Today's Lineups

Two young and very talented starting pitchers face off this afternoon. Here's to hoping Bauer proves the better of the pair.

This is only the third time in his career that Chisenhall has ever started in the #2 spot, and only the eleventh time he's started anywhere in the top four. His production so far this season is not a fluke though, so it makes sense to put him high in the order and get him as many trips to the plate as possible. If he keeps playing every day, he should catch up to what it takes to be "qualified" by early July, hopefully just in time to be named to the AL All-Star team while sitting atop the batting race standings.

I sort of which Lonnie and Carlos would each be pencilled into the same position more often, rather than taking turns at first, third, and DH. Neither is a very good fielder, and it seems to me that'd both have a better chance for success if they were focusing on just one position apiece.

This is the final game in a short, two-game set. Let's hope the Tribe denies Kansas City the satisfaction of a sweep.
