The Lineup debate, updated

On Sunday, manager Dave Trembley
dropped a few hints about the Opening Day lineup, which caused me to speculate
about what that would look like
.

Today, Trembley basically said
Felix Pie will be the starting left fielder for April 6’s opener against Tampa
Bay. Trembley smiled when it was brought up that Monday’s lineup looked an
awful lot like an Opening Day lineup, minus Pie.

If that line of thinking holds
true, here’s what you can expect:

Roberts, Jones, Markakis, Tejada,
Scott, Wieters, Atkins, Pie (instead of Reimold, who was in Monday’s lineup),
Izturis.

The Rays are throwing
right-hander James Shields on Opening Day, so you could see the bottom of the
order shift a little. Honestly, I’d put Pie in front of Atkins, because I think
he’s a stronger bat. But that’s just my opinion.
