I'm currently mutli-tasking, also writing an article on the women of Game of Thrones. I just got confused and wondered why Daenerys Targaryen was playing for the Diamondbacks today. Mind you, Brienne of Tarth in the clean-up spot should be good for 100 RBI. Aw, what the heck. Let's go with that as well, shall we?

  1. Arya Stark, SS - good table-setter
  2. Cersei Lannister, 1B - don't fall asleep on her
  3. Daenerys Targaryen, CF - excellent range, can spark any offense
  4. Brienne of Tarth, RF - powerful slugger, top-notch defense
  5. Catelyn Stark, C - good when healthy, but certainly a DL candidate
  6. Yara Greyjoy, 3B - the Iron Woman of the team
  7. Melisandre, 2B - Sedona Red Priestess
  8. Olenna Tyrell, LF - veteran presence
  9. Ygritte, P - can be wild at times

There should be baseball cards and everything. If you've never watched Game of Thrones, the above will make absolutely no sense to you. Just ignore it and pay attention to the game. It's on the radio.
