Went back to Bags' Baseball America 2008 prediction for the 2011 lineup. Definitely glad this isn't the current lineup:
|First Base||Dan Ortmeier|
|Second Base||Nick Noonan|
|Third Base||Angel Villalona|
|Left Field||Fred Lewis|
|Center Field||Wendell Fairley|
|Right Field||Nate Schierholtz|
|No. 1 Starter||Matt Cain|
|No. 2 Starter||Tim Lincecum|
|No. 3 Starter||Barry Zito|
|No. 4 Starter||Tim Alderson|
|No. 5 Starter||Madison Bumgarner|
Interesting note from the article:
"The Giants also hired John Barr away from the Dodgers and appointed him scouting director"
"Lowry couldn't finish the season because of a bone spur in his elbow"
Final Note is also remarkably prescient:
" If it hope to contends in the near term, San Francisco must place some faith in its homegrown players, be creative in acquiring more talent—and get a bit lucky, too."
Sounds like a pretty good description of 2010 to me!
