I love Mauer batting 2nd. No more of 'play 2nd bat 2nd' regardless of how bad you are. Of course it's still going to be a painful season as a Twins fan. worley is the opening day starter. diamond is a couple of weeks away and Corriea/Pelfrey are next. okay and okay followed by yuk, yuk and yuk.
I like Mauer batting in the 2 hole also. If Hicks can get on base at a decent clip then Willingham/Morneau could post some nice numbers.
I just looked through the opening day lineups and Placido Polonco is batting cleanup for Miami. Has there ever been a worse opening day cleanup hitter?
