So I know it is way to early in the season to say anyone is going to stay this hot or cold over the course of the season, but as the Royals you really need to stay hot. You need to make this team (and this fan base, in particular) believe that they can win and will , THIS year. The AL Central is not putrid, but is going to be a winable division by ANY of the 5 teams, if they get hot.
That being said, I think that this is the lineup that must be played at the moment until they cool off.
Alberto Callaspo - 2B - .433 OBP, .898 OPS (Switch hitter)
Coco Crisp - CF - .396 OBP, .990 OPS (Lefty)
John Buck - C - .476 OBP, 1.476 OPS (Righty)
Mark Teahen - 3B - .413 OBP, .888 OPS (Lefty)
Mike Jacobs - 1B - .629 SLG, .962 OPS (Lefty)
Mike Aviles - SS - second leadoff hitter (if that makes sense)
David Dejesus - LF - second second hitter (ditto)
Billy Butler - DH - second three hitter - (he can play 1st and Jacobs can DH, if you like)
Willie Bloomquist/Mitch Maier/whomever - RF - fills out the lineup...whoever you think can give you the best game that day.
I think that this lineup would give you the best chance to win day in and day out at this point in the season. You keep pushing the defensive side of the ball because with the way the starters are going, you just need to keep playing good defense behind them and build their confidence more.
First fanpost in a while, don't rip me too hard.
