Here's the Pirates' lineup.

1. Jose Tabata, LF
2. Neil Walker, 2B
3. Andrew McCutchen, CF
4. Garrett Jones, 1B
5. Ryan Doumit, C
6. Pedro Alvarez, 3B
7. Lastings Milledge, RF
8. Bobby Crosby, SS
9. Duke, P


It has the makings of a legit ML lineup, from 1-6 that is.

I like putting Doumit in the middle, break up the lefty-lefty-lefty if need be and take some heat off Pedro, to start. Although hopefully soon they'll bump Pedro up so he can see more fastballs. I don't think managers will see Milledge as very good lineup protection for him.
