McTaggart says: This is the lineup

The lineup Coop put out there yesterday will be very similar to OD09's lineup. Regard:

2B Kaz Matsui
C Ivan Rodriguez
1B Lance Berkman
LF Carlos Lee
SS Miguel Tejada
RF Hunter Pence
3B Geoff Blum
CF Michael Bourn
RHP Roy Oswalt

I, with McTaggart, like this lineup. A couple of tweaks I would make: Flip Tejada and Pence and flip Pitcher and Bourn. Take the NL Central's view of batting a potential fire-starter 9th, to give Matsui someone on the basepaths. However, I think it's very obvious that signing Pudge was a big boost to the lineup. It could totally backfire, and Pudge could hit .210, but it's better than the alternative...
