After listening to Jed talk about where people might fit into the 2011 Padres' lineup, I could control my excitement for the season no longer. This PFOB is starting to freak out the people at the daycare that I walk by every day. Time to unload.
The only way I can actually envision this team, and dream about how awesome (or terrible) they might (or might not) be, is to try and guess what the lineup might be. Do we have a strong cleanup hitter? Can we bat so many left-handed hitters in a row at a right-handed pitcher that he has a mental breakdown on the mound? These are the questions I need answered, and I feel I can only answer them after I put on my Bud Black Thinking Cap and try my best to build lineups that will drive Sam insane.
That sound good to everyone? Well, too f**king bad......because I know it sounds good to Buddy.
