Saunders and Duke are lefties too

Miranda, Allen, Branyan, Saunders, and Duke aren’t left-handed anymore? =/

You missed Gerardo Parra, who is likely to make the roster as he is the only one that can back up Young in CF. (Well, unless you think Bloomquist will do the backup in CF)
Actually, I would go with Allen and Cole Gillespie platoon in left. Despite poor numbers vs. lefties in 2010 in the majors, it was just 50+ PA’s. He’s hit lefties well throughout minor league career.
Then they can platoon Nady (who can’t throw) at first as the short half of the platoon with either MIranda or Branyan, who does not have a major league contract.
But I doubt thats what they’ll do.

I didn’t realize how bad their rotation is….wow

The last thing a team should worry about are it’s bullpen and bench. Once you’ve fielded a competitive lineup and rotation that is when you should start looking to acquire the pieces that can give you those extra wins to put you over the top. So obviously the Diamondbacks who were one of the worst teams in the league have decided to rebuild by picking up bullpen and bench pieces. Enjoy the three to four extra wins that will buy you.

I guess if you’re a Diamondbacks’ fan, the key is hoping that Jarrod Parker is able to–at some point in 2011, hopefully–show that he has recovered and is able to pitch at or near his pre-injury levels, possibly even making his debut in the majors. At the very least, hope for no setbacks.
Parker and Hudson forming a nice(future) 1-2 pairing at the top of the rotation would be something good, given the state of the MLB team and not much else in their minor league system.

Rinal result: Division winners, Kennedy a runner-up for Cy Young, Parra entrenched in Left field, Roberts (tat-man) didn’t make the opening day roster, but ended up being the team catalyst, and Kirk Gibson with his “kill ‘em all, let God sort ‘em out” attitude is manager of the year.

So much for accurate prognostication! I guess this is why they play the game. Pitchers and catchers report in 38 days!
