That is certainly a lineup I could see to start the season—assuming everyone is healthy. There is a lot of speed and athleticism on team. Pitching will be more trial and error as it sounds like there will be opportunities for the newbies to step in and contribute right away. I do think they have seen enough from Dunlop that a weekend role will be his to lose. Like the Gardner move since stamina was clearly an issue last year and the loss of Poulin is gonna hurt. Penders would have a lefty option with Gardner and righty option with Dandeneau to bridge to Wallace.
That would be a reasonable guess for the lineup. From the D1Baseball article and from what we saw during the fall ball games, it sounds like Phillips and his bat will often be in the lineup. D1Baseball suggests he will get time at D.H. and corner infield spots (he did get time during fall ball at 3B. I'm inclined to think he will be the primary D.H. It would seem that 3B is the most unsettled spot in the lineup, although it wouldn't surprise me if Moriarty at least gets time there as a late inning defensive replacement. I'm also curious to see how Christian Fedko works out defensively at 2B, considering he was often lifted for late game defense last season. Of course, Woodworth was a terrific defender at 2B, so that may have played into those defensive replacement decisions last season as well.
