Wilson v Blackburn
Guess this proves that Abreu isn't just playing due to Bourgos' sore hip.
MSP is sure going to be shock for a team that has spent the last month and1/2 in 80 deg weather.Hope they packed their long-johns and hand warmers.
OB is key. We have enough pop.
Trumbo is the odd man out, but Bobby will still have a nice OB vs rightys which means we would have to play him in LF once and a while.
The best scenario would be that Trumbo is in/ Wells is out.
This lineup will break things up... I think Trumbo should get an outfield glove ready! Leftfield and Right is where he should get some AB's.
"I was hoping Amarista would play, I don't like anybody sitting for most of 4 games."
Amarista isn't going to get any starts, and Izturis will get few. They are backup players.
Callaspo will be in the same boat in a month or two, after Trumbo becomes the primary 3Bman.
