Jays 2013 Lineup
With the Cabrera signing, I'll be surprised if they do much else to their order. On opening day...what do you think their ideal lineup and order will look like?
Positionally, I have to think it would be...
The order......no freaking idea.
9. Whoever is DH'ing? Sierra?
I'm not sure about the #3 and #4 spots. I know that's where they liked to put em last year because of protection and all that. But the lineup right there to me is pretty ideal. Could probably swap Boni and JP.
Yeah I'd agree with this.

Exactly what I was thinking. Can you imagine Bonifacio then Reyes back to back every game. Jose would actually have some people on base for once....and hopefully none of them would try to steal home.
