Both of them completed in one week. This also means Taveras will likely start the season in AAA.
1. Carpenter 3B
2. Wong 2B
3. Holliday LF
4. Craig RF
5. Molina C
6. Adams 1B
7. Peralta SS
8. Bourjos CF
9. Wainwright SP
Arguably the best lineup in baseball with a very good starting rotation and a flame throwing bullpen/closer? I'll take it.
Lots of unknowns. Peralta and Bourjos coming over to a new league. Wong completely unproven. Adams has never been a regular starter and struggled in the post season. If the Dodgers get Price or Tanaka they would be the favorites in my opinion.
I think they'll get Tanaka. Thing with the Cardinals is they have crazy flexibility. If Wong doesn't work out this year, Carpenter can move back to 2B and Peralta can play 3B with Kozma/Descalso at SS. Jay/Taveras are ready for CF if needed. Craig can go to 1B and Jay/Bourjos/Taveras in RF if Adams struggles.
Motte set up guy for Rosenthal?
f**k..baseball can't come soon enough
