ANAHEIM, Calif. – Ozzie Guillen didn’t know what Wednesday would bring for yet another new-look lineup, but at this point he might as well pick names out of a hat.
The offensive struggles have now become an epidemic, with seemingly no cure. This team is all of a sudden very painful to watch and has 2007 written all over it.
The way it stands right now, if I was Ozzie I would lead off with Carlos Quentin (.399 on-base percentage - a team high), followed by A.J. Pierzynski and then Jermaine Dye. After that, throw in a little Joe Crede in the cleanup spot, followed by Jim Thome and then Paul Konerko. Nick Swisher would hit seventh, Juan Uribe eighth and Orlando Cabrera ninth, with the hope he can get on base for the top of the order.
