Ned's Glorious Lineup

Of all the things that won’t matter a bit once opening day gets here, I have to believe that the lineup of the first Spring Training game will be near the top of the list. Unless, of course, the lineup we see on April 1st is the same one we witnessed today. And I hope it is, because it was a great lineup.

  1. Alex Gordon
  2. Alcides Escobar
  3. Eric Hosmer
  4. Billy Butler
  5. Salvador Perez
  6. Mike Moustakas
  7. Jeff Francoeur
  8. Johnny Giavotella
  9. Jarrod Dyson

Ned Yost hit a home run by putting Gordon at the top and Francoeur in the lower third. What’s not to love? I’m usually quick to criticize a bizarre batting order so I thought that even though it’s only Spring Training, I’d show Ned some love.
