If I were to make out the Indians lineup today ...
1.Asdrubal Cabrera, SS
2. Ben Francisco, RF
3. Grady Sizemore, CF
4. Victor Martinez, C/1B
5. Jhonny Peralta, 3B
6. Travis Hafner, DH
7. Shin Soo Choo, LF
8. Mark DeRosa, 2B
9. Ryan Garko/Kelly Shoppach 1B/C

-OK, this is what I would do. I know Eric Wedge will not go with this, because he insists on leading off a guy with 40 homers. Is Cabrera a leadoff hitter? Who knows? I just think it's more important to put Sizemore in an RBI spot.

As you can see, I also favor putting a better defender at shortstop, and putting DeRosa at a more familiar position.

But I don't think we'll see any variations of this lineup this year.
