With the pending Adam Eaton return, I'm getting really excited to see what this "gritty" (want) team will look like. It got me thinking, what would the lineup look like once everyone is back and now that we have Didi playing out of his mind?
Here's my list:
1. Adam Eaton
2. Martin Prado
4. Aaron Hill
6. Didi Gregorious
9. Pitcher's spot
You may be asking why Kubel or Ross is hitting 8th, but if you look closely essentially we have two sets of "top of the lineup". Eaton and Parra are leadoff guys. Didi and Prado are good two-holes. Goldie and Miggy both have gap power for the three-hole. Then Hill and Kuble/Ross bat cleanup. It's almost as if you get to play the top of your lineup twice!
How would you stack em, if you were Gibby and everyone is healthy?
