What will Dale Svuem's first batting order look like?
You know he won't trot out the Yost lineup, because (a) it wasn't working and (b) he needs to look different. With 3 straight righties from the Cubs, there's not a ton you can do with this lineup.
Here's a total stab in the dark for tonight's batting order from yours truly:
C Kendall (.500 career hitter vs. Dempster in 14 ABs)
2B Durham (5 for 9 vs. Dempster this year)
As usual, the leadoff position is tough. Hart has 0 career hits vs. Dempster, so I don't see him as a good play as a leadoff hitter. I could see Gwynn playing RF and batting leadoff, but as I am on record as saying that I think Gwynn is useless I'm not going to suggest that.
