While I’m not quite ready to imagine what a Tiger’s defensive strategy will look like with Miggy at 3B (Oh look, another bunt up the third base line), but we did project the 2012 Detroit Tiger’s Lineup. We have projected quite a few other teams as well. We’ll collect them here.
San Francisco Giants 2012 Projected Lineup The Giants welcome back Buster Posey and add Melky Cabrera to their lineup. With Kung Fu Panda ready to break out and Brandon Belt making strides they should score just enough with the pitching they have.
Chicago Cubs 2012 Projected Lineup Outside of Starlin Castro, there is no way around the amount of depression this lineup induces. There are obviously going to be a lot of changes so in projecting it we tried to present at least a couple plausible solutions.
Los Angeles Angels 2012 Projected Lineup It’s now official that the Detroit Tigers and the Angels have 95% of the world’s DHs and first basemen in their two lineups. If in addition to Albert Pujols the Angels play their young players like Mike Trout they will correct their OBP fiasco of 2011.
St. Louis Cardinals 2012 Projected Lineup Goodbye Albert Pujols, but hola Carlos Beltran. No one is claiming it’s a wash, but the Cardinals made enough moves that they should still be considered a favorite in their division.
