both gaps. Sheff/Thames will likely get some starts there as well, but both of them are probably even worse defensively.
As for 3rd... no way MCab sees any time there. I'm guessing he'll come back into camp, even after the WBC, weighing in at what he did before he got to Detroit, and very very comfortable with his position at 1B.
