Angels lineup around Pujols

Postby futurecubzplayer » Mon Mar 12, 2012 3:00 pm

I don't follow the Angels very closely, but I'm wondering who are the hitters that are going to be batting in front of and behind Pujols this year? And how much does their value increase with Pujols in the lineup?

Sporting news, I'm not up on if they have any injuries here:

1. Aybar
2. H, Kendrick
3. Torii hunter
4. Pujols
5. Trumbo/Kenrys Morales
6. B. Abreau
7. A. Callaspo
8. ianetta
9. Bourjos

This book came out in early Feb., I'm sure it's changed by now. I would move everyone up a tick but no big deal.

The main reason I answered your question was to remind you to keep an eye on sleeper (the word is out though) Kendrys Morales. He's trying to make a comeback and is in line to DH.

Above list seems wrong
Wouldn't Wells start instead of Abreau
And they want Trumbo to play 3rd which would mean no Callaspo

I am not sure the correct lineup but this one seems flawed

From MLB Depth charts

1 SS Erick Aybar**
2 2B Howie Kendrick
3 1B Albert Pujols
4 RF Torii Hunter
5 LF Vernon Wells
6 DH Bobby Abreu*
7 3B Alberto Callaspo** ##
8 C Chris Iannetta
9 CF Peter Bourjos

I could see Trumbo in place of Callaspo, and Morales, if he's healthy, in place of Abreu

This looks right. The top 4 are pretty locked in. After that it could go anyway based on match ups/streaks/etc.

I don't think their value increase that much with Pujols. Maybe Kendrick or Aybar get a few more runs but I wouldn't draft them much higher than they are going now.

I think Kendrick gets moved up the most vs where he was before the signing. He should be getting an extra meatball or two a week with The Machine behind him.
