Opening Day Lineup

From The Heater comes the opening day lineup per Joe Maddon, remember Jeremy Guthrie is a right-handed pitcher.

Akinori Iwamura, 2b
Carl Crawford, lf
Carlos Pena, 1b
B.J. Upton, cf
Cliff Floyd, dh
Willy Aybar, 3b
Eric Hinske, rf
Dioner Navarro, c
Jason Bartlett, ss

 

It appears that Eric Hinske and Jonny Gomes will platoon out in right, making Nathan Haynes late game defense and pinch running his only real choir with an occasional spot start in left or center.

RF Platoon OPS v. LHP OPS v. RHP
Gomes .933 .746
Hinske .672 .799

We've talked sparingly about Hinske, but I'd put him in Jonny Gomes' category of mental stability and physicality, evidence A:

Jorge Posada Leveled (via yan2jt)

 

He's also known for cursing a lot. Perhaps our game threads will be Christened by a little four letter Hinske special?
