The Giants’ 2018 Opening Day lineup looked a little something like this:

That sure looks a bit different than the team we have now. So, friends, my challenge for you today is to craft an Opening Day caliber lineup with the current 25-man roster. You can do one for both right and left-handed opposing pitchers if you want, but for the purposes of the exercise let’s assume it is against a lefty. Here are your options:

Starting Pitchers:

  • Madison Bumgarner
  • Johnny Cueto
  • Derek Holland
  • Dereck Rodríguez
  • Andrew Suárez

Position Players

  • Nick Hundley
  • Buster Posey
  • Alen Hanson
  • Evan Longoria
  • Pablo Sandoval
  • Brandon Crawford
  • Chase d’Arnaud
  • Andrew McCutchen
  • Hunter Pence
  • Gorkys Hernández
  • Austin Slater
  • Steven Duggar

Who’ve you got?
