Wednesday Lineups vs. Indians


Philip Humber will presumably land somewhere in between his last two starts tonight against the Indians. While he’s busy doing that, Gordon Beckham will attempt to build upon the night he had yesterday and give us all hope that the year won’t end with Gordon Beckham on the bench or in another uniform. Word on the street is that there’s been a change in plate approach. Which makes it easier for me to cling to the wishful thinking.

Josh Tomlin will come to the mound for Cleveland. Tomlin faced the Sox once already this year and earned a loss in 5 innings of work, but did manage to strike out 7 batters.

Tonight’s Lineup:

1.De Aza – CF
2.Alexei – SS
3.Dunn – 1B
4.Paulie – DH
5.AJ – C
6.Rios – RF
7.Dayan – LF
8.Morel – 3B
9.Gordo – 2B

Paulie’s neck is stiff, so Adam Dunn gets another evening in the field, which should pretty much ensure that we’ll hear a lot of people try and credit his defensive use with his turnaround at the plate for 2012. I betcha. The Royals did us all a favor and defeated the Tigers today so the team is in prime position to finish the evening atop the AL Central shuffle.
