Playing A Little Pepper

Holy band-aid lineup Batman!

Carlos Pena is batting lead-off (see lineup below). Drew Sutton, who was playing for the Braves triple-A club a week ago is batting cleanup. The starting left fielder hadn’t played in the big leagues for 8 years prior to last week. Of the 9 hitters, 4 weren’t on the opening day lineup, and that doesn’t include BJ Upton who was on the DL to start the season….AND WE STILL WON’T BE SHOCKED IF THEY WIN


  1. Carlos Pena, 1B
  2. BJ Upton, CF
  3. Matt Joyce, RF
  4. Drew Sutton, 3B
  5. Luke Scott, DH
  6. Elliot Johnson, SS
  7. Will Rhymes, 2B
  8. Chris Gimenez, C
  9. Rich Thompson, LF
  10. James Shields, SP

Song to get you pumped up

In honor of the Rays lineup…





  1. Rob says:

    This does look like a spring training lineup.

    • Cork Gaines says:

      Not only a spring training lineup, but one of those spring training games in Jupiter where the veterans dont want to ride the bus that long.

  2. Chris D says:

    And even scarier is that of that lineup, Elliott Johnson has the 5th most ABs this season.
