LF Desmond Jennings
CF B.J Upton
3B Evan Longoria
1B Carlos Pena
2B Ben Zobrist
RF Matt Joyce
DH Jason Kubel
SS Sean Rodriguez
C Robinson Chirinos/John Jaso....ouch defense
C Chirinos/Jaso, Sam Fuld, Reid Brignac, Brandon Guyer
Considering Pena loved Tampa and Kubel spent most of 2011 hurt, I have their prices down but also consider Boras when thinking of Pena...
I don't want to trade Upton because with our rotation, I think the addition of Pena and Kubel along with Upton's pop gives us a real chance
SP 1 James Shields
SP 2 David Price
SP 3 Jeremy Hellickson
SP 4 Matt Moore
SP 5 Wade Davis
I really want this rotation so I'm just going to ignore Neimann for now and have Cobb in AAA
Jeff Neimann (yeah, I remembered him, I want his best stuff for 1 or 2 innings, no more starts)
I didn't add any relievers because I think all the money goes to our offense but the bullpen suddenly looks strong to me. The 3 lefties but they are all different. Ramos should just be a loogy, Torres is a long man and McGee can put out fires. Farns, Peralta and Gomes should all be awesome again and since the 2009 ST, I have liked Neimann for the pen.
There might be a bit too much hope in my predictions but that's all they are, predictions. Amyone else want to put together our 2012 team?
